Want, need, wear, read

want need wear read

Want: The second I saw this Alice and Wonderland tea selection from Whittard’s on Pin-up and Tease’s blog, I knew I had to have it. Luckily it was only mere hours til pay day, so my £10.00 set is now on the way!

Need: I’m forever writing shopping lists and throwing the piece of paper in my bag, soon to be lost amongst all of the other crap that’s in there. This cute little shopper pad from Anthropologie should be easy to keep track of. And it’s only £8.00.

Wear: River Island are currently offering students 20% off their stock but there’s only one item I really like the look of – this little black t-shirt. Plus it’s only a bargain £15 anyways, so that might be making its way to me soon too.

Read: Have you heard of the Everyday Sexism Project? It was started by a woman who was sick of the way she (and most other women) was treated by men in her day-to-day life and encouraged women to share their stories. You can find out more here get the book from Waterstones for £14.99.
