When life gets you down!

Last week was the biggest FAIL ever! Some things just happen one after the other and when there not even that bad, they always seem to get you down. It was filled with disappointment after disappointment.
For instance I had a great weekend away planned and then it all got cancelled, getting a fantastic job (of sorts) and then to have it taken away. Or simply missing the last train home from London - by literally 10 seconds - and having to pay £50 for a cab home. To add to that my new Next satchel (seen here) rubbed against my new dress and a made a hole!
To save myself from curling up underneath my duvet or crying on my Mum's shoulder (i'm a drama queen), I decided it was the perfect excuse - like I needed one - to haul myself to the shops for a shopping treat.






Have a fab Monday

Hugs & Kisses

shopping therapy is the best! hope things are better this week.

Susu Paris Chic said...

Life does play tricks on us sometimes, but hey you are not alone. Good things is that you share, don't hold everything tightly inside. And then the sun comes out again. A little frock indulgence is good too - you did the very right thing.

Cindy, fashionsbeauty said...

Hope this week is better than your weekend! Retail therapy is only the BEST therapy, those clogs are fab! xoxo

Abby said...

I'm so very sorry to hear about that. Retail therapy in this case is very very well deserved. I hope things start looking up!

Alexandra said...

Jeez that must be one hell of a bag for it to make a hole!

Awwww, that sounds rubbish, what's going on with the job? Once I got a great job offer (after 2 gruelling interviews) only to have the manager phone me to say he was moving on and so the job in his team no longer existed - grrrrr! But what's meant to be is meant to be - something better will come along. xx
