Ooops! I went shopping!


Well pay day has arrived - why does the month always feel so long?! I've had to budget this month as I'm saving all my holiday money for Dubai so I have a spending limit! Yesterday, I went to the Parkgate Centre at Rotherham with my boyfriend's mum because I had never been before. One word - impressed! There was a brilliant range of shops and it also helped that the sales were on.

Real Techniques Blush Brush from Boots £9.99

Vest tops from Topshop 2 for £10/£6 each individually

River Island/Topshop £1.50 each

Barry M Pink Silver Glitter and Blueberry Ice Cream from Superdrug £2.99 each

L-R oval and coil ring both from Miss Selfridge £1 each and cross ring from River Island £2.50

Plum Maxi Skirt from New Look £14.99

When I got back to my boyfriend's house, I tried it on to show him and his comment was "it's too see-through and it's too poofy!"... budding Karl Lagerfeld in the making ha! It is a size 10, and I do agree with him, it is 'poofy' around the waist. But because I love it that much, I'm going to swap it for a size 8.

Now these are the bargains...


Let me amaze you. These beautiful floral patterned, cork wedge shoes cost me £3. Three. Pound. I am still in shock ha! We popped to Matalan and just by chance wandered over to the footwear section. I spotted these beauties and noticed they were down from £20 to £3. I couldn't say no. They are so comfy - it feels like I'm walking on air!

Black and tan sandals from Matalan £2 (in the sale)

With my student discount, I got both of these shoes together for £4.50. Flabbergasted. I love Matalan.

On pay day, I went into town after work and got a couple of bits that were on my July Wishlist.

Real Techniques Core Collection from Boots £21.99

Traditional Skin Care Glycerin and Rosewater from Boots £2.32

Jersey peplum from Topshop £18

So this is my start of the month haul! I really love everything that I have bought - I love savvy shopping! I'm thinking of doing a July Favourites post, would you be interested?

Have a nice week!

Love, Juliette xo

  14. Oh my word I can't believe you got those shoes for £3! When I saw them first on the top photo I thought "oooh they're nice, probably Steve Madden or some other brand I can't afford right now" but oh no! I love it when I find a hidden gem in a store! <3
