Following a brilliant weekend shopping with my best friend from University, I thought I would bring you a mini haul to show you the things that I bought. We had the best weekend meeting up with one of my most beautiful friends, shopping all day in Birmingham and nomming bacon sandwiches on Sunday morning. Apart from the fact we were both riddled with cold germs, it was perfect :).
Just to top it off, we both got an array of gifts…for ourselves! I am going to show you mine here:
1. New Look Tartan Skirt – £19.99
I have fallen in love with this colour combination this winter, I think there is something so autumnal about the combination of blue and green, especially as it is tartan. The zip details really give it an edge, and it is the perfect length to be worn with black tights and winter boots (without looking too mini-skirtish).
2. New Look Pale Lace Jumper – £7.00 (was £14.99)
This jumper is really light weight, and the pale pink lace across the bottom will look great worn with jeans or black trousers. Also, it was a bargain at half the price! Quite thin though, so I’ll have to wear a black cami underneath to make sure I don’t flash anyone…
3. River Island Faux Fur Leather Jacket – £65.00
NOW, this is my favourite thing that I bought last weekend. I swear when I was walking around River Island I saw about 5 people carrying this jacket around either going to try it on or buying it (which pleased me and annoyed me at the same time). This jacket is genius, the faux fur is the SOFTEST thing you will ever touch (maybe apart from a kitten or something). Also, the fur is actually detachable, which means this jacket will take me through winter and into spring, so I don’t look like a Yeti that got lost. It’s quite pricey don’t get me wrong, but I think it is TOTALLY worth it.
4. Topshop ‘Rio Rio’ Lipstick- £8.00
Originally when browsing through the Topshop cosmetics, I was actually looking for a dark plum shade, but then ‘Rio Rio’ caught my eye. A bright orangey red, this colour is really eye catching and will look great in summer, or as a daring shade for winter on those bright crisp mornings. I am a big fan of Topshop make up, and I think that the lipsticks in particular have great staying power, although the formula isn’t as great as say a Mac or YSL lipstick, it still does the job on a budget.
Also, may I add you get a very satisfactory ‘click’ when shutting this lipstick. This does matter.
This finishes up my second Mini Haul! What pre-Christmas gifts have you been buying for yourself? 🙂
