Haha, luckily I'm paid to overthink brands and what they mean ;) I hear what you're saying, but what I think I was trying to say is that I'm bored of the homogenity. I just like being able to say 'shiiiit, where you cop that?'. As for HUGE brands, I realise that being mass doesn't mean bad (as long as you don't poison children in the developing world to produce low cost products for Western markets). But the signals associated with Heinz beans are slightly different to your 'status symbols'...
Haha, its yours. I will bring it in on Tues x

Natch. You know me, always forgetting about the evil, evil things that go on this world.
I really haven't done very well with posting everyday, have I? It seems every post is destined to start with an apology. Oh well. I will carry on trying. But the ring! Ah, it is a thing of beauty.

Statement necklaces are a bit too much for me, and plus I tend to wear high-necked stuff which would just fight with a giant, living necklace. So it is my hands that become the centre of attention, which I think they enjoy. This one's... Continue reading

Oh dear, I managed to fall short of my one post daily target on the second day. Not really the start I was hoping for. To make up for it, I present you with the beemer of wallets, the beautiful Lara Bohinc number that means I can't take a bag smaller than a suitcase anywhere. No it really is a behemoth, I should have taken a picture with a ruler eBay-style. It's super-size means I can carry about 80,000 receipts around with me wherever I go. Bought after an early morning queue at the Lara Bohinc sample sale (when's the... Continue reading

These are by far the dorkiest trainers I own, but the ones I wear the most. I walk to work and back (5 miles in total) almost every day so I have to protect my feet. And these are just more comfy than retro trainers. Plus don't want to batter the soles of my nice trainers. I am actually embarrassed when I bump into someone I vaguely know and want to apologise for them. That's pretty sad, isn't it? If you look closely you can see the puke stain from where I last threw up on myself due to excessive... Continue reading

Thanks, that's good to know. It seems like the mobile companies are the leaders in this field, probably because of the high rate of churn + the 18 month contract/upgrade cycle.
