Coat: Urban Outfitters (old)
Jumper: H&M £14.99
Shirt: Topshop
Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: River Island
Bag: River Island
Rings: Asos & Topshop
Bracelets: Topshop
Nail Varnish: Barry M 

So this is what I wore today on my 'day off' I rewarded myself with after handing in the first part of my dissertation to be checked over. I spent the morning waiting around for an Asos parcel i ordered yesterday, only to receive an email from Uniday's saying it was £25% off today (Weeps a little). I was tempted to send them back and buy again with the extra money off, but then I am too inpatient to wait for them to arrive again!
I then popped to the Trafford Centre once again ( the weathers too cold to be wandering into town) and went to watch Gangster Squad, which was actually really good! 
Anyway, the outfit, I bought these jeans, along with River Island tartan ones, before Christmas, with the intention 'I'll buy both, but promise I will take one back'. Of course that didn't happen, and both pairs are now sitting in my wardrobe. I prefer the River Island ones, as they are proper tartan, but these also do the trick. I teamed it with my lovely new shoes I got from the River Island sale. Although I love them... the feeling is apparently not mutual, and I now have blisters in places i didn't know possible. I think it may be trainers for the rest of the week now! Pahhh! Just kidding! 
Right, time to finish my self reward day with yet another film, Lawless. 

p.s My hair is at a really awkward length, just grow alright! :'-(

H&M £9.99

H&M £14.99

Primark (Mens) £7

H&M , £4.99ish

Primark Super slim stretch jeans £11.99

H&M £14ish 
H&M £12ish 

H&M £24

Topshop: Reduced from £25 - £4.50

Topshop: Reduced from £25- £4.50

Both Topshop: £10 each reduced to £2.50

Rings: Both Topshop: £2.50 each 
Superdrugs: MUA Makeup £2-4.

So these are the bits and bobs I picked up from the Trafford Centre the other day. I did get some more make-up, but for some reason i cant upload it! 
I love the printed trousers from H&M! They are a perfect transitional piece and so so cheap, it would have been rude not to! 
I actually nipped back to the Trafford today, I swapped the black and white H&M jumper for a smaller size, as i felt it hung funny on my hips. I also swapped the multi-coloured chain necklace from Topshop, as, if you look closely, you'll see there's a gem missing. It was not a good idea to go into Topshop, I spent the next half an hour wandering around spending money in my head I don't have and left feeling very sorry for myself. You will be mine one day :'-). 
I bought the MUA make-up as I wanted a couple of basics as 'back-up' makeup. I used the BB cream earlier and its a lot thicker than other ones I tried, but hey ho, cant complain when it was around £3. I'm sure I'll still get some use out of it. 

Time to continue with my beloved dissertation.

At the end of the day

  Dress: Primark
Necklace: H&M
Jacket: Urban Outfitters (Old)
Belt: H&M
Watch: Asos
Rings: Asos, H&M, Forever 21 
Tights: Topshop
Shoes: Topshop Adonis

Hey there!  I wore this outfit a couple of days, but didn't get around to posting. I got this dress just before Christmas as I love a bit of marl and as it was only around £12, it didnt break the bank. I love these tights, I've had them for a while, but saw them in the Topshop sale earlier. I cant believe how cold it is! Currently sat snuggled up watching daytime TV trying to keep warm. It's hardly snowed here in Manchester, so I thought id get out the house whilst I still could and hit the Trafford Centre with the boyfriend. I spent a little more than I anticipated, but got a few bargains, got some jewellery from Topshop and it was only when I got home I realised it should have come to £90! I got it for a measly £17. Wish I'd gotten more now :'-(. My Minnie mouse nails where super cute when i painted them days ago, looking a little grubby now, but still wanted to show. I got them from Ebay for around £2. Got some cat ones as well which I'll try out next time.

As you may have noticed, the title is from Les Mis, I went to watch it on Wednesday and it went beyond my expectations! I've had all the songs stuck in my head since and its just incredible to think they sang that all live as well!  

Now, time for me to get my hands back under this duvet and keep warm.

 Skirt : Forever 21
Plain v-neck: Forever 21
Jacket: H&M
Bag: River Island
Boots: River Island
Necklace: Forever 21
Watch: Asos

Again, I wore this to university today, probably not a very sensible choice as the skirt is exceptionally short. I  found myself constantly hiking it down. I didn't photo graph very well due to crap lighting so I took a clearer picture on my lovely bathroom floor. It is in fact 'pleather' and it was love at first sight. The boots are super comfy. They are great day time heel for girls who are already 5'6.5" and remind me a little of the Litas (a little...).
I've spent the whole day procrastinating over assignments that are due in. Hoping once next week is out the way I will have more time to start this blog properly and actually try take some decent pictures!

Anyway, back to the assignment,

Gemma XO
