Life Update

We were in the supermarket the other day and Ben decided to buy me some flowers, yay! So they’re sat on our table with our Mickey from Florida.
Yet again, I have succumbed to Sianness and fallen ill – this time just seems to be some sort of allergic reaction with a horrible itchy red rash on my face and a red sore throat. It started yesterday and seems to have gone down a lot today, but is now all dry and horrible – looks like no make up for a few days! I really wanted to do an outfit post yesterday because…
…my Modcloth Cabin Fever sale parcel finally arrived!! Unfortunately I had to pay customs charges, which I didn’t have to last time, but when I got 4 items in the sale all for under £10 each, I wasn’t too bothered!! I wore one of the dresses (I got 2 dresses) yesterday, so I really wanted to take photos, but the rash on the my face would probably have terrified you!! But today since it’s less red, I thought it would be okay to take photos of the T shirt and shorts I got. They’re both actually a little big, despite ordering an S in each, I know the T shirt is supposed to be oversized, but the shorts should be a little tighter in my opinion.
And look, we’ve reverted to indoor photos =( First my quality is down the drain because of lack of DSLR, and now they’re face couldn’t cope with the freezing wind, plus I didn’t want to put shoes on haha!! I’ve also randomly got some pictures of food to share: we had fajitas the other night, so I made some salsa and guacamole to go along with them:
Hmmm, they don’t look so appetising close up do they?! If anyone wants any recipes, these are pretty my own I made up on the spot, so let me know and I’ll post them. We actually had turkey fajitas for a change, and it worked really well – the turkey was a lot cheaper and leaner than chicken, despite the tantrum I had about not wanting to change from chicken!! 
Now I will be back soon with proper outfit photos (although not with my own camera for a while still, haven’t had a reply from Canon for a week..), but they will be proper outfits and outdoor photos, promise!! And I’ll be wearing make up them too haha =D Oh and notice my necklace, how awesome is it?! Harry Potter glasses with an attached lightning scar!! My sister got it for me for Christmas =) I’m trying to wear different jewellery at the moment, but it’s difficult to wear longer necklaces under the scarves I wear all the time in winter haha =D
Cardigan: New Look
Harry Potter Necklace: Etsy (Christmas present from Beth)
Top: Modcloth
Belt: Topshop
Shorts: Modcloth
And a final note on the shopping ban: it’s still going well!! I haven’t set foot in a single clothes shop despite being in Newcastle for a week! Again I’ve found it tough with websites popping up on blogs, email and Facebook and I’ve strayed onto a few, but not bought anything. I wouldn’t have needed to really spend anything (apart from food obviously!) this week, if I didn’t have to buy new books for uni. Fortunately it’s only been £20 so far, and I think it’ll only be another £10 on top of that, so not as bad as some terms, once I had one book that cost £60 – my parents ended up getting me it for my birthday haha!! So yes, all’s going well =) (But I want to go shopping!!)

    What a good boyfriend. Those tulips are lovely.

    Oh, and don’t you just LOVE the inside of Modcloth boxes? Those lavender curly cues make me so happy, and not just because they signify how I’m about to put on a new dress.

    Your new shorts are fantastic! I really love your necklace too. I wish I would’ve bought some stuff during Modcloth’s big sale, but I didn’t get there quick enough!
