Pretty Little Purchases

As you may be able to tell I've been on a bit of a shopping spree and as everything I bought seemed to have a pretty pink theme, I thought I'd make a cute little blog post out of it all and show you!

Trinket Jar Candle - The Range | Pink and White Roses - The Range
White Rose Petals - The Range | Mini Vase - Homesense

I popped into The Range with no intention of buying anything, but the wedding aisle just gets me every time as it's filled with so many cute floral girly items that just match perfectly with my bedroom. I picked up some white and pink roses which I think still look pretty decent despite being false, and I also got some white rose petals to sprinkle in the bottom of the vase to hide the plastic stems, which would probably have given my fake roses game away. I bought a mini vase for them to go in from Homesense and it's actually supposed to be a drinking glass, but I thought it was the perfect size for the flowers. I also spotted this beautiful candle that looks like a little trinket jar and I will definitely be keeping it to store bits and bobs in once I have burnt it!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company, Slanted Tweezers - Homesense

I always go to the beauty isle in Homesense/TKmaxx like a right little scavenger, keeping my eyes open for any bargains and brands that I might recognise. I found these cute baby pink tweezers from The Vintage Cosmetic Company which were only £2.99 from £8 so I couldn't resist (and the floral packaging is beaut!)

Mallow Tree, Marshmallows - Homesense

I had to have a little laugh at myself with my boyfriend once I'd got back home, because I always end up frittering my money on some of the most pointless things, for instance these white and blue fluffy cloud shaped marshmallows! I saw these marshmallows packages on the checkout aisle (aka. the danger zone) and I couldn't leave them there as they were both so adorable, so with little time left I panicked and dropped them into my basket. So pointless, but so so cute.

Just Pink, Perfume - Next - Link

Next have just upped their packaging game with their re-branding of the Just Pink perfume and it is just me all over! My favourite ever perfume is by Chloe, and you can tell that this is where they found their inspiration for the beautiful ridged bottle with gold detailing, which is complete with a pretty pink ribbon. It smells really floral and fresh and if you love Chloe then you will love this one too. Plus it's only £12 for 100ml so you can't go wrong.

Bunny Rabbit Pyjamas - Next - Link

There is something about brand new, fresh pyjamas that I just love, it gives me the same feeling of getting into a freshly made bed and you just feel so cosy and clean. I spotted this pyjama shorts set with little bunnies dotted all over them and my heart just melted. I swear I am actually 22 and not 5 years old! They were only £14 too, which I thought was a really good price for Next.

Floppy Hat with Cut Out Hearts - Asos | Pink City Bag - Asos

I've seen these floppy hats around for a little while and thought they looked amazing on everyone but would probably be something I could never pull off. However I spotted this one on Asos that had little cut out hearts around the rim and decided to take the plunge (even if I only dare to wear it when I'm on holiday!) I decorated it myself with a pink silky ribbon, but I've just recently bought a tiny white flower garland that I'm going to replace it with.

I also bought this lovely pink bag from Asos which is exactly what I was looking for. It's not too small that you can't cram all your junk in it (how do men fit all their things into their pockets btw?!) but also not too big that it makes your arm ache, but even so it also comes with an adjustable strap so you can carry it on your shoulder instead if you want to. It cost me around £25 which I think is a total bargain and I'm so so happy with the quality and colour of it!

Creme Cup Lipstick - Mac

It's tough going into town and trying to avoid the Mac store! I was in need of a new Creme Cup lipstick and my boyfriend treated me to my third tube of it (along with a back-up of my Prep + Prime Highlighter and a new 217 brush). It's the prettiest, milky pink shade that look so wearable and lovely on everyone.

What do you think of my purchases?

xoxo
