I went shopping :-))

I was feeling much better on Friday so after a really boring week thanks to my tonsils, I went shopping with my mum.
I didn't really need anything specific but I haven't been shopping for a while so I just wanted to look round, and ended up buying quite a bit!

When we were in the queue in Primark I spotted these cute little gift tags and money envelope things and as they were only £1 each we got them. I feel so Christmassy and it's November so it's close!! Yayyy

When we were in H&M in the queue I spotted these sweet cat mask, I went as a cat for Halloween and my mum thought it was sweet so we ended up buying it. I'm hoping I go to a fancy dress new year's eve party (optomistic i'll even be invited to a party) so I can wear these haha

me on halloween minus cat mask haha
We went to Primark because I was hoping to get a tartan dress (the majority of instagram have it so you might have seen it) but they didn't have my size! I've since found my size and tried it on but the only 8 had a hole in it wtf so going to have to get it another time! A lot of people don't like primark but I own a worrying amout of clothes from there.. it's so cheap that even if the quality's not the best you can buy like 10 for the price you'd usually pay for 1 and some stuff is pretty okay!! I only got a couple of things (and the Christmas tags)

 Okay tights are kind of boring.. but I like these ones! There's lots of different colours and they're so thick and warm so I wear these a lot to sixth form, a got another pair of the cream ones (or 'oatmeal' as the label describes) and some navy. They're £3 each and they had some patterned ones too, I'm hoping they get some cute patterns so I can buy more!

I really like this blouse! Okay maybe not when worn just with leggings.. It's not as bright as the photo suggests and was reduced from £12 to £5, which I thought was such a bargain! I love the pattern and thought it would look nice with skirts :-))

it covers part of my face, what's not to love

Okay I have a weird family who are obsessed with being warm.. idek. So my mum is always keen for me to buy coats which is slightly weird and usually I refuse, but I've liked this kind of coat for a while (idk how to describe it :-(() I saw it in H&M and thought it was pretty, and when I put it on I loved it. It's so warm thanks to the fluffy lining and even the pockets have warm lining, the hood has detachable fur. I got it in a 12 which is a bit bigger than my normal size, because coat arms are always too short for me (idk why?!) and also because I prefer having them slightly too big as you can wear jumpers/layers and still be able to do it up. It also has a thing where you can make it tighter, which I normally don't like the look of but I don't think this ruins this. It was £40 which I thought was a pretty good price :-))

We did all of this shopping in town then came home. In topshop I tried on the PRETTIEST bikini which I love so much but they didn't have my size, so my mum suggested we went to another topshop to see if they had it there. It's out of stock online but it was navy with a white edge kinda thing?? It's high waisted and ah I loved it in the summer but never saw it in store and ah. They had the top in a six in town and I am sooo flat chested I thought it might fit but no :-( I am mourning for the bikini.
 Anyway!! So we went to another shopping centre and we looked round and didn't find anything, then we were in River Island and as we were leaving I noticed the 'last chance to buy' section and I could just see a lacy collar so I picked up the clothing and it was this! It's a velvet playsuit if you couldn't tell and omg I love it. I was trying it on and I love it ah. It's so flattering and cute and I'm planning to wear it to friend's birthdays and stuff ah it's so cute!!

I didn't buy all that much but I like what I did buy! I'm yet to find a new pair of shoes so I'm looking out and I'm about to write my Christmas list yay!
