Bicester Village Haul: DKNY and MAC


Whilst I was in Bicester Village and was bumping into all the shops I wasn’t interested in, I FINALLY went into a store called ‘The Cosmetics Company’, which little to my knowledge was an outlet store (which I should have known because Bicester Village is outlet central). I was so happy to see some amazing brands in there but obviously I was drawn to their MAC counter, where they had their limited edition collections at a discount! I wanted everything, but chose this..

Bella Jane Jewellery.. A unique gift


20130823-194550.jpg

When it comes to presents, I love getting them for people! There’s nothing better in the world in my eyes, than getting someone a small token of appreciation! So when it was time to give my cousin a gift, I knew I had my work cut out!

She’s one of those girls who has everything!

And.. What do you get for someone who has everything? More of what they already have!

And for me.. If you’re a woman, you’ll get jewellery!

I discovered Bella Jane jewellery after watching Pixiwoo. They had on, one of Annabel’s rings and I loved it from the get go! I had a look on her website and found the stuff the perfect sort of gift for a girl! It’s funky, unique and handmade!

Here are the items I bought:

*Serenity Necklace

*Open Heart Charm Stack Ring

20130823-194905.jpg
*Small heart bracelet

All of these items are sterling silver. Not only are the products lovely, but so is the owner, Annabel. I spoke to her through email and twitter and she was very quick to respond and help me in any way she could! She made the whole experience of buying the jewellery hassle-free and not stressful at all!

* The jewellery comes in gorgeous pink gift bags and a sturdy black box

And of course.. I wrote a card and wrapped the box up, too!

How I style watches!


When it comes to watches, I’m like a dealer with the watches inside his jackets! I got a fake Rolex to prove it (and thats the only fake one)! Why wear 1 watch when you can wear them all.. That’s my moto! Have a look at my collection!

Return of the Haul!


I’m baaaaaaack!!

I know I promised you guys a blog post on Saturday but I got REEEEAL busy so I’ll make up for it my lovelies!!!

With the end of the month near, I decided to do a little bit of shopping and picked up some.. Expensive purchases! I went to a flash place so the stuff I got was extortionately priced!

I’m really happy with the things I got! They’re what I’ve been wanting for a while so I’m glad I got them!!

The first thing I had on my agenda was.. RAY BAN’s! Now I’m not a fan of paying anything over £10 for a pair of shades but the cheap ones I get break do easily! With sunglasses I’ve learnt, paying more helps! I went to Westfield in Shepherds Bush and they have a small stall for Sunglasses Hut where we were served by a really helpful guy! He was mega helpful with all the sunglasses that I liked and what looked good! I’d wanted the Wayfarers for a while do decided to get the folding ones cause they’re so cool!

20120923-191618.jpg

20120923-191623.jpg
Ray Ban Wayfarers £140

If you’re looking for an inexpensive pair, Urban Outfitters have a sale on their sunglasses and I got this pair similar to the Ray Bans for £10!

20120923-191438.jpg
Urban Outfitters £10

We then popped into boots and I forgot how many brands Boots actually have! The Boots stores in my area are small! I picked up the Smashbox Tinted Moisturiser because I loved the coverage amount! My skin has been really good (Alhumdolilah), even though I’ve treated it really bad! I haven’t been putting on face cream or taking off my make up properly! I know.. I’m a fool! But this stuff looks amazing! I got the colour light cause it was a PERFECT match! It looked like my skin!

20120923-191634.jpg
Smashbox tinted moisturiser in Light £19.50

I then bumped into the Yves Saint Laurent stand and just knew.. I needed a Rouge Volupte lipstick! I’m not the biggest fan of lipsticks but I had tried these a few times, tested them and put them back because of the price! This lipstick is AMAZING! The pigmentation is INCREDIBLE and it’s so moisturising! The only thing I would say is because its so creamy, it gets stuck in the cracks in your lips so ensure you exfoliate your lips before hand!

20120923-191424.jpg
YSL Rouge Volumpte lipstick in 1 nude beige £23

Next purchase was a whim! I saw a jewellery stand, loved the rings and got one! They’re we’re moderately priced because they had a 20% off sale but I think she should have been cheaper. I loved this trio set! It has 3 bands.. 1 gold, 1 rose gold and 1 silver which I think look beautiful together! The colours are fantastic and the gems in the band go all the way round! They look FANTASTIC! I can’t wait to do a manicure with them!

20120923-191806.jpg
David Deyong £100 (RRP (124.99)

Then I saw a chocolate stand! Omg.. She had macarons! I HAD to grab them! They looked amazing and I loved the colours so I grabbed a box of 6! I know they’re expensive but I loved one of the caramel truffles she handed over so I hope the macarons match!

20120923-191429.jpg
La Maison du Chocolat macarons £10.50

I then went to Kurt Geiger and saw so many shoes that I fell in love with! I decided to go against a BEAUTIFUL pair of shiny peep tie eels which had gorgeous studding! I then saw these star bracelets and thought they looked amazing and they looked like a really good size! I often buy jewellery if it looks as though it will fit my abnormally small wrists and fingers!

20120923-191434.jpg
Kurt Geiger bracelets £15/ £20

HAUL!


Recently, I had a little accident and was feeling a little bit sorry for myself! (nothing serious.. I think) I decided the best cure was.. SHOPPING!

I bought a few bits on the Internet and 1 thing today when I went out and thought I’d share them! They’re very autumnal and Fall inspired!

My favourite jewellery:

20120912-214303.jpg
I got this for £5 at the market! And it’s silver!!!!

Shopping haul!


20120827-215725.jpg

It happened and I’m sorry! I needed some retail therapy after a horrible week! Wasn’t in the best of moods so took advantage of an hour I had free to do anything with and naturally.. Chose to test the strength of my card!

At the moment Soap and Glory/ Boots have a sale on 3 for 2 products so I picked up their hand food! I have the larger version which I got in their Christmas romper pack that they did but that’s way too big for my handbag! I grabbed these smaller tubes which cost £2.50 each so I got 3 for £5! This stuff smells great and is not greasy! I hate hands creams which attract dust to your hands like a magnet! But this dries instantly leaving a light and moisturise feeling with a lovely fresh scent.

20120827-215000.jpg
Soap and Glory Hand Food £2.50 for 50ml

Boots are also doing buy 1 get one half price on their make up tools so I grabbed myself some Real Technique brushes! I got the blusher brush and the stippling brush! I’m loving these at the moment and I’ve used nothing else since I got them (future blog post coming up).

20120827-220455.jpg
Blush brush £9.99
Stippling brush £11.99

I then popped over to Accessorize! I love this place! The people who were in their stores are always friendly and their stock is great! You all know I’m a fan of rings so treated myself! I got the black stone ring because I loved the expensive look of it! I find Accessorize rings last AGES and I’ve never had one go green either so I love picking one or two in time for the current trend! The silver leaf one is silver plated! I was looking for a ring to wear everyday when I’m not feeling up to a statement design and this looks elegant, delicate and is a lovely design!
St. Marcasite leaf ring £14

20120827-215250.jpg
Zelda Deco ring £10

20120827-215255.jpg

I also got this lovely perfume from Accessorize! It’s called enchanted and smells divine! A very floral and slightly musky smell but it’s not overpowering and is perfect for day to day (if you wear perfume out as i don’t for religious reasons.. This is just another one for my bed and teddy to smell)!

20120827-215051.jpg
Accessorize Enchanted perfume £15 for 50ml

I love the quirky things in Accessorize and grabbed the mini wipes at the counter! I love strawberry and these were perfect to keep in my hand handbag! They also do cherry ones! Then I saw this notepad and just had to get it! I needed something to take notes on at work and for my blog and this is the perfect size! Not too small so you can’t see but not so big your bag should have a licence!

20120827-215041.jpg
Wet wipes £1.50 for 10 wipes

20120827-215301.jpg
Notepad £5

The bangle is from H&M! I LOVE HAYCH AND EM! Their jewellery sits my scrawny wrists and fingers! I love the way they often do bangles in different sizes! I would love to wear oversized bangles but from most stores they usually go right up to my shoulder so when I saw this bangle, I grabbed it! I love the design, size and the clasp which means I don’t get sore hands from squeezing it on!

20120827-215717.jpg
H & M bangle £6.99

20120827-221340.jpg
If every you’re having a bad day.. Just shop! That’s all I can say!
