Being a student ain't all it's cracked up to be, especially where budgeting and money comes in. We're strapped for cash as it is but when you've got books and specialist equipment to purchase, as well as feeding ourselves we don't often have the pennies to spend on things that we fancy. So here's my student wishlist, if i had the cash to splash on anything!

Cath Kidston is every female students dream, it gives the homely touches quite easily, adding colour and pattern to brighten any student space. Brightly printed duvets, throws and blankets are a great way to make a blank space seem more cosy and welcoming. Why not give your phone a make over while you're at it, even matching it to your bedding?

Another easy way to brighten up a space is to add plenty of soft furnishings in your favourite colours and patterns, even decorating for the season. I adore cushions, i find they're the perfect way to add a splash of colour. Mixing and matching prints and colours is a great way to show your personality, even in a small space. However, if you've got that little extra space, if you're not in halls of residence, why not try a beanbag? It's the perfect addition to any living room or bedroom to add extra seating or just as a touch of personality.

Up to date technology is any students dream, and the new iPad would come in handy in any student room. They're great for slipping in your bag to take to lectures or the library, or even on the train when you're popping off home for the weekend. If you're lucky enough to have a TV in your room, or in your house or flat, why not indulge in the Autumnal season and spend a night with your friends watching classic Halloween films like Hocus Pocus or Practical Magic?

Treating yourself is a lot easier when you're in the supermarket, things can slip into your basket and you're not horrified at the price until you're at the till. Ben & Jerry's is the one of the most common things students wish they could buy but can't bring themselves to pay out for. The only time i ever buy myself ice cream is if it's on offer, so make sure to check out next time you're at the supermarket.

As a fashion student, buying clothes is my favourite pastimes and it pains me every time there's a beautiful item of clothing, or a cult product and i can't add it to my wardrobe. Topshop Tall jeans are my favourite items of clothing because they're comfortable, versatile and there are so many colour and prints to add to your collection but at £38 it's a struggle to part with the cash, even adding student discount. The sequin sleeved jacket is turning into a cult coat amongst bloggers and students alike. It's a gorgeous take on the classic parka, perfect to take you from Autumn to Winter with a touch of sparkle. Now boots are a classic for this season, and these studded Topshop boots are perfect to add an edge to any A/W outfit.
