As you can see I have now flown the nest from halls and am living in a shared house ( with 9 people – I know crazy right?!). I got the loft room – it’s rather quaint and makes my feel a bit like Harry Potter whilst he’s still living with the Dursleys but in a good way. Anyway thought I share it with you now that I’ve finally unpacked …after 2 weeks.
I’ve done a lot this summer; girls’ holiday, festivals, working a mundane summer job at 3am 4 days a week…
Needless to say my bank balance has been rather under the weather as of late, meaning my usual “TREAT YO SELF” shopping trips have completely gone out the window! When it comes to style though one must always remain creative and optimistic even on the darkest of days when the Newlook sale is suddenly way beyond your budget. On a trip to Lincoln to see my dear friend Hollie we decided to wander through its vast array of charity shops, which is where I found the H&M snake-print dress for £2.00 (snake print is my guilty pleasure, sorry), it was giving me an Alexa Chung vibe I just couldn’t say no to.
The shoes were actually from the previously mentioned girls’ holiday to the classy land of Kavos, Corfu. We thought it would be a good idea to catch a bus to Corfu Town, in such of fake Ray Bans and passable Mulberry purses – in reality all we found were very rude shop assistants in the few shops which were actually open. The shoes came from one of these very rude shop assistants, even though normally I would have just walked out after receiving such awful service but…well – these shoes were only €5 so I actually bought 2 pairs in different colours
oops. I may be wrong here but I think that’s about £3? Giving me a beautiful grand total of FIVE POUNDS!! *Applause for the £5 wonder*
