Teeny Tiny Haul (HMV, Accessorize & New Look)

I did a little bit of last-minute school uniform shopping yesterday in preparation for my first day back today. Normally it wouldn't be left this late but for some reason I just fell behind this year and failed to get a bag until the day before I go back. Ain't that just great? ;P Yesterday I went out for a couple hours with my mum to get my school bag and while I was there I did a little bit of shopping for myself. I love everything I got so I thought it'd be nice to show you. ^_^

After a bit of searching I found the perfect bag for school in Accessorize. I wanted a kind of satchel in a neutral colour that could fit all of my school work, so I was really happy when I found this one for £32. It's not the cheapest but I've had a few bags from Accessorize before and they are amazing quality. My school bag a couple of years ago was from there and I loved it so I knew this one was worth the money. :) 

I'm not the biggest shoe-fan ever - I can't stand shoe shopping, I can't walk in heels and I pretty much live in ankle boots - but when I'm out I keep an eye out for a nice pair of flats for when I don't want to wear boots or Converse. When I was looking through the sales in New Look I saw these adorable dark pink, spotty flats for only £6 and they were in my size (I'm a 4 which is quite hard to find for some reason) so I did a little happy dance and bought them. £6 for a pair of flats is pretty great and I know that New Look shoes are really good quality as I get a lot of ankle boots from there. They seem comfy so far and I can't wait to wear them somewhere nice. ^_^

The last place we went was HMV aka. heaven. I've found some amazing new bands recently and I wanted to get some more of their music, so naturally I went to HMV. I know a lot of people don't buy CDs now and do it all digitally but I personally love actual physical CDs so I buy them as much as I can. HMV is going out of business so I make a real effort to buy from them when I want a new album. When I went in I had a list on my phone of about 10 bands I wanted to look for but the range was kinda crappy so I only found a few, and due to a lack of money I could only afford one. Luckily it was the one CD I wanted the most: Free by Twin Atlantic. Twin Atlantic are amazing and Scottish and passionate and asdfghjkl I just love them. Free was only £5.99 as well which is awesome. 

Lots of love, Cat
