I haven't been out shopping for ages, so when I finally had a little bit of spare cash, I looked forward to a relaxing afternoon in town, picking up a few bits and bobs for myself. I wasn't armed with much money, but there was enough to keep the cobwebs in my purse and pocket company.

As is always the case, whenever you have money, there is so little you want to buy, so I ended up getting the boyfriend a jumper and a huge bag of liquorice, because I'm sweet that way. Not that sweet though, because sheer perseverance saw me finding a few things that I did like enough to part with money, I don't spend willy nilly (hehe) like I used to.

How cute is this denim skater dress and it was only £5 in the Primark sale, I've worn it already and it does look lovely on.

I'm a sucker for a good racer back vest, so it better be warm this summer so I can wear this Cheap Monday beauty I picked up from TK Maxx for £7 (that's right just £7). TK Maxx is seriously stocking the hotness right now...

I fancied some nail candy and I am a big fan of the Maybelline Color Show polishes at just £3 a pop, they are great quality, So I picked up a couple of sparkly shades..

And since it is almost Easter and I don't so much as have a sweet tooth as a sweet lower jaw, I had to get a bag of Cadburys Mini Eggs for weekend munching!

What have you guys been buying recently? Or munching on anything delicious?
