Boucle Jacket

Jacket: Primark, Dress: New Look, Boots: New Look
I tweeted this week about a very successful and bargain-ous Primark trip in which I got seven items for £7. This jacket was one of them. I've seen it in store since it made its d├ębut back at the start of AW12 and on many a fashion blog. Its original retail price was £25 but I didn't think the quality justified the price. I know a lot of people are commenting on the rise of Primark prices these days, but if people are continuing to spend, they're unlikely to lower them if it's working! The jacket was reduced to £10 a few months ago but I still wasn't sold, however when it went down to just £1, I thought why not. I actually bought two because £2 is far better than £50 right?!

Part of me is tempted to start doing Primark hauls with all of my bargains as they're one of my favourite YouTube videos to watch - and I always like sharing when I get bargain. However I'm not comfortable at all with being on video - I'm usually the one doing the filming rather than being the subject. Maybe if I could get around having my physical face on show...

I've had a very 'blah' weekend, I'm trying not to wallow too much and be positive but I've become a bit stuck in a routine. Whilst part of me loves the security of my day-to-day life, I feel like I need to do more with my life and live it rather than thinking 'Oh I'll do this at some point...' It's an over-used saying but 'Life's too short' - we need to make the most of the moments we have with the ones we love and recognise the great times when they're happening, and not just afterwards when they are then memories. Sometimes you read dozens of inspiring quotes, but rather than just reading them, it's time to act!
