Haul Post #3 I got lost in Primark

Hello everyone! 🙂 On this surprisingly bright & sunny day here in Ireland my Mom and I decided to go to town for what was supposed to be a few things……which was working out quite okay for us…until we reached Penneys (Primark in the UK). I’m sure many of you guys can understand the terror that my wallet faced next! Here’s some pictures that will do the explaining 😀

The tracksuit bottoms were on sale at €5 down from €12 which I was quite happy with, even if they are just for wearing around the house & I got simple, long sleeved crop tops (the blue & khaki green ones above) which would be perfect with some of my skirts or some high waisted jeans. At €5 each they are a perfect dupe for a different colour top rather similar that I bought in New Look for nearly €20!

*Sigh* I am always a sucker for Harry Potter clothing….damn you Penneys! Today was no different when I spotted this t-shirt (look below ^.^).

In the homeware section I picked up this little set of copper wire fairy lights for €3 and this candle for €4 which can be used as a mug once it’s all gone.

I also picked up a few little bits in Dealz & a euro store, my favourites being this colouring book and the BB-8 mug, because who doesn’t love BB-8!

Overall I have to say that my favourite buy today was these 2 books I picked up in a charity shop in Wexford. I love Cecelia Ahern and have a few of her books already so when I spotted these through the window I just had to go in and grab them and turns out they were only €1 each!!

So I guess you can say we picked up a little more than just a few things today…oops! Ah sure, it happens to the best of us! Thank you for reading 🙂

Trying Something New

To my wonderful followers,

Lately I haven’t been feeling the best which is why my posts have been less frequent. I’ve been extremely tired and sluggish, have had back pains and weird itchy hive-type things covering my legs. I thought it was time for a detox, or a”teatox”, something I had honestly never tried before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had however heard that they were really good for giving energy and removing that bloated feeling, as well as getting rid of sugar cravings (that I wanted to see!). As a follower of fellow Irish blogger FacesByGrace on snapchat, I knew the risks associated a lot of those skinny teas out there, mostly those containing Senna leaves and other laxatives as it stops the absorption of the contraceptive pill – a big no no for many of us women. Following Grace’s recommendations I decided to try Miss Fit Skinny Tea, an Irish company that prides itself in the results it delivers but also in the fact that it contains no laxatives, making it possibly the safest option on the market regarding skinny detox teas. The company’s founder and creator Ruth was quite a pleasure to do business with. She was very sweet and helpful when I messaged her on Facebook to talk about her tea and you can tell that she really cares about her customers and the quality of the product they receive.

So anyway I decided I would start with the 14 day package which was 24.99 and also bought the adorable little strawberry tea infuser which was 5. Postage was fast which is always a plus to buying things online. I ordered it on a Sunday and it arrived the Thursday to my delight.

Here’s what I received in an adorable pink envelope with white polka dots ^.^

I’ve really only started drinking the tea today so I can’t give much of an opinion on if I feel different or anything yet but it does have a nice flavour. Kinda reminds me of green tea which I love! Ruth recommends drinking 3-4 cups a day but I have definitely drank at least 5 so far…and may have another one before I finish typing this. I really hope it does make me feel better soon. Onwards and upwards as they say!

All my love,
