When I first started buying vintage I was alittle grossed out about the thought that the items may have decades old dirt and bodily fluids, but then I discovered the power of Borax and the difference in price.

Pearl Lowe @ Peacocks

I love this vintage style dresses at Peacocks priced from £35-£50. And the recent documentary about illegal immigrants in the UK acting as sweat shop labour for the British high street in the UK wont put me of either, as that's nothing new. The immigrants help feed the market by choosing to work here illegal and insure the workers salary remain low, or put people out of work. While the companies want to make bigger profits with each year.
I have never aspired to be a machine worker, a day trip to an official New Look Factory in Leicester put paid to that. Rows and rows of people sewing the same part of a garment together over and over again.

Have you heard about "the Secret

If you are American you have probably heard alot about the Secret by Rhonda Byrne.
Well I had only heard of this, last Friday when I was stuck on the 123 for 1 and half hour detour. I meet a young woman called Hayley who had been reading The Secret and swore it had changed her life, she was beaming with happiness and being stuck on a bus for an extra an hour and half should have made me very grumpy, but in fact I was very happy. Today I logged on to Amazon out find out about the Secret. Some say its a crock and if you want enlightingmnet and spiritacity join a religion as the book takes snipets from Religion, others say there are better books out there. Me I say I will look out for it in the Library, a book can not change my life, it can change how I see things, but a self help book cant physical give me a job interview.

Yes I have an eye of a few things just need to wait 2 months longer for the splurge.
