Spring Pastels

I'm so happy that it is finally spring! Last weekends weather was beautiful and I hope it continues because it was so nice to finally have some sun. In all shops the spring collection are starting to arrive and recently I have been loving all the pretty pastels coloured items which have been appearing. This is a trend which I love because these colours make me feel that spring has arrived! I have been loving mint green, lilac and pale pink items these colours are so pretty.

I apologise for some of these pictures they are from the shops website and for some reason which I do not know my computer seems to make them look dark!!

Contrast Collar Bodycon Dress £18
Floral Lace Pencil Skirt
Newlook £25
I have especially been loving the colour mint green, it automatically makes me think of spring time and I can't get enough out it! I love this dress from boohoo, the colour is so beautiful and I think the peter pan collar is so adorable! I also love this lace pencil skirt from new look I love the floral lace and of course the mint green colour.
Ottoman Wrap Skort
Topshop £32
Light Pink Chunky Platform Sandals
River Island £55
I also love the colour pale pink, I have seen this colour so much in shops recently and I really love it. It is such a spring time colour and I think looks so pretty. I particularly love this wrap skort from Topshop, it looks really different to any skirt/shorts I have ever seen before. I haven't worn a skort since I was like 5 and I this one looks great! I think it would look great in the summer months. I also love these chunky heels from River Island I love this colour and these shoes would go with anything! I've noticed that these chunky style heels are in lots of shops recently and I really like them.

Topshop Nail polish in Parma Violet
Lilac Box Clutch Bag
River Island £30
The final pastel colour I love is Lilac, it's a beautiful colour which makes me think of the spring and summer months. The other week I was looking for a lilac nail polish and I found there were loads of them. It must be because it's such a popular colour! I found this especially pretty shade in Topshop for £5 in the colour Parma Violet which reminds me of the little purple sweets I used to have when I was younger! I also came across this Lilac box clutch bag whilst looking for a new bag on the River Island website. I loved this as soon as I saw it! I really like the style of this bag I love the hard box clutch bags and this one is so pretty! This lilac shade is a perfect colour for sping and summer. I can imagine using this bag on holiday or when you only need a few items.

As you can tell I really love pastel colours, these are my favourite examples of the colours which I have been loving.

Fashion and Beauty Haul

Last week as you know I went to London with Em Tanners (her blog is go take a look!) but I didn't buy as much as I thought so I decided to wait until I went shopping on Saturday as well to show you what I bought!

In London we went into so many different shops but I only bought items from Forever 21, which I can't believe!! I first bought a 3/4-length sleeve casual top, which has a main white section, and the sleeves are a faded blue. I'm not the best at describing sorry about that! I really love the colours and it's not like any other top I have bought before. In Forever 21 I next bought a pair of gold earrings. The jewellery section in Forever 21 in London is huge there was so many earrings, necklaces and bracelets. I love these gold earrings and I already have ideas for outfits, which they would go with. They were also only £2.50 they are such good value! The final thing I bought was a pack of 8 mini clips. They are so handy to have and these were £1!

Back home on Saturday I went shopping again, this time I bought lots more! The first shop I went in was Lush. The staff in lush are so friendly and showed me a range of their bath products and what they do in the bath. I decided on the Butterball Bath Ballistic. It smells like vanilla, which is my favourite scent and the lady in lush told me that it contained lots of cocoa butter to make your skin really soft. I can't wait to try it!

The next shop was Superdrug, first I picked up some brown bobby pins for £1.39 because somehow I always seem to loose them I don't know where they go!! I then went to the sleek section of Superdrug. I love the black sleek packaging! I picked up a sleek blush in the colour Rose Gold number 926. It's such a beautiful colour and it has a gold shimmer, which looks so pretty. It also so pigmented so you only need a little bit meaning it lasts for a long time!

I next bought a top in New Look, I fell in love with this Red tartan top with a little peter pan collar it was so cute! It is from a boutique inside of New Look called Cameo Rose. It's such an adorable and versatile top because it can be dressed up or dressed down. I love tartan at the moment and there is so much tartan around! It was priced at £14.99 but I had a £10 New Look voucher from my birthday last year I can't believe I hadn't used it earlier! So I bought the top for £4.99, which was amazing!! The final item I bought was a pair of earrings from River Island. They are rose gold with rose coloured diamantes. I loved them as soon as I saw them! I really like River Island Jewellery I love the designs and the colours and they are such good value! These earrings were only £3 and I can’t wait to wear them.

I have had such a good time shopping and I love all my new purchases, my bank balance I do not love as much!!
