What to do with £30?

So I got £30 from my grandma for Christmas. Whenever I get money as a present, I never spend it on specific things. I just use it as my own money. For once, I would like to use some gift money on something specific for myself that I can say, I got that from my grandma. 
 
So what to do with £30? A few ideas I came up with:
 
A Topshop bag, £30

DVD’s I’ve been after for awhile from Amazon, add up to £30 including shipping.

A bangle that I featured on my Random Quirks blog here and some more nail varnish (I may be addicted!)

Or I could nerd out and get these. A hogwarts letter necklace and a hufflepuff prefect badge from etsy.

I am a Hufflepuff (and proud) and was annoyed that they only sold Gryffindor and Slytherin Prefect badges at the WWOHP. I was a prefect at school so I really wanted one of these. 
 
I’m not sure what to pick. It’s either one of these options, or I just see what I like the look of when I go shopping with my mum on saturday. What do you think?

One day I will own: A Mulberry bag

The Mulberry bag is my ultimate. The kind of bag I desperately want, but can’t really justify spending the amount of money I would normally spend on a holiday or at least 3 months rent (and my rent is cheap!). I can dream though.

This lovely is £795. I will know I’m rich when I do eventually buy one. 
 
For now, I will have to make do with my River Island satchel. I do love it though. Only £35!

Outfit post: New Year’s Eve

I had a lovely chilled New Year’s Eve this year. Just hung out with the bf and our friend playing board games and Just Dance, watching the live Kasabian concert and eating mexican food. Even popped some Bucks Fizz at midnight (£2.29 in Sainsburys – bargain!) Here is what I wore:

Necklace: Etsy – can’t remember the exact shop
Belt: River Island (christmas present!)
Tights: Primark I think?
 
I did wear shoes – just took these pics before I put them on. They were my black suede lace up wedges from New Look.

Hairband: Primark
Dress: New Look
Necklace: Accessorize
Ring: Accessorize
Tights: Primark
Shoes: New Look (random fact – they are called Past. I used to work on the shoe department up until a couple of months ago!)
Nails: Models Own – Juicy Jules
I love the print on this dress! And the sparklyness of my nail varnish appeals to my magpie within. I definitely recommend it – just be sure to give it at least a couple of coats. The necklace I originally saw on Charlene from Dainty Dresses. As soon as I saw it I had to have it.
