Another quick post about some gifts that the boy has treated me to.

He’s such a sweetie and surprised me with one of my ‘Wants this Week’ from a couple of weeks ago. It took a while to be delivered, and I thought I’d figured it out but this arrived the other day and I was really shocked.

I love the cute brown paper bag that it came in!

For a pound extra he was also able to get me a really cool Topshop newspaper and tote bag.

It’s a lot smaller than my usual handbags and I’ve had to filter my junk down by 200%, but it’s totally worth it!

Inside the flap is suede, feels gorgeous.

I’ve also been complaining about how much I need a new diary too, and this arrived in the post the other day. Again, courtesy of my beau.

I’m completely in love with it; it’s really chunky and has a Ted Baker pen with it too. Throughout the diary there are pages with quotes from him about life and fashion and a cute embossed message on the back.

I love the fact that it’s covered in fabric too, means it won’t get battered in my handbag!

He says he’s jealous of all of the beauty boxes I receive and wants me to make a box up for him. Will probably be more of a general box, than beauty as he isn’t very metrosexual when it comes to that kind of stuff! Haha.

Any ideas ladies? I think I owe him big time! ♥

Wants This Week

Going to do a few posts today instead of doing one reeeeally long post.

Here are my Wants This Week, decided that I’d focus on bags – a girl can never have too many bags .. or shoes .. or dresses .. or anything really!

1 – Tapestry Satchel – Matalan - £12
Matalan are having a bit of a revival at the moment, or in my eyes anyway, and this tapestry bag is really cute. I wouldn’t actually BUY it because I carry around my whole life in my handbags and I wouldn’t be able to fit everything in here but it’s still very nice.

2 – Contrast Leather Satchel – Topshop - £75
Dear Topshop, your bags are beautiful but 75% of the time they’re way out of my price range. And this is definitely one of those times. Gorgeous bag, and I’d even be willing to leave some of my junk at home so I could carry it around. But until I’m a graduate earning some big moola (HA!) I can’t sacrifice practicality for a bag that’s out of my price range anyway.
♥ ♥ ♥

3 – Plaited Leather Shopper – Zara - £79.99
This is one is a bit of a cheat because I actually have two of them already. My boy got me the gorgeous tan one, and then got me a grey felt and leather version too. I see them EVERYWHERE though, which is slightly off-putting but alas had made me fall in love with the black one now as well. I know I was just moaning about the price of the satchel, but this bag is amazing – size, quality, looks, its perfection.

4 – Ted Baker 13” PU Sleeve – Ted Baker for Apple - £59.95
Okay technically not a bag, hands up. But it is gorgeous! I’m addicted to my Macbook, and she’d look perfect in one of these. Ted Baker has designed them specifically for Apple so these ones are only available on the Apple website. Admittedly, a bit of a bump at £60 but worthy of my cooing nonetheless!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

And finally ..

5 – Leather Contrast Clutch Bag – Topshop - £32
Another Topshop beauty, but this time slightly more affordable. I love a good clutch bag and this one is amazing. I really like the coral detailing, and it’s got space for your cards, money, phone, whatever, so you can leave that bulky purse at home! 10% off for students as well so I’m very tempted to buy!
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

As usual, if anyone has some cash lying around that they just don’t need then I wouldn’t object to you buying one – or all! – of these for me! Haha :)
