My Last Five Buys

I got this idea from Georgie at Bean's Beauty Blog - definitely go and check her out, she has a great blog with lovely wishlists, reviews, blogging tips etc.

So here are the last 5 things I purchased. Fashion and beauty related that is, or this post would just be a mixture of apples, metro tickets and a set of kitchen scales.

1. Black H&M Raffia Clutch
I went to a boat party recently for my boyfriend's birthday and I needed a black clutch to go with my outfit. This H&M one was perfect for the occasion, I like the beach-y, rustic-ness of the the raffia, and it's a nice size.

2. Miss Selfridge Kimono 
I bought this to also wear at said boat party. This was in the sale so was quite the bargin. I feel like the Miss Selfridge here is little hidden gem - they always seem to have a sale on and the shop is in the Marina Mall which is so much smaller and less busy than Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates. It's my favourite one fo' sho'.

3. Freedom at Topshop Double Pearl Earrings 
I've been a bit obsessed with double pearl earrings ever since they were on the catwalk at Dior. I was looking out for these Topshop ones for ages, and when they got them in I snapped them up. To be honest I'm a bit disappointed, as I thought they would make a bigger impact. Maybe I just need some with a bigger pearl at the back. The search continues.

4. Sisley Lip Gloss
Technically I didn't buy this but was given it as a birthday gift from a lovely girl at work. However I'm putting it in cos it's new and I love it. I'm totally not a lip gloss kinda girl normally, but this has great colour pay-off on it's own or layered over lipstick, and it doesn't feel sticky. Plus it's a lovely berry colour. Win. 

5. Forever 21 Sunglasses
My beloved Topshop sunglasses broke so I had to get some new ones. I like that these are kind of cat-eye as I think the shape suits my round face.

What have you been buying lately?
