new pieces and a resolution

Hi guys!

New year, new resolutions right? I have made up a plan even before Christmas, here it is: after all of the gift shopping before the holidays i wanted to grab some nice bargains in the after-Christmas sales but I was also aware of the fact that most of my money would be spent for a new mattress as Patrick and I have been getting backache every morning for some months now. I also thought of other (rather pricey) things apart from clothing that have been on my wishlist for so long....
Well, in the end I made the decision to finally grow up and don't spend all my money on clothing and accessories. Okay, I admit I could never live without buying anything pretty that comes my way, BUT for now I don't want to buy clothing, accessories and nail polishes for the next 2 months and then we will see.
So I allowed myself some last shopping with the rest of my Christmas money a few days ago and here is what I got (skip the pics if you're only interested in the resolution):

♥ hosiery: primark ♥ hair clips: claire's ♥

♥ satchel: primark ♥

bag: cyh680000 ebay shop

♥ dress: monki ♥

♥ shirt, cardi + belt: primark ♥

♥ bag, bracelet, hair clips + alice band: monki ♥

There you go, I snatched some nice bargains. I always say I'm a hunter and gatherer ;)

Anyway, it's enough shopping for now. This year I plan an expensive Ireland holiday with Patrick and the other day a friend and me decided to get away from the daily grind by spending some days in Budapest next month. I can't wait to travel more in the future, that's really something I will neglect shopping for!
Furthermore Patrick got some news at work: he works for a German TV station and they will send him to Poland for the European Football Championships for 7 weeks in spring/summer. That's amazing but I will miss him a lot, so I also plan to visit him in Cracow once or twice which will be another expense.
To cut a long story short: no more shopping! The only thing I will do is swapping, but I won't spend money on new stuff.

As a motivation and to keep my objects of desire in mind I wrote down this little reminder wishlist:

a Canon Eos1000D tutorial book
a photography seminar
a big and pretty brown leather camera bag
a tripod
an antique drawer for the bedroom
a smartphone
money for traveling

I'd love to be able to tick off all these things at the end of 2012. We'll see how it works, wish me luck!

What are your resolutions??

Happy Wednesday!
