I went shopping yesterday and battled my way through the sales. Here's my haul:

Top to bottom:

1. I got these shoes, by London Rebel shoes from Fenwicks which were originally £19.95 but reduced to just ... £2!!! I had to look at the label twice as I thought I was seeing things. They look great with full length or cropped jeans. I was also drawn to them because of their neutral colour.

2. These shoes were also from Fenwicks. I got them for £7, from £15. The wedge on them makes them super comfy.

3. I got the blue scarf from Miss Selfridge for £5 which was reduced from £12. The long top was from New Look at £12 - sadly, no reduction on this one! Its a really light cotton material so it's perfect for a warm summer day.

4. I have been searching for some skinny jeans forever! I just couldn't find any that would fit right. But my search is now over. I got these also from Miss Selfridge for £35 (full price) which is quite expensive but hopefully they will last for ages.

5. I needed a new, plain white top so I went to H&M for this and paid £3.99

6. They had a sale on in HMV and I spotted this DVD. I have seen it before but a very long time ago. This was a real bargain - £3 from £13! Oh, I just noticed how tangled my headphones for my iPod are. I always seem to untangle them and the next time I see them they're tangled again!

So overall I saved £43!

I was really shocked when I saw this Paul's Boutique bag on Asos - it's so obviously designed around the Chloe Paddington Bag! There's quite a difference in price though as the bag by Paul's Boutique is £58 and the Chloe one on Net-a-Porter is a whopping £794.

Emma Watson

I couldn't believe it when I heard that Emma Watson is to be the new face of Chanel. Whilst I thought that Keira Knightley was great in her advert I think that it will be good to have someone younger. Apparently, they have been slowly integrating her into the brand by dressing her for events. Here she is in Chanel (I'm not sure if the last picture is but I love it anyway!):

I went shopping yesterday and was really surprised to see such an array of different headbands in almost every shop I went in.

I've always thought headbands are adorable and regulary wear them as they hold your hair off your face and look stylish at the same time. Here's my pick of the best headbands avaliable right now:

L-R: Yellow Stripe Alice Band, £4 Dorothy Perkins Bow Alice Band, £4 Dorothy Perkins Black Alice Band, £2 M & Co Mesh Bow Alice Band, £6 Accessorize Flower Alice Band £7.99 River Island

As much as I like headbands though, I don't think I'll be paying £80 for one like this by Malene Birger from Net-a-Porter. Would you?

I'm back!

Doesn't time just go so quickly? Before we know it, it will be Christmas again. Anyway, in my absense I've learnt a few things:

1. Gwyneth Paltrow is COOL! I'm in love with all the outfits she's been wearing recently, especially the outfit to the Iron Man Premiere. Look at the heels! And her hair looks great too; not too overstyled but completely complimenting her outfit.

2. Ballet pumps are a new form of torture. In summer time I practically live in them so when I recently bought a new pair (navy blue and really pretty) I couldn't wait to wear them. Big mistake. Within ten minutes I noticed a slight rubbing on my heel - within an hour it was as if someone was running a cheese grater up and down my heel! It hurt so badly and I could barely even hobble! Plus, flats tend to have no base support so it can feel like you're walking on bare ground. Next time dear readers when you pick those adorable pumps off the shop's shelf, think about your feet.

3. I really want this Oasis dress that I keep seeing everywhere. It's the perfect summer dress that would equally look great with casual flats (ahem) or with heels and a clutch for a night out. The dress costs £80.

4. Johnny Depp looks different ... yet again. I have honestly never seen anyone look completely different in such short periods of time. I found my JD calender (yes, I am that sad) the other day and could not believe his style and look changes in each of the pictures. Recently, at the MTV Style awards he looked so hot! And young! And more manly! Not that I'm saying he's feminine or anything, its just that he sometimes looks a little thin or as my friend says he's a 'weedy, little man'. Here's just some pictures of his ever changing appearance:
