I swear this stuff just slipped onto the sales counter

Until this weekend I hadn't been properly shopping in aaaaages. We're saving for a house deposit and after moving out of Cambridge the shops aren't quite as on our doorstep as before. It's great for controlling my spending but the little town of Royston gets boring pretty quickly, so I headed for a solo shopping spree just like old times.

My main aim was to come back with a bag suitable for the spring, as all my bags are either black or very light in colour - I needed a middle ground and this number from River Island fit the bill. It's the perfect size for daytime use out and about as I can comfortably fit my camera, purse, brolly and makeup bag in with a little room to spare. The light brown, dusty type colour goes with so much of my work wardrobe too.

I also picked up a grey high-neck swing dress in the Topshop sale, which I can't find on their website. I haven't bought anything of theirs for years now aside from nail varnish but this is such a good fit and can we worn quite casually. Plus for once it's actually long enough to cover my butt without heading to the Tall section, The struggle is real for those of us with long bodies and short legs!

I also impulse bought some Nikes because not only does it seem like the trendy/basic thing to do at the moment but they are so, so comfy. They didn't have the exact ones that I wanted and they make my feet look gigantic but who cares when it feels like you're walking on clouds?

I can't go shopping without heading into Tiger and Boots, but who can? I grabbed a Collection nail polish from their 7 day wear range which I've yet to try, a well as a Natural Collection mascara that is probably the least irritating for my currently crazy sensitive and constantly sore/inflamed eyes. The little dish and notebook from Tiger were bought purely for the patterns, I won't lie.

Have you indulged in some retail therapy lately?
