Recently Bought #1

I have a shopping addiction. Admitting a problem is the first stage of recovery right? I feel better already! I've been shopping in Birmingham and Worcester recently and thought it would make a good blog post if I showed y'all what I had been splashing my cash on. I love reading other peoples hauls and seeing their recent purchases, so hopefully this will be enjoyable, although I don't think I'm particularly fashionable....

Ralph Lauren Check & Faux Fur Coat - Tkmaxx
Leather Sleeve Blazer - H&M

Let's just talk about this coat for a minute, cause I'm in love. Some of you will have seen me post this on my Instagram already. I got in in Birmingham last weekend from Tkmaxx for £79.99 instead of £299.99, now that's a bargain! It's so on trend with the checks and fur and is kinda making me look forward to those freezing cold days. Next up is this blazer from H&M, which looks a but shit in my photo, but it's so nice in real life! I've had lots of compliments and it only cost me £30, which I think is really good for how expensive it looks. 


Cat Dress - H&M
Basic Top - H&M 

This dress is brilliant. I got this in the H&M sale for £7 i think and it looks really good with some black boots for the A/W. We have a causal dress code at work, so anything that's easy to throw on at 7:30 in the morning is a winner for me. I also got this basic top and one in grey from H&M. I really like these tops, they are only £7 and they feel so soft and are the perfect length for throwing over leggings. H&M are doing a conscious fashion scheme at the moment where you can get £5 off when you spend £30 if you donate a carrier bag of old clothes and/or material (click here for more details), makes me feel better about buying more!

White shirt - Primark
Fluro Cardigan - ASOS

I'm such a sucker for a shirt. All my friends will tell you that my shirt collection is a little ridiculous! I got this one and a grey-ish one from Primark to tuck into shorts and shirts (it's a little too short for leggings) and for £8 (i think), you can't go too wrong. This cardigan is from ASOS, I saw it on a few blogs and it's so cute. It's a blazer style, so it really dresses up your daytime outfit without being too OTT. 


I splurged £85 to get a decent pair of shoes from Jones rather than more shitty ones that are too flat. They look a bit weird in this picture because they are suede, but I assure you they are lovely and black. I also picked up some little pop socks from Primark for these shoes and my vans, as they are too low to wear normal socks. 

Coat hangers - Primark 

Ok, so this might be random until you see this post from Miss Budget Beauty and then you will understand why I needed these. I got like 4 packs of 10 and I definitely recommend - it's amazing how much space I have in my wardrobe now. 

Loreal EverRiche Shampoo & Conditioner - Boots 

This is on offer in Boots at the moment, so I decided to get some for when my current shampoo and conditioner runs out. I've seen this collection getting a lot of love on other blogs, so I'm interested to see if they live up to the hype. if you're keen to try them out, it's two for £12 in Boots at the mo!

Room Diffusers - H&M

I never realized how expensive these things can be before, so I've been waiting for some to come on a deal or something as I don't really want to pay too much money ha. H&M have some really nice smelling ones in the sale for £4 each at the moment, so I decided to snap up the cotton flower and pure vanilla ones.

If you guys like these kinds of posts, let me know in the comment box as I might make them more regular. It's not hard, as I'm always buying something - oops!
