Before I start I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who's been commenting me & my new followers - I know I've been really rubbish recently, with commenting back & stuff, but I do really appreciate it all!
Ok, so my spending has kinda got out of control recently it seems.. but at least that means I've got lots to show you!
These are just another few things I've bought recently - I've not got pics of the rest yet. In a week's time, I've got the house entirely to myself, for a whole week - so I'll probably take that opportunity to take more pics for my blog. In fact, I could even use that time to set my blog shop up too.. hmm, that's an idea.. Right, we'll see. But for now, back to it!
More sale purchases:
Saw this pretty floral & crochet smock top in the Topshop sale the other week for £15. Liked it, but managed to resist it - glad I did, because I then saw it again this weekend - £7! So for that price, it had to be mine!
I'm actually really not convinced that it suits me at all. But I've decided, I don't really care & will probably keep it anyway!
I also bought this in Topshop:
It's really cute :)
Ok, I'll stick with dresses for the minute. I've picked these couple up, reduced in Primark:
Both things I'd liked full price but had managed to resist, so obviously had to snap up now they're in the sale!
I also bought one of the Primark jersey tshirt maxi dresses - a grey one. Haven't got a decent pic of it, so I'm not showing you. But it's really really nice! I've worn it a couple of times already & I'm loving it rather a lot.
Picked this top up in H&M:
for the bargain price of £2.99 - that's not even in the sale! Love this top, it's really light & flowy so would be great as a 'holiday' top, but I also wore it the other day to work - belted, black trousers, cardi etc & it worked that way too - very versatile & at that price, how could you resist!?
After my last post, asos released that 10% discount code, so I had to go back & have a little look.. honestly, I'm so naughty!
There were a few bits that caught my eye, that had gone further down in the sale, so plus the discount = must-have purchases!
Both of these are actually MUCH nicer in real life :)
I also got a couple of other things; a top & a necklace. But can't find either of them on the site now, so I'm assuming they've sold out - so no pics of those! The necklace actually arrived broken anyway - so I really wasn't impressed. But, I emailed asos this evening, & they got back to me REALLY quickly. Not just with an automated reply, but a real response - telling me a replacement item is on its way & also a discount code for my inconvenience. So.. although it's not ideal to receive faulty items from a company, I'm really impressed with how they've dealt with it. Just so you all know!
The last thing I'm going to show you isn't new, but I've rediscovered it recently! Had it a while, & used to wear it a lot, but then put it away & kinda forgot about it. But as I said, I've rediscovered it, so it's made a couple of appearances recently:
Silly really isn't it, all this new jewellery I've bought recently, & so I dig my old stuff out!
Ok, so I might as well mention.. I'm kinda going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment. I'd just thought I'd come out the other side of the last one, but turns out I hadn't quite.. I promise I'll not abandon my blog again & when I'm off work I'll actually try posting a bit more often.
Speaking of being off work: I have one day left, then 5 weeks off! The perks of spending my every working hour dealing with hormonal teens & all their dramas ;)
I'm actually feeling really conflicted about the holidays.. Which sounds so ridiculous, but let me try & explain.. Bit of insight into the crazy workings of my not quite right mind.. I'm really tired & really in need of a break, so am looking forward to having some time off - I'm really really looking forward to NOT hearing the alarm clock on Monday morning! BUT, I actually think work is the best place for me when I'm feeling like this. The routine, the structure of the school setting, really suits me. Work gives me something to focus on & in the most basic sense, gives me a reason to get up in the mornings.
Also, my main support network at the moment, is through my work colleagues. So, the thought of not being there for the next 5 weeks, is worrying me a bit.
It's a bit of a double-edged sword as well really, because THEN, come September 1st - I'm not going to want to go back! It'll be really hard to readjust back into it.
Believe me, I'm not complaining about the time off - I realise I'm very lucky to get such good holidays & most people would kill for holidays like mine. & normally, when I'm 'better', it wouldn't be a problem at all - it'd all be great. It's just because of how I am at the moment.. that this is all the stuff going on in my head.
In fact, I'm thinking it's definitely best to leave it there! Rather tempted to just delete that whole last paragraph.. It probably doesn't even make sense.. Ah well, told you I was feeling conflicted!
