Saturday Haulin.

Honestly, its been such a long week. Exam. Assignments. I'm so happy to be on a break right now. The last two months have been 'go go go' that there hasn't really been much time to just sit back and hang out with friends. Throw in some shopping and coming home to chill with a DVD and you get a happy Jess. 'The Bling Ring' is one of my favorite movies of 2013 and I'm so happy it's finally out on DVD. Sofia Coppola will forever remain one of my favorite directors. I love her vision and the style of her movies, always so whimsical and flowy. The female perspective rather than the male. 'Marie Antoinette' shall also remain a firm favorite. 'The Bling Ring' is a true story based on the 'Vanity Fair' article 'The Suspects Wore Louboutins' and is a brilliant portrayal of a celebrity obsessed generation taking things that little bit too far. I loose myself in Paris Hilton's label filled wardrobe every time I watch this movie. Not to mention, Emma Watsons take on Alexis Neiers was perfect. That accent. If you haven't watched this already, you need to.
I haven't shopped in months. How have I survived you ask? I don't know but it's been hard. I've had a wishlist as long as my arm beginning with Boots and ending with Penneys. 3 for 2 caught me and I wandered out with a few things I really didn't need. As if I needed more of an excuse to wander in there, now one of my besties works in there.. Oh lordie. Cara Pharmacy recently took over a chemist in our town and the deals in there are unnatural. Essie nail polishes are currently down to 3.20€ from 9.99€. So I bought three cause well I need to. Do I really need a reason?.....maybe. I picked up an Apricot cuticle oil, the shades 'Blanc' and 'Mango Bango'. Was so happy to get 'Blanc' as I've been after it a while. I may need to go back to Cara for some more. If you're a fan of the L'oreal Micellar Water, it's currently 4€ in there. Bargain. Especially as I've literally just ran out of mine. I've actually mentioned it in a post before which you can find here. I also hit the sale in Tally Weijl and picked up a few things I've been after for a while. A good chunky jumper to keep me nice and toasty during the winter months. Although we so seem to be having a mini heatwave at the moment so maybe not such a wise purchase. If you guys are looking for a good album, you should know I'm obsessed with Lorde - Pure Heroine. It's so refreshing to sit down and listen to. I hate 90% of everything on the radio these days and over sexualized music videos. Lorde is like a breath of fresh air in a Rihanna obsessed age. Lets not go on a rant here, cause I so could. Two words, Blurred Lines.. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Love the post. You'll have to let me know if the vaseline spray and go is worth it. :-) I had like 3 essies in my hand but couldn't decide. I'm so going back tomorrow!

Oh my god, I cannot get over that amazing value on Essie you got there! So jealous. I usually pick them up in TK Maxx on discount but the colour selection isn't brilliat to be honest.

I have yet to see The Bling Ring but I feel like I should since it was mentioned in my computer forensics class recently by the lecturer! It's so creepy what people do today to get closer to celebrities!

I really want to see the bling ring! I remember everyone talking about it when it was in the cinema! :) x
