Haul | Burgundy and Black

River Island skirt £16 | beanie £12
Topshop top £16 | sleeveless tee £12

Again, some items I got before Christmas. I was really into burgundy and oxblood back then and I still am. I think the Topshop lace top is still available and possibly the River Island skirt too. Also, the beanie was from the men's section as I find them so much cooler compared to the women's ones. I don't know, what do you think?

But yea, it's insane that I still have so many clothes I haven't worn yet from the last three months and they're literally all sitting inside paper bags in front of my bed. I would have sorted them out and put them away a long time ago if it weren't for my very limited amount of storage space here at uni. Gaahhh, the frustration! I cannot wait to get my own place and do it up the way I want to. Hahaha! Anyone else feel the same? x

Haul | Knitted Jumpers, A Leather Jacket and Flatforms

New Look studded jumper  £27.99 | zipped-back jumper £17.99 | pink and black knitted jumpers £19.99 each |
jacket £39.99 | shoes £24.99

These are a few items I got way back in November last year but I thought I'd still share them with you guys. And by doing so, I also get to sort out my 'corner of clutter' — that is my dump of new items I'm too lazy to put away and have nowhere to store (boo for student houses). They are all from New Look, which is surprisingly doing very well at the moment in terms of stocking affordable clothes that are very on trend. I got a few (too many) jumpers, some of which I've already worn and love. I also got my go-to jacket as of late and a pair of simple black flatforms. I didn't want to invest on actual creepers just in case I didn't like or get wear out of them. I quite like these ones though, they're simple and I can see them going with a lot of outfits. But yea, there's probably going to be a few posts like this on my blog until I'm able to put everything away. Not to worry though as I've now officially put myself on a spending ban until after Easter. Hahaha! Let's see if it holds! Wish me luck! x

What I Wore | Trip to Birmingham

 (hat - Topshop, scarf - Urban Outfitters, dress and tights - Primark, shoes - Converse, jacket - New Look, bag - Ebay)

Last Saturday, my sister, boyfriend and I all travelled down to Birmingham as a late birthday treat for my 20th. I wore this striped midi dress from Primark and chucked on some cosy tights along with my trustee Converse because I knew I was gonna be walking all day. I also wore my Topshop hat and Urban Outfitters scarf which doubled up to keep me warm and accessorise the look! Lastly, my (very over-worn) pleather jacket from New Look and new duffel bag from Ebay, which is a slight dupe to the ones by Alexander Wang. It was my first time being there and  I had loads of fun! We shopped like there was no tomorrow, ate loads of good food and simply enjoyed being in an unfamiliar place. Hee! How did your weekends go, anything exciting? x

Haul | Black Denim, Leather and Spikes

 Internacionale skirt £14.99 | shorts £7 (sale)
I got these two items a while back from Internacionale and thought I'd share them with you guys! The wet look/leather-like skater skirt cost me £14.99 which is really good for what it is. Although, I have yet to wear it, (once I've organised my entire wardrobe). The spiked shorts on the other hand, were on sale for only £7! Bargain, right? Plus they look really cool with sheer tights on. What do you think? x

Haul | What I Got for Christmas

Another later post, I know! But I have a life outside the world wide web too. Aha! Anyway, here goes:

Chocolates, because who doesn't love them?
 Comfy slippers. No one shall see me walk barefoot or in my socks ever again!
 A scarf, pairs of socks and an owl hottie because you can never have enough things to keep you warm especially with the UK's very unpredictable weather. Oh, and a nice black and white butterfly print crop top from H&M.
 Various coloured knitted beanies, 'cause I apparently don't have enough. And the cutest existing fox hat ever! Thanks Mom! 
Loads of crafty stuff from my Mom including a Paris calendar, Little Red Riding Hood tea cup, small DIY card tray, a notepad and one awesome photography book!
Babyliss Wave Envy and a nice jewelry box.
Makeup bits, yey! Urban Decay Naked Palette, Stila 'In The Light' Palette, a bear pocket mirror, Topshop and Look lipsticks and lastly, a bunch of Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks! Ahh, so exciting!
Box of goodies from my sister that included all of these awesome nail polishes from Models Own and Barry M. I won't need to buy any polishes for a very long time!

So yea, these are most of the things I got for Christmas. Please note that by no means am I bragging, I just wanted to share it with you guys. Okay? Consider it a grand haul of some sort. Besides, I like nosying at what people get so why not make a post of my own? Hee! Hope you're all having a great weekend! x
