Thursdays Treats: Costco Trips & Nipple Slips

May 23, 2013

OK not really… but it rhymed and made me laugh! Oh Christ, I need to get out more. Actually it’s a sad, sad state of affairs when the highlight of your week is going to Costco with your Mother. But I’ve never been before and that kind of stuff generally excites me. Pacing up and down the aisles wondering who on earth would ever need to buy 12 packets of spaghetti or 72 loo rolls… and where do those people store it all?!

This week has just been a bit dull though. Everything I needed to do really just required me to be glued to my computer… writing, rewriting, organising, compiling… all that fun stuff. So I’ve got nothing too thrilling to report today although I did buy enough green juice to hydrate an army at Costco and apparently I’m going to be quoted in the Daily Mail’s You Magazine on Sunday. I must remember to leave my hovel to go and pick up a copy…

Note to self: Must try harder to keep up the pretence that being a blogger is an exciting and glamorous life. Hum, maybe next week…

    Interesting article about the bride wearing her mum’s/grandma’s dress- I’ll be wearing my mum’s dress when I get married in August. It’s a bargain at the cost of a dry clean, really nice to have that continuity, and amazing how it fits perfectly, too. My mum had it tailor made in Eastern Germany in the 70s. And no, it doesn’t look like Kate’s 😉
    There is something nice about having your own dress as well, so for the evening I’ve bought a 1930s dress (a flea market find). I have to say, having read a number of your recent articles I am mighty glad I never even set foot in a bridal boutique.
    Anyone else wearing their mum’s dress? (or their nan’s?)

  2. i really love the bride in her mum and grandmas dress… i wish i could be as tiny as my mum AND grandma on my wedding day so i could wear either of their dresses, but i was blessed with curves hahaha!

    i also loved seeing the owl and the pussycat themed ideas… so cute!

    well . . .i cant decide which is my fave part of this post… oh yes i can!! who knew a song with the words ‘even if i farted and followed’ through in could be so lovely?!?! haha and im not wearing my nannas dress! as much as i wouldve loved to as it was stuning, and similar to kates actually, but i am wearing a £75 vintage one form the 30’s and i cannot wait. bridal boutiques werent for me either! 😉 ahhh i think you deserve to have an award on your mantel piece! xx
