If you follow me on Twitter then you will know that I got paid on Friday (yay!) and also got my marks back from uni. I finished second year with a high 2:1, so to celebrate I took myself shopping for a few things.

First stop was Superdrug for some make up. I have wanted the Sleek Storm Eyeshadow palette for a long time now, so I got that for £5.99, and also the Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light, again at £5.99.

I also got the Neutrogena 2 in 1 Face Wash and Mask as I’ve heard some good things about it and wanted to try it out. This cost £3.79 and so far I love it!

I then picked up a couple of GOSH brushes, one for foundation and one for blusher, at £9.00 and £10.00, but I can’t remember which way round! Next stop was Primark, where I got a set of eyelash curlers for £1.00!

Clotheswise, there wasn’t much that caught my eye in Primark. I just picked up a tan woven belt for £1.00, that I also have in cream and black. I then got this dress that I have wanted for so long! It was reduced to £5.00 from £13.00. They only had a size 12 left which was slightly too big, but I tried it on with a camisole and a waist belt and it looked lovely!

I then popped into Lush for a couple of things. I got the Karma Bubble Bar which I tried the other night and I love it! You crumble it into your bath and it gives the most amazing bubbles and yummy smell!

I also picked up a Honey I Washed The Kids soap which smells so delicious I want to eat it!

Finally on my mini shopping trip I braved the Topshop sale. I managed to find a few bits I wanted, but didn’t spend long in there and the high pitched squealing and constant pushing and shoving was a little too much for me.

I got this gorgeous boyfriend shirt for £12.00, reduced from £28.00. I got this a size bigger so its a little more roomy as I like to wear shirts like this quite loose.

I then got a basic racer back vest for £5.00, but I’m unsure what the original price was. This is quite sheer and big , but it is perfect just to throw on for lay days or wear over a colourful bandeau top.

Next I got this mint green body for £7.00. Again, I’m not too sure what this was reduced from as I have thrown the tags away! I got this mainly to wear with my boyfriend jeans, as I wanted something fitted to wear with them. I love it so much and it fits perfectly! I’ve worn it twice already!

Finally, I picked up this ring for £3.50, reduced from £7.00. I love the colours in it and how its such a simple shape.That night at work I also spied this in the Topshop sale. I love the tie up straps and the gorgeous delicate print. This was £10.00, but again I’m rubbish and can’t remember what the original price was.

I thought all the spending had finished then, but on Sunday I went shopping with my niece and picked up this little diary. Its the perfect size for my handbag, and has such a cute print! This was £7.99 from WHSmith.

These last few things were bought yesterday. Dan and myself went to the Lake District for the day seeing as we were both off. He spoilt me and bought me this gingham cushion and two decorative hearts for my bedroom.

Then we went into a Charity Shop where I spied this gorgeous little handbag. He also bought me this which cost £4.99. Its so beautiful and is in perfect condition.

Phew. I think that’s everything! I know it seems a lot but I think I got some really good bargains and I’m really happy with everything I picked up.
