Topshop gave its staff two vouchers for 30% discount to spend this Christmas. It's only 5% more than the standard staff discount so 'charitable' is hardly the word that springs to mind, however it makes me feel as though I have to make the most of the opportunity. I've picked out the following items as my absolute favourites and I've made up my mind that I simply have to have the skirt, the blouse and the shoes. Unfortunately my store doesn't have the skirt in the colour I want and the blouse and shoes haven't arrived yet as far as I'm aware. The vouchers run out on the 4th December so I haven't got long! I'm just desperately hoping now that they arrive before I go to London for the weekend, although I guess that means I could always raid the Oxford Street megastore if I absolutely can't find them. The shoes are possibly the cutest things I have ever seen in my life.
I'm currently curled up
festering in my bed, feeling like utter shite with streaming eyes, a razorblade throat and oozing, aching sinuses. Luckily my seminar tomorrow has been cancelled as my tutor is opening a conference in Barcelona, so I'll be able to take it easy and have another bed day. It's quite depressing that the rest of the UK has snow and, instead, Manchester opts for minus four temperatures and black ice. What's the weather doing where you are?
