Haul Time

Crop Top - Internacionale (£6.99)

Stacking rings - H&M (£3.99) 
(ignore my chipped nail polish...I'm off to paint them in a sec!)

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl (£2.95 at Tesco)


Pretty boots - H&M (£24.99)

As promised, my haul.  Despite there not being a lot, it's atleast £40's worth; atleast 2 weeks of wages!  (baring in mind, I only work on Saturdays so, still pretty darn good for me).  

I've been lusting after one of those turtle neck crop tops since the moment I first saw one.  Finally I have got my hands on one and I'm clueless as to why it took me so long.  If you read yesterday's post, you'll know I was looking for some plain-ish tees that I could just wear with everything and in my disappointment, I gave in a bought one of these cuties.  I'm definitely going to get myself a black one too, I can see myself wearing it non stop over the summer with denim cut offs or statement trousers.  At £6.99 from Internacionale, it was one of the cheaper ones...Although it is annoyingly see through so I wish I spent a few more pounds and went to Topshop or ordered from Asos.  But alas!

I bought the stacked rings just because I think they give an outfit just a really cool touch.  I can't quite explain  it, but as a girl who loves jewellery, I'm super in love with simple things right now. 

As for the book.  I'm a huge book lover (mainly of rubbish, supernatural, teen romances; Twilight and the like).  I saw the movie of Beautiful Creatures and was quite dissapointed  but I've got a feeling that the book is going to be a lot more in-depth than the movie, that I felt, sort of ran over the key points too quickly.  I'm trying not to set my hopes too high, just incase.
   On the note of books, I really would love to 'open my mind' to more literature and good books.  Not just classic novel, anything that you feel everyone should read in their lifetime.  So, if you have any recommendations, please let me know in the comments!

Finally, my gorgeous boots!  I love them!  So pretty.  I've been after a pair like these for what also feels like forever, but the same as with the crop top, I just never found myself buying any.  It was probably to do with the fact the only ones I found were close to £70 when I'd much prefer to spent £25.  So, I did!  Without a shadow of a doubt, I love them!  Super happy with them and I think they'll be one of the finishing touches half of my outfits are crying out for.

I have attempted to film a haul twice now.  The first time I was much to rambley and my hair was a hideous, hideous mess - even more so than usual.  And the second time the entire thing was out of focus.  I looked like a pink-y, yellow-y blob.  So...Off to shower, paint my nails before round 3 of my haul attempt...

  5. Awesome boots! I just recently found some similar ones in a grayish colour and they go with so many things!
    If you're looking for a good book series - The Obernewytn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody is amazing - it takes a bit to get into but it's worth it :)
