Weekend Haul

Four Day Weekends are one of my favourite things ever.

This weekend just gone I had Friday & Monday off... if you're quick at math you'll realise that means I had a FOUR DAY WEEKEND!

I was super busy as it was the Boyf's Birthday but we managed to fit in a lot. We visited Bristol Zoo and watched the Lion Cubs play for nearly an hour (SO adorable), went for a lot of meals, went on a Booze Cruise on Saturday night (yes it rained a lot, yes our hair looked like cocker spaniels by the end of it), I also managed to squeeze in a cheeky bit of shopping as well so I thought I'd share with you my purchases!

Everywhere has got sales on at the moment and I took full advantage of this! Accessorize had jewellery, flip flops and little bits all reduced. I picked up this gorgeous notebook for £3.50 (originally £7). It's quite big (A5) size, and quite heavy, but I couldn't resist the bright colours and gorgeous pictures of elephants and lotus flowers. This summer I had an obsession with Life of Pi and this really reminded me of it.

We dodged the rain and ran into American Apparel to have a dribble look. I decided I couldn't really justify £50 for a plain black skater dress but instead I picked up this Glitter Nail Varnish (called Galaxy Glitter). I've seen it on a few nail pics and it looks amazing, it's literally a disco ball on your hands! I can't wait to give this a go and share my thoughts with you all. RRP £9


For once I was well behaved in Topshop and only bought a ring! I'm loving the midi rings and this one was £4.50. I really want to get some more and have them all stacked up! I saw some gorgeous ones in Urban Outfitters but they were £6 each! Can you recommend anywhere for these style of rings cheaper? 

The Zara Sale is always something to get stuck into. I spotted this Blue Dress which I fell in love with - for my Boyfriends Birthday I got him theatre tickets to see The Lion King which I've heard is incredible so this is just perfect for the evening. I'm thinking hair up and big will really suit the gorgeous neck detail.


I've saved the big guns till last.

I FINALLY got an iPhone. I've been stuck with my Blackberry for years waiting for my upgrade and the day finally dawned, I cannot express my love for this little white block of technology and I can't put it down. My favourite app is A Beautiful Mess, it's a photo editor that you can add Frames, Doddles and Writing onto - I LOVE IT!

Birthday Cocktail & Jerk Chicken (love this app!)

Besties on the Boat!
