Holiday Haul

I'm going to Barcelona on Tuesday which I'm soooo excited about. After working so much recently this is a well needed break and I've never been before so that's always fun.

I've actually been pretty organised (for me) as I usually always leave everything to the last minute and decide there is a million things I need that I haven't got and have no time to buy and I stress over what to pack etc etc... But this time I have got my bum in gear and I'm actually pretty much all set.

So I thought I'd share with you some of the things I've bought to take away with me. I wanted to try and spend as little as possible so I had more money to spend in Barcelona and I think I've done alright for someone who has a bit of a spending problem......

From I picked up these two really cute swing playsuits which were both £12. I'm not too sure how hot it will actually be over there but I can always layer them with a cardigan or something. I also got this black fedora hat which I love and I think would look really nice with both the playsuits. This was also really cheap at just £10.

Then from Primark I picked up this gorgeous white midi skirt as I thought it would look nice both during the day and in the evening. Another bargain for only £10. And I've had a bit of a clear out recently and realised I don't really have any small day time bags so I picked this little black shoulder bag for just £4.

These bikini's were soooo cheap. The turquoise one cost just £4 and the black one was only £3... I'm not too sure if it will be hot enough to sun bathe but you can never be too prepared (and I'm desperate for a tan).

And finally something I actually needed was a washbag for all my toiletries as every single on of mine appears to have a broken zip. So I got this which I thought was really nice and it has a little hook so you can hang it and get to all your stuff really easily. This was only £4.

So that was my little holiday haul, It actually feels like I haven't bought that many things, (my inner spend-a-holic talking).

As always please leave comments below, I always like replying to them.. and if you've been to Barcelona feel free to give me recommendations, advise, etc.. like are the pavements too cobbly to wear heels, are their any good beaches, resturants, bars.. Please please write below.

Thanks for reading,
