look what i bought #001

RIVER ISLAND leopard print collarless blazer £50 £30; ASOS mirrored skull t-shirt £18; TOPSHOP premium sequin tee £50 £15, pink peplum pencil skirt £34 £15, triangle disk earrings £8.50 £1.50 + lips in secret admirer £8; BOOTS real techniques lash + brow groomer £6.99 + l'oreal telescopic mascara in carbon black £10.99; NEWLOOK strappy block heels £24.99; AMAZON the september issue (used) £1.27, the night circus by erin morgenstern £3.86 + the time traveler's wife by audrey niffenegger (used) £1.79.

Just a few bits + bobs that I have purchased over the past couple of weeks! I've been super stressed in uni' so retail therapy has been my very close friend! I'm quite fortunate that my time of need has coincided with the mid-season sales, resulting in me finding a bargain or two!

I am in love with this River Island blazer! It's the only thing I picked up in the RI sale which is very, very, very surprising of me! Even though it looks lovely on, I may have to return it as I cannot find one thing in my wardrobe to wear it with! Boooo. I'm so glad I ordered the skull print tee off ASOS, it nice and easy to throw on to wear to uni' with out being too plain. Ooh how gorgeous is the sequin tee?! It's a box crop shape so I'm having a nightmare trying to find something suitable to wear it with but at such a bargain price I think I'll have to keep it no matter what! I'm turning into such a girl, I looove the Barbie pink colour of this skirt!

You might notice a bit of a DIY job with the earrings! The description said white however when they arrived the triangle stones were yellow! With the policy being that earrings are non returnable; a lick of pearly white nail varnish later + they are back to being a super bargain! I also repurchased my favourite Secret Admirer lipstick (review here). I had a controlled splurge in Boots where I picked up some foundation, my current favourite mascara + got a Real Techniques brush free to add to my collection, got to love 3 for 2!

I bought these heels to wear on my weekend away to Newcastle + I've worn them out every time since! I absolutely love them; I think they look more Zara than Newlook, they're different to all the super high super skinny heels out there at the moment, they're super comfy + a total steal at £25! What's not to love?!

Finally, I'm totally addicted to Amazon at the moment! I love that you can buy used DVD's + books that are like new at a total bargain price. I've bought a pile of DVD's over the past couple of months for around £1.30 a pop, so cheap! I'm having trouble sleeping at the moment so I've also stocked up on some chick-lit to hopefully help me unwind; any suggestions for other good reads would be appreciated(:
