I moved to South America earlier this year, so High Street shopping has been a little challenging (we have most of the High Street shops from the UK here, Zara, Pull & Bear, Forever 21, Bershka, and others from the same company as Zara, with the same style). But it's triple the price due to the importation (actually apart from Accessorize, which is the exact same price...) I've generally been asking family and friends to send over stuff or ordering from sites that allow reasonable international delivery.
I will post a Wish List at some point, containing my endless love for Cath Kidston bags, anything velvet and Victorian...ish, collared shirts ETC. Recent purchases...

Pull & Bear, Dr Martens, H&M and TopshopCollapse )

Caution: Extreme Shopping Ahead [02 Mar 2012|07:38pm]

Well, extreme for me :/

Greetings from sunny Aberdeen! I am a makeupaholic and went a wee bit crazy this past week.  Basically I'm from Trinidad (in the Caribbean) but since moving to Aberdeen 4 years ago, I've gotten quite pale and my foundations don't seem to match.  Either they're muddy or look pale in camera flashes.  So I went into Inglot who are having a deal on where you get foundation, face powder and blush for £25.  A good deal right?  Anyway dangerous pics ahead...well not really that dangerous.

[ mood | accomplished ]

I don't know about anyone else but I'm really enjoying the arrival of Forever 21 to London. Very affordable, great range of stuff and the quality seems pretty decent.

Shopping Post - River Island A/W 2012 Edition [29 Jul 2011|03:14pm]

[ mood | bouncy ]

I bought my very first items in the new Autumn/Winter range at River Island yesterday!

They cost me only £55 in total as I had a £50 giftcard I'd saved from Christmas specifically to buy winter boots at this store! I do River Island boots (& bags)!

This bag cost £40. I couldn't resist it - it feels amazing to stroke! LOL I did have a slight panic as I came out of the shop that I may have unknowingly bought real fur, but it's not! *wipes brow* It's bloody huge! lol

These are the boots I decided on! I needed some flat, warm boots as England is getting more snow than ever during the winter now. And these boots are so freaking comfy it is unreal!! It's like walking on cushions! :D I can't wait to wear them! They cost £65.

Hello, me again.

Here are some outfit photos from the last couple of weeks, mostly work outfits. I apologise that this is mostly a tour of the changing rooms of Coventry, I just can't get up in time to take proper photos before work!

Some outfits of recent times [04 Jul 2011|08:49pm]

Hello! So it's been a while since I posted here. Since this community seems to be undergoing a bit of a revival of the last week or so, I thought I'd post some of my recent outfits.

I apologise in advance that the quality of these varies considerably. But then it wouldn't be a THS post without a few mirror shots, would it?

The skirt is from River Island. The pink camisole, denim jacket, black & silver swallow necklace, and silver wrist cuff are all New Look.

I'd love to see what everyone else is wearing in this very un-British heatwave! :D I miss this community!

River Island Sale [30 Jun 2011|03:18pm]

[ mood | content ]

I went to the River Island sale today. Not at 7am as I swear I don't understand why people go so nuts for sales!! If I really want something, I'll buy it but only then. I won't buy something just because it's cheap. I do have a lot of willpower in sales (although sadly not for Starbucks!).

Small post [15 Jun 2011|04:36pm]

[ mood | sore ]

I only bought a few things today as I was wearing new heels & I was in pain after 30 minutes! lol

But here is a photo post of what I bought!

Some of the pictures look kinda weird (which makes my skin look awful) because I had to brighten them a lot to make the colours & prints stand out, with the weather being dull when I took the photos! So, sorry about that!

Is exposing half your ass in a thong deliberate or poor belt choice? [28 May 2011|03:14pm]

[ mood | confused ]

I'm sitting on the bus yesterday and this beautiful black girl gets on, looks my age and stunningly curvy. We exchanged a smile and I thought she carried herself with poise and class.....until she sat down and showed she was exposing half her ample bottom and ultimately pointless (due to size) thong. Is this something women do deliberately out of pride from their ass or is it a wardobe malfunction?

new shoes and help please :-) [24 Feb 2011|07:50pm]

I got these Bertie 'Zenobia' boots last week,  £75 in House of Fraser sale

 I love them but I'm kinda stuck in a shoe-rut, most of my shoes are black and go on with black tights everyday etc

What would you wear with them?

Advice needed! [22 Feb 2011|07:44pm]

Helloo, first post, and already i'm after advice! :P

I have this:

and these:

What colour tights do I wear with them? I don't want anything too transparent / thin, which makes things harder. Do the boots and dress even go together? I also have some brown brogues that may go better, but I have the same issue - which tights? Going tight less is not an option.

Just because I love it so.. [20 Feb 2011|05:00pm]

After seeing this a couple of months ago and not being able to get my size in the shop or online I resigned myself to the fact that I would never own this jacket. That was until yesterday :)


Photo doesn't do it justice. It's so soft and loverrrlyy :)

This is only a tiny post but I thought it would help to try and make this comm more active again.

Heres my purchases from Primark on Friday. I did also buy a dress and a playsuit but I didn't take any pictures of those because I'm going to return them tomorrow.
