Items I'm lusting over.

 Due to being a full time student I don't often have spare income that I can use to buy items that I want rather than need. So to combat these issues I'm a member of quite a few different survey websites, and use these earnings to buy items/cosmetics off of Amazon or Ebay without having to use any of my student loan :) So I thought that I would make a blog post and share with you the items I plan on buying with my next lot of vouchers!

I'm not normally a fan of velvet, especially velvet dresses, as I think too much velvet looks weird, but recently I saw this skirt while on one of my latest Ebay hunts and I instantly fell in love! I love skirts, I have all different styles and colours, so when I saw this I knew I had to add it to my wardrobe. This skirt would look really cute with a white blouse, or if you wanted to really spice up the vintage style it would look gorgeous with a lace top! This seller has the skirt in 8 different colours so it was hard picking which colour I wanted, but in then end I decided on the gorgeous shade of wine red. The skirt is £4.99 and with free postage and packaging it's a complete bargain!

2. Bohemian style red scarf/shawl. £1.57
This item is from the same seller and once I saw it I just had to add it to my wish list! This scarf comes in a range of all different colours, but the red just stood out to me as it's so vibrant and I loved the contrast of the blue tones. I knew that this scarf would go with quite a few items in my wardrobe and would be the perfect accessory! This is even more of a bargain than the last item and for £1.57 and free p&p how could anyone say no?

3. Organic virgin coconut oil. £5.80
Last year I went through a bad break up, and like any other girl I dyed my hair and got a piercing to help me get over the heart break. I dyed my hair red, black and then tried stripping it out when the black dye looked horrendous! Eventually I went to my local hairdressers and had to have my hair bleached a ridiculous amount, and then dyed to go back to my original dark brown. Now as you can imagine my hair is in TERRIBLE condition after all this torture I put it through. I use Aussie shampoo and conditioner which has given my hair a new lease of life, but it's still quite brittle and dry. I heard that coconut oil used as a hot oil treatment does wonders for both repairing damaged hair and promoting hair growth, so I went straight on Amazon to find some! The p&p for this item is free, so I added two pots to my cart for the grand total of £11.60! With both tubs I'll have 500g, which I thought was pretty good value for money rather than buy one big pot on it's own! Once it comes through the post I'll be sure to review it :)

4. Vintage satchel bag. £4.99
I am a HUGE sucker for satchel bags, I think they're so cute and the perfect vintage accessory. I own a couple already but none of them are in the conventional style of this bag, so naturally I jumped at the chance to add it to my wish list! Again, this item comes in a range of different colours, from brown to green, so if you want a bag that will make a statement then this would be perfect! The p&p for this item is £1.29 so it brings the item to a total of £6.28!
