As those of you in the UK may know, yesterday was the glorious day that is known as pay-day. After starting my new job around 5 weeks ago, and spending the last 3 years as a penniless student, it would be a huge understatement to say I was a tad excited to finally get to this day.
For working hard this month, I decided it was only fair to treat myself to a few new bits and pieces (along with one or two drinks Friday evening... Would be rude to turn down 2 for 1 cocktails surely?!).
So this relaxed, and maybe slightly hungover, Saturday was spent browsing various shop's websites and finally being able to make a few of the purchases that have been sat in my online baskets for some time now.
A little sneak peak at a few of the purchases
After being a student for such a long time I'll admit I found it a little hard to treat myself to these things. Three years of counting every penny has clearly had an effect (I wonder if I'm the only student/graduate to feel this way?) but I told myself to click the "check-out" button as I know I'll be super excited when the packages arrive next week.
I definitely didn't go crazy - just a few items and maybe a small gift for a certain boyfriend, sssh - but it felt amazing to spend a few pennies that I worked hard to earn, and it made all those long hours in the office worth wile.
When the items are all delivered I've decided to possibly put together my first haul post. I personally love hauls as it gives new ideas on clothing, accessories and products. However, even from just writing this post, I can see why so many bloggers state that they're in no way showing off when talking about their purchases... It's hard not to feel like you're showing off slightly... But I can promise showing off is definitely not something I would do, and I'm excited by the thought of putting together a haul post.
If you have any tips about writing a haul I'd love to know - this newbie is still finding her feet in the blogging world!
