latest shopping haul

On Monday Mark, Mark's mum Sandra and I went to Liverpool for a day of shopping. We started the day off with breakfast in Thornton's cafe - delicious (we have since been for lunch because it was so delicious). It was a very successful day of shopping!! Except Mark not being able to buy Fifa 13 as it was sold out anyway!! I can't resist a bit of cute or pretty stationary..!
Above: Claire's nail polish £1, Paperchase goodies: postcards 60p each, folder 80p, stickers £1.20, cat highlighters £2.50 and other gifty bits not pictured!

The nude coloured top has a dipped hem at the back, lace neckline, and zip on the back. This dress is my best buy - I have lusted after this dress since I tried it on in a ridiculously small size 6 a couple of weeks ago. It was in the sale but I managed to track it down on Monday, and I am so pleased!! It is a beautiful powdery pink colour, in a tweedy/boucle style material. The texture is gorgeous. It has a tulip skirt, and stitched detailing on the bodice which very much reminds me of Luella. I decided on the size 10 in the end, as the hemline was more roomy and I prefer being able to move my legs!!
Top £6 New Look reduced from £14.99, dress £15 Miss Selfridge instead of £45

After receiving a very disappointing Ann Summers sale order which I have since sent back, I was on the hunt for a pretty new underwear set. I found this Wonderbra set in TK Maxx, the nude and pink combination is so pretty, I just love it.
Bra £6.99 instead of £26, pants £3.99 instead of £12, both TK Maxx

And the final things to share with you, two packets of Moshi lego bits for the twins and a 'Keep Calm and Drink Tea' badge for Mark.
Moshi packs £1.99, badge 60p, both Forbidden Planet

Hope you enjoyed my hauls!! Mark treated us all to lunch in Bella Italia and it was divine!! I had spaghetti bolognese (of course!) followed by mini chocolate torte with a hot chocolate. Ah, it was so delicious :) I have a small but successful charity shop haul to post about soon :)
