I'm not shopping for the foreseeable future. Thoughts of house buying are occupying my brain. In between bouts of extreme worrying and wondering whether I'm mad to even be considering buying a house on my own and on my wages (there's a whole other blog post waiting to be written about job/life contentment vs money), I'm researching a whole host of money-related stuff and saving even harder than usual.
It's boring and not fun at all. I'm pretty sure I earn less than most of my friends anyway but seeing them merrily buying nice things and planning all sorts of jolly japes that I have to keep saying no to is kinda upsetting. Can't be helped, and in no way do I begrudge them for it, but it still hurts a bit. Ah, to have a month or two where I could just spend whatever the hell I wanted and not have to worry about what else needs to be sacrificed out of the budget to make it doable.
Thinking positive though. Bigger picture and all that jazz. I have my budget and there's very little point comparing it to anything else. Ultimately I want a house of my own more than I want the temporary buzz of buying something pretty. Online window shopping is not the same as actually buying things but it's the best I can do right now and it's still kinda fun!
I don't own any Abigails Party heels - the range of colourways have never quite taken my fancy. The pure orangeness of this pair are rather fun though, aren't they? I like the touch of gingham too. And they'd go very nicely with...
Oh Joules, you and your cute jumpers.
You know I love a good frock. This Dresslily dress has a whole lot going on but it caught my eye anyway.
*shakes fist at Liverpool libraries* Why don't you have Fangirl available yet? Whyyyyyy? Hopefully some Amazon vouchers will be due soon and I can treat myself.
