After trying to be a little bit conservative with my spending (I am supposed to be a student after all, right?) I did indulge in a little bit of shopping last week. Although I was generally good and even avoided all of those special student events where the shops have an extra discount just for that day/night/week. (That's the only time I find it plausible to buy spend in Topshop and I just couldn't trust myself! a side note, I'm just not loving Topshop much these days).

I'm sure my recent purchases will trickle into my posts along the way, but here's showcasing my new (and very bargainous) arm candy.

This is my new bag for uni, after the burden of everyday carrying books and lots of random rubbish began to show on my beloved Zara handbag.
I wanted something fairly cheap but also a bit stylish and obviously big enough to hold the usual stuff I cart around campus. I found this is New Look for the fair sum of....wait for it...£14.99. So with 10% student discount this bag only set me back £13.50. Wise purchase I think. For that price I won't be too sad if it falls apart at the ed of the year. Although I hope it doesn't because I actually quite like it! (They have it in black too but I was trying to break out of my clone went for the equally predictable tan... Sorry there's no link, I can't find them online).
I love New Look for affordably and high street style, although I do have a gripe with them at the moment, but I won't bore you with that right now.

Rest of the outfit...
