Recent Purchases Spring 2019

I’ve been shopping recently (let’s be honest, when am I not?) and wanted to share what I picked up. I’m really loving all of them and would definitely recommend having a look for yourself!

First up is TopShop. They’ve just boosted their student discount to 20% off and you know I had to take advantage. I picked up a khaki green pair of trousers which I’ve literally worn everyday since I bought them. They’re super comfy and have a paperbag waist to really draw you in and balance out the looser fitting legs. I also found this pink top, I thought it looked kind of boho with the buckles on the straps and have found it goes really well with those khaki trousers. The trousers were £39 and the top was £12, but with that 20% they both came in at under £41.

I popped into New Look a few days ago and saw a cute little black dotted mesh top. I wore it on a night out a couple of weeks ago with my lounge mesh bra underneath and loved how it looked. I think it would look great with a little skirt on a night out or dressed down with jeans or some casual trousers.

I picked up one of my favourite things I’ve ever got in Primark the other week (big statement I know). I found this black and white horizontal striped bodycon dress and I’ve completely fallen in love. I’ve worn this whenever its warm enough to get away with a dress (and even when it’s not) and it still looks new. On top of that it was only £6, I’m definitely keeping my eye out for anything similar.

I mentioned in a previous post that I recently picked Essence’s Lash Princess mascara, you can read my review here. I’m still loving it and it has become my go too mascara both for everyday use and when I want something a bit more dramatic.

Finally, in a recent trip to Superdrug I got myself a bottle of Rimmel’s Lasting Finish foundation. I’ve seen this foundation around for years and have alway been curious about it so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m liking it a lot, it has a medium coverage with quite a natural ‘skin-like’ finish, I’m definitely going to keep testing it out.

I hope you enjoyed my little list of what I’ve bought recently and maybe given you a bit of inspiration next time you’re out shopping! Don’t forget to like, share and subscribe and follow me on instagram to see when I post first.

My recent purchases

A comprehensive list of where all my money disappears to.

Winter is definitely not my favourite time of year, I would much rather hibernate until the sun comes out again. But these recent purchases make it me actually want to get dressed and leave the house (which is a pretty big deal). Below is a list of what I’ve bought over the past couple of months to get myself excited about winter.

Firstly, I found these black checked print New Look trousers a week or so ago and I’ve worn them so much already. They’re so flattering and comfortable and look great all day.

Check Boucle Mini Skirt as part of an outfit

My new favourite skirt by far is this find from TopShop. It looks great with over-the-knee boots and a nice warm jumper to keep off that winter chill!

This might not be all that appropriate for winter, but come spring and summer I know I’m going to get so much wear out of this Missguided dress. I love the colour and the fit is so flattering, I can’t wait to live in it all spring.

This Hollister puffer jacket is so warm and comfortable and I’ve gotten loads of wear out of it in the past couple of months. Hollister isn’t the cheapest brand but the great British summer isn’t known for its tropical weather so it’s definitely worth the money.

Glamorous shirt dress in stripe

I’ve worn this shirt dress from glamorous on ASOS so much and am looking forward to wearing it more this spring. It also looks great with over-the-knee boots (because, what doesn’t?) and I love belting it round the middle to cinch it in and give it a bit more shape.

That rounds off my list of recent purchases and gives a little insight into my wardrobe. Although winter is not my favourite time of year, these outfits help me stay warm and cozy without feeling like I’m wearing a sack.
