Did you have a good Halloween? I can’t believe it’s already November!
To celebrate a brand new month, I thought I’d share a few of my current desires with you all (NB: this post doesn’t include Jake Gyllenhaal. It does include chocolate though, which is almost as good).
|Want to know where everything’s from? It’s on my Polyvore.
Prone to the odd splurge?
Is it just me, or is working out when to save and when to spend really difficult? As I’ve transitioned from part-time to full-time work in my post-University years, I’ve had to totally readjust my approach to finances.I’m not bad with money – although I might be a shopaholic, I don’t have Becky Bloomwood’s issues of angry bank managers or credit card bills to hide under my bed. But I’ll be the first to admit I’m no saver or a budget-setter either. And I’m prone to the odd splurge here and there…
But now that I have so many things I want, I have promised myself I will start saving. From new gadgets and more clothes (naturally) to a trip to New York and a somewhere lovely to live one day…
In the meantime, these wishlists can help me focus on what to buy when I can spend!
The Autumn clothes fund.
As you can see, there’s a rather extravagant item on my wishlist this month – an iPad! I’ve been very tempted to buy one for months and November might be the month I take the plunge.
There’s also my Autumn clothes fund. The snuggly grey Topshop jumper and over the knee suede boots by Next have both stolen my heart. I’d also love a leather jacket to don for the bizarre in-between weather we’ve been having (who else has been hating the ‘coat or no coat?’ dilemma every morning since September?).
I’ve also been seduced by these ripped knee jeans- but instead of buying a new pair, I’m going to customise an old pair. I’ll definitely be sharing the results over on Instagram!
And whilst the evenings get darker and chillier, I’ll be snuggling in my duvet with multiple mugs of hot chocolate and Richard Ayoade’s new book! Perfection.
