Irregular Choice: Star Wars Floral Artoo

This week I have the first of my in-depth reviews from the Irregular Choice Star Wars collection, phase 2! No fancy photos I'm afraid, I've not been feeling up to it and couldn't put my hand on anything thematic for the setting, so ordinary pics it is. You can find photos of my other R2D2 heels from this launch (Battle With Artoo) on my feet, over on The Shoe Girl Diaries, though I still have those to review here (and Day Of The Trooper). irregular choice star wars floral artoo back view with box

M.E. On: Have You Tried?

myalgic encephalomyelitis discussion banner
I'll admit I thought twice about posting this. Maybe even a third and fourth time actually. I've realised while I have an opinion on many things, I don't really like confrontation or causing conflict.  So, I knew talking about this would ruffle a few feathers, maybe hurt some feelings (even though mine are hurt every time this happens!), but it's not directed at any one person.  If you suffer from a chronic illness like M.E. or CFS, you'll probably be nodding at your computer screen reading this, others might not realise this existed or that it was an issue, so I'll try and explain it as best I can.  Though this letter (pictured below) probably illustrates it far more eloquently than I could. Someone gave it to my Mum after ripping it out of a newspaper insert, thinking it related to me. Despite liking the person that did this, the second my Mum said "oh I have a newspaper clipping for you..." my eyes rolled. Here we go again, I thought. However I read it and as I got to the bottom, I fully expected to see my name as the signature! It sounded exactly like something I would say or my inner thoughts at least (remember I'm too timid to voice it out loud). It really resonated with me and while I'm glad to hear I'm not alone in fielding this advice, it's sad and annoying it's so commonplace.

Irregular Choice: Thermidor Handbag

Hello lovelies. After all the excitement of the Star Wars launch (check my post here if you're still in search of sizes), I'm back with another handbag review from the SS16 Irregular Choice range. Last time I spoke about Flounder, a new shape in my collection, however Thermidor is my third of this style. I was completely hooked after my first (Purfect Pose), so am always eager to see if there's a new colourway each season. irregular choice thermidor bag front

Where To Buy: Irregular Choice Star Wars 2

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. irregular choice star wars stockists where to buy worldwide uk
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!

Review: Jolen Creme Bleach

jolen creme bleach
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.
