My apologies / Sinful Sunday Recipe #2

Sorry you guys, I have been neglecting you and I feel really bad! Right now I'm stressing over a paper that is due on Tuesday. It's in literary criticism and I have to write 4-5 pages on different theories. It's not a lot to write, but there's a lot to read before I can really start writing. Looks like an all-nighter (and thank God for Monday!).

I can tell you that I was more than tempted when Asos had their mid-season sale. I bought 5 items for only £37 (!!!) and I'm waiting for the vulcanic ashes to dissappear from the atmosphere over Europe so that I will receive them! As an apology Asos sent a discount code for my next purchase that will expire May 16th: CLOUD1604 . We'll see if I'll use it, I didn't really have any money to buy something this time, so I shouldn't... (but now I shared it with you!) Once the clothes arrive I'll try and do a review quite quickly.

Anyways, I hope you're all having a more interesting Sunday evening than me. I'll leave you with a Sinful Sunday Recipe... (another thing I've neglected, sorry!)
