New things - My top recent purchases




 This is in no way sponsored content I promise, I just wanted to take the time to show you what I've been loving in the last few weeks. At the moment I am really loving this slightly warmer weather (ok so maybe not that warm but you get me) so I have been able to wear less layers key finding lose fitting shirts this one black and white dotted one was found on Sick chick Chic's depop and I have literally worn it everyday since I received it. Now I am trying to be a little bit more chic and have spotted some fab but for me personally unaffordable cultch bags (I am a big bag lady so I hate spending loads even on a fair sized bag) but I snapped up the round leopard print shoulder bag from T K Maxx but it's a label called LYDC, and it was just what I was looking for and for £9.99 I couldn't complain.
I am forever in my black Zara jeans but I spotted these blue jeans from Newlook and oh my they fit perfectly on my tiny little legs, not often I can find ankle grazers that fit my hips so I snapped these up and they work so well with my new dusky pink bow flats from Zara, I couldn't believe how cheap they were for the quality. It's what I have decided to put on my feet for London Fashion Week Festival. My chosen perfume is le vie est belle but when I came across white amber in Next it was surprisingly lovely I picked up the smaller version just so I can pop it in my handbag


Now I probably shouldn't talk about my book collection (It's shockingly massive) as I don't need anymore books but I had to get Sarah Knights book's as I had read so much hype and to be honest I do need to get my sh++t together, I am half way through and I just love the way she writes. I'm not to sure how I came across Mel Wells Goddess revolution, but I am so so glad I did, after developing an eating disorder last year, this book is really really helping me feel that I am not alone and Mel does actually know what she's talking about. I really didn't need this notebook from paperchase but it was £2 and works as the best bullet journal I've ever owned so I wont be complaining.


You're probably wondering why I have included my passport in this post, but It was my biggest purchase of the last few weeks, me and Jaymie are headed off to morocco in a few months and I bit the bullet to get it renewed and its probably my favourite purchase, as I am planning a few fun trips in the near future. When I was in T K Maxx the other day I found this Nica backpack in the sale and I couldn't resist it's the perfect size for me, as often backpack swamp my 5ft figure, took it for it's first outing today and it's so comfy. Can you tell I love colour? ha! When I saw this jumper and Leopard print top in H&M Brighton I thought it would go well with my new chic transformation also kinda works with my slight rock look.
The lovely Susie at Baia Bags sent me the small pouch in the fabric I designed for her  I think for ss16 and it's such a wonderful quality and I am really pleased with how the material turned out. For last but not least I saw Helen Anderson bought a copper cafetiere from Wilkinsons and I made the boyfriend help me hunt it out and I am not disappointed, I am trying to cut down on coffee shop coffee so this purchase is helping me love black coffee again.

So there are my top purchases in the last two months, I love a good bargain, what have been your top purchases recently?
