New ASOS purchases..

Hello everyone!
Happy December! I don't let myself feel Christmassy until the start of this month, because I think it spoils it a bit if it's so drawn out. But let me tell you I am definitely feeling festive now, after starting a little bit of present shopping, seeing the Christmas lights and having a gingerbread latte. (The only thing missing was opening the first door on my advent calender! I definitely don't think 23 is too old for this, and may just have to buy my own as my parents have obviously forgotten this year!)

Anyway I just thought I'd quickly show you two items that I purchased from Asos a couple of days ago. I've been wanting a new purse for ages and had seen a couple that I liked. But when I saw that this one had been reduced from £17 to £11.50 I snapped it up. It has lots of different card compartments which is really good for me as I seem to have accumulated so many cards recently, and always find myself fumbling through my purse trying to find the right one. I think it's sold out on Asos now but you can still find it on the River Island website here.

I also bought this Kath Kidston purse, which I'm going to use to put make-up items in (lipsticks, nail file, hand cream etc) and then pop in my bag, which will hopefully keep things a bit tidier.

I'm hoping to go to a little country house tomorrow, where they do a real 'Victorian Christmas'. There's always a massive fire, people dress up in traditional costume, sing carols and you can make little Christmas decorations like pomanders. I missed going last year, so I'm really looking forward to it this year. I'll try and take some pictures for you all.

What are you doing this weekend? Anything Christmassy?

Summer Sales!

Hello Ladies!
Now if you live in the UK you'll know that these past couples of months have not been great weather-wise! But every (grey) cloud has a silver lining, and there are some amazing Summer sales going on on the High Street at the moment. I just thought I'd show you a couple of things that I picked up yesterday.

The first place I went to was River Island, which is definitely one of my favourite High Street stores. Their sale was crazy! Right next to the front door there were two rails of clothes all priced at £2, £3 and £4, I kept checking the items I picked up thinking I was going to find some marks or a hole but they were spotless. I limited myself to two items due to my wardrobe possibly exploding anytime soon. This is what I chose..

I picked up this white shirt for the bargain price of £4! I really love the brooch/necklace detailing, and I think I'll get lots of wear out of it and you can dress it both up and down.

I also found this collared dress for £3, reduced from £22! I just really love this dusty pink colour at the moment. You can see it styled in an OOTD here.
And lastly I saw these on the little NYX counter, 50p each! Omg I could not say no! They're sheer lipbalms, although the red one has quite a lot of colour and taste just like berries.

If you didn't get a chance to go to River Island, there are still many items available on their website in the sale, and lots for £5!

I also nipped into H&M, and being majorly influenced by the nice weather and ridiculous prices, succumbed to buying some shorts and a playsuit..ooopps!! I'll just have to cross my fingers that this sunny weather continues! Both were £3 each.

Now not very exciting but I'll show you anyway, I got some socks from New Look for £1 each, after all we all need socks!

And lastly I picked up Primark's very own version of the 'Tangle Teezer!' Unfortunately I don't have the original so I can't do a comparison. Although I'm liking it so far and it's definitely making my long hair easier to brush through, and at £1.50 you can't really complain!
