Haul Post ~ New Look & Boots.

I went for a little Easter shopping spree, taking advantage of Boots' current 3 for 2 and also a voucher I had for New Look for 20% off  - this student rarely buys things for their full price.

New Look 

I know what you're thinking: that's a lot of black. I've been in a black gothicky mood lately so this is just fuel for the flame. I'd been eyeing that maxi skirt up for absolutely ages and pretty much tried it on every time I went into New Look, the only reason I didn't buy it before was because I had just bought two other maxi skirts (and here) from New Look and I felt like I shouldn't buy something so similar so soon after. Either way, I buckled and here it is in all it's floaty, chiffony goodness.
The skull jumper is another one of those things I'd been staring at longingly and then when it finally came to buying it I spent literally about half an hour deciding between two size (I went for 16, I like a nice, baggy fit for my jumpers). Now I've got it I wear it constantly.
Then I bought a boring shoestring vest to go under my new chiffon shirt. I'd been looking for something with a collar and this seemed to fit the bill. Surprisingly with this item I didn't really spend that much time deliberating whether or not to get it, it was just bought. End of story - very unlike me.
And finally, suspender tights (photographed below). I know I'm super late on the craze but I have always loved how legs look in a pair of stockings and suspenders, so these were a no brainer especially now that New Look does them in two sizes as opposed to the dreaded One Size - I am far too tall for One Size.


I needed a new can of dry shampoo (once I'd finally used up the crappy Superdrug own brand stuff I'd tried) so I thought I might as well go buy the biggest can. It is mammoth. After that I spent a lot of time circling the make up aisles, deciding what to get so I could take advantage of the 3 for 2. Went for the silver nail varnish first since I'd also been eyeing that for a while even though I have far too many nail varnishes, and then after a looonnnnggg period of further wandering I decided on a new eyeliner, since I've never tried the felt tip style applicator (I don't think that L'Oreal's Carbon Gloss really's a bit more spongey).  I think I'll do a review of it once I've given it a whirl.

So there it is, my easter shopping haul. Back to uni on Monday, but hopefully the posts will keep on coming. I'm also working on a new theme since the more I look at my current one the more I don't like it (the colour *shudder*).
