Lush, Waterstones, Primark & More Haul
Last week I did a bit of shopping with my sister and I thought that I would share my lovely purchases with you ♥
The reasoning behind the trip was that I wanted a few things for a night at the theatre (my Mum bought myself and my sister Wicked tickets for my sisters birthday) including a bra, dress and shoes. Typically I ended up buying a few more things. 😀
One of the days we went shopping we decided to do dinner & a movie as we were both really wanting to see Into The Woods. We ended up going to Wetherspoons which was right next to the cinema, the film didn’t start until eight and because we had dinner quite early and stupidly left our lovely comfortable seats we had to sit on uncomfortable chairs in the lobby for more then two hours!!!!! Why we didn’t go back to the restaurant for drinks i’ll never know 😥 . Nethertheless, the film was wonderful and had me and my sister laughing. I think that the best bit was the Princes’ song where they look like something straight out of a 90’s boyband video :D.
I’m quite picky with food and normally stick with the same things but I decided to try something new and have the Alfredo Pasta and then for dessert chose to have American Pancakes with Maple Syrup for dessert while my sister had a Chicken Burger & Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Also, I love the plates! Look at how pretty they are!
Weatherspoons & Into The Woods
Black Patent Leather Bow Flats ~ Primark ~ £6
After the tedious job of bra shopping (#boring) I went to various shops to find a pair of black shoes, simple right?, Nope! the pair that I originally had my eye on online from River Island ended up not being my cup of tea. 😦
After looking virtually everywhere, I thought when in doubt Primark! And I found these patent ones as soon as I stepped foot in the shoe section.
It took my ridiculously long to find a dress, which was a bit ridiculous because my only requirement was that it was black. For some reason every dress that I tried on in every shop wouldn’t fit me on the shoulders (an area that has never troubled me before) so I was pretty much dis-heartened and trying to think of something in my wardrobe that would work, and then I popped into Evans and found this dress (on the sale rack as well!). You can’t tell from this pic it has silver glitter running though it something that is an added bonus for me!. I’m so glad that I went in when I did because it was literally the last one on the rack -i’m just happy/lucky it fit -unfortunately it’s not available on-line anymore 😦 I also picked up a bluey green shirt/dress but I cant find it online and I can’t for the life of me figure out how to take a nice pic of clothes 🙂

Waterstones & The Works Books
Admittedly, I don’t think i’ve ever walked into Waterstones without buying anything 😀 but these books have been on my wishlist for a while now and I couldn’t resist! Also The Works were having a liquidation sale and we found two books which would have cost £27 altogether RRP :O
*Top three are from Waterstones & bottom two are from The works*
Boots : L’oreal Pure Colour Dazzling Colour and moisture shampoo & Dove Hair Therapy colour care conditioner.
I had tried both of these products before separately and absolutely loved them so I decided to try them together and so far i’m really happy with the result! My hair looks really sleek and shiny and I would definitely re-purchase.
Lush Bath Bomb & Cream
No shopping trip is complete without a trip to Lush right? Haha that’s what I try to tell myself anyway. I decided to limit myself to one thing and after much deliberation between the Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment and the Lonely Heart Butterball I chose the Love Locket Bath Bomb because you can take three baths with it!
You just have to break it apart (and use both sides for separate baths) and there is another gorgeous little love heart bath bomb inside!
The Love locket bomb smells like Vanilla & Palma Violets and when broken little light and dark pink love heart confetti floats in your bath. The fact that it glitters (the glitter doesn’t get on you) and turns the bath water candyfloss-pink is just an added bonus! ♥
At the counter the lady told us about a little sample hand & body cream called The Charity Pot that you could buy for a pound and most of the proceeds go to charity. The smell is very subtle and smells mostly of shea butter, it is actually really moisturising and i’m considering purchasing the full size pot of it.

Thank you for listening to me ramble on 😀
