As you can probably guess, the first of my priorities after weeks of revising and exams was to hit the high street and go shopping! I feel like for the past month I have been so engrossed in my books that the feeling of being able to do what I want and not constantly eyeing up the time is quite strange. I don’t know if this is a common thing, but, whenever I go through a revision period I’m consciously timing myself doing even the smallest things, like watching TV or making lunch. So this feeling of complete freedom is as much a relief as it is strange.

Although timing wasn’t an issue, as always, money was. So I am pleased to admit, that despite wanting to buy the many gorgeous garments I saw, I resisted the urge and treated to myself to just a pack of rings. With the new craze on midi rings I was feeling a bit left behind. I had wanted some midi rings for a while now and hadn’t had the time to go shopping. So, being a lady of leisure now I seized the opportunity and after spotting a bargain in H&M at only £3.99, I treated myself to the pack of rings.  I know what you’re thinking, really broke the bank there Ammarrah! But my mum always says, “you look after the pennies, the pennies look after the pounds and the pounds look after themselves.” A phrase I’m constantly trying to drum in to my head these days.

Another thing I’m trying to implement when I go shopping which seems to be helping me refrain from the unnecessary overload buying is picturing the clothes pouring out of my wardrobe. With this picture in mind, I then think to myself, will you get your money’s worth? If the answer is no, swiftly move on before your logic runs off  leaving you to spend more money than necessary. Only to have him whack you in the face with your bank statement. You may be wondering what exactly I mean by getting your money’s worth, well, if you already have many outfits you can match with this garment and not a case of, I can buy this and buy that and it’ll go perfectly, because that leads to one big chain reaction leading to spending and more spending… before you know it, you’ll be back to stage broke.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I am going to be starting my youtube channel and once a month I will video logging the items I have bought. I have set myself a limit of 5 items a month and hopefully, fingers crossed, I’ll be able to stick to this.

And there you have another outfit of the day, with another casual look. Please let me know what you think in the comments below, and if you have any questions for the Q&A youtube video please include them in the comments too.

Lots of love,

Ammarrah xo

      Thank you Becky! The nail varnish is one from the gelish range, the all have strange names and I think this one is called “Brights have more fun,” Really glad you liked the outfit x

    A very simple yet stylish look, perfect for trying clothes on during a shopping trip without it being a hassle (even though you weren’t buying!) And the hat is a great statement accessory. Enjoy your post exam freedom before it all starts again!
