buy only because something excites you, not just for the simple act of shopping.

Even when I try to stop myself from shopping, I don't think it does much good! I have cut back on my spending habits since 2013 began....but I still seem to have a number of new possessions.

Here are some of the things I have added to my collection lately!

One of my friends actually took me to a flea market not long ago....not somewhere I would normally go. However, there was this really cute stall that had everything pink and sparkly you could imagine! I ended up picking up two pairs of earrings for a really great price.


There was a fantastic sale on Abbey Dawn shoes online, and well, I couldn't resist! I am a huge Avril Lavigne fan. I adore her glam-punk style, and these shoes really reflect that. I ended up with a pair of black skull-studded shoes, red flats with mustaches! on them, and a pair of pink sparkly flats with bow and skull details.




Even though I have more pants than any girl should own, I fell in love with these pastel coloured purple pants from Joe Fresh. I love the pattern, and I think these will be super cute to wear in the Spring.


Lastly, my mom bought me this super cute Betsey Johnson bag. It's a clutch, but doubles as a full-sized purse. It's so cute and super versatile. I love it!


So there you have it, my latest additions!

What have you bought lately?

  47. I think shopping will be the end of all of us :P but like you I am trying to cut down on shopping but have gotten a few things that I didn't need but wanted so bad! Plus there was a great sale and stuff. I want to go to a flea market so bad...and I love what you got! The mustache on the flats are so cute!! :D There is still a lot of months left so I hope to keep a closer eye and tighter grip on my purse! hopefully anyway :)
