Ouch! I'm so amazingly sore after the gym today.
Did quite well and if I go on like I did my butt and
tummy's gonna be rock hard. :))

Here's a few things really made my day today...

1. I did my first haggling on Etsy! :D
During the weekend I won a really cool pineapple
shirt for my man and I've had my eyes on a dress
with the same print on Etsy for months, sadly it
was sold as I was gonna lay my hands on it.
But do not feel sorry for me because last night I
found another dress with the exact same print, a
much nicer model but a bit more expensive so lil'
ol' me sent the seller a nice message asking if she
would take an offer and if so reserve it for me.
So this morning I saw that it was reserved for me!
Oh happy day! :D
(I love when me and my man match, it's so nerdy.)
The seller said she liked my approach and gladly
let me have it for $4 less. YES! :D

2. Best thing today must have been when I met
an English Bull Terrier in town and I got myself a
nice proper cuddle. Sidney was his name.

3. When I came home there were three packages
waiting for me by the front door.
It was a DVD, a pair of gold Lurex pants (that I'm
gonna revamp into capri pants) and three square
bamboo bangles. - All eBay finds.

Gold Lurex pants, £6.99
Not 1950's but I even if I got the money I wouldn't spend
$100 for a pair of pants.

I got a 1960's gold Lurex dress for 10 pence at a jumble
two years ago but I still haven't got around to turn it
into a pair of capri pants so this will do for now.

Bamboo bangles, £4.99.

I been eyeing bamboo square bangles too.

They are not vintage tho so that's why I got them so cheap.

Bamboo bangles has really shoot up in price lately, guess it's because of the retro trend.

Yeah, I really miss my old Bullie so everytime I get the chance to get a good cuddle I take it. :))

Thanks Yolanda. :)
I wish they were vintage Lurex, they sparkle more than these.

I would be glad to have stick legs, I'm of the short and curvy gene so I can never ever get slim. :))

Aw, thanks. I wish I had some serious cash to spend on carved bakelite and vintage Lurex but it's just not my style. I'm not poor but I feel sick spending too much. :))
