Shopping: In store or Online?

Hey lovelies,
 
Shopping is one of my favourite past times. These days, I do it less frequently than I used to do when I was slightly younger or when I was a student. Priorities over the years have changed and I spend less time spending my hard earned pennies on designer handbags and expensive jewellery like I once did.
 
These days, I opt for using the internet for online shopping rather than visiting stores. Usually 9 times out of 10 these days I purchase things online over buying in store. I think its the ease of browsing online 24 hours a day. Discount codes are another thing that sway me more about buying online. Long gone are the days that I was a student and could crack my student card out on the high-street for 10% discount, these days I need to scour voucher code websites for online discounts for my favourite stores with new look and asos frequently having money off codes.
 
Click and collect is another reason I shop online. Id much rather order from the comfort of my own home knowing full well that I can collect in store at a time that is convenient for me, and for free. I do know that some people love going into stores, trying clothes on and having a good feel of them before I buy but I would happily order in bulk, usually with discount and free delivery, try them on at home and return them or post them back if need be. 
 
The internet has definitely changed the way I shop, especially online. I have even just purchased a gorgeous stripey top from Topshop with 10% discount and free delivery, something I wouldn't have got in store so it paid to purchase online.
How do you prefer to shop? Online or in store?

George Wishlist

Hello lovelies,
 
For a supermarket clothing range, George is one of my favourites. I usually buy my work clothes from George, especially from the G21 range which is a little more younger and fashionable in my opinion. Work outfits for me usually consist of black skinny jeans, a blouse and jumper/ cardigan or a shift dress and tights so the clothes I chose reflect that.
Love this heart knit jumper so much that I think I might have to purchase it myself for work. I have a heart print dress which is my current favourite so feel like I need to add more prints like this into my wardrobe.
I love this classic black shift dress with gold zip detailing at the back. I think it would be perfect to dress up or down and to wear either to work or play. I would pair with tights and boots for work and team with a leather jacket.
Black skinny jeans are a staple item in my wardrobe, these look great and are only £14. I would cuff the hem and have them turned up and paired with either boots or flats.  
Floral blouses that are quite sheer are one of my faves and one of the things I wear most often, especially paired with black skinny jeans. This subtle floral on black is great for the cold end of winter months whilst moving into summer.
And because no wishlist would be complete without a pyjama/Disney addition, I just had to include these adorable Minnie mouse pyjama bottoms. Will have to purchase these especially for my Paris trip in October (and maybe even the matching top!).
 
Whats your thoughts on George clothing? Anything on your wishlist?

Glo & Ray Cosmetics Love For Lips Set

Happy Friday ladies!
My favourite make up product is definitely lipstick. After years of hoarding and buying copious amounts of make up I have become a slightly more sensible nearly 25 year old and know what suits me and stick to firm favourites. With this been said, lipstick is the one thing that changes the most and takes me from day to night as my base make up pretty much stays the same all the time. When I want to look slightly different to normal I up the lipstick states and have been veering towards bright oranges and pinks.
 
I received the Glo&Ray Cosmetics Love for Lips* gift set recently which contains three stunning lipsticks, Passion (fuchsia pink), Gerbera (Orange) and Forever (Deep red).
All three of the lipsticks feel exactly the same on the lips. They glide on with ease, the fuchsia and red are extremely pigmented with one swipe where as the orange needed a bit more building up to get an intense colour and is slightly lighter than it shows in the bullet. They feel glossy and are extremely long lasting, leaving a stain on the lips with longer wear.
 
I very rarely wear red lipstick, I think it is absolutely stunning however I'm just not sure of how much it suits me and my colouring and I never know what other make up to pair with it, especially blush. I know for sure that I am going to get a extremely lot of wear from both the pink and orange lipstick in this set. I cant explain how amazing they feel on the lips. I'm in love!
This set retails for £42 which works out at £14 each. I think it would make a wonderful gift, I know for one that I would be extremely happy if I received this set. Lipsticks are also available individually for £12 however the red is only available in this set.
 
You can buy the set on the Glo&Ray Website Here.
 
Is this a brand you have heard of or used before?

Whitby

Happy Sunday sweetpeas!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!
 
This is the third year in a row that me and Carla have had a little weekend away in Whitby. This weekend was a bit of a impromptu visit (as was the first one thinking about it) as we were invited by my Mum and partner. Sometimes I love a last minute, spontaneous trip especially to one of my favourite places to visit in the UK.
 
I have well and truly fallen in love with Whitby. I must admit the breath-taking views and quant shops along with the amazing company have got me through some extremely hard times in life and the memories will stay with me forever.
 
Today we went back to one of my favourite eating places in Whitby, Jumpin Jacks diner which is your typical American diner. I opted for a banana milkshake and all day breakfast which was pretty amazing.

I've had a wonderful couple of days of sightseeing, shopping, taking lots of photos, arcades, drinks and even playing on the beach. Lots of memories have again been made.
 
Even though the weather has been truly awful recently we were pretty lucky and it only really rained on Saturday night. The days were cold and quite windy but the sun was shining. Perfect!

Overall, such a wonderful weekend spent with my best friend and mummy. How have you spent your weekend?
