Here's a few things I've bought recently! Summer sales have been fabulous as per usual, and my eye for fashion has been awakened now that school's over for the summer. Accessorize especially had fab deals on, my favourite being their 70% reductions. Claire's also had a 3 for 2 deal on earrings, so naturally three pairs had to be purchased. However, I'm disappointed as the sterling silver moustache earrings have broken after one wear, with the post unattaching completely. The studded bag shall be used for school come September, but for now I'm going to happily show off this £9 beauty! Mum spotted it and I loved it instantly - also coming in a nude colour, yet the black is more edgy and punky in my opinion. We spent a while in Clarks trying on some of their sale shoes, and I left with a pair of strappy, jade coloured sandals. They are very supportive and I think are genuine leather, or perhaps the strong and sturdy faux material, I'm unsure. They're going to need some breaking into to become comfortable, but it's definitely worth it. Just about the same applies for my £4 primark slip-on plimsolls, practically disposable but comfortable and great for the summer. Will probably pick up a navy and white pair at this rate - snug, comfortable and they stay on really well! Very, very happy.

I finally purchased a new hairdryer, and this one was a bargain at £11.99 from Argos. After I use it more I may just have to dedicate a post to it. The cross tee is so summery, lightweight and has pretty beading..what more could you want? Also, they attached many spare beads in case any fall off, a godsend as I'm forever breaking things, yet not having the equipment to fix them with. As for the hair doughnut, I'm sorry I don't have a picture of it out of my hair, but since I bought it for £1 it has been in my hair non-stop! I love experimenting ways of using it, and seeing how well it suits this lovely summery heat in London. Lastly there's the watch, one that I've been wanting for a while. I've had to adjust it considerably to fit my awkwardly small wrists, but now that it fits I love it. Small, practical and stylish. Once again, I'm very happy.
