Recent Spends

I'm gonna breeeze right past the fact I've been a terrible blogger these past few weeks, and get right back into things. So hello, good to see you've been keeping okay. Got rid of that cold yet? Oh dear, it won't shift will it?!

Now I've been shopping, as you might've guessed, or investing because that sounds less like I'm actually spending all my money. I hit the sales on Boxing Day (Just so you know, I'm NOT 'one of those girls', and I'm categorically, definitely not a Next boxing day shopper). I was working in town in the afternoon, so popped in early to see what I could find. Also, me and Lil went to London very recently for the Company Magazine Blogging Forum (seperate post to follow soon), and so we spent the day prior gallivanting around London, hence another delicious opportunity to spend money I dont have (:

So here, my lovelies, is what I bought:

   001// Topshop Plain Sweat Dress from their New collection which I fell in love with a few weeks ago  but managed to pick up on my recent trip to Oxford St. SO happy with it (: can't wait to wear it with  tights, chunky heeled ankle boots & a big statement necklace. It's such a simple basic, you can't go wrong dressing it up or down!

   002// UO Grey & Burgandy Winter Floppy Hat. Wanted one for aaaages! Saw this in the Urban Outfitters sale with 50% off & I had to have it. Been wearing it with my fave lipstick (also featured below).

 003// 17's Supreme Shine Lipstick in 'Rich'  Okay so my favourite shade of lipstick this winter by far! I hate to say it, but it is most definitely rich in colour. It stays really well, will take you from morning til night with only 1 re-application. Couldn't recommend it more, would just suggest lip-balming your face up prior to using it as it can dry out your lips a little in the cold weather!

   004// Cream Sleeveless Lace Top with Beaded Collar. My bargain from River Island, only size 14-18 left on the rail. River Island sizing team must have made a booboo because I'm a petite 8 and this fits like a glove. So happy with it!

005// New Look Blazer in 'Oxblood'. Matches my new hat & my fave lippy. Possibly overworking the oxblood trend a bit now!

006// Forever21 Polka Dot Sleeveless Shirt or as I like to call it, my 1950's housewife top. The chap's gonna love the 'get back in the kitchen' vibe this one has!

So these are a few of my favourite recent purchases. Sadly not all of them still available, but the lipstick shade you can buy instore, and the other stuff possibly aswell. I also bought a black, pleated midi skirt from Republic in the sale & a galaxy print midi dress (that I forgot to photograph), which I wore to the #companybloggersevent. So you can see pictures of that in my next post.. Oooh cliffhanger?
 Not really.
