Birthday Money Well Spent!

As i mentioned in my previous post, it was my 20th birthday the weekend just gone.
Although, because i work full time and buy myself everything i want/need/see.
I was kind of struggling on ideas as to what i wanted for my birthday, so i opted for the boring option - money.
I normally hate getting/giving money for birthdays because there's no thought into it whatsoever.
I personally love going to peoples favourite shops and buying them a gift card, or buying them a meaningful pandora charm.
But, Seen as it's now bitter weather, i decided to nip into town and treat myself to a new winter wardrobe with my pennies.
I can definitely see this jumper as being my winter favourite. It's a gold/mocha colour in person, and also has a glitter effect to give it that girly glam look.
It's quite a short baggy jumper, so it gives you that sort of dressed down/casual feel whilst wearing it.
I'm going to team this with some thick leggings, cropped brown boots and some bangles to give it a boho sort of look.

The colour of this jumper is gorgeous!
If you know me personally, you'll know my favourite colour is coral/peach, so when i saw this little beauty i snapped it up.
It's quite a long jumper so will definitely keep you warm on winter nights.
The style of it sort of reminds me of the jumpers my nanna used to knit me when i was little, i love that style.

A lady came into my work with this exact jumper on and i just fell in love with it.
The colour is just gorgeous, nice and bright to cheer you up on them miserable winter days.
It's a crop jumper so it's not really the most practical to keep you warm, but i suppose as long as you look good.

This top was on the sale rack for £2.
There wasn't a chance i was missing out on this.
It fits as a peplum top and looks so pretty with a pair of jeans and some ankle boots.
The pastel colour definitely sold it to me.

I apologise for the quality of this picture. (Don't know what happened)
I love Primarks new range of tshirts, there's loads to choose from.
I love the print on this, roses are my favourite flower.

Ever since i was a child, i've been in LOVE with mickey mouse.
This tshirt caught my eye straight away when i saw it and rooted around for 5 minutes trying to find my size as i reallllyyyy wanted it.
I love how it's black and white, and simple.
Makes it not too in your face.

Tops of this style seem to be in fashion.
My friend has the dress top on with a pair of converse and it made me really want one.
I reckon it would look really nice with a pair of skinny jeans and some ugg style boots on to keep it in line with the winter theme.

I might sound sad, but this is one of my best buys.
I've got it on as i'm writing this blog.
Comfy doesn't even come close, it's nice to wear just to wear round the house when it get's a bit chilly.
Every year do i buy these, they're one of my winter must haves.
They're so practical, whether it be with jeans or leggings.
Plus they keep my feet nice and warm on the way to work.
Definitely getting these in every colour.

I lost my scarf on a ride at the bonfire faire last year, so i've been on the look out for a new one this year.
Then i stumbled across this beauty.
You can't really see in the pictures, but it's got a cream pattern with a gold shimmer effect, which means i can wear it with near enoguh everything - bonus.

I'm always buying ipad cases, but they never seem to last, as they always fade or break, so when i saw this pouch for £3, i couldn't resist.
My ipad fits nice and snug inside it, aswell as stopping it from getting scratched.
What's not to love?

This is without a doubt my best buy out of the lot.
If you know me, you'll know that i'm River Island obsessed.
So i took myself upstairs to the Bags/Purses department, and i was there for literally 5 minutes before i found this little beauty.
It has one section for Cards, and another for Change.
I love the gold and white look, classy ;)
River Island.
