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!

Camden High Street

The other day I went to  Camden with my best friend. I took so many pictures that I have split the pictures up – here are all the ones from Camden High Street. As you can see, it is a fairly unique place and as we came out of the tube station we were immediately met by a group of police men doing drugs testing on everyone going to Camden… for obvious reasons!

I love looking around all the crazy shops and stalls and if you want a shopping experience with a different – go here!

We had a great day and went for the ‘safe’ option of Wagamamas for lunch…

Thank you for reading my blog everyone! I have been so busy recently with work but now I can work at putting my hundreds of pictures on here for everyone to enjoy! 

Hamleys

I am such a big kid so this place is magical in my opinion. I remember coming here as a child and I don’t think I appreciated it half as much as I do now. When you are a child all you can see is the toys at your eye level, as an adult you notice the whole place is like a giant toy box, filled to the brim with exciting gadgets and decorated by some amazing artists.

Take a look….

This is the funniest toy in the shop – Wills and Kate Barbie style dolls. They were on sale for a bargain price of £70 (!) reduced from £100. They look pretty similar to real life but still pretty scary!

This is my favourite section. I have a Steiff teddy bear from when I was a baby and I loved it so much I never let anyone touch it – needless to say, it is still in perfect condition, unfortunately in a box in my parent’s attic!

Funny (!) story – my little brother had one which he took EVERYWHERE and called him ‘Teddy’…..original. Anyway, we played hide and seek with Teddy and I hid him under the stair case (we were having a loft conversion at the time). When I came back from school, the builders had blocked off the stairs – he still lives in the stairs in my childhood home. My brother wouldn’t stop crying so my parents had to go and buy him a new one – they don’t come cheap! I wasn’t able to tell anyone about this for over 10 years. Sorry to all involved.

Thank you for reading my blog, I am so pleased with the interest and support I have had so far. Feel free to email me or leave comments about my blog posts, I am trying to find more blogs to follow!
