HAUL | River Island, Primark, New Look, La Senza, Superdrug

So I might have broken my spending ban... 

Yesterday I went shopping with my best friend and we are literally terrible together because we will find a way to justify anything we want to buy. I only planned on buying a couple of things I needed, but I fell in love with a few things so of course I found a way to justify buying them. I will include my justifications below to make myself feel better. Everything in this haul I bought yesterday apart from two things so including lunch, a night out and new curtains, I've had a very expensive weekend. Oops.

Primark £14 - last pair in my size, meant to be

Primark £4 - gorgeous colour for spring/summer and super cheap. For some unknown reason I picked up the wrong size, despite it being clearly stated rather largely

Primark £4 - I needed a new purse so was looking for a nice summer colour, this is gorgeous, the perfect size and has perfect compartments

Primark £1.50 - super soft considering the price, I'll be using these to remove cleanser
Primark £1.50 - I use these when applying my make up and needed a new one, foundation in bleach blonde hair is not a good look

Primark £2/3 - I buy these every year as they are the only sunglasses that suit me at least a little bit

Primark £1-1.70 each - bad justifying for this one, just wanted some new undies..
Superdrug - Cotton pads two for £2.50, cotton buds £1 - basic necessities!

New Look £14.99 - a basic that will go with lots and feels super nice and silky on | here

New Look £2.99 - I bought this to wear with the dress I bought which you'll see below | here

Amazon £24.99 - I am obsessed with these I think they're amazing!! So comfy to wear out too | here

La Senza £30 - I don't know why this shows up blue, it's black! Every girl needs the perfect black bra and this was it

River Island £20 - these pictures do not do these shorts justice, but they're amazing, so soft and so versatile! Hopefully I'll do an outfit post to show you how they look on | here
River Island £35 - it has been a long while since I have absolutely fallen in love with an item of clothing but this is love. Everything about it is perfect, the pattern, the shape, the fit, the sleeves, the black sections, the length. This is what I bought the belt for, you can see a photo on instagram of how I wore this with the belt! I would still wear it long with a pair of sandals in the summer too | here

So that is everything I bought yesterday, minus the boots and sunglasses. I definitely spent way too much money but I really love everything I bought, especially the above dress! I have linked as much as I can if you would like to take a look at the items!

Have you broken your spending ban recently? Do you always find a way to justify buying things?
