Being poorly sick sucks. I have no energy to do anything exciting so having time off work is no fun at all. Can’t even meet friends for lunch as I know I’ll end up half dead with tiredness and they’ll probably end up holding my hair. YUK. I’ve missed important meetings and I am going to miss out on some fun events. Hmph.
However, it does have 2 clear benefits from what I can see.
- The extra pounds I’ve been carting around with me all 2010 are dropping off.
- I finally have time to peruse the net and find some new treasures!
My newly formed skinny (ish) self fell in love with a brand sparkling new website I came across today, “That Charity Style“.
It’s a year long project by freelance Journo Debbie Attwood, and she has to abide by one self-imposed rule…no buying new for 365 days! That’s right. No TopShop. No ASOS. Not even a sneaky birthday trip to Selfridges for Debbie. Oh no.
Every single garment (apart from knickers!) that she buys for the next year must be purchased from a charity shop or directly raise money for a good cause. Debbie is documenting her finds on her photo-blog, and would hugely appreciate tip-offs from you guys if you come across any hidden gems in the charity shop world.
Go check it out and lend the site your support. It’s a fabulous idea.
