I Spent Too Much Money || Student Haul

March 08, 2015

Recently, i've been so brilliant at this whole "posting regularly" thing.. (can you sense the sarcasm?) I'm really sorry, I explained in my last post why (read that here), but today is all about spending money!
I handed in an important essay to uni on Tuesday, and what better way to celebrate than with a bit of retail therapy? I spent too much money considering i'm a poor university student, but i'm going to show you what I got anyway!

First up was Primark, where I got a few things. First things first, the bag. It is absolutely beautiful. I spotted this on the shelf, and knew I needed it in my life. I've been looking for a really bright bag for ages (as I mostly wear black, and something bright would add a pop to my outfit) and this was perfect. It was also super affordable. It was only £8. Eight pounds!! What a bargain!
Next up, I needed a head band for a Great Gatsby themed night I was going to (blog post coming soon!) and I just picked up this pretty one for a mere £3. It was really comfortable, and it stayed in my hair the whole night!
Finally, saving the most boring for last, I picked up some kirbies. (Because mine always go missing! Where do they go?) And these are so cheap, and great for £1.

 Next it was off to Superdrug for a few essentials I needed. First up is this face scrub, which I absolutely adore. This is my second tube (I have a blog post planned for this!) It is seriously amazing, and also super affordable at under a fiver.
I also needed dry shampoo, so I picked up my go-to one, which is of course the Batiste one. I picked the cherry one, just because cherry is my favourite scent. However, I can't make up my mind about this scent.

 Lastly, I popped to H&M, and I found that they have some really lovely stuff in right now. I ended up picking three things.
The first thing was this dress, which was £13, and I think it's so versatile. It's easy to wear all year round, either with tights, leggings, or bare legged. It's also really easy to both dress up, and dress down. I really like it.
Next was this cardigan. It doesn't look much in the photo, but it's really nice, and it literally goes with most of my wardrobe. I've been pairing it with a simple t-shirt, light ripped jeans, and chunky boots. It also looks really nice thrown over the previous dress.
I also got this simple black t-shirt, because I don't own anything like this, and it's honestly so useful to have something like this in any girls wardrobe, as you can just shove it on and go. I really like it.

So that's all I purchased! For once i'm actually really happy with every single thing I purchased! Yay!
What do you think?

Thanks for reading!
