Say 'hello' to my beautiful new bag! If you follow me on twitter, you're probably bored of hearing about it, but I absolutely adore it. I spied it with my sister in Selfridges a few days ago, and I thought I'd have a little look, but never dreamed that I'd leave the shop with it! I should have photographed them really, but basically, it was missing 4 studs (which you absolutely can't tell) so instead of being £695, it was massively reduced! I decided that because I fell so, so in love with it, and I've never felt such buttery soft leather, I should buy it with some of my 21st birthday money, and I'm so glad that I did! Aside from the miserable sales assistant (why do they assume that everyone is poor? I am poor, but please don't insult me you horrible cow!) who I really hope doesn't get ANY commission ever.

The shorts are new too; I picked them up in Topshop the same day while I was at the Trafford centre after having them on my wish list for a while. I rarely wear shorts, especially not ones this short, and I know they're really not flattering AT all on my shape, but I just love the pattern. They have some ruffles over the pockets too, and these are the FIRST shorts to ever fit my waist properly - they're usually far too low cut or too big if they fit my bum! Such a pain.

And lastly, these beautiful shoes, which fit like a glove and are of AMAZING quality cost me guess how much? £1. ONE ENGLISH POUND. How you're asking? Because the crazy people at Miista decided to do a sale whereby people tweet about the shoe they want to be cheaper, and based on their Klout score, they knock a percentage off! The sale ends on Friday so hurry up and get tweeting while you can! My flatmate and I are after these gorgeous wedges after seeing them on the Topshop website - so feel free to tweet for us ;)

I also have to acknowledge that I've hit over 500 GFC readers! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I really appreciate every single face that pops up on there and your comments make my day :) I can't believe my blog is barely a year old, I feel like it has come so far for such a crap, sporadic blogger like myself. Must. Try. Harder. Thank you to all of you, old readers and new, for taking the time to read my blog :)
