First of all - I got loads (read way too many) of the new MUA nail polishes. You can read the whole MUA/Essie affair here, and although I do not agree with MUA copyin' Essie (or any other brand really) to such an extent, they are cheap, cheerful & are ideal to pop into your handbag, pack into a suitcase for summer holiday or just have a few shades up on your dressing table remindin' you that you wanted to paint your nails in a happy colour.
The other day I went to get something for Justin in a shop called Outfit (not sure how common these are - basically it's like a little Debenhams with brands like Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge and that sort) and picked up this pretty chunky necklace from Dorothy Perkins for just a fiver. Ya know, one of those things that are just too good to be left on a hanger.
Do you sometimes buy random things while you're food shopping? No? Well, I find myself doin' so quite a lot recently - it seems to be the only stores that are open after my work hours *yet another le sigh*. The other day I picked up the old Taylor Swift CD. Yup, I did. Strange how I went through a stage when I threw away all my CD's (saved them as mp3) and then I got struck by loads of luck (read in a sarcastic/devastated voice) and all my cyber data got deleted. At that point I sort of had to go back to real CD's and started rebuilding my collection. Yeah, I like Taylor Swift's song, so what?!
When I went to Czech Republic for a quick trip, I picked up this Dermacol 8 in 1 BB cream. True, bought it a while ago but haven't really tried it yet - waiting for sun to come out to be able to fully appreciate the whole 8 in 1 multi-functionality. Will see how that goes!
Now, I've also picked up a few fashion bits & bobs. A chunky coral jumper and cardigan duo (these chunky knits are the jumpers!) and a pair of print trousers for £4 from H&M! And a bit funky blazer with stripes and cartoon roses off E-bay (originally from Arc).
Finally - this lace handbag beauty. It's cream with golden toned detailing and it's covered in pretty lace! It cost about a fiver & is off E-bay. Gonna look proper over the top girly with it but hey - why not! You can buy it here or just search for a 'lace handbag'.
Have you bought something new lately to make yourself spring-ready?
