Little bit of an announcement today...

(OOTD) £2 Bargains at Dotty P's

Good Afternoon!

I hope everyone is enjoying a lazy Sunday, after the week I had, I could not wait to just curl up this weekend and hibernate! I seemed to have picked a perfect weekend for it, what with the snow and all!

Anyway, this week was not all doom and gloom as I happened to come across the most AMAZING sale at Dorothy Perkins. I think this promotion was only in my local store, due to the fact that Burton's menswear is going to be sharing the shop with them, but anyway, they were have a £2 sale...yes, that's right £2!

When I saw this in the window I thought it was only going to be jewellery, but no, CLOTHES AS WELL!!!!

I am trying to live very frugally at the moment, my overdraft cries every day, so I am really trying hard to not spend money, but at £2 an item PLUS student have to have a look don't you!

Anyway, here are my bargains...

I am actually currently wearing this, so I guess it counts as an OOTD as well:

-Squirrel Top: £2 Dorothy Perkins (super chuffed that this is a size 8!!!)
-Floral Leggings: £2 Dorothy Perkins
-Wooly Socks: £2 Primark

Yes, today's outfit cos me £6, and yes, I am proud of that fact :)

I also picked up this gorgeous lilac denim jacket for, you guessed it, £2.

And this little number, I love this so much and it goes so well with the jacket, carrying on the price trend, this was also £2.

So I guess you could say I got 2 outfits for £8, which in my opinion is pretty good going! The sale didn't last very long, (obviously!), so I was very pleased I happened to be wandering passed that day.

So there we have it, I swear I am going to try and get in to posting more regularly, I am just having a bit of a rough time getting used to my new routine and things, but I'll get there eventually!

Until next time... :)

OOTD Day at the Races (with cake!)

Good Evening!

Did any of you just watch Felix Baumgartner jump from the edge of space?? Amazing to watch something so breathtaking.

So, as I mentioned on my Facebook, I have been to the races this weekend. We were so lucky with the weather, not so lucky with the horses, I didn't win a penny :( We still had a great time though!

Anyway, I thought I would share my OOTD with you:

Fascinator: Ebay (£6.99 bargain!!!)
Fur Coat- Vintage
Belt- Primark
Cardigan- New Look
Dress- Michael Kors (£40 down from £250 Bargain!!!!!)
Shoes- L K Bennett

So yeah, we had a fab day! I also want to show you the ace cake and buns Rosie and Sam made for me: 

So I don't know if I have mentioned before that I am a huge fan of Simon's Cat or not, but I am :) And Rosie and Sam made this wonderful marble rainbow cake for me! It tastes delicious and looks fab! As an added surprise... 

50 SHADES OF GREY CUPCAKES!!!! Personally I think these are amazing! I was not expecting these at all but I think they are fab. I loved the books and, although they were admittedly poorly written, I was still hooked in to the craze. I happen to think other books in this genre are better, such as Sylvia Day's "Bared to You" but that's beside the point. These cupcakes are amazing! The lips are my favourite!

So if you want to see more by my extremely talented sister please visit their new Facebook Page. They are now making cakes and other baked goods to order, so please go and check them out!

So that's it for today. Had a lovely pyjama day after a hectic day yesterday. So time for some Sunday night TV and an early night for me!

Until next time... :)

Leeds Adventures

Good Afternoon!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I am having a lazy Sunday afternoon after having a night at university pretending to be a fresher. Needn't have bothered because all the freshers were in bed before the third years and graduates (me) anyway!

So anyway, I thought I would share a little of my Leeds adventure this week with you. I didn't really get up to that much, just visited a couple of my old favourite places from when I lived there, and had a date with Primark. Things might appear on here in bits and pieces, I am not going to do a haul because most of it was boring and for work anyway.

So I just have a couple of snaps to share with you...

A quick OOTD for you:

Jumper- CC (a brand usually associated with an older audience but I love this jumper loads!)
Belt- Primark
Skirt- Primark
Leggings- Primark
Bag- River Island

(I do realise I need my roots doing, having them done this week!)

Lovely snap of the Victoria Quarter, I love this place its so opulent and beautiful.

Blatant posing with the Victoria Quarter sign!

We rounded the trip up at Starbucks. I met up with a friend and we just chilled and drank hot chocolates :)

So there we have it. I should really start taking some pictures of things I want to put on eBay.

So until next time...
