Bargain Queen


Oh look at me being a wild child posting on a day other than Sunday!

Okay there is a valid reason for this, and it's that I have a fair amount of posts lined up and I know that if I just keep on posting on Sundays like usual I'll end up posting something that happened months ago which kind of kills the whole point of this blog serving as a diary (of some sort). Plus I'll just end up getting annoyed with myself and delete the ready-made posts because of that reason.

Anyway, before I start rambling let's get onto the topic of this post! I've noticed that there's a lot of negativity going around with all of the stress circulating uni, money and… Christmas! Yes it's the so-called "time to be jolly" but at this rate it really isn't. I swear I'm going to go bankrupt with all of this Christmas shopping and I know that I'm not the only one.

However there is an alternative (especially if you're buying some stuff for a gal friend), and that is bargain hunting! It might sound a bit tacky but go and look at places like Gyaru Sales because getting things second-hand isn't always a bad idea. In fact, most of my gal wardrobe is second-hand! Saves you a lot of money too. 

Speaking of second-hand items, Amelie from Spicy Days have opened up a store called Triangle Future where she sells second-hand items for a really good price. I managed to get four items from her all under £30! Bargain or what? She was also sweet enough to actually message me about the fact that she was selling MA*RS and reserved them for me <3 Plus everything arrived in like, two or three days?! Amazing!

Here are the things I got from her… All MA*RS, of course. 

MA*RS 'bow', garters, skirt and shorts!

Please check out her store here!

I've also found a couple of adorable items all under £20, and have put them all together in the mood board below with a couple of links in case you were interested in purchasing anything yourself. Please note that the links are mostly from the UK so you might have to look elsewhere if you're an international reader.
I guess this is some kind of wish list at the same time? *hint hint wink wink*

So what's on your wishlist this year? 
For me it's just little things like necklaces, skirts and accessories because I'm just so indecisive! Please comment below and spread the Christmas cheer!

  1. Bargain shopping is the best! I'm really bad at buying presents though, since I never know what to get people =[. Luckily, this year I'm in Japan so I don't really have to buy christmas presents for friends and family only souvenirs.
