Last weekend I took a trip up to Manchester to visit my older sister at university. During my visit we managed to squeeze in some shopping so I thought I would share with you what I got.
First of all I picked up this simple black skater dress which is an essential in my wardrobe. I love these dresses because they are simple and easy to style. I previously bought one in Topshop for £20 but I felt it was time to replace it and this was a bargain at just £9.75. It is also available in red and royal blue and can be found HERE.
Also in Forever 21 I bought another essential; a black skater skirt.This was also a bargain at just £4.75. I will definitely picking up some more in the near future. This skirt is also available in blue, pink and grey. It can be found HERE.
I purchased a vest/tank top for just £4 which is shown in the picture above. I think this top is going to be perfect for moving into summer months with its classic daisy print. The only downside to this top is that it is slightly see-through so you have to wear a vest top underneath but I still love it.
I picked up this gorgeous necklace for just £3! It is a triangle/arrow shaped necklace with a pale pink base and smaller gold triangles layered on top.
I came across these 'hairdresser' style clips which will be great to use when I am styling my hair to section parts off. This set of 8 was just £1.50 and you get a variety of black and white ones.
As I was queuing I spotted these super cute false nails for £1.There are 24 nails in this set and it comes with adhesive. They are a mixture of baby blue nails with pink hearts and owls on them. I don't really wear false nails but these were too cute to leave behind and at just £1 how could you go wrong?
As there is not a Home Sense store near to where I live, I was desperate to go there. The first thing I spotted was this box with colourful Dachshund's (sausage dogs) all over it. Anyone who knows me knows my obsession with sausage dogs so I could not let this opportunity pass. The box fits A4 sized paper into it and was just £3.99.
Also in Home Sense I picked up these 2 funky notebooks which came in a set for £3.99. They are both lined and will be really useful for anything - writing lists, blog post ideas etc.
As my beloved Bioderma is nearly running out I needed to buy a new makeup remover. As Bioderma in the UK is about £15-£20 I thought I would try this one by L'Oreal. I picked this up in Boots for just £3.32 although it usually retails at £4.99. I am yet to try this but I hope it lives up to its name. This bottle contains 200ml of product and you can buy it HERE.
So that concludes my Machester Haul. I had a really great weekend and I hope to visit again soon. Have you ever been to Machester? Are there any places you recommend to visit?
