Was meant to do this yesterday, but just couldn't bring myself to. Don't really feel like doing it now either, but I figured once I started it'd be ok.

I'm having a hard time of it at the moment. I don't really want to go into it, as I don't want this blog to turn into somewhere I talk about these things - the point of it is to be lighthearted & to distract me from everything else. But.. oh I don't know, I just felt the need to mention it. We'll leave it at that!

So anyway, I haven't been into town since I last posted - so no new purchases to show you. Unless of course you count eBay buys! Which of course you do, so here goes:

This arrived this morning before work:

It's a H&M top - I was pleasantly surprised, as it's actually a lot nicer than the photo suggests! It's more silver than grey, & I love the big bow - it fits really nicely & will go with lots of things I own. I can picture it with different combinations both for work, daytime or even nights out - & I love things like that! Versatility is key :)

I've also got this little lovely winging its way to me as we speak:

How cute? I paid £3.99 for it. I had my eye on one similar from asos AGES ago & never got round to getting it. I actually could've picked this up much cheaper, because I've seen the exact same charms for sale - but they've been sold out for ages (bloody Alice in Wonderland inspired people!) & I couldn't wait any longer!

I also received this at the weekend:

Not the best photo (I took it from the eBay listing) - but you get the idea. It's from River Island & is a cool, slouchy t-shirt dress, with paint splatters on it (& pockets - I love pockets!). I paid about £6 for this. I love things like this, my wardrobe consists of quite a few t-shirt dresses. They're just so easy to wear. They're my staple 'don't know what to wear today' outfit - t-shirt dress of some kind, slouchy black cardi, black leggings. It's just so easy, yet cool.

I've also got a couple of new bags from eBay recently. One of them being, this one:

I paid £3.99 for this. It's a slightly darker green than it appears in the photo. I don't really know why I went for it - as it's totally not my colour. But anyway, I've got it now, & I do quite like it - & it's big enough for work, which as I've mentioned before is a bonus with bags! We'll see. I can picture it being one that ends up just sat, abandoned in my room for the rest of eternity..

Have got another new bag too, but the photo REALLY doesn't do it justice, so I'm not going to bother!

Speaking of bags - I'm in love with this bag:

It's from New Look & it's £18. Which I'm sad to say is out of my price range :( I totally love it though, in every colour. It's just so.. perfect!
I actually saw a Year 7 girl with it the other day, & was quite tempted to mug her. It's a sad sad day when you're jealous of an 11yr olds handbag!

I suppose this wouldn't be a complete post if I don't show you which rings I've been wearing!

Here goes:

I wore this today. I've had this quite a few years - this ring was where my love/obsession/need for big, chunky rings began! This was the first :) & I still love it.

I also wore a swirly silver one, but I've already posted that one, so won't again.

I've also worn both of these since I last posted:

Both of which are Primarni specials! Had both of these for ages too. The coral one, I've also got the same one in bright pink & black..

Don't think I've got pics of the other ones I've worn this week.. I'll have to rectify that for you asap.

In case anyone's wondering (I'm sure you all are really..) - my nails are black this week. Very black. Needed a contrast from last weeks pretty & pale! Have also got a bruise across my left thumbnail, which isn't the most attractive of things, so figured black would cover it up good & proper!

Right, I'm going to leave this here now. Have gone on for long enough..

Take care,
