In the mood for some fantasy shopping! I would usually go for a bag, but nothing is catching my eye at the moment.

No benches thank you very much grin

I did see a Shourouk necklace earlier but I fear 'statement necklaces' may be on the wane, they have been around for a few years now

Full sleeve tattoo grin

Custom made shoes. I'm living in trainers and walking shoes, at the moment, because I can't find anything else I like that fits my wide, sore, collapsed feet and I've ordered DH to shoot me if I ever go down the beige old lady leather route.

Whatever makes you happy Honey! I'm too much of a wuss though, too much pain

I'm with HoneyDragon on the tattooing but a sleeve for that sort of cash wouldn't be up to much, I fear. So, I'll just have 5 or 6 hours of tattooing (and the accompanying design and drawing time) with my normal artist. Thanks Darling!

Oh you deserve it Mrs Lettuce grin

Ooh, handmade shoes sound v luxurious indeed!

I wanna playI would get these and this this ,and look you have some change left! grin

Maybe one of those lumea (?) hair removal things. Too expensive to even consider outside of fantasy shopping unfortunately.

AnnabelleDarling Wed 25-Jun-14 20:22:17

Very efficient use of resources Tess and Santa.

I love the Givenchy heels but fear I would suffer from vertigo in them grin

Oh I'd love that J Crew dress, too, and also some heels.

Like these - quite acidic in real life. Beautiful

I would put £200 in the bank for emergencies (white goods etc) and spend the rest on clothes for DH, DC and myself. I'd get a few pairs of boots for different occasions. That's it really.

ouyvre and annabelle google "Conker Shoes Totnes". They may or may not be your style, but they are handmade shoes and they do a custom, bespoke service.

I would go for a professional make up consultation and kit myself out with all the top quality products

RhondaJean Thu 26-Jun-14 08:20:45

I think I would go for a course of microdermabrasion treatments. Am I allowed to spend the rest on personal training or does that not count.

If I could afford to train with my trainer five days a week for a couple of weeks I would be dead fit.

I would go for:

A bespoke facial (the spa at Harvey Nicks does a good one)

A little bit of laser treatment on a couple of freckles on my face that really annoy me

A couple of really good serums (like the Skinceuticals ones that I can only ever afford to buy sample sizes of)

Actually, that lot has probably well exceeded the £500 ... I will sacrifice the laser treatment and if there is any change out of the £500 I'd have a really good hair colour with a few very expertly done and tasteful lowlights.

I think I'd blow the lot on matching underwear. I've lost my way with underwear a bit due to 2 x pregnancies and breastfeeding.

Loads of decent, brightly coloured bras and knickers for everyday.
