Pay Day Wishlist

Flared Jeans: New Look
Personalised Tan Bag: Fiorelli
Shoes: Orla Kiely for Clarks
Biker Jacket: Topshop
Eyeshadow Palette: Charlotte Tilbury

Pay day is almost here - it feels like ages since the last one, or is it just me?! Me being me, I haven't been able to go without making a list of all of the things that I want to buy when my bank account is looking a bit less bare. 

First up the flared jeans - this might be more of an aspirational item than something I'll actually end up buying, as I have an awful feeling that flares would not suit me at all. I love them though, so will try on at least one pair just to be completely sure. This New Look pair are a bit of a bargain though, so I might end up buying them anyway just to have them in my wardrobe. 

I've been resisting buying a new handbag for months now, trying to be sensible and use some of my older ones instead to save money. After the handle broke on one and the lining ripped on another though, I have come to the conclusion that I pretty much have to buy a new one. This Fiorelli bag is gorgeous enough on its own, but then I spotted that it could be personalised. I have always had a yearning for a bag with my initials on, so this is pretty much a must buy for me.

Items three and four on my list have a lot of things in common. Number one, they are totally beautiful. Number two, they are both pink (always a good thing in my book). Number three...they are both just that teensy bit too expensive for me to be able to impulsively purchase them. The jacket is gorgeous, but I have a feeling I'd be able to find a cheaper version elsewhere if I looked hard enough. The shoes though...I don't know if I'll be able to let go of those so easily.

Last but not least we have the token beauty item. I recently carried out a bit of a cull on my makeup and ended up downsizing so that anything that I don't use on a regular basis got binned. Ruthless, I know. Still - this totally leaves room for adding more makeup, and I've been eyeing up this Charlotte Tilbury palette for a good few months now. Perhaps its time.

Jacket: TK Maxx
Top: New Look
Necklace: The Jewel Shack*
Trousers: Missguided
Shoes: ASOS

I fully blame the purchase of these trousers on Amy from The Little Magpie, as I've seen her rock this style on her blog and therefore couldn't resist getting my own pair in the hopes that a little bit of her coolness would rub off on me. Not sure it worked, but they're still awful purty! 

I'm not sure I picked the best day to take these photos though, as it was absolutely chucking it down the whole afternoon. What you can't see in these photos is poor Sean, who was dressed in a waterproof trying desperately to take these photos quick enough that he could get back in and watch Top Gear in the nice dry living room. 

There's something about powder blue teamed with black that I really love - which makes this gorgeous Jewel Shack necklace perfect for me. It's the perfect accessory for this outfit as far as I'm concerned! I'd definitely recommend checking them out if you're a fan of a statement necklace, there's some absolute beauties available!

Missguided Haul

I feel like its been ages since I filmed a Youtube video! I'm really going to try to get back into it this time though - I feel like it was always a pain when I lived at home because there was never any time where people were out all at the same time, and there was no perfect 'spot' in my room for me to set up the lights and camera (and...action) 

Now I have my own little corner in our new flat and there's room for me to set up my soft box lighting - plus Sean is always popping out to the gym/sitting in the living room plugged into his PS4 so I can make time to film! I decided to ease myself back in with an easy peasy haul video as I bought a load of stuff from Missguided last payday that I didn't need but totally fell in love with - settle down and have a watch with a cuppa!
