How I Spent my Daxon Voucher (plus Easter Nail Art!)

Hello strangers, hope you all had a lovely long Easter weekend and ate double your body weight in chocolate! Before we start with the intended post I'd like to show you the nail art I did over the Easter weekend, which was inspired by Make-Up Savvy's (much neater) version here.
Not going to lie, I'm quite proud of how they turned out! Granted they're not as good as Fee's, but still...
Anyway, I have a relatively overdue post for you lovely lot today. I apologise for my lack of blogging recently, I am midway through tackling my dissertation and other assignments so as you can imagine I am in fact dying a little inside.
You may remember me blogging about the fabulous opportunity to become a part of the Daxon Blogger Network a few months ago (you can find said blog post here).
Well today I am going to show you a couple of things I purchased with my £50 Amazon voucher!
Wooden peep toe platform heels* | Amazon | £17.99 £15.99
I was desperate for some comfortable new black heels, as every pair I own rubs my poor toes to death. Admittedly, these do rub a little but I forgive them just because they are that damned pretty. Love.
Grey Converse All Stars* | Amazon | £34.99 £22.74
I have also been lusting after a pair of converse for so long it's unreal, and I am well and truly in love with these beauties. Although I was originally swooning over a burgundy pair, I am so glad I got these dark grey ones, as the colour is just perfect and goes with more or less everything in my wardrobe. Now I've just been left wondering why it's taken me so damned long to invest in a pair.
I did actually pay around £32.99 for these, but as you can see they have now been reduced by a significant amount so I would snap them up while you can if I were you, bit of a bargain there!
I'd like to say a huge thank you to Daxon for my amazingly generous £50 Amazon voucher. As you can see I did have a little bit of fun spending it, even if it did disappear rather too quickly for my liking.
Did you manage to get your hands on one of the £50 vouchers?
What did you spend it on? I'd love some links so I can have a nosy!

  1. Ahhhh those heels are gorgeous! Absolutely amazing :)
    And agree with the converse - may well have to invest!
    I got the amazon voucher too - spent on kindle books to use whilst travelling and also the box set of Hustle (guilty pleasure!)
