You haven’t lived if … you haven’t been to a Costco!

I didn't plan to write this. It's all Stuart's fault. Please excuse the silliness of this post, this is not about makeup, it’s a just a little bit of fun.

I hate the idea of missing out of potential good stuff. I had heard briefly about Costco in the past. I knew it was a paradise shop but that’s about it really.


And then, sir Stuart Heritage, some ginger? hilarious bloke who writes for the Guardian tweeted this and I became all jealous and wanted to know more.


But when I asked on twitter:
What is Cotsco?
is it a posh shop down south?
what does it sell? xx

I really wasn't ready for the overwhelming wave of love you had for this shop and I really didn't expect so many would answer in mass. I could have googled it but being lazy nothing beats the feedback from real people, innit?

Here's what Costco is all about and what you are missing out on:


Thank you everyone :)
I am so jealous, and I want to go now. Please can I go with you next time? I want to stuff my face with birthday cakes and giant steaks.

Costco is amazing - love going there with my parents. They always have loads of free samples of food to try which is pretty fun. x

I just found out there's one near my house... seriously gonna go there now! Love the washing powder and loo roll (let's face it, you gotta buy that stuff and cheap/less frequently is better than constantly/pricily).

Ahaha, it is like wonderland. My Dad always stocks up on the essentials (meat and beer) when he goes. And the 'Welcome to Costco, I love you.' is from an awesome film - Idiocracy.
