Purchases: London Shopping

As its coming up to London Fashion Week where I’ll be attending shows at the Fashion Scout and working on the entrances of London Fashion Week at Somerset House. I will also be working backstage at the Peter Pilotto and also on the show day too. I have been running around the week before trying to find outfits for LFW so I thought I would do a haul of the purchases even thought I only ended up buying a plain black top for LFW. I popped to some local places where I live and then went to Westfield as there’s a better range of stores there. Also I haven’t been proper shopping at all this year so I’m also looking for other items too.
I purchased a burgundy ruffle top from H&M and a Green fur coat which was also from H&M. These I didn’t end up wearing to London Fashion Week but I did but a plain black top to wear as I’m meant to wear all black.

Firstly I always pop into Primark so see what they have and is now where I buy most of my pyjamas from since La Senza stopped selling their novelty ones. The pyjamas don’t last long in Primark once you wash them.primark-haul-septemberI got these Bambi Disney bottoms I tend to find Primark has way more bottoms in store than tops as I can never find any I like or separate ones. I also picked up some frilly socks from Primark as I saw them in Topshop but they were a lot more. These will look really cute with boots in the winter.

I have been looking for a candle burner for a while now for my Yankee Candle tarts. I have seen lots I have I liked but they have always been over £5. I came across an American flag one in the 99p store and as I love America I just had to buy it plus it was only 99p. Also this month I have always been debating whether to purchase the Yankee Candle Halloween products but as it’s only one day out of the year I didn’t want to spend a lot so I was lucky to come across this pumpkin holder in Waitrose for £2.halloween-candle-accessoriesI bought the hanging black cat from a Yankee Candle store on eBay as they had sold out on line everywhere except eBay. This is really cute and I can hang it on anything but it’s meant to really hang on the side of a candle jar.

The other week I went to a department store where I live and there is only one of them in the country. I found a basket of Yankee Candles on a shelf and the tarts were 50p each and the samplers were 90p I wish I had bought more now. They also had 2 for £10 on tea lights and small jars but only on selected lines.yankee-candle-saleMy boyfriend bought me the Snowflake Cookie tart and the Lemon Lavender tart as I couldn’t find the Snowflake Cookie tart anywhere and the Lemon Lavender candle is my favourite.
I can’t wait to try the Merry Marshmallow sampler as this was also sold out online and I bought this from Debenhams. The Snowflake Cookie smells just like the icing on a cookie and the Merry Marshmallow one smells really sweet like a marshmallow I would defiantly try this to if you see them as they are perfect for Christmas.

I’m not sure why these are nearly sold out everywhere but I was in Boots in Blackfriars and thought I would try Maybelline Baby Lips as they were only £2.99 and it was 3 for 2 I went to two different Boots but one wasn’t doing 3 for 2 for some reason. maybelline-baby-lipsI bought the Cherry Me, Pink Punch and Hydrate I always carry lip balms with me as I never wear lipstick. The Cherry Me was in my September Favourites as I loved the red colour on my lips and there was no horrible taste like the other two.

What have you bought this month?
