Topshop Doubles

I love those days when you walk in to Primark and find amazing lookalikes of clothes that are currently being stocked elsewhere on the high street, but for half the price. Well, this happened last Saturday when I took a trip to the big Primark in Tottenham Court road and I picked up these two amazing Topshop dupes.  I’ve had my eye on the Topshop gingham jeans for a while now and when I saw Primark did their own version for just £13, I was amazed to find they still had any left in a size 8.  Result!  I also got these sliders for £8, which were a bit of a bargain.  I already own the white Topshop ones (as featured here) which I paid £22 for, so when I saw them in black I picked up a pair straight away. Admittedly they do feel quite cheap and light in comparison to the white pair, but they look just as good on.  For £8 I'm most definitely not complaning.

Life lately

Long time no blog! As you may have noticed I’ve been a little absent from the blogging world lately, so I thought I would give you a quick update on what I’ve been up to in the last couple of months.  The main reason I haven’t blogged much recently is due to starting a new job. At the end of March I started a new job and from then until now, it’s been quite overwhelming and pretty tiring to be honest! I’ve gone from a very small company of 10 people to a big agency of around 70 dealing with national accounts and it’s a big change for me personally, but one that I'm really excited about.  During this time the whole company has also relocated to central Brighton, so with that thrown in the mix it’s been a busy couple of months.

I did consider actually given up my blog all together because I wasn’t sure if I would have the time to commit what I wanted to it anymore, and after getting home from work the last thing I usually want to do is spend my evenings (and weekends) in front of another computer thinking about what to write.  Then I realised that a blog is supposed to be a hobby and something that it done in my spare time for my own enjoyment and I shouldn’t feel guilty if I don’t post for a month, or even longer. So, after a little break from blogging and social media, I’m going to try and get back in the swing of things starting with a few holiday related posts and a Bootea Teatox review in the next couple of weeks. 

Apart from work, in the last couple of weeks I’ve also been preparing for my holiday to Turkey, which I'm jetting off to on Tuesday #excited. I’m going with my boyfriend, my best friend and her boyfriend and I'm looking forward to some much needed relaxation and fun in the sun. Not to mention getting a tan.  I’m going to be doing a holiday style diary when I return so keep your eyes peeled for some summery outfits at the end of May.  It’s also my birthday at the end of the month and I’m struggling to decide what to ask my boyfriend and parents for, which is extremely rare for me. I’m thinking maybe a Micheal Kors gold ring, or a pair of Celine Shadow sunglasses.... Oh decisions, decisions.

Apart from the above, here a few iPhone pics to show you what I've been up to this last month.
