New Shoes!

Some time earlier this week, I decided that I needed a near pair of shoes in my life, so I hit all the online shoe shops, looking for a pair of ankle boots with good grips, so I would be able to walk to school in the snow and ice. I went on the website from a store called Schuh and found these...
It's fair to say that they are exactly what I was looking for. When I ordered them, Schuh sent me plenty of emails telling me about the delivery and all that, when I normally order something online I will get about three emails from the company, but I got 6 from Schuh.

The shoes cost £42 with free delivery, which is a bit expensive, but I was desperate for some boots and these were the only pair that ticked all the boxes. I got black (obviously) but there are two other colours to pick from. They're suede on the outside and are fleece inside. The only downside to them is that they make my feet look massive.

Overall, they're great and really comfortable and I just love them.

Product Review: Hairspray

This Christmas, my brother bought me a Tresemme set, which came with a small bottle of shampoo and conditioner, a hairbrush and a small bottle of hairspray.

I haven't used the shampoo or conditioner yet, nor have I used the brush, but I have used the hairspray! To be honest... it's not great. It was alright, but it wasn't brilliant. On the bottle it says 24 hour control and I only got a good 2-3 hours from it. A plus side is though that it doesn't make your hair look greasy or make your hair go like cardboard, which my other hairspray does.

Overall, I don't know if I like the product enough to recommend. I for one, won't be rushing out to get a bigger bottle.

Today, was weekly meal out with my Dad, it's time where we spend just an hour or two together, since I don't see him a lot anymore. We went to a Fayre & Square pub and it was really nice. There was hardly anyone else in the pub, so that was good, as it was quiet and didn't sound like a school canteen. My Dad complained that the prices were too high, but there was a lot of offers on and the portions of the food were quite big. Overall it was a nice meal and I would happily return.

Spending Pennies

I picked up these goodies today...

(Sorry for the awful picture and all of the awful pictures to come)
First of all, I bought a cream cable knit jumper from Primark.The item costs £14, which isn't to bad compared to other jumpers that are similar, but cost quite a lot more than that. I changed into the jumper later on in the day and it fits perfectly and doesn't irritate the skin (which I find some jumpers do).

The skirt is a khaki colour and only cost £8.00 from Primark. The skirt is quite loose and almost like a skater skirt. It comes with a black belt, which doesn't really affect the skirt, it just adds a bit of a darker colour to it. The waist is elasticated, which is always a benefit for me when I'm buying skirts.

I wore the skirt and jumper together with the jumper tucked into the skirt and they look good together. I wore the outfit with a pair of black tights and a pair of black ankle boots.

The bag is actually a birthday present for one of my friends, it's her birthday on the 10th of January and the bag just seemed like something that she'd like. The bag cost £6 and it's a simple black colour with a cream bit just above the buckle. I'm not much for it personally, but I think she'll like it. The bag is also from Primark.

Last, but not least; I bought two Models Own nail varnishes from Boots. I bought Coral reef and Pastel Pink, as there was an offer for 'buy two for £8. I haven't had chance to wear wither of them yet, as I currently have my nails painted with the colour; Balearic Cool from the Head Kandi range (also from Models Own) and I'm impressed with the colour, it's lasted longer than I expected it to. and it's just an overall nice colour. I hope these two are as good as the Balearic Cool.
