New Years bargains

So I picked up a few things in the sales this year. I think I got a few good deals. As usual the majority of what I bought was from Penneys. I also had a look around the Athlone Shopping Centre. Surprisingly I didn't see much that stood out apart from the one thing I bought which I absolutely love! :) So lets start from the beginning.

When I first went to Penneys I picked up four items. So I'm going to start with the blue top. I have something similar in green and I love it but I love the blue one even more! :) It was reduced to 3 euro. Next is the black top. I saw these in Penneys before Christmas and I wanted one but with all the Christmas shopping I decided against it and I am so glad I did! It was originally 8 euro reduced to 3 :) Next is the red dress. I haven't even tried this on yet but I live the style of it so hopefully it looks nice and all when I get around to wearing it. :) This was 7 as you can see on the sticker reduced to 3. And finally the white top. It reminded me of a top I saw in the summer in New York. It is see through but I have so many camisoles that I can wear under it. Its great for going to the gym too because it is very light. I can't remember what this was originally but it was reduced to 2 euro. How could I pass that up :)

A couple of days later I was back in Penneys. One of my friends bought a pair of shoes that were so adorable. I couldn't restrain myself from buying a pair especially when she said they were really comfortable. I love the boots to look at but personally they kind of hurt my baby toes :( but I love them regardless. The boots were 18 euro and they are so cute. I also bought a pair of tights with a built in sock. So excited to give these a try. They were reduced to 2 euro. Kind of wish I got another pair. I also got a pair of white knee high socks. The plan is to wear them with the boots :) they were only a euro how can you go wrong.

The last fashion thing I bought was a jacket in H&M. I got a voucher for a present and was so excited to have a look in H&M, River Island, The Body Shop and a few of the other shops in there. I was a bit disappointed I didn't see anything I liked. Then I went into H&M and I saw this jacket. I wasn't sure whether or not to get it. I didn't know if it would suit me or not so I got a second opinion and decided to buy it. I'm so glad I did.  I think it was 39.95 reduced to 20 euro. I love it. One of my favorite purchases I must admit. 

As for beauty products I finally got my hands on a L'Oreal Nude Maqique Eau De Teint foundation in the shade 110 Warm Ivory. So far I'm a little undecided. I like the feel of it. Sometimes I forget I have it on which is a pleasant change from some of the other foundations I've had in the past. Even though I love makeup I'm a little lazy when it comes to concealer. This covers some maybe most of the redness and spots. Maybe that's a good thing I might actually start wearing concealer haha. The thing that really bothers me is in certain light its a bit dark or orange or something. Maybe I'm just being a little paranoid. This has been on offer for a while now but I kept putting it off. I decided to get it before the offer ended. It was 7.99! :)

I hope to do a bit of shopping in Galway if there are any bargains left ;) Fingers crossed there are still some nice bits and pieces! :)
