a little haul


It’s been such a pain trying to post this, I’m in London at the moment and currently don’t have an Internet connection at my new house! I had planned to go across the road to the library but lost track of time and had to be elsewhere. Here I am at Doms uncle’s house in Old Street, tethering my iPhone so I could quickly upload! I’m on the third floor of the house and my laptop refuses to connect to the wifi here, so thank you iPhone for saving the day, once again!

I thought I’d blog about what I’ve bought recently as these are one of my favourite kinda posts to read from other bloggers, probably because I’m so nosey... I definitely wish I was brave enough to create a YouTube video for this post, it’d make my life a lot easier as I can sense I will have loads to type about!

Everybody loves a Yankee candle and after buying quite a few various scents in sampler size I thought it was time to buy a proper jar! Vanilla cupcake is my all time favourite smell, but I also love Mango Peach Salsa after getting it for Dom (yes my boyfriend likes candles haha) and Strawberry Buttercream is heavenly! I cannot wait for all the Christmas scents to appear in the shops, especially Christmas Cookie, mmm.

I bought the Aussie shampoo, conditioner & three minute miracle reconstructor full size after I tried out the minis of all 3. My hair/scalp is quite sensitive so I often buy the mini version of a shampoo first to see if I can cope with it! I’m going to write a proper review on these products as my hair loves them and I’ve seen such a difference. I bought these when they were on offer in Tesco, 3 for £10, and I think Boots are currently running a similar offer.

St Ives Apricot Scrub was a much loved product during my early teens. I’ve never had particularly bad skin, luckily, so this is ideal to purely freshen up my skin in the morning!

MUA reached 25,000 likes on Facebook and to celebrate they offered 25% discount on orders over £10 plus free postage, obviously I couldn’t resist this! I’ve been meaning to pick up the Heaven & Earth palette for ages now but found it hard to get hold of, so I’m glad I finally own this! I also bought the Undressed palette as I’ve heard it’s a great dupe for Urban Decays Naked2 palette. The blusher is shade 4 and has quickly become my go to blusher, it is super pigmented though so a little goes a long way. I did buy a lipstick too, shade 15 or ‘Juicy’ but I gave this to my sister as she wanted a peach/nude toned lipstick but was yet to find the perfect one until now, well done MUA!

L’oreal Liquid Superliner is my current eyeliner, it’s easy to use and lasts all day. I’d like to try some other liquid eyeliners though, please feel free to leave me some suggestions (:

I really hoped I wouldn’t fall in love with anything from the latest Essie collection, but of course I want almost all six shades! I really liked Mojito Madness, it’s a perfect grass green & Fear or Desire is a fab, fiery orange colour but I managed to decide on Bikini so Teeny eventually. I can’t fault the Essie polishes though, they apply so nicely and last well.

Why has Primark been SO good the past couple of weeks!? All my recent wardrobe purchases have been from there! I am over the moon that I finally got my hands on the khaki/leather jacket that is an amazing dupe of the Zara/River Island/Topshop version, plus it was less than half the price. The cream chunky knit jumper is super cosy and has cute coffee coloured elbow patches too! Finally I picked up the black studded bag for uni as it will fit A4 folders in, plus my laptop and anything with studs is a must for me! I NEED the studded clutch bag that lots of you seem to have, I’m going on a hunt for it tomorrow in fact...

Keep an eye out for upcoming outfit posts featuring the clothes I’ve shown above and also full reviews of the products I purchased!

  19. The Aussie Mircacle moist shampoo and conditioner are my fav! I'm just finishing off mine... Boots stopped doing the offer I think, it wasn't on when I went in there on Friday.. As that's where I got my batch from! Before then it was ASDA... love 3 minute miracle too. And love the MUA palettes.
