Homeware, beauty & clothing buys ♥

Hiya lovelies
I popped into town this morning to take back most of the items I ordered from New Look (in an earlier post).  Thanks for all your comment about the pretty blouse, I decided to keep it as its so lovely and nice worn with a pencil skirt for work.
In Primark I bought this ditsy duvet set...a snip at only £13.00 and definitely shabby chic which is the look I wanted to create. Basically we have decided to paint the walls an off white colour, the colour is called Jasmine White by Dulux and it matches perfectly with the wallpaper.   Our furniture is white too so I am sure it will look fab.
I have wanted this duvet for a while but wanted to be sure what colour we were going for before buying it.
I also got these nude ballet pumps.

I also got these Boots in the sale and got an extra 30% off so they came to £11.00.

I also popped into Wilkinsons to have a look around and ended up buying these artificial flowers...they look lovely in the cream vase and this is on my windowsill in the kitchen.
a few little bits
Vanilla ice cream nail varnish wipes £1.99, Primark Cath Kidston alike luggage tag £1.00, air freshener £1.99 for my wardobe.
I popped into Boots to get my No7 Mascara but it was full price and I had no discount vouchers so I decided to try another!  As all 17 mascaras are reduced at the moment I thought I would try one, problem is they have so many!!  I like the sound of the Peep Show one but thought I would try the Falsifeye one.  This is £6.49 at the moment.  I hope its good :) 
Mike and I popped to B&Q after and we bought two curtain rails and a shelf for the bedroom.  We also went into Morrisons and I purchased these two white photo frames for half price..only £1.50 each.
I have a few photos I want to put up when the bedroom is done so I want to get a few more frames.
Oh and I also bought a few clothing items in New Look which I shall put in another post :)
Well my weekend will be spent stripping wallpaper...the horrible part! I will take some photos when its done.
Have a lovely weekend
