I ‘m watching Pride and Prejudice Zombies as I am writing this. I don’t know why I never watched it sooner because I like it! I sometimes get pissed when they remake a classic, so I tend to avoid them out of spite. I am rapidly running out of things to watch though, so I thought I would give it a shot.

The line-up at Zara today was an hour long wait for me to return the jacket and jeans that I bought from the sale. The jacket didn’t have a lining and I intended it for a fall jacket. You need a lining in your jacket here in the fall so it was just a waste of money. I ended up ordering this blazer instead for the same price. I have had this in my shopping basket for around 7 months, and when they further reduced it at the sale I grabbed it. I also exchanged the jeans for the same cut but in the lighter wash, I like the look better.

I read that thousands of people showed up at Stonehenge for the summer solstice yesterday. I am officially adding that to my bucket list. It seems to be growing way faster than it is getting crossed off, I hope I can change that this year.

So I am a complete sucker for infomercials. I love that store that sells all the things they show on tv, and I think I want one of these. Look how easy it cleans the bathtub! I hate cleaning the bathtub. Do you think it really works?
