As it seems, March proved to be the month of shopping. I haven’t bought a LOT, but considering I don’t buy much on a regular basis, this seemed like the biggest shopping spree of my life. I mean I’m in the process of job change – goin’ from scruffy-uniform-every-day to a miss-corporate-24/7, so some wardrobe update is in order. After almost 2 years of wearing the same Tee every day (obviously, I had 7 pieces of the same T-shirts, I’m not that skanky!), I own 1 pencil skirt, 1 smart shirt (2 if you count the one with puppy print) and a pair of black bobbly trousers. Wohoo! Have a nose into what I picked up over the past month or so.
⇢ Asos tees: Plain grey T-shirts, one with long sleeve, one with short sleeve. They’re made out of this nice stretchy material and are both oversized, which makes them perfect for under the blazer – the ultimate casual corporate chic.
⇢ T-shirt from Justin: As you know, Justin went to South Africa for a few weeks. And because I’m such a lucky lady he brought back loads of presents for me – wheheee! One of them being this uber cool graphic T-shirt with a lion on it.
⇢ H&M sunglasses: I know, I know, I’ve got a pair of Rayban Aviators but I really wanted a pair of the multicoloured ones, too. They make me look like an angry fly, but who cares!
⇢ H&M bra: This is not really a bra. It’s a bikini top. But because of the awesome shape and material, it makes for a really nice bra/top under tank tops and see through blouses.
⇢ Asda kimono: This amazing kimono was a part of my Asda SS14 picks here. It’s such a great quality & lovely material for the price, and I’ve wanted one for ages – works for both casual and smart outfits.
⇢ Zara handbag: Yup, this is the mini city handbag from Zara that everyone and their dog had bought about a year ago. But man, it’s the definition of a corporate handbag!
⇢ Revlon 3 for 2: I also found a Boots that stocks sufficient amount of Revlon products to pick 3 for 2. I picked one of the scented nail polishes and two lip crayons. The dark berry one is so lush!
⇢ Violets: Violets remind me of home, we always eat them the most during Easter, so seeing these in TKMaxx was a no brainer.
⇢ Rodial skin tint: This little bad boy was discounted from some £35 to £7. Oh c’mon, how could I leave it there, especially when it was my shade?! I’ve only used it a few times so far but have to say that it’s got some serious potential! Look out for more Rodial products in TKMaxx, they have loads on offer at the moment!
⇢ more SA presents: Apart from the awesome graphic tee, I also got some more presents – a bee wax lip balm, a cute jelly candle & an Africa-shaped pendant – awwwh!
