Weekly Wants #1

Friday, 19 July 2013

So I want to start a weekly post on things that I have been wanting to get. Whether I post this every week I don't know but I hopefully will post this frequently. I am always online looking at new products so this is what I want this week.

 1. Inhibitif Advanced Hair Free Serum 240ml - £29.99
So I recently saw something on TV about hair minimising serums which I found interesting as I didn't have a clue that they even existed. I'm always looking for anything to help hair removal as I unfortunately have naturally dark hair so it's noticeable. I would love tor try this out on my legs as I hate having to shave them constantly!!. After reading reviews, it seems to be really good as long as you use it religiously every day.

2. Essie Nail Polish- First Timer
I have never actually bought a Essie nail varnish as they are quite expensive in my opinion. However I love the colours and after seeing loads of Youtube videos saying how good they are I'd really like to try this one out. I love the colour of this one it's a lovely mint green.

3. Orange Alabama Basketball Top- PrettyLittleThing.com- £16.00
I absolutely adore this top. I've been getting into fitness more or attempting to this summer so I'm kinda digging the whole athletic trend going on. I'm currently obsessed with anything orange so this top is just perfect. It looks so comfy and light perfect for summer really. I would love to wear it at Reading Festival.

4. Olivia Blue Layered Crop Top- PrettyLittleThings.com- £16.00
I love this top and it reminds me of something I saw in River Island but cheaper. Again I love the floaty light style of it. I can imagine even wearing this in Autumn/Winter with disco pants :)

5. Day Dreamer Floral Crown- Dolly Bow Bow- £15.00
I love these floral crowns they are just so adorable. I really love this one as it's so girly and pretty very different to what I usually go for. I would love to get this to wear to Reading Festival (so excited!!). It will be the perfect way to hide the disgusting state my hair will be in aha

So yeah that's my first weekly wants post (I don't know it that names any good) but yeah. What have you guys been loving this week?? If you have any posts like this on your blog please leave a link I love looking at them. Thanks for reading this.

Recent shopping trip purchases

Thursday, 4 July 2013

So instead of doing a haul on my Youtube channel I thought I would show what I got on a recent shopping trip I went on with one of my closest friends Lizzie. It was the first time I got to have a good old catch up with her since being back from university and I have missed talking to her sooooo much!
We went to a lovely little town near where I live called St Albans. If you live in or near Hertfordshire I would recommend going there as personally I think it's beautiful. I wish I took some pictures, that's the plan for next time. I will learn haha :'). It's got your usual shops but also has cute little shops to and cobbled streets. And there is an amazing park which is just amazing to go to on a warm summers day. Anyway so I did a little bit of shopping and got mainly clothes as I am obsessed at the moment. Summer clothes this year just seem to be everything I love, particularly summer dresses. I have been shopping a lot recently and should stop as I'm not exactly made of money. Anyways stop babbling Katie...

The first shop we went to was Topshop. I adore the Topshop there and it seems like a must to buy something each time I visit it.
I bought this coral crop top as I immediately fell in love with the colour. I think coral with a tan just goes so well not that I have a tan. I also wanted a loose crop top as I'm not so keen on my upper body area so the fact it's loose makes me feel a lot more comfortable. I got it in a size 14 as that the biggest size they had and it's baggy on me so the sizing is good. I definitely need to wear something high waisted with it though as my stomach should not be seen out. Definitely wanna tone up during my summer off university.

I purchased my very first lipstick from Topshop. I chose Brighton Rock as I've seen a few Youtubers wear it and love the colour. It's a bright almost bubble gum pink colour and is really pretty. I can't wait to wear it. I tried it on and I like it I just need time to adjust to brighter colours. Trying to venture out a bit more.

Next I popped into Boots successfully resisting my recent obsession with buying nail varnishes and make up. I did however buy a new beauty product. I have wanted something for improving stretch marks for a while as unfortunately I suffer from them quite badly. It's due to losing some weight over years (please don't feel like I'm bragging about it cause I honestly don't want it to come across that way, trust me I know how hard it is!). Anyways I was looking at buying bio-oil as I've heard such great things about it, but I just cannot justify the price of it. Then Lizzie mentioned palmer's to me and I found the Palmer's massage cream for stretch marks. I've only used it a couple of times so can't give a full review on it but maybe down the line I'll post a blog or video about it :)


Woop H&M my favourite!! This shop is dangerous!! I bought this white t-shirt as I really loved the design on it. Every piece of clothing I've seen with blue and white on I just seem to really like. The A has no personal meaning to me I just thought the design was interesting. I'm going to say it stands for Awesome ;)

 I bought this adorable guess you could call it bowler style hat. I love hats I just never seem to find any that suit me. Lizzie insisted it suited me and I've fallen in love with it. For £7.99 it's not bad and I would love to wear this to Reading festival. I think it's gonna just add interest to any boring outfit and hide that state known as my hair.

Sorry shocking photo quality :/ (my apologies). I bought a simple belt as I only have one black belt from New Look and its starting to get a bit ruined now. I wanted a belt with neon colours and I loved the Aztec style pattern on this. This wrapped round a cute white summer dress I think will look sweet :)

Right guys so that is everything I got. I got some pieces that are quite different to my usual taste which I like. I wanna mix things up a bit :). I will add prices when I get back home, I've been at my uni house for a few days as I've done some work experience (hopefully write a blog post about that tomorrow).
Thanks for reading :)
