There’s only one way to see in the new year properly… SHOPPING!

and that’s exactly what I did!

Here’s my first big haul of 2015…

January sales proved to be very successful once again.


I will start with just a few beauty products I picked up, some were in the sales some were just random buys!


1 – Garnier moisture match

I bought one of garnier’s ‘moisture match’ moisturiser’s – the green one – in moisture + matte. I can’t wait to start using this as it is a light, daily moisturiser that doesn’t leave the normal sticky residue that most moisturisers leave. It was also half price in boots only £1.99 – BARGAIN!

2 – maybelline new baby skin ‘instant pore eraser’

I tried this out today for the first time after a friend recommended it. This light weight primer is almost a double of the benefits primer, it is so easy to apply leaving your skin so silky smooth with a matte effect. Definitely would recommend this for anyone wanting a good primer for a less expensive price!

3 – Angel by Thierry Mugler

I had a free sample of this a while back and immediately fell in love with it so I had to get it. And what made it even better was it was half price for the whole gift set in boots – which meant a very happy Anna!

4 – top shop glittery nail varnish – ‘song and dance’

This cute blue glittery nail varnish was only £3 in top shop, so I thought why not add a little sparkle to 2015 with this cute little number!


I am loving Primark this season. And I have managed to pick up some brilliant on trend items and not to mention some amazing bargains!


This is my gorgeous dog tooth patterned thick winter scarf – only £5. One can never own too many scarfs and this monochrome number is very in at the moment!


This rolled neck thick jumper/poncho in a dark grey is the perfect pull over, for a casual outfit that you can just chuck on. £14 and they had other colours too. The high rolled turtle neck is very in at the moment, perfect for these cold winter months.


I love my shirts and blouses, especially with a nice collar. What I love about this blouse is how simple and plain it is with the lace trim detail along the shoulders. But the best thing about the blouse is that it only cost me £3!


But this… This is the best bargain! My £1 kimono… Yes I said £1. I don’t even, I can’t even explain how much I love this classy little kimono perfect to jazz up an outfit for an evening or a casual day time outfit. And I am already pairing it with high waisted shorts for the summer!


My last little buy in Primark. You can never have enough little throw on shoes to put with an outfit! These were only £6 and £8 so perfect for a budget and can be worn with practically anything. I find them perfect to wear for work.



Underwear shopping is always a good idea. You know that amazing feeling you have when you have a cute matching set! This lovely Lacey nude set was £19 for both from H&M, simple but sassy! The pants were all a couple of pounds from Primark.


Checkered shirt from Dorothy Perkins sale only £12. I love pairing these shirts with some jeans for a comfy, casual wear look.


Another kimono! Well it’s a jacket kimono style thingy… £20 in the warehouse sale! I love the floral patterns and again I can wear this now for an evening look and keep it for a cute summer outfit!


I love this ditsy cute little floral dress… Once again another bargain (there’s a theme here) £10 in the new look sale. I have paired this with some tights and my black heeled Chelsea boots and a chunky cardy. But also can see me wearing this in the summer without tights and with some cute sandals.


This was not in the sale, and it is the fashion Union range in new look (£18) I absolutely fell in love with it when I saw it. The monochrome, the pattern, the shape, everything! I can’t wait to style it!


I was desperate for some new blue jeans, and I have always loved topshops jeans as they fit really well and are so comfy! They aren’t real denim, these are the Joni high waisted jeans which are stretchy jegging like material.

Hope you liked my rather long haul, sorry if it went on a bit. And let me know if you would like more posts like this. Comment if you got any good bargains in the sales as I love a good bargain!

Thanks a lot!
