Choose life

This week I have been to a local town called Rawtenstall (pronounced rotten-stall) and I must say that I have never really noticed how great it is as it has loads of charity shops, a market, 2 vintage boutiques - the vintage circus which is at the back of a cupcake shop and vintage cou cou (not been in this one yet), Sunday Best - which is a tad expensive but still nice and Bolthole which sells nice stationary, books and quirky stuff. 
I always moan that I don't live in a place with good shops etc. but I think I have just not bothered looking for them.

However when I went this week I only bought one thing due my lack of money because I'm still saving for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (just over 2 weeks now!!!)

Round 60s sunglasses - Market dressing up stall

This morning I went to a car boot sale and found nothing apart from a camera which was old and really used and were selling it for £5 which was a bit much seeing as I only had £7 on me. I also went charity shopping and nothing there either. I need a proper shopping spree (20 days until I can!!!) and to go to Topshop.


Also how amazing was the Olympic opening ceremony? I wasn't going to watch it because I thought it would be rubbish but, Danny Boyle you so proved me wrong! I literally screamed at the TV when the Trainspotting clip came on because I totally forgot that he was the director. It was amazing!

  1. Charity shopping makes me happy so much, you can actually shop without feeling guilty! And everyone seems to be skint at the minute including myself. Loving this John Lennon like glasses. I have a pair myself I like to whip out on those special musical occassions.

  5. Haha, the Olympics opening ceremony was amazing and I thought the Rowan Atkinson bit was very funny. It was great how England pulled together bits from their history and pop culture. Also, isn't it wonderful getting something from a charity shop? You feel like you just got such a wonderful deal!
