New buys..

On my way home from university I go through Leeds city centre and oh how tempting it is to go shopping.I tell myself I just need to pick up one thing and end up going to five shops. Lethal.
Here's some of the things I have bought in the past week...
Okay the 'skin' background looks kind of weird to me but anyway these are both from Primark. The owl is too cute. These were both £1.50 each...they have a lot of jewellery and accessories at that price at the moment.
 I have read soo many fantastic reviews about the 'Treatment for hair that never grows past a certain length' here,and on other blogs. I got it more for the conditioning aspects though,it's normally £7.14 for that tub and the same for the 'Hot shots' (which sounds rather cool, a self heating hair treatment!) but at the moment there's an offer at Boots where you can get any two Lee Stafford products for £8.00 which is such a great offer....I had to take advantage!
 This is one of those things that look better on, but I fell in love with the lace detailing and at £12 from Primark you can't go wrong!
 Cute accessories, the bangle is an exact dupe of the gold and black one I got from forever 21 when I was in Cali... except this was £1.50 and the earrings too, again from Primark.
The first bag is from Topshop at £32 I originally had it in a lovely tan but the clasp to open and close it had broke :l so I took it back and they didn't have any more tan ones at the Topshop I went to so I got that one instead. Fingers crossed this one stays in one piece. 
The bow bag is adorable, I actually got two (one for my giveaway!) I think i'll be using it a lot during summer.
 I am in love with these moccasin shoes. I have been wanting a pair for a while now so when I saw these I just had to get them. They cost £10 from Primark and are also available in brown.
I'm in a bit of a dilemma actually... these are a size 6 and are just a too tight in the toe area (I convinced myself they would be okay), but the 7s were a little too big. I love them too much not to have a pair but it seems as though if I keep the 6 I will kill my feet and the 7 are just going to make me look like I have big feet? Plus I'd have to get insoles. I hate my feet. My second toe in particular, it causes all kinds of problems as it's longer than my big toe haha this makes shoe shopping hard. Anyone else have this problem? or am I the only one blessed with this special toe thing?
I am also in love with blouses right now, they are my favourite thing to wear at the moment. I managed to get my hands on this beaut at the Harrogate Primark for around £12. I really liked the Harrogate Primark, although I got there not long before closing... it was very quiet, really tidy and they had new changing rooms that seemed like they belonged somewhere expensive. Way better than the crappy ones I've come across at shops more expensive than Primark like Miss Selfridge where the curtains don't even close properly so people can clearly see you getting changed from the sides.
Lastly, I have been wanting to try these tights since I saw them on Lilly's blog post ages ago. I never really saw them at my local Primark in Leeds until now! They cost £3.00 and the lining is sooo soft and fleecy, I've only worn them once but I felt like they kept my legs warmer than the average tights do.
