Result Of A Fabulous Weekend

Hey guys!
Sorry for my lack of posting over the weekend- for those that don't know it was my birthday last Saturday.
The weekend as a whole was great. Met with friends and had drinks Friday night, then Saturday had a really nice chilled relaxing day and my boyfriend cooked for me and made me a birthday cake :)
To add to the weekend as a whole it was also payday Friday :)
So I immediately went shopping!
I will make sure to post a birthday haul sometime this week so you can have a little nosey at what I got.
Here's a few things I picked up this week. I bought three items of clothing but rather than photo them they will probably feature in an OOTD this week or next, I will make sure I mention they are a recent purchase!
I bought these beauties in Primark. 
Above is a purple ring, a green and gold pair of earrings and a long rope gold necklace.
Id seen a very similar necklace in Topshop and was agonising whether to buy it. I'm glad in hindsight I didn't because this one is exactly the same but about £10 cheaper. Nice try Topshop..!
The earrings are really classic looking studs and I thought they'd work well in adding a little something to a plain outfit.
I just love the ring. I had been looking for a similar one over the summer and just couldn't find one anywhere.So I snapped this one up when I saw it!

I bought some bits for university. With Uni stuff it HAS to be pretty, this is so I do not doodle all over it. Pretty things have this way of taking my mind off stressful situations or deadlines so for this I went into Paperchase. One of my favourite and stationary stores...I just love their quirky designs.
Super super cute!
I bought a folder, notebook and a diary. They have a little glitter on the designs and just look adorable!

I then popped next door to Lush. 
Ill be completely honest. Ive never got the whole Lush hype thing. I have passed on many occasions and been overpowered by the smells offending my nose. Ive been in there before but never bothered buying anything.
But @LucyLouise always has lots of lush related posts so my interest was rejuvenated.
on arrival this must had shown, I think I was pulling the "lush virgin look".
A super camp salesman/shop worker arrived at my service, and bless him he talked me through everything...this included demonstrations....big up to Lush staff!
With this I chose bubble bar.
It smells amazing..! Like these little cup cake dolls I used to own as a kid,
I think I'm going to have to take a bath later in my eagerness!

Lastly I popped to Superdrug. My local town stocks:
NO Sleek.
really its pretty shocking.
Ive read lots about these brands.I even own the Sleek storm palette so I was intrigued none the less!
I purchased Sleek blush in Flamingo.
Its a beautiful vibrant pink
I am forever wearing MAC Well dressed blush because its safe and it complements my skintone
buying this blush is an attempt to up the amp for nights out. Its a truly beautiful colour.

I also bought Sleek Face Contour Kit in medium.
Its only recently Ive got into contouring but I'm really happy with this little purchase.

So that's my Friday payday pre-birthday low down.
I hope you like my purchases...going to get in the bath and try out my bubble bar now..!
Hope you've all had a good week!

Birthday haul to come soon. I have a guest post up this week-keep your eyes pealed ;)
