West Quay Student Sessions

I’m never a girl to pass up a chance to go shopping, especially if that includes discounts. West Quay hosted Student Sessions for all the Southampton students to shop with discounts, dance and win some prizes.

I didn’t really do any damage, I went to my favourite shops as they were more quiet. Jack Wills were giving out free beer which was a great touch, and their staff were very nice. The gentleman that served me in Hotel Chocolat was an actual delight, very charming and friendly.

I wondered around the shops through hoards of people looking for bargains. I cheekily asked the very lovely sales assistant in Fat Face to take a photo of me. Which he kindly obliged.

October Favourites

It’s the end of October already! Halloween has been and gone and it’s nearly Christmas.DSCN0972

Some of these I bought at the end of September and have rediscovered and some are super recent purchases and a gift.

DSCN0970

Mint Fudge Candle – The most sickeningly sweet mint smell that I can’t wait to light over Christmas. Mint is one of my favourite flavours and I snapped with up right away. From Home Sense.

Oola Rose Gold Terrarium – I’ve always wanted a terrarium like this, ideally I want to put a succulent inside but until then I can keep my little collection of glass stones there. From Joy

I’m sure you have seen this little necklace before but I just love wearing it. The gun metal colour the teeny tiny A, it’s just perfect for daily wear. From Fashionology

DSCN0973

How To Be Adored, Caroline Cox – Coffee table books are my favourite type, something to flick through when you have a spare 10 mins. This book is full of great notes and tips. From Joy.

Chinese purse – I was very kindly given this from one of the Chinese girls in my class. I complimented her on her black floral version and when we came back after half term she presented me this gorgeous purse. The pattern is a famous Chinese painting if I remember correctly, red is a lucky colour in China and the knots that keep the purse closed are to protect your money. Never have  I received anything so thoughtful and beautiful, thank you so much sue.

I hope you enjoyed the things I’ve been loving this past month, October has truly been great. Halloween was the perfect end to the month and I really can’t wait to see what November and December have in store for me.

Have a truly great day, Amelia XO
