Topshop Wish list || Abi Street


For me, shopping is either love or hate. I have found that recently I've really wanted new clothes but nothing is catching my eye. However, I was in Cardiff the other day with my friend and she was looking in Topshop for a present for her friend, I was quickly walking through trying to avoid things so I didn't spend money and I saw soooooo many things I was dying to buy. So I thought I would do a blog post on some of the things I spotted. 

1. TIKA2 High Vamp Skaters £20.00
These are all over the blogger community recently, and I really see why. These are amazing!!! Skater shoes are really on trend at the moment. They go with absolutely everything  and are really comfortable! With these Topshop ones I really love the snakeskin print, it just adds a bit more texture but is so subtle

2. Slant Eyeshadow Brush £4.00
I really want to expand my makeup brush collection, but with the better branded brushes being quite expensive, I struggle to justify it with the low budget I'm on. But when I saw this and for only £4, that is a bargin! I don't really know the quality of these brushes, and I'm sure they aren't as good as the Real Techniques brushes, but for such a small price I'm sure it will do the job. I've also seen some makeup brushes in H&M which are even cheaper, there was a slanted eyeshadow brush for only £1.99!!!!

3. MOTO White Joni Jeans £36.00
Joni Jeans are my all time favourite jeans, I even have a pair on right now. I'm really loving white jeans at the moment, every time I see them I get envious of the person wearing them. I'm not sure if I would have the confidence to wear them and I'm sure if I did have them I would instantly spill something on them. None the less, I desperately want them! White Jeans are so on trend at the moment and can easily be styled into a monochrome outfit.

4. Wrap Front Bralet £22.00
I have seen so many of these recently and I love the Missguided ones, but everytime I try and order one they are always sold out. I saw these and fell in love with it! Pastel colours are such a strong s/s14 trend and this can be dressed up or down. 

5. Glow Highlighter in Polish £9.00
I've have heard so many good things about Topshop makeup and I don't actually own any. I really want to get some highlighter as I'm beginning to expand and experiment with my makeup. I've read some amazing reviews on this product so I'm dying to try it out!

6. Lips In Beguiled £8.00
Once again, I've heard so many good things about Topshop Lipstick. I had a similar colour to this but from Seventeen, however I lost it on a night out and was absolutely gutted. I need to invest in a similar colour to that one and as soon as I laid my eyes on this I fell in love. Wine/berry coloured lipsticks are my all time favourite. I think they look flawless on any skin tone.

7. NINA Heeled Jelly Shoes £26.00
I have already got a pair of jelly shoes (See here) and I love them so much. I'm going away in April and I really want some pastel coloured jelly shoes to take with me and to prepare for the hotter summer months. I think this is such a beautiful baby blue colour and I love the heel on them!

Mothers Day Gift Idea's || Abi Street

So I saw this on Tumblr and just thought it was perfect!! I am going to do a mothers day gift inspiration post. I feel sometimes mum's are quite difficult to buy for, so hopefully this will help some people out!!

Now, what mother doesn't love flowers and chocolate? This gift is for someone who doesn't have a great deal of money and just wants to get something cheap and cheerful! You can pick any of these up in local supermarkets. I'm sure most supermarkets will have deals on choc close to mothers day as well which is always a bonus!

When I have a bit more money to spend on people, one of the things I love to do is to create little gift bags full of their favourite things. For example - if I was doing this for my mother, I would have a gift bag full of Body Shop and Lush products, galaxy and a photo frame with a lovely picture of me and her in. This is one of my favourite things to do because it shows people that you have really thought about them and their favourite things. But you can still have a small budget and achieve this.

If you have the money then why not spoil your mother by taking her on a spa day, a nice weekend away, or even a show/concert that she is dying to see. Although to some people this might seem as though you are just flashing the cash. There will still be some thought in what you pick to suit your mother. whether it be a trip to her favourite city or that show she has been waiting to see for months it will be special to her.

& for people that really don't have any money to spend. Then get a pizza out of the freezer, put on that DVD you always watch with her and use those facemasks that have always been in the cupboard. Mothers day isn't about materialistic gifts or seeing how much you can spend on someone. Its a day full of showing appreciation for the woman that has brought you up and showing them the love that they've always shown you.

*** I would like to add that I understand not everybody has a mother and there are many different circumstances to who people see their mother figure as. And this is in no way to offend anybody or brag of anything. I just thought that this would be a nice post to read/write around this time of year and isn't intentionally set out to hurt/offend anyone.

What are you buying for your mother?

Spring has sprung || Abi Street

It is a sunny day in Wales today so I thought I would do an outfit post! This weather is my favourite, its not too hot or too cold but the sun is shining. My outfit today is really simple but I love this outfit none the less. I've just paired a crop top with some blue jeans and white converse. Very simple. This outfit is so comfy and is perfect to wearing day to day. I've layered it with a jacket as well for the evening when it gets slightly colder.

Crop top - Topshop
Joni Jeans - Topshop
White Converse - Office
Ray Bans - Fake (sorry, not sorry)
Jacket - Zara
What is your simple sunny outfit?

Fashion & Beauty Haul || Abi Street

So the poor university student I am struggles to go shopping. Usually, its when I return home and beg my mum for new things. I thought I would do a haul of some things I have recently got my hands on.

1) MUA Eyeshadow Palette - Undress Me Too

I was never really the biggest fan of eye shadow, but after slowly creeping into the blogging community and endlessly watching YouTubers and reading blogs. I've courageously decided to begin exploring with makeup techniques. Now I am in no way a makeup artist, in all fairness, I am absolutely rubbish at makeup. But experimenting with different products and styles has been something I have found myself doing more of. As my budget is seriously low, I really can only stick to high street brands. As much as I would love to get my hands on the Naked Palette's, that goal really is a stretch too far.

I absolutely adore this Mua Palette, and use it near enough everyday now. I find the colours really pigmented and last all day. The colours are absolutely beautiful and it really is worth the £4.00 my mother (oopsie) paid for it.

2) Maybelline Baby Skin Primer

Now, I have read a lot of reviews on this primer, some good and some bad. This is the first primer i've used. I have been dying to get my hands on the Benefit PoreFessional, however once again that would break my bank. So I thought, as my mother was treating me I would get this and try it out.

So far so good, I wouldn't say that it completely eliminates the view of my pores, but it does reduce them an awful lot. I've always struggled with blackheads (gross I know!) but this does help. The one thing I really dislike about this product is the feel of it on my skin/fingers. It feels really oily, i'm not sure if all primers feel like this but the feeling on my skin makes it seem as if its bad for my skin. As for the price (in Superdrug) its £7.99. I think this price is completely reasonable, its not too expensive for those of us shopping lower brand.

3) Boots Eyelash Curlers

This is a really boring item that I picked up. I had eyelash curlers before which were from avon, but whilst squeezing slightly too hard on Christmas eve, I snapped the curlers (they were on plastic) and stabbed myself in the eye! Ouch!! However, these eyelash curlers really do work wonders for me. I curl my lashes every morning before putting mascara on and they stay curled all day long. for £4.50 these really do not fault me at all, and they are an essential in my daily makeup routine.

4) Primark Jelly Shoes

I have been wanting jelly shoes for ages now as they were really bang on trend last summer, I never had the confidence though as I feel I really would look about 5 years old. But regardless of this, I am going away in April and thought I would brave it and buy some. I've been looking at loads of different places to buy them. Originally I did want some pastel pink/lilac ones and I am still debating buying some. But for now I am going to stick with these black ones. This really was an impulse buy because I didn't head out to buy these. But when I saw them I just knew I wanted them. Black is such a risky colour for summer sandals because if the weather does get hot (not likely in England) then it can result in burning your feet, and this is the last thing I wanted. I haven't worn them yet, because it isn't quite warm enough. But I can already tell how much I am going to wear them. They were only around £5/6 which once again is such a bargin - depending they last. I just want to add to my jelly shoe collection with colours now!!

5) Disney Socks

I love Disney. I love Alice In Wonderland. I love socks. I love these. So as soon as I saw these I didn't even hesitate, I just picked them up and carried on walking round Primark. There is currently a lot of Disney items in Primark, but I feel I would be looked upon in shame if I walked into my lecture wearing a Little Mermaid tshirt, so I have to resist buying these. The only thing I really dislike about these socks is, I put one sock on to see what it looked like and immediately the image got stretched and distorted. I literally had it on for about 5 seconds. I'm quite dissapointed with this because now the image just doesn't look right.

6) Leather Mini skirt

I bought one of these not too long ago from New Look. But the skirt really didn't fit right so i returned it. Ever since I have been envious of anybody wearing a leather skirt because I didn't have one. However, whilst aimlessly walking around Primark, I stopped this little beauty just hanging up with a load of jumpers (Primark for you ey!). I tried it on and it fitted in all the right place and I have never looked back. This will be so easy to style, you can dress it up or down but either way it is a statement piece that will remain in my wardrobe for a long time!

What have you guys been picking up recently?

Thanks for reading

Tiny update/TMI Tag || Abi Street

Hi guys! So it turns out I am the worst blogger in the world. I started and gave up so easy because I felt I wasn't getting anywhere and as per usual I was giving myself a really negative look on my blog. When I still read blogs/watch youtubers every single day. Its something I've wanted to do for a very long time now and I've realised, I need to put the effort in if I want something successful to come from it. So in the next couple of weeks, I will be completely updating my blog, i'm getting a header made for me (i'm lazy and suck at Photoshop) so my blog will look prettier and have some sort of formality to it. I have a list on my phone of blog posts that I want to do, and its one of my things to achieve this year that i will get into the swing of running a blog.
