I absolutely love everything i've bought recently, especially the H&M shirt, and it's definitely safe to say i've got a slight obsession with shopping. It makes me so happy, so i don't plan on stopping though. Keeping the writing short and sweet today, so Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you've had plenty of trick-or-treaters, we didn't so i'm now sat eating all the sweets, such a shame!

Halloween 2011:

I don't tend to post many photo's of my social/personal life on here, but heck there's a first for everything, and seeing as though i have no actual photo's of my costume i may as well start now! The first 6 photo's are from a party i went to last friday, and it was with all of tom's (the boyf, eg. the one in the black afro/the chav in the bottom photo) friends (and their gf's) rather than mine, so i'm still to introduce you to my lovely bunch of friends. But yeah, a night full of awful drunk photo's, believe it or not, these are the best of them. 
Then the bottom photo is of me tom and his cousin at a family party of his last night. The costumes there were honestly amazing, everything from voldermort to the ghostbusters! Again, a great night, although i paid for it at work today. Hope you all have a great Halloween tomorrow! 

Lastly, i was awarded 'The Versatile Blogger' award from the gorgeous Natasha at silhouette skies recently, so i will carry on the tradition of writing 7 facts about myself before listing my favourite 10 blogs.  

1. I'm 5"9 (really tall in other words) and my legs make up for about 80% of my body
2. I've been with my boyfriend for a year and a half nearly! 
3. I love Ed Sheeran (even before he got popular) and saw him live at an example gig about a year ago. 
4. I want to be a graphic designer when i'm older
5. I will live in London at some point in my life
6. Chase and Status is the best gig i've been to, by far 
7. I'm actually about a size 12 and i'm not really skinny like most bloggers.

Today's Outfit:

Jumper: £2.99, charity shop
Shirt: £3.99, charity shop
Leggings: £5?, primark
I wore this today for my first day of work experience, (which i haven't told you about yet) and my god is it getting nippy outside! I was freezing in my grandad jumper! But yeah, it's my half term holidays atm, so i'm spending the week working in a local photography studio/business for free. I'm crazy, but it'll look good on my uni application and CV. Sorry for not blogging when i said i would, there was a really serious family worry/problem but it's all fine now, so i'll try and be more regular. A lot has happened this week actually, other than that, i've finally bought curtains, well material for mother to make them (she's an artistic genius i swear), i've bought my own sewing machine for her to teach me! (these are the kind of crazy things i end up doing when i have to pass time in dunelm waiting for material to be cut and measured), i've been a sailor at a fancy dress party, i'll post photo's at some point... and i got paid again, therefore i also have a recent purchases post due! Now to catch up on all your life's...

Weekend Wants:

Both £19.99, 
Ok, so not the usual kind of post from me, but i might try and make this a weekly thing, although some weeks i can garuntee there'll just be nothing that appeals to me on any online shops (hard to believe i know). But yeah, i just can't get over how much i love these jumpers. I have an image of me wearing either in a really over-sized size with a pair of woolly leggings in winter. I just think they're gorgeous. But i honestly can't choose my favourite. I think the colour of the first ones the best, but i've always had a thing for the peace sign so i'm instantly drawn to the 2nd one. Let me know which ones your favourite? Maybe i'll just have to buy them both, afterall, they're only £20 each!

Tweed Blazer, £5.99, charity shop

Skirt: £7, H&M sale

Navy Cardigan, £4.99, charity shop

Shoes: £12, primark

Shirt/Kimono/?: £2.99, charity shop

shirt: £3.99, charity shop

Shirt: £4.50, charity shop

As you can see i've been a pretty busy lady with the shopping! Actually, most of it i picked up last saturday on a 'splurge'. It's great because what i'd class as a splurge now only costs me about £20 and i get loads for it! Honestly, i couldn't love charity shops anymore than i already do, and i'm really lucky to have a couple of really good, really well priced ones near me! Just a bit of advice, if you are new to the 'charity shopping' or even if you're not, i'd definitely avoid British Heat Foundation, i've found there prices are ridiculous compared to all the others! If anyone has any tips, i'd love to here them :)  There's nothing better than finding the perfect bargain! xo

Today's Outfit:

Shirt: £3.99, charity shop
Trousers: £10, primark
Shoes: £12, primark
Satchel, £6, primark. 
I'm so sorry about just disappearing for a couple of weeks, i've just been completely bombarded with 6th form, too many hours at work and way too much art cswk, but i'm definitely going to try and blog more frequently, i enjoy it too much to not! 
Anyway, this is what i'm wearing to go to the boyfriends tonight. I know, quite over-dressed but when you spend half your life in asda uniform you take any opportunity you can to dress-up! Anyway, i hope you've all been having a lovely october, so glad the 'bad' weathers finally rolling in, time to snuggle up and layer up. 
I'll post later tonight to show you all the clothes i've been collecting over the last couple of weeks, for now though, i definitely need to catch up on x factor!
