Words Don't Do This Justice...

As you are all aware, I'm sure, I love a good bargain and the buzz you feel from getting something at a fraction of the normal cost. Nothing brings me greater pleasure on a shopping trip than finding that deal. 

On Wednesday, before I went to sit my first college exam, I was wandering around Dublin. Now, if you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I had a run in with Debenhams and they had to refund me €44 for the Naked 3 pallette I never actually got, though I bought and paid for it. So I had a bit of extra money in my bank account as a result. 

When I went into TK Maxx I went with the intention of getting myself a new wallet, but the choice was slim and I drifted over to the shoes. Thats when I saw them. Black suede, silver studs, straps all over. Mother of God, they were perfection. I lunged at them (no joke!!) and saw they were a 3.5 - exactly my size when it comes to heels. Then I realised, they were Jeffrey Campells. Holy Shit! They had to be too good to be true. I flipped them over to have a butchers at the price tag, and when I saw the reduction that was it, decision made!! €27.00. 

Nothing has made me happier in ages than the thought of a designer shoe for a knock-down price, especially these babies. I snapped a pic and sent it to Kayliegh of Kayliegh Land fame and she immediately replied with "Cute". When your mates approve thats it, you can't pass up a deal like that. It was fate. 

I ran to the till, paid and immediately relaxed, because they were officially mine. I could not have been happier. But wait, theres more!! 

Do you want to know how much they were reduced from?? I bet you do...

€259 euro. A total saving of €232 euro.

Bow down, and venerate my fabulous bargain!! 

Have you gotten any steals lately??

10 Day Challenge Day 3: 8 Fears

#10 secrets // #09 loves // #08 fears // #07 wants // #06 places // #05 foods // #04 books // #03 films // #02 songs // #01 picture of yourself.

8 Fears. God help me. 

8. Being Alone. I am deathly afraid of being deserted and left alone with nobody. It makes me shiver just thinking about it. 

7. Failure. I want to be a successful person, who kicks ass and takes names. I was distraught when I failed my driving test. 

6. Medical Procedures. Christ, the thoughts of having any kind of surgery or treatment where there are...instruments (bleargh) used... Nope. Cant be doing with that. Thanks, but no thanks.

5. Heartbreak. I think this one is pretty self explanatory

4. Panic Attacks and Depression. I've beat Panics, and still have struggles with depression, but I'm terrified of them creeping back up on me again.

3. Moths. This one is a bonafide PHOBIA. I f**king hate them. I cannot even cope with that bit in The Silence of The Lambs... *shivers* 

2. Being Murdered/Raped/Kidnapped. I've read books about Josef Fritzl, about murder cases and the whole kit'n'caboodle, and I am terrified of being the victim of anything like that. Even being mugged is a fear. 

1. Growing Up. I'm 21 years of age, have been standing on my own two feet since I finished school, don't rely on my parents for money or anything of the sort and yet, the concept of being an actual grown up adult person scares me witless. 

What do you make of my fears?
Tomorrow, 7 Wants!
