Haul: New Look, Matalan, Internacionale, Dorothy Perkins & Superdrug

Somebody please take my purse off me and don't let me spend any more money?! I have no self control when it comes to mid-season sales and student discount. These are just a few things I have picked up over the past week.

 Tan Mid Wedge Shoes: New Look £17.99
I love these shoes! I really like that they are not quite a flatform, but not a full-on wedge either. They're so easy to walk in and are perfect for the day time. In an ideal world I would also have a black pair, but I must be sensible!

 Pastel Stripe Jumper: Internacionale £22.99 £12.00
I spotted this in the Internacionale sale whilst having a quick mooch around town on Monday, but didn't buy it at first, but this was one of those items that you get home and can't stop thinking about how much you want it. I don't actually own a proper jumper, and the pastel colours on this make it perfect for the more chilly Spring days. I went back yesterday to see if it was still there, and it was, so I snapped it up!

Bright Tropical Print Blouse: Matalan £16.00
This is probably the brightest item of clothing I have ever owned in my life! I've been trying to brighten up my wardobe a little for Summer and this certainly does it! I can't wait until we get a bit of sun so I can wear it out, it's really loose and flowy with a dipped hem and slits in the sleeves, which I love.

 Collar Necklace: £10.00 £1.00
Triangle Ring: £5.00 £1.00
(Both Dorothy Perkins)

I featured some Dorothy Perkins jewellery bargains in my last haul, and couldn't resist going back to pick up a couple more things. Absolute bargains!

 Barry M Mint Green, Barry M Matt White: £2.99 each
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Medium: £4.19
(All Superdrug)

I love mint green nail polishes and I have been needing a new one, so I opted for the cheap and cheerful Barry M. This is now my third repurchase of the wonderful Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer and I still love it as much as I did the first time I bought it! As Superdrug currently have a 3 for 2 offer across all cosmetics, I picked up another Barry M polish in Matt White as I didn't have a white polish and I think it is a staple colour to have in your collection.

I think a spending ban is in order!

  6. Well.. that has certainly made me wish to run to Dorothy Perkins jewellery sale! Haha. I have similar spending issues, and thought that maybe seeing other people's hauls would be enough for me.. but no, no it's not.
    That blouse is bright! But must really suit you with your dark hair :)

  14. oh my gosh I loveeee that jumper it's gorgeous!! I so wish there was an internacional store where I live :(
    gorgeous shoes, I tried those on in black and fell in love with them but I'm not technically allowed to wear heels because of a medical condition so I was very controlled and didn't buy them although I've been dreaming of them ever since!
    I purchased that concealer recently and I love it, especially for under eye black circles as many beauty bloggers have said :)
    Love Holz oxo
