September. How did that happen? September means one thing in Glasgow City Centre, que a plethora of Night Club Hoodies and excited young creatures on a mission to get mad wi it before school officially starts – give a warm welcome to The Freshers.

Scotcampus have joined forces with St Enoch Centre in creating an exclusive Freshers’ Festival Shopping Event on the 19th of September, and to celebrate I was given £30 to see how I would spend it. As it  turns out I’ve grown up a fair bit because no, I didn’t go spend the full whack in the Tesco booze isle, seems like my only concern is making sure I’m kept stylishly toastie..

I think you could hazard a guess as to what my favorite shop is within the St Enoch Centre, H&M is my go to, fail safe best pal of stores. From basics to their Trend Range H&M will always guarantee you good quality clothing for a fair price during these skint student times. This season,  texture is massive and I seem to be getting obsessed with it this A/W13! My first purchase was this lovely fluffy jumper, which since buying on Saturday Ive hardly had off (goes perfectly with jammies) at only £9.99 a must have for keeping toasty and touch worthy!

Jumper – H&M £9.99, Topshop Pleather Skirt, Shoes M&S, Necklace £4 H&M

I finished the look off with a little beaded necklace from the sale at just £4, a statement necklace is also something worth a purchase. Worn with shirts or a simple tee it can add a wee bit a glam to any outfit. The second part of the challenge was a little bit difficult when working into a budget, but a secret of Swollocks is always worth a swatch when those purse strings are tight. No I’m not talking sale rack, I’m talking Kids Section.

Jumper – H&M Kids £5.99, Topshop Jeans, Office Shoes

The H&M kids section is where hipster maws go to cluck. It is a haven of kitsch fabrics, cartoon characters and amazing mini versions of key trends. When I saw these two Murkus Lupfer style jumpers in the boys 2-8 years section I was sold – if they fit. I took the pair to the changing room, and with a little sound effect coming from each garment I cheered being thankful for the cropped trend! Putting these on make me so happy, kids sometimes get the best of things, definitely always worth a try – even if you run the risk of the humiliating situation of getting stuck in a Frog print tee shirt….

Fox Jumper £5.99 H&M Kids, H&M Skirt, Clarks Shoes

I had £4 left of my budget and ended up going for a lovely gold eye shadow palette from H&M’s own make up range. This is my first purchase from the collection so looking forward to see how it lasts. I was pretty pleased with all of my purchases, and cant believe i got so much for £30! Although I’ve already got so much wear from my fluffy jumper, the Fox Jumper really does make me so happy to wear – as you can see! What would you buy in St Enoch Centre for £30? Head on down on the 19th of September from 12 – 9 for all the free things a fresher can muster!
