Retail therapy

Life during uni gets a bit dull and dreary sometimes, so to counter that, I like to, well, buy things. Sounds terrible, but I stick to inexpensive items so I don't go broke. Online shopping is the best, because you can do it at night after a long evening of studying and you also get kicks out of looking forward to parcels in the mail.


  • Two notebooks from Typo, for uni.
  • White t-shirt from ASOS, because I'm stupid. I am basically never happy with ASOS branded things that aren't accessories, but I get sucked in every time they drop a discount code into my inbox.
  • A new outfit for my phone for $3 from ebay. I like seeing the back of my phone but I hate the sides of clear cases, and it turns out they do make bumpers with a clear back.
  • Dark Angels from Lush, for my skin which has started playing up again.
  • Lord of the Flies, which was seriously depressing. I felt uncomfortable the whole time I was reading it, which is a testament to the writing of course, but I didn't really enjoy that.
  • Socks from ASOS, for the incoming winter. They're from the men's section and are a tad too big, but it turns out they shrink in the wash.
I typed this up while watching the newest episode of Game of Thrones. This show is going to make Mondays bearable for the next two months!

  3. I agree so much, feels so good to buy the little things to make yourself happier when bored of the study-life (yeah it DOES sound kind of terrible doesn't it? haha!). waiting for /receiving packages are so exiting!

    The lord of the flies seems interesting, but I don't think I would like to read it as it's depressing :x

  8. Gorgeous photos makes me happy and your photos makes me happy :)

    I am currently reading Lord of The Flies right now.. It is VERY depressing. However, this books makes you realize how cruel people are in this world. There is that kind of people like that in this world.

  9. The notebook covers are so nice. I like how they are in different styles too because I often end up getting notebooks that look the same in different colors, haha. Lord of the Flies was actaully one of my favorite books in High School. I had to read it for class too but I liked writing papers on it since there was so much to discuss! I have to agree though, a really depressing book.

    I have Game of the Thrones ready for me to watch too! Trying to hold out on it until I finish studying though... :P

  10. I love buying stuff online, although I mostly buy books! I love getting notebooks, but if they look really nice then I won't want to use them haha. c':
    I don't think I'll ever be able to read Lord of the Flies...

  12. The skeleton typo notebook is so appropriate since you're studying med! I know what you mean, sometimes buying new things motivate you, especially in school or uni :) Lord of the Flies was a sad read now that I think about it, I didn't really enjoy it much in year 10 when we were studying it haha.

  13. I don't like the quality of ASOS clothing either, but I am always persuaded to buy something when I am given a discount code. What did you get? Oh that's a great idea! I haven't thought of looking into the men's section for socks. I have tried for jumpers, but even their smallest size wouldn't fit :( How fitting is the skeleton typo notebook to your course! I hope you aren't too caught up in the horrible bipolar weather, take care.

  15. Oh so smitten with Lush cosmetics. And who could ever deny how well retail therapy really works? ;)

  16. God, I'm exactly the same! I think I spend more during semester than I do on holidays, it's terrible. I watched the movie version of Lord of the Flies a few years ago, well, I tried to. I didn't like it, so I'm not sure how I feel about reading the book.

  20. So lovely. I completely agree with you about the retail therapy. Although I hated my years at university so much that my spending got very out of control and I always used that as an excuse!

  26. I love online shopping, especially since they have ridiculous discounts that doesn't apply when you actually enter the stores. I haven't been on a retail therapy trip in sooo long, I can't wait to finish with the mess I got right now and hit the mall asap once it's done!
