Haul post #2

Oh no, I'm going to have to do it and have a spending ban! I hate the thought of this but its just going to have to happen. I can't buy things to make myself feel better every time something bothers me or when I'm bored or upset. But I can buy things when I need them, this haul post is a bit of that. 
So shall I get on with it? Haha.
As you can see in Feburary / March so far I've bought quite a lot. Although I think compared with some people this could possibly be nothing. So items though are completely justified because I'm off to France on the 14th of March with John! (Yes were back together! EEEEEP!) So I had to rush off into town to buy some essential such as jumpers, leggings, a new bag etc and warm pjs since I'm going to Morzine which is full of snow haha.
This is a first for me, spending loads on beauty products, but this was well needed. Recently I've had odd random out bursts of spots and really dry skin. The Soap and Glory products are a god send, reviews to come soon.

I got this dress from ASOS and its the most comfortable thing I've ever bought, its so comfy I forget I'm even wearing it, I plan on buying it in Navy too. Online it said 'pink' but to me its a purple colour, who cares though, I'm in love with it! The bodysuit is also from ASOS and it is amazing, I can't wait for the summer so I can wear it. 

The dress has dragonflies on. 

This dress, oh I've wanted this dress for months, since before Christmas, the same with the jeans. I saw both just before Christmas and thought I'd buy them after and never saw them again. Until last Thursday, after my scan we popped into Bishop which is an awful place full of scruffs and shops that are pretty much always empty. Perfect the Topshop had almost everything I wanted in stock! I can't find the dress online but I found the white version, and the jeans are out of stock, I got them for £15 since they were Christmas sale stock. 
I felt like these boots were a great purchase, because I need new black ankle boots, the pair I own I've had for about 4 years and have pretty much worn them out.  I found these in Newlook and were meant to be £27.99 but were on offer for £15 then I got student discount so for £13 I couldn't say no! For the life of me I can't find them online. What I can say though is that they are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own. 

I got this blazer in Asda of all the places to get clothes! Me and my mam both liked it so we decided to buy it between us! The Jumper and Cardigan are both from Tesco. I love F&F at Tesco you really can't go wrong, the jumper is really just the cutest thing ever, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! The cardigan was a steal in the sale for £7 the one I've linked is very similar to the one I bought. Its so soft and comfy and its going to be perfect come summer. 

All of these items are from Primark, I decided since John's family are coming to France I best buy some decent pjs and some thick ones too! This pair was £8 in primark, the floral bottoms were £5 the black leggins £3 and the white tops were £3.50 I think. I love primark for essentials like this because its so cheap. 

The boring items socks and pants and tights, but I had to share. How cute are the pants? Seriously Primark have the best pants I think both pairs were £1-£1.50. The socks are from Tesco they were £1.50 or 2 pairs for £2.00 so I bought two pairs because they are just the cutest! 

I realised when planning outfits for France I needed a good bag, I checked all my largish bags but none of them had zips so off to good ole primark I go and find this beauty. Its perfect for all the items I want to take as hand luggage, it was meant to be £9 but went through the till at £6. Whilst in Primark I also got a toiletries travel set for £1 because everywhere else was charging £3-4!

Finally I got some jewellery recently too, I'm a huge fan of cute earring and when I saw these Icecream / Icelolly ones I had to get them. The skeleton ones my mam picked up for me whilst she was out shopping. 

So I hope I haven't bored you all with this lengthy post. I hope you're all well and are having a good weekend (:

Have another photo of my socks, I just love them. How cute are they?!
