New Purchases featuring Pretty Little Thing

I've never bought anything from Pretty Little Thing so when I went on the website and found these two amazing day dresses - which I did need a couple more of - and I couldn't wait for them to arrive at my house. 
So here we go, here are my two purchases:

Pretty Little Thing - £4 (On Sale)

I was a bit weary at first to buy a maxi dress because I'm only 5ft 6" and I thought that it would make me look really short. But I paired the dress with my big heeled boots and it looked ok. Just be careful though because even the tiniest amount of fat on your stomach and the dress shows it off.


Pretty Little Thing - £9 (On Sale)

This dress is very similar to the red one that I bought off Asos, but I love the colour of this one. I also like the cut out shoulder design so I wanted another dress in a similar style. I love the long sleeves as well. The material of the dress is polyester and is quite thin but the dress just slips on and off which I really like because it's really light and flowy.

Beauty Review featuring Technic

I absolutely pastel colour nail varnish so when I found this light pastel blue colour, I was over the moon. I bought it from Bodycare - they do really good nail varnish for an excellent price.

The colour is perfect for the oncoming spring weather in England and it's also one of those colours that goes with most of my outfit choices, which is brilliant because I don't have enough time in the day to keep changing my nail colour. Application is very good but wait about a minute between each coat, otherwise the coat before will smudge.

The nail polish does chip after a bit but that's only because I'm a swimming teacher so my nails are constantly in the water and chlorine does not work well with nail varnish. But otherwise, it doesn't come off or chip easily.

Bodycare/Amazon - £3.49

OOTD Featuring Primark

Even though English weather is terrible, it does have the occasionally day where it's slightly sunny. Today was one of those rare days - it was sunny for half an hour. I took the opportunity and dressed like it was spring (hey! Don't judge, I love wearing shorts!)





Parental Advisory Jumper
H&M - (It's no longer in stock, but if you're willing to splurge, Alexander Wang sell a grey one with mesh panels for £374.85)

As soon as I saw this jumper in the Heerlen H&M last summer, I loved it. Personally, I like my jumpers baggy because I love comfort. I tried on a small when I was over in Holland (I'm a size 8/10 in jumpers) and it fit perfectly. However, I didn't buy it. A few months later, my best friend bought it me in the medium (she knows me too well) and it's one of my most prized jumpers. 


H&M - £12.99 (On Sale!)

I also saw this shorts in the Heerlen H&M and loved them. I've always wanted some leather shorts and these were perfect, the elasticated waist, pockets. Everything I could want in some shorts. They're a size small which is a size 10-12 on the H&M website. I'm a size 10 when it comes to trousers/jeans/shorts and these fit really well. However, if you love pigging out on food like me, they may become a bit tighter - believe me, it's happened to me!


Platform Boots
H&M - £29.99

These boots are yet another thing that I found and purchased in Heerlen. I bought a size 6 (because I'm a size 5.5 which is very awkward). The size 5 were ok, but I knew that if I walked around in them for too long, my toes would squash and it would hurt. A lot. The size 6 were slightly too big but I liked the boots too much to just not buy them. So when I wear the boots, I just wear an extra pair of socks and it works wonders.


My Neighbour Totoro Tights
I bought these tights at London Comic Con last October


Faux Fur Leather Coat
River Island - £85 (No longer in stock but you can find a similar one here)
I love this coat. It's warm and just brilliant. It's a size 12 (I'm normally a size 10 for coats, but I thought that the size 12 fit better)


Grey Small Satchel
Primark - £8


90s Tattoo Choker Necklace
Asos - £4
