Recent Purchases

I've been trying to be good on the spending front, especially as with my birthday coming up, I never know what people are going to get me, I never know if I speak about something I like whether it comes across as a hint so with that in mind I've only made a few purchases this month.

The majority is from Primark as that's pretty much all I can afford right now! I had my eye on some floral printed leggings from New Look which were £12.99 but my local New Look only had the black and white ones, so when I walked into Primark and saw near enough identical ones for half the price and in my size they pretty much jumped into my basket!

I also picked up a pair of thick purple tights (I'm really loving purple right now) which are so silky to touch! Next time I go back i'm going to pick up a few more pairs as there were quite a few colours as I have a few dresses I like to wear over the winter which will go perfectly.

The black shoes are also from Primark and were only £5. I have a pair which are similar from Dorothy Perkins which are on their last legs so got these as a replacement.

In the Primark section hubby spotted this cute throw for £5. He has been after a throw to use at Christmas for ages and this seemed like the perfect one. I can't wait to get it out and cuddle up under it in December!

Finally, I got this bath bomb from Lush, my baths never seem to end up that bubbly with normal bubble bath so I decided to try this. It was only £2.50 and it made the bath so bubbly!

 Also, just underneath the photos you can see the new duvet set I bought from Argos for £20. You can see a better picture of it here.

Have you make any new purchases recently?
