GLAMOROUS HAUL

I have done a lot of shopping recently, and I have really enjoyed bulking up my spring wardrobe and changing up my style. So when Glamorous offered me the chance to pick some clothes out, I was over the moon!
 
My favourite item I received was this 'zigzag' blouse*. I love the short sleeves and boxy fit, I'm one of those bloggers who loves and appreciates a good collar therefore this blouse is perfect. It's also a lovely material, you may not know this about me but I'm very picky about material. It looks great with my joni jeans and a leather jacket!

The next item I received was a massive grey slouchy jumper*, with sheer shoulder panels. This jumper is massive, there is no denying it. At first I was unsure whether I liked how big it was, but I've grown to love it. The sheer shoulders make it unique and it is puurfect for lounging about in. It was also a complete bargain at only £5 in the sale!

The colour of this jumper* just screams spring to me. I thought it would be great for those cold spring days,  I have nothing this colour therefore felt as though it was acceptable to add this to my already over-flowing jumper drawer.

Stripes, ahhh my secret obsession. I was scrolling the sale when I saw this gorgeous striped blouse* saying 'Ellie, buy me. Ellie, buy me', I joke I joke... instead I thought of a million stupid excuses to justify adding another blouse to my wardrobe. I (once again) love the collar and the oversized fit. I tucked it into my joni jeans in this image, but it's actually quite long and would be perfect as a bikini cover up or even just a dress in the summer with wedges and a fedora...ohh outfit already planned for the summer!

I also received a small tartan waist band* (clever Ellie deleted the picture!)  which is perfect for incorporating the tartan trend without going over the top or even adding a little something to a plain outfit and for £1.50 (in the sale) I couldn't resist!
I definitely recommend checking out Glamorous, it has some gorgeous pieces for very affordable prices. I have another item on the way, so that will be featured in a ootd soon or another post!

Sunday, ahhh the day of relaxation and usually crammed with homework and last minute revision. But not for me, mwha I got all my work done yesterday and am now enjoying a relaxing day in my onesie. So far I've caught up with a lot of blogs and youtube videos and even read some of my new book. I am now dreading school as the thought of getting home from school and my evenings being full of homework and revision is killing me! I hope you've all had a great weekend and continue to have a fabulous week.

Comment, follow and all that jazz!

IS MINERAL MAKEUP WORTH THE HYPE? ft. Sheer cover!

Mineral makeup has always been something I've wanted to try. So when Sheer Cover recently contacted me about their Sheer cover studio blogging challenge and whether I would like to participate in a one week mineral makeup tox, I would have been stupid not to!

OFFICALLY OBSESSED

There I was in the middle of Topshop, standing in front of the sale section with a pair of joni jeans in my right hand, when I saw these.
