I haven't actually sat down and properly written a blog post for about two and a half weeks now (The last couple of posts were scheduled a few days in advance). The reason for this is that I moved in to university earlier this month, so I've had to adjust to an entirely different city and being away from home with people I've never met before. I found it quite hard in the first week - I was missing home an awful lot, and I seriously didn't think I'd be able to carry on at university for another 12 weeks.

This post is a little later than planned, but I couldn't not tell you all about this amaaazing bargain from Primark! Originally priced at £13, this adorable embroidered dress was reduced to £7 in the end-of-summer sale. It was the very last one of its style on the rack, and was thankfully in my size. Phew! I very gladly tried it on (just to be on the safe side), and found that it fit beautifully. I emerged from the changing rooms beaming and queued up to pay for my wonderful new dress. When I got to the till, the price was corrected even more and the dress came up as only £3! Bargain or what? I just love it when that happens!

What bargains did you pick up in the end-of-summer sales?

The other day, I had another adventure to M&S with my mum, as it would be our last shopping trip together for a while. We attended this cardholders event where you can go along and watch a style presentation, as well as picking up a glass of Cava and a few nibbles - no Cava for me though, I was the responsible driver! I did, however, manage to find a few surprises that I'd never have thought I could buy from Marks & Spencer - you learn something new every day I guess!

Hey guys, just a quick one today. Since around about the middle of August, there has been a problem with the Disqus comment box on my posts not loading. This meant that any of you that actually wanted to comment on my posts weren't able to :( I'm really sorry about this - I didn't notice this issue until one of my lovely readers brought it to my attention in an email the other day. I've now reverted back to the Blogger comments system, as I just can't seem to get Disqus to work on my blog.

So, I was just writing this post to give you a recap of all the posts that none of you were able to comment on before, so if you have anything to say on any of the posts linked below, please, go ahead!

Steal of the week: jewellery from Matalan.

Results day + why I haven't blogged for a week.

DIY project: geometric animal wall art.

My blog is 1 year old today!

Steal of the week: sale items from H&M.

Songs I've been loving in August.

The British tag.

A bootiful buy.

Current top 5 apps for iPhones.

1. Spotify
I just love playing music from this app while I'm relaxing in bed just before I go to sleep. Also, it's great if you have Premium, as you can download playlists right to your phone to listen to on the go, even when you don't have an Internet connection.

2. Nationwide / Santander / any mobile banking app
Apps like these are really useful for just quickly checking the balance in your bank account, and for making emergency transactions right before a shopping trip!

3. Bloglovin'
I love scrolling through this app first thing when I wake up in the morning. It's a pretty clean design, which makes blog photos pop and really draw you in to read more.

4. Facebook
Recently, I've found myself using the Facebook app a heck of a lot, as it's been helping me find and chat to future flatmates and coursemates before I even start uni. Also, there's usually at least one hilarious video waiting for me on my feed every time I load up the app!

Anything ASOS has to offer, I will most probably love. Having this app means I can keep my saved items list up-to-date, wherever I am. Plus, I can really easily track where my copious orders are up to and when to expect them through my very welcoming letterbox!

What apps have you been loving recently?

My parents accompanied me into town the other day, as we were out gathering the last few bits and pieces that I needed for university. My mum said that she'd buy me a new pair of boots as the weather further up north will be even more rainy than it is where we live, and she wanted me to wear something other than my trusty-but-unfortunately-now-falling-apart-and-not-to-mention-pretty-grubby white converse-style pumps.

I was tagged by the lovely Ashley of Opaque Moonlight to do the British Tag. I'd seen this tag floating around on the internet recently and was planning on doing it anyway (what with being British and all!), but I've actually been personally tagged - yippee for the blogging community! Now, on to the questions…
