...Mini Haul

Hey girls! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's literally been a crazy but amazing week! I don't know where to start, but basically I'VE LANDED A FULL TIME JOB AT TOPSHOP! I cannot express my happiness, it's literally a dream come true of mine and I'm extremely happy as it will open so many doors for me to get into the fashion indsutry later on in life! I didn't really see any point in handing in my CV because they never have any jobs going, but literally the minute I walked in, I heard one of the shop workers say "yes we have a full time position available" I literally rushed over to her straight away and gave her my CV, thinking nothing of it. The next day I got a phone call from her asking me to go in for an interview on Saturday, which I did and I didn't think I did that well because it was extremely intense. She said she'd let me know up to 2 weeks whether I was successful or not because she had other people to interview, but literally an hour after the interview she rang me telling me I got it straight away as they were really impressed and that I'd fit in with the team well! So excited :) I start in 2 weeks time and get a uniform allowance and 25% discount! So I will be posting a lot about the clothes I buy and wishlists from there so stay tuned! Anyway, when I went to town I picked up a few little bits and bobs that I've wanted for some time :)
The first item I purchased was the Body Shop shower gel which I absolutely love! My boyfriends mum bought me this for Christmas and I absolutley love the scent, it smells so fresh and it's gorgeous! I ran out so quickly as I used so much, so I popped into Bodyshop again and bought another one and it was only £4.50, as you can see it's called 'Atlan Mountain Rose' and I definitely recommend it to everyone!
 
Next I bought some nail wraps from Primark. I've seen bloggers post about them before saying how lovely and cute the patterns are, and they did actually have a really nice selection! I picked the spots and flowers because they're right up my street and are really cute, especially for £1 each! But then when I applied them, they literally lasted about 1 day and that was it. They're cheap for a reason! I was going to post a photograph of my nails but by the time I was going to, they started to peel off which was annoying :( they're really pretty patterns but I wouldn't recommend!
 
Lastly, I bought these really cute elasticated headbands from Primark and they were also £1 each! They'd go lush with my fringe, as they have really cute bows on the top, so with my hair up in a high bun, it would look really cute and I think they'd make any outfit look good :) these are obviously more for during the day than evening and I can literally wear them wherever! I was slightly disappointed with Primark's selection, these were the only two styles they had and I was expecting more! But I still love them :) I will do a post of me wearing them at some point so keep an eye out!
 
What do you guys think? :)
