High Resolution

Happy New Year!!!

I'm a massive fan of resolutions; I'm on a constant (and often unsuccessful) crusade for self-improvement as it is, so any excuse and I'm there.

This year, I resolve to:

1. Grow my hair
Possibly the laziest resolution ever, as it involves doing precisely nothing - but this will be a challenge for me, I promise. I get very restless.

2. Keep my room tidier
If you knew me, you'd know why.

3. Save money
...Hopefully for a Summer holiday, or some future travelling. The hardest thing about saving money for me, is, of course, curbing my shopping habits. I find that I can limit myself but not give up shopping entirely! Which means the sales are my best friend, as I love a good bargain.

For some genuinely fantastic tips on sale shopping, check out my flatmate's website, Cocktails to Couture.
I've already made a start on this resolution; I've paid off my overdraft & limited my sale-shopping - and all on the first day of the year, and with my student loan still to come!

So far, I've bought a couple of items from my Christmas wishlist:


1. Lomography Diana 'Dreamer' Camera, £50
2. Colour film x3, £15
3. BDG Preppy Cardigan, £15 (reduced from £32)
(a replacement for my knackered old grey cardigan; I have this cardigan in 'raspberry' already & wear it all the time so I consider this a very wise purchase!)

I have a wishlist of items on ASOS that I'm going to hopefully gradually stock up on, but only when I'm absolutely sure I can afford a treat. At the moment, I'm enjoying just watching their prices slowly fall. Many of them have been featured on the blog already (here and here), but there they are:

ASOS Contrast Hem Ponte Shift Dress ASOS PERFECT Platform Court Shoes
ASOS Embellished Collar Shift Dress ASOS Double Wrap Super Skinny Waist Belt
