Is it me or has August seemed to have dragged on and on and on? I honestly have never ever been so excited to see a payday, even though I've been quite sensible with my money this month... actually I just remembered I had a £190 car bill for Charles so thats why I've been good. As i'm going to Manchester at the end of September I'm trying to save as much money for that so I'm trying to keep spending to a minimum, however I never ever not need an excuse not to spend money so this is what I've got my eyes on this month.
 
I briefly mentioned the By Malene Birger dress in a recent post and I'm hoping as the Durham Van Mildert doesn't have it in, the Metro Centre store will. Its a fab breton stripe dress which you can dress up or down and will take you through the seasons. Next up is the Lavish Alice jumper- as Summer has completely failed us I'm starting to look focus more on knitwear than summer clothing and I need this stud jumper in my life asap. This will be getting ordered using the discount code from the #LeedsBloggerMeetUp2012.
 
As Laura's birthday is coming up shortly I need an outfit for her night out- apparently we're being posh and having food and cocktails near to where she lives. However as I know Laura I can tell you now its going to end up being a messy night. After wearing my Zara scarf print shorts the other week when I was out, I've now decided I want some more pairs in my wardrobe and I can't decide between the two pairs from Topshop- I'm really vering towards the firework shorts however sometimes what looks nice on the website may not translate to that when you see it in the flesh.
 
I thought I would save the best til last and I think I have found the perfect handbag which I want to buy when I go to Manchester. Just marvel in the beauty of this little Vivienne Westwood number... its a beauty. I was debating whether to buy a pair of designer shoes while I was away however considering I can't look after the shoes I currently own I think a handbag is the wiser investment.
 
What are you wanting to splurge on this month?
