Bits I Bought: February

Off I went yesterday on a little shop which turned out really to be a bit of a big shop so I thought I’d give you guys an idea of what I bought.. I’d really recommend at the moment going to Zara because all they’re new collections are awesome even though I didn’t get anything (ran out of money woops) and HMV because they’re ‘closing down sale’ even though they’re not closing down is really good!

Superbad – HMV £3.99

Such a classic film and I didn’t realise it was this cheap, had to get it!

Hanna – HMV £2.99

This is such a good action film which I definitely recommend, and we all know I love my action films!

The Boat That Rocked – HMV £3

I love Bill Nighy so much, such a don and he’s great in this film.. The music is awesome as well..

(I’d definitely advise people in the UK to check out HMV at the moment, they’ve marked so much down so it’s all really cheap!)

Molton Brown Shower Gel 300ml – Molton Brown £18
This is just a birthday present for my friend, which he better appreciate.. £18 on a shower gel is pretty steep but it smells amazing so totally worth it!

Molton Brown Shower Gel Tester – Molton Brown
Just a free sample which I got with the big shower gel but I have this in full size anyway and it’s ‘Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod‘ which is my favourite shower gel of all time!

Tanning Mit – Primark £2
I’m not a big tanner but I’ve got a special dinner coming up soon and I can’t afford for my legs to be looking pasty.. Or my hands looking orange!

Twinpack of Face Wipes – Primark £1
Obviously these aren’t the best make up wipes in the world but whenever I take a trip to Primark I always get them, they’re such so handy and cheap!

4 Pack of Nail Files – Primark £1
For some bizarre reason my family get through nail files like there’s no tomorrow, and the dogs always eat them as well so I find myself buying new ones on a regular basis and these just seemed like a pretty good deal, 25p for a nail file is pretty damn good.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer – Boots £4.19
Okay I did it, I followed the trend and finally bought one of the most raved about products in the beauty world and I’ve already used it and I agree with everything already. These last so long and cover up really well, I won’t go on about it too much, I might do a separate review instead? What do you think? But I had to buy 2 just in case they get discontinued or something, I couldn’t risk it.

Real Techniques Core Collection – Boots £21.99
Before this I only had the Real Techniques Powder Brush but I love it so much I thought I’d give the others a try and this collection stood out to me most considering it’s basically 20 quid for 4 brushes whereas each individual brush is about £12.. I’ll let you do the maths;) Once again, leave in the comments if you’d like me to do a review on these?

Crochet Tee – H&M £7.99
I’ve just got a new job at my local pub as a waitress where I have to wear a white top and black bottoms and shoes so I saw this and thought it was a cheap and cheerful solution!

Pink Jeans – H&M £7
Definitely buy of the day for only £7 and they fit so well! I tried to get them in green as well but someone beat me to them.. Dammit.

Graphic Tee – Topshop £8
I’m sure you know I love my graphic t-shrits and so when I saw this I had to get it, and for only £8 which is pretty good for toppers!

Hoody – Primark £5
I’ve been after a thin, oversized hoody for ages to sling on when I’m in a ‘comfy mood’ as I like to call them and I saw this out the corner of my eye in the sale section for a fiver, so worth it but it’s much thinner than I expected and they come up quite small as well so make sure you get a few sizes bigger than your normal size.

Van Lookalikes – Primark £6
I really can’t bring myself to spend something ridiculous like £50 on a pair of plimsolls so I found these in Primark for only £6 so they’re definitely worth it and they’ve got loads of colours.. Pink, sky blue, navy (the ones I got), black and red so you’ll be stuck for choice if you check them out!

Black Pumps – Primark £3
As I said, I have a new job so these pumps will be perfect, and they’re only 3 quid.. BARGAIN!

So there’s all the stuff I bought today! I think it’s probably time for a spending ban now, woops.

    I've been thinking about purchasing those "real technique" brushes lately! I also recently went shopping! Bought some travel sized things for my trip, waterproof mascara, peel off green tea mask, 2 journals, and some clothes. Please check out my blog. It would be deeply appreciated <3
