I may have indulged in some retail therapy this half term...Had to pick up One Day after seeing it at the cinema and loving it, thought it would be the perfect movie to watch cuddled with the boyfriend on valentines day and it was. Following friends Dexter and Emma living there separate lives throughout the years until they realise what they really need is each other, it really is a cute love story. My much loved MAC pro longwear foundation is sadly running low and I cannot justify the £22.50 price tag so picked up the new Rimmel one with its pretty attractive packaging, we shall see how this works out. As soon as I spotted this candle sitting on the shelves of Primarni I knew it would look so cute in my room and it smells good although its unfortunately not all that obvious when it's burning. I'm not one to enjoy spending money so was super happy to get some bargains; New Look have buy one get one free on their jewellery at the minute as well as 20% student discount (unsure if it's still going, this was Tuesday) so I managed to get both sets of earrings for only £3.99, I rarely step out of my comfort zone and wear anything but studs, I was getting tired of wearing the same ones so was happy that my eagle eyes spotted these, they are so pretty! The brogues were another bargain, reduced to £15 then 25% student discount on top of that, not bad eh, I'm not sure how I'm going to style these brown ones though, any ideas? The plimsoles were just a replacement for my poor white ones which have been through a bit of a battering, I needed shoes to wear for my comfy hoodie and leggings days at sixth form and thought these would do the job. Got a bit carried away in Primark, ending up with 14 tops in my basket before realising that there was no way I was going to buy them all so narrowed it down to these three, perfect spring colours and all so pretty. I was lucky enough to win a £25 Topshop gift card from First Student which was super exciting considering I don't have the best of luck when it comes to give aways which lead me to giving these leggings a home in my wardrobe. I have slowly accepted the printed legging trend and have become to like them, these are super comfy but a bit of a warning, they are super long! For me anyways, suppose i'm a shorty. I must admit Primark prices are definitely rising and £12 for a hoodie was a bit of a shocker (a men's hoodie I should probably add) although the Topshop ones start at £22 so we can't complain. It's so comfy though and is really good quality, love the colour too! 

Hope you enjoyed my little haul, what have you been buying recently? 
Thanks for reading. Love,

  2. I've heard mixed things about One Day! Haven't seen it myself yet, but want to! And we could all use some retail therapy sometimes :) I don't think we have the Rimmel foundation in the U.S. though!
