The devil makes work for idle hands

I’ve decided that working full-time is healthy for my bank balance. And not for the obvious reason of more hours = more money. But because I’m usually too knackered to trek around the shops after work, and too lazy to trawl through pages and pages of online fashion. I think my folks have been impressed with the lack of parcels gracing our front door.

Then my contract at work ended... *cue shopping marathon*


An ASOS sale purchase - this satchel should hopefully 
add a pop of colour into my (mainly black) wardrobe!


H&M sleeveless white shirt


 H&M mocha chunky knit - which looks very Alexa 
Chung with the shirt collar poking out underneath



Not one but two pairs of H&M denim shorts 
- they fit so well, I couldn't resist!



You can never have too much denim!


+ a free H&M gift card that I was handed by a member of H&M staff
... which I exchanged for these:


A lint remover - which is clearly being put to good use(!)
And stockings... you can never go wrong with stockings!

In good news: I got a new job! I’m now working in publishing / the media and hopefully will get to do some geeky IT stuff *rubs hands together*

Had a week free before my start date so took off for a few days – why not? Found me a last minute deal and hurriedly threw some things into packed a suitcase. Holiday summary to follow! x x
