hungry like a wolf

After a major wardrobe throw out in November, i seriously needed a revamp. Queue saving my wages and waiting for the sales, i now actually own most of Topshop. I'm really not kidding here. I finally went sale shopping today with Sarah, but tbh most stuff left is just naff; so i ended up picking a few non-sale bits in Topshop, as i had an exchange and a treasured giftcard from my birthday. I then came home to find two Topshop packages and the biggest Boots parcel everr. My dad was speechless, bless him.

Luckily i managed to bag all the sale buys online real early before work! 

Lace Jumper (was £35.00 now £18.00)

Feather Fan Blouse (was £38.00 now £16.20)

Chain Necklace Tee ( was £35.00 now £18.00)

Classic Waist Shift dress (was £45.00 now £18.00)

Drape Print Skirt (was £32.00 now £16.20)

Then i decided i would return this top, basically i love it, but i just couldn't work it and didn't feel comfortable. When i bought the top it was reduced by mistake to £18, and as i lost the receipt, the lovely girl in-store kindly let me exchange it up to the value it was scanning at.. £38.00. Score! I picked up the following blouses with student discount and a gift card, meaning i only paid £12!

Peter Pan Blouse (£38.00)

Silk Flower Blouse (£35.00)

I am seriously all shopped out. Phew. I'm still yet to receive a John Lewis order and i will save that and my Boots goodies for another post. I really wasn't kidding when i was a tad sale obsessed. With student discount stated in the prices, i saved a large amount of money though!

Did you find anything in the sales?

..has to be one of my all time favourite Christmas songs, mainly because it reminds me of Home Alone, which is basically the best Christmas film ever. My Christmas was slightly mad, i went to visit family in Worthing for the day, then the boy came down and we drove home and spent the evening together at home. Sadly i don't have any photos, as i completely fail at remembering. My family have just arrived home, so we will be having our normal Boxing day feast tonight, accompanied by Bedknobs and Broomsticks!

Here are a few presents i received from my lovely family and friends.

The boy bought me a very large (massive!) bottle of Chanel Chance, which is amazing because a) i could literally bath in it and b) he bought me tiny bottle for me when i was sixteen, so five years later i think i deserve the biggest ;) And a Clarin's lip gloss that smells like toffee, yum.

My lovely little brother gave me a Nars eyeshadow duo and a very, very cute bird hook for my room.

My lovely parents bought me the Mac mini brush sets, i'm blown away how good they are already. And those three tartan hideous cases are being hidden away somewhere, until i can find some use for them.

Audrey Hepburn is a big style influence on me, her classic and rather french style is exactly how i aspire to be. My lovely friend Sarah, who is actually amazing at giving gifts, gave me this book full of photos of her, and even includes a print which no doubt will be framed on the asap.

My lovely boy also bought me these, Linda La Plant is possible one if my favourite thriller authors. Mary Poppins is my all time favourite film, and Christmas really isn't Christmas without Bedknobs and Broomsticks! 

With my Christmas money i snapped up these Vivienne Westwood pumps from My Wardrobe for £35.00 steal! Much to the amusement of my boy's friend they smell of sweets too, how odd! 

I also received some money from my parents as my main present, which was lovely of them, but i really cannot decide when to spend it on! Paired with my birthday money, i could buy an Alexa (gigantic grin) but i'm so indecisive it's untrue. Currently on my wish list is a Mui Mui, but we will see. 

Whilst i didn't make it out shopping today, i have one large Boot's order, TWO Topshop orders and a sneaky John Lewis order to arrive! I somewhat managed to get onto all sales early in the morning before work on Christmas Eve, and snapped up all the best bits! 

Have you been sale shopping? The in-store Topshop one was pants! 

Through the wire.

Okay, i may have stooped to all time low - and may have to delete this post after you've had a good read. Please do not judge me on the following, it's simply here to help you. Cringe. 

This post came about after i tweeted about spying on the Topshop item's i wanted to buy in the sale, and Lucy asked how i knew what price's they were going to be reduced to. I work in retail, nothing flash, in-fact my main customers are old ladies - i have acquired several thousand adopted grandmothers during my time working there. Anyway, in the run up to sale, we identify the items that will be going down in the sale prior to it starting, so on the start date we can just gun and ticket. If your really sneaky, you can suss out what items are due to be reduced by looking on the back of the ticket. Not all stores do this mind you, but it's worth knowing. 

Each stores have different ways for writing a discreet code, but most of the time its pretty bloody obvious. Note, i bought this top from Topshop yet, i wrote the code on as an example: reduced to £20.

Have fun ;)

all we hear is radio gaga.

Demonstrating my two new loves:

Arran Cardigan - ASOS (free)
Mac Lipstick - Hue (£12.50)

I'm never normally that lucky, but i when i ordered this cardigan from ASOS it was during the heavy, heavy snow. Needless to say after fifty thousand frantic emails and automated replies (what's up with this? never heard of a dog and bone?) i harassed their facebook team. I received a speedy reply to find out it had been lost in transit, queue a refund back into my account and this little present on my door step that very morning.
