Westfields Haul!

Hello Lovelies!

If you've read my last couple of posts then you'll know that on Thursday I went shopping at the Westfields in Stratford for the first time with my friend Lydia. Well let me tell you it was like heaven on earth for the fashion and beauty obsessed...mac had its own big store, Origins was sold in two different places and Forever 21 was over three floors (I think I nearly fainted when I discovered these things!). Needless to say I could have maxed my overdraft with the amount I wanted to get, but luckily I remembered I still need money for uni and refrained from doing that. However, it had just been payday so I did treat myself to these lovely things-


1. The Zara Shopper Basket £39.99- The biggest thing I treated myself to was the Zara shopper basket bag, which I've fallen a little bit in love with and won't stop carrying round the house with me and yes using a new bag just to transport your things between rooms is perfectly acceptable (I hope). I went with the intention of buying this as I was in desperate need of a new uni and handbag and as I actually wanted it to last a long time I thought I might as well spend the forty pound on the real deal rather than getting the primark version. In my opinion it's worth every penny and did I mention Mollie from the Saturday's also has this bag...

2. Primark studded slipper shoes £10- After spending quite a bit in Zara I thought I should bargain hunt for the rest of the trip and bargain hunt I did because I found these gorgeous bang on trend studded slipper shoes in primark for only a tenner. I can't get enough of the stud trend at the moment and really badly wanted a pair of these infamous slippers after seeing them on so many of my favourite blogs lately and they certainly make a nice change from my boring black flats!


3. Primark loafer pumps £8 Another shoe bargain I found in good old primarni was these lovely loafer pumps for only eight pound. I can't tell you how long I've been searching for the perfect brown loafers, I once even spoke about loafers to my boyfriend in my sleep hahaa so obviously I was very happy to find these comfy, dainty and stylish ones.


4. Next volumising mascara £5- The only make up item I got was the Next volumising mascara. I know what you're thinking, why would a beauty enthusiast buy a mascara from Next? Well it's all down to Corrie from dizzybrunette3 recommending it and saying she might even prefer it to the Benefit 'they're real'. Obviously the five pound price tag fits in very well with my budget blog so I'm very pleased to report I'm highly impressed with it so far, but a full review will follow soon.


5. Paperchase notepads £3- A bit of a random purchase came in the form of two cute notepads from Paperchase, well I suppose it's not that random really considering the amount of time I spend writing various wish lists and to do lists and now I have two very pretty places to do that in for only three pound. Lovely stuff.


6. Lee Stafford super spray £4 (with offer)- Last but not least I bought the Lee Stafford super spray from Boots in a three for twelve pound offer that I went into with Lydia so it only cost me four pounds instead of about nine. It might seem like quite a random product to buy for my hair but I've been really enjoying using the Lee Stafford sea salt spray to add some beachy waves to my hair and I thought a little bit of this sea salt/wax/hairspray super product might give my curls a bit more lift and help them last longer.

It's not only the shopping that's amazing at westfields but also the food! They have a ridiculous amount of places to eat and as I was having a craving for my new favourite place, wagamamas, we went there and I had my favourite dish which is the yaki soba. And because I always have seperate stomach space for pudding we then made our own yoomoo frozen yoghurt cups which were quite fun and really yummy!



Apologies if that post was a bit long and photo heavy! But anyway I had a really fun time at the party I went to last night, got in at half five this morning though so I'm spending today recovering, watching Dr Who and X Factor and eating Chinese with my man, perhaps I'll attempt something productive tomorrow...

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
Love Meg

  1. I really want those Primark studded pumps! I have ones from Matalan but they're taking a while to soften up and the Primark ones look so comfy already I want some to wear while my others soften up! Sounds like you had fun last night! Can't get over how delish the Wagamamas looks!!
