We've recently bought a new car (an Audi TT called Arnold!) so naturally, I have wanted to drive anywhere and everywhere to get a good go behind the wheel.

. Last night, I found myself browsing the internet and came across something called Lost Stock Box... due to coronavirus, brands have cancelled orders for over 2 billion USD worth of clothes that have already been produced leaving workers unpaid, and at risk of starvation.

I have been a little quiet on the blog front recently as I have an exam for my LPC on Corporate Finance coming up.

Since lockdown has started, I have REALLY struggled to resist online shopping. In fact, I've failed miserably and have been giving in to the temptation far too much. In bid to stop this, I have started a new blog series called 'Online shopping without the spend" with various editions for different shops where I will list items that I would love to add to my basket but will not be buying. Of course, I had to start this series with my number fave, my BAE of online shopping, my life addiction.... ASOS.
