New Job Celebrations – Huge Haul!


To celebrate getting my new job as a Marketing Assistant I decided to treat myself to a couple of things, that however turned into a shopping frenzy and I ended up getting a lot more than I had expected… story of my life, right? 😉

Anyway, I went shopping for a few new outfits for work and a couple of accessories to go with them. I am not going to post the clothes that I got as I thought I may be able to do a few OOTD posts in the future instead.

First of all, I really really want to say sorry for the terrible terrible quality of my pictures, I will be getting a camera soon but I broke my first camera at University and have been in and out of work since graduating and I have just not been able to afford a new one. I feel like a terrible blogger taking all my pictures on my iPhone!

What girl goes shopping and doesn’t go into Primark? I know it’s the first stop for me on most shopping trips and yesterday was no different as I was a woman on a mission! I got quite a lot of clothes items as I was walking around and as I was so impressed with my finds I decided to chance the shoe section. I had my heart set on a pair of Chelsea boots from New Look (you can see my wish list here) but I was so happy when I saw a sale on boots in Primark that I think I spent about half an hour trying everything on. In the end I walked away (pun not intended!) with two pairs which I spent £10 less than I would have for the pair from New Look.

The grey boots are absolutely gorgeous, they are so comfortable and just the right height for walking around at work. They were the first pair that I tried on and I almost had a heart attack when I saw they were only £10. I thought that things couldn’t get any better until I walked around the corner and saw the black Chelsea boots, I tried them on without even checking the price as I thought they looked great for work and after falling in love with them I realised they were only £5. I did have to stop myself from buying anymore boots from the sale, but there were so many that I wanted.

The other thing I desperately needed was a few nice necklaces as I always seem to break mine easily. I love the variety that Primark has to offer and ended up picking up quite a few bargains from the sale too.  I seem to have picked up a lot of gold stuff without even realising, so I will definitely be going back to get a collection of silver jewellery too. I did get another gold necklace and some hair clips similar to the ones on my New Look Wish List that I haven’t pictured below as it was difficult to get a picture of them, but I still love them just as much 🙂

After going slightly crazy in Primark I went to Dorothy Perkins and I was a little bit calmer, I only ended up getting one necklace in the sale.


It is very similar to one I have been looking at every single time I go in there, but its just as nice and has a little bit of colour in it instead. This beauty was reduced down from £10 to £3 so I couldn’t help myself! I love the lace detail in it and that its actually quite a big statement necklace.

The next thing I bought was a new folder and notepad for when I start my new job.I knew I would need new stationary so I thought I would start by getting this gorgeous things by Laura Ashley. They are both available in WHSmith and at quite reasonable prices too. The folder was £3.99 and the notepad was only £6.99. I love the notepad a lot because the pages have a very faint copy of the front pattern on them and it looks sooo pretty and girly.

The last thing I got is possibly one of my favourites… this gorgeous briefcase style black bag from LYDC. I absolutely love bags and I have been looking at this one for months and I kept telling myself when I get a marketing job I will buy it, I was so happy when my boyfriend decided to buy it for me when I found out I got the job! Its got three separate compartment and its the perfect size for my notepad, folder, diary and everything else that I carry around with me. There are also two It’s definitely not one of my most expensive bags and I actually think it’s so affordable at just under £30! I really can’t wait to start using this as I think it will make me feel really business-y 🙂

I am so happy with everything I bought and I think this will be the last haul until payday, although I am now saving up to move into my own place (yay!) so I need to put myself on a serious spending ban! So, what has everyone else been buying this week?
