OOTD

Just a quick post of my latest outfit, I am in love with my new boots which are from Clarks although I think they look really similar to the Topshop Allegra boots but they were at a fraction of the price and so so comfortable!

This was actually the first time I've worn them and I have worn them loads of times since they literally go with everything! This is one of my more casual relaxed outfits, hence the messy bun! 

Most of the clothes I'm wearing are quite old but I'm sure you can get almost identical copies in any high street shop! The boots arent available online but similar ones are and there are still some left in Clarks shops!

Scarf & Jeans - New Look
Blazer- Charity Shop
Shirt- Primark (from an older post) 
Boots- Clarks 
Bag- BHS (very old)

BarryM Gelly Nail Polishes

Hey everyone! I do apologise that I haven't posted in quite a while, I've been so busy working to earn some penny's! I am going to try to keep on top of blogging and now I finally have some free time I have loads to show you all over the next week or so! 

Sooo, as most of you have probably heard, BarryM have brought out a new nail collection called 'Gelly' which has been created to give a Gel effect but saves you from forking out on getting real Gel's done, handy! When Boot's have their 3 for 2 offer it is one of the worst best things that could happen to me. Worst because I spend loads, best because I love everything I buy! 3 for 2 is the best, honestly can't get enough!


Lilac, Green Berry, Light Blue 
These are the three colours I chose, I went for light pastel's I think they will be really nice for spring/summer (if we even get one, where is the sun?!) I must admit my fav colour is the Green Berry I have it on now and have used this one the most, its a really nice vibrant colour! I love the other colours to and I'm hoping to buy some orange/red colours. 

I put two coats on and found that it gives a great opacity with just one coat but I always put two coats on and a top coat. It leaves a really nice shine even without adding a top coat but I guess its all down to preference really! Working with boxes, unpacking them, repacking them and putting shoes on and off of tiny little feet really does affect my nails and I hate chipped nails, surprisingly with the Barry M Gelly collection they survived 3 whole days at work before slightly chipping on one nail, pretty darn good if you ask me, no other polish has lasted that long! 

I really can't pick a fault with these polishes I love how thick the varnish is but how smooth it apply's onto the nail and for £3.99 you really can't go wrong! I think the 3 for 2 offer is still on at Boots so probably going to save more money AND have fabulous nails!

New Look Sale Shops

I recently went to The Deep in Hull, having a 4 year old brother means days out are aimed more to entertain him, but when I found out I don't know who was more excited! Inner child making an appearance there! 

I've never thought to go to Hull for a spot of shopping but whilst we were there we thought it would be nice to go to the city centre and just have a little look. 

In the shopping centre (of which the name I can't remember) there was a NewLook so I wondered on in and after about 20 minutes of being in there I realised that literally everything was on sale there wasn't one full price item in the shop! I was actually in heaven (love sales!)

Some of the stuff was rather outdated but some of it was really nice! I only bought 2 items but I had to stop myself from buying more, after all it was the first shop that I went in...


I bet you can't guess how much this dress was? £6! I could'nt believe it when I looked at the tag! It is age 13-14 BUT I'm no skinny minnie and the sizes are generous. I bought this mainly beacause I loved the electric blue colour and the gold zips at the side. I wore this for my friends birthday night out, its a really light weight material and really comfortable!



NewLook Dress
Dress- NewLook Sale Store £6
Necklace- Primark £4
Watch- River Island- £25

Apparently there's only a couple of the sale only stores in the UK so if you live near one (I'm not sure where the rest are) then its worth a look I wish I lived closer to one!

I'm hopefully going to be uploading a video on my YouTube channel shortly about my recent purchases (too many if you ask me) but I hope you found this useful, such a good way to save money!

Do any of you have a NewLook Sale Store nearby?

BaByliss Thermo Ceramic Heated Rollers

I thought I would do a video on how I use my heated rollers, I thought you may find it useful because I don't know about you guys, but I've spent hours on the internet trying to find ways to get my hair curly with lots of volume! Finally, I came across BaByliss Heated Rollers I got them about 2 years ago and they are the best things I have used on my hair to make it super big and bouncy!



They are so simple to use, at first I thought they would be quite complicated and pull on my hair but they don't at all they are sooo good! I have done a tutorial on how I do it on my YouTube channel so I hope you find it useful!



If you wanna get your very own BaByliss Heated Rollers then you can get them from here, for around £30, such a bargain for what the product does!

First Trip To Trinity Leeds!

So I don't know if many of you are aware of Trinity Leeds the brand spanking new shopping centre! Absolute bonus that I work right at the side of it! (or possibly one of the worst things to happen)

It opened on the 21st of March and the first time I went was Tuesday the 2nd of April! That's nearly 2 whole weeks of me itching to get there, I would have loved to go to the grand opening but I have had so much uni work (extremely sad times)! But now its Easter I have more time YAY!

I finally got to go and I absolutely loved it, I have lived in Leeds all my life so I'm used to shopping in a quite a big city and Trinity Leeds is a big breathe of fresh air, its so modern and up to date now I love it, honestly can't praise it anymore and there is even more shops opening (apparently one a week so I've been told, word gets round when you work in retail!) 

Sooo, being my usual typical self I thought that there would be no harm in a little retail therapy, right?

As always I'd like to share some of my bargains that I got to show you all so you can go snap them up!


This is very simple plain T-shirt but I just thought it would look really nice with some leggings and maybe a statement necklace. It's like a peplum design and is longer at the back and its a lilac colour and I got this for just £5 at Newlook!


I really love these sheer shirts I literally have about 30 light weight shirts similar to this in a variety of colours. Not to sure about how it looks again a white background think it washes the colour out a little but this was only £3 from Primark!


I have been wanting a charcoal/grey skater dress like this for ages and when I seen this I just couldnt resist, I'm planning on wearing this both during the day and for nights out. I think its just really simple and I love the T-shirt design and again I'll probably team this up with a statement necklace.
£12 from Internacionale


Love my new Barry M Gelly Nail Polish (Planning on doing a post about the latest colours I've got in these) This ring is probably my most favourite item I got from my haul and it was £2.50 from Primark! (These weren't purchased in Trinity Leeds but there is a Primark opening in there soon, excitiiiing!


These are just a couple of snaps from Urban Outfitters, I love just browsing round this shop it has so many cool things inside!

My boyfriend was going to get the cup with the biscuit pocket at Christmas but they were so popular they sold out :( BUT they have them again sooo maybe one might just magically appear into my hands, just maybe? 

I love the hip flasks I think they're great for festivals the owl one is so pretty but I'd probably be scared that it would get ruined, and the camera one reminds me of something a little vintage? I really want this tea mug, because yes, I genuinely love a good cuppa, Yorkshire tea ftw! 

Finally I hope you had a great Easter and if you didn't maybe this will cheer you up...

If you aren't from Leeds and wondering what all the fuss is about and not sure whether to travel up then I would say its a definite yes, you can make a day of it the 3rd floor is full of restaurants and bars. To take a quick look click here
