Shopping Haul :)

Shopping Haul :)

In the UK all non-essential shops have been closed since just before Christmas but as part of the easing of lockdown measures they re-opened on the 12th of April so I decided to have a bit of a shopping spree and buy a few things 🙂

I have been doing quite a bit of online shopping as well so I think I will start with the few bits that I bought online 🙂

The first shop that I looked at online was a brand called Noize who are a sustainable brand and this sweatsuit is made from recycled plastic bottles! I originally heard about this brand through Kalyn Nicholson and decided to order a jumper and sweatpants because #Lockdownfashion 🙂 I absolutely love these and will 100% be wearing these all the time!

The second place that I had ordered some clothes from was a brand called Lucy and Yak which I found out about from my friend Ellie as she was wearing some of their dungarees last time I saw her 🙂 I ordered a purple corduroy dress, a orangey skirt and some red dungarees however I haven’t taken a photo of them because they need to be altered as the legs are slightly too long 🙂 Lucy and Yak are also a relatively new sustainable brand 🙂

The final place I ordered from was a shop called Magical Day Apparel which I found through Carrie Hope Fletchers Instagram and fell in love ❤ I ordered a few pieces which really spoke to me and I love them!!!

The first shop that I went into when shopping in person was Primark because I needed a few bits from their homeware section but decided to have a look at some of their clothes as well and picked up one or two bits 🙂 From the homeware section I picked up some reed diffusers because I love candles but don’t like burning them when I’m out so I felt like reed diffusers were a good alternative 🙂 I then picked up some baskets for my skincare drawer and some notebooks 🙂 I finally picked up 2 t-shirts and a PJ top which I just couldn’t resist 🙂

The next shop I popped into was Tiger because I have missed going in there and finding the most random things! The first thing I picked up were two flower pots because they were so cute and I had seen them in the window when walking past last week 🙂 I then picked up a Yoga block as I didn’t have one of my own and have been borrowing my mums 🙂 I think I might try and pick another one up next week!

Two other shops I went into were The Works and also HMV 🙂 I went into HMV to pick up Taylor Swifts new album and then into The Works to pick up some storage boxes as I was looking for something to store my Camera stuff in as I have spare lenses and information packets that I wanted to pack away safely and neatly 🙂

One of the final places I went into was M&S and picked up some comfy jeans which I didn’t actually take a picture of (such a terrible blogger I know!), I then went into the GoodMove section and picked up some new leggings and also a t-shirt as I needed some more summer work-out tops 🙂 I then found a cute t-shirt with flowers on it which I just had to pick up 🙂

The final shop I went into was GAME and picked up some POPs as I have been wanting some bits to perk up my bookshelves and I think they are really cute so I picked up a Hermione and Mulan pop 🙂

I also went into Waterstones and picked up a few books but I think I will show those in a separate post 🙂

Let me know in the comments what you will be picking up on your first trip to the shops 🙂

Best Places to shop at Christmas :)

Best Places to shop at Christmas :)
  1. Camden- I absolutely love going to Camden to buy Christmas presents as there are so many different places and things that you can find- the market there is so cool with themed hoodies, prints and jewellery. The only thing with Camden is that you have to pick stuff up when you see it otherwise you may never find it again!
  2. Etsy- 2 years ago I did my entire Christmas shopping on Etsy which was so much fun and so easy! You can find themed items based on people’s favourite tv shows/movies which is so much fun and you know that you can find things people will love 😊
  3. Amazon- Amazon prime is a lifesaver during the Christmas season! If you suddenly realise you’re seeing a friend earlier than you thought then at least you can get something the next day!
  4. Superdrug: Superdrug always do such cute gifting and this year is no different 🙂 I am forever popping in their saying I’m looking for Christmas presents but ending up picking bits up for myself 🙂
  5. Red Bubble- I have bought so many stickers from Red Bubble and I will definitely be buying some of my Christmas presents from here this year 😊 The products on red bubble are made by independent artists which I think is so cool as it means that you are also supporting local artists and businesses 💕

Let me know in the comments where you like to shop for Christmas 😊

A Day in my Life- 16.2.19 :)

A Day in my Life- 16.2.19 :)

On the 16th of February I went up to London with my Mum to see the West End Show Waitress. To start the day we had breakfast in Starbucks and then headed to Oxford Street. We went into H&M, Lush, New Look and then finally we went into the Spectrum Collections Pop Up Shop in Carnaby Street. I love Spectrum Brushes and because the Pop Up Shop is closing at the end of February they had some really good discounts.

After shopping till we dropped in the Spectrum store we decided to have an early lunch at Byron Burger because their Halloumi Fries are so delicious and we were going to the matinee of Waitress so needed to eat early. After lunch we popped into a place called The Theatre Cafe which is in Shaftesbury Avenue and has signed posters from most of the West End Shows. They also have Theatre Themed drinks and props from many West End shows including the Broom used in the original production of Wicked.

After the Theatre Cafe it was time to go to see Waitress. The show was so amazing and I absolutely loved it 🙂 Katherine McPhee has an amazing voice and the music is incredible- the music for this show was written by Sara Bareilles and the show is based on the film Waitress which was released in 2007 🙂

Let me know in the comments if you have seen either the film or the musical Waitress 🙂
