Alternative and retro jewellery haul

This is my last installment of my recent purchases and as you can see from the title it's a jewellery haul!
Word Rings - eBay store - £1.29 each
I have seen the Karma around online and thought it was a really cute idea and it would be a ring that you can wear on any occasion with any outfit. I found
Skull and Cross necklace - Simply Emily - £3.99
Everyon should check out Simply Emily Boutique, she has some lovely things and I even got a hand written note with my purchase which I thought was cute!

Skull Earrings - Topshop - £2.50 on sale

Ankh Cross Earrings - Topshop - £2.50 on sale
Hula/Tiki Lady Earrings - Claire's Accessories - £1 on sale
I love how tacky these are!

Retro inspired + vintage dress haul

 I said in my last post that I would do a dress "haul". These are the dresses I have bought over the past 2 months.

Black Flamingo Print Dress - £10 - Primark

 I actually saw this first on tumblr as a girl that I follow bought it! I have one similar from last year where the flamingos are different and more brightly coloured. I also like this for the elasticated waist!

Vintage Dress - £15 on sale - Ego
 This is definately my favourite out of the 3. I bought this on sale in a little vintage shop in Lincoln called Ego. I'm not entirely sure if this is actually vintage becauae the shop also sells new clothes, however the buttons on the back did need a little mending which makes me think it is second hand. I really do adore this as its floaty and flatering and unusual.

Black Dress - £9 on sale - New Look
I also got this one on sale and this is the dress I spoke about in my last post saying that it would go with these shoes nicely.

Is it just me who has an addiction to buying dresses?

Nottingham shopping!

I have accumulated quite a few new things during my absence from blogging so I decided to do them in 3 seperate blog posts: Nottingham (my most recent shopping trip with my best friend) Dresses and Jewellery. 

As the title suggests today's post is about Nottingham!

Black Suede Wedge Boot - £16 - Select
 I bought these primarily to go with a certain dress that I have bough recently, but you'll have to wait for a few days until I post about that ;)

Black and White Skull Cardigan - Magenta - £10

Yellow "Cat Eye" Sunglasses - £1 - Primark
 I am planning on copying Lizzy's idea and painting them black or maybe red depending on how I feel. Mwahaha.

Pro Longwear Foundation - MAC - £24
 I bought this first and that's the reason I didn't spend oodles on clothes haha. :)

Whilst in Nottingham, I took the oppurtunity to try on the American Apparel Disco Pants that I have featured in my two most recent "wishlists". I was actually supprised they fitted me, especially in the sweaty hot humid changing room! I am planning on buying them online when I get paid, in time for my birthday :)

Birthday Wish(ful thinking) List!

It's my birthday soon so I thought I'd make a wish list. Mainly these are things that I am planning on buying myself when I next get paid as a "treat" because I wouldn't expect anyone to actually spend this amount of money on me :)

 1. Blonde Human Hair Extensions - eBay - price varies (I'm going to dye them of course)
2. VIXON Flatform Creepers - ASOS - £35
3. Disco Pants - American Apparel - £70
4. MAC lipstick in Diva - £13.50

I am busy the next few days but I am planning on doing a red lipstick review/comparison with a drugstore, high end and also one from my local market. 

Also I'm going shopping in Nottingham with Lizzy on Friday which is oh so exciting!
