Primadonna girl, All I ever wanted was the world

It's been another week of going out and shopping for me, some things never change!
I feel like I've wasted the sunny days by being inside shopping or listing things on eBay but I managed to enjoy a few cocktails out on Mill Lane in Cardiff this weekend and get out and about meeting a few friends for coffee. It has been manic in the library where I work because lots of people have dissertations due in and are taking books out for the Easter holidays. Can't wait to have a four day weekend next week and head off to Manchester. Beyond excited for my trip, planning what I'm wearing already and where I'm going for an afternoon tea.

Here are a selection of grainy phone photos from my weekend (never seem to have my camera on me when I'm doing something fun!)

going out, navy blue asos dress,

Went out for a friends birthday on Saturday and ended up in Metros, which is a slightly dodgy club that has really cheap drinks and plays rock and pop punk. Had a blast! I wore my favourite ASOS navy lace dress and my brooch from Rose Tinted Vintage and Revlon Pink About It lipstick.

I treated myself so some new undies in the very lovely Boux Avenue store in Cardiff this weekend, indulged in some hangover breakfast and have been reading more of A Song of Fire and Ice in my garden.

I've just sold about ten dresses on ebay and most of my clothes don't fit me anymore so I've been on a bit of a spending spree splashing out on lots of dresses.
The first one is from New Look via ebay and only cost £6, it still had the tags on. The stripey jersey one was a bargain at £8 in Primark and the lace one was £15 from there too. The Navy dress with a collar is from Vero Moda. I have more than enough to keep me going but I bought this Republic dress on ebay for £5 too.
I'm thinking it will look nice with my biker jacket and some black tights, all the money I made on ebay has been spent already!

I'm going to Ladies Night along with some of my favourite south Wales bloggers tomorrow to take advantage of lots of discounts and beauty demonstrations. It's a shame I don't get paid until the next day but I might pop into New Look and Boux Avenue and I'm on the lookout for a good blusher brush, any recommendations?

  1. The dresses you have chosen look geat I love the stripey one. :]
    How are you doing with finding wellies. I found some ones that fitted me in RiverIsland in the end. I've also now got some ankle ones that I love. I've also tried plain blackones on in the shoe market - they are really wide and fitted with room. XX

    1. Not good but the ankle type ones sound good, hadn't really thought about those but even when it rained the last time I was at Reading I didn't need knee high ones so they would be great. Less heavy to walk around in too xx

  6. Lovely new dresses :) I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, I too may head over to Boux Avenue and treat myself to a new bra, depending on if I can be-bothered to have a fitting, normally I don't bother buying one cause I can't be bothered with stripping off! xx
