Shiny new things from York and Meadowhall

As promised here are the things I've been buying over the last few days.
This is also day 18 of the 30 day tag which is whatever tickles your fancy.
I didn't get much in York due to Barclays bank going down and me only having a certain amount of cash on me, it was probably a good thing though as i could have spent a fortune.
Firstly i got this necklace from a random little shop for £1, its wooden and i put it on as soon as i got it.
We went into Joy who had loads of sale stock in, Phil got a gorgeous top(he'd never even heard of Joy before so clearly I'm educating him!). I picked up this studded bag reduced for £45 to £13.50. Its huge inside and I'm considering it for a funky changing bag when i take bump out in his sling. Its much more funky then the one that came with our travel system.
And that was all from York!
On Sunday at meadowhall i spent a bit more! Theres a very definite Autumnal feel to the stock in the shops which is great, i love Autumn and the colours that are traditionally in fashion.
I needed a new mascara and wanted to try a new one so i went for MAC Opulash, hopefully I'll like it!
I grabbed this grey nail polish for £1.75 using my No.7 £5 off voucherI popped into H&M where my mum treated me to a couple more pairs of maternity leggings. They are so high waisted and unsexy but sooooo comfy.
Then we went onto Primark.
I got this grey frill sweatshirt, I've sized up so its long enough and big enough to cover my bump up. I'm not normally a sweatshirt girl but its perfect for just being at home.
Grey hat and bird pin, i love this hat SO MUCH!
I got some grey ribbed thick tights to replace my old ones and some really thick nude/greyish coloured tights.
Finally i got a couple of long black vests as none of mine cover my bump anymore, these are long enough to wear with leggings and good for layering as the weather cools. I got black
and nude.
Not the most exciting buys but I'm trying so hard not to buy lots of maternity clothes that will only be worn a few times.
Have you been buying anything exciting? xx
