Today, I started back at university as a third year student- scary! Glad to be getting back in to a routine after six months of slobbing about, even though I am definitely not looking forward to the stress of deadlines and dissertation writing. I had a mooch around town after my induction session and treated myself to a few things so I thought I would share them with you! :)
Black Bucket Bag: Primark £12.00
This is the main reason why I ventured in to Primark. I have seen this Zara-esque bag floating around on quite a few blogs recently- I was half expecting it to be so hyped up that I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it but I was glad to see that there were quite a few still on the racks when I went in. I have been needing a new bag and this one is definitely going to be my go-to one for carrying all my things around. I am now looking forward to doing an updated "What's In My Bag" post, as I love reading other people's and I had been putting off doing my own as my current bag is falling apart!
Black Rucksack: Primark £9
Whilst I was looking at the bucket bag, I spotted this one next to it and suddenly couldn't decide between the two. As they are so different I decided I would treat myself to both of them- at £9 this was hardly leaving a hole in my wallet! I love this kind of rucksack after seeing them become quite popular recently and I think it will be great for days when I don't need to carry as many things.
This is a bit of a boring purchase really, but I spotted these shorts while having a quick rummage through the H&M sale racks. They feel so soft and are just going to be used as a comfy pair of shorts to throw on on those lazy Sundays.
Cucumber Freshening Water: The Body Shop
The next few purchases I actually bought earlier in the week, but I thought I would throw them in to fill out this post! I had been needing a new toner to add to my daily cleansing routine so I thought I would give this a go as it was reduced and I am usually a fan of cucumber products as they are so light and refreshing!
Wild Cherry Lip Butter: The Body Shop
I also thought I would pick this up at the same time as the toner as it was another bargain and I am an avid lip balm collector haha! This smells lush as well, which is always a plus!
Technic Carnival Nail Polish
Technic Mermaid Nail Polish
Body Care 99p each
I have always had a quick look in Body Care to see if they have the infamous OPI Rainbow Connection dupe in stock, and had no such luck until I walked in earlier this week and they were fully stocked up on them! I also fell in love with Mermaid, which is a mixture of chunky blue and turquoise glitter that really does remind me of the ocean, or a mermaid's tail, so at a bargainous 99p each I snapped them both up!
I hope you liked this post! Have you picked up any bargains recently?
