Summer Clothes Haul

Hey everyone.
It seems like forever ago I wrote a haul post! The main reason being my camera died and I had to find a replacement, I was considering a SLR, but then decided to go with a digital again until I get enough money to get a brilliant kick - ass SLR.

As summer is nearly here, I have been slowly building up my wardrobe with pretty dresses skirts and shorts. :) I went to London last month and I had a nice big spend up, I will show you some of things I bought from there plus a couple of online orders.

Topshop high waist hot pants.
Near where I live (in London) is an amazing market which mainly sells clothes, the latest fashion by brands like topshop,Zara,new look, asos, all saints etc
at cheap prices.
I got these topshop shorts for £10. in the shops they would have cost me £35.

I love the detailing on the buttons.

Playsuit brand unknown £10
This playsuit is just so pretty. The colours are so bright and cheerful this came in a orange and pink design too, which I was tempted to get.

Topshop Heart Garland Ruffle Dress - £10
How gorgeous! this dress is very sheer so il have to find something to go underneath, the material is so lovely and lightweight there is a silk underlay too.
This is from topshop the tag has been ripped slightly as the stall owners have to do so, but I saw the dress on the display which had the un touched tag in, its defiantly from topshop and the price tag had £50 on it! £40 off = bargain!
Had to edit this - just found the link to the dress online click here it cost £100 from topshop USA!

New look dress - £10
This dress was the first purchase of the day, as soon as I arrived at the market It caught my eye and I ran over. I was very tempted to get the other colours too which is a more nude and pink. The price tag read £25 and I got it for £10!
Boohoo sandals
I got these a while back in the sale for around £5 on, I love the studs! I have yet to wear these.

Republic dress £10
I got this pretty dress in the republic sale, I think its last years stock,this is a strapless dress those are just the hanger ribbons :P
I'm waiting for warmer weather to wear this, I am going London again so may take it with me.

Thanks for reading, If you have any questions just ask me, and I hope to put the rest of my recent hauls up soon!
Have a great weekend!

Magazine Freebies

Hello all! Sorry I have been MIA, I've just been caught up in a few things, and blogging has been on the bottom of my priorities :( which is sad because I miss you all!
However I am starting to get back into the swing of things!
I thought I'd let you all know about this/next months free magazine gifts, as I all know everyone loves a mag freebie, there's so many good gift's out too. So be sure to check out your local newsagents and supermarkets!

I picked up In style magazine whilst I was in tescos yesterday
They are giving away Nails inc nail polishes that normally retail around £10.
The magazine costs £3.70 and there a three pretty colours to chose from!
I chose this very neutral colour, I always seem to go for bright girly colours like pink,purples, and pastels. So this will make a change.

I also noticed Easy living are giving away a Cath Kidston tote bag, there's two to pick from, I'm afraid I do not have a picture of either, but I can promise you there totally cute!

Cosmopolitan are giving away Dorothy Perkins bags, there are two styles to collect,Plus there giving away 20% off Dorthy Perkins and New Look vouchers in every issue.

You may be familiar about this one; Just like last year, Glamour magazine has teamed up with Benefit cosmetics and are giving away free make up items in every issue! There are three to pick from, again- just like last year with the pencils.
This time you get to pick from these top sellers, I am sure you have seen them before, or you may even own one (or all three!) Two tint's and a highlighter. (mini)
I will be getting all three, if I can. Last year I was very lucky to get them all, as everyone went crazy for them, I ended up getting two copies in WHsmith and the last one in a newsagents in London. It's a offer you cannot miss, so I wish you all the best of luck finding them!
There's another great offer I have come across, In boots. If you buy an impulse body spray you get a Barry m lip gloss free! I love impulse and I love Barry M, so I am defiantly getting this, there are three body sprays to chose from and three lip glosses. Pink, Nude & Clear. All for £3! You can find this great offer in Boots, Tesco & superdrug.

I Hope you all found this helpful!
