Pay Day Haul

Not everyone admits it but we all love having a little nosey at what people have bought. Throughout the month of August I worked pretty much everyday so when it came to pay day I thought I would treat myself to some new clothes/make up etc. before starting to train as a Beauty Therapist. Not everything I bought was purchased in one big shop - some things were purchased online but with everything shown I have left a link to the product on the relevant website if you are wanting to treat yourself!

I have been looking for some black skinny, high waisted jeans for a while now so when I saw these in Miss Selfridge I had to try them on! They are a perfect fit and are super soft. I have already worn them a few times and I will definitely consider buying jeans from Miss Selfridge again as they are just soo comfy and good value for money. I picked these up for £36 but used my NUS extra card for 10% off.

When I walking to the changing rooms with my jeans to try on I spotted this bright cami and just couldn't resist so picked it up as I thought it would look great with the jeans too! I picked this up for £18 but got 10% off with my NUS extra card.

I popped into River Island to have a look around as I am loving their new Autumn/Winter clothes. I picked up this tank top for £16. I love the colour burgundy and will look great paired with my new black jeans or a pair of leggings.  

I have been window shopping for a handbag for a while now. I had my heart set on a handbag from River Island but when I went into the store all of the bags had marks on them or were damaged (I've had this problem before). I even asked for one from the stockroom and it was still marked and had the strap missing. I was disappointed but still ordered it online and was happy to see when it arrived that it was well packed and damage-free (woohoo!). To give you an idea on size I am able to put a lever arch file in the bag and still have room for my purse etc. The bag is £45. 

Like every other girl I know, I love picking up some bargain buys in Primark. Whenever I go to bars or clubs I constantly have to flutter my eyelashes and 'pretty please' my Mum to borrow her nude coloured clutch so I thought it was time I bought my own! I picked this clutch up for just £6 and it is the perfect size to fit money, mirror, make up, brush and my phone in! I also picked up these really cute Minnie Mouse '#selfie' pjs for a whopping £8. They are so cosy and really cute. 


I have been looking for a pink coat for agessss and I had finally found one that I set my heart on! I saw this coat online at Zara and thought I would need the size medium as I am a size 8/10 however I tried it on in store beforehand and I actually need the large. I still decided to purchase the coat online as I prefer buying coats that no one has tried on before me and the delivery is free over £50 so I didn't mind waiting a couple of days to receive it. The coat is £69.99.


I popped to the MAC counter on my shopping trip and picked up the lipstick in Russian Red as I have heard so many good things about it. It is a matte lipstick and looks stunning on (if I do say so myself)! I picked it up for £15.50.


I use Rimmel London's Match Perfection foundation but had run out and just by luck they had released their two new Lasting Finish foundations. I wasn't too sure what one to go for but I tweeted Rimmel themselves and luckily they tweeted back suggesting their 'Nude' version of the 25hr Lasting Finish Foundation which is £7.99. The first night I wore it, I went to a bar and then clubbing so I really put it too the test and from what I remember it looked pretty good when I got in at 4:30am (ooops). Boots have a deal on at the moment - buy any two Rimmel products for £10 so I also picked up their Fix and Perfect primer (£6.99) which does and wonders and also smells great!


Lastly, I picked up the Batiste dry shampoo in Light and Blonde for £3.99 and it is supposed to add a tint of colour to your hair which is good news for me as I hate my hair going really white and having to spend ages rubbing it in. I am yet to try this version of their dry shampoo out but I am sure it will be great.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've been buying lately. Let me know what you think of my purchases and what you have been buying in the comments below - I would love to know!
