First off I apologise for the lack of posts recently, I've been really busy over the Jubilee weekend and am now pretty ill with some sort of cold/flu type thing. Its actually driving me mad now, I hate being ill! I hope everyone else is well and had a good weekend/long weekend if you're in the UK! I celebrated the Jubilee first at a dinner party on Saturday night and then me and boyfriend did a massive BBQ for his family which was nice. Yesterday was my sister's 21st, unfortunately we were both pretty ill and spent most of the day on the sofa watching dvds, I had to go to Bristol in the morning for some work training, I'm an ambassador for my university so in a couple of weeks i'll be doing a summer school, which will be good but having to travel yesterday feeling like death warmed up was not fun! Anyway my sister had a good day regardless and didn't seem too disappointed that she spent the day inside with the tissues so thats alright. Anyway last week I did a bit of shopping so I thought I show you a couple of bits I got. Nothing amazing but I just wanted to write a post.
The gemini necklace was one of my sister's birthday presents, I found it in Topshop and really liked it, its simple but cute and also it doesn't look horribly cheap like some of the jewellery in there, it was £7 which isn't too bad and the chain is a good length, I hate it when they are really short! My sister liked it which is good!
The nail varnish was from Urban Outfitters and was £6, so a similar price to the Topshop polishes, i'm undecided about whether I like this or not to be honest. Its called 'Twinkie' and its a clear polish with tons of holographic glitter in and pastel pink and turquoise stars. It looks so pretty in the packaging which is what made me buy it but actually getting the stars out and on to your nails is a bit of a mission! They don't stick well to the brush so I have a feeling that the more I use it the more i'll just end up with a load of stars at the bottom of the jar which is disappointing! However it does look lovely over pastel lilac nail polishes! Oh you will need a good topcoat over this one, otherwise the stars will disappear within a couple of hours!
Okay now i'm a bit ring mad to be honest, and I should probably stop buying them, however I couldn't resist this one! Yes its huge as you can see from the below photo.
However I love it! It was £2.99 from H&M, absolute bargain if you ask me, it feels weighty, not cheap and the stone is set nicely and doesn't sound hollow or loose if you tap it. I love the detail on the silver (e.g. some kind of metal that looks silver) as well. I've worn it a lot already so i'm really happy with that!
So thats just a couple of bits i've purchased recently, I will hopefully be feeling better soon so I can post more, me and boyfriend are meant to be going to Brighton this weekend if i'm better so i'll hopefully get some photos and maybe do a bit of shopping so I can post about that! I'm pretty excited to go to the lanes to shop and to try some of the vegetarian restuarants there! If anyone has any suggestions of where we should go let me know! Hope everyone is having a good day, ooh and remember to enter my giveaway if you haven't already!
