♥♥♥ Haul and an outfit post ♥♥♥


Hiya everyone

As a self confessed shopaholic you would expect I go shopping a lot!  Well I must admit I feel I have not been shopping in ages I mean like a proper shopping session.  Last weekend I met up with a friend I have not seen since before christmas and we went shopping :)   
We had such a fab day including a free meal at Chiquitos!!  To cut a long story short we had a lovely meal (they even have a gluten free menu now) anyway when I ordered desert they bought out my ice cream in like a pastry basket (hard to explain and I am not sure what its called)  I was unsure if the 'basket'  looking thing was gluten free (usually I would ask but all the waitresses had disappeared and I had ordered it from the GF menu.  However as I was unsure I thought I would just eat the ice cream but not the 'basket'  thing...whatever it was!  After I finished eating we asked for the bill and the manager came over knelt down very quietly by our table and asked if I had eaten any of the 'basket'...I said no but there had been a couple of bits in the ice cream.. She was very red faced and was sincerely apologetic, she said I should not have been given it and therefore we had no bill!!  It was great we did not have to pay but I do think that oversight could have been costly to someone if they had eaten it. I could have been quite ill! 

Anyway drama over we then went shopping which was fun.  I did buy quite a few things which was surprising as I has been moaning how rubbish the high street is at the moment...!

Firstly in New Look I bought this white shirt dress, I have wanted a plain white shirt dress for a while and it looks like shirt dresses are going to be big this spring/summer.  I thought it would look lovely with denim jeggings and pretty ballet pumps or sandals.  


Then in H&M I purchased this pretty floral dress.   I love the pink floral print and it was only £12.99

I wore this dress today I am so chuffed that I can get into a size 10 in H&M especially as this has no stretch at all and I find their clothing is always on the small side.  




The belt is from Primark and boots are from H&M.  I did wear it with a longline pink cardi when I went out as it was so cold...



I also purchased this laced sleeved blouse in the sale.  This was reduced to £10.00.  I find H&M sizing so weird most of their items are on the small side but this blouse is in fact a size 6!!! I mean I am a 10 with a large chest so this is in no way a proper size 6!


I love this blouse though I adore the lace sleeves.


I also got some of the Heavy Leggings which are slightly dearer than the thinner onesl  I really like these as I hate leggings that are so thin they are like opaque tights! These have a great quality look and feel to them.



Then in Accessorize I purchased this pretty pink purse.  I really love Accessorize purses they always look nice quality.  This was £5.00.  I love the little pocket on the front which you can store cards in.



This belt also from Accessorize was £8.00 reduced to £2.40,  I admit I have quite a few tan skinny belts but the quality of this one is 100 times better.


Then in Dorothy Perkins I could not resist this pretty little crochet hem top.  This too is a size 6!!! 



In Topshop another shop I rarely go into unless its to look at the sale or if there is something specific I want.  I saw these cute little pink flat shoes for £7.00 in the sale.  I am a size 4 but these are size 3 they seem to fit really well.  These will be so cute for summer.




Finally Primark was pretty rubbish but I was so lucky to find this little cute laser cut top.  I really love it and i was only £5.00. I really wanted it in pink or white/cream too but all they had was this gorgeous red and a horrible sick yellow colour!





I have not had a very good week this week really I won't go into details but on the plus side I got on the scales this morning and I was another 2lb lighter.  I am now the lowest weight I have been for about 10 years...still want to lose more though! 

Have a lovely weekend

Take care

Hello everyone

I cannot wait for the warmer weather I am so sick of it being cold and dreary.   

I have got my eye on a few Spring items in Topshop and one dress in ASOS.  I am extremely tempted to order the 1st pair of shoes from Topshop......they are different for me but there is something I love about them.  Mike was not keen when I showed him though ha ha but I love them!

Crochet Trim T-Shirt Dress by Rare

Have you got a wishlist for Spring 2015?

Ebay bargains - Topshop Dress & Primark Boots


Hello lovelies

I always think there is nothing better than when you get a really good bargain.  I love Charity shops as its so exciting when you go in not knowing what you are going to find. Sometimes you are disappointed as there is nothing exciting and then just sometimes you come across things that you love or have been looking for ages!  I love Ebay too, I do think it has some annoying downsides but its great when you find things you love at low prices.  I love a good bargain like most people!   I was browsing on Ebay the other day, I am not sure if you do this but I try and tend to put misspelt words like Topsop or Miss Selfidge in the search bar as sometimes you can get some great bargains that way.  Also I often do an advanced search and put in my size and filter between 0.01 to 1.99 ending within 5 hours and you can find some gems that way too!

 I managed to find this Topshop Petite Floral Shirt dress the other day and I have been lusting after this dress for ages!  When I was in Zante last year I saw a girl wearing it and I really wanted it.  It was originally £38.00 I think,  I would not have spend that much on it.  I managed to get it on ebay for £6.00 including postage and its like new!   The only downside is that its mega mega short!  I am only 5ft 3ins but there is no way I would wear this as a dress and it just about covers my bottom but it looks lovely with blue jeggings.   I love this dress so much :) I cannot wait for the warmer weather so I can wear it.  Plus I do love a good shirt dress and it looks like they are going to be big this summer!








I also managed to get these Primark long tan boots for £1.99 plus postage.  I know they are only Primark so not a major bargain but one of my friends has these boots and the cost her £20.00 plus these are like new!



Do you buy and sell much on ebay?

January sales


Hiya everyone and happy new year (sorry its a bit late! ) 

I just thought I would do a quick post to show you a couple of my January sales buys.

I did place an order with ASOS on Boxing Day but was extremely disappointed when it arrived and it all went back.

I did have some luck when I went shopping on the High Street though, in Office I bought these tan leather boots with a gift card I had they were £95 reduced to £45.00
I love these boots ♥



Then in Mango I purchased this little summer dress.   I know its not anywhere near summer yet but this was only £8.99 and I love the print.  I can imagine wearing this with nude wedges sporting a lovely tan :) 



In Topshop I purchased this little nude collar top for £8.00


I also ordered these shoes from Dorothy Perkins as I just love the scallop effect.  These are new in and not in the sale.



I am very disallusioned with shopping at the moment there seems to be hardly anything I have really loved for a while now, even my beloved Primark is useless at the moment.   In fact I have found Primark utterly rubbish for the past 3-4 months! 

I cannot wait for the shops to start getting their spring/summer clothes in now.

What are your thoughts on the High Street at the moment?
