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!
