Primarni haul

Hiya lovelies

Well we fly to Zante later this week for a family holiday so today Mike's neice and I went shopping for some last minute bits.

As you know I love Primark but lately I am finding the dresses in there are not that great, I don't know whether its a summer thing but I always tend to find that Primark has better winter clothing than summer.

Anyway these are my buys.....firstly this lovely nude bag.

I love this bag for many reasons. I love the cut out detail (its very much like the Nica bags), I love the colour and the size as its not too small and not too big...its just right.  You can wear this across the body or shoulder.  This was only £8.00  but I think it looks a lot more expensive too.




This pretty cotton top was in the nightwear section but its stunning as a top.  It really is flattering and worn with a white cami under it looks gorgeous.  I am going to wear this on holiday with shorts/denim mini skirt.  This was £4.50.




Pink ditsy leggings PJ bottoms - oh my gosh I cannot describe how much I love these!  they are so comfy its ridiculous...they look really pretty too.  I actually prefer the legging style PJ bottoms as I find normal PJ bottoms are too long and then drag along the floor or catch onto things.  They were only £5.00 ...might have to get some more of these in different colours/designs!




Bow Make Up bag - to be honest I do have a make up bag so did not really need to buy a another but I liked this as its so stylish looking.  I like the fact that it has 2 separate compartments too. This was £3.00




Hair slides - I know I have way too many hair slides but I love the bottom ones, they are stunning with dark hair.   I love the pretty pink floral ones too



I also bought some bits in Superdrug & Sainsburys.

I am loving the new Impulse fragrances especially the ones in the photo.  The Phil Smith Mirror Shine is brilliant it really does make your hair really shiny and glossy looking and its only £2.99.  The heat protection spray is definitely something I needed for my holiday.



I have had some fabulous ebay/charity shop bargains lately too and bought something in the Topshop sale....I shall post about these soon. :)  

What do you think of my buys?

Cath Kidston treats

On Saturday I went shopping with my husband and I bought a few things which I shall post about another time.    Mike bought some clothes for our holiday and I bought a couple of things which I shall post about at a later date.  Mike .bought me a few little treats in the Cath Kidston sale in John Lewis.

Ticket Holder (although I am using this for debit cards etc 


Mirror - this is ideal for my handbag



I am a massive Cath Kidston fan so I was delighted with these goodies.

He also treated me to lunch in one of my favourite places...Pizza Hut...yummy!

Have you bought anything in the Cath Kidston sale?

Update/Outfit Post - Pink to make the boys wink!

Well I am not sure if the boys actually winked when I wore this but I really love this cute little dress from New Look, I had a few looks from women strangely enough....! I wore this out yesterday when Mike and I went shopping.

Now I don't know if you remember but back in March I joined the gym where I work, I know I have lost some weight but I never weigh myself so I am not sure how much I have lost but being honest I don't think its a lot, however I am a lot more toned.  My bottom is definitely smaller and firmer and my legs and thighs have got smaller too.  I find the hardest part for me to lose weight from is my stomach and waist...much to my annoyance.  I have got an hourglass shape though so I should be happy with that.  This dress is a size 10 too but I don't know if that means a lot though as shops are very varied with their sizing.

We have our holiday in just under 2 weeks so for the next week or so I am just keeping up the gym and eating really well.

The dress actually has ruffles around the bust but I prefer it without the ruffles as I think its too much and spoils the dress so I tucked the ruffles inside the dress, I think it looks much better like that!

***please double click the photos to enlarge***


I love this little pink ruffled bag its from Fiorelli and my best friend bought me this for my birthday last year, this is the first time I had used it.  Its pink and has ruffles, she knows me well as its very me! 



Pink Ditsy floral dress - New Look
Horse waist belt - Primark
Tan wedges - New Look 
Pink ruffle bag - Fiorelli

I love these wedges too, I bought these to wear with my bikini on holiday so that I look a tad slimmer, although they are not too high though.  Wedges are great for making your legs look super lean and toned.

Take care
