UNiDAYS- Don't have an NUS card but still want student discount? Don't fear!

UNiDAYS is an amazing site I discovered a couple of months ago.
It is associated with most of the main fashion retailers I like to visit and so I use it pretty often.
Basically, if you don't have an NUS card or your university isn't registered with NUS you can use this site in order to still get your student discount! :)

Simply sign up here to get your discounts!
Retailers involved include Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Republic, ASOS, Missguided, Dorothy Perkins, Topman, Accessorize, Cath Kidston, Urban Outfitters, Motel, Office and loads more!

Oh hello ASOS...

So lately due to some annoying personal circumstances I've found myself moping about the house a lot... So naturally my instinct reaction to this is to spend a fortune and try to cheer myself up. It always works, not sure whether that's a good thing or not.
ASOS is just a permanent source of happiness for me and these little gems from the River Island section didn't fail to put a smile on my face!
(HINT: if you like something on the RI website always check ASOS for it before you buy because you can get student discount on ASOS but they don't do it in River Island!)

ASOS, £24.50
I was pining over this cute jumper ages ago in store but I didn't buy it then regretted it when it sold out in my local... only to find it on ASOS and IN THE SALE. Woop! Its so soft and cosy, yet quite delicate, I love it.

ASOS, £20
I just loved the print on this! I also like the fact that the material is quite thick so the risk of it blowing up and exposing my granny pants in this windy British climate is significantly reduced...
ASOS, £20
I just thought this was really versatile, it can be worn casually for a day time look but you can also dress it up with some heels, eyeliner and a skinny belt for going out for drinks. It's really comfortable too!

I should really stop spending money... oh well.

Any excuse to buy clothes

So I'm using this training malarkey as an excuse to go shopping, as if I need one. Recently purchased the following beauties to assist me in my running

Adidas, £22
(Also got this one in pink!)
Very, £45
Adidas, £26
Adidas, £30   
Yeah I like Adidas... plus Nike is too expensive. I have a feeling this buying sportwear thing is going to become a bit of an obsession because in my head I'm thinking 'Well I need it really...'.

Training has begun!

Sorry for the long absence... again.
Last week I signed up to the Cardiff half marathon on October 6th 2013. I know that seems like a long way away but due to the shocking state of my fitness I feel like I'm going to need every second of the 8 months I have to train.
Yesterday was my first outdoor run... ever. And when I say run, I use the term loosely.
According to my Nike+ running app I managed 4.42km in 33.01 minutes. This is not good.
My plan for the next 8 months is to dramatically increase my fitness and turn into a running goddess who finds the 13.1 miles involved in a half marathon a doddle. I actually had a dream last night that I came first and got a special medal. I can dream though right?
I just really wanna do well. I'm quite a competitive person and not performing to the top of my ability does not bode well for me. Another reason I'm so keen to get stuck in is that I'm raising money for Breast Cancer Care (if you'd like to sponsor me please click here), as my mum has suffered from breast cancer twice, and is due to go in for a third operation to fix some complications that occurred last time she was ill.
On the whole I do feel like my training has gotten off to a good start. As well as raising money and boosting my fitness I hope to see a significant change in my body also, as I definitely feel like I've let my figure go slightly over the past couple of years. After weighing on Monday I'm under 10 stone for the first time in 2 years which is just fantastic to see results so quickly! I have been doing some light weight training as well in the hope that I'll be looking like a beach babe with a six pack in the near future... we'll see.
At the moment I'm hobbling around the house in agony as my body just isn't used to actually moving so much throughout the day. I just had to slide down the bannister while dragging my feeble limbs behind me as the stairs were just too much.
Anyway wish me luck with my training! I will try and keep my activities posted here, at the very least it will give me some motivation to continue :)
