Harry Potter Box Set: The Complete Collection from Amazon, £74.75
I finally understood the hype of Harry Potter after I finished reading the series in 2013. I read the series as ebooks and enjoyed it so much that I needed to purchase hardcover copies. When you buy new books, you never know if they will be a good read or a bad read, so there's always that risk but I know I will want to read the Harry Potter series again at some point. Initially I only wanted the third book because its my favourite, but the new covers for Bloomsbury are stunning overall. I feel that the illustrations reveals spoilers but they are a beau! Time to pass on the magic.
Tartan scarf by River Island, £14
I've wanted a tartan scarf for a long time and now I finally purchase one. I've been seeing tartan scarves literally everywhere. I've been wearing this scarf all the time, its very comfortable and I like how it brightens up my dull black coat. I brought mine for the price tag of £14. I think that was a price mistake because but it is actually £15.
Arrow necklace by Orelia from ASOS, £12
I really have no idea why I like arrow themed things. To me it means moving forward and reminds me of Katniss Everdeen shooting at her target.
Swallow grey sweater by H&M, RRP £6.99
Sequin owl sweater by Topshop, on sale for £20 (RRP £42).
I saw this owl sweatshirt on Polyvore and felt like I needed it. On Christmas Day, Topshop's sale started and I jumped in the chance when I saw that it was on sale. This sweatshirt is so cosy and warm. I really like the embellished owl detail.
Wax jacket in brown by Urban Outfitters Vintage Renewal, on sale for £30 (RRP £65)
As for this wax jacket, me and my friend could not decide whether to get it or not. We spent at least over a hour in Urban Outfitters (so indecisive). I liked it because it reminded me of Barbour (I love Barbour jackets). I know what your thinking... it looks like a farmer's style jacket and I don't usually go for brown. I got it in the end because with my tartan scarf and suede ankle boots that I was wearing at the time, I liked how it looked like I was taking a hike in the countryside.
'Owl Your Bits N Bobs' vintage tin by Sass and Bass from Chickidee, £4
There's this shop called Chickidee and its the cutest homeware and gifts store ever. The style of the items is very 'shabby chic' its so adorable. I remember there was this cute wooden sewing box and looked so nice to have around the house to put all your sewing equipment. If I didn't have self-control, I would have splurged on things I don't need. I love the vintage tins they stock but said to myself that I don't need it, I don't need it. But then the time came to buying gifts for friends and I have a friend who loves all things vintage, so I brought her a tin that says 'Do What You Love Everyday.' I was itching to buy one for myself ever since then and luckily I found an owl one! It was the only one there. I had to get it. I find it useful to put all my receipts and notes, so it isn't clutter :-)
On the back of all the tins, it has 'Sass and Bass' labelled on it, found out it is a brand and I went to visit the store in Covent Garden. Such a cute shop. I just...can't even. I took some sneaky snaps:
It took everything in me not buying that vintage tin of a bird and the cat.
