JANUARY SALES:: Coupon codes

Hey everyone! I hope you guys had a lovely Christmas with your friends and family, got absolutely stuffed with delicious food and was spoilt royally! No matter where you are on the planet, there will be people queueing up for high street sales hoping to grab everything that they couldn't buy at full retail price. Personally, I try and avoid mad sales as it becomes a war-zone with a  life-or-death situation so I have been doing a little bit of shopping online (hehe!)

I just wanted to drop in a few coupon codes that I have found for shopping online (which make all the difference when you're a student!) . One top tip I would advise before checking out the items in your basket is to google some discount codes - even if it's only 10% off or free delivery, it really does make all the difference! 

Enter 1304 for £5 off your order (£11 min. spend)
Enter 0307 for free delivery (works on sale items too)
They can both be used on the same order!!

Forever 21
Enter HOLIDAY50 for an extra 50% off sale items (ends 31/12/12)
They have a bunch of extra cute accessories on there!

20% off if you're a student studying in the UK and you sign up with UNiDAYS here:
Enter FREE1 for free UK super saver delivery (ends 31/12/12)

Motel Rocks
Enter UNIDAYS for 20% off

Plus your usual student discounts at New Look etc.

Good luck and Happy New Year everyone!
I look forward to seeing you all in 2013!!

ST ALBANS:: Waffle House Date

My boyfriend and I hit the 34 months anniversary line today (woo!) so we chose the waffle house in St Albans (Hertfordshire) for a lunch date as I have this mad sweet tooth problem! I came across some pretty good reviews about the restaurant (food and service-wise) but as it appears to be popular among families, customers only ever complained about noise levels from baby cries and young children. Unfortunately, that is true but we weren't too bothered and I guess it really depends on the time and day you choose to go. Besides, the food and the service totally makes up for anything that might cause you to rate them lower! :)

The restaurant is located on a 16th century watermill so they've done a brilliant job in conserving the vintage feel in a more modern scene. We opted for seating inside as it was quite chilly but outside seating is available underneath the canopy when the weather is not so great (as in our case!). Old photographs and maps of the area and watermill are hung on the walls which I absolutely love!

We ordered waffles because we'd already had a quick bite. If you have a sweet tooth like me or even if you're just in the area, I would definitely recommend dropping by! The waffle itself was not sweet (which makes sense because the toppings were!) and it was so incredibly soft.

How adorable is this cutlery pot?!

See you later waffle house! We'll definitely be coming back for more! ;)
