haul #5.

For those of you who read my blog on a regular basis you will know that I am addicted to shopping. I can’t stop and even get withdrawal symptoms if I don’t go on a little spree every few days. It’s gone terrible and I think since starting my blog I’ve got even worse! Every item I see or like I think about featuring it on my blog… But I’ve decided enough is enough! I really want to go traveling next year, or on as many holidays as possible anyway. I would absolutely looove to go to Australia for a few weeks, so am going to start saving now. There’s no point in throwing my money away when the world is my oyster!

I’ve decided to go on a spending ban until September when it comes to clothes. I want to buy some new black jeans and a leather jacket and that’s it. I do need a lot of new make up though, but I’ve decided I can buy those. Their not clothes so they don’t count, right?!

So below, is my last haul of the summer until I go back to university in September and treat myself to some new outfits for freshers!

Black Cameo TopNew Look – £10
Multicoloured Bodycon SkirtRiver Island – £25
Grey Flower SweaterMiss Selfridge – £30
Red Peter Pan Collar TopMiss Selfrdige – £24
Black Thick HeelsNew Look – £27
Black Winter BootsDorothy Perkins – £25
Gold NecklaceMatalan – £3.50
Eyelure EyelashesSuperdrug – £5 approx.
Barry M Nail PolishSuperdrug – £3
Collection MascaraSuperdrug – £3
Book: Jodi Picoult – “The Perfect Match”Waterstones – £2.99

As much as I should regret buying these items, I can’t help but be so happy with my new purchases! I especially love the grey sweater I bought for my Miss Selfridge uniform and believe the red top will make a perfect outfit with my new mulitcoloured skirt. I also needed some winter boots even though it’s August – standard with the unpredictable British weather! – and with a 20% off offer I couldn’t resist!

You can’t beat a few beauty products from Superdrug! I love that shop. And with the prices being so low I couldn’t help but grab a few things. The Eyelure 101 Lashes are definitely my favourite fake lashes. They look natural and always stay on all night. I only wear eyelashes on the rare occasion now, but it’s nice to have some handy! I also really liked the look of this shade of Barry M so decided to try it out. It’s a lovely summery shade!

Finally, I decided to treat myself to a new book. In the summer I love to read. It’s one of the only times I get to read a book that isn’t boring and academic – yawn! I chose this as I’ve read “My Sister’s Keeper” by Jodi Picoult and loved it, although I did cry like a baby! I will let you all know how it goes when I finish it.

What do you think of my recent purchases? Do you have any good books to recommend? And have any of you been travelling and can suggest places to go? Let me know!
Lots of love, Jessie. xoxo
