I've recently done quite a lot of shopping, bad I know! But you know, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. I bought a few items from two local Primarks, I made a little ELF order and today I popped into my local Lush store to pick up a couple of Christmassy bath products.
Burgundy Quilted Tee - £6
I've seen quite a few people with the black version of this top, but I really like the colour of this one. I like that the sleeves are slightly rolled up, and this is probably the most casual top I've bought in a while.
Teal Mesh Jumper - £6
I don't think I own any other clothes in this colour, which is why I think I was drawn to this. It looks really lovely off the shoulder with some black jeans. But I also love how it looks layered with blouses and shirts.
Black Fluffy Jumper - £10
I finally found it! I've been looking for this infamous jumper everywhere and I've only just found one in my size! It's so soft and snuggly, but truth be told, I do feel like a gorilla when I wear it.
Monochrome Patterned Tee - £5
I've literally been obsessed with monochrome recently, and when I spotted this tshirt, I obviously had to buy it! It's such a nice over sized fit, and I like that the pattern doesn't continue onto the back. Again, waaay more casual than my usual picks, plus I honestly don't think this looks like I bought it from Primark.
Tartan Pyjama Trousers - £6 // Long Sleeved Top - £3.50
Yep, I think I've found my Christmas pyjamas. The fabric of the trousers is so soft and fleecey which I really wasn't expecting! I couldn't find a matching top in my local Primark, so I picked up this long sleeved top from their basics line.
Gold Statement Necklace - £3
The last item I bought from Primark was this lovely simple chain necklace. It looks so effortless with just a simple top, tucked into a skater skirt. Well done Primark's jewellery designer, well done!
Eye Crease Brush - £1.50 // Eye Blending Brush - £1.50 // Small Stipple Brush - £3.75
I've been meaning to buy a couple more brushes, and when I saw that ELF were offering free delivery, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to buy a couple! I haven't really used these yet, but when I have - expect to see a full review!
Baked Blush in Pinktastic- £3.75 // Nail Polish in Rosy Raisin - £1 // Baked Eyeshadow in Toasted // £3.75
I've been lusting after a new highlighter for a while (Soft and Gentle I'm looking at you), and when I saw this beauty on the website I added it straight to my basket. The polish - a lovely burgundy shade - was too pretty to turn down. Again, the eyeshadow looked too pretty to ignore!
Melting Snowman - £2.25 // Candy Mountain - £2.65
I featured both of these product in my Lush Christmas wishlist, and I'm so glad I bought them. Candy Mountain smells exactly like Snow Fairy - perfect! And, The Melting Snowman is the cutest bath melt I've ever seen.
Finally, while at the Origins counter today I was given a sample of the infamous Clear Improvements Mask to try. I've been meaning to get this for a while, and I can't wait to use it! Plus, I love the whole try before you buy thing, it makes skincare shopping so much easier!
If you've read all the way to here - give yourself a congratulatory pat on the back! That was definitely the longest haul post I've ever written!
Have you tried any of these products?
