Numero Uno

Okay, first blog. Wish me luck haha!
Firstlyyy, thankyou ever so Zobo, now I have a few followers yay :) And thanks for following! You're all rather lovely.
Must introduce myself I suppose, my name's Alex. 18, 19 soon though...August 10th, don't forget it! Haha. Just gonna be showing you a few bits and bobs that I buy and have got...I'm a self confessed shopaholic. :)
Just gonna show you guys some things I got in Swindon the other week. In Matalan (?!) and Dunelm Mill.

Hope this photo is big enough! Okay, so I'd been meaning to get some pretty stud earrings for a while and never really saw any that I just HAD to have. Until the other day Mutti dragged me into Matalan, and I found these bargains! I know, I know I couldn't believe it myself haha.

Three pairs of pretty studs, gold oversized ones with pretty detailing, nice pearly earrings :) & White oversized hearts with gold outlines. Reaaal cute. A chunky gold ring with some detailing like the gold earrings. Gold feather/leaf (?) earrings. (I have some similar to these from H&M but thought what the hell!) One long pearl necklace, cheapy but lost my other one! & a cute heart pendant with another chain on. Didn't take a basket or anything into the shop so my hands were slightly full haha.

They were all around £3-4, bargainous!



Same photo but added pretty pink/coral flower that I found in Sainsburys. You can either wear it as a brooch or clip into your hair. Was around £3. Summery! :)


Couldn't believe I found this beauty (the mirror) in Matalan too, didn't even realise they had a Home section. £25!




Cute jewellery box/vanity case. I love it soo much. They had them in blue too. Got pink to go in my bedroom. This was from Dunelm Mill for £6.99. Pretty big so can fit a lot of bits and bobs in!



Dark purple velvet interior. Cute right?!


Bought a goose feather pillow and case in the Dunelm Mill sale, feels like heaven and I loove the pretty pink flower pattern. I also bought the duvet cover in the same pattern for £6.49!


'Love' photo frame. Only £3.99 from Dunelm Mill. Thought it was too cute not to buy! I want to put a photo of each my besties with me in each little frame. Zoe, Mousey, Jenny and Beth. You'll probably hear more about them as I go on. :)

Hand-painted mugs from Dunelm Mill, £1.99 each. I couldn't resist, they're so lovely. And will be great if I'm going to uni! I looove a cuppa tea :)

Lastly is a pretty vase, with pink flowers on, Laura Ashleyesque! Haha, it matches the rest of my bedroom and my Laura Ashley curtains! Woop, what a buy. And also the fakey flowers are from Sainsburys.

Wellll thankyou for reading me gabbling on and on! Hope you enjoyed :)
