In the UK all non-essential shops have been closed since just before Christmas but as part of the easing of lockdown measures they re-opened on the 12th of April so I decided to have a bit of a shopping spree and buy a few things 🙂
I have been doing quite a bit of online shopping as well so I think I will start with the few bits that I bought online 🙂
The first shop that I looked at online was a brand called Noize who are a sustainable brand and this sweatsuit is made from recycled plastic bottles! I originally heard about this brand through Kalyn Nicholson and decided to order a jumper and sweatpants because #Lockdownfashion 🙂 I absolutely love these and will 100% be wearing these all the time!
The second place that I had ordered some clothes from was a brand called Lucy and Yak which I found out about from my friend Ellie as she was wearing some of their dungarees last time I saw her 🙂 I ordered a purple corduroy dress, a orangey skirt and some red dungarees however I haven’t taken a photo of them because they need to be altered as the legs are slightly too long 🙂 Lucy and Yak are also a relatively new sustainable brand 🙂
The final place I ordered from was a shop called Magical Day Apparel which I found through Carrie Hope Fletchers Instagram and fell in love ❤ I ordered a few pieces which really spoke to me and I love them!!!
The first shop that I went into when shopping in person was Primark because I needed a few bits from their homeware section but decided to have a look at some of their clothes as well and picked up one or two bits 🙂 From the homeware section I picked up some reed diffusers because I love candles but don’t like burning them when I’m out so I felt like reed diffusers were a good alternative 🙂 I then picked up some baskets for my skincare drawer and some notebooks 🙂 I finally picked up 2 t-shirts and a PJ top which I just couldn’t resist 🙂
The next shop I popped into was Tiger because I have missed going in there and finding the most random things! The first thing I picked up were two flower pots because they were so cute and I had seen them in the window when walking past last week 🙂 I then picked up a Yoga block as I didn’t have one of my own and have been borrowing my mums 🙂 I think I might try and pick another one up next week!
Two other shops I went into were The Works and also HMV 🙂 I went into HMV to pick up Taylor Swifts new album and then into The Works to pick up some storage boxes as I was looking for something to store my Camera stuff in as I have spare lenses and information packets that I wanted to pack away safely and neatly 🙂
One of the final places I went into was M&S and picked up some comfy jeans which I didn’t actually take a picture of (such a terrible blogger I know!), I then went into the GoodMove section and picked up some new leggings and also a t-shirt as I needed some more summer work-out tops 🙂 I then found a cute t-shirt with flowers on it which I just had to pick up 🙂
The final shop I went into was GAME and picked up some POPs as I have been wanting some bits to perk up my bookshelves and I think they are really cute so I picked up a Hermione and Mulan pop 🙂
I also went into Waterstones and picked up a few books but I think I will show those in a separate post 🙂
Let me know in the comments what you will be picking up on your first trip to the shops 🙂
