I Went Shopping!

Oh look what I went and did! Spent pennies that I most definitely don't have. I have an unbelievable amount of things on this summer, from weddings to holidays to festivals to the commonwealth games; my diary is looking absolutely jam-packed, and all I need now is a little bit of sunshine to get me excited for upcoming events :)! Of course i should really be budgeting my money for these things, but I keep telling myself that its okay to treat yourself every now and again!

So, I'll start with everyone's favorite budget high street store Primark! I have a real hate love relationship with Primark to be honest, and I quite often find that I can go in and not like anything at all while there are other times I could spend my whole wage in there. I'm aware that the clothes are not the best quality nor are they that well tailored, but to be honest if I'm getting something to wear for a night out or buying holiday clothes its not likely I am going to wear them again anyways(...and I wonder where all my money goes)! The very first thing I picked up was this cute little floral bikini! I love bandeau bikinis as it means you don't get nasty strap tan lines, and this one is so adorable! I think it was about £8 for the whole thing, so it was a total bargain! I also got some standard black flip flops to wear on the beach for a quid! After the cheeky holiday purchases I headed to the shoes planning to buy a cute pair of sandals, but I couldn't resist these cute T-bar dolly shoes. I really think these are going to look so sweet with a pair of frilly socks and shorts in the summer! On my way to the check out I also spotted the darker version of my new fave tanning product, which I have been meaning to try out for ages. Obviously that went straight into my basket, and now that I've tried it I can reveal that I personally like it better than the original. It gives a slightly darker look, which i personally like for nights out.

I then went straight to House of Fraser to pick up a Pliage Long Champ Bag I had seen in the sale (Sorry about the link they are not on the HoF website!)! This cream one had 30 percent off and I know it will be the perfect hand luggage bag for my flight to Turkey in August! Unfortunately, its already a little dirty so I'm not sure if cream was really the wisest color choice for me personally, but ah well. I also managed to snap up this cute little Polka Dot Shirt from the Miss Selfridge, which I thought would be amazing for work. Its so loose fitting and comfortable, and looks great with a pair of leggings! Instead of heading home after all of that I decided to go to The Body Shop to get Lewis's mum some nice skincare bits for her birthday, and because I had so many stamps on my membership card I got this lovely Blueberry Scrub-Gelee absolutely free!! It smells so delicious and I literally cannot wait to use it!

I'd also like to invite you all to like my new China Doll Diaries Facebook Page! I decided to make this so that my non-blogging friends had a way of keeping up to date with my blog as it can be pretty tricky to do so without Bloglovin'!

What did you think of my shopping spree? Was I naughty enough? 


  1. I love haul posts.
    I picked up that same tan from Primark the other day as they don't stock my usually Sally Hansen anymore. I am yet to try it out but hoping it's good, such a great price.

    1. I personally love it! It goes on so easily, but I would leave it on over night rather than just an hour if I were you! :) xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. Yup! And only £8! :) xxxx

  3. Those little shoes are so cute! I definitely need a good old shopping trip!
