My Vouchercodes.co.uk Barganista Show & Tell Challenge!!

Hi All!!

So im entering another competition with http://www.vouchercodes.co.uk/ for the chance to win two tickets to London Fashion week *whoop* All I have to do is post my favourite bargain buys and share with you where I bought them from and how much I spent! So here we go....


Outfit One
♥ Maxi Dress ♥
Price: Free
From: I am currently a member of http://www.bigwardrobe.com/ which is a free version of Ebay where members can not only sell items but they can also swap them for another item! I have done quite a few swaps and all items are free... well except for postage, and I am in love with this site! You have to be careful of potential 'swaplifters' who may agree to swap clothes with you and never do after you've posted yours!! But i'd def recommend a swapping site to clear out the old items and bring in the new!





Outfit Two
♥ River Island Jumper & Topshop Jeggings ♥
Price: Jumper = £1.99 Jeggings = £7
From: Some people in the West Midlands may have heard about a charity warehouse in Cannock called NewLife? If not then the NewLife Foundation for Disabled Children has a superstore which recycles items from major high street and sometimes designer stores for low prices! You have to be in the mood to search around as it's kind of a TK Maxx environment and many items from here are one offs. So if you don't pick up an item your interested when its gone... its gone forever! All you have to do is become a member for £3.99 for the year! And also we can't forget the Topshop Sale rail... I always find something on that!




Outfit Three
♥ Topshop Top & River Island Bodycon Skirt ♥
Price: Top = FREE Skirt = £1.99
From: Again I havve been swapping to get this cute lil top and took another trip to te NewLife warehouse!




Outfit Four
♥ Bay Trading Dress ♥
Price: £1
From: So the Bay Trading in my local House of Fraser and a £1 rail a few weeks ago and I couldn't resist walking by! I picked up a few items but this outfit is buy far my favourite as you wouldn't think it had been reduced so much!! I love sale rails and this was perfect but sometimes it's hit and miss with these but this day was def a hit day!!




Outfit Five
♥ Miss Selfridge Bodycon Dress ♥
Price: £5
From: Again another sale rail by from the fab Miss Selfridges in House of Fraser... gotta love department stores!!




This final item is not so much an outfit, but with a trip to Bicester Shopping Village my mother picked up this sexy Dolce & Gabbana bra for only £40...




So there we have it, my fav bargain outfits!! I hope you liked them just as much as I do and I hope this post will help you for future. I'll finish off with my top bargain hunting tips:

1. Charity shops/warehouse are great for one off items at low prices, but be prepared to spend time searching!

2. Never pass a sale rail buy, you never know whats hiding between all that fabric!

3. When looking through sale rails always pick up items that catch your eye first, NEVER leave an item you seem to like more then 60% and think you can come back to it because the girl next to you will snatch that item right up once you put it back on the rail!! So even if your not sure keep it until you've decided if you really want it!

4. Use swapping sites such as Ebay.com and Bigwardrobe.com to get items for ridiculously low prices or even for FREE!! (Just be careful of the potential 'swaplifters' who may try and take your items without posting your swap to you!!)


If you would like to enter this competition then you have until the weekend to post and to be in with a chance of winning two tickets to London Fashion Weekend! Just send me an email and i'll post you the info! Wish me luck!

My Top 3 Favourite Outfits & 200+ Followers Competition!!

Hi All!

So you will have seen my recent post regarding my 200+ followers competition right? If not no worries, just take a peek here to find out the details!

So I thought i'd get the ball rolling with my very own post of my top three outfits! The outfits I have chosen are from the last six months, I thought theres no point in trawling through every single 'nights out' album I have (and trust me, theres alot of them hehe) so I just picked the outfits from more recent nights out.

So here we go....


Outfit One
Dolce & Gabbana Blazer
Topshop Top
New Look Floral Bodycon Skirt
River Island Heels

I love this outfit because it's so chick and simple! The floral skirt is the perfect length and fits perfectly for a bodycon! I also liked the way the speckles of nude accessories pulled the outfit together perfectly!



Outfit Two
Topshop Floral Bodycon

This dress doesn't go with many heels or accesories which is why i always keep them simple with tan or nude heels. I love how it stands out so much and its not your typical 'floral print' the design almost looks as though someone has painted it. Kinda reminds me of Monet 'Water Lillies' :)


Outfit Three
Vero Moda Crop Top
Leggings
Bertie Heels

This was one of those random last minute outfits! I broke the leggings rule just a tad with this one hehe! But it speaks for itself and it's def an eye catching outfit!


So those are my top three... it was a toughy but when I look back at photos I have to say I do love these the most and they do show the different sides of me and the different styles i'm into!!

So now it's your turn, now remember you must:
♥ Post a maximum of three oufits and they can be either a going out/raving/birthday outfit. You can even post a fancy dress outfit if you wish!
♥ Tell me why it's one of your favourites
♥ Link my blog into your post
♥ Comment me telling me you have entered the competition!

You all have until Midnight (GMT) on Sunday 28th February

I look forward to seeing your posts!

Face of the Day!

Hi All!!!

Heres another look I thought i'd post! I never do dark smokey looks in the daytime as I much prefer it as a night time look.. only it would be a bit more dramatic for the night. So when I decided to do something different for a daytime look I thought I pulled this off quite well :o)

Trends: Denim

Hi All!!

Spring 2010 has tipped Denim as making its comeback! With its return we'll see it mixed and matched with floral patterns, patchwork leather, western style accessories and acid washed!

I am a fan of all things demin and have been looking around for some key denim pieces. In particular dresses and here are a few items that have caught my eye...










I think all of the above are so cute, especially the first two dresses! This trend is very wearable for this Spring but what will you be wearing?

Summer Holiday Booked!

Hi All!!

My summer holiday is now booked and i'm so excited to say that I will be going to Egypt, Sharm el Sheikh in May! This will be mine and Richard's first holiday together and we are very excited! I am literally counting down the weeks til we fly out and it is currently 14 weeks until the day!

We will be staying in this hotel which is rated number 53 in the top 211 hotels in Sharm el Sheikh on Tripadvisor.co.uk which is brilliant considering the hotel we originally had our hearts set on was rated around 96!


All i can do is smile when I see a photo of our hotel, and if you can see in the corner it has its very own mini waterpark hehe :) We're going all inclusive for one week and are hoping to do a bit of this amongst other activities.....


How beautiful!!!


We are really excited!!! Okay so look out for any upcoming posts about my holiday wardrobe and the holiday itself in three months time!
