Indulgence

I was pleasantly surprised today when my friends suggested a spontaneous shopping trip after our lectures finished. As much as I love planning out my days in my beautiful new diary, I love impromptu trips to places even more. We headed into the tiny (and very vacant) shopping centre close to our university expecting nothing more than a few hours of divulging into conversation about the events of the past few days and smooching around the shops.

So you can imagine my surprise when I stumbled across a gorgeous pair of gold hoop earrings with blue beads circling them and turquoise stones embedded within them. The contrast of the different colours and simplicity of the design took my breath away! I expected to pay nothing less than £10 for them but, due to the SALE that Topshop had combined with my student discount, I bought them for £2.25! The picture below does very little justice to the earrings; in direct sunshine the light is scattered from the gems giving the illusion of twinkling stars dancing across the dainty stones. I will be wearing these in the summer with a simple white or baby pink dress to enhance the beauty of the earring.

Another bargain that I couldn't resist purchasing was a faux fur scarf from New Look. The soft texture and the colour sold it to me within seconds of me entering the shop (and the fact that it was £6 instead of £10 didn't hurt either). It is a perfect little accessory to accompany me to my trip to London on the weekend. There is still a piercing coldness in the air but I know that the combination of the faux fur and the quilt detailing inside the scarf will protect me from the frosty conditions. 

What has your most recent bargain been?
