Is anyone else as excited as I am whenever there is a Shopbop Spend and Save sale? I’ve been eyeing a Marc Jacobs laptop case to replace my  15″ sleeve which I am currently using to protect my 13″ Macbook – I don’t know why either – and naturally, when you are on the market for one thing online, you end up browsing the entire site for other potential things missing in your life. Of course, I’m talking about this pastel frenzy wishlist which I am completely obsessed with after doing a little bit of window shopping online.

The best sales are always the ones on everything storewide where you can finally pick up pieces you have been eyeing with the satisfaction of a little discount to egg you along your way to check out. And going by the amount of things I currently have my eye on, there might just be more than one thing being checked out with my laptop case tonight!

Spend $250 save 20%. Spend $500 save 25%. Spend $1000 save 30%. Code: BIGEVENT14. Ends 27/2.

Michael Kors Selma in vanilla, pearl grey, red, palm green and navy

If I was to buy on one item this season it’d be the Michael Kors Selma – discovered of course, whilst studying for my Summer exam last week. It’s got the shape and structure of the beautiful Celine tote and the sturdy build of Prada’s saffiano leather but without the price tag that kind of hurts when you’re still a full time student. I can see it as the perfect large bag to accompany my small Louis Vuitton Alma and medium sized Deadly Ponies Mr Pirouette and if I am game enough to trek it all the way to the dusty grounds of Monash, it’d be a pretty handy size for carrying my laptop and other things to class as well.

I’m so close to buying myself one as a late birthday present – my mind is 95% set on navy though I am still in love with the more bright and colourful ones above that I almost feel bad for not choosing something more bright! Which is your favourite?

I’m going off on a bit of a tangent today but I’ve always been meaning to put together some non-outfit posts on my blog which give you more of an insight of what I love. I am not sure if I’ve said so, but I’ve actually been spending this Summer at uni doing a Summer Semester subject which is teaching me everything I’ll (n)ever need to know about starting a civil action. Since my exam is in a few weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of studying and as you know, when you study you tend to spend the majority of your time finding other things to do instead. I’m currently in the middle of getting through a large furniture and interior decorating shopping list. A few weeks ago I put a new queen bed on order (to replace my single bed which according to Google, is a pre-teen size child’s bed..). Ever since, I’ve been looking for all sorts of little things to decorate my place with – inspirational typography and illustrations are currently being favourited on Etsy like no one’s business and I have been spending many a minute sniffing candles in Mecca Cosmetica. So here are some of things which are making me smile at the moment and since I’m in the middle of redoing my place, it’s a mix of both fashion and home pieces. I can’t quite figure out what to tick off my list first but I know that once I start, I’m not going to stop.
