Haul: Featuring Topshop/Boots/H&M/Forever 21

It's been a long time since I've done a haul post, mostly because I tend to pick up a few bits and pieces here and there rather than buying things all at one but I have done a few little shopping trips recently and combined them so you can see what I've been purchasing.

After reading Fleur De Force's blog post on Topshop's new Gloss Ink stains I knew I had to pick one up. She swatched the shade cruel which is a beautiful deep plum shade (I'm a sucker for plum shades) even though I know we are heading into spring I'm not a fan of corally pink colours so I will still get some wear out of this.

I popped into Boots with my Sister as she was looking for a Valentine's gift for her boyfriend and found my way to the make up aisles (as always) I picked up four nail polishes to start with and until my sister bumped me back to reality with how much they would all cost I settled for Essie's Sole Mate in the end. I've seen this shade on a few blogs and decided it was now time for it to me mine. I also picked up L'Oreal's Red Ombre Kit, I know I am a little behind with the times but I really want to give it a go. I love the look of the red shade and am considering going this colour all over, I'll see how the ombre looks first though before I take the plunge!

I picked up two jumpers from the basics range in H&M for £9.99 each. My sister and I actually picked up the same stripy one (but have agreed not to wear it together!) I bought them in a medium so they are oversized and I don't like tight fitting clothing and they are perfect for work and home teamed with my leggings or jeans. (Apologies for the quality of the photo - I can't fold clothes properly and I made the mistake of wearing the white striped jumper before photographing it!)

Forever 21
These were definitely Gh0stparties inspired purchases. I was stalking browsing her instagram last week and saw that she had some beautiful make up bags. I was particularly drawn to the cream one with gold spots which is now in my possession. I also bought its larger counterpart as sometimes I stay with family further up the country and have to take more with me. The black make up bag is actually a clutch bag which I will also use as a make up bag too.

What do you think to my purchases? Have you bought anything recently?
