After saving all my pennies for New York I was beginning to get the shakes from being on a spending ban so when I recieved a little bit of money via eBay I decided to throw caution to the wind and persue the Asos sale. I was very restrained and only came away with this gorgeous skirt and this non-sale basic cami. I could have spent a small fortuine but decided to have my sensible head on for one. What's happened to me?! I do tend to think Asos skirts are a tad overpriced so only really buy them in the sale. I don't mind spending £45 on a dress but on a skirt? No thanks. I thought the skirt would be a cotton material but it's more like a thick jersey material so it feels quite heavy. I'm hoping the dreaded bobbles won't come too soon.

This weekend has been spent recovering from Newmarket on Friday - the day was absolutely brilliant! I never knew just how much I enjoyed inflicting my god awful singing on people via Karaoke. I'm proud to say I was a bit of a hogger and belted out the Spice Girls complete with the dance moves. I don't think my mother has ever been prouder.

Have you brought any bargains in the Asos sale?
