what i bought this week 1





clothes, hat, shoes: new look 
babyliss conical wand: argos

I dont really like the word "haul", I suppose it is a good way to see whats in the shops at the moment and we all like to live vicariously through what others have. I just think they are a little strange! However its one of those things I'm always asked to do and they are oddly addictive. I might start doing a weekly/bi weekly round up of the things I buy. I don't buy that much on a weekly basis, I some weeks I buy nothing, others I buy a few things and then I go a little crazy and buy lots. It really does vary! I go "shopping" quite a bit, but generally dont buy anything, I just love browsing haha!

I hadn't actually bought anything up until today apart this jumper I wore in this outfit post. However today my Mum dragged me to the shops for our usual Sunday shopping ritual. I've been super lucky and have been given a New Look Press card so I get discount, so I bought some things I'd had my eye on for a while and some easy to wear basics. I adore the shoes I picked out, I wanted as soon as I saw them. I love the patent granny-ish shoe! They are surprisingly comfy too as I find New Look shoes fit me a little bit awkwardly, I always have to size down but these fit me in a 5. I also paid for this stuff with giftcards and credit note so didn't end up spending a penny, My kind of shopping!

So excited to try out a conical wand, I've been wanting one for ages. After a quick tweet and some recommendations from the beauty bloggers I opted for the Babyliss Conical Wand 25-13mm. Not that I really style my hair all that much. And 99% of the time I really cant be bothered with my hair. I've made a mental promise with myself that I will sort my hair out and actually try and keep it looking presentable!You get a sweet Michael Jackson stylee glove too! EEE HEE!

  5. New look really is impressing me recently, nice buys, is the red top just a basic top?

  6. I have problems with New Look shoes too, but those ones look absolutely darling! Might have to go for a look tomorrow. Been searching for the perfect loafers/boat shoes for a while now.

    There's nothing like free clothes! :P x

  8. I'm loving New Look at the minute. I went through a phase where I didn't really like anything, but now I go there a lot! It seems to have really upped its game.
    Would love to see a review on the conical wand. I've got quite short hair though so not really sure whether to invest or not!

  20. I love the dress and the snuggly jumper at the end. That will be lush for winter. The conical wands are the best tools I've used to get nice, tousled curls. I don't use my tongs any more! x

  30. Lots of really classic things here! I bought my first a/w things this week a lot of black, a nice rust coloured dress and a leopard print belt. I much prefer all the a/w clothes.
    The cone wand looks great, its really tricky to get waves, my ghds just make tight spirals

  31. Really nice collection. I personally like the leopard print top and the cardigan/jumper at the end. I agree with Claire, New Look has stepped up their game.They have quite a few jems I have my eye on for autumn.

  36. Hi Lily. I love the leopard print top... I've just had a look at it on the website, but I can't tell how short it is on the torso. How does it sit length-wise?

    Thanks! xo
