My first mini shopping spree 2017

My first mini shopping spree 2017

Hey everyone, hope you’re all having a good start to 2017!

I decided to spend some quality time with my mum and have a girly shopping trip to Westfield. It was sooooo nice catching up with her as since I’ve moved out, it is quite difficult to find time to do these sorts of things now.

As guessed, Westfield Stratford was mega busy, but all in all it was a really successful shopping trip. I chose to go there for 2 reasons….1. to try and get my screen fixed in apple and 2. to visit the Missguided store.

One of those was successful, the other not too much. I managed to get my phone screen replaced for free as I spoke to someone over the phone and I think they felt sorry for me, so I was so pleased about that. On the other hand when I went into Missguided all excited, I was just disappointed. I’m going to put it down to it being the sales and simply it was a mess. I think I’ll stick to the online store for the time being.

Anyway, I thought I’d share with you what I bought that day.

I needed a diary, as I feel that this year I am going to be super organised (we’ll see). So I bought this beautiful one from Stradivarius – I love the tagline!.

Don’t stress do your best diary 

I also had recently read good reviews on this foundation so I bought it in ‘warm rose’ for £14.90. As it was buy one get one free, my mum got one as well!

KIKO unlimited foundation


I hadn’t been into LUSH for toooo long, and after reading so many of your LUSH reviews I had a craving to go there and see for myself, so I did. I actually picked up 4 items from there – the bathbomb isn’t in the photo though:

Sleepy – body cream (This is heavenly)

Mask of Magnaminty – face and body mask (yet to try but I’m excited)

Popcorn lip scub (mmmmm YES!)

Think Pink bathbomb (yet to try)


Took a trip to Victoria Secret and literally fell in LOVE with this set. I love this colour and when I tried it on it suited my shape and size really well (which is tricky) so had to buy it!

Front close bralette (Gentle Mauve Crossdye)


Then just as we were about to leave there was ZARA which is a shop I love so much. I’d say 40-50% of my wardrobe is ZARA. I needed some new smart black boots for work so I picked up these beauties for £29.99 and not in the sale (bargain).

ZARA flat open ankle boots


Has anyone else picked up some new bits this year?

    Sleepy is now my favourite Lush product but I didn’t realise it was limted edition as I can’t find it on the website anywhere! If I’d known I would have stocked up!

      Thank you so much! It’s tricky having to wait until the weekends now whilst it’s light to take all my photos, but it’s worth it. Thank you, I know, they’re so comfy yet smart x

    Really enjoyed your post..your pics are fab! Trying to improve mine at the moment if you’ve got any tips?xx

    • 8th January 2017 / 15:56

      Thank you so much! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. I just use my iPhone to take them at the moment (I’m looking to get a good camera soon) and I use a white foam board (picked it up from hobby craft I think) as a background then just brighten the images on picmonkey, I try and always get them looking bright. If you need anything else drop me and email and we can chat xx

      • 8th January 2017 / 15:58
