Hey guys!
Hope you're all well! I've got a few purchases to share with you guys, since my stress usually manifests itself as shopping! I see it as an investment in my education if it helps me to stay calm with looming deadlines and boring hours spent studying! So firstly is my new long jumper/dress from Illustrated People at Topshop, totally love this thing!

Please excuse the fringe/camera in front of face, I don't usually like to take mirror shots but I was having trouble finding my foundation this morning and so that is my real naked face! I foudn it eventually...right on my table where it always is, lying on its side, but not after much screaming, kicking and child-like pouting! This jumper is maybe the third thing I have with wolves on, where will it end!
This sweet bracelet I got as a kind of good luck charm for exams from this super-sweet shop on etsy! The shop is based in the UK so shipping is really cheap for us Brits!
I was making my way to the supermarket today when I saw an "everything is 99p" sign in the window of a charity shop, I obviously went in, I am nothing if not a philanthropist! I found this waistcoat-cardigan thing which is ace because I've been looking for one for ages, I can't say how many times I've picked up the H&M ones and wandered around with them, only to put them back!
I also got this granny-ish jumper, I like the details on it and since it's no longer jacket weather it'll come in handy!

I also bought this dress from Topshop, to go with my £1.80 heels but I am about 90% sure that I'm going to swap it for this one tomorrow, so fickle! I'm just in love with its denim-y goodness, its cut-out back and its pockets! I do not think it's a good idea for me, a girl with no income, to buy both...

Oh and some of you asked where I got shoes for £1.60, it was this shop near my uni, called qs..I don't know if it's a chain or an Edinburgh thing but it's like a not-so-hot Primark!

Love the wolf shirt because well wolves are so freakin sweet. I don't have anything like that but I'm jealous of your collection. And the jumper, I love granny stuff that becomes modern when you put it all together.
