The weather has been so nice these last couple of days but sadly I've had to spend the majority of it inside working, so to make up for it I've made a few spring purchases... 

I picked up this gold necklace from a range called True Spirit in Superdrug. I never normally wear necklaces but I've been looking for a simple one like this to make outfits look a bit more dressed up and put together. I can't find the link for it on the website but definitely go and have a look in store as there were loads of different ones to choose from. I then picked up the light pink nail varnish (photographed in the middle) for only £1, bargain of the day! I'm interested to see how good this nail varnish is, as the £1 lipsticks from MUA have an amazing formula and pigmentation. 

I've wanted to try some of the Topshop makeup range for ages. After hearing lots of good things about their cream blushers, I finally decided to pick one up. I went for the shade Head Over Heels, which is coming up as suuuper bright in the photo, awkward. In real life it is a beautiful coral shade, which will be perfect for the summer months. Annoying again, I couldn't find this on the website but the shade Flush looks really similar. I also got the pastel green nail varnish in the shade Keen, I've wanted a minty green nail varnish for a while and this one fitted the bill just right.

My final stop was in Boots, who currently have their 3for2 offer on. Now we all know that is an offer I can't refuse so before even entering the shop I knew I would be leaving with three new things. I decided to get the new Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, as this has quickly been branded the latest dupe for the famous Bioderma. My current bottle of Bioderma is just about to run out, so getting my hands on this one was obviously a lot easier, also as this one is less than half the price I'm excited to see how it will compare. Next I spotted the new L'Oreal pastel nail varnish collection (are you sensing a bit of a theme here..?) and had to get this gorgeous lilac shade which I think is called Nouvelle Vague to complete the three I just grabbed another tube of the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, which they seem to have changed the names of and the packaging slightly but I don't think it's been reformulated... Has it?

Hope you've had the chance to enjoy some of the sunshine! Have you made any recent spring purchases, or just a sucker for the Boots 3for2 like me?
