Outfit of the Day – Warm Summer Christening

Outfit of the Day

Warm Summer Christening

The weather has been quite strange this summer where I live. One week I was wearing a jumper in the office, the next I was in a summer dress and sandals. It’s been humid and cloudy, we’ve had brilliant sunshine, we’ve had torrential rain. And I never really know what to wear to Christening’s anyway. I wanted to be dressy and look good, but it also needed to be respectable enough for Church.

Outfit of the Day – Hen Party Night Out

Outfit of the Day

Hen Party Night Out

So it was my sister’s Hen Party the other weekend and I wanted to do a quick Outfit of the Day post to share what I wore when we went out on the night. We went to the Dreamboys show at Leeds and then stayed in the nightclub there, so we all got dressed up.

Products I’ve Finished – December 2014 & January 2015

Products I’ve Finished

December 2014 & January 2015

So as I mentioned in my last Nails of the Month post, I’ve been having major computer and internet issues since the middle of December, and it’s still patchy now. I’m trying to post once a week, but no promises. And due to those problems my latest Products I’ve Finished post is a combined post for both December and January. And due to that as I dug through my empties bag a lot of the things in there came as a surprise, I’d completely forgot that I’d finished them!

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? – July 2014

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

July 2014

So, now that I’m back from Portugal (I wish I was still there), I thought I’d do an updated What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post. My makeup collection has expanded a lot since I done my Spring What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post from my trip to Paris. And also since I went for two weeks, I took a fairly sizeable chunk of it with me.

For face and eye products I used this sturdy, see through bright green bag, which I got from WH Smith and is technically supposed to be a pencil case, but it worked brilliantly for makeup.

Haul – H&M, New Look, Primark, The Body Shop, Boots, Superdrug and Debenhams – April 2014

Haul

April 2014

I’ve done so much shopping lately, and I don’t really have any excuse, but I thought I’d share what I’ve been buying recently. This is an embarrassingly large haul, but some of it my sister got me for Easter, so I don’t feel too bad, and some things I am classing as essentials. Also, due to my blogging schedule, things are things I bought in April.

Starting with H&M, I got this slightly oversized jumper with black writing and a picture of the Eiffel Tower on it. This was a total bargain at only £5.99 and it is so soft and comfortable.

Outfit of the Day – Busy Day City Sightseeing in Spring

Busy Day City Sightseeing in Spring

So this is an Outfit of the Day post from my trip to Paris with my mum at the end of March, but due to having other things I wanted to post, I somehow haven’t got any of my Outfit of the Day posts scheduled and up yet. I hope you don’t mind that this is slightly old, as I really wanted to share this. And pretty much every photo of me in this outfit, I am posing in front of some Paris landmark.

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? – March 2014

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

As of March 2014

I’ve seen several posts floating around recently where people have been sharing what is in their daily makeup bags. Since I’m recently back from a trip to Paris with my mum, I thought I would share what was in my travel makeup bag since most of the things I took are the things I use every day (when I wear makeup, which isn’t everyday usually), with just a couple of extras to change it up occasionally.

Haul – New Look, Boots, Avon, British Home Stores, Primark and H&M – March 2014

Haul

March 2014

Once again, as in my last haul post, many of these items have been bought with my holidays in mind. I’m trying not to get too excited too early, but its difficult. I can’t wait to have some time off work! This is the accumulating of several shopping trips with my mum and sister over the course of March, I did not buy this all on one day. But expect a good couple more haul posts from me, I really need to get my holiday wardrobe sorted and I need to do it now, because my wages closer to my holidays I’ll want to use for spending money.

Firstly from New Look I got this lovely casual blue summer dress. I’m nor entirely sure if I will take this away with me or if I will wear it to work this summer.

Haul – River Island, Topshop, Primark, Boots and Debenhams – February 2014

Haul

River Island, Topshop, Primark, Boots and Debenhams

February 2014

I’m so excited for this upcoming year, I’ve got a lot of travelling planned. And how does this relate to a haul post on my blog you might ask? Well a lot of the things I’m buying I’m planning ahead to take away with me.

The first thing I want to show is this t-shirt from River Island. It is slightly long and slightly oversized but it’s not huge on me, it’s really comfortable. It’s in grey tones and has a pattern and a picture of cherubs on it. It has the same pattern on both the front and back which I love. It is quite similar in style to the t-shirts which can be seen in my Rhodes Haul but is better quality and the material has a slightly silky texture to it. I’ve worn this to work during a dress down day because I was going straight out with my work friends after work and wanted something fairly dressy and one of the big managers went out of her way to come over and say she liked it. And getting a compliment off her is not something you ignore!

Haul – Superdrug, The Body Shop, Illamasqua, Bath & Body Works and Primark – January 2014

Haul

January 2014

So, I’ve done a little shopping recently and I thought I’d share what I’d bought. Some of these things were essentials but some are just things I wanted and with deals I couldn’t resist.

So from Superdrug I got three lots of dry shampoo. My plan was to straighten my hair my often and use the dry shampoo. So far I’ve not had the time or the inclination to do so. The plan was not to buy three cans of the stuff, but they were on offer and it was cheaper to buy three than it was to buy one! So needless to say I ended up with three bottles. These are in the scent Head In The Clouds.
