Haul Time // Primark and Matalan

After not shopping for over 2 weeks (I know right) I finally made it to Lakeside to get my shop on. I managed to only spend about £30 and I am very proud of that. However, I also managed to pop into my local Matalan store and take advantage of the further reductions. Here are a few of the things I picked up!

AW13 at Matalan

Hi there!
As you may, or may not know, I used to work at my local Matalan store. It was just a tad handy working there because you could see the new stock as soon as it came in and, occasionally, when I was unpacking the new stock I would comment on every single item I could get my hands on (it both entertained and annoyed those around me). Whilst I was working I never really found much that I liked. Yes, there were a few gems that I loved but for the most part I didn't spend a lot of my wages in store. Since I have left (almost a year ago!) it seems like they have had an overhaul on their designs and the past three times I've visited I've ended up spending stupid amounts of money. The new AW13 preview has been released on and these are my fave bits (all photos are either from or

I've been on holiday - Hastings!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in over a week. I've been on holiday this week to Hastings! Here are just a few of my snaps from the week down South. It was really lovely down there and I ended up seeing three castles that I will never, ever live in (because they were ruins rather than due to me not marrying a prince. I still have time for that). I managed to get read a book and a half too - review to come!

Review: Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent

Hi there! I have been using this product for the past week and LOVE it. I know that it is mentioned time and time again on every blog under the sun but I thought I'd give my view. In a nutshell - I love it and can't believe I have put off buying it for so long.

Oh dear, I've been shopping again.

Hello there! This is just a quick post of some of the things I've treated myself to this past month (excluding T supplies!). I said I was going to cut down on my shopping and I have - a lot! Well, kind of. Anyway, here we go!

OOTD // Let's work

Hi, these are a couple of old photos that I took about a month ago. I had a job interview to work at my local Topshop and unfortunately I didn't get the job. I'm not surprised at all - but at least I got an interview! I thought the interview went really well but I am definitely not Topshop size and I'd only be there for about 2 months. With those two points going against me I wasn't expecting anything from it but it's all experience! I go on holiday next week so at least I haven't had the stress of trying to book it off!

OOTD // But I know, I know, I know I know that you're gonna be okay anyway

Hi guys, I haven't posted an outfit in a while! It seems that I am just recycling outfits that work at the moment. I'm not leaving the house much other than for driving lessons and who dresses up for those?
