Afternoon ladies & gents!
I’m back, well.. sort of. I’ve had a HUGE break away from blogging as you may have realised, there has been a hell of a lot going on lately. We’ve recently moved homes from Manchester to Wales, so of course with that comes a new job etc, unfortunately blogging has had to take a back seat.
So here goes, I thought a wintery kind of post would be perfect for my first post back as it is starting to get to those colder months. The perfect time of year in my opinion, I absolutely love my knitted jumpers, cosy movie nights with the room filled with spicy smelling candles & hot chocolates. I recently took a trip to town to pick up a couple of essentials to help me survive these colder months and thought I would share them with your lovely selves.
I headed over to H&M firstly and picked up a lovely thin high neck knitted jumper (£14.99), I instantly fell in love with this. If you know me personally then you will know I have a love for grey things, so of course this would be in my basket. What I love about this jumper is it’s thin but yet still keeps me really warm so i’m not sweating buckets whilst walking around. I also picked up a long chunky knit cardigan (£14.99) which is a lovely blend of white and black wool, it comes down to my knees which in my opinion it’s a must for those who like comfortable clothing. I think I might have to go back and grab the dark grey & black version.
I also headed over to Boots, because you just have to right!? I can’t seem to help myself when I go into there. I just want everything *wishes money grew on trees*. I headed over to the Sleek makeup section as I’ve been seeing their matte lipsticks around so I thought I’d test them out. I really liked the selection of colours but felt a little indecisive of which full sized version to purchase. I ended up having a little nosey at their Christmas gift selection and there was a 3ml 4 piece The Magic Word mini matte me liquid lipsticks set (£5.00). It had a variety of minis which was absolutely perfect and just £5, bargain! Can’t really complain at that!? So that definitely found its way into my basket. As mentioned they are 3ml each and come in Birthday Suit, Velvet Slipper, Rioja Red And Old Hollywood. I headed back over to their makeup section because they didn’t have one of the colours I liked in the minis and grabbed Vino Tinto in the full size (£4.99).
I lastly grabbed another jumper from Primark, they’ve got a really nice selection of knitted jumpers this year in stunning autumn colours, which I really cannot resist! I’ve already complied a list of what’s next to buy. It’s just a simple burgundy high necked jumper which I think was £12, it’s super soft and quite thin but it keeps me nice and toasty and the same time. I also grabbed a new scarf (£5), I absolutely love scarves and grey things like I mentioned so it was a must have! It’s really soft and quite wide so you can really wrap it round you and make you feel super cosy.
Lastly I wandered over to Superdrug and grabbed a couple of other items which were pretty much essentials. I grabbed MUA Eye Define Felt Liner (£2), Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing Water (£4.99) and Leafy and Lovely hand cream (£3).
Do you have anything on your winter wish list?
