Haul!

   After uni today I ventured into Nottingham with the intention of picking up some foundation samples, a belt, some gloves and a skirt (I had a very particular one in mind.. black chiffon, pleated, high waisted, just above the knee - surely I'm not asking for too much?!). Here is what I brought back with me.

Belt - Primark £2.50    Top - Primark £4   Tights - New Look £5 (eee!!)    Bracelet - Miss Selfridge £4 (£5 w/o student discount - 20% off at the moment!)    Little jar (!?) sample - Estee Lauder Doublewear in Ecru    Mac samples - both NC15 Prolongwear and Studio Sculpt

   I did actually get some gloves from Primark too, but forgot to include them in the photo - just really bog standard black gloves, 2 pairs for £1, can't go wrong! It's so cold here at the moment and I've lost my mittens!

   I'm sure I'll do a post soon showing the belt / skirt / top in an outfit. Was actually hoping to find some jewelry in Primark, but was a bit let down by their current stock. Loving the tops Primark have in at the moment though, as well as the shoes, but I really don't need any more shoes (must get round to selling the many unused pairs I own on eBay!). 

  I rarely wear silver jewelry, but I was really taken by the bracelet - also Miss Selfridge currently has 20% off for students. Pretty sure this applies to their sale too (which is literally the whole of the upstairs in Nottingham, so tempting to pick a few bits up, but I resisted!). I saw Chloe's post (hello plum) where she was wearing a more or less identical bracelet from Topshop and loved it, so it's handy that Miss Selfridge had this one as I didn't visit Topshop today!

   I LOVE Henry Holland tights! I nipped into New Look to look for a skirt but came out with these beauties! I must admit - I haven't really taken a liking to the most recent collection, but I always seem to come across them in the sale and they're always the last pair! These were £5, reduced from £15, unopened- as I'm weirdly fussy about that! I have about 4 pairs of tights from various HH collections already, just because I love wearing them. Will see if the bones tights grown on me...

   As for the samples, I'll blog about these in detail another day.
