Midweek update 22/03/12

01. With university, shopping and driving lessons, this week has flown by so far. Today consists of tidying my absolute tip of a room so I have more space for all my purchases. I've also been clearing out my wardrobe - another excuse to go shopping to fill it back up, not that I need one!

02. My second Joliebox arrived this morning and I almost went flying down the stairs to get to the door in time to get it from the postman. My near accident was seriously worth it though! *Spoiler* This month's box is the first to have all  full sized products! I can't wait to get a review done later this week.

03. I went on yet another shopping spree yesterday, this time my excuse was to find things for my holidays as I'm going to Spain in just over 2 weeks! I got this lovely jumpsuit from River Island which I could wear either on it's own or over bikini's on the beach as a cover up as well as a cute little bracelet. I also got some cheapo glaidator sandals and yet another zip up hoody from Primark (don't judge me!) I even managed to pick up some bits and bobs from Boots including some exfoliating mitts and hair removal cream. Overall a pretty good haul for just over an hours work! I'll try and get some pictures up later.

Have you been up to anything exciting this week?

Weekend Wishlist #1


01.  I saw this just tonight in the 'just in' section and instantly fell in love. I feel it's the perfect mix of cute but quirky - I've got to say the cut out back and skirt pattern make this dress. This would perfect for when I go away in just under three weeks time, the only thing I'm wondering about before purchasing it is whether it will fit me right around the waist - having a big rib cage is a pain in the arse and means my waist is slightly lower than some dresses cater for.

02. I've had my eye on these since they popped up on the River Island website a couple of weeks and now I'm really regretting not getting them when I could as they've sold out in every size except 3 and 8, talk about extremes! Going to keep my eye out to see whether they get any more in stock, they are also available in a lighter version but they just weren't the same.. I loved these cause of the leopard print bow!

03. I've had an obsession with anchors since I was tiny so was squealing when I saw this.. until I realised this too was out of stock. I would've worn this oversized chunky necklace over a plain top as anything else would be too cluttered. Again I'll be keeping my eye out to see if they get any back in stock or I can find an alternative.

04. After recently returning to my ways of being a nail polish junkie I've been waiting to try out the Topshop polishes as I've heard good things about them. I thought this was the sweetest nude shade which would be perfect for wearing at work where I'm not supposed to wear any. Natural, but really really pretty.

Sunday Update 18/03/12

01. Well it's Mother's Day and my first proper post. Bought my Mum this cute blouse from Next, think I may be pinching it at some point, as well as some flowers. Spent the day with family over and stuffing myself with a Roast Dinner. Now it's time for a much needed lazy afternoon with the odd glass of wine to end the day.

02. This week has gone really fast actually. After having recovered from some god awful cold earlier in the week I had yet another driving lesson Tuesday, which once again went well, which I followed by moving in with my boyfriend for the week at his Dad's to house sit and look after the cat whilst he was away. That was a great experience. Being honest, it may have been weird at first being together 24/7 but it was really nice and I can definitely see us moving together hopefully in the not too distant future. I also managed to finish the last of my assignments for my first year at university which is a relief. Bring on the exams then I'm done for the year!

03. Like probably everyone else at the moment I have a thing for leather, whether it be faux or real, and whilst I've got this H&M faux leather skater dress from before Christmas, I missed out on there pleated skirt. However I luckily managed to get my hands on  the last available version by Oasis from here. Hopefully that'll come in the next few days as I can't wait to try it out.

04. Finally managed to fit time in to get a trim too, and after spending maybe 6 months or more trying out a centre parting I finally decided to go back to my trademark side fringe and get my layers put in a bit more. I'm feeling better than ever. I love how something as simple as a change in hairstyle can make you feel better about how you look, even if it is for a short period!
How has your week been? Made any exciting purchases?
