A New Look Haul For Y’All

I’ve just had the most relaxing weekend of 2013. After the drama of Turkey and the highs of Rock Werchter, my boyfriend and I decided what we needed most of all was a rest. We holed up at my house with a bottle of white wine, some books, the Game Of Thrones boxset and enough BBQ food to feed a small army. Our only vague plan was a trip to the cinema (to see Now You See Me, which I’ll review for you tomorrow!)

On our way back from the cinema, however, I realised my shoes were very much about to give out. A quick trip to the shops was in order.

New Look is my first port of call for shoes, especially basic ballet slippers. They might not last that long, but they’re only £7.99, and the more expensive ones I’ve tried from TopShop and River Island really don’t last long either! I picked up a sensible black pair for work, and a shiny gold pair to add to a bit of interest to boring outfits.

While I was there, these cute black ankle boots caught my eye. In the winter I love wearing boots with black tights and skirts or dresses. It’s not exactly winter now…but it crossed my mind that when I was looking for boots last winter, they’d all sold out! I decided that as these weren’t expensive, I’d grab them now, and save them for the colder months (which knowing English weather will be here all too soon!)

On the way back to the till, I passed the jewellery stand. New Look have a couple of little independent jewellery makers as well as their own brand stuff, and one of them had a sale on. I grabbed this really interesting Aztec-style necklace for just £2! I think it will look great with a plain T.

I’d also been looking for some finger tip rings and hadn’t been able to find any anywhere. I found these, with some silver and some rose gold, for £3.99 and I love them!

I was happy with my bargains and we wandered home…to find out I was up to 200 followers on my blog. I just want to say how grateful and happy I am, thank you all for following me, and I appreciate every single one of you!
