Hidden Gems to discover in TK Maxx

Every couple of weeks I always go to Tk Maxx to see what 'bargains'  I can discover, even though quite often the store is mostly a miss rather than a hit!

However sometimes you will be surprised at what you get there.....

The Kooples

I got these amazing shorts for £11 in the sale!

Look at them cute skulls ♡

Borderland Defender - Two years later

Finally two years after starting Borderlands...
I finally acheived the platinum trophy!
 The servers for Borderlands finally closed, I believe in May.....prompting me to finally get my ass in gear and finish the game!
I actually really enjoyed this game and could actually just grind for hours, as it was beneficial to do this.....that was until the game glitched on me as it saving and completely corrupted my save file, meaning I would have to start AGAIN!!!
I'm telling you it was very lucky this was a psn download rather than a physical disc, as I would of used the disc as a frisbee! haha.

Anyway after major gamer rage.....two years later, i returned to this wonderful game ensuring I backed it up with PS+ every single time I finished playing, and finally acheived the platinum trophy!
(As yes, I am one of these noobs who have PS+ who NEVER use the autosave feature)

Two years later.....but better late than never eh!
 So maybe now I can finally start on with Borderlands 2, considering 'Borderlands The Pre-sequel' is getting released in 3 months time!  So yep, this is my longest ever time to achieve a platinum due to gamer rage!
Whats your longest time taken to achieve a platinum?

Complications of Rosacea - Rosacea in eyes

Okay I want to talk about something that happened to me last year and at the time was not aware was a complication of rosacea!
Last year my right eye just went blurry, the only way to describe this blurriness is when you get that weird film over your eye and normally you rub it and it goes.  The only problem is when I rubbed my eye it didn't go!  Obviously this was felt very strange at first, so I though okay maybe it's just my glasses which has got dirt on the lenses.  So I repeatedly cleaned my glasses but to no avail....this scared me to death!
 So off I went to St Paul's eye hospital, but there was no doctor's in due to it being 10pm at night.  However, there was a nurse who looked at my eyes and advised me "come in tomorrow as I think you will just need some cream"
So the next day I waited for around 3 hours to be seen by a doctor, to only be told;
"I think you have Thygeson's Superficial Punctate Keratitis"

At that very moment I felt like my world fell apart as he told me; "You wont be able to drive anymore and there is not really any cures, but would look at possibly trying steroids.....which can sometimes make you worse" 
He then referred me to a cornea specialist.......
Over the next few days I experienced headaches and severely painful dry eyes, so was prescribed Hylo-Forte.....which is by far the most amazing invention ever if you suffer with dry eyes!
Within 1-2 months my appointment came through for my cornea specialist who examined my eyes and straight away said;
"I can see you have rosacea, which has caused blepharitis"
