As some of you will know, I got a job the other day! And its dam hard, well the job its self is mind numbingly easy but it’s so painful standing on your feet for 10 hours. The reason I am saying this is because: #1, I am trying to convince myself that my recent shopping habits are reasonable as I deserve something for working so hard. #2, I wanted you all to know that I work hard for my wages despite how awful I am with them! I literally just spend it all! But in the next few weeks I hope to exercise some self-control and the excitement of income will wear off!! Doubtful. Seeing as I have been doing a fair bit of shopping I have three hauls coming up in the near future, however I plan on spreading the out a bit.
This is a bit of shopping I did before my exams as a bit of a pick me up. Again these are a little pricier than what I normally buy because I was in town and there are more second hand shops than opshops so the prices are higher. But I don’t care; I am still in love with all of my purchases.
PAPER BAG PRINCESS – if your form Wellington and you have never visited this shop. Shame on you! Everything is under $20 and there is so much great stuff there. While in the men’s section I came across this transformers t-shirt and couldn’t resist. I love the transformer movies as well as the cartoon that I used to watch when I was little so I could hardly leave it in the store. It was $12.00. While I was there I also got a little grey cardigan for $8.00, which I was super happy to find. I have been looking for a nice grey cardigan for EVER. The one I got turned out to be a wool and cashmere blend so it super soft and snugly.
RECYCLE BOUTIQUE – I picked up this seriously stunning denim shirt from recycle boutique, I have been looking for a nice denim shirt for a while and when I saw this one with tiny little embroidered flowers I knew this was the one. BUT. I am so god dam lazy I could be bothered to try it on and it’s a bit too big. You’d think I would have learnt by now, but no. It’s not too bad though so it wasn’t a waste of money buy I think I am going to try attack it with the sewing machine – wish me luck! The shirt was $20.00. Although recycle boutique is a little more expensive than your typical opshop i never leave with out finding something utterly amazing that you generally don't see in salvation army, its so worth the trip.
Just a heads up, all these prices are in New Zealand Dollars.
