Meal For Three

After a Sex and the City'esk meal last week with my girls, we decided to follow it up this week with another meal. After deciding where we wanted to go I wanted to channel Carrie ones again and opted for my White River Island loose shirt, charity shop barging skirt, H&M blazer, and Forever 21 necklace I was all set to leave.

After a lovely meal we decided to head to the cinema, something we haven't done in a while to carry on our tradition of watching the Paranormal Activity together. Huge disappointment, but o won't go into that.

The Open Road

Yesterday I headed down to Southampton, my moms home to visit all of her family. Although I live over two hours away I still can't help but be close to them due to the way I was brought up. Southampton is my second home and one of them places I could spend all my time at and makes me happy. So as soon as my mom said we were heading down, I booked off work and packed my suitcase skipping to the car in excitement.

While I'm here it's full of visiting family, new babies, shopping, family meals, and watching Peppa Pig with my youngest cousin.

A Date With the Ladies

So today I headed to town with my lovely girls to have dinner at Bella Italia, (amazing!) and ended up going shopping. First stop was out meeting put which just so happened to be outside Hollister. Now I am not a Hollister fan at all, although I love the shop, the smell, and defiantly the man staff, their clothes just isn't my taste. But one section I couldn't stay away from was the perfume section, which wasn't as great as I though it would be. One thing which did attract me was their body mists, which I immediately started straying. With only three scents it wasn't hard deciding which body mists I wanted to take home with me, Laguna Beach, and Solana Beach, and with an offer of 2 for £15 wow!
What I wore
Dress - Forever 21
Belt - Primark
Necklace Forever 21
Due to not going out for dinner enough, my friend Angie decided she wanted a Sex and the City style meal, this meant dress to impress.

Today I had an appointment with my doctors, and while traveling there I decided I finally wanted to change my hair colour. This decition has taken months, after finally getting my natural hair colour back I decided I wanted to add some lighter shades to give it my depth and texture and the only way for this was blonde. So I headed to my Superdrug and skipped home hoping this would turn out right.

OOTD (Outfit of the Day) #5

Dress - Internacional
Necklace - TopShop
Shoes - New Look
Bag - New Look
Today I headed to town to do a little more shopping, and by shoppingI mean christmas shopping. Yes some people may think its way too early to even be thinking about that but this year I want to be good and get it all out the way and not stress about what I have left to buy.
Although I set out with my hopes high and optimistic, and Jasper my skeleton I came back with nothing. Yes nothing. It seems as though my heart was ready for the gift of giving but my head and stomach was still too ill from my reflux I've had since last December. Though I am slowly getting better the realization that I can't have Reflux anymore and potentially having an experience which means we could have found the course but my situation just got a lot more serious is slowly creeping in.

Jeans - PacSun
Top - Miss Guided
Shoes - New Look
Belt Primark
To make myself feel better I headed to the pub to meet my friends for a couple of J20's, yes not my normal cup of tea but who can resist a glitter drink.

Cheeky Haul

One of the bad parts about uni is traveling home, although it takes me close to an hour and a half to get home, waiting for the bus can be the worse part. Partly due to the huge New Look my bus stop happens to be outside.

While waiting for the bus I decided to pop into the shop and find some shoes I have been lusting after for a while now. After finding the shoes and also picked up some other gems.
Jumper, Shirt, Bag, and shoes - New Look

Paired together
I wore this outfit with my new Burnt orange that I picked up online at Miss Selfridge in the sale.

Holding on to summer

While loans are coming through students everywhere are spending, except this student. Though I have a deep burning urge to grab anything I can and spend, I find that for one the first times I need to stop and think do you really need to spend?

While I try to fight this ongoing battle I popped into boots on my way home from uni to find myself making a couple of shopping mistakes.

First I headed to Maybelline and picked up the one by one volume express mascara. Although I had heard many good reviews about this mascara, I just haven't found that love click of rushing my make up just top put it on.

Next my first mistake, I headed over to Barry M looking for a nice light red/pink, and I picked up a lip paint in 151. My favourite purchase in a long time! This lip paint just says summer buy is still soft enough to wear through fall too. When buying I didn't realise the packaging had been taken off and the tip of the lipstick had been crushed. Returning back to the shop it could not be returned due to the fact the packaging had been taken off, the reason I was taking it back.

Then I got distracted by one of the sands of the Barry M Vampire look. Loving this trend I was desperate to get the lip stick and I grabbed one straight away (my second mistake.) When got home I opened the lip paint to find out I had only picked up a black lip paint 37, Yes black. This is a lipstick which will be kept in my make up bag for that very rare occasion when black lipstick is needed... Whenever that may be.
