Your New Favourite Store

Top - H&M / Shorts - H&M / Necklace - Miss Selfridge / Nails - Illamasqua Collide

Sorry about the lack of posts lately. I only have a 3 MIFI dongle which means I get 15GB bandwidth a month & then have to spend the rest of the month waiting hours for my iPhone to load pages. I doubt anyones noticed my absence but I've missed blogging & I hate not being able to read blogs for weeks on end. I finally caved and ordered a Sky package so by next month I should have unlimited broadband. Yays! I plan on doing some YouTube videos once its set up so please feel free to comment with any requests of what you'd like to see on there.

Okay so H&M isn't anything new considering they do have stores everywhere but last week they finally opened up their new shop in Huddersfield's Kingsgate Centre. On the promise of a gift voucher for the first 100 customers, I went down at 11am to check it out. The shop was already packed when I arrived even though it had only opened 5 minutes before. Nothing like the mob scenes you see in the likes of Primark Oxford Street but fairly busy for a Thursday morning in Huddersfield.

I was really impressed with the layout of the shop & the range of stock they had in. When I lived in Leeds I rarely frequented the one there as I never could find anything I liked or had seen elsewhere. I bought loads of cardigans, jumpers & some new jeans for Chloe as I really do love their children's range. Then I went back downstairs and got this top, these leather shorts, a navy bodycon skirt, a black usamimi hairband & some Hello Kitty socks for myself. I was so stoked to see these leather shorts back in stock. I remember writing about them way back in last year's Christmas Wishlist post. There was only one pair left hanging on the wall and thankfully it was in my size! Must be fate or something, don't you love it when that happens? When I got to the checkout the £50 gift vouchers were nowhere to be seen even though I did some speedy shopping so I'm not sure if they actually bothered going through with that promotion. I did however get some swanky free stationery, which is something I obsessively hoard. One of the best things about studying graphic design was having the ability to buy a million different pens & feel absolutely no shame.


  1. Love the shorts. It's so good when you spot the last pair and they're in your size, it's definitely a sign! xo

  2. I have that top! Love it! H&M is by far my favourite store at the mo. I can't go in without buying something! xo

  3. Love those shorts, my friend found the last pair the other day too, I was so jealous! x

  4. I think everyone has a secret stationery collection, I hope they start selling it in every H&M store as I'm quite fond of those colours and think they'd compliment my collection well haha (: I love that top though, I've wanted a polka dot top for a while so may have to have a peek next time I'm in town (: x

  5. love the shorts :) you look great! sorry but back to school supplies have a special place in my heart, office world is my mecca hahaha! xxx

  6. Love this outfit - especially the shorts!

    I'm jealous of the free stationery! I am a notebook hoarder!
