Sunday Spotlight - 17th August 2014

In my life this week…

Pink Zara Coat

A few months ago I saw the most beautiful pink coat I had ever seen on the Zara website. I completely fell in love with it, but decided I’d have a think about buying it, as it wasn’t cheap. Unfortunately, when I actually decided I was going to treat myself, I went back to the website to find it was out of stock (says something for going with your gut feeling!) I e-mailed Zara to see if they were still selling it, only to find out they wouldn’t be getting any more stock. To say I was devastated was an understatement! I tried to accept the fact I wouldn’t be able to get my hands on the coat but I couldn’t get it out of my head, so last week I decided to have a little browse on eBay, as I know with some Zara outfits they sometimes end up being sold on there. I was obviously destined to own the coat because I found a lovely seller who had them in all sizes. I quickly popped one in my basket and a few days later it arrived, beautifully packaged. I’m so excited to wear it when the weather gets a little cooler!

Wilko stationery

When I’m looking for stationery, the last place I would have thought to look was Wilkos. But just recently I received some gifts from my work for when I start college, only to find out they came from Wilkinson’s. I was so impressed that I decided to pop in when my Mum took me on a shopping trip this week. I was so impressed with the range of products they sell and at such amazing prices, so stocked up on a few more bits and bobs. I will definitely be popping in whenever I go past a store to see what lovely products they have on offer.


I generally try to keep my Sunday Spotlights cheerful, but I also think it’s important for me to be honest. The last week or so my depression and other mental health problems seem to have taken a massive nosedive. I keep crying; I go to sleep hoping I won’t wake up and my head is full of horrible thoughts and feelings. I’ve had to come off Facebook because I can’t cope with seeing everyone else doing things I want to be doing. I don’t feel I can be myself there any more. I’m just not good enough and people don’t want to hear me moaning, so it’s best for me to just not be there. I feel sad about it because it’s my only link with the outside world a lot of the time, but it just seems to cause more stress, which I can’t cope with. I feel like I’ve got nowhere to turn at the moment. I see a CPN once a month if I’m lucky, but apart from that I’ve lost all my support. So, I’m just trying to get through a day at a time because at the moment, that’s all I can do.

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!


  1. That pink coat is gorgeous! And I'd never have thought about looking in Wilkos for stationery either. There's a huge one in Sunderland so I'll have to make PJ take me next time we're in town, ha.

    1. Thank you Nicola - I'd definitely recommend looking in Wilkos! You'll have to let me know if you find anything nice :) xx

    1. Ah you did comment hun but comments have to be moderated before they show up xx

    2. Oh fair enough. I'm not used to my comments not popping up immediately so I thought I'd filled out the numbers wrong/the internet had had other ideas.

  3. Oh that coat is gorgeous! Such a stunning colour xx
