Christmas wishlist and '100 days no spending' update :)

Hey guys :) I'm eventually back! I've literally had the busiest time ever the last few weeks! I was drowning in uni work that I handed in last week after completing two all-nighters the few nights before which was horrible! I'm so happy all the stress is over though, and now I can get on with getting ready and excited for Christmas! We still have to go into uni for the next few weeks but we're doing pattern cutting and fun things until we get our results. The day after I handed in though, Joe came to visit me which was lovely, and we got on with some Christmas shopping and a few nights out :) below is a picture of me and Joe when he came to visit, and a picture of just how messy my bedroom got during the final week of hand-in! :)







And then the day after Joe left, my mum came to visit me, for catching up and some more Christmas shopping! So I've literally been non-stop busy! Anyways, here is a wishlist of some things I would like from Santa, or things I would've probably have already bought if I wasn't on my spending ban! For any of you wondering, I'm almost half-way, I have 53 days left to go!




The slipper shoes with cross embellishment are from Office, and they're so cute! :)


I need to get myself some sort of black hat for Winter and uni, and I really like this ying yang one from Waiste Clothing :)


How cute are these Urban Outfitters pumps with panther heels?!


I think I may be the only blogger to not own any Yankee Candles, and I really want one! I always smell them when I'm out and about, and there are some gorgeous flavours. I love the thought that once I've used it all up I can keep it as a little desk jar to put bits and bobs in too :)


At £70, I doubt I will ever end up getting this particular coat from River Island, but I'm on the look-out for a dupe, and it would go so well with my fur stole :)


I love this Topman burgundy shirt. I always steal my boyfriends checkered shirts, and I am on the look-out for a burgundy checkered shirt, but this one looks lovely and I need some more plain clothes to layer up over Winter! This would look nice buttoned up all the way to the top with a spiked necklace under the collar :)




I know everyone already has them, but I have a sudden urge to get some sensible warm shoes, and Nike Blazers would be perfect! I think a black pair would literally just go with everything too :)



I love love love this belt! This one is from Ark Clothing but I've seen them in Urban Outfitters too :)

Lastly, I have a little confession to make... sort of. I went to town with my housemate Clementine today to get some thread for finishing off my coat on Monday, and we ended up looking around some charity shops. I  bought these two shirts and this glass ring holder. I know this technically counts as breaking my spending ban BUT I thought I really liked them, and the shirts were only £2.50 each, and the ring holder was only 99p, so I bought them, but I don't intend to use them until I've finished my spending ban in January! How cute are they all!? :)


Thanks for reading :)
What's on your Christmas wishlist?
I cannot wait to get all festive this month!
Love Dani :)

    1. Haha as long as they're kept hidden in my cupboard until the end of the ban I think I'll let this one slip :)

  4. I don't think I could do a spending ban on charity shops. If you see something on the high street you like you'll probably still be able to get it after the ban but if its something in a charity shop I'd worry it wouldn't be there. I love what you got by the way xxx

    1. Yeah I think it's impossible to do a ban on charity shopping as it's a 'buy it now or never see it again' situation, but up til now I haven't actually been into any charity shops!
      Thank you :)

  6. Found you on the #lbloggers chat tonight and so glad I did. Your spending ban is inspirational and something I should really think about. I spend far too easily because I can't turn down a bargain. I don't think you would count this as breaking your ban, it was such a good buy and a fraction of what you would have spent.

    Huge well done to you!

  7. The mint green shirt on the right is such a lovely shade of pastel! :-)

    I'm incredibly impressed that you have managed 53 days without spending, crazily so in fact as I don't think I could ever manage that. But maybe I should take inspiration from you and try something similar!

  15. Absolutely love those UO pumps! I agree with the other comments, charity shop spending is definitely the exception to the 'no spending' rule - so you can keep your conscience clear :)
