Littlest Things

I thought I'd show you some of my recent purchases I've made.

Firstly my new loafers. I love them, but I can't believe how badly made they are! After only wearing them 3 times, the stitching has already come away on the left shoe which is incredibly annoying. Might have to email and complain! They also took 3 months to arrive, got to hate H&M online a bit for that.

H&M £6.99 (or something - I used that amazing £10 + £5 voucher code they had on in May)

This looks dreadful on the hanger but its actually really nice on. I used to have a really similar Motel crop top like this but I sold it on ebay during a very dire lack of money spell. So I was made up when I found this in Forever 21 in Florida for 10 dollars I love leopard print!

Really lovely leopard print bag from Love Couture again from Florida, couldn't resist this at $20, plus its leopard print!

more jewellery
Silver Crosses Necklace - Forever 21
Gold Cross Necklace - Forever 21 (ridiculously tarnished now)
Black Cross Necklace (spot a trend...) - Primark 
Circle Ring - VIPXO

Now a couple of things that aren't that new, but I treasure and wear on a daily basis..!

Vivienne Westwood Melissa flats - £60. 

I love Vivienne Westwood shoes and I just can't get enough of them. I love these flats, but I have a hard time keeping them on my feet as they're so slippery  (damn rubber!). I still wear them a lot though because they are so pretty. I get so many compliments on these, they really add some excitement to an outfit. I actually own 3 pairs of the heels too:

Missing the Cherries as I've left them in my flat in Manchester. All possibly around £60 -80 - Ed bought me them for various birthdays. 

Lastly, one of my favourite rings:

River Island @ Asos - £12.99 (used the ASOS groupon voucher from ages ago)

I am so skint at the moment that I doubt I'll be able to make any purchases for a while. I start my job tomorrow, going to be thrown in at the deep end because my boss is going on holiday the day after. I'll really have to fit in with the group straight away and hopefully make a good impression as more than likley they'll be reporting back to the manager whilst she's away! Eek! I'm really panicked about my wardrobe at the moment. I feel like I've not got enough clothes to last a full working week, definitely going to have to recycle some old favourite outfits. Thankfully its casual wear so I won't have to buy any office gear.

I'm going to make a weekly feature on the blog about things I am loving at the moment, whether it be music, make up etc. wise. So here's my first one:

  1. One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful I've been eagerly awaiting their first single for ages and this didn't disappoint.  My music taste could sometimes be mistaken for a 10 year old girls. I adore the Jonas Brothers and went to see them front row in November 2009...  I can has Louis Tomlinson pls?
  2. The Glee Project. I got completely and utterly ADDICTED to this programme in America. I have to admit I went off Glee big time during the last few episodes of the last season for some apparent reason, but this show is just amazing, probably my favourite reality tv show ever. I've become too obsessed with Cameron Mitchell, I think you should all check out his cover of Coldplay - Shiver. 
  3. e.l.f Cosmetics. I recently bought a massive haul during their 50% sale and I pretty much love all the products, especially the Under Eye Concealer and Highlighter, it is brilliant. e.l.f post coming soon!
  4. Fantasy Football. I did this last year and became very competitive and obsessive with it during the end of the season. Determined to keep on the ball (lol) this year and get a decent score! I unashamedly love football (infact I'm waiting for the Manchester United game - team of choice obvs) and I'm pretty made up the season started up again yesterday. My team name on FF is Hoolo Kitty, need I say more...
I need to grab some food, blog for Superdrug, prepare for my gruelling working week, catch up on Shooting Stars and try and get into Angry Boys - one episode in and I'm not convinced. Does it get better?!
