Stuff and nonsense

Saturday, 19 March 2011

This could possibly seem a little desperate but yesterday I listed some stuff on eBay - if anyone fancies donating a few pounds to a pauper, click here to check it all out.

Buy my wares, children?

Things I realised when embarking on my eBay adventure;

- I am a ridiculous hoarder; some of the stuff I've listed has been in my wardrobe literally for years and the majority of it has hardly been worn. I didn't even have any intention of wearing most of it again, I just hate parting with stuff, plus, a weird part of me always thinks "oh it could come in useful for fancy dress" - you know how I love fancy dress. Even so, when your wardrobe is busting full of clothes you had when you were 17, you know it's time to start getting rid.

- It is incredibly difficult to take good photos of clothing, or at least, I, with my extremely limited photo skills, think it is. Seriously, how do online stores manage it? I spent the best part of an afternoon photographing my stuff and it still mostly looks rubbish!

- Listing stuff is boring. So very, very boring. Anyone who manages to make a living just from selling stuff online must have the patience of a saint. I only listed ten items and by the time I'd finished I wanted to kill myself. (not literally, of course, but it was seriously bloody boring).

Do you ever sell things on eBay? How did you get on? Good/bad experiences? Let's share!

On a separate note, I went into Superdrug today to check out the new Sleek Avoir La Pêche collection - I really want the Paraguaya palette. Sadly, it had either already all sold out or they hadn't got it in yet as the shelves were completely empty. Not impressed. However I did mosey on over to the GOSH section and bought the absolutely gorgeous Special Edition Lavender Love nail polish. Oh my days, this is such a stunning colour! I know a lot of people were trying to find a similar cornflower blue polish to the one in the Rihanna "What's My Name?" video and I really think this could be it!

Rihanna's nails - not keen on the length, LOVE the colour! Also, does anyone else think "What's My Name?" sounds like a song about someone with amnesia? "Oh na na, what's my name? No really though, what's my name?!"

GOSH Lavender Love, in Superdrug right now for £4.99. Eeeek it's so gorgeous! Imagine it with a matte topcoat too, perfection!

Right, I'm off to start getting ready for tonight - got Open Mic Night with my Glee club (yay!) then a bit of a night out on the tiles afterwards. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, whatever you're up to!


  1. I'm pretty sure it's impossible to take good pictures for eBay. I have so much stuff to sell on there but it's such a hassle I can never be bothered.
    Damnit I want that Sleek palette now! Grr being in Austria!
    No, srsly guise, what's my name?

  2. ha true, and Drakes voice is too whiney in it "oh hey away we guooyyyyoooooo"

    Have fun tonight!


  3. ah love this bluuue!

    Helen, X

  4. Firstly, I'm checking out all your street style links on your side bar because I've only heard of three of these *trots off to have a gander...*

    Ebaying is such a 'mare! It takes me aaages and then I'm always really paranoid I've listed it wrongly...

    jazzy ♥

  5. I got obsessed with ebay for a while... I find a good way to entice people is to take the photographs against a light plain wall. Like, in my spare bedroom I have a nail in the wall with a hanger and just throw the clothes on there. For some bizarre reason it looks nicer. Random, but meh!


  6. yaaay this is sooo like rihannas polish, must snap it up immediately!!xxx
