Shopping Haul.

29 Oct 2012

Well hello there!

I hope you are well! :) I've had a lovely two days, shopping with my sister, and then today visiting my cousin as it was her 31st birthday and playing with her two lovely daughters :). They're 3 and 1, so adorably cute!

So, me and my sister Katie, went shopping in Guildford yesterday! For those of you that haven't been, Guildford is really pretty, and has cobble stones down the main high street, which always makes a town look really cute I think :) And, the shops are ace too!

I didn't get a massive amount, as we were attempting to find an outfit for my sister, as our cousin John is getting married next weekend :) Andd, we did mess around quite abit trying on ridiculously fancy clothes with extortionate price tags, just for the fun :)

Anyway! Heres what I got, :);

My BARGAIN OF THE DAY! A lovely Mustard Blazer from Topshop!

Now, as you probably all know, blazers from Topshop are usually around the £55-65 mark! Which, as much as I love Topshop and really am in need of a good new blazer, is just way too expensive for me at the moment! But, I saw this beauty in the sale rack, and managed to blag it for just £20! Bargain or what?! I was well chuffed! The picture makes the colour look a little dark, it's actually slightly lighter but still very vibrant! I can't wait to wear it :) Oh, and it feels super soft!

I then blagged another sale item! This time in River Island, a really cool plain white structured shirt;

I've seen this in River Island for a while now, and always been unsure of whether I liked the 'hole' design by the collar, but as this was only £12 in the sale, I figured I may aswell try it! And I love it! Its a nice twist to what otherwise would just be a plain shirt! Result! :)

I got this black leather bag for my cousin Michele's birthday;

It was from Accesorize, and was about £35 which I thought was pretty standard for the shop! I really liked the butterfly detail though, and being an over-the-shoulder bag (which was pretty damn roomy) I thought it was perfect for a busy mummy :) She really liked it anyway, so thumbs up Accessorize! :)

The last item I picked up was, the Ojon Rare Blend Oil - Total Hair Therapy from Boots;

It was £29, so abit of a splurge but I really wanted to try it! And it just looks so prettyy, how could I resist?! ;)

I used it this morning, and my hair did feel instantly smoother and really soft! And now, after going out in the horrible wind and random rain showers its still looking good! So I'm a very happy camper so far! I'll do a proper review when I've used it for abit longer though :)

I tried to take a picture of my hair after using the Ojon oil to show you, but I'm god-awful at taking pictures of myself so this was the best out of the lot (harks back to my emo/scene days :P). I do think it has made my hair look quite sleek and de-frizzed though! :)

One last thing, its not beauty/fashion related...butt I am LOVING this M&S Peach, Camomile and Green Tea drink at the moment! Its literally delicious! And only a pound! Gotta love M&S Food :)

So thats everything! I hope you enjoyed the post, :)

I'll leave you with a good thought;

"While there's life, there's hope."

Bye for now!
