I've had to really watch what I've been buying lately with spending a small fortune on fabrics for my final collection, hmph! Not fun when all the bright colours are coming in for Spring + I have a wardrobe full of chunky knits + black! I have however picked up these few things over the past couple of weeks + thought it was about time I shared another 'look what I bought post'!

The River Island blouse + acid wash jeans are this seasons works uniform! I really love the blouse but wish it wasn't so sheer; it is really versatile though + love the cute bow detail! The jeans have had a fair amount of outings already; I'm usually a strict black jeans kinda girl but I've enjoyed wearing these for a change. I didn't quite realise how similar in colour the Primark + River Island shirts are oopsie, clearing obsessing with this powder-blue-washed-out-lilac colour at the moment! The River tee isn't something I'd normally pick up but I think it sits well with the jeans, quite a colourful outfit for me!

These heels were reduced in Primark from £10 to £6! I went in with the intention of buying these in nude for myself but they only had gigantic sizes + ended up walking out with these which I'm going to hopefully be using in my collection photoshoot, after a little modification of course!

Boots is by far my downfall! After every shift I get sucked in by their offers + end up leaving around £20 lighter! The L'Oreal products were on 2 for £9 offer + just couldn't resist! I'm still getting used to the super strop Elnett smell but so far so good. I've already reviewed the Barry M Gelly in Lychee + am yet to try out the lilac but am seriously loving these polishes. 

I also treated myself to some of my favourite bath bombs; quite proud of how reined in I was seeing as I haven't bought anything from Lush since the Boxing Day sale! I picked this moisturiser up when in Asda on a whim but it has actually improved my skin, will keep you posted! Ah Carmex, my favourite lip product ever! I'm so addicted to applying this, can't see this little tube lasting me very long! And finally another miracle bargain item, the Primark applicator mitt, essential!


  1. I love that River Island blouse! Gorgeous Lush buys too, I've just bought the Twilight bath bomb, and I already have the sexy peel soap, it's so lovely! xo

  2. Love that river island tee, its gorgeous xx

  3. Boots is definitely my down fall too, every time I go in I walk out with way more than I went in for! Love love love your two pale blue blouses, seriously pretty.


  4. Boots is such a drain on the purse, I don't know how I get so sucked in! I always 'pop in for one thing' and leave with a huge bag crammed full of new products that "caught my eye"!

    Love your White blouses, very nice for Spring it ever arrives! xx
