Anyway, moving swiftly on....
It was my 21st in November, which seems like an absolute lifetime ago, and I received some dolla off some wonderful friends and family. I was very good and saved all of it up & then added to the little fund with some pennies I earned from nannying this easter.
I then went and dropped the entire lot within the space of a few hours on Thursday in the capital. As you do!
First stop was Zara which is perhaps my favourite shop in the entire world. I always find something in there which I absolutely love. I was quite restrained though and didn't go too crazy....
As soon as I saw this bag I had to have it. It is so fresh and crisp for the summer and it looks so much more expensive than it's £40 price tag. Now the task is to keep it looking so pristine....
I find it so hard to photograph clothes nicely - this photo does the top no justice at all. It is the palest grey chiffon and teamed with skinny black jeans and sky scraper heels, it makes the perfect dinner outfit - right up my street :)
Next stop was the infamous Harrods. I know it is full of tourists but the store always gives me such a thrill. It reminds me of when my brother and I were little and we would go to see the front of the store lit up at Christmas. We then got to pick something out in the Arcade... aww happy memories! Armed with a giftcard - again from my birthday - I headed straight for MAC. I didn't pick out anything spectacular but ticked another few things off my never-ending list..!
I bought Bare Canvas paint which I love. It provides a great base for your eyeshadow or just evens out your eyelids if you are going without. The other item is a mineralized blush in Dainty. The swatch below shows it is very sheer - a bit of a disappointment but in hindsight probably good for the summer when my cheeks will be pink enough!
And last but by no means least, I made a trip to Sloane Street for my new Louis..
This was the main reason for my saving - I always said I wanted to invest in a bag for my 21st instead of squandering the money on clothes I wouldn't like in six months. I absolutely love it - my pride and joy - perhaps this is the feeling people get when they have children?!
p.s. I just want to say thank you to Sophie for featuring me on her blog...I feel very honoured. Please go and check the post out here if you haven't already seen it ... but please excuse my ridiculous posing and pouting...I really need to learn how to take good FOTD photos..!
