Usually I tend to go mad when I hear the world sale but instead, this year I knew what I wanted to purchase and looked around for the best price. I have been wanting a new pair of trainers for a while now as I haven’t had a new pair since my birthday and really wanted some other than my Reebok Classics in white. I started off by looking through my regular sites such as ASOS, Office and Schuh but didn’t come across any major bargains. I soon decided that the pair of trainers I was after was a new pair of New Balance in grey. I searched that exact phrase and it came up with some other sites I would of never of thought to look at before such as M&M Direct and Size?. I finally found my dream pair of trainers and they were around half price. Yep,… View Post

Instax Mini 70 The obsessive girly mainstream teenage girl comes out of me when it comes to this gift. Ever since joining Tumblr back in 2013 I have been obsessed with the idea of owning my own Polaroid camera. There’s just something so cool about vintage looking prints that I adore and have always wanted my own to decorate my room with. 13 year old Alex is screaming inside right now as her dream has finally come true. When researching which Polaroid camera I was going to ask for I was stuck with so many to choose from, I opted for the Instax Mini 70 as I loved the idea of miniature images. Another selling point of this camera was all of the different features, the camera has 4-5 different settings from macro mode (close-up) to landscape and even selfie mode. Hella cool. Perfume Since starting my job as a… View Post

Pixi has been one of my favourite cosmetic and skincare companies this year and I was lucky enough to be gifted with lots of their products to try out. My latest package screamed rose walled gardens and fairytales. This beautiful box arrived in the post with a rose gold lock and key. It opened telling a fairytale story like in the books you read as a child and I was filled with so much excitement. Inside my box of goodies were two new skincare products for me to try, the Rose Caviar Essence and the Rose Flash Balm however it also included their new range of MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks in five different gorgeous shades. The Rose Caviar Essence is suitable for all skin types and claims to hydrate, brighten, nourish and soften the skin. The product contains capsules which contain fresh rose and flower oils. They recommend you use this… View Post

The past month has been manic. I’ve had mock exams, and the dreaded UCAS application to do as well as building portfolios for university interviews but I am now back as the Christmas holidays approach to focus on my blog for a little bit. Christmas is a lovely time of year but it can be expensive especially if you have a large family. No7 have got a huge range of offers on this Christmas to save you some money this season. No7 are known for having 3 for 2 on all their skincare range which is on pretty much all year round. This is a great way to save money this Christmas as the serums and moisturizers can make a lovely gift for someone. Another 3 for 2 which is held every year is the Boots Christmas 3 for 2 Mix and Match which contains No7 gift sets including both… View Post

Autumn fashion will forever be my favourite purely because of my love of coats and jackets at this time of year. Teddy bear coats have been extremely popular this season and they are available in pretty much everywhere. I thought I would spend a bit this time and invest in a winter coat that I fell in love with instantly when Topshop shared the coat over on their Twitter account.     This coat retails at £79 which is a reasonable price to pay for a lined, faux fur jacket however with the handy use of 20% student discount I got this gorgeous statement piece for around £63. The coat also comes in cream as well as this gorgeous dusky pink.     I have paired this jacket with some bargain items in my wardrobe. Primark has released some high-waisted jeans pretty much identical to the Topshop ones except they… View Post
