It is the third weekend of the months and bare in mind that I normally spend most of my wages within the first two days and spend the rest of the month making wish lists for me to buy on next pay day. Not only this but my car insurance is due at the end of the month and for some reason I have decided to ignore it for the past year so need to find it all within the space of two months. With this in mind, I decided to go on a window shop with my mother. Window shopping is not a thing… I am sorry but it is not! When I am shopping online, I can restrain myself from buying it and I think it is a combination of being able to see your basket total and also there is always a doubt in your mind that it won’t be as good as you think it will be. Also, I am not the smallest of girls, so when I am buying clothes there is always a doubt that it wont fit, but if you buy a larger size it might not sit right! it is very difficult being a woman, not going to lie to you! In store, with the item in your grasp there is noway I can say no! So this is a very long winded way of saying I spent a lot of money that I really didn’t have to spend.
Home sense is one of my fave shops as I have mentioned before I am a huge candle person and their selection is amazing. They are the best smelling and you can even smell them when they are not lit. They do a great selection, but I went for the classic time of year smell of Autumn hayride. It has a sweet pumpkin smell, but with a background of lighter smells, so that it is not too sweet. I personally would say it is sweet and I do love the sweeter smelling candles, but it does have a good background so it has a bit more depth than your average pumpkin pie. I stupidly didn’t think it through when I bought them as it too big to fit in any of my jars and I don’t have a nice plate to let it drip onto. I bought two and even without them lit they are making mt flat smell beautiful! Also, another added bonus, they have a nice little wooden pumpkin on them that will be perfect for when I scapbook some of my favorate times of autumn.
Another love of mine is Stationary, so of course I spent about half an hour looking through all their notebook. I restrained myself from buying them all and only got one. It was very reasonable priced at £4.99 for a very thick little notebook. It is gold with a copper title to it of Bucket List. Its beautiful and I love making bucket lists and thought it would also be good to put ideas of later blog posts in.
I restrained myself, but Is strongly urge anyone to go to home sense! It feels me with so much joy when I go into the store and they have such nice quirky things, that you know there are a very limited amount of stock, so it is a less likely that everyone will have it. I’m so excited to get to pay day next month so I can go back and buy loads more!
