Shopping in Spain and Scotland: Fashion Finds From Zara, Sfera, H&M and Arran Aromatics!

I won't lie, I'm a leeeeetle bit sad at not being on holiday anymore. I recently spent a week in Spain and then a week in Scotland chilling out with my family and in-laws, and it was just what the doctor ordered. It's always a bit of a struggle getting back into the daily grind but I'm consoling myself with these pretty purchases I picked up on my travels.

Studded flats have been on my wishlist for ages now - I was dithering over investing in these Jeffrey Campbell flats - but this pair from Zara in Murcia was just €18. Score! The purse was the same price (well, €17.95) so it wasn't quite as bargaintastic but what can I say? I love studs! (What girl doesn't? Fnaar fnaar!)

I could have spent all day in the accessories section at Sfera, another Spanish highstreet brand, but Mr Fluff was having none of it - so I just grabbed these little skull clips (they were only a couple of euro), and one or two little pieces as gifts. The gold flat chain necklace is from H&M; I'd spotted it on the gorgeous Beauty Crush, so I picked that up for about €7. I'm so susceptible!

We also spent a day on the island of Arran, just off the west coast of Scotland, which included a wee visit to Arran Aromatics. I'll tell you more about it in a separate post, but while I was there I bought my first candle from the brand - an unusual sounding almond and frankincense - and at the till I chucked in a mini soap in Just Grapefruit. I love this scent - I've enjoyed the handwash and handcream from this range before.

What do you make of my Spanish and Scottish buys? Are you familiar with any of the brands? And have you treated yourself to anything lovely of late?
