Some Things I Bought Recently...


-- A mini haul'in --

Over the past few weeks I've been trying so hard to control my spending. I may have spent around £80 in Primark this month, BUT it was on essentials like jumpers, a coat and flannel pajamas because I didn't have hardly anything. It was like summer threw up in my wardrobe so I needed a clothes update. Aside from that, I made little purchases and got a couple of freebies with my points cards, so here's a little haul for you guys to see what I buy that isn't Lush or a Boots haul haha.

001: Cath Kidston Snail Doorstop:
This guy is probably one of the cutest purchases I've ever made this year - and from the brand. He's colourful, pretty and a novelty take on the little garden friends that come out at this time of year. It's handy to have a doorstop especially when there's a draft in the house. *shudders* I'd like to think I'll have Steve (yes I named him don't judge me) for years and he'll match my future interior decor.

002: Insta Polaroid Prints from Urban Outfitters:
Paying £1 a print is a huge steal in my opinion as I always have a few coins lying around in my purse. I love the machine in the Oxford Street store as you can print directly from your Instagram account and the ones I went for were my friends at the House of Minalima, meeting up with Vicky (vvnightingale) for a coffee and some Lush pals at the showcase. These will adorn my picture string wall. Too cute.

003: Frankie Magazine:
I've been OBSESSED with this Australian independent magazine for over a year now, and because it's bi-monthly, it's always a joy to see the new issue on the shelves of WHSmith. This month's cover is my new favourite and it's full of cute arty articles and amazing people. I'll do a review on it later this month!

004: NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Lipstick in Vintage:
Out of all these products, this one is the only one I got for free. I used my Boots points and got this gorgeous dark berry liquid lipstick. I've not stopped wearing it for a whole week, and you can read my review on it here. I really love NYX as a brand and their products have amaazzinngg quality.

What have you guys picked up recently??
