My names Lowri, and I'm a shopoholic / What I bought


I really am a shopoholic.. If I'm not actually buying, I'm looking everywhere for what to buy; magazines, blogs, people on the street.. everywhere there are inspirations enticing me to spend more and more money. I'm CRAP with my money.. payday comes and money goes almost instantly! If I really want something I will do anything to get it.. that's why I have 4 completely maxed out store cards and one maxed out credit card! Most people think it's silly to have store cards etc, but I cannot live without them (or so it feels). My mother once offered to pay off all my debts if I cut up my cards.. but for me that wasn't a very good deal! I know how stupid that sounds.. I wanted her to pay off my debt, so I'd have like an extra 2000 to blow on clothes, but cutting them up just wasn't gonna happen. The thought of not having them to rely on when I'm skint, and possibly missing out on the perfect item of clothing is something I cannot bare!

Retail therapy really is the best! So Payday was on Friday.. this is what I bought. I restrained myself from buying a LOT, I really am trying to keep spending to an absolute minimum!

Firstly it was love at first sight with the most amazing cardigan.. Its so so beautiful! BUT I took a picture and it really doesn't do it justice.. I want to show you all this cardigan in an outfit post.. so check back for that!

Topshop: £28
Love this blouse.. love the not so ordinary Peter Pan collar! 

Topshop: £24??
I've been lusting over this little beauty for what seems like forever.. but could never justify the spend as everytime I tried it on it looked just bleugh on me... BUT I tried it on with my vintage Levis.. miraculously it was transformed from bleugh to beaut! 

New Look £22??

These haven't photographed very well at all.. the blue is amazingly bright in real life.. maybe coz its dark outside, and my bedroom is pretty dark so the flash must have distorted the colour a tad! But anyway these look lush on, and are proper summery! Cant wait to wear them! Oh and soz for not remembering the exact price of everything.. the clothes are like 2 feet away from me, so I could go check the price, but I CBA :) 

Hope y'all have had a good weekend so far... :) and thanks for reading, and soz I ramble a lot haha!
