Recent Purchases

Hello beauties!
Who's been enjoying this weather? Me, Me, ME!!!! It is absolutely boiling in Nottingham, and I caught a bit of the sun. There is nothing better than having tanned skin and enjoying a beautiful weather. What I got up to those past few days is shopping, working and hitting the gym! I am determined to get very fit over the Summer just in time for my first girly holiday in August!
Anyway, here are pics of a few things I recently bought.
My little sister is obsessed with loom bands at the moment so I decided to buy some myself!!
Primark sunnies are the best. The prices vary from £1-£3. The white aviators were £1 and the mirror effect aviators were £2. 2 pairs for £3!!! BARGAIN!
Birkenstocks are a bit expensive, so I opted for the cheaper way and got some look alike sandals for only £5 from Primark. I've been wearing them every day since the day I got them and that was over a week ago. They are extremely comfortable.
This gorgeous handbag cost me £35 from River Island. Pricey but totally worth it!
I found this camisole in Vero Moda and had to try it on ASAP. It looks great on and weirdly suits my new hair colour! It was only £10, an amazing bargain especially as they accept NUS card so I got 10% off the bill.
This lovely skater skirt was reduced to £12 from I think £25 or £30 which is also a total bargain. It's great for this Summer and will look fantastic with a tan.
I've wanted to buy a 90's string top for a while now. I had a look around a local Miss Selfridge store and couldn't find any that I liked off the website, and you know what it's like when it comes to online shopping - it doesn't always turn out so great and something might not suit you. So I went into Topshop and found this lovely white top for only £6!!! I tried it on and really loved it. I will definitely purchase this top in more colours!
I've never tried Topshop's make-up but it would be a sin if I didn't buy these items for 50 PENCE EACH. I found this eye crayon in gold, a lip marker (lip stain) in red, and two sets of nail varnishes in variety of colours. I shall do a review on those products very soon.
This gorgeous velvet headband was reduced to £1 from £6 which is a total bargain for Topshop. Personally, I don't think I would have paid £6 for a headband as it's just an accessory.
Lots of love,

Summer is coming!!!

Hi guys!
We can actually feel Summer arriving. It's getting warmer day by day, which means that we can show off a bit of our bodies now hehe! ;)
Personally, I prefer not to expose myself too much as my skin should only be on display for myself and my other half. Also, my daddy doesn't like me wearing skimpy clothes!!
I have recently gone out on a Starbucks date with my auntie and had a lovely catch up! I haven't seen her since November, so thought it would be nice to go out. The fact that she's the same age as me is even better :) We had so much to talk about!! I experienced the weirdest thing that day. Some random foreign exchange student started hitting on me! I have never been hit on in public before! I thought it was the strangest thing ever haha! It must have been Kate looking extra grown up that day ;)
I ordered a Mango and Passion Fruit Iced drink because I was out of breath and the weather was so warm! Kate ordered a camomile tea, which was also quite nice and refreshing.
I will definitely be taking Kieran out on a little Starbucks date as he's never had one before!! Shocker!!!!
I wanted to get my nails done at a salon for a long time now, but it's so expensive and I'm saving up so I had to hold back with splashing on getting French tip acrylics and opted for my own French mani! I used my Nailene set and that's the outcome:
Lots of love,
