Why I am very hard to shop with…

I have to admit, I love meeting up with friends for a coffee, to go to a nice restaurant or for a night out but when it comes to shopping I definitely prefer to go alone. This is because when I am shopping I almost go into hunter mode. Like a hunter, hunting for its prey I am a shopaholic hunting for the best items in the shop. For that reason I tend to wander around the shop – I may do a quick scan and then analyse each section specifically or I might dive straight for the make-up section. Generally, I am anything but systematic about how I shop and therefore I find it hard to shop with other people. There. Confession Done.

Anyway I was coincidentally shopping with my friend the other day (not my idea, i was late so I decided not to quarrel) and we were in H&M. Over the years I have generally been put off  H&M i thought the quality was alright but the style was boring and slightly outdated. However when I visited this H&M store a few days ago most of the stuff seemed to be quite good. I spotted a few smart long dresses and this weird sea green and yellow collection that I was seemingly fixated on. However, like most people who going shopping post-Christmas/New Years my friend was all about the Sales. Sidenote -> I have noticed that recently I can’t really be asked for the Sale section because it is always:

1) messy

2) cramped

3) hard to find your size and hard to restrain yourself from buying stuff just because its cheap

3) generally unpleasant

This is also why I don’t particularly like shopping in TK Maxx. So I kind of gave up trying to shop for myself that day and casually followed her around as we chatted away.

ANKARA

This was my first time experimenting with Ankara. This does not refer to the capital of Turkey but instead Ankara is a specific type of material, particularly used in Africa. It was fun but I didn’t have many tools (must get my sewing machine working).

Much better than watching paint dry!

Ever thought paint dripping down your legs wasn’t cool? Well think again. This new craze is growing at a crazy speed. I particularly like the ‘Bad girl’ vibe they give and even celebrities such as Hayley Williams from Paramore (VIDEO FOR ‘STILL INTO YOU’) can be seen sporting the latest trend.

Summer Outfit Ideas

Here in England today has been the first real day of what ordinary people would call ‘summer weather’. In celebration I wore sunglasses and finally let go of my black cardigan. Check out this video from ‘ItsMyRayeRaye’ on YouTube giving us some handy outfit ideas if the rain truly does decide to stay away.

Michelle Obama

Looking beautiful as usual, Michelle Obama decides to wear a Thom Browne coat and dress for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.

However she wasn’t the only woman looking stunning as her two daughters Malia and Sasha looked on point too. Check out the perfect pictures below.

Kristen Stewart – Double Wammy

As Kristen Stewart jets around the world to promote the last Twilight movie – sad 😥 she is certainly doing it fashionably. See-through dresses and bold seductive colours. I love her, what a great vampire she has become.

Wow. Just wow!
