Hey Dolls,

Just a little post to show you what I have been buying lately! I've been a bit naughty and had a bit of a spree! I think I deserve it though considering I haven't had a holiday yet this year & I got myself a new job that I love - this is what I'm telling myself anyway!

I am loving Miss Guided at the moment and can't get enough of their new stuff! I'm sick of wearing my Zara leather jacket on a night out (as much as I love it) and I fancied a cream/white boyfriend style blazer to keep me warm. This blazer was only £25.99 !! You can get it HERE. I am also loving the studded collars at the minute so I picked up another Miss Guided dress in cream with the studded collar at £26.99 which you can get HERE.

I was walking through Manchester city centre on the way home last night, and came across 'Hearts & Bows' shop. This is similar to shop 'ARK', if you have heard of it! I absolutely love their stock and I could have bought everything. I managed to narrow it down to the vintage army jacket, leather racer skirt & studded edged collar nude pink blouse. This all came to around £72, which I think is really reasonable considering I got a whole outfit and a jacket. I'm going to wear them for a gig I'm going to this Friday and I don't know if I'm more excited about seeing the band or wearing my new attire, haha.

In Primark I got everything in the picture for £12!! Bargainell ! I needed some large rollers and gold hoops in general and then I have been desperate for a white/cream peplum top, so at £8 I couldn't really say no! If you are into your little charm necklaces, I picked up this letter 'A' one for £1.50 & they have lots of other cute charm necklaces to!

I also couldn't resist some beauty treats too! I decided after reading review after review on Bio Oil and the Sally Hansen 'Insta Dri', I should invest in these products. I haven't tried the 'Insta Dri' yet but I am loving life with the Bio Oil! I coated myself in it last night, and not only does it smell lush, my skin felt AMAZE this morning! I would suggest using it at night, before bed though as I was pretty greasy all night, eww. I got the standard lashes from Superdrug, as at the minute they have a 3 for £10 offer on so it was obviously a sign telling me to stock up 8). I got the individual lashes as well as my favourite going out strip lashes to wear for daytime. I have used these before I got my semi-permanent ones done and I really like them. Unfortunately after wearing semi-permanent for over a year, my eyes gave up on me and started reacting really badly so I had to sack that one off, and this is my alternative. I just threw the magazine & L'oreal youth serum samples in the picture as they were in with the rest of my shopping! See if they make me look any younger...hmm!

Hope you like my pieces!
Hope everyone is having a nice week, roll on Friday!

  4. I love the Hearts and Bows brand, just discovered it recently myself. I didn't know they had an actual store though! I've only seen it on the Ark website and asos.com.
