When I was naming this post I had to think a little, will my readers be expecting to see that I've bought myself something expensive or something really fab? Well I haven't, I just treated myself to a few bits and pieces I have had my eye on recently and seen as I haven't been having the best time lately, infact for the past two months I've become the unluckiest person ever, I thought I would treat myself to a little retail therapy. A few of these pieces were bought while I was in York for valentines day, and the rest was bought this week, surprisingly I haven't been buying a lot of clothes recently and my wardrobe desperately needs updating so I thought why not! I am also a bit of a skincare and makeup hauler at the moment, unfortunately my wish list is ever expanding...
'I LIVE FOR NEW YORK STYLE' CROPPED TEE-£16-RIVER ISLAND
I never ever ever buy slogan tops, but I am in desperate need of casual tops to pop on with my jeans and I just really liked the minimalist style of this top, also who doesn't love New York style?!...
FLEUR DE FORCE, THE GLAM GUIDE-£7.49-WHSMITH
I am a big lover of blogger and fashion/ beauty books at the moment so when I spotted this one in store the other day I just had to grab myself a copy. What I love about this book is that it covers beauty, fashion, lifestyle, dreams and relationships in such a casual way, you know those books when you just know this is so truthful and hasn't just been written by other people? That's the main reason I loved it, Fleaur de force offers such great advice and tips along with an insight into her personal experiences, I highly reccomend you grab yourself a copy! Next on my wish list is Love Tanya, by Tanya Burr.
GARNIER SHINE BE GONE! TONER-£3.29- SUPERDRUG
I am really trying to work on my skincare routine, I now use Micellar cleansing water, moisturiser and toner to try and keep my skin cleansed and oil free. I haven't tried this toner yet but it aims to minimise pores, reduce blemishes and prevent oily skin, so I'll let you know how that goes!
RIMMEL LONDON LASTING FINISH FOUNDATION & RIMMEL LONDON WONDER'FULL MASCARA- £7.99 EACH- BOOTS
Although I hardly ever buy my my makeup from boots as I prefer to get it cheaper at savers or body care I am trying to build upon my boots points haha, so when I popped into boots today I noticed all of their RIMMEL LONDON products were on offer 2 for £10 and considering I needed a new mascara, and the products are worth £7.99 each, I just had to get them!
OFF THE SHOULDER RIBBED TOP-£18.00-RIVER ISLAND
This was definitely an impulse buy, I spotted it alone, in my size and it had no orange makeup stains on it...I absolutely loved it and thankfully I bought it because they don't stock it in my local store! I really love the off the shoulder trend right now, and the ribbed nature of the material also keeps you warm in this freezing cold weather!
MULTIPLE ROW NECKLACE-£5.99-H&M
Again this is a trend which I have completely fallen for, I have seen a lot of these about, especially in Topshop which have some gorgeous jewellery in store at the moment, but when I saw this one for just £5.99 I had to buy it, such a bargain! It is so perfect for dressing up a causal day outfit by wearing over a cami, oversized jumper or causal tee.
RIB FUNNEL TOP (NAVY)-£10.00- TOPSHOP
I am such a fan of Topshop basics at the moment, especially these funnel tops which combine casual wear with the high neck trend for just £10, I also have this one in white, shock.
