Sunday Summary #64

The sun has finally appeared!!! Sunshine makes the world such a better place. I feel so happy and motivated and less tired when the sun is shining. Not even getting caught in the afternoon rain yesterday could dampen my mood. I made the error of visiting Primark this week and walking out £119 poorer. I got some lovely pieces though but their sizing is just terrible. I'll have to refund or exchange half of them. I also accidentally found myself in New Look giving in to their buy one get one free on jewellery. They have their swimwear section out but nothing very summery clothes wise yet. I am dying to buy summer clothes!!!
Me and my boyfriend have been discussing having our friends over for a barbeque as soon as possible and what to have on our table spread - haha not premature or anything! I've re-started epilating (OUCHIES!) as it can be time consuming and during the winter it was easier and warmer to shave in the shower. I forgot how much it hurts but its amazing for long lasting hair free legs. Plus when I epilated last summer my hair got to a point where it grew back patchy and finer so it got easier to epilate as the hairs being pulled out are smaller and took less time as the hair doesn't grow everywhere anymore. I'd recommend epilating to anyone as the pain gets better and the results are incredible. Lovely bit of personal grooming update for you there.

I am just so excited to see some decent weather and not having to bundle up like Michelin man everyday. Plus I am desperate to dig my leather jackets out. I've also been invited to my first ever wedding in September, words cannot describe my utter excitement at the prospect. I'm already looking for dresses and thinking of hair, make-up and nails for the day.

I watched The Voice last night and really enjoyed it. I've never taken to it, I watched last years on and off so wasn't too bothered for its return. I loved some of the acts on last night and think Jessie J is quite lovely. I loved her green talons last night. My boyfriend had been to London yesterday so he got back late and we caught up with Britain's Got Talent today. Another show I can take or leave but it happened to be on and my boyfriend enjoys it. Again there was some great acts and I adored Jack. Attraction were one of the best I've ever seen.
 Lace top with printed cross necklace £8 - Primark
This is cheating a little as Mum got me this. I usually steer clear of lace as I love it but not sure it looks right on me. I think because this is white its not as hard to pull off as black lace - says the girl who used to wear lace tights, fishnets, mini skirts and lace tops all in black to under 18 clubs.
 Cool bag £5 - Primark 
This pretty print caught my eye and with the sun being out it seemed appropriate to get something for picnics and what not. I'm not sure how good the lining will be for keeping food cool being from Primark but I shouldn't need it to keep cool for long periods of time.
 Nivea Stress Protect £1.50, Revlon lip butter in Sorbet £7.99, Models Own in Purple Pukka £5, Natural Collection blush in Pink Cloud £1.99 - Boots
I used some 3 for 2 offers with my Mum as she wanted some stuff too. I love when Boots do 3 for 2 on almost everything. I love using the Revlon lip butters so couldn't resist this new shade as its a bright pink. The blush is ridiculously cheap but lasts on me all day and gives a lovely flush.

 Contrast jacket £25 - Primark 
I really like these jackets and have been debating getting one for months. I don't think khaki is great on me so when I saw this lighter camel version I snapped it up. I'm not sold on it on me as I think it looks too harsh on me. Plus I never wear my jackets done up and this looks odd undone so I'll most likely return it.
 Pink blouse £12 - Primark
This caught my eye for the pretty detail along the top but on looks very plain so I'm not sure if I like it so much anymore.
 Navy polka dot blouse £12 - Primark 
I love navy and polka dot so I had to buy this but its too big for me so it'll have to go back.
Floral dress £10 - Primark 
I LOVE this dress. It looks so pretty and summery on and I can't wait for an opportunity to wear it. 
White and rose tiered top £12 - Primark 
My Mum found this and it looks so pretty on, I love the watercolour effect that's still quite bright. My boyfriend's Grandad is having a party for his 80th in May so I need something lovely to wear so depending on the dress code it could be this. 
Bright flower top £10 - Primark 
I can't wait to wear this with bleached jeans or shorts in the summer. 
Jewelled jumper £10 - Primark 
The jewels on this got my attention and I'm hoping it looks nice on as I haven't tried it yet. 
 Denim shorts £10, frilly socks £1.50 each and Owl wash mitt £1 - Primark 
I found the cutest pair of green shorts with pink flamingo print but they didn't have my size so I got this pair instead. They look quite baggy so I'm not sure how they'll look on. The Owl mitt was too cute to leave and the socks remind me of being little at primary school! I love them teamed with Mary Janes.
 All £4 - Primark 
I think its outrageous how similar these are to the Topshop ones and at a fraction of the price. I already have 3 or 4 so wasn't going to get anymore but liked the pastels and I love teaming t shirts with skinny jeans and Converse.
 Midi rings £6 (pack of 6) - ASOS 
I've been searching for some of these for ages! I never know how to search for them as different places call them different things. I had been frustrated at everywhere being sold out and finally found ASOS had some in stock. Some are twisted and some are plain and I prefer the twisted ones.
 Monochrome flower long necklace £5.99, Owl pendant £5.99 BOGOF - New Look 
I can't resist a cute Owl necklace that much is clear. Its getting ridiculous how many I have but this one is quite different with his turquoise belly. I thought the monochrome flowers would be great with anything so would be a very versatile piece. I tend to wear long necklaces and pendants in the summer with blouses and tops.
 Peace two strand necklace £6.99, multi cross necklace £5.99 BOGOF - New Look
I ummed and ahhed over both these necklaces. I love both peace signs and crosses but wasn't sure if either of these were very me. Being on offer definitely made the decision easier and I got them.
Anchor earrings and double finger ring £2.99 BOGOF - New Look 
I already have items very similar to these but the low price and BOGOF meant I just had to get them. I love anchors as you'll know if you've read about my tattoos. I only got the earrings as I couldn't find anything else and I don't have a gold pair. 

I'm already excited for Broadchurch and Made In Chelsea tomorrow night so here's hoping my 4'o'clock finish rolls around quickly tomorrow.
Hope you've all had good weeks
