Haul- Topshop and Forever 21

So I went on one of my Friday evening shopping sprees again (it's getting bad! Shopping cheers me up, so it's ok, right?) I could feel the week slide away from me as I roamed around in Topshop, though I didn't buy any jeans like I had planned to, as it made me look like sausage leg lady. No, I'll leave the jeans for a slimmer time!

I did, however, purchase this lovely little slouchy jumper.


I am the queen of slouchy jumpers. I adore them. I practically live in them. It's not just the way they look, though I love that too (you can team with jeans, skirts, shorts, basically anything) but the way it makes me feel, which is, in a word, comfortable. Me. I feel like I can relax when I'm in them and still feel a little bit stylish.

I also got rather excited as I approached the makeup section in Topshop. I am having a love affair with nail polish and lipstick at the moment, it seems, and so I headed straight for those. As usual, Topshop have a great and rather vast selection of both.

My loot:

*Enchanted lipstick in 'charmed'
*Lips-shade Nevada
*Lips-shade Innocent
*Nails-shade Peaches and Cream
*Nails-shade Bees Knees

This is the first time that I have tried the Enchanted range. The colour charmed is an orangey shade, and I must admit I was partly tempted to buy this because next to the counter was a photo of a gorgeous blonde, pale model wearing the shade and looking great. Made me think it would look similar on me (due to the tones, not looks!) and I hope it is.

It's a great colour for summer, and I think it'd look good with either basics (a plain white tee and denim shorts) or a cute summery dress.

The first swatch is in shade 'innocent' which is a nice pinky colour, the Nevada is second, which is a more nude colour and the Enchanted shade is third, though it is a lot more orange than it appears in this photo. All in all, pretty excited to try out all of these.

I also ventured into Forever 21 (which was BOILING, even the sales assistants were complaining). But that didn't stop me from buying 2 brightly coloured jersey dresses (blue and yellow-I will do an outfit post tomorrow) and these funky patterned tights. I love me some patterned tights!

O.k, I've waffled on a bit here! If you read this far, you have the patience of a saint and I thank you :)
