recently purchased #2

(from L-R, top to bottom rows) river island silver cross earrings / new look teens speckled purple jumper / topshop (sale) berry tights / new look teens burgundy bandeau / rimmel nail polishes in ....... / nivea lip butter in raspberry rose / h&m (sale) royal blue scarf / charity shop vintage magenta oversized velvet blouse / asos (sale) navy peplum t-shirt

And with this post, I am deciding to go on a temporary spending ban. Half term simply allocates the time for me to spend pondering shops, in this case in multiple places. I went to Shrewsbury on Monday of this week and absolutely adored it...think Guildford but more Northern, if that makes any sort of sense.

I've picked up some crazy bargains recently though - scarf for £2, tights for £2, vintage top for £3, oh yes. The Rimmel polishes were on a 2 for £5 deal at Superdrug: I'm not sure if the deal is still on but check anyway! I've tried both colours out and I am such a fan of the formulation. Also, this mini haul has got me thinking about my love for Nivea. Their Milk & Honey lip balm is my holy grail (I even used the term) and I am so close to buying my third tube of it. This raspberry rose lip butter is a relatively new-ish release, and I definitely like this one too. It applies so softly and has a milky colour when first applied. It sinks into the lips so nicely and tastes absolutely gorgeous!

Have you picked up any bargains recently?
