Oh dear, oh dear. A couple of days ago I posted a boxing day sales haul of the things that I had bought online from the comfort of my sofa. I promised myself that I wouldn't be splashing out for a little while but when Mr WLL had to return a faulty camera to the shops the next day, I went along to keep him company and just fell into House of Fraser. Oh, that old chestnut.
I've said countless times how much I enjoy shopping in House of Fraser and their sale time is perhaps my favourite because they have such fabulous deals but also I find that the shop is kept in good condition too. The staff in my local HoF are great and the shop is clean and tidy, even when they're super busy so regardless of whether I'm buying sale items or full price goods, I feel more than comfortable shopping there.

For a box clutch it is an ideal size and will look amazing on a night out, particularly with an all black or white outfit. It has a gold chain strap and a gorgeous crystal bow on the top where the bag opens and closes which is the signature Ted Baker style.
While paying for the bag, I also took a look in the jewellery cases for Ted Baker and saw this gorgeous bow bracelet. It's called the Ted Baker Pave Acrylic Bow Pearl Bracelet (link here) and the one that I bought had pearl coloured beads with one gold Ted Baker one and then a silver glitter bow in the middle. They also had a black one and a pink one too I think. I saw the red one on Very last month and very nearly ordered it but didn't and now I really regret it. For someone who doesn't like the colour red, I seem to be wearing a lot of it recently!

The other items that I bought were all jewellery too and all from the brand Mikey. I remember seeing Mikey around when I was in my early teens and I was very taken with their bling pieces as they're very sparkly and quite over the top however I thought that all of the pieces were very expensive. Looking at the jewellery now, I'm looking at them as a 25 year old on a full time salary rather than as a teenager on pocket money so the pieces don't seem as expensive. However since Mikey is a costume jewellery brand, I would say that the pieces are still very pricey for costume jewellery. The pieces are very stand out though and different to any other brand I've seen out there so I am looking forward to seeing how well these pieces last. It is a goal of mine to slowly whittle away all of my Primark cheap- easily tarnished jewellery and to build up a collection of good quality costume jewellery instead.
I chose three pairs of earrings and two bracelets and all are very glam, girlie and bling.

Now onto the earrings that I bought and a couple of these might come as a bit of a surprise.

So that's it for my shopping for now. Hopefully that will be it for a while......... until next time ;)
