asos haulin' and 25% off code


As asos are having a huge discount weekend with 25% off nearly everything (even the makeup!) I thought I'd show you what I've been hauling recently...


One of my favourite asos purchases of late is this green fox dress.  I love a quirky animal pattern and although this dress is a smock shape which isn't great for me, I made it work by sizing down and wearing it with a belt, cardigan and these new brown knee-high boots.  I have chunky calves so finding knee-high boots to fit is a nightmare, but a for a few years in a row asos have been stocking fairly similar styles with a big stretchy area on the back of the boots, so they pretty much adjust to any size.  I like them so much I may have gone back and bought the black too :) 

I also picked up this furry ears hat for when it's really cold or for if it snows.  If you want to check out just how silly I look wearing it click here.  

The navy sequin dress is what I've ordered to wear to my work Christmas party this Friday.  It's a perfect shape for me - it skims over the bits I want to hide and although I'd prefer the sleeves to show less armpit / bingo wing, I'll just be liberal with the fake tan to give me a bit more confidence.  


Onto the beauty section and I couldn't resist these Christmas jumper nails.  I'm not wearing a Christmas jumper on Christmas day as jumpers don't really look all that flattering on me and I tend to opt for something a bit more sparkly on the big day anyway, but I thought these nails would be a great festive touch.  

As you can see I've also been raiding the Nars section of asos.  I snuck an extra little order in today because of the 25% off code and added to my Nars blush collection with angelika and mata hari.  I also bought Nars sheer glow in santa fe which I've been meaning to try for ages.  


And finally, a few things that aren't for greedy me - I did a last bit of Christmas ordering for my boyfriend and picked up these smart asos trainers.  I like them because they're like a smart/casual shoe and will go with most outfits.  I also got him some new skinny jeans because he managed to get paint on his favourites.  And lastly this Happy Jackson note book which made me laugh - it says "Serious notebook (so people think you know what you're doing)".  

If you fancy hauling up a storm on asos yourself the code you need to get 25% off is 25XMAS and you can use it up until 8am on Monday morning (16 December).
