 Images from Accessorize

Dear Accessorize, Can you please add a drop dimension to earring descriptions on your website? Please. I just can't tell from an image on a white background how big they actually are. I'm not a fan of big Pat Butcher style earrings, I prefer something more subtle. I was certain that what I had ordered would be of the less-than-an-inch-drop variety but I was wrong. And now, thanks to the fact that I can't return earrings for hygiene reasons (which is fair enough) I have two pairs of earrings that I will never wear and I'm £20.00 poorer to boot.

Is a drop dimension too much to ask? Or do I have to refrain from buying earrings online? Shame as my local Accessorize shop isn't much bigger than my cupboard under the stairs and obviously holds limited stock...

Oh, and you sent me the wrong purse. I ordered one with stripes, not sequin birds. *sigh*

Dear Weather, Please warm up, please warm up.

Dear Self, Please remember that you don't have to be at your desk for 12 hours a day in order to prove that you are working hard. You're doing just fine. Now, remember to eat and go outside once in a while...

Dear People with Young Children, Not all restaurants are family friendly. If you let your kids run around, shrieking in a restaurant they will think that it is okay do so so. It is not. Teach them that a restaurant is a place for staying in your seat, using your 'indoor voice' and displaying good manners. My parents managed to make me understand, so I'm sure you can do it too. If you can't, please go to Pizza Hut. Thank you.

Dear Cineworld, Turn the heating up please, I can concentrate and the enjoy the film all the more if I can feel my toes.

Dear Style At Every Age, Thank you for bringing Amaretto and cranberry juice to my attention. My best friend also thanks you (despite our hangovers).

So here we are at the end of another week. I had great fun at the clothes swap last weekend. I picked up some great bits that I can use for my next swap and found a rather lovely summer dress for myself (yep, I absolutely do need another summer dress (no I do not)). I'll post my latest swapping finds soon - as soon as I find a minute!

Linking up with Friday's Letters


Have a great weekend
