Spend Spend Spend | My Latest Haul

I recently read an article where a man stated if you have a problem you can instantly fix it. For example, if you can't stop shopping, freeze your card in a glass of water in the freezer. This is definitely something I need to consider as I have had another haul but I'm worth it... right?

I have been really getting into having candles lit in my bedroom. I purchased this Yankee Candle melt holder from Debenhams. I think the pattern is so pretty and it goes perfectly with the colour scheme in my room. This was priced up at £12.99 but it came up on the till as £3.50. I thought it must have been in the sale so didn't say anything - turns out the cashier just put it through wrong. Oops! I'm not complaining!

Along with the candle holder I also purchased some Yankee Candle melts and a bag of 25 unscented tea lights for £5.65. I purchased Snow In Love, Christmas Cookie and Vanilla Cupcake. These cost £1.49 each. I have only used Snow In Love so far but it is such a gorgeous scent. It even smells really good when I get home and the scent isn't overpowering which is always a plus. Even my Dad said my room smelt good!

I picked up this gorgeous navy tartan skort from New Look for £17.99. I didn't have any skorts before I purchased this one and I think these colours are great for Autumn. 

I am obsessing over statement necklaces lately so I had to pick up this pretty jewelled beauty for just £9.99 from New Look also.

Last A/W I didn't have any knee high boots so this year I made sure I got some early! I purchased these from Miss Selfridge for £65. They fit perfectly around my legs and I love the high heel on them too! I think these will look great paired with mini skirts and skorts to add a tough edge to a girly look.

In my previous haul post I purchased high waisted skinny jeans from Miss Selfridge and they are so comfy and fit perfectly that I decided to purchase them again in indigo for £34. 

I only have two black dresses in my wardrobe and one of them is a ball gown so I decided to purchase a turtle neck mini dress from Miss Selfridge for £18. I can't wait to wear this out and team it with my new boots and a leather jacket for the day time or high heels and a statement necklace for a night out.

Lastly from Miss Selfridge, I picked up this pretty blue dress in the sale for £17.50 (usually £35). Its a trumpet dipped hem dress - not something I'd usually go for but I couldn't resist and it was perfect for a night out in town!

As the weather is starting to get colder I thought it was a good idea to purchase some long sleeved tops. I picked up this top from Next in both navy and black as they were 2 for £11. These would be great with skinny jeans or with a skort. 

Last but not least I picked up this cute skort from River Island. It's usually £30 but I got it in the sale for just £7! I couldn't not purchase it! I've already worn this and paired it with my black long sleeved top from Next and my pink statement necklace from New Look. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest purchases. Let me know whether you would purchase any of these or what you have been buying lately - I'd love to know!
