Confessions Of A Shopaholic


Rewind 2:45am 7th March
Eyes wide awake, Insomnia has hit me like never before. My body is knackered and suffering exhaustion, seeing as I have been on clockwork mode for the past 3 days without proper rest...and yet, here I am wishing for daylight so I can lose my mind in the midst of all Fashion has to offer me: - To think I actually believed nothing excites me.......

Rewind 9:00am 7th March
1st stop.........the bra shop, to get proper fitting....and boy did I get the shock of my life.......The results should excite me, but no it didn't, it actually upset my mood.
I dive into the deep end.......8 Lasenza's later I'm feeling all good with myself  J
Next Stop........The West End!

Rewind 11:23pm 7th March
1 suitcase full, a couple of missed trains and buses, a freezing butt with sore hands & feet, this dame still has her game, but all I need right now is sleeeeep

Today 20:00pm
With half a suitcase more.......At this rate I might have to cargo more than one suitcase.........Gosh....There are just so many things to buy! I'm drooling over my new collection of shoes......I think I need help here, 11 pairs and counting....with a more than a week to go.......I'm off to bed right now.....It's me and Westfields Tomorrow.


I thank God I don't live in this city......
Little does my bestmate know, but I am dragging her along with me come her day off!

Tigeress said...

Sirius, the credit crunch is dealing with some of us so the mall is a no no for me.

So are u shopping cos u're travelling somewhere or just adding to your wadrobe. Shopping is very very good therapy.:)

~Sirius~ said...

@ Bumight....1st (I think you're beating Temite to this)

@ Worked at West End! Never....I'll lose my mind!....I hope this insomnia doesn't last too long.

@ CaramelD On second thoughts she might slow down my shopping, so I've let her off the hook....of which the Olympic body should include shopping as a sport!

@ Buttercup..Sweetheart Not at all....What size do you wear * praying really hard we don't have the same shoe size.....*evil grin.

@ Temite...so who made you a CTU/ FBI agent now, ehn? lol. Special invitation for Temite from Winchester ...he he he.

@ Mizchief......Thievery no be small I tell you.
Hmmm being mischievous are we? CSI should employ you and Temite....lol

@ Funms....If they will make you sleep at night I'll send them over ASAP!

@ Tigeresss.......I tell you it's so therapeutic for me, overhauling my wardrobe oh...it's long overdue.

@ Nefertiti....For you I'll do anything, what be your request.

@ Rita........Nope! For wearing by my cute little piglet feet.

@ K....I can imagine, This is an annual therapy session, can't afford it as a lifestyle.....just yet. LOL

@ XSN....Uhm, That would make both of us, as you are also guilty of being a shopaholic.

@ RocNAija....NO recession here...I'm in Sirius's Planet.

@ Shona......you sure learnt a good lesson....I don't think I'd be able to do that.

@ Doug (Mr. Run away)...let it be....I'll carry the whole store.

Smaragd said...

I am so beefing ryt now!

Smaragd said...

lmao @ miss DM! Credit crunch cereal! lol!

Bondgirl said...

I humbly come to apologise for the oversight...how could I ever leave your name of dedicated readers?? Maybe I can convince CG to send you a Balenciaga bag to cover up for this mishap?.....of course I realise you are not materialistic so said bag won't cover up the pain but it could go towards making you smile just a little bit..right?...lol

MissLove said...
