Some New Things

I was a bit bold today. After an annoying morning at work, I decided I needed a bit of impromtu retail therapy. I was on the hunt for some cute shoes (in place of the ones I want but can't afford) and I found these in River Island for only €33.50!

You can't really tell what colour they are from the picture, but in my opinion they are ivory canvas and the darker colour is olivey/brown. If that makes sense! They're so comfortable and they come in a few other colours including nude, so I might have to get those on payday. They also had a gorgeous pair of grey loafers that I really want! I bought a little pair of nautical style studs too (if you know me, you'll know I have a slight obsession with earrings).

I got this bag in work because I was looking for a small cross body tan colour bag that is still big enough to fit keys, wallet, phone and camera. So this was perfect, and at €12.25 you can't really go wrong. I was also getting annoyed with the perfume I was wearing and I'm not going order the ones I really want from ebay until I get paid (Estée Lauder Pleasures Exotic or Nina Ricci Nina) so I bought an old classic of mine DKNY Woman. I think it's the first perfume I really fell in love with. Pure Bloom by Sarah Jessica Parker is another favourite but I'm taking a break from that for a while. I like to alternate scents so I never get tired of one. It seems to be working, except for the one I have now.

I ordered these fake eyelashes from ebay about 2 weeks ago and they arrived yesterday. They were just $1.69 including postage. I don't normally wear fake eyelashes, only occasionally, but I had a little bit leftover on a 3V card (disposable credit card) and I said I'd try them out since they were such a good price. Today I also ordered a couple of things from ebay and amazon. A lovely pair of handmade daisy earrings and a little pink case for my pink camera. It will have to suffice until I save up for a better camera, the one I have is very cute though and takes beautiful photographs even if I do say so myself!

I'll post pictures of me wearing the shoes and earrings when I get to wear them! I should really go and make dinner now. I hope you are all having a great week so far. Only 3 sleeps 'til the weekend! Oh! the chili cook-off Simpsons is on! "Well chief, don't quit your day job, whatever that is". Classic...
