Clothing Haul 003.

Here's the bits and bobs that I've purchased this week!

Matalan - £6 

I got these as they are a bargain for £6 - They are way too big as they didn't have my size but I think a belt will help shape them up a bit!

New Look - £14.99

This skirt is actually a lot brighter than in the picture and being 5"10 I will never get a skirt that's too long but it shall do for when the sun comes out!

Primark - £6

Primark had so many patterns but I was drawn to these cute spotty sandals!

Primark - £2.50

Primark - £7

This top is actually more green than in the picture. It has a zip on the back and a nice silvery foil/sheen effect on the front!

Primark - £3 each

I got some jewellery to go with my dress for my graduation ball. I may not wear these but at £3 I will still get some use out of these!

Primark - £10

Very TGI Fridays 

New Look - £5.99 £2!

I'm loving collar necklaces right now and found this gem in the sale!

Primark - £6

This is to go with the skirt below - I wanted a cute spring outfit!

New Look - £14.99

Love how cute this skirt is!

So yes I got quite a few things but I think they are things I can mix and match in order to make loads of new outfits! I'm also really pleased that my outfit for my graduation ball has only cost me £50 altogether when so many people are spending £100+ on just their dresses! All I need now is a bag!

Tried my contact lenses at the opticians for the first time. Wearing eye make up was a big mistake. Oops.

Forever 21

Tomorrow I'm off to Birmingham for a spot of retail therapy. I'm broke but I have an overdraft....for now. I think Brimingham's Bull Ring is a great day of shopping. It's like London but it costs less to get there & it's not as busy as Oxford Street. It has all the essentials; a rather large Topshop and Primark, Selfridges for the food court & high end browsing, MAC because well...we all need one AND Forever 21!

Now Forever 21 only have two stores in the UK, Birmingham and late last year Oxford Street in London. It is three floors of browsing heaven! I think it can be a bit hit or miss but there is always something you will love in store. Prices aren't bad at all either! Yes, some things are normal priced but every now and again you will find something and be amazed at how cheap it is! Cute summer dresses go for around £15, Shorts for about £12-£18 and tops vary depending on material.

And the jewellery part of the store? OH EM GEE! It is my version of heaven. I pick up a little basket and spend easily an hour choosing little trinkets for my outfits!

Here's a pick of my favourite things that I will be searching for tomorrow!

forever 21

I would really recommend going to Forever 21 if you are off on holiday or to a festival this year. End of the day, the clothes are decent prices & if something does happen to them (or you buy new clothes on holiday) you can part with knowing you didn't spend £36 on a top - I'm looking at you Topshop.

Hope you are all having nice weekend!

Friday's Beauty Wishlist!

Need these!
I think I have described the wishlist of every beauty blogger right now & to be honest I have gained all my lust for these products from a few of my favourite blogs!

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer £14 - I really want to try this as I need something to strengthen my hair! It is supposed to also add shine & filters from UV light as well! I like the idea of putting it on before you shower as I hate getting out of the shower waiting 20 minutes with a leave in conditioner and then hopping back in!

Essie Mint Candy Apple £9.95 - I think this is the colour of the moment. The perfect spring shade. I don't own any Essie nail polishes as of yet but I have seen they will be selling in Boots store soon & they have such good reviews.

NARS Laguna £24 - The cult classic. I don't need a wow bronzer. Any one will do to add a bit of a glow to my cheeks. I have been loving bronzer over blusher at the moment and always go for a nice contour looked. I have seen the effect Laguna can make on the cheeks and have been dying to try it but at £24 it's even more than my beloved MAC MSF & I desperately need a repurchase! Too many choices not enough money!

Chanel Tan de Soleil £29 - I have always wanted to try this but I've been reluctant to try it as my skin is already very dark and I doubt it will make much of an impact. I think I will purchase the Laguna before this as I think I could build up a powder better than a cream.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir £9.90 - I simple want to try this because everyone is and I feel left out. I'm not sure if I will get along with it as it's got a lot of mint fragrance apparently & I like sweet smelling things. If I have a few extra pounds at the end of the month I will invest. You don't know if you will like it until you try it right?

Ghost Sweetheart £19.95 - My favourite summer perfume. I got some for Christmas and have run out. I use it sparingly as I hate running out of perfumes. So a simple repurchase!

Now we have the problem....where am I going to get the money for these? £310 was just spent on my car's MOT and Service and £80 on my graduation ball ticket. I really am broke. A girl can dream though!

Off to my one and only exam of this final uni year now! Wish me luck!
