In the video I left these until the end so I guess I will start with SHOES! I have a small obsession with shoes but everyone has their thing right? Mine just happens to be shoes…and bags…and clothes and well the list could go on.

Clothes are another obsession of mine. I have a lot and don’t wear all of them. Cliché, I know.
I picked up this kimono from H&M in the sales for about £7 as I’ve had my eyes on it since the summer. You can be sure that I will be wearing this a lot when England decides to warm itself up again. I also picked up a maroon and black and white striped crop top because they were £3 each. Literally, there was no other motive behind those purchases. I got an olive green regular length top from Primark as I was drawn to it because of the crochet detailing on the hem. Plus it is a great transitional piece and colour from winter to spring.

think it’s important to pick up some basic all year round pieces so I picked up a navy blue v neck t shirt from H&M because you can never have enough of those. They go with anything and everything. I picked up the infamous green checked shirt from H&M that everyone and their mother has. Although it fits in slightly awkward places, it’s probably a sign telling me to lose some weight but regardless, the versatility is just…on point.

In the video I was wearing a grey turtle neck sweater from new look and I go on a little too much about it. The simplicity is bliss and it goes with everything. Formal, casual, smart or even comfort, the turtle neck just makes it great for everything.
Now whilst my mum does the weekly shop in Morrisons, I use that opportunity to browse some of the homeware and stationary isles. And that week was a hit. I picked up some woven brown baskets I have wanted to repurchase for some time now and I think I will save them for my university room. It’s all very exciting (wow I am sad). I also picked up some good old revision/a levels essentials. You can never have too many of those.
Another key revision essential which I am forever running out of is revision cards. I took full liberty of their 3 for 2 offer in W H Smith and got some coloured and plain ones. This is the perfect reminder to me to actually start revising.
My sister was kind enough to give me her black backpack and I thought I would give this trend a whirl. I have been toying with the idea of trying it out but I could never bring myself to spend the money on a trend item. I managed to get my hands on Girl Online by Zoe Sugg in asda for £5 to have as like a piece of history. And I got a free sports direct mug the size of my face with my puma trainers. I have a love hate relationship with it.
Now that a Poundland has opened up about a 15 minute walk from my house, it definitely spells trouble – for my bank account that it. Sometimes they just have really good stuff in there that I just end up getting for the sake of it. Sally Hansen and Rimmel London are two makeup brands that tend to be in bulk in there so I most definitely took advantage of that. The name of everything I got is annotated on the picture.
And for the bonus purchase which only arrived on my doorstep a couple of days ago. I was browsing the Zara website and just landed on the handbags sale page. Would you believe it? I don’t know how it got there. I purchased a vibrant yellow clutch/side bag that I have seen Zoella sporting for about a year now and when I say it on sale, I had to get my hands on it. Now there was a black bag too which goes with everything, I couldn’t decide what one to get and somehow both ended up at my doorstep.
