Women's Jersey 'ABC XYZ' Cuffed Joggers (Black)
If your looking for a pair of pants to keep you warm then these are NOT for you. However they are thin and light, making them perfect for keeping you cool whilst at the gym, or just for wearing during the summer. The adjustable drawstring makes them comfy at the waist and they don't 'dig in'. Judging from the look and feel of the ABC and XYZ printed on the sides of the trousers I expect this will eventually wear off to some degree in the wash. But I am happy with the look and quality of the trousers considering the low price (6.99) that I paid. I am quite short at 5ft 1, but these don't look silly or oversized on me at all like some trousers do, so they seem to be ideal for petite people. I ordered a size 8 and they fit just fine :) overall I am pleased with my purchase.
Ichi Women's Kimono Sleeve Dress (Beige)
I think this top looks prettier when it arrives than in the picture. It's very light and summery; it's see-through really but it has a little built in top underneath for modesty. The built in top is also detachable which makes washing and getting the garment on and off easier. Overall very happy with my purchase and look forward to wearing it when the weather gets hotter :)
Firetrap Women's Faye Tunic (Black)
I was really pleased with this item when it arrived. the pattern on the tunic looks lovely and the material (although not actually made from silk) feels very silky. This is however more a dress for warmer weather as it's very very thin. It's very loose fitting on the torso by design but the belt around the waist helps to show off your figure still. The sizing is normal; I bought a size 8 and it fits perfectly. Overall happy with my purchase and got it a bargain price too which is great :)
Ringspun Women's Embassy Beaded Long Sleeve Tunic (Black)
I was quite surprised when this arrived at how thin the material is; to me it looks a bit like a warm jumper in the picture but it's really more of a thin top. The material is still soft feeling and comfortable though. As for the fit this fits perfectly comfortably (and a tad loose) on the body and upper arms, but on the forearms and wrists is very very tight. The beaded design looks lovely however one of the white beads was already loose upon arrival, so I can see this shall have to be washed etc very delicately. Overall a nice top, but I'm glad I paid a low price as otherwise I probably would not have kept it.
Apple Bottoms Women's Sandblasted Jeans (Denim)
These are really nice jeans, although the denim is quite thin so not really suitable for wearing during the winter but okay for mild weather, and that fact that the denim is thinner I think makes them more comfortable and flexible. The design is really nice and I love the little apple pockets on the back :) I'm about a small size 8 and ordered these in a 24 waist and they are very tight at the moment so I need to wear them in a bit more but overall am happy with the purchase.
Miss Sixty Women's Pixie Slim Fit Jeans (Denim)
I am about a size 8 and ordered these in a 26 waist (as I have another pair of jeans that size that fit tight but perfectly), however I found these were too loose and don't fit anywhere near tightly like I prefer (they are quite loose and I have to wear a belt). That said they are very nice jeans (with quite soft denim and they look even better when they arrive than in the pictures) so I have kept them as my 'comfy round the house jeans' :)
Ringspun Women's Arora Printed Denim Maxi Dress (Black)
I'm quite petite at 5ft 1 and was glad to find a maxi dress that said it was suitable for short women, however this was still far far too long for me even with heels, plus I recieved a size 10 instead of the 8 that I ordered... so it was out with the sewing box as I had to alter it. This would probably be perfect for you if your about 5ft 5. Despite the sizing this is a lovely dress; the material is good quality (95% viscose) and the pattern and denim makes a lovely design, and it was quite a bargain as well.
The Other Tudors
1 New from
From the description of the book I was expecting a bit more focus/ indepth look at the believed personalities of Henry's mistresses, what they were like, and some interesting relationship events. The book does discuss the people belived to be mistresses and illegitimate children, but whereas I thought this would be some light, easy and entertaining reading it was more like a history lesson; discussions that start with a mistress or illegitimate child seem to wonder off course to their distant relatives, long lists of French names/titles and English names/ titles to the point of utter confusion before even reaching half way through the book.I am a fan of books focussing on the Tudor court (and other royal families) and this book was okay, but I think I shall stick to my novels. This book would probably be more interesting to someone who has studied history.
Playboy Women's Necklace (Pink)
I really like this neckless and am very happy with the purchase, especially condsidering I paid 12.99 for it when the RRP is 'much' higher. The heart is fairly small and dainty, which I like as I tend not to go for chunky jewlery. The heart has pink stones on one side and white ones on the other and there is a pink stone in the eye of the bunny, also the box it comes in is ideal for wrapping up as a gift, although I just got this for myself :)
Henleys Women's Jaglin T-Shirt (White)
I love this top, plenty of detail on it; the dimante design is fab, when I took it out of the packaging the top actually felt a little bit heavy. the circular material badge at the top left of the tshirt is brighter and more noticable than depicted I would say, and I really like the smoky stripes detail on the back. I'm about a size 8 and ordered the XS and it fits well; a little bit clingy which shows off my figure. would definately reccomend.
