I've got you stuck on my body like a tattoo

When the local shopping centre offers a student 'Lock In,' (where, effectively, the students are let loose in a shopping center after hours and offered crazy discounts, even on sale items) you don't go 'no I'm cool, thanks.' You grab the chance! I was suitably held back due to guilt at the fact I've barely been a student 3 weeks and I'm already buying 'non essentials.' I didn't even end up getting a clothes! Shock. Horror.

Here is what I did get:

Makeup/beauty Items:
Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover
I'd run out of nail polish remover so this was, in my mind, essential. As you can see in the photo above, my nail polish was getting SO chipped!

Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades in Blushalicious
I've wanted one of these for ages, but never got around to buying one. I love the versatility of it, four different shades which can be used individually or swirled together and the price. It was purse friendly even before the student discount!

MUA The Artiste Collection
6 marble effect eyeshadows, two blushes, a bronzer and a highlight shade all in a neat little palette for only £8. Absolute bargain. I love MUA's palette's (Heaven and Earth being my favourite) so I needed this as soon as I saw MUA's tweets about it! Oh and did I mention that student discount? *Winks*

Superdrug's Dry Shampoo
Oh so, I don't mean to rub it in, but being a penny pinching student CAN have its benefits, events like these, for example, which not only give you crazy discount, but also free gifts! This was what this dry shampoo was, upon my purchase of the other three items. It will be useful for those in between washes, days and for when I want a bit of vavavoom on a night out!

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
A cult classic, hard hitting, twisted, yet beautiful work of art (according to internet sources). Could this be possible? I wanted to find out and picked up the book after hearing the name so many times on the blogosphere.

A Storm of Swords 1: Steel and Snow by George R R Martin
My boyfriend and I are both really into the Game of Throne books/series (well, lets face it, who isn't?!) I'm on the third book after finishing the second one months ago and never getting around to buying the third. Can't tell you I'm not excited to throw myself back into Westeros- WINTER IS COMING.

Oh, I also bought an Italian Dictionary, just to put my guilt to bed!
