TAG: What's in My Bag

The lovely Sophie tagged me to show you guys the contents of my bag!

So first off, the bag itself...

Now that I'm on summer holidays I can change my bag around more often and according to my outfit, so the bag I've been using recently is from Accessorize and amazingly only cost £10 (it's a long story hehe!)

And here's what I carry around....

Make-Up Bag from Tesco
Evian water - this is so handy to carry around because it's only 33ml
Handbag tissues - I'm obsessed with handbags and I was very happy to get these tissues from Father Christmas last year!!
Purse from New Look

Umbrella from Primark - I walk everywhere and have learnt from experience that even when it's bright sunshine, always carry an umbrella! urghh England :(
Eyedrops - I suffer from hayfever so these are my saviour!
Sunniess - LOVING the weather in the UK at the moment, and hoping it continues.
Half packet of gum
Hairbrush and Notebook from Artbox - if you haven't heard of Artbox then you should definitely check them out, they sell the cutest stationery.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what's in my bag lol.

I wasn't sure how people to tag so decided on 5 -
- Jade
- Caz
- Marie
- Nicola
- Madeline

Have a wonderful weekend in the sun! xo

OOTD & Update

Hey guys,

I'VE FINISHED MY EXAMS!! Woop! :D haha I'm so glad to have got my GCSEs done but I'm also feeling a little sad. I've been at my current school for about 8 years, so the thought of moving to a different school for 6th form is sad, exciting and nerve-racking! I'm sad that I'm leaving some of my friends there and won't see them every day :( I'm excited because my new school seems SO much better than my current school and I'm nervous because although a lot of girls from my school are moving there as well, I've just found out that I'm the only new girl in my class :S
Anyway I'm sure it's normal to feel these mixed emotions so for now I'm just going to enjoy my LOOOONGGG SUMMER!!

I also wanted to show you my outfit from Saturday. I went out for my friend's birthday, and even though the sun was out it was surprisingly cold :(. Here's what I wore...

Cardi - Primark
Top - Miss Selfridge
Scarf - Matalan
Skirt - Zara
Leggings - M&S
Sandals - Tesco

By the way, thank you so much for all the "Good Luck" comments. I really appreciate it and now I'm just waiting on the results!! *Fingers crossed!*

Also you may have noticed that I've reached 100 followers!

I never imagined that there would 100 people wanting to follow and read this blog, so it means a lot that I've reached 100 followers! I was thinking of doing a giveaway to celebrate but I will let you know nearer the time :)

Hope you're all well and I'll be updating more often...I promise! xo

Beads - Given as a gift so unknown!

I also wore a teal fitted blazer from H&M but didn't manage to get a pic!

Now onto the make-up...

The Barry M dazzle dust in Mushroom. What do you think?

On my lips I mixed Bourjois Eau de Gloss (rose vitamine) with Avon Colortrend (be mine)

And I thought I'd show you the end of the Avon lipstick because it's shaped as a cute :)

So overall I wore:
17 Hide Away Concealer
Avon Invisible Light Concealer
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Avon Kajalstick in Purple
Benefit eyebright (yes I picked one up in glamour mag too hehe!)
Barry M Dazzle Dust in Mushroom

More Buys, Help & Almost 100 followers!

Hey girls,
Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I had a lot of exams but I'm now enjoying the weekend and the fact I have only 4 more exams to go before I'm finished! :D

Following my last ever Maths paper on Friday morning I decided to go shopping and of course I managed to pick up a few things....

Shorts, £12.99 and Top, £5.99 Both H&M

Skirt, £9.99 Zara

Hairclips, £1.99 H&M and Barry M Dazzledust in shade 51 Mushroom (I used my free voucher from More, but they are usually £4.50)

I also wanted to ask your help - I'm searching for a pair of simple, heeled brown/tan sandals for under £40. I remember seeing loads last summer and now that I would like a pair I can't find anything anywhere. I'm not a fan of the gladiator or lace up styles which I seem to see everywhere, so if anyone has seen something then please let me know! :)

And finally, I'm currently at 96 followers so almost 100! I'm amazed to be honest at the number of you guys who are following, reading what I've got to say and leaving lovely comments....I really appreciate it so a big THANK YOU!! :D

Enjoy the weekend! xo

Half Term Buys

Hi there,
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and enjoying the nice weather again! For me this weekend is the end of half term...I'm back at school on Monday and have a lovely week consisting of 7 exams (3 of which are on one day!) :(
I haven't done much revision which is a bit stupid on my part, but as you can see from my haul here I've had much more fun!
These are the things I've bought over the last week;

(Image - Google)
Tesco, £4.99. I've been on the look out for a new mascara, and saw my friend wearing this the other day. It looked amazing on her so will have to give this a go.

Retro lilac swimsuit, Tesco £12

Pretty floral blouse, Tesco £8

Navy striped dress, Primark £9

50s style dress, Primark £7.50 (love a bargain!)

So my Summer wardrobe is beginning to come together...I just hope the weather is good enough to wear it! There are a couple more things I'd like to get, and I'm sure I'll end up buying stuff I don't need but we'll see :)

Enjoy! xo
