So if you follow me on twitter you'll know I didn't have a lot of luck with sales this year. Not that I ever do, I always go out with my Christmas money and end up buying everything full price. But I thought I'd show you what I got anyway, at least the full price bits will still be in stock if you like them! I've linked everything I could find online above, look for the pink words.
I've been after a new bag for so long and I looked through every single sale and finally just gave in and bought a full price once. I'm so glad I did though as this one is just lovely, it's fantastic quality so I don't think £37 is a bad price at all. I always like to start the new year with a new bag, nothing feels like a fresh start quite like a tidy handbag, wouldn't you agree?
I also bought yet more topshop lip products. Yes, I know but shush they're amazing. I also love primark make up bags, I don't like to spend too much on make up bags as they just get so grubby all the time. I thought this one was a useful one to put in my bag as it's not too big and it almost matches, which is a bonus.
As I've mentioned before, I'm planning to set up a mini salon in my house and I've decided on a pretty pastel colour scheme with a sort of retro feel - hence the 50s style canvases. I couldn't believe these were only £2 in Primark! How could I say no? I thought the cushion went quite well too, I'm not sure where I'll put this, probably on my massage table or something, but it was so cheap and pretty I knew I had to find a place for it somewhere. I'm loving reed diffusers lately too. My sister had one in her room at uni and it smelt beautiful. I'm going to have one of these out at all times in my 'salon'!
I think these little red topshop shorts will look fab over tights and boots while its still cool and if I fancy a darker outfit in the summer months. Also, the underwear might be a bit too much information but seriously £4 for this bra. I had no choice but to show you all. I was slightly confused and disappointed that the matching knickers weren't on sale, but £8.99 for a set as lovely as this isn't bad at all. New Looks underwear sale was pretty good in my store, it's just a pain to find matching sets.
And finally, I picked this perfume up in boots on a bit of a whim, but I love it! I've always loved Kate Moss' perfumes and this one is just lovely. It's a nice soft sweet floral scent, great for during the day. I am spectacularly bad at describing scents but you can look this up online if you're interested.
