I promise this will be the last post that I mention London (for a while)! As I live quite far away going down to London is still so exciting for me and it often means treating myself to a few new bits. After last time trying and failing to find the H&M home I knew that was on my top priorities to do, as well as hitting up Forever 21 again as I found so many good bits last time. Last time I was in London I also discovered Pull and Bear which I paid another visit to this time. I found 2 t-shirts, one navy and white striped (typical me) and one white with a print on the front. Both of these were £9.99 and are super comfy. More fashion purchases came from Forever 21, which I really really have grown fond for. I got a grey symmetric top which will be great paired with leggings for the cooler months as well as a striped (surprise surprise) three quarter length sleeve grey and black top. I'm slowly trying to get a more mature looking wardrobe (as being 5ft2 and having a baby face means I forever look 15). I could have bought so much in the sleepwear section but I managed to restrict myself to this adorable zebra nightdress for £10, and the zebras on it are raving about stripes. How very me!! My final purchases from Forever 21 were this cute triangle necklace and a pack of two rings with little diamond circles on the end. 

After trawling Oxford Street for ages last time trying to find the H&M Home we luckily stumbled upon it quite easily this time round. I couldn't resist buying the blogger staple marble dish, which although I do plan to use in some photos is currently home to my Barry M nail polish collection. So chic. I managed to grab this cushion cover for a bargainous price of £3 which I can't wait to have in my room at uni in the coming September. Somehow I also ended up with this cute tea light holder, which although was not essential I'm hoping it will give off a nice shadow once it had a candle inside. From Urban Outfitters I found the diary I've been lusting after for ages - it's the Five Year Diary and as over the next five years I'll be graduating and hopefully moving out I thought it would be nice to follow my life as it changes. 

I did treat myself to quite a few makeup bits, which I had planned to do all along. On my last trip to London I picked up one of the KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks which I was so blown away by I knew I had to grab some more. This time I picked up the shades 25 and 39, a light champagne and a deep chocolate brown. KIKO was also having a sale so I nabbed one of their Glassy Lipgloss in shade 03 which is a lovely coral shimmery colour. Since getting into doing my eyebrows in a more bold fashion now I thought it was about time I owned the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil. I picked up the shade Hot Chocolate which is perfect for that more defined brow look. The final makeup items I bought were from MAC, and I was very excited to finish off my palette which I've been building for the longest time. The colours I chose were Woodwinked, All That Glitters and Quarry. I'll be doing a post with all of the eyeshadows in my palette soon! I'm so happy with all the bits I picked up and I can't wait to use the / wear them.
