A much needed girly weekend | A very small haul


As mentioned in a previous post, I had my gorgeous friend Natalie visiting me this weekend and we had the most stereotypical girly weekend and it was amazing. The most important part of a girly weekend as you all know is shopping, so here are my purchases.

Living off a student budget means Primark is my best friend. First I picked up a few of the £5 dresses to try on in an attempt to wear something other than skinny jeans and these are the two that I picked. I know these aren't the most exciting of colours but they are so comfortable and easy to wear. They will be ideal for days at uni when the current storms in Devon stop (I don't want to flash my pants to everyone!). These will be ideal with a cardi/big jumper, thick tights, and boots.

My staple items from Primark are always pyjama bottoms and they did not let me down. I love their PJ's as they are so comfy and have pockets!! Ideal for lazy days at home when you can't go anywhere with out your phone. I absolutely adore the print on these and they are well worth the £5 I paid! The next item is this purple acid wash tee from the men's section. I always have a look at the men's tops in Primark as the basics are so much better quality than the women's. This was £6 and will go well with my black skinnies and shorts and tights and the necklace below.

One resolution of mine this year was to wear more jewellery and I have started this off with a simple, statement necklace (is that a thing?) from H&M. This was £6.99 and will help brighten up plain jumpers and t-shirts. These bangles are another simple way for me to enter the jewellery world. These are very basic and cost me a whole £1 in Primark but have really lovely designs.

The rest of our weekend has consisted of pizza, chocolate, and tea. TOP TIP: put Minstrels in the microwave for 45 - 60 seconds before eating and they are all melty and perfect in the middle, yumm. Plus a lot of DVD's, our favourite being Crazy, Stupid, Love because Ryan Gosling, need I say anymore? This weekend has been such a needed break for both of us from Uni work and I don't think I'm quite ready so head onto campus tomorrow. :(

Here, have a vain selfie of the pair of us.

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
