Recent Buys!

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

1. Asos Red Petite Skater Dress (UK size 6): I love the Asos petite skater dresses, they fit so well and if you are really petite like me (5ft) then you know how hard it is to find dresses etc that are not tent-like! Most dresses are far too long for me but these petite asos dresses, especially the skater dresses, are above my knee which is rare. This was in the sale for £15. I have a polka dot one and a couple of plain ones already. 

2. Topshop Plain Vests: I bought a couple of plain vests in the Topshop sale a month or so ago as they were only £3 each. I bought them for my sister as they come down too low at the front for me. 

3. Topshop Black Beanie: Again this was a sale item, I think is was £2 or £3 a month or so ago. I like beanies on other people but I can't seem to find the right one for me but this one is nice. 

4. Topshop Black Scarf: Again a sale item, I think it was £3 which I think is a great price for a scarf - especially a Topshop one. The colour is a mix of black and brown which I don't really like (not as described on the website).

5. Topshop Polka dot Charcoal Jeans: I bought these in the Topshop sale about a month ago (can you see a pattern here!). I think they were either £15 or £20, a bargain either way. I wasn't sure whether to get them as I don't have anything like this but I am glad I did. I think they look good but the material is really thin, they don't feel like jeans. 

6. La Redoute Brown Ballet Pumps: I bought these a few weeks ago and I have worn them quite a few times, most recently to the Trafford Centre last weekend. I love them, I think they look really chic, simple and they go with almost everything. I think they were about £6!

7. Topshop Apple Necklace: Another sale buy, it was only £1.50 from the Topshop online sale. I bought this to put with a friends present - it looks so cute. 

8. Burts Bees Radiance Toner: There would have to be some beauty items in this haul! I bought this from an eBay auction and I love the Radiance day cream but this isn't great so far. I have only used it a couple of times and it isn't amazing, I will have to use it more and my eczema is still going a little bit crazy especially around my eyes so I can't test this properly yet. 

9. The Body Shop Moisturising Foundation (shade 02): I have featured this in a couple of posts already. I have wanted to try it for ages and I finally did when I had a code. It is a great but it is no where near as moisturising/dewy as I thought it would be. 

10. Dainty Doll Lipstick (Shade: Storm in a tea cup) and Barry M Nail Polish (Shade: Lychee): I have wanted to try both products for a while and I bought them from They were both pretty cheap and the nail polish shade is great but the formula for me is quite streaky (definitely a two coater). The lipstick shade is really nice, it is a browny pink. 

11. Dome Z Palette: I bought this a week or so ago and I have already filled it with my dome and normal eyeshadows. It comes with metal circles to attach the eyeshadows to the palette - its great so far but a little pricey and it feels a bit cheap because it is made from cardboard. 

12. Gap Contrast Sleeve Top: I bought this top from the Trafford Centre Gap store and it was only £5.99 in the sale. It is cute and super comfy and soft! I bought it in an S.

13. Gap Navy & White Stripe Jumper: Another Gap sale item, this gorgeous chic french style jumper was £14.99 in the sale. I bought it in an XS and it fits well (slightly baggy but it fits well). My sister bought the same one but the stripes on hers are a gorgeous bright coral colour!

  6. So jealous you bought lyche! I've wanted it for ages but its always sold out :(
    If the burts bees still isn't working for you I'd recommend weleda skin food. I had stupidly dry skin on my fore head and it fixed it after two uses :) xxx

  7. I've had my eye on z pallets for a while & your right they are over priced! But they are a great idea.
