Hey guys! I hope you're all having a fantastic week!
As you all know, I have been working as an intern this week at Reveal magazine, which has been amazing so far! I have had the opportunity to transcribe celebrity interviews and contribute to the magazine as well, though I'll be on holiday when the issue comes out. I will make sure to write a more detailed account of my time when I get back from holiday.
As part of the fashion vouchers competition, I wanted to show you guys some of the websites I use for discounted, money saving fashion! You do not always have to dig deep into your pockets when it comes to staying on trend; there are so many amazing fashion outlets that sell affordable goodies for us fashionista's!
I have been an avid ASOS fan since I can remember. I first discovered it in 2009 when I was looking for a dress for prom and I haven't looked back since! ASOS is always on trend and deliver us with the latest designs and fashion trendy gems through their own branded goodies. ASOS also have discounted brands like Lipsy and American Apparel whilst also recently providing us with highstreet favourites New Look and now Primark! ASOS also frequently have great student discounts up to 25% off whilst also having general sales throughout the year. I cannot recommend this website enough. The clothing from here is also of great quality and you get what you see through their break-through video catwalks that are provided with most item viewings. They also provide free worldwide shipping and you also have the choice of purchasing a yearly ASOS premiere account at the bargain price of £9.95. This includes free next day delivery, ASOS magazine subscription, free returns and VIP discounts!
Recent best purchases: Cath Kidston Make up Roll £17.50, ASOS jet pockets trousers £15, ASOS nude heels £12.

As you all know, I always rave about boohoo.com. Not only do they provide trendy clothing and accessories, they also frequently provide discount codes. Their discount codes are also viable for sale items! - Bonus! Boohoo also have a range of sizes at a usually low price. Their maxi dresses and aztec prints are second to none and are a definite must have for any fashion savvy person! I particularly love that they have a 'back in stock' section so you can see if your favourite item has made a comeback!
Recent best purchases: Monochrome illusion dress £15, Purple racerback maxi dress £12, Lace panel denim shorts, block heel ankle boots £18.
Check out boohoo.com
I couldn't have a money-saving list without including ebay.co.uk. The main reason I love ebay so much is the fact that you can search for items that you missed in any given store and you most likely will find it here on ebay! You can also find great bargains from sellers selling designer brands. There are also a range of sellers on ebay that sell trendy gems at a discounted rate.
Recent best purchases: Fedora hat £2.18, River Island Lime crop top £10.50, Polka dot blouse £7.

New look is one of those places that you just can't help but go back to! Not only are they always up-to-date with the latest fashion, they provide yearly student discounts and free delivery to store on items over £20. I love the Kelly Brook collection and featured one of her dresses in an earlier post. I also shop at New Look for cami vest tops and basics like that - I find it is amazing quality at a reasonable price!
Best recent purchases: Kelly Brook Navy floral pencil dress £14, Lace peter pan collar top £7, Floral monochrome crop top £5, Monochrome aztec crop top £7.99, Pink aztec crop top £7.99.
Check out newlook.com.
The thing I love about H&M is that they always have sales! You can catch so many gems in H&M. They have a fantastic range of formal wear for work - which I also featured in my PR interview post. H&M provide me with the best blazers and shirts at a discounted price while also delivering good quality. I especially adore the jewellery range at H&M, there's always a necklace I want when I go on their website or pop in-store!
Best recent purchases: Navy blazer £15, Khaki lace back dress £7, Spike necklace (2 in 1) £6.99, Beyonce at H&M bikini £16 (garments sold separately).

For years, Primark has delivered affordable goodies whether it's clothes, accessories or shoes, but I feel now Primark is better than ever. The quality of their products have seriously increased and everyone wants a piece of Primark! I love the dresses at Primark especially - I cannot leave Primark without purchasing at least one! Primark is probably at the top of my list when it comes to money saving, so if you haven't been to Primark before, I suggest you get your skates on and head over there!
Best recent purchases: Mint green lace dress £13, Cream blouse £9, Monochrome lace panel dress £13, Lace peplum top £6, Gym shorts £3, Denim w/ lace dress £16, Coral textured dress £13.
You can check out their website here: http://www.primark.co.uk/.
