Winter Warmers 
Clothing haul

- It is a glorious feeling knowing your bank account has a few shopping stash pennies inside it, without the guilty feeling when you drain out your last fiver on some Topshop earrings. Post birthday I am happy to say that I don't feel guilty literally bouncing into the shops.

This week, that is exactly what I have done.

I often find that in the winter I dress extremely weather inappropriate and in the summer I dress for colder temperatures. weirdo . After freezing my poor self in hail and gale force winds on Saturday night I have deservantly contracted the bad cold. I say bad because I want to make it sound worse than a few sniffles but can't go quite as far as saying i'm bed ridden with flu. This aside I do feel pretty damn ropey. This unfortunate factor is not helped when I am walking around wearing a floaty blouse and a leather jacket. Yes, as a legal adult my mother still had her displeased and unimpressed opinion about this.


I paid a visit to New Look and bought this lovely knitted jumper in a beige / camel shade. I'm not really one for the 'mums cardigan' look but this winter warmer was just what I was looking for. It is from the 'tall' range (and we all know that certainly is NOT me, currently standing at five foot 3) but I like how it covers me all up and feels durable and sturdy. It also came in a maroon red but that shade clashed a little with my hair. It was £17. (pre student discount which at New Look is 10%)

Next on the list was this 'snood'. Does anybody else snigger inside and in their head say snooooood No? okay maybe that is just me!
I bought this one in a shade that I can only describe as a 'watered mustard'. It matches nicely with my new cardigan and I love the idea of a scarf that doesn't have the annoying 'taily' bits and the ability to wrap it around your neck twice without being strangled. I love it, it is warm and comfy and makes me 
feel all 'red nosed' and Christmassy. The Snoooood cost £7 (pre student discount)


I then ambled over to TK Maxx, well you can't really avoid that beautiful place can you?
After eyeing it up for weeks I finally bought this furry squirrel-esc gillet with beautiful rhinestone embellishment on the collar.


I love it for layering over jumpers and it is also suitable for a night out as it 'dressy' enough. I already have a similar furry gillet and it was that, that inspired me to purchase this one. It retailed at £36.


My next puchase was from the 'Mod Box' at TK Maxx I love their quirky blouses and t shirts in the range and although I was eyeing up a cardigan I picked up this beautiful and unique blouse and fell in love for a number of reasons.


1) It is floaty, light and has fringing!

2) The shape of the blouse when it is on is sort of 'Poncho - esc) I LOVE that.

3) IT IS PEACOCK FEATHER GALORE! Woohoo! I love peacock feather's and in the foreseeable future I hope to be brave and get inked up with a peacock feather just above my ankle.

The blouse was a barginous £12!


Lastly, I pottered down to a shop housing a very smiley asian man and an array of fluorescent stickers on the window shouting " ALL HANDBAGS £10" well I was like ooh hello! I am a handbag girl, shoes = mehh handbags = yeah! I have so many handbags, one more won't hurt right? For a tenner I bought this crocodile, pleather 'doctors style' bag.


Unfortunatley it holds barely anything and the shoulder strap broke but hey ho! It looks good! I feel like a proper little lady walking around with it hung in the crook of my arm! NEGATIVES ASDE! LEOPARD PRINT LINING FTW!

As I finish college early on Friday's I have designated this day to filming, editing, uploading day on YouTube. I know that I already tweeted this but would you prefer an 'Updated what's in my bag?" Or the '13 personal questions tag' ( or whatever it is called these days )

I have a gruelling psychology mock exam tomorrow. :( Not to be a moaning merle but it really hits me how close my A2 exams are and how little I feel I know. eek!

Are there any readers out there who are in my position?

ooh ps, a few people on Twitter asked to see how we decorate our house at Christmas as I told you we have themed tree's, do you still want a post on that? Let me know below.

Love, Holl



  1. Oh my god I need that bag! Only £10 too! It must of been fate ;)

  2. Love the bag and the collar. I never venture into TK Maxx, the thought of rummaging always puts me off, but I think it's about time I brave it! x

  3. you make me want to go shopping like RIGHT NOW!!

  4. oooh i love a good bargain and i love handbags - perfect combination :D xx

  5. If you are making a move or are going away for a short time then one question that will plague you is what to do with all my goods. The easiest answer is that you can store it with warehouses or with self storage facilities. Self Storage facilities are a good option as you can save a lot on costs as you take care of a lot of work like packing goods on your own, transporting them yourself, etc.
