Sunday Overload

Hey guys, hope you're all well. I feel like I have a tonne of things to say to you but actually thinking over it I only have three main things, haha.

#1. I received a very exciting email last night from Lily (RedBrickLipstick) informing me that I was the winner of her giveaway! This is the first giveaway I've won so I'm extremely excited about it :D I'm particularly looking forward to receiving the vintage Jaeger cardigan because of the military vibe to it (I love all things military) and it looks warm - I can't stand the cold and I've come to the conclusion there isn't going to be any sun anytime soon here in England! I'm also really pleased about the vintage doyleys because I've plans to put them all round my room. The other bits are also really great too and they shall be treasured! Please go have have a look at her blog, not only is it lovely - she is too :)

#2. I went to New Look today to get a sheer shirt, the stuff in store was pretty different to that on the website so initially I was a little disappointed. They tend to place different clothes behind newer ones though so I had a good rummage and found a shirt which I'm happy with! I was keeping an eye out for things which I featured on my wishlist the other day - didn't see any of it.
I wanted quite a simple sheer shirt until I watched this video the other day and saw the shirt Ellie Goulding was wearing with the dipped hem at the back, I love the way it floats it looks so pretty!

Sheer Shirt - New Look
Tube Skirt - New Look
Batwing jumper - New Look
Red top - Primark

I've just realised you can't even see the back. Great! Never mind, you get the gist right? Huge apologies for my hair/face/general ew-ness! Photos today did not go well. The stripey batwing jumper is what I wore to go shopping and I wore thick black ribbed tights instead of the socks. Which brings me onto the socks.. 

#3. As some of you may know I've been having a huge clear out of my room and I found these Urban Outfitters socks with lace panels up the sides, these were a freebie from a freshers fare when I first started college! I love them.

Also, I managed to get my mum into Lush! She even said she wanted to go up to Bluewater and go there.. Yessss! Hello shopping spree. Sorry for the humongous post, I actually have a tonne of other stuff I could bore you with but I think enough is enough! Enjoy your Sunday evening.

  7. love that shirt it looks lovely on :) I agree with you about new look I love loads of things on the website but you can hardly ever find them in store :| I really like this jumper in there atm, but they hid it behind other stock so I almost missed seeing it! congrats on your giveaway win :) X
