Bargain Hunt

I dont usually blog about shopping and products but I do love to read or hear about what bargains and offers other people are finding so I thought I would share what I found recently.

I’m pretty behind with the times at the moment and I didn’t realise that the sales had started! Basically I get lost in the shopping world where there always seems to be a sale and so it doesn’t really occur to me to go and hunt for a bargain when the big sales happen. This weekend I actually stumbled on the sales on Oxford street where I started in John Lewis and found this really cute mini make up bag for everyday make up, lipsticks and hair bands. Then I went to H&M and found this gorgeous bikini. I have about 10 bikinis but I feel that every holiday should have its own new bikini – since I have booked my summer holiday now, I thought it was justified! 

Then I went to Oasis where most things were 50%-70% off – these trousers seemed like the perfect summer trousers for if the weather stays like this but I want to cheer myself up with summery clothes! 
This is where my Accessorize sale section begins. I love this shop so much and when I saw that everything on the ground floor was 50% off I almost ran in! Take a look at my pretty finds…
The last section is my non-sale section but things which I got on the same shopping trip. I love this summery colour from Topshop. It has a silver sparkle to it but when you apply it, it comes out quite thick and sticky and you need quite a few layers to make it look even. Below are the Leigh trousers which I now have in 5 different colours. I LOVE them, they are so comfortable and easy to wear dressing up and down.
Finally, this is a dress I found in H&M for £7.99 – Bargain! It is perfect for work when it gets really hot!

I hope you have a chance to catch the sales and get lots of gorgeous bargains!

Thank you for reading my blog!

7 X 7 Link Award

Firstly, I would like to say thank you to all my followers and friends who have shown an interest in my blog. It has been far more popular than I imagined when I started at Christmas as a little hobby. I am getting lots of pictures taken everywhere I go which has meant that i have collected a huge selection (I am even going to buy an external hard drive this week as I have no more space on my 3 computers!)

I am always looking for new blogs to follow so please make yourselves obvious to me so I can take a look!

This blog award is the 7×7 Link Award and as with other awards there are certain tasks I must complete in order to accept it…it goes like this:

I must provide 7 links to posts that I have written according to 7 categories (as detailed below). Thereafter I am to pass this award onto other bloggers.

OK so here are the categories with the links!

I’m not sure whether you will agree with me but here goes..

  1. MOST HELPFUL – has to be my post about a Graze Box  – this is a weekly delivery of healthy snacks which you can pick from their ever growing website. If you look closely, you will see how you can get your own free one! I had a lot of people emailing me about this – if you want a free code, get in touch!
  2. MOST POPULAR- I had to look at my stats for this but it is 271  REGENT STREET I think this is because I didn’t post people in my blogs for quite a while then I started to ask my friends if they minded and they didn’t. They are pretty good shots of some of my best friends on Oxford Street, London.
  3. MOST BEAUTIFUL- has to be Columbia Road Flower Market – Flower Power – amazing to look at such colourful pictures!
  4. MOST CONTROVERSIAL- I found this one quite tricky – I guess is has to be Eightsome as it caused quite a hype with people not really knowing what reeling was. Some people laughed and some people asked for details to go along too. I LOVED it, I love most things though!
  5. MOST SURPRISINGLY SUCCESSFUL- this has got to be Bake Off. I just did some baking one day with my friend and I never imagined so many people would be interested. The cakes aren’t that adventurous but they look and tasted mighty fine! (I think the pink icing helped!)
  6. MOST UNDER RATED- I would say it was Central Stroll It did get a lot of interest but not as much as I had imagined compared to other posts which I thought were less interesting. I think the bridge shots are so pretty!

MOST PRIDE WORTHY- my favourite post so far has been Borough Market, London. Partly because I had a lot of fun the day I took the pictures and had a chance to play around with the settings on my camera, partly because of the interest I had from this post. The pictures show the delicious selection of food on offer – cannot emphasise enough how much you should visit if you can!

OK and now for my 7 links:

  1. Taking Snaps – http://takingsnaps.wordpress.com/
  2. Freddie and Cinnamon – http://blog.freddieandcinnamon.com/
  3. Kathryn Dawson – http://kathryndawson.wordpress.com/
  4. Miss Renaissance – http://missrenaissance.com/
  5. Jennifer Wadsworth – http://jenniferwadsworthweddingplanning.wordpress.com/
  6. Ruby Songbird – http://rubysongbird.wordpress.com/
  7. 365 days of photos – http://365daysofphotosbyclare.wordpress.com/

Thank you once again!

271 Regent St.

Yesterday I went to go and meet my best friend Oli and Sarje. Oli had just come back from Edinburgh and Sarje from Singapore so it was a nice little reunion. We went out for lunch at Ponti’s Italian Kitchen just by Oxford Circus station (I had been shopping on Oxford street earlier in the day). I have a random selection of pictures from the day and some of them as I was trying out some new features on my camera. I am going to get a tripod this week so I can do more.

I love the look Oli and Sarje were pulling off, smart casual but more smart 🙂 Oli is very proud of his new Barbour jacket he got for his Birthday a few weeks ago – I love it.

Let me know what you think of the pictures of them? I am just starting to put people on my blog!

The highlight of my day was seeing this man. He was doing this insane dance by the entrance to the tube station and attracting quite a crowd!
