Accessories haul

Hey lovely ladies

Well here is my next instalment of my shopping trips that have taken place over the last few months. This is my favourite category accessories.... :o) I do seriously have a problem with acessories and currently bracelets seem to be at the top of mylist of obsessions....

I think you will see that I have suddenly got into GOLD in a big way lol...

So enough waffle here is what I am currently lovin!

Gold bracelets - Part I
I loveeee these. All of these fab bracelets are from eBay and are less than £12 each. I think the leather type cuff is very similar to a Marc Jacobs and it comes in lots of different colours. If you want any of the sellers names please let me know..

Gold bracelets - Part II
Top bracelet - HM - and I think this was about £6
Bottom bracelet - French Connection (got for Xmas so can't remember price sorry)

Cuffs
Spike cuff - EBay - £4 approx
Big hexagon cuff - HM - £5 approx
Gold/silver cuff - EBay - (can't remember but let me know if you want EBayer name)

Necklaces
Left - Dorthy Perkins - £1 yes £1 think it was a mistake but I am not complaining
Right - Dorthy Perkins - £5 for the set in the sale so happy with both purchases :)

Clutch - ASOS
Can't remember how much sorry as it was an Xmas pressie but they do still have them on there.

Clutch - Zara - £30
I loveeee this bag.I have the black one (will show you this in my faves) and saw the summer version and had to get it as I know these bad boys sell out fast

Clutch - Republic - £10
Again I got this just after Xmas so I got it in the sale but you may find them on eBay

Shoes - Matalan
I think these were about £14. They are a nice height for every day (not had chance to wear them yet cos the weather is cold and stupid!

Shoes - All these shoes are from New Look and were about £20 each
I have had all these shoes for a couple of months and became addicted to these as they are a nice height and heel and are pretty comfy for a night out and loveeee all the colours..


So there you have it, the next instalment of my mammoth shopping trip. As you can see I have had some of these things for a long while as some were Xmas pressies. If you want to know eBay sellers or any other details please let me know.

Will be posting OOTD v soon featuring some of these items.

Im back after 8 months - Primark Haul

Hey ladies

Well firstly I just wanted to apologise to everyone that does actually reads my blog as it has been such a long time since I have posted. To be honest I have had a year from hell and not really felt much like blogging. Pretty much every aspect of life has been hit hard (which I wont bore you with) but the finale came back in February when my Daddy passed away unexpediently which was horrendous...  As you can imagine my heart has not been in it...

However, I have decided to try and focus on something that I enjoy and thought what better way to start was with a haul!!! Even better a Primark Haul as I know so many of you love Primark.... I have another 3 more posts lined up of lots of lovely things that I have purchased over the last 4 months which I will share with you soon...

So without further ado lets get to it...

(OMG it has been so long I can't remember how to add pics lol)...

Royal Blue Blazer - £15
This is such a cool little blazer, I have seen so many bloggers/you tubers with the minty green ones which is fab, but decided to go with the bright option..

Floral Blazer - £20
Now personally I think this is pretty pricey for Primak but I loved it. I will say that I find that their blazers come up a little large so I had to get a smaller size in both of these..
Playsuit - £5
OMG was so happy with this. This little playsuit was all on it's own and had no tag. It fit like a glove and when I got to the till they only charged me £5 so I was super duper happy :)..  

Shirts - £10 each
I love these shirts. I bought the pink first and went back for the next one which is actually emerald green in real life. After wearing it one weekend 3 of my friends went out and bought them. They have like 10 colours in them and the sort of thing that looks so much better on..


Shorts - £11 approx
I bought these about 3 months ago as I went to Thailand back in March so did my holiday shopping early. Again pretty pricey for Primark but they have lots of little pearls on them which you can't see and fit like a glove. Def worth the money..

Jeans - £13
Yes I have also jumped in the pastel/neon bandwagon. Again like lots of peeps I felt it was not worth spending tons on a loud pair of jeans but have to say they fit me so well and they do a short leg (I am 5ft 1half inches (yes the half is v important lol) they do tons of colours but not many in my size/leg length but v interested in the mint and lilac ones..

Belt - £2.50
How much does this look like a Ted Baker rip off.... love this and such a bargain!!

Shorts - £14
Wow bought these back in January I think. Love, love, love them but not had chance to wear them YET!!

Skirt - £14
Again bought in January and love it, all on it's own and looked pretty cute with a black corset as it looks likes a dress..

Corset type tops - £5 each
These are fab, I have 3 of them and they are such a good buy and would encourage everyone to get them as they look fab under blazers. I have show here the white and black but do have the neon pink as well and want to get more colours. They have that hold you in material that is every girls best friend :)..


Dress - £6
Sorry but what blogger/you tuber does not have this dress lol. I saw it on a 100 channels and had to have it. Love it but will say it is a little short even for my tiny height but sooo cute.. 

Dress - £5
Again sooo happy about this one. I had my eye on this for a while and it was reduced from £13 to £5 and it is super cute. Def looks better on..

Shirt - £10
My latest addition, tried lots of Peter Pan collars on and decided on this one. Still not sure as I wanted a summer colour (not sure why, as it has not stopped raining) but it is cute..

Flip flops - £6
LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE these so much. They also do them in pink but they fit funny so will go back and try them again as they are such a bargain and super duper cute..

Flip flops - £6
Again v v pretty and they do them in yellow in our store as well but thought these would work well with all the denim that I seemed to have purchased of late lol..

Phew so there you have it... my first post in 8 months. I hope you enjoy this. I had bought some of these items a few months ago but pretty sure most of them are still in store.

I plan to do lots of OOTD as well as I have not really done these before as hard to take pics but hopefully I will get round that as well as I really want to get back in to my blog.

So let me know what you think and would love to see any of you latest purchases.

Where have a I been?????

Hi ladies

Well firstly I have say a HUGE apology for the fact I have not blogged in over 2 months. I have had some personal issues and so much going on that my head has been spinning.

Anyway wanted to do a little post of some of the things that have been taking up so much of my time....

First up

Rachel's hen weekend - Magaluf - June 2011
One of my mates is getting married in a couple of weeks and the brides sister and I planned all the tasks and did all the extra things to make even more special. As you can imagine with 20 girls it was one to remember. If you would like to see the tasks let me know. We all had t shirts with our names on, mine was "Turbo Tongue Tracy"!!!! we had a themed sailor night and of course she had to have a little veil....

Here are a few pics:

Our Tshirts

The hen

Some of the lovely ladies from the hen weekend

Playing about on the beach. Quite impressed we managed this lol

Next up

Work trip to Chennai India - July 2011
Work has been MENTAL!!!! like seriously busy. I was asked to train a new team in India and had 2 months of really hard work, from writing testing material, testing, writing training packs, training and assessing. This has been the toughest work project I have ever done. I went with 2 friends from work who were a scream. I had lots of challenges whilst I was working away and it certainly one I won't forget...

In the airport with Jay and Lucie

Our pool - shame we did not get to see it much lol

At work

One of the many places the India team took us to

Rachel's hen night - Maidstone - August 2011
Again I helped my friend Teresa arrange Rachel's local hen night. I thought it would be fun to do a bunny theme as everyone could get involved. From the full monty outfit to just a set of ears everyone joined in. Again a good turn out of 28 ladies and with Rachel having to do Mr & Mrs and 13 tasks lots of fun was had by all....

My bunny girl outfit

The hen Rachel - we planned her outfit and thankfully she loved it

A couple of bunnies, Lisa, Lisa, me and Teresa  

So there you have it. All these bits and bobs have taken so much of my time up. Life is still all over the place but I will get back to mosting more frequently so please bear with me.  I have already bought my outfit for the wedding so will do an OOTD very soon.

Hope you enjoyed these little piccies

Love and hugs

April-May Haul Part 3 of 3

Hey ladies

Finally the last part of my haul. I am so sorry if this has bored you. As you can see I had a complete shopping binge and just wanted to share. I think that may be it for a little while :o( but I did have lots of fun hehe

H&M - £7.99
I love the colour and pattern of this cropped top. I would generally wear it with a vest underneath but it is long enough to be able to wear it alone without showing your tummy.

H&M - £7.99
Just a little vest top but again super cute for summer and I do love a little bit of animal print

H&M - £12.99 (I think)
This is quite a boring purchase but a good staple for summer and it really has a nice neckline

H&M - £14.99
These shorts are part of the new eco friendly line. They have the brocade pattern on them so just makes them a little more interesting then just plain white shorts.

H&M - £6.99
As you know I do love a bangle but all these little bangles are all connected so it keeps them all together

Vibe - £24.99
I finally done it I bought a jumpsuit. Decided to ease in gently with a black one and this has a nice ruffle front which looks really cute with a thick belt round the middle.

Lipsy - £35
I loveeeeeeeeee this top, looks really cute with a bright bandeau underneath as the arm holes are low.

River Island - £26.99
Even though I loved everything that I bought this was my favourite purchase out of everything I bought. I have had real problems finding nice going out tops that are not to floaty so this one being nude with a detachable brooch on the shoulder is prefect (see FoxyLocks review to see me wearing it).

River Island - £20
My friend bought these and did not like them on. I tried them and loved them. They look so cute worn casual with gold flipflops and white vest top or dressed up with wedges and a nude blouse.

Select - £12
I really like maxi dresses but as I am so short I struggled to find them to fit me. I just wanted something plain to wear with a denim jacket with lots of gold bangles and gold flipflops and this did a job and was a bargain at £12.

and that was it for my gigantic haul. I hope you liked this and would love to see any new purchases you have so I can copy them hehe.
