On Saturday I met one of my best friends from university at Meadowhall – which is a huuuuge shopping centre in Sheffield. I wasn’t really going for anything in particular (apart from MAC mascara) but I ended up seeing quite a few things which I loved! We had so much fun catching up, shopping and eating a large lunch (ice cream sundaes included). Here is what I bought…
1. Victoria’s Secret Body Mist – Love Addict
I bought the Mango Temptation one last year from Gatwick Airport in duty free and it smells amazing. It is so fruity and fresh. I love all the body mists from Victoria’s Secret. On their own they are a bit pricey – they are £13.00 per spray. However the store does a special deal if you buy more than one (which ends up being way cheaper). One of the deals was five for £30.00 (which included body lotion). So I bought two and Lauren bought three – this for me worked out at two for £12.00! The spray itself is lovely and stays on a while.
2. Victoria’s Secret Body Mist – Total Attraction
This was the other mist I invested in! I absolutely love it! It is cherry orchid and lily blossum so smells really sweet and fresh. It also isn’t too overpowering either!
3. Flower Rucksack from Hollister
I apologise for the photo quality I have an anciiiiiiient iPhone! This is the rucksack I bought from Hollister. I had the same rucksack throughout my time at uni but from cartng it home with farr too much stuff in it one strap is held on currently by pins so I thought it was definitely time to invest in a new one! I’m going to use it for days out with Joe if we’re going on long walks or for a picnic or something! I saw one initially in PINK by Victoria’s Secret but when I went back to buy it it had gone! So when I spotted this I was really pleased! It was a really good price – £29.00. It has loads of pockets and is really spacious inside. Plus it is really sturdy which is what I need!
4. Haute and Naughty Waterproof Lash from MAC
I ran out of my last MAC mascara so needed to replace it! I should probably buy a new mascara every three months but MAC mascara is quite dear (£19.00) so only replace it when it dries out or clogs up. I thought I would try the waterproof version this time. I really like it – to be honest I can’t see much of a difference from the non-waterproof version as of yet!
On My Wish List…
I loveee the Nike Lunar Glide Trainers! My favourites are the ones on the left! At the moment my trainers have holes in so I may have to invest in a pair of these!
Me and Joe decided to go for a curry after work at our favourite curry restaurant in our town! It was so yummy! The weather recently has been so sunny and warm so I decided to finally get my gladiator sandals out!

Sunnies of London are ‘an exclusive luxury brand founded in the heart of London’. What I absolutely love about their particular brand is that it is original, edgy and yet high fashion all at the same time. These beautifully handcrafted wooden sunglasses are perfect for lounging around the pool/ your garden as well as parading the city streets armed with all your latest purchases. This up and coming company founded in 2014 is definitely a brand to watch.
Like most people, my sunglasses break from overuse, colliding with a random object in my handbag or god knows what. But what is so great about this collection is that the sunglasses are made from the highest quality bamboo. They also have double-spring hinges and very sturdy frames. The Belgrave Collection and The Mayfair Collection are so chique and are must-haves for any fashionista! These glasses are also eco-friendly and very sustainable. They have 100% UV400 protected black polarized lenses.
