I shopped...

I'd promised myself I'd try not to spend as much money in February as I have been lately but the above happened instead... I get bored so I shop, I can't help it!

My haul consists mostly of clothes which makes a change from all the beauty products I tend to buy. I got some good bargains so I thought I'd share them with you all :) 


These gorgeous chiffon style shirts were only £5.00 each so I had to pick up two different colours! I love the gold button detailing. They are quite smart so I will be wearing these for work under a cardigan.

How cute is this top?! I love the big bow and the little hearts. I will also be wearing this for work but it would look nice with some black skinny jeans as well. It was only £8.00.

I'm going to a concert on Tuesday night and I was hoping I would find a nice top I could wear with leggings. I found a little section in Primark with a "Limited Edition" collection and spotted this beauty. It's a lovely sheer white shirt with silver studs that form pretty bows. It's longer at the front and back so it's the perfect length for wearing with leggings. The best bit was that it was only £14.00!

You can't beat the £2.00 vests so I picked up a few. The white one will be great under some of the sheer tops I bought and I love the purple colour so I had to have it!


I love the hot pink colour of this cardigan combined with the black trim and glossy black buttons. This will also go in my work wardrobe and I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it. This was £14.99.

I suppose this cardigan is quite similar to the pink one with it's black detailing but it is made with more of a waffle type material. I think this will look pretty good with jeans. Again this was £14.99.

I was looking for a peplum style top for Friday night as I'm going out for a few drinks after work. For some reason my camera doesn't like taking photos of black items so this isn't very clear! It's quite a simple black vest with the added peplum feature at the bottom. It was reduced from £18.00 to £7.00 so I was rather pleased!

I normally wear heels when I go for drinks but as I'm going out with a load of men who can walk super fast between bars, I decided to get some stylish flats instead! I really like the silver studs on these black velvet style shoes as they look a bit more dressy than the other flat shoes I have. These were reduced from £25.00 to £12.00.



When the Louise Gray collection came out in Topshop last year I wasn't too bothered about anything in the collection so I didn't purchase anything. When I saw this eyeshadow palette in Blink for only £1.00 the other day I couldn't resist the bargain. With a black, two blues and a pink shade, they aren't the most wearable colours but I'm sure you could create some fun looks with them. When I took this to the till, I was handed a black velvet pouch with pink drawstrings and inside there was a cute pink compact mirror in the same style packaging as the eyeshadow quad. Not bad for a quid!


I didn't really buy anything exciting from Boots. I did look at the Rimmel Apocalips range and whilst I really liked some of the colours, I wasn't happy with the products on the shelf. All of the seals were broken! No thanks!

I picked up some of the Nivea Stress Protect deodorants I've seen on other blogs, a 60 second intensive conditioner by L'Oreal Elvive since it was on offer for £3.49, the highly essential cotton wool pads and a copy of March's Glamour Magazine.

I did buy a couple of other items such as black jeggings from Dorothy Perkins and black leggings from H&M but they didn't photograph very well so I left them out.

That's it for my haul then. Are you tempted to buy any of these items? What have you bought lately?
