Jumper - Primark, Scarf - Market in London, Shoes - Primark, Jeans - River Island, Hat - H&M

Hello! This is yesterdays outfit. I literally did nothing all day, all I did was watch films and eat cake, but it was so nice because I love having lazy days. I was planning to stay in my pyjamas all day but my Dad kept going on at me to get dressed. I watched Tower Heist as well, I wasn't so sure at the beginning of the film but it turned out to be really good! 
So thats all I have to say really, I've got so many tests, coursework, controlled assessments etc to be doing so I haven't really had time for any 'proper' posts, hopefully during the holidays I'll be able to do some reviews and things.

Primark Haul - 13/10/12

Hello! I went to London yesterday, and visited the new Tottenham Court road Primark. It's amazing! So much better than the one by Selfridges, its less busy and everything is layed out really well. I didn't plan to spend that much in Primark, but I ended up buying all this. Since it wasn't that busy, the changing rooms were actually accessible and we were able to try things on. I tried on seven items but only came out with one (the trousers, I found the top after), which was quite dissapointing but I did get quite a bit anyway.

After Primark we browsed some other shops but nothing really caught my eye, so before we got on the train home we had a quick look in boots. They had a three for two offer on all makeup, so how could I refuse? I got this Miss Sporty foundation after my dermatologist said that the makeup I wear is too heavy and I should look for something lighter, for younger skin. I haven't wore it yet, but I swatched it on my hand and it's very light, and very soft on the skin. I might do a further review of it once I've tried it out for a bit longer. I also got these two nail polishes, which I am very happy with. The red gel nail polish was £1 more expensive than Barry M's usual price, but I got the glittery one free so I didn't mind spending the extra pound. The gel nail polish does actually do what it says it does, It makes my nails look shiny even after it had dried.

So a pretty good haul I think! Hope you enjoyed reading!

I was recently contacted by about their upcoming shopping website, and I'm in love with the idea.

On Mallzee, you can create your own personalised shopping mall by picking out your favourite shops and brands, and they then chose things to suit your style, and showcases them to you on your homepage. You can also connect to friends by looking at their Mallzee, which makes it much more social than normal online shopping, because you can see what other people are looking at and gather inspiration and see what clothes they're in to. Also, which is a big win for me considering I'm always broke, when someone sees something on your Mallzee and decides to buy it- you get paid! So yes, you get paid for shopping, every girls dream. Mallzee currently have a competition running where you can win £100 ($155) worth of shopping vouchers as well, all you have to do is share the link to facebook or twitter, easy!

I think this is a really good idea for a website, I love online shopping and this is a brilliant way to make it more interesting. So go ahead and check it out, it isn't launching until later this year so unfortunately you can't join just yet, but if you put in your email on their website, you can sign up for an exclusive relaunch invite and be the first to use Mallzee.

Thank you for reading!
