New Look Curves Sale Clothing Haul - May 2017.

Hello lovelies! A couple of weeks back whilst browsing on New Look's website I saw that they were having a little bit of a sale and I may have placed a little order to give myself a little cheering up treat. I hardly ever buy myself more than one or two things if I order, but I finally got the chance to use the gift card I got for Christmas, so it actually was a treat if you think about it! I usually only buy things from websites when they have sales on because I'm a bargain hunter....less money, more things, duh!! Anyway, here are the bits that I picked up in my cheering up haul:


First off is this beautiful 'Curves Bright Blue Lace Longline Bra'. I'd seen this on the website for a while and the bralette trend was kicking in but I didn't want to pay the original price, which I believe was around the £12.99 mark. It's not on the website anymore as I got this in the sale, but all of their bralettes are around that price. This little beauty cost me all of £5, which is a bargain! I think the detail and the colour are really pretty. The fit is okay on me, maybe I could've done with sizing up one, but it looks really nice on and for the price I can't really complain!


Next is this 'Curves Red Lace Bralette'. I'd also been eyeing this up on New Look's site but again I was put off by the price. So when I saw it on sale for just £7 I had to snap it up. The colour is really beautiful and vibrant. The black band is a really nice contrast against the brightness of the red and it looks SO nice on. Not that anyone other than my BF will see that, but I'm really happy with this one. It fits perfectly and makes me feel quite....sexy. Oooh la la!


Next up is this 'Curves Blue Stripe Coffee Embroidered Pajama Set'. With the warmer weather looking like it's here to stay I was on the look out for some more Summer friendly nightwear and these just happened to be in the sale for just £7 (originally £14.99, I think, don't take my word for it). Even though I am not a coffee drinker, I couldn't pass this set up because they're so darn cute! The top is a crop top style with the cutest little cupcake and cup on it with the quote 'don't stand between a girl and her coffee'. It comes with a basic drawstring cotton short, but together they look fab and keep me cool on a night. Definitely my best buy from this haul ♥


Lastly I decided to try out another product from New Look's beauty range and I picked up one of their 'Super Matte Liquid Lipstick in Stone'. This is a dark, almost grey lip colour with a brown/nude undertone to it. It dries lovely on the lips and lasts for aaaages. The colour is quite different to ones I usually go for it but it's quickly becoming my fave! I'll definitely be trying some more shades in this range. I picked this beauty up for £3.


I've been loving New Look's clothes lately and I will definitely be keeping an eye on the website for any upcoming sales. The Curve range is so on point right now, I'm looking forward to picking myself up some more Summer pieces!

Have you got any bargains lately?

What I Watched: May 2017 ♥

Hello lovelies! June 1st, where the heck as this year gone?? I'm sure I say that every time I write one of these posts, but I swear I blinked and we ended up half way through the year. It's insane! 
★ This month's 'What I Watched' isn't actually as dismal as I thought it would be. I managed to fit in a good mish mash of seven movies. SEVEN. That's like a record for me lately. So without further ado, here's what I watched in May 2017....


❋ CHAPPIE.
In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

Alex, his dad, his brother and I all ended up watching this random movie at the beginning of the month. I went into it not knowing what it was about or who was in it. When it started I thought that I would hate it as I'm not the biggest robot fan (Transformers not included) but at the end I was so glad we ended up watching it because it is a really good movie. 5/10 ★

❋ NAKED GUN SERIES.
This series follows to life of an incompetent police detective called Frank Drebin as he goes about his job foiling the work of criminals with a tongue in cheek style. Think Johnny English meets Police Academy.

Alex introduced me to this series a few years ago and we recently discovered the television series from which these movies were spawned, Police Squad! and so we spent a few nights watching out way through the three movies. This kinda humour isn't something that I tend to enjoy, but there's some jokes in there that will make even the most humourless person chuckle. 7/10 ★

❋ GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. VOL 2.
The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.

I'm not the biggest Marvel fan, having only seen Thor, but I fell in love with the first movie when I saw it and knew that I had to see the second installment. I took Alex to see this at the cinema for his birthday and we both loved it. It was just as action packed as the first and baby Groot is too damn cute to ignore. 9/10 ★

❋ HARRY POTTER & THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE.
WE ALL KNOW WHAT HARRY POTTER IS. IF YOU DON'T, WE CAN'T BE FRIENDS.

I've loved Harry Potter since I was a kid and I will forever hold a place for it in my heart. These movies kept my family and I entertained for years and no matter what I'll always come back to Hogwarts. No matter what age I get to. 9/10 ★

❋ BEAUTY & THE BEAST.
An adaptation of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.

I wasn't too fussed about seeing this as I haven't really ever gotten into old Disney movies, so I wasn't even sure what it was about *don't hate me* but it has Emma in it, so I decided to go see it purely for that and I'm glad that I did. Emma's voice is kinda pretty and the story was easy enough to follow. I wouldn't say it was my cup of tea, but it's worth the watch. EMMA WILL ALWAYS BE HERMIONE TO ME....6/10 ★

What have you been watching this month?
Any recommendations?

My 10 Year Hair Evolution: 2007 - 2017.

Hello lovelies! Today I've got a post that I've thought about doing for a while now, but always put off doing it as I knew that there'd be SO many different pictures to go through....and I'm just lazy and there's a LOT of my face in this post, ha!. BUT, I finally set time aside and went through my entire photo library on my computer and came up with this lovely bunch. My hair throughout the past nine years. I know, it's an odd one, but I'm always changing the colour/cut of my hair a lot and so I thought it would be a cool thing to look back on. So here we go...

2007.
