Lucy does not like sales! (HAUL)

Hola!

I'm on a bit of a blogging roll tonight! There's so many bits I want to chat about and show you all!

Thought I might show you a few things I bought when in town on Christmas Eve and yesterday. I didn't brave the sales on Boxing Day because there was nothing I was desperate to get and I normally panic and grab hideous clothes just because they're 80% off or something, so instead I went in for a little look yesterday (although it was still so busy). Also, the Topshop sale started on Christmas Eve instead of Boxing Day so I went in then to have a little look. It was so quiet and tidy and there was so much there; I'd definitely recommend heading in before Christmas next year (although I'm not sure if this is the case in all stores).

Right, so from Topshop, I got these bits:

Original price: £38, down to £20
I love chunky knits this winter and really loved the neck on this especially.
I really like wearing it with dark red chinos and glittery gold pumps,
as it's so simple and comfy.
 For £18 (I got student discount) I'm really happy with it!

Original price: £36, down to £15
I really love the colour of this top and the sleeves
(apologies that the sleeves aren't shown very well here)
I think the cut out detail is interesting and it'd look great with
leather-look leggings and wedge shoe boots when I'm going out
but don't want to completely freeze!
For £13.50 I think it's so good!
After Topshop I had a quick look in Select. I really find Select to be a bit hit and miss: sometimes they have some really nice pieces that look a lot more expensive than they actually are, as well as being on trend; other times I am really not a fan!

Original price: £14, down to £7
I have been wanting this shirt for SO LONG,
but I could never find it in store and they didn't have it in my size online,
 so I was so happy to finally find it in the sale for half price!
 I absolutely love the studs/gems and the dropped hem at the back.
It's such a lovely length and I can't wait to wear it!
Those are the only things I found in the sales. Not much, although admittedly, I didn't look too hard or for very long! Did anyone have more patience than me and get any real bargains? Can you recommend some good sales I should have a look at?

Whilst shopping, I also bought a few pieces of make up, which were sadly not reduced:

I was trawling the GOSH counter in Superdrug and came across this brilliant brow pen for £5.99. I've been looking for a brow pen that suits my colouring for a while now; I always find them to either be too ashy, too red, or too dark. That's why I was drawn to this product. I've found that it stays on for so long (as the name suggests!) and the nib makes it so easy to apply in order to keep it looking natural. I chose the shade 004 (Wheat) and there's a swatch below. I really do love this product!


I also couldn't resist another Topshop Blush (£6.00)! This time I went for a creme blush is Neon Rose (link!). I love coral shades and this is such a brightening colour. I'm really into keeping my skin dewy at the moment so creamy formulas like this are brilliant for me. I haven't found a brush I love applying it with yet though, so I was hoping you'd have some suggestions?




Here are some swatches of the two products - apologies for the awful photo and my pale arm!


Please let me know if you found any bargains! I'd love to hear what you all found!

Lots of love,
Lucy xxx
