What's New in My Wardrobe?

I took a shopping trip with one of my besties on Thursday and it felt great to be in Manchester after so long without spending pennies. Primark was top of my list as I really haven't been in over 6 weeks and it didn't disappoint!

I could have blown my last 3 weeks of wages in Primark. Sometimes I can't find anything I like and other times I'm blown away by the quality and in-trend fashion they have to offer. 

1) I have the above shirt dress in cobalt blue and love it, so had to pick up this beautiful rusty faded red/brown colour too. It also comes in white, black, floral, cinnamon, brown, pink... etc. Almost every colour under the sun. This one falls just above the knee, whereas my blue one is a little shorter (something to bear in mind should you buy one - they all differ slightly.) I'm planning on wearing it tomorrow night for Fathers Day/Cousin's birthday meal out. It was £15 (but quality is Topshop worthy so worth every penny.)

2) The mustard yellow top is something I saw and was attracted to straight away but I had my reservations as with my hair colour I worry about wearing yellow. Ally assured me it did not clash or look funny and for £5 I got it. I need more colour in my wardrobe and this two pocket silky oversized top definitely screams me

3) I have Benefit's High Beam already and was not too interested in Benetint. I picked Posie Tint not just because it was cheap but because I already read Glamour regularly and this was just a bonus. I didn't expect wonders but I actually love it. On the cheeks its really quite a bright pink but looks so natural and lasts allllll day.

4) I know I know!! Not another MAC lipstick. Well, yes. The Mac counter in Selfridges is right next to the train station so we always pop in on the way home. And even though I'd already spent a fortune I was still looking for Costa Chic and Shy Girl. I tried out Shy Girl and found it not as beautiful as I'd expected? I couldn't find Costa Chic and there didn't seem to be a free Mac artist/assistant around to help (unbelievable right) but I did stumble across Snob.
Snob is one of those shades I never believed I could ever pull off. But I had a quick try on right there and then and realised its not quite as bright and in-your-face as I thought. Therefore - I bought it. Its a pinky lilac shade  and the photo is doing it no justice. The magic happens when its on your lips. I've not worn it out-out yet but I'm excited too!

5) Back to the classic French Manicure this week. Chipped already!

6) Another turquoise ring to add to the collection. I think I'd look a bit silly wearing them all at once. Again from Primark for a couple of pounds. And these amazing festival bracelets/beads are so gorgeous I wont be taking them off. 

7) I also treated my feet to a pair of Toms. This is my post about them if your interested...

Don't think I haven't noticed I have hit that 100 followers mark! AMAZING guys, thank you so so much! I love you all for reading my blog! And in celebration I have decided to give away some lovely prizes...
The give away (which I'm really excited about and keeping hush hush for now) should take place some time next week. I want to let my current give away finish first before I start a new one! 

* Don't forget its your last chance to enter my give away which ends tomorrow Fathers Day at 7.00pm
