Saturday Savings

Today was all about savings - saving time & money.

My mum kindly drove me to find where my internship is based, to save me time and stress on monday morning! 
The magazine is called Velvet and it's a free, luxury mag based in Newmarket. 
We then headed to Bury St Edmunds for a bit of retail therapy. 

And here are some of my purchases! 
We started off at The Works - if you haven't been it is AMAZING for super cheap books and craft materials. The Dressmaking book is so thick and reduced from £25 to £9.99! A great saving and hopefully something to inspire me to get back into sewing! I also picked up another book for my dissertation (which is a big secret at the moment, I'll tell you all about it soon!) for £3.99! What a bargain!

We then headed to Matalan, where I bought the boyfriend some black trousers for work as his have been worn to death! I also picked up this gorgeous statement silver necklace for £10. I think it's going to be great for updating my trusty LBD, as well as brand new black jumper! 

Lastly, we stopped off at Sainsbury's, and naturally, mother and I had to check out the stationary (we are a bit addicted to should see her study!). I found this cute A5 notepad to use for next term at uni. And, of course, I needed to buy Vogue! LOVE the cover image this month. So sixties!

Easter Treats!!
 Sainsbury's have these Easter goodies on fabulous offers at the moment. Just a heads up! The eggs are 99p each and the animal bunnies are 80-something-pence a box.
