I am in shock that I have more than 50 followers! A massive thank you to everyone that's following me, or has commented me (or both of course!) - I really do appreciate each & every one of you - & am planning on replying to my comments after I do this :)
Just to let you know, I haven't got my giveaway ready to post about. I'm sorry. I know I'm crap. It's just happened so quickly (not complaining, it's amazing!) & I haven't had chance to sort it all out. I promise it'll be this week. I have got a collection of bits & pieces that are ready to go in this giveaway, including mainly make-up & a bit of jewellery (so far) - will let you know more details asap. I hope you're not too disappointed in me - I've just had a huge amount going on & haven't had time to sort out the details. Sorry!
I went shopping yesterday... Naughty me! On my way home I did realise that it probably wasn't a good idea to go shopping the week before payday - but oh well!
I've got pics of SOME of the bits I bought:
Love this, it's SO pretty. This skirt was from Primark & cost a whole £7.
I also got:
Cost £2.50 - wore this today :)
I also got this:
Was going to get the navy blue striped one, but the buttons were gold (bleurgh), so went for this one - which is 'cornflower', as it has silver buttons :) This cost £5.
Have seen lots of Paris-inspired items around (which I like, particularly as I went to Paris a few months ago!), but have resisted so far - until I saw this:
It's lovely - & only cost £5. It's a pretty 'blush' colour (which doesn't show up well here) - very on trend!
Spotted this in the Mens Department - I always check out mens stuff for t-shirts & accessories - I always used to buy mens cardigans, as they were a bit longer & slouchier, but now I don't have to, as they're all 'boyfriend' style anyway!
I don't really know why I like this so much, but I LOVE it - & it's such an easy to wear piece :) Only cost £4.
I also got some black jeggings, as I've wanted some for a while - & some light blue ones, as I thought they'd be nice for Summer - they're reduced to £6. I've already got the dark blue ones from ages ago, but thought I might as well! (Didn't get a pic of them though..)
I also picked these pretty bits up:
Some 'wine' tights, as they were only 50p, & two new rings! The pink rose one is from New Look & the other one is from Asda, & it's amazing - really unusual. I struggled to get a decent pic of it though - will keep trying!
Trying my new ring on (on the bus!).
I also bought quite a few things in New Look (again). Haven't got pics of all of it, but here's some:
Grey 'skater' dress - on offer at £10 at the moment, from £16. These are great as they're so versatile, & ideal for layering etc.
I also got a couple of pretty basic tops which I thought would do for work, which I haven't got pics of.
Then I bought this for my friend:
She's got a thing about giraffes, & collects them - so when I saw this I couldn't resist! Hope she likes it :)
This is probably my new favourite dress - ever:
It really didn't photograph well (you may have noticed I still haven't found my camera..), but seriously - it's amazing. So amazing that I bought it in black too :)
I also bought this bag, which again, doesn't do it justice :
It's really nice, & it cost £8. I may have mentioned before that I love grey! It reminds me of a bag I've already got, which is a similar shape, but is white & studded ALL over with oversized silver studs - it's beautiful!
Speaking of bags, this is the bag I used yesterday for my shopping trip:
It's one I've had for years. It was from New Look. I was feeling uninspired when I was getting ready yesterday, & it just happened to be there!
I also wore these shoes:
Which are the same as the black ones I've blogged about recently - from Primark, costing £6 - ages ago.
I also bought some random little bits - like a purple umbrella for £1, a bright yellow nail varnish for 50p, a pack of 10 pens for 27p (bargain!) as the kids at school keep borrowing & not returning all my pens - etc..
I cut & painted my nails last night - they now look like this:
Love this colour :)
Ok, think I've finally run out of things to say.. promise I'll get the giveaway sorted..
