Primark Haul




Scrunchies: £1  Dungarees: £12  Hair slides: Sale-£1  Socks: £2

Just a little haul today of bits and bobs I've picked up from Primark over the last couple of weeks. I think I got some good bargains! I'm loving wearing dungarees at the moment, as they're so versatile and I love that these ones were only £12. I've wanted to get my hands on some scrunchies for ages now. I've envied them on so many people lately so I couldn't resist this pack of 3 for £1. They have not left my head since purchased. I picked up the hair slides for my mum cos I know she'll love them, but I most probably will be borrowing. :) Last but not least, I picked up these cute little black ankle socks for £2. Each pair is a different pattern with two polka dot and one stripe. I can't wait to wear them with creepers or cute ankle boots. I think every girl needs these in their life as I know I'll be wearing mine to death!

Let me know what you think or if you have picked any good bits up lately.

DIY Rose Print Floral Nails


         
Please excuse these awful phone photo's, I have recently misplaced the charger to my camera and therefore have to result to this. Anyway, I hope you like my rose print nails. I'm a sucker for anything girlie and a sucker for nail art too, so as you can imagine, these nails pleased me rather a lot. :)
I wanted to make mine look quite bright so went for a bright blue base coat, but I think this would look really pretty on lilac or any colour really. If you fancy giving it a go then here's how it's done..
Firstly, paint your nails with two coats of your chosen base colour. (I chose Barry M in 'Pure Turquoise')
Then once they're dry, grab your pink/red polish (mine is Rimmel in Hot Shot) and dot around 2-5 random 'splodges' on your nail. Basically rough, messy circles! 
 
Then the most important part, to transform your splodges to pretty roses. While the pink/red paint is not quite dry, grab some sort of thin tool (I just used a pen that had ran out) and draw into the wet nail polish, making little swishes to form the look of petals. Then use a green polish (mine was BarryM in 'Mint Green') to create little leaves.
There you have it, pretty rose print nails in next to no time! I'm really getting into doing nail art lately and these are my favourite at the moment, as they're perfect for summer. Hope you like this post, would love to hear any other ideas for nail art if you have any.

Primark on ASOS!


 I'm sure most ASOS lovers will have heard by now that they have started selling Primark clothes, launched just today! The best thing about this being that you can now avoid stressful trips to a chaotic Primark and finally have a nosey at their new stock in the comfort of your own home and of course, asos has free delivery, so you're still getting your low priced things without having to pay delivery. Amazing!
Sadly there are only 20 pieces on there so far, but as it has literally just launched today, then I think it's safe to say, there will be more goodies added soon. Hopefully!
Above I've put together my four favourite pieces from the small range available so far. I love the two cute printed crop tops, the denim cut out dress and would love to add those stripy beauties to my ever growing dungaree collection!

Let's keep our fingers crossed that lot's more Primark items will be added to asos asap!
What do you think about this new venture for asos?

Let the Sunshine in! Topshop Summer wishlist..


We've had one lovely sunny day and I'm already planning a complete summer wardrobe. Typical Brit! :)  Right now, while I'm trying to find a little part time job, I'm trying to be good with money and I've banned myself from shopping for a while. One can always dream however, so here is some little summer goodies I would love to buy from Topshop. How cute is this elephant print dress?! And I'm dying to get my hands on some jelly shoes. I know what I'll be spending my first wages on as soon as I get a weekend job!
Hope you all like my Topshop summer wish list. :)

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend everyone.
