Hey guys! Gemma here! Over the past couple of weeks, I haven't really been able to help myself when it comes to shopping. Normally I am really good with it as well! So I thought I would share what I've picked up with you guys. Again this wasn't all in one sitting!

The first place I stumbled into was Boots. Isn't that always the way? When there I picked up the 'Models Own Speckled Eggs' Nail Polishes and the 'Real Techniques' Blush Brush.

The colour of polishes I got were 'Magpie' (Green) & 'Swan' (Purple). I was so desperate to get my hands on these as I wanted the similar Illamasqua ones that were around last year. Unfortunately those were a little out of my price range, so I was so excited when I heard these were being launched. These polishes are usually £5 each however when I got mines Boots had a 2 for £8 deal on. So really it would have been rude not to get two? I have currently got 'Magpie' on and it is so so perfect! A little post on these to come soon!

I needed a new bronzer brush to contour with  so I thought with this brushes tapered end it would be perfect. Even though it is obviously meant for blush! I have been using it everyday so far and I am absolutely loving it. Available from both Boots and Superdrug - £9.99.

Next I got this super cute dogtooth patterned dress. It is a little on the short side but oh well! Might as well when you are young right? But I think this dress will be totally perfect for both a night out and during the day in the summer! Missguided - £19.99

I am so gutted at how this photographs. Hopefully I can get a picture in it and show you all how gorgeous it really is. A little crochet cardigan which is perfect with jeans just now and will be amazing with shorts in the summer. I love items like this! Hollister - £39 

I then stumbled into good old Primark! I get so excited (sad I know!) when I get to go to Primark. Due to the shopping centre I work in not having one, I never really get to go because I always just do my shopping there. Primark always have really good summer stuff.

Even though I'm not going away anywhere this year that I'll need it, I bought this little pool cover up as I thought it was just so cute. I justified it as I intended of going away for three weeks next year so will need lots. Typical shopping logic right! This was £8.

For going to Rome I already knew I wanted a nice white summer day dress and when I seen this I knew it was the one. It is just a lovely plain white with a flower pattern on top that isn't overbearing. Meaning the dress is still pretty and simple with a little something extra. And it was only £5!!

Oh my. I just couldn't help myself when it came to this bag. I just adore holographic right now. My fave trend! I have a 21st coming up soon and got it to go with the Missguided dress just to add a little something something! £8

If you seen my wishlist post then you would have read me talking about 'Sabo Skirt'. An amazing online Australian website. I eventually bit the bullet and made an order. Not what I had posted about though!

How amazing are these shorts? Legit have not came across another item of clothing so beautiful. Milla Crochet Shorts - 58 AUD

Again this pic does the dress no justice and again hopefully I can post a picture in it soon. The only thing about this dress is that it is very elasticated at the waist so I wish I got a smaller size. Apart from that it is perfect for summer! 58 - AUD. 

The amazing thing about Sabo Skirt as international shipping is only 10 AUD. Which works out around £5.50. Which is what like a pound cheaper than TopShop? & that is that coming all the way from Australia. Crazy. 

Then speak of the devil, was TopShop.

I am a magpie to all things Orange. Not really any rhyme or reason for this top. Just thought it was very cute, very 90s chic! £12

I was desperate for a new pair of nice flat shoes as they are basically the only kind of shoe I don't have a million pairs of. Then I found these bad boys. They go with absolutely everything and are extremely comfy. Also the little horse detail is something different! £24

I also took a little trip to Office.

I love the CT Lite style of converse with the thin sole and unfortunately they are stopping this design of them which I am completely gutted about! I had been eyeing up these blue ones for months but as it was winter, I didn't feel like I would wear them much. However when I was in, I noticed that they were now in the mid season sale and surprisingly they had my size! I just had to get them. I think they would go really well with my little Hollister Cardy, a white top and some shorts in the summer! In the sale at £25. 

Again with the holographic! I actually bought these shoes before the bag and thought the bag would be perfect with these. Again if you seen my wishlist post, you would have seen how I said I wanted these shoes in Black. Oh now I am so glad I didn't get those ones as I am completely in love with these. These are the first heels I've really had that are high without a platform as that has been a really big thing over the past few years so these do take a bit of getting used to for me but apart from that I can't fault them! 'On Top' Shoes - £65

Last but not least was a trip into River Island. 

By this point, I was starting to realise how much I had spent over the past two weeks and with two 21sts, my Dad's birthday and Easter coming up, I thought it best if I took a back seat and only went in as my Mum wanted to. I was doing so well at sticking to my plan until my Mum pointed out these cute shorts. They look really itty bitty in this picture and although they are quite small, they are definitely not this bad! I am a sucker for shorts and basically just buying summer clothes in general! And these were only £6 in the sale so really I didn't do to much damage!

So that it guys! Money definitely well spent in my eyes. Let me know if you have any of the same things!

Until next time!
