Collective Highstreet Haul!

Sorry I haven't been very active on my blog recently I have been preparing for my gcse's and I am beyond stressed! I don't know why but I feel my biggest critique is myself and I am the one piling the pressure on myself which makes things slightly harder but anyway...I recently went shopping to try and relieve myself from the stress of revision and exams. Please don't think I'm showing off what I bought because i am truly not, I just thought I would share with you all what I bought. I got a few bargains and used my debit card for the first time which was exciting!

I did quite well in Primark and managed to get a couple of things that I really liked and what was even better is that all the things I got only came to a total of £30 which, yes it is a lot but compared to if i bought a few items from Urban Outfitters etc  the totals not bad at all!

The first thing I picked up was this pretty polka dot blouse which was an absolute bargain at £12! This is why I love Primark!! I had previously been tempted to buy a similar style blouse/shirt from my beloved Topshop although it was gorgeous, but a bit over my price range at around £40, so you can imagine my delight at finding this little beauty!

The next thing I bought is an oversized t-shirt which is something I really needed to complete my wardrobe although I can't lie and say I am a massive fan of The Ramones (sorry!!!) but I loved the colour and style-it was just what I was looking for!

I also bought these black studded pumps as I realised the shoes I already own are not particularly versatile!
 I am wanting to try these little clips as my hair is getting quite thick and sometimes kirby grips just aren't enough. Also this weird looking comb/brush type thing drew me in after seeing a more pricier version in Boots. I thought I'd give the cheaper version a go before splurging in boots!
I also purchased some angelica nail vanishes which are priced at £2.50 each at the end of the till!! I was gutted and thought they didn't have any until I found the after I had paid! Typical... Anyway i couldn't leave without them and entered the mile long que again to buy them! I will do a little review on them soon. I got the colours peppermint (greenly one) and bluebell (purple one)- both are such pretty colours.
I only had a quick browse in New Look as I knew what I was looking for, I bought this floral clip for only £2.99!

I am obsessed over Topshop and love almost everything in there and would have no problem going mental and spending thousands but in the real world it's a little pricey but I couldn't leave with nothing so I bought a couple more pairs of socks as they're ridiculously cute!

Finally my absolute bargain from 'Shoe Zone' I know what you are thinking, 'why am I reading a post that's on about Shoe Zone' but I found a bloody great bargain in there! I haven't step foot in that shop since I was 12 after my grandma dragging me in and scarring me for life after spending hours looking for shoes, but I am so glad I made a brave return! As i found these little pixie boot type shoes for £16.99! I know it's into the summer months now but living in Britain you do have to be prepared for all types of weather throughout the year!

Thankyou for reading! Lots of love❤
