Cause you were born to be my baby

Today is my best friend's 21st Birthday so...
We've had a busy week together
Wednesday was spent opening presents, eating cupcakes, shopping, and going to the cinema
Friday we went out for dinner at Chiquitos and joined our guy mates for an evening of bowling
Saturday night we ventured up to Hyde Park for Hard Rock Calling to see the glorious Bon Jovi (my fav band) it was so so hot and we practically melted...god knows how we'll cope in Egypt! 
After Bon Jovi had finished we jumped on the train home and straight into Kat's car down to go down to Brighton. One of the guys also turned 21 today so they were all out drinking their wages away. We just joined them for a few hours on the beach with fish and chips :) was rather spontaneous of us but awesome! 
And then today (Sunday) I joined Kat and her family for a goooorgeous spanish meal in a local town, Reigate. It was so good! Once stuffed we wandered around the park for a bit in the lovely 27 degree heat...mmmm. Had a ride on the bumper cars, drank slushy drinks and chilled in the sun.
Such an amazing couple of days and I hope Kat had a great birthday :)
Love her to bits
Enough of the soppyness :P I promised a collective haul so here it is
This is from the last couple of months not bought in one go!!

 Hot and sweaty at Bon Jovi
Third time I've seen them and easily the best!
 Floaty, backless chiffon top, Warehouse, £25
I tried this on full price at £40 and loved it but couldn't justify that much money on one top so was rather happy to find it in the sale
 You can't really see it here but this is the back
I'll get a photo of it on when I wear it
 Flora Playsuit, Tesco, £16
I love this and can't wait to wear it on holiday 
 Black and white Maxi, Republic, £40
I saw this and was instantly drawn to it, I'm thinking its the beaded detailing on the neckline
I don't really own anything like it and it's very flattering on

Blue tunic, Next, £35 (I think)
So light and summery, perfect for the hot weather at the moment
Nude embellished waistcoat, Primark, £13
Love this, again something I don't anything similar
I tend to wear this with a plain black top and skinny jeans
Hibiscus print dress, Primark, £5
So summery! We haven't had the weather to wear this without leggings since I bought it and it looks strange with them so I may have to crack it out this week if the weather keeps up
Cropped denim jacket, Primark, £16
Kat bought this a couple of weeks ago in Lakeside and I loved how it looked on her
I have a Tommy Hilfiger denim jacket but it's not very fitted and kind of reminds me of something my Mum had in the 90's...impulse buy from America! 
I bought this just before we headed to Bon Jovi, good job I did for our trip to the beach after!
Cream lace top, Next, £22
Since I've been going out again I realised I didn't have much in the way of evening outfits
I had some old stuff but it's most definitely not my kind of style anymore so when I saw this I thought it could look nice with plain skirts and blazers etc.
Navy and white polka dot palazzo pants, Next, £35
These are the trousers from my previous post
Very comfy :) except I always trip myself up in the flowy legs!
Grey textured skirt, Next, £38
I wore this on a night out with the lace top above and it looked really nice
I felt good too, which doesn't happen very often!
Floral bandeau dress, Peacocks, £16
Love the turquoise and coral colours together
Should be nice for holiday
Just a few beauty bits I've picked up recently
Tangle Teezer,, Barry M shatter coats in pink and blue, Tweezers, OPI I Vant to Be a Lone Star, MAC lipstick Hibiscus, MAC surfbaby cheek powder My Paradise, China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise

Top: Gold flower in My Paradise
Middle: Coral section in My Paradise
Bottom: Hibiscus 
I finally got my hands on the Naked palette :D So happy!
OPI Skull and Glossbones, Rimmel Ultraviolet and Show Off, Impulse Tease with free Barry M lipgloss, Accessorize flower earrings £8
I love all of the nail varnishes. I was on the hunt for the perfect lilac colour and this is very close but not quite there, it's not quite as vivid as I want it. I'll find it one day! 
I won't bore you with swatches as it's on every blog going somewhere but this is my new love 
So pretty...
 Sorry their a bit dirty I wore them traipsing around London all day last week
Turquoise frilly sandals, Primark, £6
These are so comfy I'm tempted to get another pair in a different colour
Coral suede courts, New Look, £25
I'm loving coral colours at the moment
They scream summer to me
These started off really comfy but towards the end of the night my feet were sore
As with all heels though

Well there's my recent goodie collection
I'm loving all the summer clothes in store at the moment but don't have much money which sucks
Hopefully I'll have some more funds for duty free shopping in July



  1. I went to Egypt not so long ago and it was fantastic!! It was warm but it wasn't as humid as we expected, there was a cool breeze most days, so I'm sure you'll be fine. Hope you have a fantastic time to go with your fantastic clothes xxx

  2. thanks hun :) Im so excited! xx
