Weekend Haul

I thought I'd share with you a little haul of things I've purchased over the week. I was in desperate need of a pair of blue jeans but am in the middle of trying to get more fit and lose weight so don't want to spend money on an expensive pair when they might not fit properly in a few weeks. Forever 21 was first on my list to find a cheap pair and cheap they were....£8.75! Now I know they're not the best pair of jeans in the world but they definitely do the job for now. While on the hunt for the jeans I couldn't resist popping in to a few other shops, Accessorize being one of them when I was drawn in to their display of Winter scarves. But with Accessorize comes Monsoon and while I never normally find anything in there, I came across this little box jumper with cute bobble detail in a gorgeous mink colour and I couldn't resist! I think it will look great as a weekend outfit during the cold months, worn with jeans and some boots or even UGGs on a more casual, cosy day.

Spot the cute little wooden heart decoration. I'm in the process of redecorating my room at the moment, basing it on simplistic whites and greys and using natural wooden accessories and different textures to decorate. I found this little heart decoration in a local boutique and quickly snapped it up, now I just have to find a place for it!

I needed a new mascara and headed to Boots to grab a trusty favourite that I've recently rediscovered - L'Oréal's Falsh Lash Telescopic (blog post to follow soon!) - and unable to resist the 3-for-2 offer on for Christmas, I also left with two Essie polishes. I went with 'It's Genius', a plumy colour with gold glitter and 'Miss Fancy Pants' from their new Fall Collection which is a greige, perfect for a polished neutral manicure.

Finally is Lauren Conrad's new book, Beauty. After the success of her first fashion advice book, Style, she has now published one focusing on all her tips and tricks for hair and makeup. I am a self-confessed avid reader of The Beauty Department and absolutely adore Lauren's natural look, so after pre-ordering it, it finally arrived this week. It's as amazing as I expected, full of how-to's and great advice for all areas of beauty, and gorgeous photos of Lauren herself. Truly the holy-grail of beauty for me!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
