Recent Purchases

I thought I would share a few of the items I've picked up recently, I've been so useless as blogging lately, so thought I would do a nice easy post to get back into it. Almost everyday I open up blogger and *attempt* to write a post but for some reason I don't have the energy, I just haven't felt like blogging really and I've been feeling a bit down *sadface*
 I've been on two trips to London in the past few weeks, I popped into Forever 21 as I wanted to get some long leggings for running, I found a pair and I absolutely love them, they are so comfy, I even wore them home on the plane! I also picked up a sports bra/top which is really pretty and surprisingly keeps everything in place while I run/workout! I also had a little browse in Space NK, I was in a strange mood and picked up the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock, I didn't look at the price and just bought it without even considering it. It was £28, which I think is just a tad excessive for what is essentially a creme eyeshadow and I now kind of regret it as I want to buy all the shades..I had spotted this beautiful mint green dress in Topshop the first time I was in London, it was £68 which I thought was a bit too expensive and I put it back. When I spotted a Topshop in the Canada Square Shopping Centre, I said to myself "if the dress is there, I have to get it." I guess it was fate as I walked in and there it was and before I knew it I had handed my card over and it was mineee. If you want to see what it looks like on, you can see a photo on my instagram, here. I also picked up the Clear Improvement Mask from Origins as I have really been trying to take better care of my skin as it's been so terrible lately, it's frustrating that it's worse now, as an adult than it was when I was younger, so if anyone has any skin advice, I am all ears! Finally I picked up the Essie Nail Polish in A Splash of Grenadine which is by far the most beautiful colour and is now my favourite colour!

So there's a few things I've bought recently, if you have any requests for blog posts please leave them in the comments as I've lost all my blogging inspiration lately!
