A visual shopping trip!

You guys will be so proud of me today! I went to Telford shopping with my mother and spent nothing, that's right, nothing! Believe me, I wanted to buy so many things but I'm really trying to behave at the moment.

I'm going to show you four things from today that I really did like whilst out shopping, see if you like them too.

1. bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser 2. Blonde and Blonde Cable Knit Crew Jumper 3. Bank Floral Skull Print Scarf   4. River Island Pink Oriental Pink Scarf

Firstly I’m featuring a brand which I have wanted to try for a while, purely for their make-up as it looks divine; this being bareMinerals. After browsing the stand in Debenhams today I came across a skincare range, I was not aware that they did skin care products so I was very intrigued. The Purifying Facial Cleanser retails at £15 which I think is rather reasonable...if it is a good product. I would pay that much for a cleanser as I have done in the past so I would be willing to give this a try in the future. The products from bareMinerals are also cruelty free so I'm able to buy things in my head freely...I’m thinking their mineral eye shadows!

The second item I saw today is a knit jumper from Bank. Now, I have never ever shopped in Bank before as I'm quite put off by the Paul's Boutique stuff therefore I tend to avoid going in. However, I braved it and walked through the door and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as there were some great items in store; I'll be sure to go pop in for a quick browse in the future. This knit jumper comes in four different colours: cream, navy, wine and teal. I was rather torn between the wine and navy shade of which on the Bank website neither of them look as they do in store so I chose to show you the cream version. I expected this jumper to be verging on the side of £40 so I was quite shocked to find out it was only £20.

Another item from Bank was the Floral Skull scarf which I really liked. I love scarves so much as I think they can really finish off an outfit. I've been after a skull one for a while now but I've never really found one I liked. This cost just £10 and again, I expected prices to be higher, I'm impressed Bank!

Lastly, is probably my most favourite item I have seen all day. This is yet again another scarf with this one being from River Island. It features an oriental design which I adore, honestly folks, it is beautiful. I love anything oriental so this was right up my street as it were. This costs £16 which is a bit expensive but I'm going to be honest, I would of paid it if I hadn't of been being good; it is beyond beautiful! River Island do so many gorgeous things, I had a snood from there for my birthday which I felt was really unique; I feel the same about this scarf.

Has anybody else fallen in love with the River Island scarf? I sure have!

  6. I adore that jumper! Seeing as I have such a lack of winter clothing going on this will be going on my 'to buy' list :). Well done you as well on not spending anything, especially with seeing such beautiful things, like that River Island scarf.

    Love Becky xx
