Small Haul - Lush, Superdrug and Selfridges

I wanted to share with you a few things I bought while we were in Manchester at the weekend. There are a few other things but they are peoples presents so I don't want to include them just in case anyone sees! This weekend wasn't really about buying things though, since George has started work it feels like we hardly get any time together and when we do it goes so fast! We just wanted to spend some proper time together enjoying ourselves, feeling festive and it turned out to be the best weekend ever, I really don't think anything will be able to top it for a long time, I feel emotional when I think that it is almost week since we were there and got engaged! It sounds stupid but its unreal at how fast it went. I wish I could just relive it. 
Lush, Selfridges, Barry M, Primark
On to what I bought, I finally finished my bottle of Nails Inc black nail polish so I was desperate for some more. I know black isn't the most exciting colour but its one that I think always looks good and I do have it on either my fingers or toes every few weeks. I have a few Barry M nail polishes and I have always liked them and as they were on 3 for 2 I thought I would pick up a few of theirs. Aswell as the black, which is actually called 'Espresso', I also got 'Mustard' and 'Coconut'. I have the mustard shade on my nails right now and I love it! It is perfect for winter and I really wanted to try the Coconut shade as I had seen so many people with it on recently and it looks great. 

The Lindt Bear set was from Selfridges and we also got something else from Lindt which was quite similar, they are both presents for people even though George absolutely loves Lindt! I think its so cute and it was about £5 which I think isn't too bad. Also in Selfridges, I got a personalised Nutella Jar! I had seen on somebody's YouTube video a while ago that Selfridges did this but I wasn't sure if they would in the Manchester one, just because that would be typical when I wanted one! But they did! It was cheaper than I expected too, it was £3.99 which I thought was good as I was expecting them to be well over a fiver. We also got a few others made too again for presents, who doesn't love Nutella?

Obviously I had to go into Lush, it is one of my favourite shops anyway but around Christmas time it only gets better! I love the Christmas range, there were so many things to choose from, it was so difficult! I did get a bit stressed out as it was so busy and I don't do very well in crowded places but I still managed to pick up a few bits. I bought the Butterbear which just looks adorable, I don't want to use it because its so cute! I also got the Christmas Hedgehog which again is so cute. I had my eye on both of these as soon as the Christmas products were out so I was very glad to pick those up. Aswell as these two I also got the Blackberry Bath Bomb. This wasn't a Christmas one but it smelt amazing! It wasn't one I had tried before but now it is one of my favourites. I used it in the bath in the hotel and it was the most relaxing bath and so colourful! 

On the Sunday we went round the city on the way to the station and I popped into Primark as I was looking for some Christmas bedding. I didn't end up getting any but I did find a few things. Not exactly exciting but we have been needing a new laundry bin for our new place. I thought this was just really pretty and will do until we can get a really nice wooden one or something a bit better. I also picked up a few candles as the little jar ones from Primark are so nice and they are now only 80p! They actually had loads to choose from so it took me a while! I got the Blackcurrant and Orchid and the Sweet Pineapple and Ginger which is my absolute favourite! 

I don't even know how I managed to make this such a long blog post when I didn't even buy much! I just had the best time and want to share it all on here, even if people aren't interested it will be good for me to have it all down and look back on one day!

Have you visited Manchester at Christmas?
