My SHEIN Spring Wishlist

[Click on image to shop this look]

 

Seen as the feedback from my mothers day guide was all positive and the majority of you liked my gift guide i’ve decided to every so often share my fashion wish lists for the upcoming seasons.

The first one i’m doing is a major bargain spring collection.

At first i was very dubious about American fashion sites, wondering whether it was all a con and the quality of the clothes wasn’t as good, if there was a reason everything was so cheap, etc. But i took the plunge and bought a couple of items from SHEIN with low expectations, however they were great, they were just as good quality as Topshop and other high street fashion outlets. Now every time im online shopping i ALWAYS visit SHEIN, purely because it is literally an absolute bargain for some really cute finds.

The only issue, being a really weirdly shaped girl (as with any online shopping) is the sizes, i recommend using the size guides as they can vary drastically from other online shops. I’ve found that T-Shirts fit perfectly for me in the one size category, i like to have them a little baggy, otherwise a S/M fits me perfectly.

In bottoms i always go for the smalls as they can come quite big and i have sparrow legs, i like jeans and leggings to be skinny fit. Obviously this is far more difficult now i’m pregnant and have the waist of a baboon but the legs of a twig!

Always double check the size guide, but refunds and returns are widely accepted if you change your mind or they don’t fit!

Mini ‘What’s in my hospital bag?’

I’ve seen a lot of these going round and purely because I promised myself I would post on Monday, the fact I’m doing anything in my power to not have to watch The Full Monty with my mom AGAIN  and  have an excuse as to why I was too lazy to do john’s washing…  I have decided to go with this as it was the quickest and easiest thing to conjure up on short notice. It also got me up off my arse and actually pack my bag instead of leaving it to the very last minute like I usually do. The reason I’ve put ‘mini’ is because let’s be honest there is going to be a hell of a lot of unnessesary crap also going in my bag, but I feel like your eyes don’t need to be opened to the actual amount of junk food and packets of haribo tangfastics I get through or the less indulgent things like bloody granny nappies.

Processed with VSCO with a5 presetAs requested I tried (Edit: and failed) to add as many links to things as possible, but I’m a bit of a last season whore and a lot of my stuff probably went off the sale rack in 1998.  I don’t have the classic white fluffy rug or a sassy marble counter so I had to improvise with a (very) crinkled grey sheet and not that great a photos, so apologies there for the little effort I put into the images.

I know for the majority of my stay I’ll be in pyjamas and if my daily life is anythProcessed with VSCO with a5 preseting to go by, I probably won’t be getting out of them unless absolutely necessary. So in true British fashion of complaining about the weather, I started off with short pyjamas because in case you missed all the Facebook status’ or tweets, its very hot outside in the uk right now. Hospitals are generally hot anyway because for an unknown reason old people love to sit in saunas, in full skiing outfits and still be cold, and going off my last experience, I don’t plan on having another argument on whether the window should be open or closed. I have a striped co-ordinate pj set from topshop which are majorly stretchy and although I hate bagginess, its perfect to hang low off my wound whilst it’s healing. The rest, as you can imagine (like the majority of this post) are from Primark. The Blue silk shorts and the blue cami with embroidered flowers are sold Processed with VSCO with a5 presetseparately but mega cheap and come in Blue, Pink or White (I think), Although probably inappropriate for hospital, I thought they were really cute. From their sports range I got the grey and pink jogging shorts, they come pretty baggy and pretty far up your arse crack which again isn’t majorly appropriate but at least I have a quick escape root, haha….To wear randomly throughout my stay I’ve got multiple colours of their £3 ‘Hanging T-shirts’.

More for ‘Lounge wear’ I have my trusted Hollister joggers, they’ve seen more hospital visits than I can count so I’m Processed with VSCO with a5 presetpretty sure the nurses by now think I have no other clothes. I also have some M&S (fitting in with my future roommates) pink checked cotton pj bottoms which are super Processed with VSCO with a5 presetlight, thin and baggy and so will be perfect to move around easily in. Then towards the end of the week I have slim fit black and white joggers and a zip up faded grey tee from topshop so I can start to look a little bit more like a normal 21 year old and not some washed out homeless granny.

Purely for the fun factor and general truth of this I’m taking my ‘bored’ brigProcessed with VSCO with a5 presetht pink sweatshirt from Primark’s loungewear range. Not only is it in your face, but it not-so-subtly points out to the dr’s that I am infact extremely bored and unamused by my current situation. I also look forward to the hilarious jokes they will all make in reference to it when they do their rounds of serving really shit stingy cups of tea.

Also because Beauty and the beast is my absolute fave, I will be taking this super adorable chip T-shirt (as you can tell noProcessed with VSCO with a5 presetne of these clothes have been ironed – nor do I plan on ironing them) which was only £6 from the Disney collection – once again from my trusty friend Primark. Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

 

I have high expectations that if the pure stench of shit doesn’t upset my roommates or the doctors that my extremely stinky old slippers will do the job perfectly and so they have been awarded a space in my bag along with my super fluffy copper star dressing gown. Both my slippers and my Dressing Gown are from Next.Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Next I have my toiletry bag which is a bit like Mary Poppins’. It’s from Victoria’s Secret and my sister bought it me for Christmas. It folds out and has three small compartments, big enough for a fair amount of makeup or for toothbrushes/toothpaste, small Processed with VSCO with a5 presetperfumes, deodorant, etc and one large compartment, big enough to fit makeup palettes, hair brushes, pack of wipes and/or larger cosmetics in. It also has a coat hanger rod attached in so that when it is all unfolded you can hang it up like an item of clothing. Its waterproof (With compartments shut obviously) and a plastic material so no makeup stains it whatsoever. Also dogs cannot chew it as I have found out, thankfully, when I caught Luna with her jaws around it.

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I will also be taking my hot water bottle as I find it so comforting and fluffy and I hate the cotton ones they give you at hospitals, the material is never thick enough and you just scold yourself. Next is a novel by Jodi Picoult called ‘Leaving Time’ which was recommended to me by a friend. I love missing peoples mysteries and this one got amazing reviews on amazon. I got this book and around four others for only 1p! I’ve found whenever you want to order a book on amazon, if you

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

scroll down under the basket icon it says ‘new and old from as little as 0.01’ If you click on this you can find numerous online sellers who are selling the book either secondhand or brand-new from a tradestore for nearly 100% off the original price. Just don’t get stung on delivery charges and try to order each book from the same provider if possible. You can also use amazon prime next day delivery on these items aswell so it’s

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

definitely worth it! Next, because I just love writing and last time I was in hospital some completely crazy and strange things happened that I wish I’d documented, I will be taking my marble effect notebook and floral writing set so this time I can write down all the hilariously terrifying shit that goes on, on these wards (And there is a lot of nutters).  My Strawberry Tin is actually meant as a lunchbox but for two years now I have used it to keep all my medication in (well part of it because otherwise id be walking around carrying a rhino tub full if I was to take everything with me) it was only £2 from Tiger or Flying Tiger and then my chunky knit blanket from Amazon which is so soft and fluffy and is just so much nicer than the scratchy blue blankets that are standard in hospital.Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Lastly, because no sleepover bag would be complete without some classic Disney films. Wifi in the hospital is so expensive so for the times that I cannot afford or connect to the wifi, I have some of my favourite Disney films to be able to watch to pass the time. Of course like I said previously, my personal favourite is beauty and the beast but I can literally recite pretty much every Disney film word for word

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

and don’t get me started on the songs. The doctors and nurses are going to hate me so much and wont be able to wait to get rid of me because Disney tunes will be playing CONSTANTLY. Also shoutout to John who will be tasked with the chore of sitting through them with me for the billionth time.

And that’s all (sort of), I know I said earlier in the post I would tag the items but finding each individual product was a lot harder than it looked so instead ive tagged the shop homepage in case you wanted to have a look for the items yourselves.

Wish me luck!
