My Recent Fashion and Beauty Purchases

Hi guys, today I thought that I would show you some bits and pieces that I have bought over the past month or so. I am on a slight spending ban right now, so all of the items (except one) that featured in this post are extremely purse-friendly - which is great news if any of you end up wanting to buy them too! You will also see quite a repetitive theme throughout the items too as I love patterns, especially anything floral. So, let's delve straight in and see what I've purchased.

Daisy Crop Top from H&M - £5.99
I absolutely adore this top! For ages now I have wanted a top with a daisy pattern on it and have seen plenty around, though I have refrained from buying them. They have lots of these tops on Forever 21, however their sizes do not fit me too well usually. I am so glad I found this little beauty in H&M as their sizing is perfect on me and for just £5.99, you really can't go wrong. I haven't seen any other patterns of this top just quite yet but if they release some, I will most definitely be snapping them up!

Dress from Primark - £5.00
Just this morning, my Mum popped into our local Primark and bought me back this dress as a little treat. I love bodycon style dresses as they suit my petite frame and do not overwhelm me too much. I think that this item is really versatile; I could wear it now with tights and ankle boots, or bare-legged with sandals as we transition into summer. The pinky/red colour is really lovely and I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this dress.

I bought these two nail polishes in Boots kind of impulsively on my way to the till but for £1.99 each, I just couldn't resist. 'Frenzy' is my favourite out of the two for obvious reasons - I just love glitter! The blue, purple and silver flecks of glitter create a lovely combination on the nails. On the other hand, 'Winterberry' is a lot more of a neutral colour which is pretty unusual for me. Despite it looking kind of horrible in the bottle, on the nail it is a slightly shimmery grey colour with mauve undertones. A perfect every day colour to go with any outfit whatsoever! 

I won't go into too much detail about this lip crayon as I am going to be featuring it in my monthly favourites, however, I couldn't wait any longer to mention it. I'm sure everybody and their mother has seen a review on this product by now but it's not surprising when it's this good. 'Standout' is a lovely red colour which is extremely flattering. Being a matte balm, you would expect it to be quite drying on the lips but to my surprise, it really isn't. This is without a doubt my go to lip product right now!

Floral Pyjamas from Primark - (top £3.50 and bottoms £6.00)
This pyjama set is the second half of the treat my Mum bought me earlier on today. I am a sucker for floral patterns and these pyjamas are super cute, I already can't wait to wear them tonight! I think we can all tell what colour Primark is loving at the moment by the dress above too! The top has some hidden support to keep everything in place and the bottoms are a slouchy leg fit. I love the lace detailing as it is really feminine.

I hope you all enjoyed reading about what I have bought over the past month or so. Please let me know what you think of the items, I love them. Plus, they're all cheap as chips! What bargains have you purchased recently? I'd love to know! Thank you :)
