Small Haul: Matalan, Dorothy Perkins, LUSH

I've gone and done it again! I cannot resist mooching around the shops and making a sneaky purchase whenever I am in town! I always try to justify it by the fact that the things I buy are quite cheap but I do think I need to start disciplining myself a little better haha!


Big Ben T-Shirt: Matalan £10.00 £5.00

This t-shirt was featured in one of my Weekly Wishlists a while ago when they first hit the shelves but I never got round to buying one, so when I saw that they were in the sale I decided I couldn't miss out! I almost ordered all three of the London-themed t-shirts online but I am glad I waited and visited my local store as I was quite disappointed by them- the detail on them isn't great and you can't really tell what they pictures on them are supposed to be. The Big Ben t-shirt was probably the best of the three so I just picked that one up.


Straw Trilby Hat: Matalan £6.00 £3.00

This was definitely an impulse purchase- I hardly wear hats so I don't tend to buy them, but I have seen these straw hats on other people and they look so cute so I am going to make this one work. I definitely wish I was going to a festival this year as I think this is the ultimate accessory!

 
All jewellery: Dorothy Perkins £1.00 each.

Of course I had to make another trip to Dorothy Perkins; they seem to add new items to their jewellery sale all the time! I love the turquoise cross earrings and the hippy-esque Peace rings... I am also starting to build a collection of these head scarves/bands as I am very in to wearing them when I have my hair in a messy bun. I accidently threw away all the tags before I wrote this post so I don't know the original prices of the products.



Admittedly, I bought this solely because of it's gorgeous purple and gold colour, but I know if you have used this before that this was your reason too ;) It does smell divine however and I can't wait to use it; I will type up a blog post on it once I have decided on the verdict :)


Are you a sensible shopper or can you not resist a bargain, like me?

  2. I love the turquoise cross earrings, and such a steal at £1. I'll have to have a look in Dorthy Perkins next time I pass it to see if they still have nice jewelery on sale.
