blogging for a month! | EG♡

Hi guys! Today I realised I’ve been blogging for just over a month without even noticing! Although, April has flew by so I guess it’s ok. I’ve really enjoyed blogging. My favourite things have probably been talking to you guys! I love reading and responding to your comments and it’s the best thing knowing that people enjoy my blog.

  
I only started doing this because I’d love to study fashion journalism- and I thought blogging was a small step in the right direction! I’ve got into ‘the swing of things’ now and I understand what bloggings all about and how to work this thing really.

Basically, this is a just a post to say thankyou very very much! for following, commenting and liking my blog and posts because I really do appreciate it and it’s lovely to know you guys enjoy reading it!

I hope you all have a super day!

topshop top picks | EG♡

I’ve been scrolling through topshop and found so many nice things lately. These are a few of my favourite things.

  
Scarf print sundress- £42

Mom jeans- £40

Floral dress- £90

Embroidered mom shorts- £32

I’ve loved this dress ever since I saw it on Tanya Burrs channel. I think it’d be really cute in summer or even with black tights and a jacket. I’d really like some mom jeans and these ones are so nice! I prefer wearing dark jeans as light ones really don’t suit me. I saw the black version of this dress on Zoellas channel. When I saw the price I couldn’t believe it. It’s so pretty though. I prefer the lighter version just because black doesn’t really doesn’t suit my skin tone as I’m quite pale- it just drowns me out even more. These mom shorts are the prettiest things ever! I literally want to buy them right now ( but I have no money, forever wishing ). They have pink roses on the sides and a few rips in them. They’d go with everything, I really really like them ( if you couldn’t already tell )

Have a lovely day! ( even though it’s already night time here )

April favourites | EG♡

Woah! Aprils nearly over already! Is it just me or is this year flying by? I’ve really enjoyed this month and these are a few bits and pieces I’ve been loving…

  
I started reading Looking For Alaska last year but then gave up on it. I’ve just got back in to it and I’m really enjoying it. I always like to have a book to read and I just finished PS,I love you x. It was really cute and a good story. I found it hard to get in to but I just carried on with it and it was really good!

I started blogging this month and already I’ve done more than I thought I would! I just enjoy it so much and love reading comments and reading other blogs! At first it really confused me but now I understand it and am getting better!

This nail varnish is my absolute favourite. I can’t express my love for this colour in words,it’s just SO pretty! It’s called ‘ milkshake ‘ and is only available during spring/summer time so I spend a lot of the year waiting for it to come out again.

I’ve been using primarks facial wipes and I’ve really noticed a difference in my skin. I never really had a cleansing routine but now these are the main part of it! My mum has also seen a huge difference in her skin too! All round a great product ( plus it’s 50 for £1 )

My iPad! Such a great piece of technology. I just love everything about it. I got it half way through April from selfridges and you can check out that post here. It’s perfect for everything from blogging to gaming.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed your April and your day!

what’s in my bag? | EG♡

So today I thought that I’d share with you one of my favourite posts to read. I don’t know whether it’s because I’m nosy or not but I really enjoy these types of posts! I also like seeing what people find useful to have with them. I don’t like to carry loads in my bag as it tends to get heavy quickly so these items are what are usually in my bag from day to day.

  

My bag is a taupe kind of colour from new look. I got it for £22.99 and it is a shoulder bag, great for carrying all of my stuff! I love the colour of it because it tends to match anything I wear.

So, what’s in my bag?

I carry my iPad with me mostly for entertainment. I like to check out blogs whilst on the go or read a book. The one I’m reading on it at the moment is ‘ hurry up and wait ‘ which was free on the book store last week as it was book of the week. So far it’s very good! I also like to have my iPad with me to take pictures, mostly for my blog or because they’re just good photo opportunities!

The second thing I have is my iPhone. I’m not too bothered about carrying this around at all times, but when I know I need to reach for someone it’s nice to have it there. The case it has was £1 from primark and I love it because it’s all sparkly and whatnot. I also like to listen to my music on it. At the moment I love the weeknd, Vance Joy, Ariana Grande and Cara delevingnes cover with Will Heard.

The third things are my (very) small collection of beauty items. These consist of ‘Soap and Glory Hand Maid’ hand sanitiser ( you never know when you’ll need this ) Baby lips lip balm in ‘ pink punch ‘ and my one direction our moment perfume rollerball. I like to have this with me to top up if my perfume is fading away. Of course I have tissues. Someone always needs one, I like to be the one who has them because my friends are never prepared for it!

The next things I carry round are my fujifilm instax mini 8 and my sunglasses. I like to have my camera with me in case there’s a nice photo opportunity, you never know when it might be and I like to catch great memories with this camera as the photos seem more special. I picked these sunglasses up in Spain for €2! I thought they were a bargain! I’ve had them for nearly a year now and they still do their job perfectly!

The last thing is chocolate! I always like to have something sweet in my bag in case we go on a long journey or someone’s  hungry. Galaxy is my current favourite and I got four bars with my Easter egg so I’m making the most of them! I also like to carry water with me because it’s literally all I drink apart from tea or the rare occasion I have some lemonade.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a great day!
