I haven't really been feeling up to doing blogging, or anything, for a few days, because of a bad cold. Meh. Sniff sniff coff coff. But I wanted to share some bargains with you, starting with some shoes. I got these from Evans - their shoes are amazing! And so was their sale. I used my last bit of money in there even though I only went in for some tights, oops! Luckily I got paid early not long after, phew, saved from the evil bank charges.
Firstly there are these, slightly Gaga-esque boots:
Cute no? £15 down from £35.
Then there are these boots. They're amazing (excuse the rubbish pics coming up):
£90 down to £20! Bargain! They look a lot nicer in real life, and are really comfy. I even wore them shopping (I never wear any sort of heels to shop) and even though I was glad to swop them for bowling shoes a few hours later they were fine really.
Next, t-shirt and jacket from H&M, £3 and £5 respectively. The jacket has a rip in the back but I'm hoping to fix it with my new sewing machine...
They don't go well together, but are very cute seperately.
A £3 scarf from Evans:
And lastly, 3 skirts from Dorothy Perkins, one was £35 and two were £25, for THREE POUNDS EACH! Pics to be added of those soon because I forgot to take them, silly me. [Edit - Skirt pics added, sorry they're not great]
My New Years resolution is not to buy so many clothes though (all this was from last year!). I am doing well with buying mostly charity shop stuff, but I just can't resist a bargain, and although the above stuff are things I did need (obviously in the style sense, not like I only need clothes rather than air and water to survive), I buy things just because they're a bargain not because I need them. Last year I did well with almost completely weaning myself off Primark, so hopefully I'll be even better this year.
My other resolutions are: to lose weight - I started a second month of bootcamp this week, it's evil, especially as I did it in the rain for the first time and ended up shivering on the bus on the way to work for 45 minutes, but I can feel and see it working.
And to learn to sew. I set up my sewing machine yesterday, it was suprisingly tricky, because the instructions assume you know what the parts they talk about are, which I don't as I'm a complete beginner. It might also have been hard because of my cold making me very stoopid, anyway I decided to leave the actual sewing till I feel better so I don't end up breaking it or sewing my hands together!
Oh and I read all five Emily Barr books over the holidays and she's a fantastic author. I'm going to do reviews of them in my book section soon.
EDIT: You can read the book reviews here.
