now i don't know about you, but i couldn't wait to get sale shopping this year, and if any of you read my last post then you'll know i even did a cheeky bit of online shopping on none other than Christmas day! but the vouchers and money in my purse were burning a hole so yesterday just called for an impromptu visit to Westfield! cue a picture heavy post and a very battered bank account, but a very happy Sophie!
first up, primark! i had a £20 voucher to spend, but if i'm honest, i don't really like Westfield's Primark and i actually found it pretty hard to spend which is very unusual for me. in the end i settled on this leather look backpack as i've been after a backpack for a while now to go with my coat which has leather look sleeves so this was perfect for just £9. i also snapped up the little travel card holder for just a pound as i've got myself an internship up in London this summer so need something to keep my Oyster card safe - and who doesn't love a Cath Kidston inspired floral print!? the studded shoes i wasn't so sure on and was torn between these and some wellies which were very Melissa by Vivienne Westwood-esque with little studs round the ankle, but they just weren't as comfy. plus, i don't really have an shoes appropriate for winter other than converse and boots so these will make a nice change, plus they were just £10.
i also had an arcadia giftcard so was completely undecided where to spend it until i walked into Miss Selfridge and they had this dress which i must have been lusting over for at least a month now? the last one was my size aswell and there had also been another £4 knocked off the sale price since i'd last looked at it so of course it was fate! once i'd knocked off my student discount i had to pay just £6.20 on top of the giftcard for a dress that should have been £49. now i just need the occasion to wear it - i'm in love with the detailing on the back, too.
Forever 21 is probably my favourite shop at Westfield, so I will always pop in if i'm nearby. I only snapped up a few bits yesterday from the jewellery and accessories floor. admittedly, i don't normally spend more than a couple of pounds on a make-up bag, but this one was too pretty to leave behind. i think it cost about £6.60 once student discount was applied and i will easily fill this to the brim once my MUA and e.l.f. orders arrive! anyone who knows me will know i'm a sucker for rings, but i have such skinny, bony fingers that ring shopping on the high street can be a nightmare sometimes, but forever 21 have saved the day by sizing their rings properly. i actally snapped up 4 packs, 2 full price and 2 in the sale, and it's so nice to have rings that actually fit properly! the two sale packs (which i think were the silver) were just £1.99 each, and the two gold packs were both less than £3.50 each.
this is possibly my favourite purchase of the day and officially my new favourite bra! i had a credit note for M&S from some returned gifts so treated myself to this beauty. i had to pay a little towards it but how could i not?!
the next few purchases are from a few days ago, but i'll tag them onto the end of this post anyway...
the cardigan was reduced to £9 in the kids section in New Look, and i have an obsession with slouchy knits right now so i couldn't leave it behind. the knickers were just £2 each in the topshop sale, and in superdrug i bought MUA's starry night palette for NYW smokey eyes, and some lipcote aswell as i've been wanting to try that out for a while!
i've also had my pressies from my boyfriend since then and i am in love with them all so i thought i'd share those aswell! the jumper and top are both from ASOS which I'd asked for and I was super impressed with his boy initiative with the perfume - James wasn't quite so impressed with me buying myself some in the sale before he gave me this, but now i have a lifetimes supply! i'll definitely be treating myself to a lush bath aswell with the Molton Brown goodies!
|got a little Marc Jacobs family going on here!|
