This weekend was a bank holiday weekend in England so me and some family went on a shopping trip to Southampton, i only had a few things i needed to get for my leavers ball coming up in June, but of course if i was going shopping, i was going to shop well and come back with a few more items than i imagined, i bought some clothes ready for the nice weather, some new make up and few other bits too.
First stop on the trip was primark as it is super cheap, and i think why buy it somewhere else when you can get it cheaper for a good quality here. I got a green midi skirt which is high waisted and has a flower pattern all over and fully lined underneath so it is not see through, looks really nice for everyday with just a black vest tucked in, or you could easily dress it up for the evening with some lovely nude heels. I got a black and white stripped swing dress, it has very thin thread straps, it hangs well as it is a heavier material.
These little shorts are really thin material but i loved the bright pattern and will be great for relaxing around the house, but for taking on holiday to get to the beach and such. As well as clothes in primark i also bought a new lampshade as currently i just had a bulb hanging from ceiling, i picked up this paper sphere with a pretty floral pattern all over, as it is a light colour the light shines through really well.
Second stop on the list for clothes was newlook which i picked up a white strapped crop top, it has a cut out flower pattern over the top which is lined underneath with thin straps, this will be great for the summer over maxi skirts or shorts and will show of a good tan. I also couldn't resist the flowered scrunchie which a pale pink and a floral pattern again, it will look cute when wearing my hair but also fits over the top of a bun.
Lastly on the hunt for clothes was H&M where i found a navy blue cardigan, which is very basic but something i was intending to buy as it goes with a lot of things, and easy to put on when it gets a little chilly. Also as a surprise find was a little fitted shirt which is a denim blue colour and white birds on it, having sort sleeves means you wont get too hot in the summer, if England gets any sun, but you could wear with some jeans or even pair it with a nice skirt and wedges for the nicer weather.
As i can not go anywhere without looking at makeup, i found a lipstick stand and couldn't resist, so i tried a matte purple colour, and it is one of my favourites, it surprised me for the good, the colour is bright, applies easily, and has a good lasting time.
Next was the hunt for some heels to go with my dress for leavers ball which was the actual reason for the shopping trip, i found a pair from the brand, Irregular choice in the shop schuh and fell in love with them as soon as i put them on, i will be doing more of a post on my outfit in another post, but these are very comfy and easy to walk in as they have a thicker heel and don't make me look too tall as i am already about 5'9.
Last but not least was the makeup purchase, i can't go anywhere without hunting down the mac shop or counter and with the new one in Southampton i thought why not, i got the pro longwear foundation which is a medium coverage but can be built up and has a matte finish, as well as the studio fix powder which works as a great setting agent and finishes off the look.
