ponderings and purchases

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

As of this week I'm at uni again, cue sad face and an onslaught of assignments before the end of semester approaches. Anyway, what better way to ward off the post-break blues than with a spot of shopping? If there's anything you should know about me it's that I like wasting money on novelty stuff, which can be problematic when trying not to look like I wear the same thing everyday... In all honesty though, clothes shopping is a huge hassle to me, so I rarely do it unless I'm in a specific mood. Moving on with the stuff I got!

Various things I picked up from Daiso, aka the best store in existence. Even though the price of $2.80 an item is expensive by global standards, it's so hard for me not to grab everything in sight whenever I'm there... I always manage to find stuff I never even knew I needed!

Floral shirt from Lipsy and knit jumper from Miss Shop. Once again I'm in a rut of buying too many black clothes, but at least I kind of have an excuse since winter's on its way again...

Nothing like some new nail colours to lift my spirits. I don't know what it is but lately I'm really obsessed with painting my nails... so much so that seeing them bare is weird to me now. This could become a really bad habit, but at least my nails will look decent as a result!

As I type this, I can't stop thinking how crazy it is that tomorrow will be May... it's that point of the year when I notice how fast the months have flown by, and get sad knowing I haven't done anything really memorable! Thankfully I have stuff coming up to keep me busy, so that should be an excellent way of taking my mind off bigger, more depressing things in the meantime. Hope you all have a great week, and see you soon!

  11. daiso is the best!!! i have to change trains every day on my way to and from work and there is a daiso with a supermarket attached at the train station i have to stop at so if i have a big gap between train times i just go wander in daiso because it's more interesting than standing on the platform waiting for the train. unfortunately this means i buy a lot of stuff from there that i don't need!
