Finding Hidden Treasure – Sunday Supplement

I try to keep things pretty organised as far as my blog categories go. I like to keep it simple, which sometimes shoots me in the foot. You see, there are some posts that simply don’t fit in to the ‘norm’. There are also times when I feel I’ve posted enough and don’t want to overload you. There are also times when something weird/wonderful has happened and I can’t wait to share it. So what to do? *wrings hands in despair*

I think I may have cracked the category/posting problem. Welcome to a new category for The Barefaced Chic, The Sunday Supplement. It is my plan to share daft moments from my life, things that have made me laugh, posts that – for one reason or another – have not been posted during the week and possibly probably a whole heap of randomness.

I’m going to see how things go as to whether this will be a regular or sporadic feature. Either way, here’s today offering – I hope it makes you smile.

Finding Hidden Treasure

A few weeks ago I spent a day channeling my inner pirate. Which mostly involved answering the phone with, “Ahoy matey”,  wandering around the house threatening to swash Mr Chic’s buckles, or make him walk the plank, trying to make a cup of tea with my hook (well, as Mr Chic refused to pop out and buy me a strap on pirate hook, I had to use my finger) and overzealous use of the word, “Arrr'”.

What caused this shiver in me timbers? Why I’m glad ye asked matey – I found hidden treasure! Over rough seas and under stormy skies I did travel. Many dangers I faced in my quest to line my pockets with doubloons. And a few weeks ago, in the depths of the darkest sea, in a rusty old trunk I found it. Aye, there was many a rum drank that night!

OK, so I actually found £75 of M & S vouchers that I had forgotten about. They were buried in the back of a junk draw though, so it was kind of like finding hidden treasure. With a vast treasure trove lining my pocket, last week found me wandering around M & S wondering what to buy with my pieces of eight. It was a bit of a tough decision, I fancied quite a few items – I’m a bit disappointed at the lack of eyepatches and parrots on offer though 🙂

Here’s what caught my eye:

Black and white tops at Marks and Spencer.
Marks and Spencer Autograph Makeup.
M & S cashmere jumper
Trousers and jumpers at M & S
Necklaces at M & S
Cosy wrap.

And here’s a sneak peek of what I bought:

After plundering M & S, I came away with quite a stash; which I’ve already styled and worn to a blogger meet-up. Moral of this story – sort out your cupboards for ye may be the one finding hidden treasure me land lubber. Oh, and channel your inner pirate – if only to confuse your loved ones 🙂

I’ll be sure to put together an outfit post starring my booty soon. I am now off to have my timbers well and truly shivered! Until next time – smooth salin’ to ye.

And remember:

    What a brilliant post Michelle. And a great idea to have additional blog posts too. I was in M&S yesterday actually and found several tops that caught my eye. I can’t wait to see more of your purchases xxx

      Thanks Lizzy.
      There’s quite a lot of wearable choice on offer this season from M & S. I’m not a bit M & S shopper so I was quite surprised, and pleased.

    Maybe I should sort out my drawers more often… but usually I only find a “1€ off product x” voucher – no longer valid and for something I’d never buy anyway :-)))
    Love the colourful necklaces, they remind me of summer and holidays, something I am only dreaming about right now!

    Have a lovely week and I look forward to more Sunday Supplements!

      It’s usually the same for me, I was amazed when I found usable vouchers!

      I did purchase one of those necklaces, it was so pretty I just couldn’t bear to leave in on the shelf.
