I'm having Penneys withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms include no matching footies and ratchet pjs... And I can't be the only one!
Okay, so in the grand scheme of things this is quite trivial. In saying that, I think we are all feeling the effects of this cornerstone of Irish society being closed right now. Trust me, my poor sock drawer is definitely suffering. So let's take a moment to reminisce. Here are a few things that we are missing right now...
An essential pick up. Even if you only go in for 'just one thing' they always end up in the basket - that clever at-till placement
The simple pleasures of a new packet of little sports footies (that match)
A Friday night staple tbh
Sometimes a gal just wants a plain white tee / string top, and I swear by the Penneys ones
Andrew Fitzsimons' hair range
I've run out of the texture spray and the dry shampoo. I can't go back to using any other brand - nothing else comes close. It also brings me closer to being a Kardashian / Keoghdashian
Whatever you want to call them, they always disappear and right now I'm working off one skinny, one thick and a questionable scrunchie.
In the same vein as above
Missing the reasonably priced random pickups like hair turban towels and jade rollers
In your late twenties, there's honestly nothing like a brand new pair of jammies and a glass of wine. I just want to upgrade to my summer shortie set right about now.
Can we get an amen for the €1 rolled thong?
Should have bought that bloody bar-cart.
Okay, so we aren't exactly going anywhere exotic at the moment. But the weather has been amazing recently and a little strapless number would be ideal for back garden tanning
Always nice to spice of the activewear wardrobe with a bit of colour, I like to accessorise my more pricey kit with a cool sports bra or top from Penneys. At the moment I'm looking very gothic.
So I may be slightly biased - in a previous life I did work in Penneys HQ but alas my love affair with Penneys/Primark continues. That and the fact that my basic b*tch needs are non-stop.
