Today I bought #28

 t-shirt: boy london @ selfridges
skirt: forever 21
laser-cut vest: miss selfridge
bikini: topshop
coated running shorts: sara
denim shorts: topshop
stippling brush: real techniques @ boots
hair conditioner: john freida @ boots
lipstick: mac salute! limited edition

These are the bits and bobs which I picked up at the Bullring yesterday, I've been really stressed with work at the moment...can you tell?! My favourite purchase has to be the Boy London t-shirt, I love big baggy t-shirts that I can wear with my AA red or black leggings. I tried it on and it's even long enough to wear as a dress, don't worry I won't! I also love the laser-cut vest which is really hard to photograph but the back features a laser-cut flower design which will be nice on the beach during the Summer. I ordered this bikini online and it finally arrived today, I have to advise anyone thinking of buying this that it comes up very small. I'm a size 10 and had to get a size 12 and even that is quite 'snug' and I'm pretty small chested. 

I've been after these grey coated running shorts for a few weeks but they never had them in my size so finally snatched them up. I love the combination of the grey PU fabric and the rose gold detailing, this will go perfectly with my matching messenger bag and a plain white tee. I also picked up these bright blue denim shorts, I love the fluorescent tone within the denim and the high-waisted fit. Everyone raves about this stippling brush along with the John Freida full repair mask so I thought I'd give them a go. I used the conditioning mask last night and my hair did feel softer afterwards but I need to use it more. Lastly, I bought this limited edition Salute! amplified lipstick which is part of the new Mac Hey, Sailor! collection. It has a really thick and creamy texture so the nude tone shows up on the lips against my usual foundation and stays on really well. I want to stock up on these before they discontinue like my Sweet Sunrise one did, still so gutted!
