RECENT PURCHASES | February 2013

trousers, crop tops: Topshop; skirt: River Island
Essie 'Chocolate Cakes', Barry M 'Amethyst Glitter'

As I'm sure I mentioned in my last blog post (Which was nearly 2 weeks ago, how did that happen? Oops) I've been having a bit of a stressful time of it lately. So what do you do when you're feeling a bit crap and have some spare time on your hands? Go shopping, duh. Some people eat their feelings, I tend to shop mine. I haven't done much shopping yet in 2013, due to being ridiculously busy, so everything out in the high street was new to me. I could easily have bought loads but I restrained myself, for the time being. 

As always, when shopping my feelings, I bought nail polish. I don't know what it is but after a hard day or a bad mood, I like to get a new nail polish. Probably because it's cheaper than a new pair of shoes or something like that. I'm a bit disappointed that this Essie colour shows up more burgundy than chocolate brown, as the name would suggest. It's still pretty, just a bit misleading. The glitter is a true ten out of ten winner though, I would highly recommend it. It's ridiculous and obnoxious and everything glitter polish should be (including incredibly difficult to remove, you were warned).

Of course I bought some crop tops. Topshop have an amazing selection currently and I'm really into this cobalt blue that's everywhere right now (mostly because it makes me feel like The Little Mermaid with my hair this colour) so it was just meant to be. I'm especially enamoured with the lacy number I picked up, it fits like a complete dream. I also had a poke through the sale rack and found some adorable cigarette leg trousers for only £9. Now, I'm not typically a sales shopper; I find them a bit stressful. But I couldn't pass these up. As for the red skirt, I've been wanting to find the perfect red skirt for ages and happened up this one in River Island. The pleats sold it for me.
