March 14, 2012


It’s almost Mother’s Day and with being at University we sometimes forget about our parents back home. My sisters and I used to make my mom breakfast in bed and bring her flowers on Mother’s Day. But last year I didn’t have chance to go home. This is where sites like Moon Pig, Funky Pigeon […]

The Sales Have Started..

December 29, 2011


One thing I look forward to after Christmas is the January sales. The next loans are in and it’s time for some retail therapy. But each year the post-Christmas sales seem to get earlier and earlier.
