To begin, I'd like to apologise for the lack of blogging, but as the title suggests, it was my birthday yesterday! I had a really good day shopping with my best friend and a rather cracking evening with many friends, including vodka. Needless to say, i'm suffering horrifically today so I thought I'd share my presents and also what I bought with some of my birthday money.
I got two new Links charms to add to my sweetie bracelet - the strawberry and a four leaf clover. Thanks to my mummy and daddy for these!
My brother and my sister in law bought me a £40 Topshop gift voucher, here is what I bought:
Pink spotty scallop trim vest
I really like the trim to this top and thought the colour was superb for this seasons colour trend.
Blue vest top
I liked this as it had a worn feel about it, the dark blue embellishments look like bobbles you'd get on worn clothes.
Peter pan collar spotted tunic
I abosolutely loved this when I first saw it online, so I was really pleased that they still had it in the shops yesterday!
We then moved onto New Look, which has a lovely S/S range this year!
Electric blue chiffon shirt
When I saw this I knew I needed to buy it. I will most likely wear with a long top, tights and brogues. I love the gold buttons, they really stand out against this gorgeous colour.
Chunky cable knit boyfriend cardi
I wanted something to wear with the Topshop tunic and this will go perfectly. Its lovely and chunky, so it will definitely keep me warm!
After New Look we went to H&M, Superdrug and Boots.
I picked up this vest dress for £7.99, (bargain!) it will be perfect under the blue chiffon shirt or the pink crop top I bought, as well as many other items I own.
In Superdrug I bought the GOSH Brow palette and my best friend picked up Rimmel nail varnishes which were 3 for 2 and got me the Apricot punch colour. We then went onto Boots where I finally got hold of a blending brush - it was £6.45 compared to MACs 217 which is £15 and works just as well! I also bought a Chanel Varnish on eBay which came this morning, in the infamous Rouge Noir.
That's about all I spent yesterday, I still have some birthday money left over which will go towards my trip to the vintage fair tomorrow. Look out for the blog post for pictures and information, tomorrow evening.
