7 Days, 7 Looks - and my shop

Go to keep it short and sweet, it's 5.18 am and I have been awake for an hr. I hate it when I can't sleep. I lie there for up to an hr and then get up. This week I have been surviving on around 6 hrs sleep per night which is wrong for me - I need around 7 or 8 (or so I thought!). Why am I awake so early each day? Because last Friday I bought a small amount of jewellery/clothes/scarves and thought I'd resell online. It sold out pretty much within 72 hrs! So I went back again this week to buy more and some pieces have sold out again within 24 hrs - I can't buy enough right now!  So that is what has had me waking at 6am each week day and freaking 4.30am on a Sunday. If I could, I would arrest myself right now, for a crime against sleep deprivation, I would! I guess this is what adrenalin does for you! Also in amongst playing shop and having fun I have neglected my day job (nothing to do with Avenue 57 at all)

What is the shop you talk of Fiona? Oh, thank you for asking, here it is!
Stock is low, more coming this week when I buy and fashion bags arriving next week - tres exciting!


So, back to what I do in my spare time - take photos of what I wear and show you!
Here I am over the past week...





Here are my favourite looks from other gorgeous ladies from Avenue 57 ...

So, what goes out the window when you're excited/stressed? It's sleep for me every time which is just annoying!

  1. I survive on 6 hours most days or less. And still I don't think there is enough hours in the day. I'm like you though, if I have something on my mind, I get even less sleep ... but the adrenalin rush feels good doesn't it? Well done on your shop though! Right, need to get cracking on mine ... after going swimming this morning with the kiddiewinkles - something which I truly detest. And no, I won't be posting any pictures of me anywhere in a swimsuit!

  2. It is sleep for me too. I get to sleep fine, then wake during the night and thats it ! Usually get lots of stuff done instead of sleeping as I hate just lying there thinking. Makes me crosser and crosser. Great shop! X

    1. I can handle 6am wake up but today was 4.30am and that is just wrong! I got out of bed at 5am and have done all the silly tasks that were bugging me! It's now 7.42am and I have done lots! Next, the ironing pile which is as tall as I am right now!!

  3. Oh I think you'll be back to normal in a week or so...there's alot of adrenaline going on as the shop is SO exciting and going so well. You'll settle into another routine soon. Fingers crossed.
    Shop is FANTASTIC - well done. Love my new purchase :) Also loving your looks from last week, esp the one with the black jacket & cropped jeans. You've inspired me for today - thank you! xx

  4. LOVE your shop, nice products at good prices, you should have a stand at Spirit of Summer, just to add to stress levels and lack of sleep!

    1. I am going to be doing some local events here, coffee mornings etc (was going to do evenings/wine nights but I can't NOT drink if I'm at a wine night and I hate leaving the house at the end of the day!)

      I don't need anymore stress!!

    2. I'm sure that you will do really well, if I went to someone's house instead of Starbucks, I would think nothing of spending a twenty quid, it is less than a price of a round of coffees after all!

    3. It's exciting and fun and for me that's the main part!

  5. I've got an over active kind too & seriously need an off button. I think 6 hours is my average but Friday night I managed 9.5 hours which was bliss. So pleased your shop is going so well, very exciting times :)

    1. maxi dress is just too much on show - ok with scarf but underneath the boobs were indecently out :-(

      Might chop it up and make it into a skirt
