Animal Magic

So last night I had my first night out as a proper member of staff at work! It was leaving do for one of the ladies and we went to an Italian restaurant (a big milestone in itself!)

The dress I wore was an “omg must buy” from River Island. I first saw it on ASOS and was tempted despite the Β£39.99 price tag…
so when I saw ONE left when in town last Saturday, in my size AND in the sale at Β£20 it was like the retail gods had shone down on me.




You have to love when fate steps in like that, right?
