A couple of new purchases

Does anyone else find that when you go shopping for a specific item, you end up buying everything but the item you went out for?

That was exactly what happened last week- I wanted to find a graduation outfit, but ended up buying a top, shoes and make up instead!

I've been loving sheer tops recently, so when I spotted this one in H&M, I couldn't resist picking it up. It goes on quite baggy, but it looks lovely and casual when worn with jeans.

I've been trying to find a nice pair of flats for weeks, and these ones from Dorothy Perkins are so cute with the little zip flowers.

Whilst in Dorothy Perkins I also picked up a pair of flat black boots to wear with skinny jeans during the cold winter month. A few days later, whilst browsing in Primark, I came across another pair of black boots, this time with a small heel, for a much needed height boost!

Finally my boyfriend kindly treated me to the Urban decay razor sharp ultra definition finish powder. I was recommended this by Helen and absolutely love it. It goes on completely translucent, and gives me a perfect semi-matte finish!

What have you been buying recently?

  14. I'm so glad you like the Urban Decay HD powder! It's great isn't it? Are you managing to use it straight from the container and puff? Or have you had to decant it into a normal powder container like me? x
