Retail therapy

At long last, it has arrived! I was like a giddy school child when our Karlsson flip clock was delivered last week, where I was distracted for a full 10 minutes at my desk, flipping all the flaps.

But what broke my heart – once I told husband I had ordered said clock two weeks ago, he fessed up and told me he was planning on ordering it for me for Christmas. Queue avalanche upon avalanche of guilt. My heart is still sore. He’s so sickly thoughtful.

The clock looks tres teeny and out of place up on the shelf. Also, from that height everything is reflected in it, especially when you’re on the couch. I’m thinking of hanging it below the shelf, next to the tv, which completely eliminates light reflection. P.s. sorry for the shoddy graphics today folks. I’ve been too pooped to dedicate time to Photoshop this past week. P.p.s. Batteries are to this clock as cocaine is to Charlie Sheen. It literally eats them by the pound.
I had recently been on the hunt for a new bag. This is probably not a big deal for regular ladies, but considering my bag for the past two years was a €2 charity shop find, I needed something a little more ‘grown up’. However, it turns out I am picky as fuck. It took me three weeks and just as I was giving up, this little burgundy number c/o Mischa Barton popped up. Yes please. 

I couldn’t not post a picture of these IKEA Margareta slippers. All I will say is don’t be so quick to judge. They are literally duvets for your feet. Seriously. Perfectly reserved for couch snuggling for this time of year.

And lastly, a bit of bling. I’ve been a bit obsessed with this cardigan clip from New Look. It makes me feel like a fancy librarian. I had something similar to this installed in my chest a couple of years ago {microdermal implants}. I’ve been contemplating writing about them. They were basically {semi} permanent jewelry, except my skin rejected them after a year. But that’s a story for a different day …

Well homies, I’m feeling a little under the weather, so I’m looking forward to heading home after work and sticking some girly Christmas movies on – The Holiday, Bridget Jones, or Love Actually. Plus a massive bowl of something yummy.

    That flip clock is amazing. I think i'll have to make some subtle hints to my boyfriend as he's stuck for a present for me for my birthday.

    I agree, it will look cool hanging from just under the shelf.

    Also, I hope you're going to be blogging about those piercings you had in your chest? I am very curious!! 😀

      Why yes I will be. I think it'll be a post suited for the new year. Hopefully no one thinks I'm a freak though!

      p.s. I find you have to be as subtle as a shotgun sometimes with gentlemen.
