Saturday's Shopping Haul!

On Saturday I went on a proper shopping trip for the first time in aaaaages. Since getting a mortgage with my boyfriend I've had to be pretty well behaved when it comes to spending and clothes tend to be the thing I stop buying before anything else! So this trip was well due!

It seems that most of the high street shops are bringing out the first of their Autumn/Winter collections and there's some lovely knitwear for sale! I've got loads of summer clothes I haven't even worn yet, so I didn't even bother looking at summer stuff really. 

First of all I bought this pretty pink jumper from New Look. I don't have a lot of pink in my wardrobe, but I love this colour! It's quite fitted and longer at the back, so it could be worn with leggings or jeggings. It needs a top underneath though. 

New Look jumper - £14.99

I then popped into H&M and picked up a jumper in one of my favourite colours - turquoise. This jumper is more slouchy, perfect for those cold, lazy days!

H&M jumper - £14.99

Now for Primark! I tried on quite a few things but put most of them back, but what I ended up with was, yes, you guessed it - another jumper! This will be perfect for wearing off the shoulder, but will really need something underneath. 

Primark jumper - £8.00

I also picked up these skinny jeans in a lovely, faded pink. I've wanted some jeans in this colour for ages! I'm not keen on the belt at all, so I don't think I'll use that. I think these jeans will go perfectly with the white jumper.

Primark coloured skinny jeans - £11.00

I love scarves and the one below is a great addition to my collection! The pattern is heart shaped leopard print and great autumn colours. I love the burgundy/wine colour - I need this colour in my life a lot more!

Primark scarf - £4.00

I also had a good haul round the accessories, picking up two hair brushes, a pack of four nail polishes, false eyelashes and some floral bow earrings. The smaller brush has been referred to on other blogs as a dupe for the Tangle Teezer, so I can't wait to give it a try! 

Primark XL thermal brush - £2.00
De-tangler brush - £1.50
4 Pack of metallic nail varnishes - £2.00
False eyelashes in  "Very Fluttering" - £1.00
Floral bow earrings - £1.50

Finally, I picked up some more of my beloved purple Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Shampoo and the highly rated Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair. I am possibly the only person who hasn't tried this concealer yet!! 

Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Daily Maintenance Shampoo - £1.99 (from Savers)
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair - £3.99 (on offer in Superdrug)

When I got home I also ordered this gorgeous Glamorous blouse from Republic, as they didn't have it in store. I can't explain how in love I am with this blouse from the picture, so I really hope I love it just as much when it arrives!

Glamorous Contrast Blouse - £20.00

So there you have it, my Saturday shopping haul! I don't think there'll be another for awhile :-( I am now going to start saving for another shop- I really want a navy, hooded gilet and a chunky cream cardigan!

Are you thinking ahead to winter clothes? What are you lusting after?
