As longer time readers of my blog might recall, I was lucky enough to win Debenhams Autumn Winter style challenge with this post, which came with a cool £500 in vouchers to spend. I've never been let loose with that much at once so needless  to say I got a bit excited and I wanted to show you what I bought with my winnings.

As soon as I knew Debenhams stocked Yankee candle, I knew I had to get my first one. I went for one of their classic scents I'd been after for ages and I'm already halfway through, I love it so much for an evening relaxing. I also wanted a nod to the lovely Ben de Lisi who judged the competition so I picked up some of his mugs for Ryan and I. Can you guess which ones mine? I also went crazy and bought us a beautiful posh bed sheet but I couldn't resist getting it on before I got the chance to do pictures.

Fashion

I took the chance to raid the Topshop concession and finally get myself some Leigh jeans. I'm so glad I did, it feels good to have comfortable trousers without an elasticated waist. I got them in both coated leather style and traditional denim with distressed knees. I'm not completely weaned from the treggings as these Lily Melrose inspired hounds-tooth trousers prove, they're so perfect for work. I also couldn't resist the cosy gilet and jumper dress for the winter.

As you can see this is where I really let loose. I bought my first bits from Illamasqua (heart eyes emoji for the rose gold lid) so I'll be blogging my introduction to the brand very soon as well as picking up something from each of my favourites. I think my favourite thing was the limited edition Cheeky Sweet Spot tin giving me a chance to try a few of their blush shades including Hoola, before I committed to buying a whole one. It's sold out online now, but there are a few left in stores and considering the full sizes blushes are around £23, paying £29 for 6 as well as a little Watts Up is a steal. I will definitely be getting myself a full size Hoola when this runs out.

So there we have it my winnings all gone! I'm very grateful to the lovely Ben de Lisi and Debenhans for the win, if you fancy taking part in one of their blogger challenges it's definitely worth keeping an eye on their Debreif. I'm sure it won't be long before I'm nipping in  again to get my next fix. 

If you'd like to see a full review of anything I bought let me know in the comments. 

See you soon!
