March haul - Primark, H&M & George

Hello everyone

I am back with another big haul! 

This haul mainly consists of tops among a few other things and these items have been purchased over the past few weeks!   

Firstly in Primark I purchased a few basics. 

  I purchased these two cardigans in like a blush peachy pink and an ivory colour for £4.90 each in Primark.  I don't know what's wrong with Primark sizing lately but I had to get a size 6 in these where as I am more of an 8-10!  I love these cardi's though as they are really stretchy and  soft.

Two basic vest tops in nude and white.

Cute daisy print vest

I love Primark homeware I think the homeware is better than the clothing.   I love this floral hand towel.

Love these little peep toe lazer cut sandals 

I have been really disappointed with Primark dresses lately they seem really poor quality and I am not keen on the patterns/prints! 

Anyway onto H&M where I purchased the following:

I do love how H&M always seem to do nice tops and at a really reasonable price.  I love this peach burnout lace effect top, its so lovely on and it looks really nice with skinny jeans or I may wear it to work with a skirt.

This cute little floral vest top I thought was just so nice especially with jeggings or shorts when its warmer.

Mauve lace top t-shirt

I also bought this cardigan it was only £7.99. I used the stock photo as the photo I took does not show how pretty this cardigan is.  Its such a great thin cardi to throw on when you just want a bit of cover.  I have a dress very similar to the one she is wearing in this photo too and it would go so nice with this cardigan! 

Also I saw this pretty make up bag by the till :) 

Then onto George in Asda where I purchased these cute little floral pumps in the sale for £3.00.  I wore these today and they are so comfy and look so sweet.

I also loved these mugs in Asda so bought a couple.

I did also purchase a couple of dresses but I will put these in a seperate post.  Also look out for a couple of fake tan reviews and an ebay bargain! 

Have you been buying much lately?

Take care

NOTD - Bourjois So Laque Glossy in Peach and Love

 Hello everyone

I managed to pick up the Bourjois So Laque Glossy varnish in Peach and Love for only £2.50 last week.  I thought for that price it was worth a try!  

I think its a really summery colour and its very pretty but I find its very runny.  These photos are taken after I applied two coats.

This is ok,  I think its pretty enough but the consistency is not very good and its a bit cheaper looking than my Number 1 polish which is Maybelline Nude Rose.   Plus it chips really easily and only lasts 1 or 2 days which I really hate as I like a polish that lasts a bit longer. 

Have you tried this varnish?  What's your opinons?

♥ New 'Poppy Lux' Dress ♥

Hello everyone

Poppy Lux are a Brighton based fashion label that I have seen on many fashion websites. Sugarhill Boutique sell Poppy Lux here -  also Joy, New Look and Dorothy Perkins are selling this brand now. As soon as I saw this dress online I had to order it!   I am a sucker for florals anyway but this dress is absolutely perfect. It was £39 which is dearer but the quality and fit is second to none.  I ordered the size 10 and it fits really nicely, like a slightly a-line fitted dress and its a lovely material plus its fully lined.  I also love the fact that its not really short its just above the knee on me.

I really adore this dress and cannot wait to wear it.

Have you ever purchased anything from Poppy Lux?

Take care

Mike and I popped out for lunch last Saturday and afterwards we had a little browse in the shops.  I was enticed into Oasis as I loved their 'springlike' window display.  They do have some really pretty dresses in there...........

however nothing I really wanted except these pretty earrings!

I think they are simply stunning.

Outfit Post - Lace & Crochet!

Hiya everyone

MIke and I went out for lunch today...only to Pizza Hut but you got to love 'The Hut'! 

This was my outfit

I adore this creamy white crochet dress its from G21 at Adsa...when I first bought it a few years ago it was skintight and I could only wear it with leggings as it was so short, however since losing weight I can now wear this as a dress in summer with bare legs as its a lot longer.

Belt - this is my trusty Horse clasp belt from Primark...I wear this belt so much with various outfits!

The beige boots are from H&M

The faux leather jacket is also from G21 at Asda 

The handhag is fron New Look.  I bought it this time last year and I love this bag so so much! 

Have a lovely weekend

Small Beauty and Clothing Haul ♥

Hiya everyone

Last Friday I had an afternoon off work and thought I would have a wander around the shops.  The kids were still of school so it was pretty packed everywhere...I don't think I chose the right time.

I have a gift card from New Look that I have had since Christmas and it has quite a lot on it.  I spent some of this but still have about £80 left!

I managed to purchase this pretty 'Kelly Brook' bikini in the sales which was reduced to £10. Even though I have lost a lot of weight and down to a size 8-10 I still have a large chest!!  I love Kelly Brook bikinis as they cater for ladies over a DD cup.

I also got these New Look Indigo Jeggings, I love these I managed to get them in a size 8 and a 30 inch leg.  My old jeggings are literally rolling down now and I find them really baggy on the ankles.

In Primark I bougth the lazer cut top that I  purchased in red but in white.

Also this peach pink lace trim top 

hair bands - very Cath Kidston :) 

I also popped into Boots and had a little spree.

I wanted some fake tan, to be honest I am tanned all year around and in winter I tend to use a cheaper tan just because I don't show as much flesh.  In summer I prefer to stick to Sienna X spray tans or I buy Sienna X...I love that stuff.   I also love Sally Hansen, which I did purchase another bottle.  I usually buy the Tan Glow but thought I would try the Medium Glow. 

I think the Airbrush Legs are foolproof and it looks amazing on your legs!

I also noticed the L'Oreal Sublime Dark Tanning Gel and thought I would give it a try.  This was £12.99, not expensive for fake tan but not one of the cheaper ones either.  I will be doing a review of this very soon!

I also wanted a new mascara and was going to try one of these Maybelline mascara's 

however I ended up purchasing the 17 Doll'd Up Mascara and I have to say this is by far the best mascara I have ever used.  I cannot praise this mascara enough!

stock photo as I accidentally deleted the photo I took of it!!

I also ordered a gorgeous dress online which I shall tell you about in a seperate post.

Take care

Charity Shop Finds

Hiya everyone

  Last week I thought I would pop into my local charity shops.   I love having a mooch around charity shops and we have some really good ones not far from us!   One of them is fabulous they always have a lot of ASOS, Zara, Oasis and New Look items.

 They had loads of stuff this particular day however some of the items were a tad overpriced for second hand!  For instance they had a Zara jumper which was £12.00!! It was not even in really great condition so I thought it was way overpriced.

 I managed to bag a couple of good bargains, I got this AX Paris Daisy Print Navy dress with cut out detail.  I love this dress.

I also got this navy Espirit top, I rhought this would be lovely for summer with a navy skirt for work, I love the ruffle sleeves and the fit is really nice.

I also got this brand new with tags fake fur collar which was reduced to £1.50.

Anyway I have a half day in work tomorrow and then I am going to have a couple of hours of retail therapy.  I think a trip to Primark is in store!

Have a lovely weekend
