The second Irregular Choice Star Wars collection launched online today at 12pm. I am pleased to say the online queue system worked wonderfully on the IC site and we were able to look around and shop in a virtual orderly fashion with no crashes or slow running pages, whoop! Seeing as my Alice post was so popular last time, I thought I'd list current stockist information of which styles and sizes are available from where. I didn't do it this early last time, so obviously the numbers are going to change considerably throughout the day and over the weekend, as it's the first day. Physical stores won't be getting stock until next Wednesday (1st June), it was only online that launched today. I will keep updating this page as more stock arrives/returns are made, so keep an eye out.
This time I've also split the stockists into UK/Worldwide, so you can easily choose between them. As always, remember goods coming from overseas are subject to customs charges/import duties and these can vary depending on the total value of your order and which company is delivering. Some of these sites offer low or free postage to overseas buyers, but you do have to consider customs as an extra. I'll again link to this Facebook group and also this one, where private sellers will no doubt be listing their purchases if they didn't fit or they ordered more than one size. Auction sites such as eBay will also likely have some styles, but sellers often have to charge considerably more than rrp in order to recoup their costs, due to fees from both eBay and Paypal. I've written sizes below as they appear on the websites-so some of the American sizes will need converted (others already show the European size) and remember the likes of Schuh call a 36 a 3.5, whereas Office and IC call them 3's. Schuh offer next day delivery for just £1 and they will arrive tomorrow (Saturday) if you order today before 10pm, they also offer Sunday delivery for £1. Otherwise standard delivery is free, Scorpio and Office are also free and Monday is a bank holiday, so not all postal services/couriers will be operating. Pah, do they not know we are desperate to see our shoesies?! Some of the styles from the first SW collection have been replenished in limited numbers on the IC site, but I haven't linked to those. Also check out the exclusive R2D2 colourway available from Think Geek at the bottom of this post. If there's anywhere I haven't mentioned, please comment below and I'll add them to the list for everyone to see. Go forth and buy!

Hola chickadees, another beauty product up for review today. Jolen Creme Bleach* is one of those classics, though I have to admit to never trying it before. It's a gentle bleaching product that can be used on the face to lighten unwanted hair. A great alternative to more permanent solutions such as lasering or waxing and it can also be used to lighten eyebrows.

I've been awaiting the big launch of new season bags from Irregular Choice. I'd seen previews of a couple and knew they were going to be spectacular and when they were released a couple of weeks ago, they didn't disappoint. I decided to buy Thermidor, a lobster bag in a shape I already own a couple of, which I'll review next time. Today I have Flounder for you, a new shape for me, though it has been around for a few years now.

This past week and a half has been difficult for me. My parents are away on holiday for a fortnight, leaving me and my younger sister at home. She works full-time and I generally only see her for an hour or so at night as she has her own things to do, so mostly I'm on my own. Positives first, I'm really enjoying the peace and 'freedom' that comes from being on my lonesome all day. When I first fell ill, nearly 14 years ago, both my parents worked, so for many years I was home alone. It took some adjusting when my Mum gave up her work and more when my Dad retired a few years ago. My Mum talks (or sings) non-stop (total genetic thing), so it's tiring when I have to listen or talk to her whilst trying to write something for the blog or read emails. It splits my concentration, which is already depleted and takes more time and energy to do what I'm doing (different story when she is concentrating on something, but hey ho). My Dad (sorry) is really annoying to live with and also quite deaf, so conversations are constantly repeated and voices raised and the TV is always blaring (even when he's not watching it). He goes stir-crazy if he's indoors for longer than an hour (!) and generally drives me round the twist. I've had discussions with him before about noise and bright light being an issue for me (I suffer from migraines), but he can be pretty selfish and takes the huff and says his home isn't his own, blah-di-blah, so I back down. I guess there is sometimes that feeling that I am a guest here or at least that if I were well, I'd be elsewhere. I don't like "taking over" or being demanding, but at the same time, I'm suffering and often it's unnecessary or could be helped.

Now that I'm back to regular blogging, my weekly Irregular Choice posts have returned! It's been a few weeks, so I thought I'd better come up with a corker of a photo for you! I actually bought two handbags from the new SS16 range which arrived this week, but I haven't had the chance to edit the photos yet, so I'll review one of those next week for you. In the meantime, I've been desperate for a photo of all my IC bags together.
