Blood – Do You Donate?

CGp5eHnUAAE6_l9.png-large

So this week is National Blood Week here in the UK, which aims to increase awareness about blood donation and encourage new sign-ups and people who haven’t donated in a while to do so again. I have donated in both England and Wales, although haven’t donated for over a year. It’s something I kept meaning to do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find an appointment that I can get to.

Primark Haul

This weekend, I was indeed of one thing from Lush so walked into town to grab it. Two hours of wondering around later, I came back with a bit more than I had initially intended… Always seems to go that way!

Birmingham Haul!

Birm Haul

On Tuesday, my godmother, mum and I went on a shopping trip to the Bull Ring in Birmingham. We’d been planning the trip for a month or so, but as I’m moving I didn’t have quite as much money as I’d have liked. But that didn’t stop me from getting spendy!

My New Look Wish List

NL Wish list

Despite having done a fairly significant haul in New Look last month, I have still managed to compile a list of 10 items I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on! I just can’t help but love New Look as they’re such good quality and affordable clothes.  Continue reading

Clothing Haul! ft. New Look, H&M & Dorothy Perkins

clothing haul

Before we get on to what I bought, I’d like to share a couple of pieces of important news with you all. First of all, I have been offered a new job! I’ve got a temporary contract an hour’s drive from me, where I’ll finally be able to start my career as a graphic designer! I am of course very very pleased and although I don’t start til March thanks to a long notice period and a pre-booked holiday, some of the things I bought were with office/studio dress code in mind. The second thing is that my beloved macbook is heading off to Apple for a couple of days for some repairs! (thankfully just within the extended warranty period I took out when I bought it!) Although I have access to another mac, this may affect my ability to keep up with the blog, so I just thought I’d let you all know, as I have otherwise been very good at keeping up with my posting schedule this month. That’s also the main reason why today’s post is a day late – after a hectic day, I finally finished writing this up at 11pm!

The Khaki Edit

Khaki

Now that the New Year has come around, some of the shops have mixed up their lines. With that has come a resurgence of one of my all time favourite colours – khaki. There’s something about this beautiful deep, army green that I just love. And thankfully, it really suits my pale skin and red hair. Here’s a selection of pieces which have caught my eye lately.

Black Friday Mini Haul

A slightly belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers! I hope you all had a great holiday. I may be in the UK, but in recent years Black Friday has become a shopping event over here too thanks to American owned retailers like Asda. I personally don’t see why people want to go and (literally) fight over TVs, etc in the supermarkets, but I did pick up a few bits in some of the online sales.

10 Christmas Gifts Under £10

Gift List

We all know that Christmas can be an expensive time of year. I personally have 12 people to buy for as well as several friends and family members’ birthdays in the surrounding months. Budgeting is therefore very important and trying to find a great gift on a budget can be really difficult. So I have put together this little list of some cool gift ideas I have found for £10 or less. I hope you’ll forgive the 25p over spend on the last item!
