Lunchtime purchases

We had a two and a half hour lunchbreak between lectures today but instead of working on our presentation, me and a friend decided to go shopping instead as I wanted to check out Primark and she wanted a Dorothy Perkins dress.

Here's what I brought when I should have been working:

I've been really unimpressed with Primark this year so was very pleased to find these goodies, especially as everything is much cheaper compared to the other high street stores I've been shopping at:

Blue cardigan (£5)
Long floral vest (£3)
Black opaque tights (£2)
Navy Chanel-esque handbag (£6)
Gold bead bracelet (£2.50)

I also got my free Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish 30ml sample as well as some coloured bangles from Dorothy Perkins (reduced to £4 in the sale, plus student discount).

So all in all a very barginous and productive lunch break! Have you been on any shopping trips recently?

  9. Beautygirl24- Thanks, the bag is lovely x

    Caitlin- Its quite hit and miss, sometimes you get really nice stuff and other times it can be quite mumsy and poor quality. You guys have forever 21 though, they always seem to sell really nice stuff x

    Happy1234- It was my bargain of the day, it said £4 on the tagged but scanned through the till as £3! x

    Makeup Kitten- You should, hopefully your store will have lots of nice things x
