I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RUG SHOPPING...



Dress - £30 UO (reduced from £65)
Playsuit - £18 (reduced from £38)
Playsuit - Asos
Jacket - H&M
Shoe boots - Primark.
Belt - Vintage from UO
Watch - Timex.
Bracelets - Accessorize/Ebay
Rings - Camden Market/Topshop (old).

So I went to the shops with the intention of finding a rug for my new uni room (I hate this blue one). I decided looking through the Urban Outfitters sale while I was there was harmless, I then found some things I liked so tried them on in the hope I'd hate them. I didn't. So unfortunately I came home from rug shopping without a rug but with 43 (with discount) pounds worth of clothes. Woops! I promised myself I'd take one back but I just can't decide - I love them both!:(

Also thought I'd throw in last nights outfit, I wore my Primark boots from this post.

NEW PURCHASES




Boots - £20 Primark
Crop top - £7 Asos
Disco Pants - Asos £30(?)

I've been spending lately, woops. Not a lot though, I think these are all quite good bargains anyway. I've wanted some shoe boots for ages because the only heels I really have that I wear are my flatforms and I sometimes think they're a bit innapropriate and don't go with everything (I still love them though!). As for the crop top I got it to go with a skirt which I've had for a while but haven't really thought of anything else to wear it with yet. And the disco pants! I've only posted a photo of the bum because I've just done this post featuring them, but I neglected to include a photo of the back. As I said in the other post, I like the pockets on these and I like that they're a bit less shiny than the originals.

OOTD: DISCO PANT DUPES





 Top - Topshop (old)
Disco pants - Asos
Jacket - American Eagle
Necklaces - Miss Selfridge
Watch - Timex
Shoes - Topshop
I've been quite busy lately, Ive been packing my stuff to move back to uni, working and have also been to watch the Great North Run! I'm finally all moved in to my new house though - it is so strange being back and in 2nd year... I still feel like a fresher!
I bought these disco pant dupes from Asos a week or so ago, I'm not too familiar with the real disco pants - I have briefly seen my cousins but that's it. However I think these dupes are definitely less shiny than the originals but I don't mind this because I feel more comfortable wearing them during the day. So if you want to wear them as casual daywear I'd reccomend these, the design seems quite similar to the originals, the pockets on the back are bigger than on the topshop ones and in my opinion look better for it!
I apologise for the blurry photo's, either my hand is shaky or my camera is pretty crap, I suspect a bit of both. 
p.s. can you see my slightly ombre hair?! I wanted it subtle but I think it may be too subtle...

WINTER JACKET: LEATHER SLEEVES VS ARMY CAMOUFLAGE

1st Jacket - £75, Topshop.
2nd Jacket - £65 Topshop.

I want one of these as a new winter jacket, however, I can't for the life of me decide between them. I haven't seen many people wear either out and about so don't know what looks best/goes with the most. I was worried the first one might be too full on because of it's pattern, but then again it has a detatchable fur lining which could be very useful for a cold winter! I love leather so obviously like the second one too! Argh! Help!

TRIP TO YORK!













Here are a few photo's from my trip to York. As I mentioned in the previous post I took my boyfriend for a couple of days as a 21st present. I was so concerned it was going to be rainy and cold but as you can see the weather was lovely - so warm and sunny! We stayed in a Premier Inn right in the centre. I would definitely reccommend Premier Inns because you always know what to expect and they are very good value! Most of the time we were eating and drinking at places like Bella Italia, Lucia's, The Cornish Pasty Company and York Hog Roast (all really nice!) . We also went on the wheel which was interesting, I'd reccomend going on it once for the experience but don't think I'd bother again! Although it was only £5.50 for a student. We also went to York Dungeons which were really scary in my opinion, I was on edge at all times but especially when my boyfriend volunteered me to be tortured! So embarrassing.
Overall this wasn't an expensive trip and we had a really good time!

OOTN: A NIGHT OUT IN YARM

Skirt - Vintage
Top - Asos
Rings - Topshop, Camden market.
Shoes - Urban Outfitters
Necklaces - Miss Selfridge
Bracelet - Ebay
Watch - Timex
Thread bracelet - Festival

Sorry about my lack of recent posts I have been in York for a few days to celebrate my boyfriends 21st. It was so nice and I shall have a post on it coming up! Anyway, this is what I wore for a night out with my friends, I have had this skirt for years, and have just dug it out the bottom of a draw, I still really like it! I have a few new, unworn dresses but for some reason decided on this outfit! The skull bangle is the one I posted about a while ago in this wish list, I saw the Topshop version and loved it but found this £1.60 bargain on ebay! It isn't as adjustable as the Topshop one but I've saved £6 so not too bothered. Hope you've all had a great week!

I don't spend that much when it comes to makeup, in fact I try to be as cheap as possible unless it is a gift, which the foundation, primer, lipstick and eyeshadow were. When people ask me what I want for my birthday/Christmas I will do some research on some cult beauty products and ask for these. When I am buying for myself I don't splash out too much, I don't know if there is that much difference between cheap and expensive products? But I always take the risk with cheap so I can buy more clothes! Let me know your opinion on expensive vs cheap beauty products and what your favourites are!x
