Out 'n' about in Manchester + spending all my pennies!



Last Tuesday we took a little trip on the train to Manchester! It was good to have a day out there again as we hadn't been for over a year! 
Luckily the sun was kind and popped it's head out for the day making it all the more enjoyable (though I wasn't exactly dressed for that much heat!)

My first stop (dragging Michael in tow) was to Zara to have a look at the bag that everyone except me and my cats own. Unfortunately.. I didn't love it, the strap was too thin to lug all my junk about without breaking my shoulder.. plus I felt the material had the strangest texture. After that fiasco we spent most of the afternoon wandering from shop to shop having a look around, or in my case fawning over Nars in Selfridges and Bliss in Debenhams... 
We spent the LONGEST time in Topman, honestly I didn't know it took so long to buy jeans! and then I finally made my first purchase of the day in Lush with a lip scrub (The most delicious edible lip scrub I've ever tasted). Lunch/Tea at Nando's, Lemon & Herb chicken for me and a burger for Mikey. It was his first time at Nando's and I think he thought it was a bit odd! 
Finally a trip to Boots came next where I died of happiness at the Origins 'corner' and got my paws on their Out of Trouble face mask that smells like vicks vapor rub! I also got the Real Techniques core collection after all the hype, damn peer pressure.
A quick trip to Primark for some bargain £5 shorts and to New Look too then it was time for the train home!

A quick snap of my goodies as well as a few other bits (Sandals from ASOS that I've sent back) Black batwing 'Meow' top off of ebay and finally my ombre jeans from Topshop! (I had a 20% off code so Michael treated me! bless his little cotton socks!)

All in all a good few days for craving my spending needs, however as is usual, I have a list already made of things I'd love to purchase, thanks blogging world for your terrible influence!!

  1. This sounds like a great day out, very jealous of all your purchases, especially the jeans! I'm in the market for some make up brushes but I have no idea what I'm looking for! xxx
