August expectations

1 August 2009

The long month of July is finally over, perhaps slightly too quickly for my liking, but now it's time for my favourite month of the year. Now my wages have come in, here's some things I'm hoping to come across:

Some new clothes of course. Am hoping to venture into H&M for the first time in a while to see if any of the nice Autumn Winter stuff I've seen on t'internet has actually materialised, and to visit some of the shops near where my placement is. Plus Schwing Schwing's prices are too hard to resist. I must stress, I would not be wearing the mesh bodysuit in this way.

In order to justify my spending, I am going to try and get rid of things I own, when buying something new. I'm considering starting a selling blog, as there are some things that seem to get lost in translation in the world of eBay. Would any of you be interested? Everything would be seriously cheap. If not, we shall never speak of this again.

I need some new music too, to keep my iPod nice and fresh. I posted about La Roux here, but still only have a few songs from her album, so am aiming to download a few more. Also want to get my hands on Florence and the Machine and Friendly Fires; there's a few songs by them that have been stuck in my head for a while.

It's time to read a book; I'm gonna jump on the Twilight bandwagon to get myself started.

Sims 3. Nuff said. EA takes yet more of my money.

Need to sort out something to make me forget it's my 22nd birthday in a few weeks. Perhaps Brighton again if the weather's decent, a London restaurant if it's not. Also need to save for potential city breaks to visit friends on various placements in Milan and Belgium and of course New York in January. What are your plans for August? Anyone else have a birthday coming up? Leos unite!

My competition ends in less than a week! Be sure to enter to win one of two My Name Necklaces.

  1. Hehe I jumped on the Twilight bandwagon too. The first book seems a little too slow-moving and melancholy for my liking, but the series does get better.

  2. I hope H&M in Bristol answer my prayers and start stocking some decent clothes for once!

  3. oh, and totally go for the selling!

  4. I haven't been to H&M in forever! Definitely need to make a trip...

  5. lol i used to be addicted to the sims until i finally managed to wean myself off. i dont trust myself enough to get sims 3... ;)

  6. I am really excited for the new season, on a personal level as well on in terms of style - then again, they go hand in hand..

  7. Ahh, love that shiny black bodysuit, and the mesh one too. I have such a Thing for one pieces, hope you get a few! x

  11. I'm jealous that you have a dress form...


  12. I can think of so many ways to wear that amazing bodysuit :)

    Promise you'll post pics of it when you buy it!

    I love reading your blog and if you would like to do link exchange just let me know!


  13. I really want to go into H&M now.
    Jumped on the Twilight bandwagon ages ago, it's so addictive! Also, the Florence + the machine album is absolutely amazing, ensure you get it. Friendly Fires is also one of my faves, Whereas I prefer La Roux remixed, her on her own slightly hurts my head!

  14. the clothes in those first two images, are amazing!
    where are they from?
    also do start up a selling blog, i'd love to browse and possibly buy.


  15. I looove Friendly Fires, Florence AND La Roux, great choices haha we have similar taste!
    Is Sims 3 any good?
    Its quite expensive so I am not sure if it is worth buying lol
