As it's full on sale season I'm introducing you to my mate Bargain Bev...she’s a bugger for a ‘good deal’. She loves to shop in the sales and TK Maxx is one of her favourite shops. She has wardrobes stuffed full of clothes many of which still have the tags on, dresses, tops, trousers, jeans, t-shirts, jackets, coats... – you name it. 
She’s got all kinds of boots and shoes too and more handbags than you can shake a stick at. She absolutely CANNOT resist a bargain. 
 
The Lure of the ‘WAS’ Tag... 
She can’t leave it there for the price and because it’s in the sale or TK Maxx she feels that it’s a bargain. She is lured by the ‘WAS’ numbers on the price tag i.e. was £113 now £27. She impulse buys and because she can’t resist a bargain it’s compounded by the ‘it might not be here next time I come’ mentally. Her shopping focus is on how much she’s saved not how much she’s spent on stuff she didn’t need. Ring any bells??? 
 
She LUUURVES a Bargain... 
This means that she might buy things that don’t even fit - unless she loses half a stone or has the leg length shortened. (But she never gets around to doing either of these things.) So the bargain price isn’t so much of a bargain anymore because it’s £113 worth of a pair of trousers that Bev only paid £27 for to just gather dust in the wardrobe.

Are you being kept prisoner by your clothes? Do you sometimes wish you looked different but feel scared to try anything new incase your friends or family think you look 'different'?

It’s February and our thoughts turn to Valentine’s Day and all things romantic. But my question to you this week is do you LOVE yourself enough? And how do you show it? How many of us love ourselves (and I don’t mean in an arrogant, show off type of way)? 
How's 2017 treating you so far? Have you watched any telly this week? How many programmes about diets and losing weight???!!!!
