Successful day of charity shopping

Hey guys :) So today I had a lovely afternoon with my mum, we popped into town to look round the charity shops just for something to do. It's snowy and cold here in England but it was such a nice sunny day! I ended up having a very successful day for bargains, my mum treated me to some lovely bits, most of which are very on trend! A bit of a lazy outfit today...

knitted skirt & hat - primark // top & fur stole - h&m // leather jacket - new look // shoes - office // watch - ebay

 This is my cute mum :) I love her lots! She's probably reading this so *hi mummy*

You probably haven't noticed, but today I tried out a new foundation. I got a free sample of Rimmel's new "Wake Me Up" foundation in Glamour magazine, it is ah-mazing! I have been using Mac Studio Fix Fluid for a while now but unfortunately the shade I bought is a bit too dark for me, which means I always have to blend it down my neck - this too much effort for me in the morning! I love trying out free samples and I liked this one so much that I bought the full size bottle today! Well, my mum's Boots card got me it for free - but otherwise it is on offer for £4.99 which I think is a great deal for such a good foundation.

So here's the bargains I picked up today:
As you all probably know pastels and neon are very in this season, so I was extremely happy to pick up these cute *on trend* bits. I got this beautiful neon pink and orange ombre blazer for just £2.99! We popped into River Island and I saw one that was almost identical for £40!

 I then spotted this beautiful pastel orange knitted cardigan! There were quite a few and they were all hand knitted by a granny! *How adorable*, the lady in the shop said they were selling out fast so I grabbed my two favourite.

 I got this cute white and lavender one too, they were both £2.99.
 (Sorry for the blurred photo) I found these amazing lavender jeans, the only thing I don't like is that they are low rise. I love all my bottom-wear to be high waisted but I couldn't pass these up since they were only £1.99!
 They are tight at the top but baggy enough at the bottom to be rolled up and worn "boyfriend" style, which I love!

 This sweet little dress I wasn't sure on at first, but now I love it! I can picture myself wearing it when it's a bit warmer with Docs and a cute shirt underneath. It was only £3! It's a little big but whilst deciding on whether I wanted to buy it or not, I spotted this beautiful leopard print belt amongst some junk in a basket:
 So beautiful! and it was only a pound.

I also want to show you my beaut new watch! My Tumblr dashboard is my inspiration for all things fashion, and I keep seeing these old school Casio watches pop up. I love how simple it is and I am so in love with it! It adds a small touch to an outfit and goes amazingly with my gold jewellery. I adore how it looks with my new granny cardigan!

Since I am full to the brim with curry, onion bhajis and popadums, I am having a chilled night in tonight with my boyf. Hope you're all having a fabbbb weekend!
