high street haul: clothes, make up & general naughty purchases

Sweater Dress - H&M (£15), Cream Knitted Jacket - H&M (£7), Urban Decay Eyeliner Set - Debenhams (£16), MAC Lip Pencil in Half-Red - (£11.50), MAC Lipstick in Captive - (£14), Stylfile Emergency Nail File - Boots (£4.99), Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot - Boots (£7, normally £10.50!), Lush Pop In The Bath Bubble Bar - (£2.90), Lush Dream Time Bath Melt - (£3.15), Lush Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb - (£3.20)

This is what happened. I went out & bought myself a set of ‘birthday present’s, for NO APPARENT REASON. Good move Lydia. I haven’t actually been properly shopping for a good few weeks & when I checked my bank I realised I’d saved a lot more than I’d thought. Notice the past tense. Ha. We all have those days where you just want to buy whatever you like & not worry about it, right?!

I managed to pick up a few bargains & a few other things I’ve been wanting to treat myself to for a while. I finally got past the horrendous ‘are you alright, would you like a demonstration?’ sales techniques that you can’t avoid in Lush.. I love that place but sometimes you just want to have a browse don’t you? I'm big on having a nice bubble bath to chill out after doing work all day so I’m gradually stocking up on bath time treats.

The H&M jacket was my bargain of the day, £7 for a knit biker style jacket! I thought I could swap it with my leather to avoid wearing so much black. I’ve got pictures wearing both clothing items on my Instagram (fashioninflux) if you want a peek!

My biggest treats were make-up purchases. I never spend too much on clothes but will quite happily part with a silly amount of money on a lippy. I just feel like it’s more of a luxury don’t you think?! I justified getting the pack of six Urban Decay eyeliners as it was a good deal, I’d probably have spent a tenner on just one anyway. I love their liners so I know I’ll get plenty of use out of them. If any of the other products are anything to rave about then I’ll definitely be back with an update!
