This post is so much later than I had planned, I'm a bit annoyed at myself because I have spent pretty much the whole day playing dress up and feeding my face. My time management has always been SHOCKING.
Anyhow, better late than never.
Yesterday after work I met my best friend for a wander 'round the Bullring and Starbucks. I took it as an opportunity to pick up a few things that I want for my birthday- I buy things when I see them and then people give me the money for them and wrap them! That might be a bit weird to some of you but for me it really works because I get what I want and people don't have to stress.
The above jacket is one of my gifts that I was too excited about and had to show you guys. I only wore it for the photographs and then swapped it over for my orange one (in a few posts down). I know I said I hated pastels and that I wasn't going to be wearing them, but that all changed when I saw this jacket in last weeks LOOK magazine and I decided that I needed it in my life/jacket collection. There are 4 H&M's in Birmingham and I could only find it in one of the stores and on the rack they only had 3 size 10's and a 14 but luckily there was one of the mannequin so I got the sales assistant to climb up and get it so I could see the size, which turned out to be mine and the perfect fit. I literally RAN to the till!
I also picked up some new jeans from another H&M, and they are incredible. I have an absolute fucking nightmare when it comes to jeans. I am 5ft 2 and a size 4-6 and I like my jeans ankle skimming and TIGHT. meaning it is virtually impossible. The jeans I have been living in the past year I have to wash every time I want to wear them and tumble-dry then for about an hour and a half to get the really tight because they are a 6 and too big. Anyhow, all that changed yesterday when I found the perfect shade, 24 waist, ankle skimming jeans for £14.99. I am actually in love. I'm thinking of going back in the week and getting another pair if they have them, because I have a feeling my old size 6 New Look's will now be retiring.
What do you guys think about jeans, and where do you buy yours from?!
I also picked up a few rings from H&M which you can see in the pictures above. I am thoroughly enjoying overloading jewellery right now and so I thought I'd get a few new pieces.
The necklaces are also new. They are from New Look and currently all the jewellery and hair accessories in there are on buy one get one free which I think is really good, so get involved!
As I have waffled on quite a bit about nothing of great importance I think I'll go now and just leave you with a few of this weeks Instagram pictures. I quite like this little routine I have got into of doing this!
How about you guys?
I hope you all have a fabulous week! XXX
