Haul: Super Girlie Spending Spree In York

So yesterday I had all intention of popping into York today and having a few pictures taken in and amongst some of the lovely old quirky buildings. Unfortunately this morning I woke up absolutely full of cold! Honestly somebody around me could just sneeze, and i'd get poorly! So annoying!

Of course I still went - I don't want to miss out on a shopping trip - but i decided to give the whole taking photos of a snotty sniffely face a miss! So instead I'm showing you what I've bought... As you can see, theres a whole load of pink going on here! I didn't realise when I was buying, but now it's all on the table there's a total pink overload! Ridiculously girlie!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!...

*Ark - Hearts and Bows floral dress - £15.00
As soon as I tried this on I knew I loved it - If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know I gave up shopping for lent, I've clearly failed - ha - but three weeks without buying clothes is pretty good right! The print on this is lovely, the flowers are perfectly proportioned and the peter pan collar is just the cutest! Also i found this on the sale rail, down from £26.99 to £15.00 which I thought was brilliant (worth breaking lent for ha).

*New Look - Pastel pink top - £7.99
I can see this white wash effect pastel pink top going to be one of my staple pieces. I'm very in to pastels at the moment & I know i'll wear this loads. It's a very casual top with rolled up short sleeves - Perfect for the warmer weather when cardi's aren't needed.

*New Look - Floral Headband - £3.99
I bought this just out of cuteness! Wearing these headbands instantly gives a summery festival vibe so roll on summer! Can't wait to wear this.

*Boots - Benefit Brow Zing £23.50
For absolutely ages I've seen girls absolutely loving this Benefit product & yet for some strange reason I haven't tried it yet. I actually had my brows done in store and I'm sooo glad I did, even though I'm quite dark brunette the medium colour (which i was about to buy) would have been way too dark so instead opted for the light. Even though the light colour was for blonde/ashy tones it was just the right shade for my brow colour & complexion.

*Boots - Maybeline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation - £7.99
I've been using this for years! It's my go to foundation and I needed a top up! I was tempted to buy a mac foundation but comparing the prices, for me it was a no brainer to stick with what i know!... Any reviews on mac foundation would be greatly appreciated. 

*Topshop - Pastel Pink Pumps - £20.00
Now there's a tongue twister!.. I love how casual & girlie these are - I can imagine wearing them in summer with pretty dresses & also skater girling it up with some boyfriend jeans and vest tops. When I got to the till in Topshop the very lovely shop assistant mentioned they did have them in black, but they've been selling like hot cakes, and the pastel pink ones were going the same way, so I'm glad I got them when I did!

*The Yorkshire Soap Company Bath Bomb - £2.50
I've never heard of this shop before but walking past the smell was absolutely divine so we had to have a look in - The shop was completely magical! It's amazing. They have these lovely little soaps set out like cupcakes & larger versions set up as tiered cakes. Just stunning! Definitely worth a smell/look!

*The Yorkshire Soap Company Liquorice Soap - £3.00
We were in this shop for absolutely ages smelling all the different bits and pieces. In the end I opted for liquorice, it took me straight back to buying blackjacks on the way to school, it smells so sweet & lovely, and its a smell both me and my boyfriend can get a way with using so that went down well :-)

Hope you like all my purchases - I'm very pleased with my haul today!

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of Love.
