I just love it when I get texts off my big sister, asking if I want to go shopping after work, to the Trafford Centre...don't I always!!!! I ran home, got changed and went straight back out. We did some shopping, had some tea, and then did more shopping.
1. First we went to the Disney shop looking for some Frozen goodies for the girls, but they literally had nothing! It had all sold out, which is a bugger but totally understandable. I LOVE collecting cups from the Disney shop, whether it be mugs or glasses I just love them. I have a Beauty & the Beast one which I use all the time, so when I saw this Little Mermaid one I knew I had to add it to my collection.
2. We then went to Selfridges, which has a Primark section! I know right, Primark IN Selfridges! I picked up this lovely playsuit for £5, it's so light and the lovely pink floral print is perfect for Summer. I'll definitely be taking this to Crete with me in June, it'll be perfect to just throw on over my bikini.
I also found these sunglasses which for £3 are a complete bargain! I pick up a new pair of shades every year, so I have quite the collection...
3. My Sister and I absolutely love Forever 21, everything is so lovely and reasonably priced. If I lose Natalie whilst shopping in Forever 21, I always find her at the jewellery section, browsing through the gorgeous necklaces and rings. I want to add more basic pieces to my wardrobe, clothing that can be dressed up or down, and worn with everything. I saw this grey body-con skirt and instantly popped it into my basket. I've worn it so much since I bought it, it's great with tights and boots. I think it will look really nice when it gets a little warmer with bare legs and converse.
4. Shopping wouldn't be the same without a trip to Boots now would it? I love the Bourjois Happy Light Foundation, so when I spotted the Happy Light Primer I knew I had to have it, I tried it on the back of my hand and it felt so soft and hydrating.
I knew I wanted to try the new Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms after seeing so many positive comments, I picked up the shade Audacious which is a lovely orangey, coral, reds. Whilst my sister was browsing the No 7 counter I found the Pop & Glow Cream Blush Sticks, I wanted all of them, but settled (for now) on Rose Blossom, which is a gorgeous bright pink shade, which when blended out, leaves you with a really natural looking flush.
I love spending quality time with my family, and even more so when it's spent shopping!
What have you been picking up recently? Any favourite shops?
Lots of love! xx
