Hello m'loves, a little late but I hope you had a nice Easter if you celebrate the occasion, our family don't do much to be honest, just an excuse to overload ourselves with chocolate. I did get some exciting new things over the past 2 weeks, I have included a few things which I have kindly been gifted with so I hope you don't mind that. I absolutely love the pink top, Miss Selfridge has some amazing pieces but they're all so pricey so I was super happy to find this in the sale. It's much more neon that what is showing up and I love the print as well as the high neckline. The shirt was an Easter present from my lovely mam as she knew that I had been eyeing it up for a while, it's also not showing up as bright as it is but it's so pretty! This dress definitely looks much better on and hopefully I can show you sometime. I really love the high-low hemline trend and this floaty dress shows it off really well, it has an interesting print but I must say, it still has a very feminine feel to it. I have wanted a denim shirt for a while but in all honesty I do find denim rather uncomfortable and restricting so when I spotted these very light, soft denim look versions I was a happy chappy. I love them to throw on over whatever when the weather is a bit warmer. I'm sure you all recognise these babies, the vectras, I own the black and silver ones and they may as well be the only shoes I own because I wear them so much! They are so comfortable but unfortunately my feet have a bit of a problem with shoes and I will manage to wear them down within such a short space of time. My black ones are currently suffering and I really don't want to think about the day that I have to throw them away. This is where my logic comes in, I bought the nude colour as they are just as gorgeous as the black but a lot more girly and spring/summer appropriate so hopefully I will reach for these more often meaning I'm not getting as much wear out of my black ones so they will last longer. Plan.
I'm not too sure how the hair dye is going to look on my hair as I have went from a rather bright permanent red to a semi-permanent dark brown which came out jet black leaving me with black hair that still had red in it and some said it looked purple in the sun, I really loved it but like many others because summer is on the way I wanted something lighter and more soft looking. When I read this post stating that the exact colour recently used on Cheryl Cole was the L'oreal casting creme gloss in iced mocha I knew it was what I wanted so I grabbed two of these, lets hope my hair looks as good as hers! Because it was 3 for 2 I chose the Aussie 3 minute miracle colour deep treatment as my freebie, I knew that Jetley Mess had recommended me an Aussie product but could not remember for the life of me what it was exactly and blogger was failing on me, refusing to load on my phone so I just went with anything, I have used the little sachets of the 3 minute miracle product before and remember liking them so we shall see how this goes. As for the cherry Carmex, my mam picked me this up because my other one (the original) had vanished off the face of the earth and I was making a little bit of a deal of it because I am slightly OCD and if I loose things or if something gets thrown and is irretrievable before it is empty/unusable it will make me so unsettled! I'm a freak I know. I wasn't a massive fan of the original but I have higher hopes for this one, although I know some love the original I'm sure the fact that it has salicylic acid in it has something to do with the poor performance but this one doesn't, yay. Oh and I just fancied showing you my Easter treats, yum! I just couldn't resist sharing my ring with you. An amazing gift from Lee, it's so beautiful and I am so grateful! The camera definitely doesn't show the true beauty of this ring and no, it is not an engagement ring!
I have learnt 2 things whilst writing this haul, one; my camera really isn't too good and two; everything really does look better 'in real life'. If you are on Easter break I hope you've had a good one and are looking forward to returning to school, haha as if anyone is. I haven't done anything exciting but it's been quite chilled, now 4 days before I return to sixth form I am stressing about the amount of work and revision that I have not bothered to do. Such a bad student, I shall get it done though. Hopefully. Oh and I changed the name of my blog, I wasn't happy with 'Cinderella's castle' at all, lets face it, it is a little cheesy. 'Dreamer' popped into my head and you know when you think, that's it! I hope you enjoyed this post, what have you been buying recently?
Thanks for reading. Love,
