ASOS Treats

Whenever ASOS and Unidays collaborate to give us overworked and underpaid students 25% off, I cannot resist.
I might have slightly blew the budget this time...but I love all my new pieces. All prices below are shown before discount added as the discount is no longer available, sorry folks!

Motel Penny Smock Dress - £45, a pricey item for sure but I was excited to get a lusted piece by Motel for cheaper than usual and not to mention it ticks three of this Spring/Summer's trends: monochrome, stripes and smock shape! Perfection!
3 Row Twist Necklace - £8, wouldn't usually justify paying so much for costume jewellery but it's such a statement piece that I will wear again and again, day and night. 
Barry M High Shine Gel Finish Nail Polish in Prickly Pear -  £3.99, a bit of a random purchase I know but with the 25% discount and the fact I have been wanting this shade for a while I thought 'why the hell not?'
Tutu Leather Peep Toe Shoe Boot - I did not receive the student discount with these babies as they were already on sale for £27.50 down from £50...cannot complain! 
So did you guys pick up any sneaky purchases to cheer you up with the workload that's already piling up despite only being a couple weeks into the semester?

I have gone a bit crazy on the shopping front recently - definitely on a spending ban from now on...which is proving very hard since ASOS now have 70% sale on lots of more items!

New Year Purchases

Well it's been quite a while since I've blogged and I feel terrible for neglecting my blog but I've been so busy with exams and know how it is!
However my New Years resolution is to blog more often and hopefully this year I'll stick to it, especially since I've got some lovely new pieces in my wardrobe at Christmas and in the sales that I cannot wait to show them off in OOTD's.
Here are the first few things I brought this year:

Topshop Grey Speckle Roll Neck Jumper - I wanted this when it first got reduced to £12, but I'm so glad I waited as I got this super cosy jumper for just £6.30 (£7 with no student discount)
I was quite unsure on this Primark cut out blouse as it was a size 12 but the cut out collar detail, the fact that it's monochrome (a big trend for 2013 I hear?) and that it was only £5 down from £10 sure did persuade me! 

I picked up these fairly bright blue wash Lee vintage shorts in the amazing YMCA charity shop in Harlow. They have tons of denim shorts/cut offs for crazy low prices compared to elsewhere! They only cost me £5.98 , not even on sale, which is a bargain as places in Edinburgh/London charge over £20 for vintage shorts. 
Finally I got a Coconut Body Shop Body Butter as I received a £3 Giftcard with a magazine and  as I need a body lotion, got this 50ml £5 tub for £2 :)
The Topman silver tooth chain necklace was an impulse buy whilst browsing Topman, was half price and with student discount only cost £1.89, not bad eh?! 

I would like to believe I won't go shopping again for a while, but I know as soon as I get my student loan I'll be running to Princes Street hehe! Got my eye on quite a few things, a New Year Wish List will get posted very soon if you are interested....
Hope you had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying the New Year!
