The Retail Therapy Haul

Hi Guys,

I went on a bit of a splurge, why is it that everything goes on sale or all the new releases launch, all in the one go!  Plus it's always at this time of year, when all the Christmas bits are being brought out as well. But it almost makes it the last splurge before Christmas...
I feel quite pleased with myself as I managed to spread it out over a few weeks, so its not quite as hard of a hit... Anyone else do this, or just me? It makes purchases so much more justifiable! Topshop and Oliver Bonas both have some fantastic bits in their sales, which I definitely recommend having a look at, Im trying so hard not to have a second peek!
For once in my life I've actually managed to go shopping and only buy one makeup item, which is very un heard of from me. Even then trying to bring myself to actually use the Sugarpill Edward Scissorhands Palette is killing me. It's limited edition, though Sugarpill is getting more stock soon! But it is just so pretty, its one of those ones that I feel is more of a "makeup collectors item" if that even exists! 

I also grabbed the Dirty Deal Showder from Lush, which is a collaboration to raise money for the groups fighting against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. They've collaborated with the one and only Vivienne Westwood to create the packaging and as she's such a campaigner herself. It smells very florally and includes rose, so you can smell great and do that bit extra to help too!

I also had to order the new album from Hurts Surrender, which if you've seen my past Monthly Favourites, you'll know I'm a tad obsessed right now. To the point where I posted the CD on Instagram and Theo Hutchcraft the lead singer liked it. I'm not going to lie, I had a bit of a fan girl moment. 

Lastly I made a teeny weeny order from the Oliver Bonas sale, which has quite a few copper pieces in it. So of course I was sold at copper, I grabbed the small Mirrored Copper Tray. Which I have sadly noticed as I took the pictures, is damaged, so back to Oliver Bonas I go, this could be dangerous! I also really loved the Mint Ombre Mini Notebook, just because its quite nice to look at... I know I shouldn't be allowed shopping! 
From Topshop I got a couple of dresses, one in the sale. I didn't realise I must have a thing for florals until I took the picture! I got the Black Rose Shadow Print Maxi Dress in the sale, which is possibly my favourite practical purchase. Ive been trying to get it ever since it came out in July, but it was constantly sold out! I also thought I would try the Autumnal Side Tie Dress, its not really a style I would go for, but I loved the little lace up cut outs on the sides. Plus as its a midi dress, It's long enough for me to wear without it being a Tall dress, win win! I've also just spotted its in the sale, great for everyone else, but typical after I just bought it full price! 
Finally I made a couple of not so serious purchases, but they're pyjamas so I don't really care too much. Yes I bought a Minion Onesie, I do love the Minions and I just couldn't leave it behind in Primark.  At least if I don't have time to get ready for halloween, I can just put this on and go as a Minion. 

Also from Primark I picked up these Home Alone Christmas Pyjamas, I nearly left the bottoms as I didn't realise they were home alone too. Until a friend pointed out they had the little houses and Kevin!! written all over them. I knew I wasn't leaving without that top though, as Home Alone has been a family favourite for years! Including that quote being one of the most memorable parts.
