Small treats

I have a thing about revision. Basically, I hate it. One of the things I do to cheer myself up when required to do revision is dress up. After all, it's not like anyone is going to make fun of me for being overdressed, because nobody is going to see me.

I bought this dress a while ago and wore it for formal dinners mostly. Today I realised that there was no reason why I should not wear it on an ordinary day.

There are two things I like about this dress: a) the skirt is very poofy, and b) it has POCKETS. Excellent.

Cardigan - Topshop; dress - MNG; tights - don't remember; shoes - F-Troupe; new bag! - charity shop

But I lied a bit about nobody seeing me. The other thing I do when I am revising is promise myself treats. The treat I had today was a wander around the charity shops in between intervals of work. And one of these charity shops is where I got the bag!

I picked it up because I don't have any small bags and it was cute and only cost £5, but I had a feeling I'd seen the name on the tag before ....

Sure enough, it is available at Fair kaeuflich DE.

How much for, you ask?

114 euros.

I'm not quite as tenacious a bargain-hunter as Sue, but I can't deny that gave me a moment of satisfaction.

And it's the perfect size for my mobile phone, wallet and a paperback book. Now if only my exams were past so that I could return to the days when those three things were all I needed to carry!
