Nottingham

A couple of Wednesdays ago Ellie and I returned to Nottingham for a little bit of retail therapy. You can read my post on a couple of things I bought on our last trip to Nottingham HERE. This trip had been talked about for weeks and we had both saved up a fair amount of money (this is considering that myself and Ellie love to spend money AND I had been to London the Monday before and only bought one top which I ended up taking back). On the train we expressed our excitement for Nottingham and it was clear that we both had the same goal, as much as we love make-up, we needed CLOTHES! I'm not going to lie to you though, we may have wandered into the beauty section in Debenhams for an hour or so, and I may have bought this beauty of a lipstick from Superdrug:
But, to be fair, I had been wanting it for ages and they didn't have it in my local Superdrug and it is a fantastic lipstick; long-lasting and you don't have to keep on going over it to make it actually apply onto your lips! Come on, look how beautiful it is! Anyways, after having been into countless shops with nothing that interested us both, myself and Ellie found ourselves wandering around the freezing street of Nottingham with no shopping spirit :( We thought all hope was lost, but then we strolled in to Topshop, and bam! I returned my top from London, and picked up some replacement beauties, and Ellie found a lovely top too! We really did get a great feeling when we both picked up a couple of items, I ended up buying both items I picked up, however Ellie only opted for one of them. It gave me such a great feeling when I tried them on in the changing rooms and they fit perfectly and looked rather flattering :) Aah, I can remember it now :) Here are my buys from Topshop!
The top was £32 and the dress was £26. I don't think they were too expensive, quite reasonable prices to be honest :) I love the detailing on the collor of the top, for me, it means that I can wear the top on a normal day, but it can also be dressed up for going out in the evening or to somewhere that is worth getting dressed up for.
As for the back, for some reason I love it when tops/dresses have this sort of button on the back. What do you think?
I am very pleased that I found the dress. I needed a couple that I could wear with some knitted tights and boots for the winter, so this is great for starting off my collection. I will definitely be buying some more winter dresses soon, so if you know of anywhere I can get some lovely ones, please let me know! Finally, I needed a notebook, so I text Ellie a couple of days before the trip to remind me to go in to the Disney Store to buy one. If you're going to buy a decent notebook, I believe the best place is the Disney Store! Plus it lights up! What more could you possibly want?! Hehe, there was so much more I could have bought, but I knew I needed to save my money. Here it is!
I hope you like my buys :) I think Ellie will be doing a post one what she bought soon. Dommie x
