My week - Aussie winning and lust lists

I know I've been so lazy with my blog recently so I thought I'd give you another update on my week.


I'm working away at my new job and still loving it. I'm working with an amazing girl Becky who I discovered also has a blog so you should TOTALLY check her out because she has an AMAZING sense of style. Her blog is By Becky


I was so excited to learn on Thursday that I WON the Aussie Hair AussieMore competition (see my post here for what I did!). I won a £250 gift voucher for ASOS and found out that ASOS were also giving 25% off for students so armed with the boyfriend's student card I bought these 2 dresses


ASOS Midi Dress With Contrast Belt - £45.00

ASOS Midi Fit & Flare Dress with Basqued Waist - £45.00

I love this style of dress, which would be perfect for work and also going out. I'm not sure what else to get with my voucher though - I'm so used to trying not to lust after things since I bought a house! However I think being allowed to buy things at ASOS has caused problems and now I want things all over the place.


Also on my lust list is this dress from ASDA

Belted pleat dress - £20


I also love this jacket from Topshop where I have a £30 voucher left from Christmas!

Asymmetric Belted Jacket - £58.00


Moving in is going well, but slowly. Here's my bedroom at the moment (my hangout! I love my bedroom)

I still haven't found homes for everything, and the spare room is a mess of suitcases and boxes. I also have to get someone to tile the kitchen so we can finish it and decorate the 2nd hallway (which I'm hoping to start tomorrow). Moving is such hard work. I seem to spend my life unpacking, washing up and finding a home for things!


I will try to blog more this week. I have a few ideas so I'm going to try and write them  up when I have time and schedule some posts. I am trying, bear with me and I will get back to normal when I've finished unpacking!


Much love to you all, especially the other Aussie Angels who made me cry with their kind words of support xxx
