My Urban Outfitters Freshers Shopping

Tis the season to go to uni! And I am doing my shopping as I'm sure many of you also have. I got a little distracted when I started to look at coats, but then I stumbled across Urban Outfitters Homeware section... oh em gee. So much love. Think I may be willing to give up some alcoholic beverages for these things (don't worry, I'm living in the area of deals like '3 treble vodkas for £5', I will only be doing my liver a favour!!)

Its really hard to choose from their amazing selection, but I've put together a number of my favourite items. Now just imagine your dull University Halls accommodation accessorised with these things...!

Curing your Freshers hangover with a cuppa? Not sure the bright colours will sooth your pounding head, but how amazing is this mug?! Takes me back to my childhood!

Alternatively, this one made me lol!

If you're not lucky enough to live right by your lecture hall, save your pennies and rather than buying food, take a packed lunch with you in this super cool lunchbox

Use this when chopping up your ingredients for a very posh meal.... Or, more realistically, cutting your microwave pizza on..! I'm sensing a retro theme for the food items? Please don't take that so far as to start eating Spam though...It may be good for your bank balance but eeww!!

If you're popping over to somebody else's flat for pre-drinks don't worry about bringing a bottle opener; keep it with you at all times with this clever one you can keep with your real keys!!

Any science students out there? Release your inner-Geek during pre-drinks with these pretty awesome shot glasses. Eureka!

Not feeling the plastic bottles of supermarket-own lemonade topped up with vodka? Nah, me neither. Carry your, no doubt cheap, alcohol in one of these gorgeous hip flasks. The prints are all so beautiful I can't decide which to go for!

I love the vintage style to these things, and I love vintage-style posters; this looks just like one I saw in a little vintage stall in Islington whilst shopping for my sister's wedding dress last summer. Unfortunately since I'm actually studying medicine I think people will think I'm just one big nerd!! :(

If you've chosen to spend your pennies on things other than textbooks (it should be a crime for something you can't wear to be that expensive!!) then at least make your bookshelf look a bit useful with this clock; now you'll always know how late you are for your morning lecture!

For the most important thing to most young people (er, dur, sleep!) the right equipment is a necessity. Urban Outfitters have a beautiful range of duvets, most with a fab vintage feel to it. Check out this gorgeous floral duvet cover- and its reversible (just in case you spill tea on one side)!!

Not going to uni? Do what I did last year...visit other people!! Great excuse to get the fantastic nights out, visit loads of different cities and best of all, you won't be having to wake up at 9 for lectures ;)
Crash in style, with this amazing sleeping bag

Good luck to everyone starting university, I'm beginning to get really nervous, I dunno about you!!
