Summer Shopping

So, I booked my Benicassim tickets last week, just in time before everybody's student loan's hit in, and now I think they're sold out pretty much everywhere. So phew! I've decided that any clothes I buy from now on are for Benicassim, so can be worn in the sun. Oh my, just thinking about it gets me so excited! It's the best thing ever!
As you know I'm back on the ebay bandwagon, and after being screwed over so many times last week by forgetting to check on my bids and losing out. I.e to the most fabulous jumpsuit that went for £14.. I would have gone up to £20 it was that gorgeous. I managed to win this beautiful Sass & Bide sequined kaftan for £25 and I just love love love it. 

This halter neck cropped top came from asos today and it's so pretty! I tried it on with my high waisted black skirt from H+M and it looks cute!

I've also been ordering bikinis like there is no tomorrow, but we all know Primark do fabulous cheap bikinis, perfect for mixing and matching tops and bottoms. Boss.

I also found this Miss Selfridge jumpsuit in a second hand shop in town, for £4.99 except mine is in black. It's £38 instore, so I saved money to go towards more holiday clothes... fashion maths is amazing. 
So for now, I'm watching the Sex And The City Movie and doing some writing. Have a good monday girls and boys.

My MAC 182 Kabuki brush arrived-and it's real! :)

I'm like a hot chick that you can't even touch..


The O.C

I'm watching season one on DVD as I do some college work. It reminds me of GCSE year, Ryan and Marissa are first getting together. I love it. So watch it, it'll make you feel so good. :) Have a great Tuesday. 

Easter Week

Last week was a little tumultuous for me. Ups and downs galore. First off, I was ill, so I couldn't go to one of my friend's garden party which sounded, and looked amazing. Second off, I got told on Tuesday I had a job interview for a weekend job the next day. Which I didn't get :@ but then... I got offered another job working in the Kirsty Doyle shop in the Bluecoat Chambers in Liverpool which is soooo exciting! I can't wait! 

Yesterday, me, my Mum, and my Dog went to Frodsham, which is a little cute village in Cheshire. There was this amazing place which sold all kinds of antiques, vintage jewelry, clothing, furniture... I literally could have spent sooo much in there. There is no other feeling than walking into an Aladdin's cave of treasures, just knowing that you are going to buy something from there. The excitement of walking around, turning on your Magpie trait and keeping your eye out for all things shiny..
A couple of pics
Black and White art deco 
necklace £2
I am almost tempted not to put this photo up because of the state of my nails, but I just had to show you this "ring." I put ring in speechmarks because it is actually a lipstick holder and mirror! But the lipstick holder fits over ones finger so well, and looks much better than prettying up your lippie! Ring/Lipstick holder £2

I also bought a tan leather satchel/saddle bag which smells divine (how lovely does real leather smell) anyway, it was in really good condition, it's a perfect size and i've wanted a little leather bag exactly like that for ages. 
I did buy a few other things, such as a blue sequined top, a little tiny perfume bottle, which I intend to make into a pendent, some little bits n bobs of jewelry and some fabric, as I have recently unearthed my sewing machine. woop woop.
