I went on an ill advised splurge and came out with:

- sandalwood oil (one of my favourite fragrances!)
- beautiful camel tailored skirt (2nd hand)
- wool/silk tweed trousers (2nd hand)

And I should be saving, dammit, saving (should change name to currentlyunemployeddotcom).

How about everyone else?

OneLittleLady Sat 11-May-13 17:37:55

I've bought nothing at all today. I'm trying to stick with a spending ban hmm

OneLittleLady I require your self restraint smile

OneLittleLady Sat 11-May-13 17:40:16

Haha, I'm only restrained as I have no spare money to spend!

Sparkletastic Sat 11-May-13 17:40:20

I bought some dullsville linen trousers and blue maxi dress from Next but just cheered myself up with more frivolous purchases of Jean Couturier Eau de Coriandre and Bvlgari Black from Cheapsmells!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 11-May-13 17:40:59

Some cotton wool.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 11-May-13 17:41:15

Got a bit carried away in tk maxx- denim and supply red gypsy ish top, Clements ribiero gypsy ish top in cream, red Michael kors
dress and joules light woollen dress in clearance section. All good bargains but I only went in for scented candles...

liftthatup TKMaxx is lethal

daisydoodoo Sat 11-May-13 17:44:32

Jeans my first pair in about 15 years im not sure that I will actually wear them to be honest though. I am much more of a dress type person. I brought some 'slub' t shirts as well.

I went to next to buy my brother a t shirt and socks for his birthday and was pleasantly surprised by some of the clothing in there. Brought the dd's some clothes for holidays too and not a next branding in sight.

TKMaxx is indeed lethal, but it can be a feast or a famine... I hadn't seen anything in there for a good while and then all of a sudden there was too much good stuff today. Of course self- restraint wouldn't be an option blush

Nothing except a small box of thank-you notes for 7.50 and some groceries, despite visiting quite a few attractive shops.

noisytoys Sat 11-May-13 18:44:07

Some plain black £5 trousers from primark

Hopefully Sat 11-May-13 18:47:27

cotton wool pads for cleansing, and some neon green Models Own (I think?) nail varnish. Am debating how scared my clients will be if I wear it tomorrow.

And almost a t-shirt, but I couldn't be bothered to queue. <bone idle>

TheWildBeastofPontypandy Sat 11-May-13 18:49:23

This bikini as recommended on an S&B thread.

blibblibs Sat 11-May-13 18:58:51

I bought these today and I love them

And a Gok top from Sainsburys which doesn't seem to be online. They are meant to be for an interview next week but not sure they really work. Still love them smile

I bought 3 no7 tinted moisturisers as there was a great glitch on them. They are currently on 3 for 2 and buy 1 get the 2nd half price and then the 2 vouchers (£5 off skincare and £3 off make up) went through together and along with staff discount bought for under £10!

Also bought some dove moisturisers as they are half price in boots and some cotton wool balls.

scarlet76 Sat 11-May-13 19:19:01

Am up north visiting family and managed to get a couple of child free hours to shop.
I got a breton style top from NW3. Good for weekends with jeans. My staple look.
I got a black jersey tube skirt from Topshop for work. It's midi length on shorty me and will wear with shirts or vests tucked in and heels.
I got a neon pink scarf in White Stuff. I love neon pink for the summer.

nappydaysagain Sat 11-May-13 19:22:19

I bought a bikini for my holiday which is later this month. Also a couple of tshirts for DSs

TSSDNCOP Sat 11-May-13 19:33:49

I bought these, these, and this. A vg day.

Chandelierforagirl Sat 11-May-13 19:52:19

Revitalift Winkle cream, at a discount, and other toiletries. I spent £80 in boots, mind you my £15 a box vitamins were on a 2 fur 3 offer!

PasswordProtected Sat 11-May-13 20:03:01

I bought a pair of trousers & 2 pairs of FitFlops online.

MelanieCheeks Sat 11-May-13 20:06:09

I bought a pair of Fitflops in a discount shoe shop (£25)

And a Kookai stripey wraparound dress in green/ olive colours charity shop £4.95.
And a birthday card 99p

Sprayed some O de Lancome on to try it, not too sure if its me.

WildThongsHeartString Sat 11-May-13 20:07:33

I bought l'occitane shower gel (1/2 price on brand alley) and a pair of gardening gloves smile
