If you read my last post then you'll know I'm currently spending this sunny bank holiday with my boyfriend in Sheffield. Well, on Thursday it wasn't quite so sunny so we decided to do a spot of shopping at Meadowhall (Does the title make more sense now?). I didn't go crazy as I'm trying to save for all of my end of year balls and holiday in June, but I was very happy with the cute things I did pick up...
Primark Dolly Socks- Earlier this year I went a bit crazy for the Topshop versions of these and paid more than I usually would for socks because I couldn't find them anywhere else, but now good old Primark have come to the rescue with these amazing £1.50 dupes! I particularly love the grey and white lace ones as they'll look so cute with brogues or pumps and skater skirts this Spring.
Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub- This was definitely a blogasphere inspired purchase as I've heard so much about these lush lip scrubs from fellow beauty bloggers. As always I was determined not to be sucked into the hype, then I actually smelled the pot and couldn't put it down. It smells and tastes like the most amazing butter popcorn and leaves my lips smooth and supple, a perfect solution to dry, flaky lips.
Primark Floral Pyjama Shorts- Now we've actually got some sunshine in our lives and my student house doesn't feel like an ice cube, I can finally leave my fleecy pj bottoms and bed socks behind in return for something a little more summery like these really pretty shorts. They cover my bum, will be great on holiday and were only £4. Oh I do love Primarni!
Topshop Lip Crayon in 'Coy'- This product has been on my wishlist since early last year, but last summer I decided to buy 'Whimsical' instead as it was a similar colour but in usual lipstick form. However when I was in Topshop on Thursday I swatched this again and just couldn't resist how bright and summery it was, almost a neon coral that I knew I'd wear so much I had to have it. They've rebranded these products from lip sticks to lip crayons recently so I'll let you know how they compare.
Have you done any bank holiday shopping?
As I said before I've been having a lovely time with my boyfriend after a whole month of not seeing him. As well as shopping we've also had some lovely meals out, watched Iron Man 3 (got to love a bit of geeky pleasure comic book action) at the cinema and arranged picnic plans in the park for the 20 degree day we've been promised tomorrow so fingers crossed that can actually happen!
I hope you're all having a lovely May holiday!
