Hello 2013! My January sale finds and my New Years Resolutions :)

Happy new years guys! I can't actually believe it is 2013, this year has literally gone so quickly! :) Hope you all had a fun night last night with the ones you love! Here's a picture of me and Joe last night with his new fisheye lens :)

I went sale shopping on Boxing Day (yes I was one of THOSE people) but it was the first time in five years where I wasn't working on Boxing Day, so I thought why not?! I'm still doing my 100 days no spending (it finishes on 24th January) but these things were bought with Christmas money or vouchers!

I love having new DVDs to watch, especially around Christmas time and when I'm with my boyfriend (we don't see each other much as we're 2 and a half hours away from each other when I'm at uni). I got all these bargains for £3 each, and the behind the scenes The Hobbit book was for Joe as he's obsessed! We watch Babe the other night, and I forgot how friggin cute it is! I suggest you all go get it, and relive your childhood :)

Topshop crochet shirt - £16.20 in the sale with student discount.
Topshop  crochet shorts - £18 in the sale with student discount.

Topshop frilled socks - All 3 pairs for £7.20 with student discount.
Topshop cherub earrings - £2.90 in the sale with student discount.
Topshop buddha earrings - £1.35 in the sale with student discount.

Topshop cross studded shorts - £16.20 in the sale with student discount.
Topshop burgundy rose hairband (I put it around my hair doughnut)  - £2.90 in the sale with student discount.

New Look peplum tops in black and burgundy - £7.00 each in the sale.

Primark embellished high waisted shorts - £7.00 in the sale.
Primark cordroy burgundy shirt (I kept stealing Joe's one) - £5.00 in the sale.

Matching hamsa hand t-shirts for me and my sister - £7.00 each in the sale.

And a few bits for Joe as he had to work on Boxing Day!
Primark speckled beanie hats - £3.00 each.
River Island paisley boxers - £7.00 in the sale.

Now onto the New Years Resolutions:

- Lose some weight and eat healthily.
No more sugar or sweets, a lot less pasta and bread.
Buy more fruit, vegetables and salads.
Do exercise DVDs when I have time.
Fit back into my favourite shorts again!

- Save money.
I finish my 100 days no spending on 24th Jan, but continue after unless I literally LOVE something.
No more eating out with my friends.
Start making packed lunches every day for uni.
Actually put money aside every week so I can see it being saved.
Enter more competitions everyday. (I have been lucky enough to win quite a few recently, will make a blog post about my years winnings!)
Every time I have a £2 coin, put it in my terramundi pot!

- Blog more.
Do more eBay finds posts.
Do my favouries of each month.
Do lots of outfit posts once I'm happier with my weight.
Use up products before starting a new one, and do empties posts.
Read my favourite blogs every single day.
Set up my 300 followers giveaway!

- Concentrate more on my uni work.
Don't watch TV/movies until I've done my uni work.
Do at least a full hours work after uni everyday.
Consider getting rid of Facebook until the Summer.
Visit the library more often.
Try out new techniques once a week.
Read my fashion books.
Go to more exhibitions.
Save up for Photoshop and Illustrator.
Practice my fashion illustration in my spare time.

- Beauty resolutions.
Take my make up off every single night.
Stick to my cleanse, tone, moisture regime.
Have at least one early night a week.
Always have nice nails, if not take the varnish off. 
Only straighten my hair when it is necessary.
