i just shop for shopping's sake.

Yesterday, I did a bit more Christmas shopping. I am really trying to get things done whenever I have free time, because I seem to have so little of it lately. My mom and I went shopping at this massive mall - it took us like six hours to get through it all! It was a long, but good day. I only have a few more gifts to buy people for Christmas!

One of the downsides of Christmas shopping, is that I tend to pick up things for myself as well. It's terrible! Here is what I ended up buying:

This is a really beautiful long-sleeved lace top from French Connection. Definitely a pretty and versatile piece! I just love it! It is actually a deep green colour, but looks more blue when photographed.

I also picked up a couple of really cute t-shirts from Armani Exchange. They are simple, but lovely! Definitely perfect for a casual outfit!

My addiction to anything leopard print is insane. This skirt is so pretty though, and was on sale! Even better! It has these cute drapey pockets on the sides, which I quite like! Can't wait to wear this!

I have this obsession with cartoon frogs - I don't know where it started, I just always have. So, when I saw this adorable hoodie and I just had to get it! So cute, right?

And lastly, the item I totally splurged on....


A pair of Betsey Johnson heels! They are PERFECT. Pale pink suede with white lace lining.....I saw them and knew that despite all logic or reason, I had to have them. Perhaps I should regret buying them, but they are so gorgeous, that I can't! I am in love!

What have you bought recently?
