H&M, Primark & Superdrug Haul...

On Saturday me and George went to Meadowhall for a meal and a little bit of shopping which was really nice. It feels good to actually be able to buy things now! As we are going to Manchester in a few weeks, we didn't get too much but I wanted to show you what we did buy!

I really wanted to get some pumps for Manchester as at the moment all I really have is sandals! A lot of our stuff is buried in bags and boxes in the spare room, it is impossible to find things, so I have just been wearing what I travelled back in. I did manage to find my pair of fake ugg boots but I don't want to wear them all the time, especially as the weather is so hit and miss at the minute. The boots aren't practical for when it is warm and the sandals aren't practical for cold weather. I needed something appropriate for both. I bought these cute red pumps from Primark for just £4. They felt so comfortable when I tried them on so I am hoping that they will be when we are walking all weekend! I think this colour is perfect for Autumn/Winter and it goes with most things I would wear. I also bought a scarf to match. I really don't have many scarves but I think they look so good with just a simple outfit of jeans and a t-shirt. I think this will be great for winter. This was £4 too. The last thing I got from Primark was this little Christmas candle. The scent is Winter Berry and it just smells so good! It was only 80p as well which is such a bargain. I wish they had more as it is such a great price. I bought the shoes and the scarf to go with a new jacket/cardigan I bought from H&M. I have really tried to take a good picture of it but it just isn't happening, I've looked online too and I can't find it anywhere. As soon as I do I will include it in this post. It is so soft and comfy, I really wanted something that was great for this time of year as at the minute it isn't cold enough for big coats! It was £30 which I really wouldn't normally want to spend but I know it will go so well with so many of my clothes and it is something that will literally last me ages, I could wear it during any time of the year. 
I also went to Superdrug on Saturday and spent quite a bit more than I normally would!
The first thing I needed was some sort of primer/concealer for my skin. I suffer quite bad with redness, I don't know why, even when I am not having a particularly bad time with my skin spotswise, it just looks a bit red and sore. It feels fine but I really don't like how it looks, I do manage to cover it well with make-up and I wouldn't say it is that obvious without, to me it is something I worry about though. I really didn't know what sort of product I was looking for but then I spotted this MUA Pro-base Prime and Conceal Palette. This is new in and only £4 so I thought I would give this a try. I know there are more expensive high end products that help with redness but at the minute I don't think it is bad enough to spend so much money on. If this doesn't work and I am still a bit self conscious about it, I might purchase something that costs a little more in the future. Superdrug were doing 3 for 2 on cosmetics so I bought a few other things I had been wanting a while. I had been looking for an eye-shadow palette and had heard good things about this Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Romantic Smoked for £4 and I also spotted this Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in Touch of Mauve. It is the prettiest colour, it looks so good on. I also got some Tanya Burr Lashes - Bambi Eyes. I don't wear false lashes, in fact the last time was my prom and I really struggled with them then which was a few years ago, so I have kind of avoided them since! These just look so pretty and girly and from Tanyas video they are extremely easy to apply so I am going to give them a go at some point! The last things I bought were the V05 Plump it up Shampoo and Conditioner. They were both on offer for under £2 each which I thought was really good. I like to change it up a little bit with my shampoo and conditioner and haven't done for a while so thought I would give these a go. Over the last few days my hair has felt really thin, which is unusual as mine is normally so so thick and these two products are supposed to give your hair a bit of bounce and volume so hopefully they will work!
