Recent purchases October/November

I thought I'd share a few things I have purchased and am loving. They are just random things I've picked up throughout October/November. So here goes...

So I absolutely adore this necklace. It has a neon yellowy green rope with this huge sparkly, layered centre. I got this from Primark! I get 99% of my jewellery from Primark as it's always on trend, with very similar pieces to topshop but at prices I can actually afford! This was in the sale for £2 but when I checked my receipt it went through at 50p, FIFTY PENCE! What a bargain! I love sales! 

Hair clips. I have mid/long length hair but its very thick. I used to struggle with kirby grips trying to keep my hair in place tightly, that was until my sister showed me these. They are industrial kirbys! They are my absolute favourite when I use my bun ring, 2 or 3 of these and my bun is firmly locked down, not going anywhere. I saw these in boots and decided to pick some more up just because I love them and every girl knows that hair clips just seem to disappear at a high rate. I can't remember the price but I think it was £2/3. 

Mascara is my most used item of makeup, it finishes your entire look. I seem to have a huge collection, but yet I continue to buy and find the holy grail of mascara. This one is definitely my favourite (for the moment) Rimmel Scandaleyes. I picked this up on the '3 for 2 on all makeup products' deal at boots. It has a thick fibre brush, it gives good length and colour whilst managing to not clump and make your eye lashes look like thick bugs legs. I'd give it a 9/10.  Rimmel Scandal'Eyes mascara, £6.99, Boots. 

Everyone needs a pair of boots for fall/winter. I was on the hunt for a while, then I purchased these classic chelsea boots from Topshop. They have a good sole, which is a key consideration when buying a pair of boots, good to last the winter season. They are also 100% leather which is also important. They are just a simple black boot which means they pretty much go with anything, which is exactly what I was looking for. I got them for £60 but I have just been online and seen that they are now in the sale for £45, selected sizes only so go and grab a pair. 

YAY! I am so happy I finally have a new phone! I used to have my dad's old iphone 4 and a sim only contract. It was getting too slow and frustrating for me so I thought it was time for an upgrade. I wanted to keep my contract (with 3 mobile) at the same rate of £15/month but get the new iphone 5s and the only way to do this was to buy the phone outright and then just swap my sim card to the new even tinier, nano sim. I had money still from my job in summer so it was an early Christmas present to myself. I absolutely adore my new iphone, its so quick, the camera is amazing and the fingerprint entry is just too cool! Iphone 5s, £549, 3 Store. 

Have you got any of these items, what do you think of them?
