Collective Haul | Including Matalan, eBay and The Range

So last weekend I popped into Matalan to have a little mooch around, and believe it or not they actually have some lovely stuff in there at the minute!
I thought I would show you lovely lot what I bought.
 (I have shoved a few other recent purchases on the end too, seeing as there wasn't really enough of them to do a separate post for!)
So here's the Matalan lot to start off with:

Navy blue and brown quilted jacket £30
Apologies for the awful picture but I've wanted one of these for ages, and this one is perfect!

Chunky knit contrast sleeve cardigan, £20
Now this looks a lot better in real life than it does in the picture, and it is so cosy it's unreal.
 Also comes in grey and black

Pack of 3 stud earrings, was £4 now £2
I only really bought these for the turquoise crosses which I love

Pack of 4 bracelets, was £6 now £3
Pastel colours...enough said

Double layer peace pendant necklace, was £5 now £2.50
I've been looking for a really long necklace for ages now, and this fits the bill perfectly

Floral paper bin, £4
Boringness made cute, yay

Matalan have some fab jewellery at the minute. Definitely worth a peek.

Aaaannnddd the rest...

Red superdry hoodie , £25 from a private eBay seller
Okay don't judge me on this one!!
I play a lot of badminton (and have a lot of lazy-arse sundays) and have been after a red Superdry hoodie for so long because of their amazing fit and I love this gorgeous red colour. I just couldn't justify the £45 price tag, so when I saw this one for £25 I snapped it up... and boy am I glad I did, it's the comfiest hoodie ever!
Please say I'm forgiven?

Ecotools set of 6 makeup brushes, £3.98 from this eBay seller
Fab seller, review coming soon

Urban Thirst pineapple and raspberry vodka flavouring, was £5.99 now £4, TK Maxx
Dislike the taste of vodka, enjoy its effect... this could be the solution.
And what a fab bottle!

Cardigan, £5.50, charity shop (initially M&S)
Very granny-esque

2012 diary, £1.99, the Range
Preparation at its best. Only 2 months 'til Christmas guys!!

2 sheets of pretty paper, 49p each, the Range
I have plans for these, expect a DIY post in the near future :)

And that's the lot!
