    I NEED to stop buying shoes so much! However, I've seen a pair I really like - and have done for ages - for £20. A similarish pair were on ASOS for £30 and a 1)% discount's on till 5th/6th... but I think I'll wait till they're IN THE sale and get the others for now

    I got a white summer scarf with silver threads for £2, New Look.

    A black plain T-shirt, £4, New Look.

    And, a plain white top with a round neck from HnM for £4.99.

    Rather boring, but I have no clothes that fit and although I never feel inspired with buy such things, I'm always wanting a basic top when getting dressed.

    Why should people who are living luxurious lifestyles get extra money? The people who tend to deserve EMA aka me don't have the luxuries like fancy holidays or parents helping them out with things. People forget that having better food, better housing and a better lifestyle is actually worth more than £30 a week.
    How on Earth do you know if someone who doesn't get EMA is living a life of luxury? That's one of the things that annoys me. People assume that if your parents earn enough for you not to get EMA then you must be eating Caviar on a private jet on your way to an exotic destination. Anyway I didn't say everyone should get EMA I just think that seeing as the bonus is an incentive everyone should be entitled to it not just kids from low income families.

    Owning your own house is a luxury which many people overlook. I didnt say that you eat caviar and yaddah yaddah if you don't get ema, I'm just saying alot of people who moan want to look at what they've got and realise what they have is worth more. I live on a council estate in a rented house, thats a lower quality of life to somebody living in a nice area in their own home.

    not trying to have a go but bit of a chip on your shoulder. you cant really comment on other peoples situations, eg their house might be inherited, purchased when the owner had a higher income/any employment at all, highly mortgaged etc. there are loads of possibilities so i think its wrong for you to say something like that. of course most people are unappreciatve but although its not a nice trait wanting more is natural to nearly everybody.

    i can see where youre coming from but things arent always what they appear. for example good friend of mines parents were divorced, he lives with his mum. anyway his parents sold the house off and was split 50/50 i think. so his mum owns a house, has a car etc but earns very little (about 12k a year) and only receives any money from her ex husband when he can be bothered to pay - she really struggles to keep the lights on.
