I went shopping with my mum yesterday as I had some presents to buy for people and still had some of my birthday money to spend. There is so much I want to buy in Topshop, Urban Outfitters and H&M at the moment. I am going to hold out till more spring stock comes in as a lot of the colours in are still toned down and I want bright colours to add to my wardrobe.
Brace yourselves for an image heavy post and some writing ;)
'Love Boat' Sweater- Primark / Mustard Yellow Long Sleeve T-shirt- M&S
Socks- Primark / Casio Watch- Ebay / Pencil Case and pen- Paperchase
Sailor Stickers- Gaf / Woodland Animal Foam Stickers- Paperchase
Bambi Clip-On Earrings and Ring Set- H&M
(Bought these for my little cousins birthday)
The images below show some things I saw on my outing that I thought you guys may like. I went to Lush for the first time in years and I was so impressed with the presentation and the products they have on sale.
This smells divine....'Bubblegum' Lip Scrub- Lush
The smell of this one took me back to my childhood- 'Happy Blooming' Bath Melt- Lush
Topshop have some awesome jewellery in as always. By now you guys probably know I like things with moons, stars and suns on them.
I try'd on this pretty dress in H&M and for £14.99 you can't complain.
I noticed a lot of jewellery with initials on them in Topshop and Urban Outfitters, they had the best collections from what I saw. I wish I could have you shown a particular necklace in Topshop I loved but they don't have it up on their site.
Primark have got these amazing Vivienne Westwood style wellington boots in at only £10, how good is that. I think I am going to have to buy them when I go into town next, thats if there are any left. I found it difficult to find an image of these and in finding this photograph I came across this awesome blog 'Hannah Louise Fashion'.
we went to Elula which is a shop that sells fair trade goodies, rocks and gemstones, jewellery, you name it. It is such a cosy shop with lovely incense smells and soft music. Having a coffee or cup of tea is essential to anyone's shopping trip and they have a charming tea room down in the basement of the shop, so if your in Newcastle make sure to make a trip to Elula. I bought myself some crystal shards to make into a necklace and possibly a ring. You can see my attempt at wrapping wire around to make one into a pendant, but I might have to re-adjust it, but I think my first attempt is pretty good. Here is the tutorial I used on Youtube. I used to have a necklace that held gemstones in a wire swirl and thought after all these years I would buy another. I got a beautiful faceted piece of Rhodonite with its hues of pink and yellow and placed into the metal swirl pendant and added a piece of suede cord. I have just bought a Moonstone gemstone too so I can change the stone over. I really want to buy more gemstones like Dalmatian Jasper and Snowflake Obsidian.
