Yep…it’s D day tomorrow for the land law essay, oh the joy. So today I’m spending the day in the library finishing it and sitting there until it is done. I can think of much better ways to spend a Sunday, lazing around my turquoise leopard print pyjamas in front of the open fire, catching up with Hollyoaks, sipping tea and chatting waffle being just one of many. Land Law (apparently) is the most hated module in a law degree, because it is complex or in other words difficult. The elements are so disparate, hard to link one concept to another - there is old law and new law following reform (reform to make the system easier and fairer – another f**k up by the Government there then, but that’s a whole different topic - and unfortunately it’s a compulsory module in every qualifying law degree (LLB) so I’ve got very little choice other than to take a Nikey approach and
JUST DO IT!
So I’ve gone for casual and comfy today:
Embellished vest from pilot, £5 in the sale, bought from my holiday to Egypt last year and this is only the second time I’ve worn it!
Diesel Jeans £30 from TK MAXX, love these jeans they are so comfy and a bit big now but I’m not giving them up!
Grey Cardigan Primark £10, have lived in this over the winter. When I saw it I bought four of them, one each in grey, black, brown and navy. Was so glad I did because I have absolutely worn them to death. They wash well, can be layered and go with practically anything.
Grey Uggs – I love my uggs. I bought these with my first student loan payment which feels like years ago now (about 18 months). I bought them online using a got a 20% discount code so paid £112 for them. It was a huge amount to spend but if I was to break that down into cost per wear I think they’d be paying me by now! I’ve also got some in black which were a Christmas pressie but they are even more trashed than these ones. I’m thinking of getting a dye and kinda painting over the black ones (with black obviously) but I’ve resisted because I’m unsure how well it would work with them being suede. My mum doesn’t understand uggs, she thinks they are ugly, and I tend to agree with her, they are not the prettiest item of footwear by any stretch of the imagination BUT they are the most comfortable thing I have ever worn on my feet. And it’s well worth investigating in a pair of uggs, I had the imitation ones for years but nothing compares to how these fit and feel.
On a different note entirely having finished the tube of Soap and Glory daily smooth body butter I had to dive into my stash for the next one to use. I picked out a half used 75ml tub of fcuk polished whipped body cream. Oh my god this stuff is gorgeous and smells fabulous. It’s lighter than body butter but feels just as luxurious. I’ve probably only got one more use out of it but I’d certainly consider buying it again in the long distant future when I’ve used up everything else… Mini size, 75ml is £2.25 and 300ml is £5.50, Boots have 1/3 off those prices at the moment, but I don’t need it right now and the offer will come round again. It’s cheaper than Soap and Glory, it feels equally as luxurious and it smells divine so certainly a contender for a future purchase.
Right that essay won’t finish itself so I better grab my coat and be off
I'm a second hand junkie, happiest when I'm rummaging at a carboot, keeping my elbows sharp at a jumble sale or riffling through the rails in a charity shop and if I'm forced to buy on the high street it pains me to pay full price for anything. I'd love to make my own stuff but I'm far too lazy. Have recently discovered a love for baking....who knows what direction this blog will take....
