Manchester haul

I went to Manchester last weekend for the Coronation Street Tour (there is more information on my last blog post) and we stayed very close to the Trafford Centre. So it would of been rude not to of made a cheeky stop off!

I only picked up a few bits while i was there, but i am super happy with everything that i brought..

I brought the earrings (pictured above) and bracelet (pictured below) from Warehouse in the sale. I was drawn to both of them as they are not like anything that i already own.
The earrings were £3
I really like how they are delicate and the detailing on them.
The bracelet were £5
I really like how the mint green and the gold compliment each other. The chained tassel also gives it a nice touch.

I went into H&M and picked up too things. Firstly are the shoes pictured above (the image is from H&M website). Mine are currently not looking there best due to them being very wet from the weekend! These cost me £7.99 and are so comfy! You can purchase them here.

Then the shoes were all i was going to by.. but when i was lining up to pay these were by the que lines. I thought these would be great to keep me organised for next academic year! 

The binder clips say:

These cost £2.99

I brought this pretty floral chiffon top from Forever 21. I don't usually go for tops or dresses that are V necked, due to most of them not looking great on me as i have not hugely gifted in the boob area! I was drawn to this top as soon as i walked into the shop and i am sure i will get lots of wear out of it.
On the website it states "Love 21 items run approximately a half size larger than Forever 21 items" but i actually found myself going a size smaller than normal.
Something to keep in mind if you plan to order off the internet.

Forever 21 - £12.75 

I also brought this pretty scarf from the Zara sale. The brightness of the scarf doesn't show up as well on camera, but i brought this because i thought it would add a pop of colour to my outfits in the colder months! 
This was originally £19.99 but was on sale for £7.99
This can be found here.

 I then of course had to pick up a little souvenir from the Coronation Street Tour. There wasn't a great deal to choose from within the gift shop and i really liked the mug so it came home with me, to add to my collection of all my other mugs! This was around £6.50.
