#62 Primark Haul – Blazers

3 Apr

I actually purchased these blazers back in March, but I never really got round to showing you them. Get ready for the bargains that I am about to unveil.

| Primark Cream Blazer, £17 reduced to £3 |

You read it correctly people. 3 blazers for a total of £13.

The first £3 blazer is black with cute little ducks on, with a hint of turquoise. This is so cute; it looks great with a white tee and some light wash jeans for a casual day time look. Second up, the wine blazer for £7. This one is a bit more formal, but the colour is absolutely gorgeous. I love it. And finally, the cream £3 blazer. I wasn’t sure about this one, but for £3 I couldn’t leave it behind. It has a big gold button, but I probably wouldn’t do it up if I wore it. I think I will get more use out of this one in the summer months.

So what do you think? Bargains right. Do not forget to check out the reduced rails in Primark, you can find some absolute gems!!

#36 Boxing Day Sales Haul

27 Dec

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Yesterday (Boxing Day) I was up at 5.30am to get ready for the sales! It is a tradition for my mum, aunt, cousin and I. We go every year! I didn’t actually get too much which was a bit of a disappointment. Here is what I purchased!

 Boxing Day Sales

First up Next, which was manic as it is every year! I couldn’t find too much that I really needed here. However, their homeware section is incredible and there were many bargains to be had! I got myself a new pair of jeans which are a bit of a brighter navy than normal for £10 (originally £20). I also picked up this hat which I thought was pretty cute for £3!

Boxing Day Sales

Secondly, Boots. I purchased two gift sets for myself that were half price. This 17 Eye and Lip Trio was £3 (originally £6) and I picked it up on a whim really. It contains a black liquid eye liner, an eyeshadow in the shade Regal and a lip gloss in the shade Very Berry. I just thought for £3 it was pretty good! I couldn’t resist this Soap and Glory set either. I received their Showers that Glee set for my birthday so there was no need for me to buy any bath/body products. However I have never used their make up so I thought I would get this and give it a try. The set cost £11 (originally £22) and contained the Love at First Blush blusher, Smoulder Kohl in black and Sexy Mother Pucker (best. name. ever.) in Punchbowl. I love them so far. I also purchased a couple of L’Oreal items that I needed. I have been looking for a new liquid eye liner for a while so I picked up this Super Liner Perfect Slim liner in Black. I was also in need of a new foundation so picked up the True Match foundation in Golden Ivory. Because I spent over £15 on L’Oreal products I received this free ‘Dress Up In Diamonds’ set!

Boxing Day Sales

In this free set, I received a sample pot of Revitalift (5ml), Volume Million Lashes Diamantissme (8.5ml), Color Riche Diamantissme Lipstick in 325 Ferric Fuschia, Color Riche Crystallisme Topcoat in number 820 (5ml) and a sample sachet of Nude Magique and True Match. I also received a money off voucher for the True Match foundation. I was quite impressed when I got home and saw what was inside! The lipstick is full size and the colour pay off is gorgeous!

Boxing Day Sales

And lastly New Look. I actually didn’t buy anything from their sale (I just couldn’t see anything!). However, I did pick up this bag for £19.99. I have been looking for a new handbag for a while and this fitted the bill for me! It is a versatile colour and is really quite spacious! It has an inside pocket too, handy for keys and my iPhone.

I hope you liked this post and picked up some bargains at the sales. If you did, tweet me, I want to know all about them!

PS. I haven’t included any links to the products as most are sale items and have sold out online. I looked for a link to New Look bag but it was not online either! Sorry guys!

#34 My Christmas Jumper Quest

23 Dec

You may have seen a couple of weeks ago I did a Christmas jumper edition of my Weekend Wishlist. It showed my favourite Christmas jumpers available and lots of you had a good look at them, I hope you all found one you liked! Last week I tried to purchase the Christmas tree Boohoo jumper I featured but unfortunately it had sold out. Thus my quest began.

Ever since then I have been searching high and low for a Christmas jumper. I looked everywhere. ASOS. Missguided. Boohoo. Topshop. Miss Selfridge. Nothing. I didn’t really fancy ordering online as I did not want to risk it not coming in time for the big day. So my quest sent me to shopping centres. I visited the new Primark in my area and low and behold, nothing. I first saw the Christmas jumpers in Primark at Meadowhall in November and I knew I should have purchased one then! Hindsight is a wonderful thing I guess!

I visited a seperate shopping centre today and tried New Look, H&M and Outfit. Still nothing. Just when I thought all was lost, I popped into my town centre on a whim. I saw a new independent shop and took a chance. Look what I found!

Christmas Jumper

It was the last one in the shop and so I just grabbed it! It was £12 which was a complete bargain and I love it. The print is so cute and I love the festive red colour.

Christmas Jumper

*Insert obligatory mirror photo* Do excuse it and the ironing board in the background! I’m so happy I have found a jumper to wear on Christmas day now!

Have you got your Christmas jumper for the 25th? Or do you prefer to dress up more formal for the occasion? Let me know!

#18 Weekend Wishlist – the Christmas Jumper Edition

24 Nov

Well everyone, the Christmas season is definitely upon us. I love this time of year, the cities are always beautifully decorated and full of Christmas markets. It all puts me in a great mood. In fact, my housemates and I decorated our house this week! We raided Poundland, they have some awesome Christmas decorations – definitely worth having a look! For this weekends wishlist, I have gone with a Christmas jumper theme. I am really regretted not picking one up when I popped to Meadowhall a couple of weeks ago. Here are a few of my favourites:

1. Boohoo Shauna Christmas Tree Jumper, £15

2. Boohoo Nicole Father Christmas Jumper, £15

3. ASOS Christmas Pattern Jumper, £32

4. New Look Charcoal Scenic Reindeer Knitted Jumper, £27.99

5. River Island Red Christmas Fairisle Jumper, £35

6. Ebay Christmas Pudding Jumper, £19.99

I have been really impressed with Boohoo’s knitwear pieces this season. They have some great designs at great prices – especially their novelty Christmas jumpers! And of course, New Look, River Island and ASOS never disappoint. If you’re looking for some Christmas jumpers, eBay is definitely worth a look. The seller from the link above has a few designs, I love them all.

I love Christmas jumpers, they make me happy. There are so many great designs out there (check out Primark), it was hard knocking my selection down to 6! I know it is not even December yet, but no bah-humbugs allowed here!! :) So will you be treating yourself or your loved ones to a fab Christmas jumper?

#15 Weekend Wishlist – Missguided

18 Nov

I did a blog post all about Missguided a little while back (see it here), where I confessed my love for them. Everyday since I find myself scouring through their website, lusting over every item of clothing they have, whether it be party dresses or chunky knits. I just love their pieces, bang on trend without the hefty price tag! So for this weekends wishlist I have dedicated it to Missguided. All of the items are from Missguided, and if I wasn’t a poor student I would have bought them all! (along with most of the pieces on the website!!)

1. Sylvia Stud Disco Legging in Navy, £12.99 – I have a pair of black disco pant leggings from Missguided which I live in. It seems only right to be wanting a navy pair, and with the added studs they look amazing. So versatile, and at a great price.

2. Kimmie Chunky Knit Owl Jumper, £14.99 – How cute is this owl jumper? It looks so warm too, and I love the khaki colour. Perfect for layering with some gold jewellery. I love the way they have styled it on the website too with the chiffon skater skirt!

3. Adelie Leather Stud Ankle Boot in Black, £34.99 – These boots are gorgeous! They are studded which I love and on top of that they have a tassel detail too which is a great addition. They come in a few different colours, but for me it would have to be black.

4. Fiorenza Plaited Shopping Bag in Purple, £26.99 – The colour of this bag sold it to me. It is a beautiful purple colour, perfect for autumn/winter. It looks big and spacious too, so would be perfect for students on the go.

5. Julissa Sequin Skater Dress, £29.99 – I think Missguided are best known for their party dresses, and this seasons pieces do not disappoint. They have some amazing dresses which would be perfect for Christmas or New Year celebrations. I love skater dresses as they are so flattering for my body shape. The sequin detail of this dress gives it the right amount of sparkle for me, it’s fab!

#10 Brand Focus – Missguided

9 Nov

I am a self confessed lover of online shopping. It is quick, simple, and you can do it from the comfort of your home (or in my case, in my onesie on the sofa ha). I have recently stumbled across Missguided, and I am so impressed.

Their clothes are amazing, and are always band on trend. Their prices are so reasonable too! Another thing I love about Missguided is that they are so in touch with their customers. They are always chatting to customers on Twitter, and if their is a problem they respond soo quickly. As well as this, they are always doing flash sales, competitions, student discount, free next day delivery… the list goes on and on!

A few weeks ago I caved into this free next day delivery and bought my first Missguided items. I ordered the Kattley skater skirt (find it here) and the Frenchy disco pants (find them here). I posted a couple of photos of how I styled these on Instagram and here they are:

I love these disco pants. They are so comfortable as they are high waisted and really flattering. Another thing I love about them is that they are so versatile – you can dress them up or down. Here, I dressed them down and wore them to lectures. I teamed them with a maroon cardigan from primark, stripey tee from river island and my black loafers from new look.

This skater skirt was an absolute steal at £9.99, it looks so much more expensive than that. The style is so classic too and goes with everything. I wore the skirt to celebrate my housemate’s birthday a couple of weeks back. I teamed it with an ASOS vest and primark shoes.

Two versatile pieces, at £9.99 each, with free next day delivery AND student discount. I will definitely be shopping at Missguided again. What can I say? Missguided, I salute you. Please keep up the good work :)
