literally everything in this haul was on sale





i'm really stingy but i really like buying things so if it's a bit cheaper that's a good enough excuse for me.

in my mind hollister exclusively sells branded hoodies and sweatpants, but this gorgeous monochrome leaf print tshirt caught my eye despite the brand name. it's cut in a way that looks almost like a men's tshirt but is slightly more flattering, and also smells like the hollister store (not complaining). i found another tshirt with a similar print in h&m, but in a very different cut - it's long sleeved, with a very low scoop neck (you could probably wear it off the shoulder) and when tucked in looks like a bodysuit.

i stocked up my crop top collection with a few new pieces from pretty little thing, consisting of a plain white racer neck, a flowy low-cut black striped one and my favourite, a black high neck top with cut-out shoulders. other essentials include a grey men's v-neck tshirt (for that whole baggy i-just-slept-with-your-boyfriend-and-am-wearing-his-shirt vibe that is in reality more of a i'm-a-mess-don't-look-at-me type of deal) and this beautiful set of rings (i'm really into the whole 12 semi-precious rings on each finger trend, but at around £15 each i can't afford it so this set is perfect), both from primark.

if you follow my instagram (read: you should follow my instagram) then you'll see that i had a little weekend getaway in london, and victoria's secret was #1 on my hit list. love a good bra, me.
i picked up this beautiful beautiful beautiful holographic silver gym bag and another set of rings from aldo as well as popping into lush's oxford street store to see what all the fuss was about. not gonna lie, it somewhat overwhelmed me, and with five minutes until it closed i grabbed one (non-exclusive, urgh) thing that had been on my wishlist for a while, the shine so bright hair balm.

also went a bit crazy with shoes - usually i limit myself to one or two pairs per season, but that didn't happen this time er... oops
 i've been lusting after the white slip-on perforated vans for a while, but when i saw this holographic pair on office's ebay outlet i though they'd be as good a substitute as any. both the black t-bar shoes and sandals are from missguided, the sandals are primarily for when i can't be bothered to pull on wellies to go to the loo at five in the morning at festivals but i'll probably end up wearing them all summer long. love em.

  10. I am a massive fan of Primark rings. I always seem to lose or misplace my rings, so buying a pack of rings for £3 from Primark is perfect as it doesn't matter is I 'misplace' them. I need to pay a visit to Victoria Secret when I am in London next week, fingers crossed they still have a big sale.

  14. Who doesn't love a sale?! You have some really lovely things, I bought the same rings from Primark last week but when I got home I realised I picked up a size L and not a size S, schoolboy error, and an annoying one as I love them!
