Hair clips

Hair clip trend has around for a while now and it’s a trend I really like but you don’t want to break the bank.

I always look for cheap alternative’s for trends like this, AliExpress is the perfect place to look. Just type pearl hair clips into the search bar and thousand come up. The main tip I have from buying from Aliexpress is always read the reviews before buying and of course expect a long wait.

They wore €1.22 each

€ 1.12

€1.07

€1.08

This clip is my favourite €1.21

As you can see, the most expensive clip I got was €1.22. The quality is amazing for that price and the wait didn’t bother me.

Penney’s/Primark Haul

I’ve been trying not to shop at the moment, but have been failing miserably as Penney’s just keeps getting better and better.

Everything is summer fashion as I’m very excited for my holiday.

First up khaki swimsuit, this is a small fit so I’d nearly size up €14

Okay I am slightly obsessed with polka dots so this dress had to be mine, it’s a linen blend and is €12

This is a matching set and it’s also a linen blend. The shorts are not to short which is perfect but haven’t said that I’m 5″1 so most things aren’t that short on me.

The blazer is €23

Shorts are €14

Last year on holidays, I suffered badly with pigmentation on my face. Yes I did have sun cream on factor 50 and regularly putting it on, I didn’t get burned just pigmentation. So this year I will be wearing a hat.

€5

Happy New Year !!

This is what I picked up in the sales, I didn’t go to mad for once.

River Island 

I was really disapointed by there sale this year, I gave myself €100 budget for river island how I couldn’t go to mad but that really wasn’t going to happen.

Khaki handbag on sale for €14 I think it was €28, I love this colour and bag looks very expensive.

690870-khaki-462ecf9d

Grey soft tie tapered trousers these are for work they are comfortable but look smart and they are on sale for €20 I think they wore €44.

Black stripe soft tie tapered trousers, you can’t see the stipe in this picture, but they are kind of sliky. I did buy them for work but they are to shinny ,I decided to keep them as I will wear them on a night out instead they are on sale for €20 again I think they wore €40. I know, I need to keep receipts.

Again another work buy, Black patent tassel loafers these are so comfortable on and perfect for work, I’m not really a heels type of girl in work and these are smart looking on sale for €24 they wore €44.

Dorothy Perkins

Rant Alert, this dress I picked up in the shop and it was on sale for €20 it was €45 again this is for work. I was so happy with this find and the dress is lovely on. So today I check online to link it on here and its on sale for €26 but onsale for £20 on the uk site that is €6 extra its always the same with Dorothy Perkins they always rip you off in euro, this really annoys me about retailers.

What I am planning to wear it with is the long black and white shirt maxi dress I picked up in boohoo a few weeks ago this bag will be perfect for adding a pop of colour to this dress.

Charcoal clutch with stud details, I spotted this bag ages ago and loved the details on this bag but its pennys and I said no way am I spending €14 on a clutch and as soon as it was reduced to €5 I had to have it.
What I am planning to wear it with simple, jeans with white shirt and grey sleeveless jacket.

Last but know means least is my favourite handbag and I even showed it all to you a few months ago maybe even weeks and I meant to pick it up but I couldn’t see it and then I spotted it on sale it was €14 reduced to €5 .
What I am planning on wearing it with well I’m going away so this is now going to become my beach bag.
