How I spent my pennies...

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

So I thought id do a little post on how I spent some of my money in Amsterdam..
I tried to not spend alot what with Christmas just around the corner & I have barely started buying presents for everyone. But I couldnt resist buying a few things ...



Van Gogh print of the Almond branch, Leonidas Chocolates Dave brought me back some of these when he was in Amsterdam a month ago and they are the best chocolates Ive ever had. So I just had to buy some more! H&M Pearl necklace.



I definitely have a thing for hearts!! High waisted shorts: H&M, tights: Dorothy Perkins.


Fur Hat: H&M, Velvet Bow waistbelt: Monki, I also managed to pick up a couple of Christmas presents..

Anyone get any exciting plans for the weekend? I'm making a proper start on my Christmas shopping, Ive already ordered candy canes to add as decorative touches to the outside of my presents..I plan on making loads of effort this year! Maybe even making my own xmas cards..if i have time! I also hope to finish my dress that I mentioned in an earlier post here, I just have a few seams to do and take up the hem so hopefully outfit photos will follow soon!

  1. Great idea on ordering the candy canes, I might do the same thing. I had such trouble finding them in the supermarkets last year, I eventually gave up and bought chocolate coins instead!

  13. Ah you have such great taste. I love the shorts and tights - heart print stuff is usually a bit cutesy for my liking but they're both gorgeous.
