want: new look


L-R

Doing some epic procrastination today. Am I the only one who checks all of the highstreet websites daily? No? I knew it! I'm on a "desprately-trying-to-not-spend-but-spends-ridic-moneyz-anyway" kick at the moment. I've got alot of things to pay out for this month, Also trying to saving to move out when I graduate. Which isn't even that far away now, Once these hand ins I've got this week and next are done I've got 5 weeks off for Easter then, 5 weeks back and I'm done forevz. A bit scary really!

I haven't bought much clothes recently though, mainly because I dont like alot of clothes that are out at the moment. I'm not really into S/S clothes at all as I love my jumpers and my cardigans. I do however like some of the colours around at the moment. Especially mint green. I've had a sneaky eye on that mint jumper for ages now, and I think I'll be naughty and buy it!

I got a email from Money Saving Expert the other day,  website I highly recommend signing up for if your into discount codes and bargains. I normally wont buy anything from websites unless theres a free shipping code or a discount code! Anyway if you use NLTREAT you get 20% off till the end of march. WINNING!

  11. God bless Martin Lewis! He has saved me many a pretty penny when I've been shopping online :)

    And you're not alone... I tend to browse daily too... which is awful for bank balance... :( ASOS, Topshop and New Look are the main culprits!

    Love your wish list - spot on! x x

  24. Don't worry, I've fallen victim to scanning highstreet items online on a daily basis too. I'm enamored with mint green, and still holding on to jumpers and cardigans as well. Thanks for sharing the discount!

  29. It's that funny time of year where no one knows what to wear. It's sunny.. but it's also cold.. A few of these pieces would be perfect for these confusing mornings! Xx

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ahhh... I'm just the same. I'm going to move out in summer after I've finished school, so I need to save and save and save, but it's spring, the time of the year you're in desperate need for clothes you can't even wear yet, because it's for summer. I just check out online shops every now and then, put everything into my bag, that I'd like to have, then sort out things, which don't suit me anyway, which are way to expensive, bad quality or not worth the money and in the end end up with what I'd need, which is nothing. It shows me that I have everything I need in my closet, but by the way I'd need a new one, the old one is far too small!

  31. Loving your NL picks. I've seen so many things in our lookbook that I love, but they never come to my store. Boo.

    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm total opposite - I can't wait to give up all the sweaters & bulk. It's time for spring! I say go for the sweater, though. It's good to be naughty (; and especially if you have a discount code. The only time I buy myself new stuff is if it's on sale or I have a code haha :p

    good luck making it through the next couple of weeks! (:

    ReplyDelete
  33. im liking at least half the s/s collections. time flies by so quick it's unbelivable, before you know it, you're already finished!
    good luck in saving up for a new place!

  39. im all over mint green this week. I took my friends bunny for a walk (yes i said bunny) and it had a mint green lead - bunny is white iv decided is the most perfect combo. Not the bunny and the lead the mint green and white. anyway cut a long story short that was my reasoning for reawakening mint green! inspiration comes from everywhere lol x
