FRUSTRATION & FASCINATION // THE WORLD'S HAVE COLLIDED.

So today has been a thoroughly enjoyable day, with the regular laughs in certain lessons, and I was super cheerful since I had popped into Primark yesterday, and found my black jumper (the same as the one stolen) hiding at the back of a rail. So of course, I snatched it up, rather too cheerfully! So that was a very exciting thing, but I am rather frustrated with my camera. It's focus is playing up again, and an entire video I had (actually three) are completely useless and bin-worthy, so my frustration is mounting increasingly. Not only that but my laptop has spaced out on me and refuses to boot. Oh the frustration! 

But in more cheerful news, my replacement items have begun to arrive, and it is so comforting to be able to open up parcels containing items that I have missed terribly over the last week. I even managed to get another River Island stud bag, but instead of being black, I got one in beige, and for only £1.04. Used, of course, but I'm not a snob when it comes to bein thrifty, after all, some of the best things I have ever gotten have been second hand, including a genuine leather RedWall Moschino Letter Belt, which was only £3, and I sold on for £151! Sadly, the belt did not fit me, so of course had to be sold on to a new home! I do very much wish it had fit me though, it was stunning and of the highest quality! 

And because I could, I picked up a Primark letter necklace, now to use who are not in the know, these are the newest trend, and I spelt mine out to say:

"Sam"
"TGCF" 

Why? Because that's my name, and my blog's initials! And because I adore the fact that the necklace was only a fabulously feisty £2.50! (And yes Ben, you can get one to spell your name, since we all now you love your ladies jewellery for a bit of bling on a night out!) 

 Not enough time in the day!


All the best, 
Your loving host.

ONE FOR THE RECORD // A NOTEWORTHY DAY.

Whilst at college today, my mum decided to go and buy me some 'replacement' items for the ones that were stolen, one of those being my cheap and extremely cheerful £2.99 H&M Hairbrush. To my utter surprise and thrill, my mum came home with the exact same brush!
 
Sadly, my Primark jumper didn't have such a happy story, they had sadly sold out, but I hold out hope that it'll be restocked, but she did come home with 2 pairs of Super Cosy tights (yes, the ones with feet were in stock!!), a pair of leggings from Primark (I had an H&M pair with so many holes in!!) and a few other small goodies to help restock me.
 
She came to pick me up today and brought my favorite childhood staple: Milky Way Magic Stars! Oh how I wish I'd put up a photo of them on my Instagram, they were so gratefully received! My mother certainly knows how to cheer me up. I think I owe her a few rounds of dish washing and cook her a few meals!
 
So yes, I've been thoroughly cheered up, what a lovely way to end the day.
 
I hope you all had lovely days too? Comment below and tell me what you got up to, or write on my Facebook wall.
 
Lots of Love,

THE GREATEST PRAYER IS PATIENCE // LOSING HEART.

After having a completely sleepless night, I am feeling better this afternoon. I've been given some tablets by the doctor to help with my heart rate too, so I should be feeling better soon enough. Needless to say though, everyone still really misses their items, and the cost of replacing them is mounting. I am so angry that some items that were completely worthless to the thieves were stolen anyway, like my brand new black Primark jumper that was part of my mini haul video, and tonight I've just realized my favorite Strawberry Tart scented model's own nail polish was in the handbag that was stolen too. It's pretty sick, since my only item worth money was my ipod, why the hell steal an entire bag for just that? Why not rifle through and just take that?
 
I hope the police catches them. I know I have my opinion as to who it was. And I have a description in full on record.
 
I don't feel angry, again, just hurt. I'm so grateful to the support of the kind friends and family I have, who have shown their kindness to me, and helped me through this petty crime.
 
And I apologize to my blog followers, and YouTube subscribers, I just haven't had the heart to blog recently, and my physical symptoms have meant I haven't wanted to be recorded or photographed.

MY HANDBAG // THEFT IS AN AWFUL THING.

I feel so violated and sick. Thieves, if you're reading this, know that forensics are checking your fingerprints as I type this. How dare you take 5 bags from a college mini bus. What is your problem? What makes you think it's ok to take my stuff and that of my friends? My bag? My wallet? My iPod? My toy pony that I've had for years. What the hell gives you the right to take the photo of my grandma who died in 2011 and was like a second mother to me? Whose death caused me to develop an illness? You stole my jumper? What the hell is that about? You took from someone with an illness. How does that make you feel? Nothing? Void? That wouldn't surprise me. You're clearly low-level with no heart at all. Seriously what in the hell gives you the right? That photo meant the world to me. I don't give a damn about the rest, but my grandma's photo and the pony? You sick, sick people. If karma exists, I'll be happy. You think you've got away with this, but forensics will track you, you're not clever enough to get away with crime in under 5 minutes scotch free. They will find you, I know it. And for taking my friend's bags? What a weak willed and pathetic, truly petty crime. No real human being with a soul steals things containing things like that, things with sentimental value, things that are worthless to you, and everyone else, except to the people you stole from. No-one.
You don't have a heart. You're heartless. Disgusting. Not even human. How does that feel? I'm not angry at you anymore. You weren't worth it. I'm just upset. If you have any goodness in your heart, you'll hand yourselves in. I reckon you probably never even went to school and got an education did you. You probably never had a loving family, and if you didn't, I'm truly sorry for you. But that doesn't mean it's right to take other people's things. 
And taking a mathematical calculator? How silly! You rifle through the bag, take the calculator and leave the bag?! That's not clever, is it? It only had the owner's marks and yours on it! So why would you do that? If you anonymously hand the items in to a Police Station thieves, and forensics find out it is you, I won't press charges. Why? Because that's the kind of good natured person I am. One good deed deserves another. So please, if you don't want them, hand them in anonymously to a police station, anywhere. Please. I will forgive you. I won't press charges, ever. I won't even hate you. I won't feel anything. I'll just be grateful you have the goodness in your heart to appreciate your actions were hurtful and unnecessary. So please, if you don't want them, please hand them in. Thank you, if you read this.
 
 
 
I just had to get this out there. These mean people need to be stopped. It's so unfair. 

 

 
 
 
Thank you for reading guys. I just had to tell the world how I'm feeling and warn people. Do not leave your items unattended. I've learnt my lesson.

A SMALL APOLOGY // EXPLANATIONS.

...Basically just wanted to apologize that I haven't been posting as regularly as usual, I've been super tired this week, and college has been really 'full-time' so I've not been as inspired to post lately, although I have become rather attached to making videos for you, so if you're in need of a fix, you can check my YouTube channel, where you can find all my three videos. I've currently got videos #4 and 5 in the works, so stay tuned to see those, although I'm not feeling great camera-wise today, so whether or not OOTW vlog will go up, I'm not sure. I think I'll leave that to my day off college on Friday so I'll be feeling, hopefully 'fresh as a daisy' and won't feel too unhappy about being on camera!
 
Even if I'm not as active here as I am as a YouTuber, I'll  still be posting, just maybe not as often as I'd like, afterall, I am a full-time student, and juggling it and my favourite thing to do (blogging)is a little harder than I'd anticipated!
 
Have a beautiful rest of your day guys!

IT'S OFFICIAL // WE'VE REACHED MAXIMUM CAPACITY.

Yep. My wardrobe has reached maximum capacity. It's a 2 door wardrobe, and you'd think that'd be enough for one girl? Wrong. Well, for me at least. So, I just ordered a second wardrobe from Ikea. I'm shocked that I need that much space for my clothes, but it's true. I cannot fit one more item into my wardrobe! So, I am *very* excitedly awaiting the arrival of my new wardrobe! Finally some more space!
Had a great day, took some photos and enjoyed the sun, also read my Geographic magazines, which were fascinating!
Here's the OOTD:


So yes, as you can see, it's been a fantastic weekend. Cannot wait for next weekend, but college will be good too!

Ciao!

THE DAY OF GOOD FORTUNE // ONE IN A MILLION.

...why? Because so many good things happened! Namely, a package I am waiting on from eBay which I was beginning to fret about has been confirmed as dispatched with a valid tracking number, a different parcel arrived, AND I got into town to get my new glasses (Thank you Jill of Specsavers, you're my hero!) And then I got to Primark for the first time in 3 years(!!) to find so many things I needed and wanted, so I came home with QUITE the haul (thank you mamma, who bought me everything from Primark, since I'm quite skint this month after going overboard with my parcels!) So of course, this weekend, you'll be getting the OOTW (Outfit's Of The Week), plus a VLOG all about my hauls for September and October thus far!

 Having a good day? Yes, yes, I am. Check out these blueberry muffin scented nails  that I am donning this morning:
 
 
 
Hope you've all had a lovely day!

TOTO, I DON'T THINK WE'RE IN KANSAS ANYMORE // SATC ADMIRATION.

Well, yesterday was a truly rubbish day, but I won't get into it. Lets just say I shouldn't go on eBay and browse for new things when I'm in a awful mood! I end up spending more than I should! What's done is done now, and I do not regret my purchase, even if it was on the expensive side :P 
I managed to cheer myself up with:
1. Retail therapy
2. Funny Scottish Fold Cat YouTube Videos ('cause which cat lover doesn't find funny Scottish fold videos a triumph for mankind? And cat kind alike! I particularly loved watching Namiko and her friend Mango on their YouTube videos, if you haven't already, definitely check the pair of them out! Such beautiful little ladies!)
3. Nanny McPhee 2 - The Big Bang. Yes, admittedly it hasn't got the quality that we experienced from the first one, and is so unrealistic in many scenes that it leaves you rolling with laughter, but it is touching, and we can all relate to that, even at the best of times.

These three things changed me from livid to relaxed, laughing and smiling. These are just a few of the things that help me destress and relax. I just wish my parcels would arrive, I'm so nervousexcited for them to get here. Especially since my budget for shopping has been totally blown this month. First time I have ever spent more than £20 on nail polish in one spend! Haha, at least I got an epic haul from it! 
And since there aren't enough photos today, have some Carrie love, saying exactly what I am thinking.



Well, have a wonderful day to all, and I apologise for being a bad photo blogger, I guess I don't get as much time as I'd like to show off outfits, but I promise that this weekend will be devoted to getting at least one VLOG done, and at least one photo, if not more taken!

Ciao!
