Dublin Shopping Buys :)

Hiii Love-aah-lies :]

I went to dublin for a few days last week with my mum and sister and wee literally shopped most of the time .. it was so exhausting :( lol

I actually didnt see much in topshop or anywhere which is shockinggg for me. I got the majority of stuff in penneys :( lol (primark in dublin)

Anyway .. on to what i got:

* Black and Cream Knitted Cardigan - Penneys: 12 Euro *

* Pearl Ring - Pennys: 3.00 Euro *

* Cameo Necklace - Pennys: 3.00 Euro .. I love this *

* Cameo and Pearl Brooch - Pennys: 3.00 Euro I loveee this too, its so pretti *

* Cream Lace Top - Pennys (primark dublin): forgot the price sorry! *

This top is really pretty and has lovely crochet detailing around the chest, has a vest top insert underneath and it looks lovely tucked into high waisted skirts!

* Greyish Wooly Knitted Cardigan - Penneys: 16 Euro *

This is soo nice .. Its got pearl buttons which i lurvve .. Everytime i go shopping i think i need to pick up something to do with pearls, its become a need, like food, not just a want! lol

Sorry for the crappie pictures, camera wont pick it up well :(

* Velvet Patterned Top - Topshop: 46 Euro *

* Tights - Pennys (primark in dublin): 3.00 Euro *

* Bow Patterned Tights - Pennys: 3.00 Euro *

I love these tights, but they are so thinnnn :(

Only wore them once and theres wee holes and pulls already.

* Black Handbag - Pennys: 11 Euro *

I never usually use a black handbag but i thought this was lurvelllii :)

It was cheap, but it doesnt look it, the material is soo soft and the bags mahoosive inside.

The pictures dont make it look as nice as it is in real though :(

* Faux Fur Mink Jacket - A Wear: 60 Euro equivalent to about £50 *

I kept my FAVOURITE THING to last. I absouletly adóre this wee jacket. Its so lovely, but it would have been perfect if the sleeves would have been longer but ah well i dont mind that much, i still love it! Its so soft and has a goregous brooch on it. It kinda looks like a greyish colour in these pics but its mink which has a browny tone to it, its really hard to describe.

It also has a little waist belt thing on the back which gives you a nice shape when its on :)

I HEART this!

TDF Jumpsuit!

I just had to share this BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF CLOTHING with you all!

I saw it today in the latest issue of LOOK magazine and fell in LOVE with it but NOT the price tag :(

Anyway its a embellished sequin jumpsuit fro Miss Selfridge .. I adore it and want it so badly but it cost £150 and i dont think i would get much wear out of it to be honest but if i didnt care about the price id have it in a flash!

Below is Estelle and Kimberley Wyatt both rocking high street at the Teen Choice Awards, i think Estelle pulls it off better though! The photos make the colours really different looking though.

What do you guys think of it?

Love or Hate?

I have wanted this for the last few months since i first saw it on the internet, it just seems so purrr~FECT for mói lol

I was so jealous when it was released in the states but in the uk we'd have to wait to like sept/oct. Boo hoo !

However i kept checking on the internet if anyone knew a specific date..sooo i was just on a while ago and thought id do a wee search again and landed on a beauty blog and the girl stated she GOT HERS IN THE HOUSE OF FRASER STORE in london ... so i IMMEDIATELY checked the website and to my eyes, IT IS AVAILABLE!

I couldnt believe my eyes, i was in SHOCK! Am i the only wan thats easily amused lol. Anyway i ordered it straight away.

It cost £27.00 + £3.00 p+p

I rang my bf and was like guess what guess what? what have i wanted for ages? and he was like umm, the make-up box thingy lol

But that showed HE listens to me blabbing on (well kinda) but anyway thats my 'lil raveeee over ....

Hi dollies :)

Hope youre all doing well!

So on Sunday me and the BF just went out for a drive and wee spotted a car boot sale when we were out and about. Ive never been to one before, i kinda felt a lil outa place lol. I never saw much :( But i spotted a few things.

My bf got this little greenish brooch for me, its lurvliii :) I heart brooches, im such-a granny aint i? :(

I also got a little cream thingy, its kinda like a trinket box or something, i just thought it was really cute so my bf got me it too. Its sooo heavy but!

It had a little gold heart in it too, it looks silver but!

Anyway thats all i got, not much but i love my wee "finds" =)

Some people have all the luck at c-boot sales, once on someones blog i saw clothes that they got, they were really quirky and lovely for the prices of like 30p etc. Unfortunately for me i dont have the lucky charm! lol

Thats all from me now, this ramble was rather un-interesting lol but .. im off to Dublin tomorrow morning with my mum and sister i think for a few days which im really looking forward too .. I love shopping there! BUT im not looking forward to the 3 hour long drive and getting up at 5am or soo :(

Talk soon

1. Post who gave you this award

2. State 1o things that you love
3. Give this award to 10 other bloggers
Now ... Onto the 10 things that I love!

1. Blogging & My Followers .. I could sit reading blogs all day, i find them so interesting, i love finding peoples rants and raves about things that i really like personally! I really appreciate all my followers too, im glad some people enjoy my posts, well maybe not enjoy, shall i say at least Read?! Thank-you to all of you who follow me though :)

2. I love Bread (weirdd yes? lol) e.g brown bread, white bread, plain scones, wheaten scones, plain muffins, soda bread, potato bread, pancakes, but especially wheaten slices with grated cheese mmmm :) But breads a carb isnt it so thats no gooood :( boohoo!

3. I love Christmas and everthing to do with it. Its not all about the presents, its about being with all the people you love to etc i just love putting the christmas tree and decorations up, i cannot wait to do that lol but i hate taking them down :( Christmas was so much better when i was younger though, when santa claus was alive !

4. Shopping especially in vintage/quirky style shops like my favourite- Liberty Blue, Belfast pictured below:

5. I heart Chocolate, doesnt every girl? I especially love Dairy Box Chocolates, theres a certain chocolate in it that i adore lol i also love Galaxy chocolate and thorntons ... mmmmmm but my stomach etc dont :( I think i should start fulfilling my chocolate addiction by replacing milk chocolate with dark chocolate, personally i hate dark chocolate but it is supposedly meant to be GOOD for you!


7. Chanel Coco Mademosielle Purse Spray Parfúm .. I absouletly ADORE this perfume. It smells toooo beautiful, my bf bought me it last christmas and i barely use it, only on special occasions, its too good for me to use everyday !

8. I L.O.V.E PEARLS. Im pretty obsessed and by gawd does my bf know it, he bought me sooo much jewellery last christmas and every piece was pearls or had a few pearls on it :) These Chanel ones are pretty. But imo pearls still look classy whether or not the price tag is low or huge!

9. I LOVE MY FAMILY. Doesnt everybody? :) Without them i would be here now.

10. I liveee on téa. I couldnt live without it, (i lekly could if it was a life or death situation lol) i just love it, not too milky .. not too strong, about 2 and 1/2 sugars and im happy, about 5 times a day ! lol

Topshop Chunky Knitted Cardigan !

Hi Everyone .. Hope your all having a fab weekend :)

Im stuck in on this and waiting on my bf to come home from work which wont be for like another 2hrs+ :(

Got a Migraineeee as usual so laptop plus migraine isnt really a good combination but theres feck all to do!

Anyway, this is just a wee post to show you all a knitted cardigan i got. It came in the post today, i love getting packages :)

From the post title uns will see it says Topshop but i actually got it from the wonderful, wait for it ..... world of EBAY!

Its a topshop knitted cardi thou and was originally £65, i got it for just over £15.00!

Other ppl were bidding but i stuck in there and won, i hate bidding but, id rather just "buy now" i find it less pressurising ! lol anyone agree?

Its a size 10 but i would need it to be smaller but it looks lovely and oversized.

I think itl be nice come the winter months.

I personally LOVE the winter and loathe/hate the summer. I just love winter style, lovely full length tights, cosy jackets, chunky scarfs +gloves, cosying up on the sofa with a blanket and a snuggly hot water bottle etc ... i know im weird right? lol

I still take water bottles all year through thou, im always cold lol

Anyway thats my rambles over!

Shopping Haul/Buys =)

Hii Again Lovelies

Yesterday my mum took me and my older sister to Belfast shopping :)

I just couldnt wait to hit M.A.C as ive been hinting at her soooo much lol. Anyway of course i saw MAC in Debenhams straight away but my mum and sister had to get too Starbucks .. grrr lol then i said to her can i go to mac .. so then she gave me HER CREDIT CARD :o i was like thank you mammy ! lol I was so tempted to buy so soo much but i knew she'd kill me so i just bought 4 things, some of the stuff wasnt even there that i wanted though :( il have to check the website i guess ;)

Anyway, below is a picture of everything i bought, or should i say, what my mum bought for me!

So this was my first time ever at a M.A.C counter. It was in Debenhams. When i was in there i felt like i was being watched by one of the s/a, maybe that was paranoia thou as i reas that alot of people think the sales assistant are snobby an look down on you. One did come over and was like "are you okay, do you want me to take those for you" .. i was like "no can you just give me a minute please" i just felt like they kinda look down on you. Id rather purchase products from the website now i think! Anyway on to the products, i bought, well my mums credit card bought lol:

* M.A.C Paintpot - Groundwork *
* M.A.C Eyeshadow - Satin Taupe - I loveee this already *
* M.A.C Eyeshadow - Mulch *
* M.A.C Sheertone Shimmer Blush - Springsheen *
Overall im really happy with these 4 products but havent properly used them, ive now got 5 MAC products, including e/s in woodwinked, im so easily fascinated! lol

Next is Revlon Colorstay Foundation 150 Buff oily/combination. These were the only things i bought with my own money yday! If anyone is wondering "why the heck did she buy 3?" well that is because in superdrug and boots they currently have a 3 for 2 offer on all Revlon Cosmetics. I thought id take advantage of this. I checked a few boots shops as the weknd and yesterday and they only had 2 in my shade in stock, but i finally found 3 yesterday :) I bought 3 because i know il always use this foundation, it was about £23.99 all together so I saved myself roughly £12.oo !

Then comes my Urban Outfitters Purchases .. I got this blousey top. It looks quite retro/vintage-y (is that even a word) dont you think? It got little creamy lined buttons with a gold outline. The Brand of the blouse is POP England and it says its made from urban recycled materials. It can be worn so the top but is closed but i prefer it open and the sides flapped down, i think it looks cuter. This cost £35.00. I actually adoreeee it on, and the waistband is gorgeous as well as the material =)

I also got this skirt in Urban Outfitters. Its a tight lace skirt but really comfy and flattering, its grey but kinda has a greenish tone too it. It was orriginally £35.00 but i got it for £14.99!

In House of Fraser i came across the Mikey Jewellery Stand, i would usually be interested in Mikey Jewellery but just had a peep anyway. I saw the chandelier earrings and i just had to have them. They are so Biggg but really heavy, but that didt stop me getting them. They were originally £20 but they have 70% off which made them £6 :0 Also the sale poster said "Buy any sale item and get the cheapest free" . There wasnt much else i like but these hoop PEARL earrings caught my eye straight away. If you read my Blog you should know that i am OBSESSSSSED WITH PEARLS! They were orighinally £18. I went to the till and just aked the s/a if i would get them free just to make sure, and she said yes, she was like "thats really good isnt it" :) So overall, i got those two pairs of purrtii earrings for just £6 whereas they would have really cost £38 minus the sale prices. Great BARGAIN. Anyone Agree? :)

I saw these shoes first in Navy, i usually dont wear that much navy but straight away i said to myself i dont care just because there was pearls on them but then .... i checked a few shoe stands below and i saw them in black .... i was like YAYYY! I got them in New Look btw and they cost £20. They arent too high, more of a kitten heel, so you could wear them shopping etc and your feet wouldnt be cavin in ! Theyre suede, have little bows at the side, diamontes and PEARLS! I absoloutely LOVE these shoes, they are just sooo cute =)

Now, Good Óle Primark lol ... from the left:

*Flower Brooch-£2.50, its really cute*
*Flower Ring-£3.00*
*Purple Kabuki Brush-£1.50, ive heard good reviews about this so thought id get it to give it a try as it was! *

I also got this suede navy bag, This is with the FLASH on btw! It only cost £4.00 and is really biggg inside.

This is the bag with NO FLASH, this shows the colour better. I also thought id take the brooch i got in primark and attach it to the middle of the bag to make it more "individual" lol i think its rather cute though :) what do you guys think?

On two my last thing to show unz all .. My little Marilyn Monroe ring! I got this in Liberty Blue Boutique, one of my favourite shops everrrr. There was only 1 of these, i had to get it. It cost £5.00. Its goldish with a picture of her under a soft plastic top if that makes sense. Its so pretty :)

Sorry for the crappy pictures, i tried so many times to get a good picture but couldnt :(
Anyway thats everything i got yesterday. Hope i didnt bore you guys too much, it seems like this post took forever to do! lol
