    I'm interested in what people buy themselves as treats or replacements for comfort eating (or is just me!).

    This weekend for some reason I came home from the shops with a bright pink cartridge pen!

    What 'out of the ordinary' type things have you bought recently?

    I bought myself a dress from Ebay for £2, to modify and customise at home. Size 14

    I also am going through moisturiser at a rate of knots. So next on the list is a nice skin oil/moisturiser.

    Forgot to mention - I also bought one of those sausage things that you use to take your hair up in a pleat or a bun. Needless to say it didn't work, but I passed a good half hour trying (£4 down the drain!)
