blue floral2

I’ve been shopping twice in the past two weeks, and I’ve collected quite a lot of things that I wanted to share with you. The majority of things I bought were from Primark, Lush and Boots, but I bought a few things from other places too.

PRIMARK

I bought two dresses from Primark. One is a plain, dark grey bodycon midi dress and the other is a bright “japanese style” floral print dress.

primark dresses

I bought 5 shirts in total, but I’m only including 3 of them in this post. I really like the new rolled up sleeve style that Primark have recently released!

They’re delicious, and healthy at the same time!

8. What were your favourite fashion/beauty items?

– VASELINE, BLACK LEGGINGS AND NATURE’S EXTRACTS PEACH AND ALMOND HAND CREAM

vaseline leggings hand cream

I know Vaseline is a weird product to put in a favourites post, but it really has done wonders for my skin this month. As I have incredibly sensitive skin, I’ve gone through moisturiser after moisturiser, from Simple to Cetaphil, and my skin’s reacted badly to all of them. So one night, as I had particularly dry skin, I decided to put Vaseline all over my face, and by the morning my skin was absolutely perfect! Again, leggings aren’t the usual type of thing you’d see in a favourites post, but they’ve been my staple clothing all month. This hand and nail cream is so wonderful, it smells delicious and it absorbs really quickly!

9. What was your favourite song?

– STILL INTO YOU BY PARAMORE

Still-into-you-paramore-34182751-960-540

This song has been stuck in my head all month.

10. What did you buy/What were you given?

– VISTAPRINT CUSTOMISED T-SHIRT, MUG AND POSTER

Screen Shot 2013-06-02 at 10.55.21

I’ve become completely obsessed with Vistaprint, and I really love their products.
