I shop too much.

Okay. First and foremost - somebody stop me from spending money! I've managed to gather the stuff below, within the past week or so, just from simple trips to town for one thing! HELP. 

Secondly, I hope you find something you like in this post, so I feel less guilty about spending lots of money.

I'll stop talking now and get to the fun bit. Here's what I have amassed over the past week:

Primark - £3
A new bunny case: a necessity for any girl, it's so blooming cute, just LOOK AT IT.
 It might not be as protective as an Otterbox case but it sure is prettier!

HMV - £9.99
I picked this lovely lady up at HMV on Monday afternoon (the release date).
I don't know if I've made myself clear enough (ASOS seemed to pick up on it in my #accessallASOS letter) but I'm a pretty big fan girl for Miss KP! And one day, I'm probably going to marry her. 

TK Maxx/Dune - £30 with discount
I picked this up in my local TK Maxx as I'd been looking for a doctors style bag for a good while. I now use this bag for university and it's the perfect size to fit my huge amount of notebooks into, hoo-rah - practical!

Primark - £1.50
I picked these beauties up in the Newcastle Primark a couple of days ago and they're such a good fit for a midi-ring. I know quite a lot of companies seem to make rings for newborn baby-sized fingers, so it's a breath of fresh air to fit into a medium, instead of getting my finger stuck in an XXL.

Primark - £1.50
I'm a sucker for sparkly things and as soon as I saw these, I knew I wanted them. It's coming up to christmas (59 days, eek!) and I thought these would look fab underneath some cut-out boots or even peeping over my Topshop Allegra's.

Ikea - £2ish
Moving swiftly on, when my Mum came to see me last weekend, we nipped to the Ikea in Gateshead to get some homey bits and I managed to sneak this in the basket. How could I say no to pastel pink porcelain?!

Ikea - £5
Okay, it's probably best not to ask about this one. I'm not entirely sure why I bought a plant, but I did. 
To be honest, it does look really good in the flat but it was a really random purchase but hey, look at the plant pot it's in!

Sainsbury's - All above
I feel like this post has just got really weird. The previous picture was a plant and now I have loads of notebooks. The only excuse really for the amount of notebooks I bought is that I will eventually get use out of them at university. However, I could've just bought normal notebooks but these are pretty, so it's acceptable, right? Plus, look how cute the little one is that says "bits and bobs."

 Anyway, back to normal things.. 

Black dress - New Look - £13 SALE
Tartan dress - Primark - £15 

I bought these two dresses recently and absolutely love them both! The black one looks quite smock-ish on the picture, but when you've got a bum and boobs like mine, there ain't no room to "smock". I bought the dress for an up-coming job interview I have, so wish me luck!

The red version of this tartan dress has been doing the rounds on the internet and has soon become a blogger favourite. I spotted this blue and green one in store and wanted it. As you may've seen in my previous shopping post, I bought a tartan bag with the exact same colours, so I thought it was only fair to buy the dress too!

Primark - £5
I then added to my ever growing collection of tartan, by buying a cosy scarf in a deep red colour. I prefer the colours in this scarf much more than the bright "in your face" red tartan scarves. I think this one seems more appropriate for Autumn and for a fiver, it's a steal!

What have you been buying recently?

P.S. I just want to say a quick congrats to everyone recently accepted to the #accessallASOS scheme, I received my welcome package a few days ago and was over the moon! I'm definitely excited to see what's in store for us all!

P.P.S. I'm on the look out for a new deep purple lipstick, if any of you have any recommendations - please let me know in the comments or tweet me!
