(late) my week in photos #8

A little late but I am blogging from my new MacBook pro, holaaaaa!

Tasty salmon & broccoli fishcakes with salad as a 'last supper' with Doms family, before Dom & I went back to uni | A very lazy day in bed! | My pretty new iPhone case | Travelling home from Leeds in my pjs! | Champagne in Doms flat | Love my nail polish combo! | Cute little salt & pepper pots | Yummy alternative to Nandos peri peri chip salt | HUSKYBEAR <3

Today I am currently cramming my life into bags, ready for my journey back to London to start my second year of university! I am quite busy during the next couple of days, helping out as a student ambassador & also attending an event, career based! I'm planning to blog in the evenings though, I have tonnes of posts lined up, it's just having the time to sit & photograph stuff then type it all up! I've been crazy busy this Summer, doing absolutely nothing in particular, lets hope I can get blogging properly soon as I honestly enjoy it so much! A massive thank you to all who follow my blog and take the time to comment, I appreciate each and every one of you, it means a great deal to me! Reaching over 200 followers in a few months has shocked me really, I never believe that anything I publish is worthy of reading, so seeing that little number rising up slowly but surely really reassures me that somebody out there does like what they see!! :) I know follower count isn't everything though I think it is a lovely little extra that comes along with blogging. 

Finally, would you all be interested in me doing a blog post about my new MacBook? I'm undecided so let me know!

Jacket - Primark
Jumper - Primark
Skirt - H&M
Bobble Hat - Primark
Nails - Essie Bikini So Teeny & Models Own Disco Mix

Finally an outfit post! I've honestly not stopped wearing this jacket since I picked it up a couple of weeks ago in Primark, I did originally want the River Island version as I prefer the shade of khaki, yes I'm being picky over a shade & the leather look sleeves look better quality! Sadly I couldn't justify the price, I shouldn't really have bought this one either as I am SO poor atm, student life is rubbish! Even so, I am still ridiculously happy with this little jacket & I've had loads of compliments on it too!

I'm also obsessed with this jumper, again from Primark, its so comfy & I love the oversized fit. I normally buy knitwear in a few sizes bigger than my usual size but this is a size 8 & fits just how I like! I also picked up the bobble hat for only £2 as they're one of my fave things to wear. I seriously wish it was socially acceptable to wear bobble hats anywhere & everywhere because I feel I look a lot better when I wear one haha. Plus they're perfect for hiding bad hair days!

how much is your face worth?

(Apologies for the horrendous quality, stupidly took it on the front facing camera on my iPhone)

I've seen a few bloggers doing this tag & thought I'd join in as I'm curious to know how much my makeup products are worth! Most of my makeup is drugstore, as I'm a poor student *sadface* so I'm not expecting the total to be huge, but lets see...

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation 'Ivory' - £8.99
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer 'Fair' - £4.19
Rimmel Glam'Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 'Smokey Brown' (I use the darkest shade to fill in my brows) - £6.99
MUA Undressed Palette - £4
L'Oreal Paris Super liner - £6.49
MAC Haute & Naughty Mascara (This was actually a free gift when I placed an order ages ago!) - £18
Rimmel Soft Kohl Eye Pencil - £2.99
Topshop Blush 'Powdered' - £6.00
Collection Translucent Powder - £2.99
Figs & Rouge Rambling Rose Balm - £3.00
Topshop Lipstick 'Inhibition' - £8

Total: £71.64

I actually don't think that is too bad at all, considering I've seen some totals way over £200! 

I am planning on posting my everyday makeup in a couple of days, which will show the products fully & give more details about why I use them, etc etc!

my week in photos #7


welcome back offer from Vogue | my Friday night! | hitting the vodka midweek... | 
cooked dinner for Dom & I, but it didn't look much! | Nana baked me a cupcake | Pressies for my mumma |
Cute birthday card! | My little bunny Timmy <3 | Found my A level Textiles work!

Okay, I'll admit I cheated a tiny bit this week, seeing as though I didn't do this post last Sunday I've compiled this mosaic using photos from the past two weeks! I didn't have enough photos for this week anyway, my life has been super, super boring.

Hope everyone has had a nice weekend, I've mostly been visiting family & had a roast at my Nana's this afternoon :)

wednesday wishlist #4

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven| eight | nine

Managed to quickly create a wishlist before my laptop decided to turn itself off, this is why I've been absent on the blogging scene recently even though I promised I'd be back to normal! (Also, apologies this is posting slightly after midnight, technically making it 'thursday wishlist', it doesn't sound right!)

One - A twist on the usual cross bracelets that have been popular recently.

Two - I'm in need of more costume jewellery, the two bracelets I chose are perfect for everyday wear!

Three - I wish I had bought these when they were in stock, topshop only have navy left ):

Four - The new vaseline flavour! I'm addicted to lipbalms so it'd be silly of me to not pick this one up...

Five - I've heard good stuff about the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask, my skin always feels as though it's in need of a drink so I'm considering investing in this!

Six - Can never have enough cosy jumpers for the winter & the burgundy colour is a perfect autumnal shade.

Seven - Okay I really, really, REALLY need this foundation! I swatched it in Debenhams a few weeks ago & fell in love, Dom already knows I want it for Christmas if I don't cave & buy it beforehand!

Eight - My favourite body scrub, I need to pick up another of these asap!

Nine - The Louise Gray collection at Topshop is amazing, however I was initially drawn to the beautiful glitter polishes, hurry up student loan...
