Life snippets

collagelately
I put a box dye on my hair and I was pleasantly surprised with the results. A lazy Sunday evening with Tom, he made me Burritos, they were so gooooood. My new Cath Kidston iPhone case from the ASOS sale (see previous post) isn't it pretty?! A certain sausage wanting in on my Ben and Jerry's Ice cream.. washed down with Crabbies new Raspberry and Rhubarb - amazing. My new pointed classic flats from new look, a wardrobe staple at any time in the year. This shirt from Zara is old, it went a bit raggy in the wash and I'm now desperately on the hunt for a new one that lives up to it's standards. I'm not going to lie black flats, plaid shirts…  *whispers* anyone else slightly pining for crisp autumn days?!

My recent purchases


leopard print sandals

Leopard print heeled sandals - Matalan
These beautiful heeled sandals were an absolute total bargain, at just £7.50 in the sale at Matalan. I think they look like they could be straight off the shelves from Zara. The leopard print part of the sandal has a brushed effect, I absolutely love them! They had tons of sizes left too. So simple and chic.

yankee candle wedding day

Wedding Day Yankee Candle - eBay
I couldn't resist buying this for my cousin as a little gift for her. I gave it to her whilst we were getting ready in the Bridal suite, I'm so glad no one else bought her it. It smells lovely, fresh, with a hint of roses and a touch of vanilla! I love novelty little things like this, why not make the most of occasions!

topshop collarx
Lace collar top - topshop
How gorgeous is this top from Topshop, I love it, it was only £16.00 but it feels and looks a lot more expensive than that, the detailing on the collar and the arms is so dainty and pretty, a summer staple for sure. It also comes in tons of colours I'm so tempted to buy the blush, pastel pink version of this too!

Wedding Bells

This weekend I went to my cousins wedding, I was a bridesmaid, the weather couldn't have been more perfect, it was so warm and sunny… I had such an amazing weekend with my family and boyfriend. I wanted to share some snaps from the day with you, so I picked a few of the less personal ones to post on here! Something a little different, I hope you don't mind, I just really enjoyed taking these photos.

What do you think? I adored everything, The gorgeous bride did an amazing job of it all, the flowers, the food, even though I can't share too many photos on here, the place was simply stunning. The Bridal suite was amazing and I loved my bridesmaid dress, I will be posting a few more pictures on instagram probably, have a nice relaxing Sunday, I know I will...I need to rest my poor feet!

Home bits and bobs...

This 'home sweet home' sign was from Matalan and was only £2.00 they had a larger version available too which was priced at £5.00. I have tons of little signs, plaques and wicker hearts dotted about the house.

Whenever I go into Primark, I stock up on their jewellery it is so cheap but it lasts so long. I've paid a lot more in other high street stores in the past and it has either fallen apart or gone green after one wear!
flowers.png
As much as I absolutely love fresh flowers, I can't afford to buy them constantly. If I could, every room would be full of them. When I went into Home Bargains, I spotted these silk flowers, priced at £1.70 each, so I picked up two bunches in similar colours, I think they look pretty sitting on my desk...

Ahhh, Lauren Conrad. This girl will forever be an idol of mine, I always adored her in Laguna Beach and The Hills. I've ordered a few more of her books off eBay, can't wait for them to arrive! 
pens.png
If it's got animals or a cute print pattern on it, I'm sold. These pens were 50p from Home Bargains, I love that shop! It's got some really cute stationary, I could spend a fortune in there sometimes.
