New Look Jewellery Haul (and a Merry Christmas to all!)


Today I popped into town to have lunch with Chris and exchange Christmas presents. We have a tradition every year that we buy each other a CD. My extensive music collection is mostly due to him introducing me to new bands and it has gotten to the point where I have more music than my phone can hold so I am having to make sure I only upload music that I listen to (goodbye old NOW albums!). This year I bought him Katy Perry's new album and he got me Jake Bugg's new album and now I am happy that I can finally put the album on my phone!

Anyway, I popped into New Look after lunch and ended up spending £14 on jewellery in New Look. Yes, FOURTEEN POUNDS and I got three pairs of earrings, three necklaces and a ring for £14. Crazy huh? I could have bought much more but I decided to to stop myself. That money was already put aside to pick myself up some Philosophy shower gel but who wants to smell like a honey bun past February (well, I would but I'm trying to make myself feel better!)

Instagram Update #11

New boots / As you want Victoria / An end to semester 1 / Leadenhall Market / Christmas tree / a night out with the girls

Like cats? A couple of gifts for cat lovers

It is both fortunate and very unfortunate that my birthday is in November. First, it means that everyone tends to be free and can go out with me to celebrate. Second, I usually get enough books to last me until Christmas when I will get even more books to read to get me through to the start of Semester 2. However, I can never have a birthday barbecue and I always tend to have tests around, if not on, my birthday.

Anyway, moaning about the timing of my birthday aside, I didn't get any books for my birthday but a few cat related gifts from some of my friends. This year a couple of them really went the extra mile with getting more quirky and unique gifts that no-one else would even think about buying, let alone find! They are so lovely and I thought they deserved to be shown on my blog because they are so lovely and quirky and I love them!

Review // Lush Amandopondo bubble bar

This is the first Lush product I have ever tried. One of my friends depends on their products and I luckily got given this bubble bar by my lovely friend Ellen for my birthday. As soon as I got it I couldn't wait to get home and have a bath and it was definitely worth the wait!

OOTD // I love London at Christmas

Hello! Today I spontaneously popped into London with my friend Chris. Every year we go to London around Christmas time and realised that we hadn't yet been this year. Well today but a stop to that. Sure, it wasn't as exciting as last year (where we went to see pointless filmed and I was wearing a Christmas jumper and was asked to take it off and Alexander Armstrong compared me to a Chilean miner and I got a bigger clap than him when I walked on set) but it was still a lovely day!

Wishlist // 13/12/13

Hello there!
I cannot believe how long it has been since I have posted. If I am honest I have had such a hectic last month at university. After 8 lab reports, 5 course tests, 1 piece of quantum mechanics coursework, one essay on antibiotics, one Norwich Fringe show, one trip to Thorpe Park, Halloween, my birthday, three gigs and a couple of trips home I have finally home for Christmas!

I do have some big news - next year I will be studying at The University of British Columbia! Yes, I know! I can't believe it! It is all dependent on my grades, of course, but I am going to work so hard to get there. A year studying in Canada at a university which is in the top 30 in the world? How could I say no!

Anyway, I'm going to start my next 4 weeks of blogging heaven with a wish list!
