I'm back

So my camera broke and I was feeling quite unmotivated fashion wise, not to mention being super busy with work and stuff. Saving for a new camera but in the mean time the camera on my new phone is fantastic and is super easy to blog from sooo I'm gonna try doing it this way. Means I can blog more regularly as I can do it on the go and there's no faffing of downloading the photos on to my laptop and stuff (which is the bit that bores me and I can never be bothered to do haha) so much more straightforward!

Anyway heres my outfit today :)

So appalled

Jacket- H&M, Top - thrift/diy, Leggings - Primark, Lita lookalikes -Ebay

Sorry for going AWOL for a bit, just been busy with work and stuff. I'm on holiday from work at the moment so I can post more :). Got an exciting week coming up me and the boyfriend leave to go to Paris for four nights on Thursday, we get back on Monday and I have my first driving lesson on Tuesday. I literally cant wait till we go I'm spending today finishing off packing (I am so bad at packing I always horrendously over pack!) and tidying up my room. Time seems to be going awfully slowly! Minus the jacket this outfits pretty bog standard but I wanted to show you the jacket its possibly my favourite thing I've perchased in the last few months. Cant wait till the weather gets a bit warmer so I can wear it without having to layer it under a huge coat!

Bargain of the month

Sunglasses - Primark? (very old!), shirt - Primark, Velvet Leggings - Next, Shoes - Topshop, Bag - Zara
Hello! Just a quick post to show y'all this absolute bargain of a shirt I bought last week in Primark! I only popped in there on my lunch break to find a cheap cardi as my work was freezing (the heating's always playing up I'm either boiling or frozen), I spotted it just about to leave and I fell in love with the colour of the print and then fell a little bit more in love as I drew closer and realised it was fishes! So cute and I havent seen anything else with fish printed on it. It reminded me of a shirt I was going to buy from Topshop a little while ago probably for about triple the price - This shirt is only £12! Decided to break my spending ban and purchase it as it was so cheap. Me and the boyfriend are off to Paris for a long weekend at the end of this month so I'm trying to keep lots of money aside for a Parisian shopping trip!

Anyone else picked up any bargains?

Shirt-Thrifted, Skirt-Primark, Shoes-eBay, Bag-River Island, Collar studs- Miss selfridge

Sorry I haven't posted all week, I think I finally caught the cold that's going round :( been feeling so rubbish. Anyway had a day off work today and this is what I wore - minus the gigantic heels but they arrived the other day and I couldn't resist showing them to y'all. These are the UNIF Hellbound copies I purchased from eBay the other day and for a fraction of the price of the real things I think they're pretty alright! (AND SO COMFY YOUR FOOT IS PRETTY MUCH FLAT). The skirt was from primark a month or two back the material is lovely and soft and its nice length, perfect day to day skirt, the shirt I thrifted years ago and is probably my wardrobe staple.

In other news I got tickets to see BEYONCE today! I am so excited!! I've been to my fair share of gigs and festivals but never anything at the o2, Are any of you going? :)

Glam Rock

Top - Old (mum's old ballet cardigan) Disco Pants - American Apparel, Boots - Office, Bag - Zara
Meet my new boots/stilts I bought yesterday for only £20 in the Office sale - reduced from £95! I know they probably aren't everyone's cup of tea but I love them. My mum said they remind her of the boots ABBA used to wear haha so she's not a fan. Going for the Glam rock vibe I paired them with my black disco pants and this cute ballet cardigan that used to be my mums when she was my age. This bag I got for Christmas with a silver metal trim matches perfectly with the silver trim on the shoes.

Sorry I haven't posted this week I've had a very busy week at work, we had to go to Reading Bhs and help get the store looking fantastic for a visit, ended up working verrrry long days!

Pumped up kicks

Hat -Next, Top & Jeans - Topshop, Jacket - Vintage , Shoes - River Island
Pretty casual outfit this evening, I'm back to work after having a week off and intensely tired hence the bedraggled hair and lack of make up. Matching my hat with my jeans today, and my jacket and top with my shoes matchy matchy haha. I bought these flatforms a month or two ago after realising my total lack of casual shoes, being a short girl I want my shoes to give me a bit of extra height so flatforms are perfect for me! The jacket I found in Newbury clothing warehouse which is basically like a huge really well organised charity shop, If you live anywhere nearby I would advise a visit I've found so many cool pieces there!

Can't tell me nothing

Earrings- Topshop, Necklace - Primark, Shirt - Thrifted, Lita lookalikes - Ebay, Rucksack - River Island
This is what I'm wearing out tonight, haven't had a proper night out in forever so I'm quite excited. I found this beautiful shirt in a charity shop the other day I think it was about £4 which I consider a bit expensive for charity shop prices but hey still a bargain! The necklace was another bargain I spotted in the clearance section of my local primark for a pound or two, Its so cool and really hard to describe haha the pieces are sort of clear and sparkly but in the light they sparkle different colours, you can kind of see in the pictures. Well done primark! Chucked on my Lita lookalikes as they are my go to shoes at the moment.

Total Life Forever

Crop Polo - Vintage, Disco Pants - American Apparel, Lita lookalikes - Ebay, Rucksack - River Island
Quite a casual outfit today, I had to pop into town to run some errands earlier but other than that i've just been chilling at home and trying to sort through my masses of clothes - I need to get rid of some! In looking through my clothes I came across this cute cropped polo top I picked up in a charity shop ages ago and haven't worn yet. Thought it looked cute paired with my navy disco pants. Chucked on my lookalike litas as they are sooo very comfy and make any outfit look a bit more glamorous.

Have a good friday!

Weekly Wants #1

These are just a few bits I've been craving recently, I've wanted a pair of the UNIF Hellbounds for a while now but with quite a hefty price tag and the fact that they are ALWAYS sold out in my size I've compromised  with myself and bought a pair of copies I found on Ebay for under £30, They aren't quite as nice as the originals but you get what you pay for I suppose and in all fairness they are pretty much identical - click here if your interested in grabbing yourself a pair! 

The suspender leggings are from Black Milk and also come with quite a large price tag - however I reckon this would be quite an easy DIY job so I'm gonna give it a go before I go splashing out. 

How cute is the white leather rucksack! I need this for summer so so so so badly. 

Balenciaga harness platform boots..... well a girl can dream haha. 

I've been looking for a pair of dungarees for months with no luck! The ones pictured are from River Island but sadly completely sold out :(. 

A polo neck crop top just because a girl can never have too many crop tops, they're so easy to just chuck on with disco pants, high waisted jeans, shorts, skirts well everything haha. 

I've been looking for a lipstick in this shade for ages - I'm not bold enough to go for a black lip although I do think it looks cool a dark red is perfect for me. 

I'm craving more jewellery, I havent bought any in ages and I get bored of things quickly, how gorgeous is the spiked ring!

Allow me to introduce myself

This is me - being vain in front of a webcam, haha.  What girl isn't guilty of a little bit of web cam whoring?

I'm Mina, I'm 19 years old. I love fashion and shopping, in fact I think I have a shopping addiction. Three large chests of drawers take up most of the space in my room and all three are overflowing + there may be a couple of clothing mountains on the floor (ooops). I have too many clothes. This blog will be for me to share my daily outfits and clothing hauls when I go shopping. 

I'm not completely new to this whole blogging business I used to share a blog with my best friend Laura ( - My old outfits can be seen at the beginning of the blog if you fancied having a gander but do check it out anyway as Laura has kept it up and I know I enjoy reading it!) I started finding it difficult to find the time to blog as I started a new job working full time. However I feel I've settled into a routine now and to be honest I really missed blogging! So here goes...
