So you may know if you already read my blog a lot that I have been saving and looking forward to this shopping trip forever. I went with a friend and I had an amazing time, I decided to take some pictures whilst we were there and then a haul at the end, double whammy!
let's just say my bank account was crying after this...
 Just some images now from the day...

Shoes, shoes and more shoes.

At this point I was deciding whether to buy these or not...

American style slush-puppies.

Such a healthy lunch!

Guess where I went?!
 Now onto the main attraction, the haul.

 Frilly socks are everywhere so I thought I'd join in, unfortunately this primark didn't have the best of selection of colours but black and white are basic colours and will go with everything!
 These sunglasses I fell in love with, they were only £2.50 and as soon as I saw them I had to get them. They have this vintage-retro feel.Yesterday was so sunny (for once) so I took full opportunity of that and wore them all day long. They're also great because some sunglasses really change the colours of everything, for example either really washes them out or brightens and these are just lovely and barley change the colour of your surroundings, but still protects your eyes. Don't know whether that made any sense or not!

 Looking back on this necklace, not quite sure why I brought it but I quite like it. I don't really know what it is, its a hand but I don't know whether it's meant to resemble anything! For £2.00 I just thought it would add a bit of a twist on a plain outfit!

 When I saw these bad boys I think apart of me died a little inside, they're beautiful. I don't actually own any converse's, and can never be bothered to pay for them. So when I saw these I just had to get them. The colour selection was really good, apart from those dodgy colours and prints which of course buying these from primark they were bound to have. I really fell in love with a mint green pair, but persuaded my friend to get them and as we're the same size we can swap! They're going to look super cute in the summer with shorts, and skater skirts and in fact i think I'm going to wear them today!

 I have never really thought much of primark makeup brushes, but I overheard someone saying how much they loved them and that they were her favourites. So me being me, I picked up 2. I must say am slightly disappointed with the bronzing brush, it flakes so much and they hairs fall out so easily. I may do a proper review on them!

 This is one of my favourite purchases. I am obsessed with Disney and when I saw this I literally ran (embarrassing, I know) to it. Unfortunately they didn't have my size but I had to get it so I went a few sizes up. When I tried it on it looks quite nice and it's over sized and slouchy! If you own disco pants, this would look incredible. If not, I wear this with some high-waisted topshop thick leggings, and skater skits, oh and shorts would look cute with this. I think we call all just agree this is perfection in a top.

 I had actually put this top back, but decided to pick it back up because I just think it fits in with the whole monochrome theme, and is really cute. It also reminds me of the whole collection which topshop did with all the wording and prints. It was something crazy like £4-£6 and I just thought why not!? I wore this last night for a meal with some high-waisted trousers and my hair up in a bun, and it looked quite 'sophisticated' if I do say so myself!

I did it. I got something from mac. I was/am so happy with this. First of all the lady's in mac (the shop, not the counter) were so helpful and lovely, sometimes being young and asking for makeup or help they can sometimes look down on you. But the girls in mac were so helpful, I got my whole makeup done for free and all I asked for was to get my skin matched! I really wanted to get the foundation that they used on me, which I think was something like 'fix fluid', I have it on a piece of paper somewhere. But me being me wanted to see whether my sensitive skin would react, so I went for lunch and did a bit more retail therapy then headed back to mac. When I eventually got back to mac I looked in the huge mirror and saw no oils and my face was matt. A huge shock for me considering my skins is super oily, I went to the till and immediately asked for the foundation and unfortunately didn't have my shade (which is NW13!), they had just ran out. I was so upset, so to make myself happy again, I had to buy something. This was the powder that she used on me and I love it. I am going to do a full review on it at some point when I've worked with it a bit more.
I got the shade medium and its a perfect match. Well done mac, great customer service. Of course I'll be back!

Overall I had a great shopping trip, I must say all the things apart from mac were from primark! I hope you've enjoyed this haul, it's taken me forever! Follow, comment and all that jazz. I'm aiming for 40-50 followers, please?!
