A Post-Driving Test Treat

If you've read my previous blog post you will know that I've had a reason to celebrate recently. Now before you all turn up on my doorstep clutching glasses of champagne and party poppers, I'll let you in on a secret. I'm not a mahoosive fan of drinking. There, I said it. Call me boring if you like, I'm just yet to find an alcoholic beverage that I actually enjoy (although I did have a glass of Prosecco the other night and I was pleasantly surprised). Anyway, instead of getting completely bungalowed on a bottle of bubbly, I decided to treat myself with a bit of online retail therapy. First stop, Harvey Nichols. You might not think it, but I'm actually pretty clued up with shopping and I'd say I buy the majority of the things I own in the sale or at a discounted price. Part of me doesn't believe in spending hundreds of pounds on a handbag as I really don't think I could justify it - I'm only a sales assistant in a shoe shop after all! So after browsing on Harvey Nicks, I came across what must have been the cutest Marc by Marc Jacobs bag I've ever laid eyes on but my heart sank when I saw the price. What does a girl do in this situation? Do you guiltily click "add to basket" and dread the moment you check your bank account or do you think sensibly and exit the tab ASAP vowing to never tempt yourself like that again? Well, I did neither... I simply opened a new tab and went straight onto eBay.

OK, so you won't always be able to find what you're looking for on eBay, but more often than not there will be someone out there selling that very item you've been pining for. You probably know what's coming next... I FOUND THE CUTE MARC JACOBS BAG!! It was brand new and still had its tags intact with zero bids and only two hours left, so I spent the rest of my Saturday night glued to my laptop screen refreshing the page every few seconds like a madwoman. Judging by the following photos it's fairly obvious that victory was mine and I won the auction, and I saved around £120 just by shopping around!

What do you think? I love that it's both black and off-white as it can be worn for both smart and casual occasions. It's currently still on the Harvey Nichols website here for those of you who might fancy having a little nosey!
