The last 5 things I bought; Glaswegian Helen Marnie is the lead singer of Ladytron but is about to release her second solo album.
1 SAINSBURY'S CHOCOLATE PEANUTS I have eaten a bag of these every night this week. I may be addicted. It's kind of an experiment to see if chocolate and peanuts are good for you.
2 DOG TOOTHPASTE My wee Romanian rescue dog had a vet visit the other day and I was advised to start brushing her teeth. So I bought this online from Vet-Medic. Not convinced it's gonna work out, but I'm willing to try.
3 MALACHITE SHIELD PENDANT I wish this was for me but it's for a special friend who has been through a lot lately and who is turning 40. I bought it online from Missoma.com. I liked that Malachite is an evil eye and protector.
4 SM58 SHARE MICROPHONE I bought this online from Gear4Music. I was sick of showing up for gigs and being subjected to the stinkiest mics, so I bought my own. No one else's lips are getting near it.
5 GESTUZ TARTAN TROUSERS ASOS is my go-to for clothes as they delivery so damn quickly. There's nothing wrong with a bit of tartan here and there, especially if you're going to a wedding abroad and want to fly the flag.
The second solo album from Ladytron's Marnie, called Strange Words And Weird Wars, will be available in shops on CD and LP by Disco Pinata on Friday.
