I’ve been out shopping a lot recently with my Mum and my mate Roz so I thought I would do a blog post on everything I’ve purchased.
I’ll start with the beauty products from Primark, I didn’t realise how much stuff they had in there but oh my it’s a lot! I bought a pretty big beauty organiser for only £4 which was a huge bargain as a lot of other places were selling them for around a tenner for ones which were the same size. I’ll probably upload a photo to my instagram once I have filled it! The other things I bought were a two pack of blender sponges (£1.50) and a two pack of silicone sponges (£2). I’ll be testing them both out and deciding on which is better- the normal sponge or the silicone.
From a store called Hema I purchased some glitter tape, I think it was £3 and some gift garland (not sure how much I paid for this). My auntie recently bought me an engagement/wedding scrapbook which I started recently and I thought these were perfect to decorate inside! Going to make a new blog series about it I think 🙂 The ribbon is also for my scrapbook and it was around £1.50 from Dunelm.
Lastly from WHSmith, I got a Pukka Pad project book (about £5/6) and a new academic dairy (£8.99). The notepad came with five dividers with pockets so you can place notes in them. Even though I don’t go back to uni for another month, I thought this would be perfect as I really want to minimise what I carry with me to campus every day so having everything in one notepad would be amazing. You can also tear out the pages and store them into a ring binder once it’s full or as you are going along.
I had already purchased an A5 diary from paperchase but decided it was too small. Unfortunately, I had already written in it so I couldn’t return it. This academic diary is perfect as it’s quite thin and comes with ribbon bookmark so you can easily go to which week you are on. It includes two pages where you can write in your timetable which is ideal for the two semesters of lectures at university. Each week is spread over two pages with a little notes section which is what I really wanted as I tend to write a to do list there.
I apologise for the bad quality photos, the lighting was so rubbish! I hope you enjoyed though, thanks for reading 🙂
