With the pledge already broken (pledges aren't my forte)I'll continue along the tiresome theme of me being an unemployed day time tv bum and how much I yearn-howling-at-the-moon style for my fashion career to return and finally how skint/broke/poor border line homeless I am (Okay so the latter is hugely exaggerated I'm camping out with mum and dad.I was about to move out depart from the nest,cut this pesky 25yr old umbilical cord and earn some major adult points),so here I go...

Second week into unemployment,and things very average everyday things are becoming a bit tricky.Money isn't everything,money doesn't make the world go round...all this is BS.I can confirm.Such pointless yada yada's that escape the mouths of the a) comfy middle class,b)unemployed,inexperienced Jobseeker allowance virgins and c)materialistic types who consider themselves not to be materialistic at all...hmm why are you not naked then living in a shed,living off the land?Pah!
Little materialistic things have always provided me with contentment.Going for coffee(has anyone else yet tested the Costa Coffee choc brownie double hot choc?Bliss in cup).Browsing Boots and abusing my points card,snooping clothes sales to sniff out my next style fix (no actual snorting was ever involved-may I add).Without paper in your purse sure you remain allowed to enter clothes shops and have a flick and riffle through the sale rails.However there is an limited time period to do so,before your pressured and intimidated by store security to check-out.Failure to do so will result in you making an cameo appearance on Crime Stoppers.Jeez I was only have an innocent looksee around,when I became a victim of stalking!No more flying solo.Second time round I decide to tag along with some employed friends.*Awkward*
Overwhelming feeling of inadequacy (newly adopted complex) dominates the rest of my non-shopping shopping afternoon,I milk the last five quid out of an old Xmas giftcard of mine.Splashing out on a yellow sherbet nail paint complete with polkdot lid and,and that was it.
Deflated,depressed,depleted I turn to my drawing scrap diary in time of therapy and in desperation to obtain THAT (see above) sunny embellished Riverisland clutch in some way or other I make it my drawrobe want.Um the new wardrobe want alternative...?
