Bargain Of The Week #6

I can't get enough of the sale jewellery in Topshop at the moment. I always use it as an opportunity to update my collection and save a fairly significant amount of money at the same time. These necklaces were only £1.50 each, reduced from £5 which I thought was very reasonable! They had rows and rows of similar designs all with the new brown packaging they've introduced (and I much prefer!) so I had a good ol' rifle through till I found a couple that caught my eye.

Necklaces: £1.50 each, Topshop

I think I've said before I'm a massive sucker for anything with my name/initials on it, so was obviously instantly drawn to this design :') On a small side note I also noticed a post on Stacey's blog this morning, and she's selling the most adorable scrabble style initial cushions for only £5 each! Probably, definitely, going to place an order for one later. Such a bargain!

One of my best friends bought this necklace for full price when it first came out and I'd been eying it up ever since... for £1.50 it was time to purchase!

What do you guys think of these necklaces? Would you buy them? Have you found any other bargains in the Topshop sale? I also picked up the most amazing collar necklace for only £4! 

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather we've finally been given the last few days :)

Where Does The Good Go?

I can't get enough of these Topshop t-shirts at the moment. They're so easy to wear and so comfortable! I've already bought it in two colours and I'm lusting after more.. Just add a simple piece of jewellery and you're good to go ;)  

I bought this necklace from Primark about 2 months ago now when I was living up in Lincoln, the time has literally flown by! I totally forgot about it until the other day when I saw it pop up on Meg's Blog and was inspired to give it some wear! I think I'd written it off as something I bought on a whim, but I actually love it a lot more than I first realised, and for a couple of quid (£2.50 maybe?) I'm kinda glad I was being slightly over spontaneous that particular shopping trip.

Top: Topshop
Necklace: Primark
Rings: H&M

I wore this a few days ago when I spent the day with my little sister. We went for a walk and got ridiculously wet and muddy :') It's definitely the one thing I really love about being home again, funny family times!

Has anyone else bought this necklace? It's such a bargain!

Two Ten's, That's a Win - Win Situation.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far! Monday till Wednesday I had an impromptu visit from one of my best friends who lives about a million miles away, so happy to be reunited with my partner in crime. Miss her so much now that we no longer live in the same city :( 

This is what I wore out with friends at the weekend. I can't remember the last time I went out and actually had a few several alcoholic beverages. I had a brilliant night and it was over far too quickly!

This fake leather jacket from Toppy is my new favourite piece in my wardrobe! It goes with everything and is great for chucking on over any outfit, and because it's not real leather you can just shove it in the washing machine when it gets dirty which suits me much better than getting it dry cleaned ;)

I also recently bought some hair oil products from Buyapowa which I've been testing out. Thinking about doing a little series on different oil products as some seem to be a lot more effective than others. At the moment I'm using some of the Macadamia Treatments, which have left my hair so much more manageable and healthy! 

Jacket: Topshop
Pink Vest: Topshop
Leggings: Topshop
Necklace and Ring: H&M

Has anyone else bought this Topshop Jacket? I've seen quite a few people wearing it out and about! How would you style it!?

Baby love, my baby love I need you, oh how I need you!

So two days ago, one of my best friends in the whole wide world gave birth to her gorgeous baby boy :):) None of my close friends have had babies yet so she's the first, needless to say I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to share in all the excitement and happiness. Every update, no matter how small makes my heart totally melt. I love their little family so much.

This is what I wore up to the hospital yesterday and it feels slightly inappropriate posting this outfit as it has been chucking it down with rain since I woke up this morning! It was boiling yesterday, I swear!

I got this dress a couple of weeks ago in the Topshop sale for £15, which was about half price I think. It's one of those dresses that you thank your past self for buying on days like yesterday - not exactly the most exciting dress in the world, but great for chucking on on these random hot days the english weather kindly decides to give us once every couple of weeks! The dress being black also means it's a blank canvas for accessories, granted my choice yesterday wasn't exactly thrilling, but I'm looking forward to playing around with some different styles over the summer.

I've also been wearing the L'oreal rouge caress lipstick in 'Cheeky Magenta' a ridiculous amount since I bought it. It's a really flattering shade and it's texture is amazing. Though I've been struggling with the shade 'Fashionista Pink', it doesn't seem to show up on my lips at all!

Black Midi Dress: Topshop
Belt: My Mums
'K' Necklace: Primark
Wooden Bangle: Topshop (about 5 years old :'))

Has anyone else has the same problem with that particular shade? It's so annoying because I really love 'Cheeky Magenta' ! Hope everyone is having a lovely rainy Friday :)
