Jumper Days


Jumper - Urban Outfitters / Jeans - Topshop / Jacket - Miss Selfridge / Shoes - Vans @ Schuh

This is the outfit I wore today to go into town with my friend Niamh. I got some real bargains, which I'm super chuffed about. First I got some boring school supplies in the form of a lever arch file and a file block to try and persuade me to revise for mocks that start next week, still haven't revised though ah! Then I got a Christmas Eve bubble bar from Lush which was one of the only half price items left in the shop, a completely different story to Boxing Day! Man does the Christmas stock sell out fast! Next I got my best bargain of the day, a YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick (in shade 25 Taupe Raphael F.Y.I.) for only £12.50 from the YSL counter in House of Fraser! Crazy right?? I'm over the moon with it and it's such a perfect shade! Lastly, I went to Urban Outfitters and got a black mini cross body bag for only a fiver and some sequinned scrunchies for only £4. I'm super happy with all my purchases and chose to celebrate with a 1/4 plain chicken with peri chips and grilled halloumi at Nando's, mmm!

I got this jumper on Boxing Day for only £20 which I think is a bargain as it was over £40 to start off with. Also I tend to always grab jumpers to throw on with jeans on a regular basis as a simple outfit that looks like you put a bit more effort into it than you actually did. Then I paired it with my staple black Jamie jeans from Topshop, black biker jacket and my vans! I definitely need to get some Nike Air Max or something to mix things up a bit!

Happy Boxing Day!

Top - Motel Rocks / Jeans - Topshop / Socks - Topshop / Boots  - Topshop @ Next2Nowt

Happy Boxing Day everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas yesterday and got spoiled rotten! And to all those who don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great day too! 

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I think one of the best parts about Christmas is the Boxing Day sales. I went crazy in Lush and ended up spending over £40 on bath bombs, bubble bars and Snow Fairy shower gel! Some people may think that excessive but everything I got will definitely last me the year until next Boxing Day, and I won't buy anything else from there in-between now and then. If you haven't been to Lush yet, I definitely recommend you check out the sale because at 50% off you can't lose! 

Another sale I visited was the Urban Outfitters sale where I got a jumper, pencil case, NYX palette and a nail polish for £32! I only checked out a small section of the store so there were probably more deals to be had, but I'd also definitely recommend visiting UO if you have a chance!

Ok, back to the outfit! I actually took these pictures on the 23rd but my laptop wouldn't read my SD card. Then I got a Macbook Pro for Christmas (big thank you to mum and dad) and now I could finally blog them! I feel like a professional blogger with a Macbook, especially with iPhoto and iMovie apps. I ordered the Motel Rocks top along with another top the other day and used the credit I'd accumulated from my discount code (enter OLIVIALIKESFASHION at the checkout for 20% off FYI) and someone else's 20% off code. A definite bargain and is a definite nod to the tartan trend. I also wore some frilly Topshop socks to dress up my ankle boots.

Work Work Work


Top - Topshop / Jeans - Topshop / Necklace - River Island / Shoes - Rock & Republic @ Kohl's

I've returned a working woman! Since blogging last I've got a job at Outfit which is an Arcadia Group shop selling Topshop, Topman, Dorothy Perkins, Burton, Miss Selfridge, Wallis, Warehouse and Fuse clothes all under one roof. Pretty amazing right? The dress code is all black so here you have a typical work outfit of mine. I got the top and jeans last weekend along with some other items using a 30% off staff friends and family discount so I was loving life! Hopefully if I get kept on after Christmas, I'll get a staff discount card and end up spending all my wages in Topshop! I also must point out these beautiful shoes my dad bought for me in Kohls while he was in Florida a few months ago! I love the Rock & Republic brand so I obviously love these shoes too!

You may notice a cheeky remote in my hand, YES I FINALLY GOT A WIRELESS REMOTE AND TRIPOD! So be prepared for more regular outfit posts yayayayayay!

P.S. I'm having some domain renewal problems right now, any ideas how to fix it??????
