I've stopped shopping in stores. I much prefer to order it online - from the comfort of my own home, try it on when it arrives - from the comfort of my own home - and return it if it's not right - this has to be done at the post office, but 2 out of 3 ain't bad!

Hooray for Fridays! Every week needs one!!

Is it too early to start eating chocolate/sugar??

Thanks everyone, have to get through 10 days of prac first and at the moment I feel like this Just not enjoying it as much as my previous pracs for a variety of reasons and feel like I'm being patronized by one of the staff members each time I have a question as if I should know the damn answer, felt like bursting into tears at one point today as a result

Love hearing about the health kick! I'm such as sucker for junk food but its only in sporadic bursts lol I need a fun sized chocolate to get me through prac though, thats my vice haha Should also add in some exercise to be fit for all the running around in the US

Haha sooo true!!! I'm quite petite on top but have curvy hips and detest trying clothes on because nothing ever fits the way it should! It if nice on top, its too tight across the hips and if the hips work, its too baggy on top

I wish someone would just fix the standard clothing size already!!! I think everybody has a range of at least 5 sizes they can fit into, what the hell I have a range of sizes I willingly try on and if a size in that range doesn't fit I refuse to try it on out of principal Pants are usually the culprit in places like Kmart where the sizes are on the smaller side...

I'm "normal"ish on top then bottom half is aarrgghh I don't wanna talk about it (like any female when it comes to her hips).
Kmart gives me the irits, jeans made in china for people sized like 8 year old boys, not for women from European baby bearing family lines

I don't even buy Kmart clothes, not because i'm a snob but because their sizing is ALL wrong...

Hahaha EXACTLY!!! I have a few Kmart tops but the quality is quite shocking so won't waste my time again. I think the kids clothes are very cute though

I nearly died trying on a pair on pants in there for the first time in years last year, the size that is usually slightly big on me in Target (because the size below is just that big uncomfortable to wear lol) would not even do UP in Kmart, a good inch between the zippers
