It’s January payday today and boy has it seemed like a lifetime away.

But now it’s here, of course my eyes are on things I can purchase to make my life infinitely better (relax, this is mainly a fantasy thing, my credit card is staying firmly in my wallet for now).

(Mostly).

The bulk of my dream items are from ASOS as is the norm but I’ve tried to branch out a little bit. While I was thinking about this post I kept stumbling across a lot of Valentine’s themed gifts so I’ve incorporated some of those for shits ‘n’ gigs, even though it’s not one of my favourite ‘holidays’.

Still, maybe a secret admirer will click on a couple of these links. You just never know. But to the goodies – what’s floating my boat during these difficult (and wet months)?

Sweet Treats (under £10)

ASOS NO YOU DIDN’T Valentine’s Pom Slippers, ASOS £10 – Comfy and super cute!
The Smiths T-shirt, various sites (around £10) – Hilarious (my example is actually £12.50 from Etsy, but you can shop around for a better deal)
Paperchase Male Torso Cocktail Jar, ASOS £6 – A touching tribute to the male form, and handy too. Especially when you’re trying to drink more water…
Paperchase Valentine’s Lips Money Box, ASOS £6 – For saving pennies to buy all this toot

Think About It Splurges (under £25)

Hattori Hanzo Ladies Regular Black T-shirt, Last Exit to Nowhere £20 (although I had a discount code to save 15% in January) – I can’t gush about LETN enough and buy something from them every year for my beloved. This month it’s my turn, and what better way to start the love affair than with a tribute to my favourite film? – BOUGHT IT!
Suzywan Sweet PomPom Hoop Earrings, ASOS £15 – Lush! I do love a PomPom – BOUGHT THEM!
Woven Tapered Peg Leg Trouser in Mono Stripe Print, ASOS Curve £25 – Smart and funky (like me?)
Brunch Club Sleep Tee, ASOS Curve £18 – I’ve had my eye on this lounging lovely for weeks now… lounge wear is the greatest – BOUGHT IT!

Blair Sweatshirt, Rad £29.90 – Gossip Girl was and is one of my favourite things of all time, as is Blair Waldorf so what better way to represent? Plus: cosy
Plus Size Velvet Ribbed Midi Dress, Missguided Plus £30 – So very pretty
Adidas Originals Pharrell Williams X Todd James Superstar Trainers, ASOS £59.50 – for smashing it at the gym in style. (Honestly though, probably too nice to wear on the treadmill)
Skinnydip ‘Girls’ Heart Across Body Bag, ASOS £28 – possibly my favourite thing on this page – BOUGHT IT!

So that’s me and what’s caught my eye recently online – and yes, I lied above. I’ve already purchased a few of these beauties because I’m totally worth it obviously.

What’re you eyeing? ❤

What I’m Digging: My Internet Wish List

I haven’t done a post like this since January and that’s a bit poor frankly. I’m a great consumer who’s always shopping, usually in the sales and usually within reason, but shopping none the less.

I always have a wish list on the go, even (and especially when) I’m trying to be good. Maybe writing about the things I have my eye on will be enough to satisfy my cravings? Here’s hoping.

Like before I’ve lobbed these beauties into categories. Plus, I’m going to look beyond my ASOS Saved Items list this time, though it will definitely appear because, well, ASOS is life.

Sweet Treats (under £10)

Now all I need is a new job that pays me more so I can treat myself to all these things because I deserve them. Um, I mean, I don’t really need any of these things so I’ll stop thinking about them immediately.

What are you digging this Spring?
