Summer Sales Haul

I got back from a gorgeous week in Cornwall to spontaneously booking a week to Tenerife in September. 
So excited for the Siam Park, it sounds amazing!! 
Also it is supposed to be ridic.. hot!
Here's a few sale buys towards my holiday wardrobe.

Head to NEXT for any bikini.
 I always mix and match I think they look more flattering and these are cheap as chips! The bikini top is £3 and was £12 and the bottoms are £2! Yes £2! I love the bikinis here because they are sized to bra size rather then a 10, 12 and so on.. 
A definite holiday bargain! 
Hurry as the popular sizes always go first.

I'm not a massive fan of Dorothy Perkins clothes as many of my purchases seem to have had extremely shoddy sewing and not lasted longer then a week. However they have surprised me with the choice of jewellery they have to offer in the sale. 
The white sequin collar is £1!! I love it and the pastel necklace was £2, it also came in a longer version.

Matalan have also really come along way recently with what they have on offer. I've been wanting an envelope clutch forever! 
This blue beauty is £4 and was £8.

Primark have a decent sale with the mirror print being a big trend at the moment, this pretty skirt was only £5. There was alot of cheaper ones but the fabric for this is alot more forgiving and less 'cheap looking'

Have fun in the sales....

Uni House Move 3

I thought I would share some pictures with you of my new house.
On this crazy weekend we moved out of a 6 bed room house to a two bed with just the other half. (God help me!) 
I came to realise how much STUFF I have!
Here is how the house looks now thanks to my mum and Danny's mum, 
we've made it abit more homely.
Also there was a rainbow on the way back from a much needed pub meal!(Coincidently placed at the top of my street)

My gift from the lovely guys at Matalan.  
At the Manchester Blogger Carat event which gave us some great advice on monetizing your blog.
So expect some changes soon!!

You can buy this gorgeous holiday bag here
The A/W lookbook for Matalan really surprised me, there was some great pieces at great prices! Which sold it for me, being a student Topshop is far too pricey.
Next on my bag list is this bargain for £8!

Making use of all my magazines on our coffee table which was £3.50 from IKEA!
As you can tell I have a slight obsession with candles and fairy lights. Any homeware bloggers I would love your links for some more ideas for our new house!
