Hello my lovelies! Today I have a massive haul to share with you! These are things that I have picked up over the past three months on various trips to London. The majority of items are beauty related, although there are a few clothing garments and random bits! This will be quite a lengthy post but I hope you enjoy it!
The first thing I picked up was in the Space NK sale. This Laura Mercier Crème Brulee bath set was reduced from £30 to £15. I adore Laura Mercier bath and body products. A few years ago I received the Coconut and Almond set and the hand cream quartet for Christmas. Crème Brulee is definitely my favourite scent as it is so sweet and delicious!
Also ordered from Space NK is the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. Mine is in the shade Fiji. I have lusted after this foundation for longest time, but have always put off buying it for reasons that I can't even remember! This foundation is absolutely gorgeous and I love how flawless it makes my skin look without being cakey. I am going to wear this foundation to my prom not only because of how it makes my skin look but it has no SPF (this is a positive and a negative point) but that means no flashback- yay!
I was in the market for a new black eyeliner and after hearing many rave reviews about this Topshop Magic Liner I decided to buy it. Whilst it is not the blackest eye liner out there, I love the consistency and how easy it is to achieve a perfect wing with the thin nib.
This is my second foundation purchase- bought to be worn on an every day basis. As much as I love my NARS foundation, it is so expensive that I cannot justify wearing it every day. I have read a lot of mixed reviews on this foundation, but I really like it. It wears really well, and the coverage is excellent. For a drugstore foundation, its pretty good!
Boots were holding an offer when if you bought a Rimmel Foundation (above) then you received a Fix and Perfect Pro Primer Free. I am always up for trying a new primer as I can't not wear one because of my oily skin. I really like this primer, it makes my skin feel nice and my foundation lasts relatively well with it on.
Just like everyone else, I am always on the look out for products that will help me achieve perfect skin. Whilst I am still on the hunt for it, some products have come pretty close! Again, I've heard amazing things about the Origins Clear Improvement mask. I've only used it once, so I can't comment to in depth about it, but so far so good!
My second NARS product of the haul. This is my first ever NARS blush and it is just gorgeous. Deep Throat is the most perfect peachy pink colour and I can see it looking lovely on more tanned skin in the summer. As always with the brand, the packaging is very sleek and high quality.
It is so difficult to capture how stunning this product is on camera. For two years I have wanted this beauty and after only payer £6 in the end for it, (I had a £25 voucher)! I am so excited that its finally mine. It is, of course, Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel (Bronze Universal). Probably the most gorgeous makeup item in my collection and I just can't wait to use it!
This is simply a repurchase of my favourite eye brow pencil- MAC's Lingering.
Another prom related product. My actual dress is a champagne/ nude colour, but all of my accessories are going to be rose gold (as you will see in a minute). The colour of Sally Hansen Pennies for Heaven is coming up much more bronze than it is in real life. In reality it is a beautiful shimmery, perfect rose gold shade.
This is the final instalment of the beauty part of my haul. I have tried the Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush in the past, and wanted a change, so I repurchased it in the Popcorn flavour.
As a regular concert goer, a small bag is essential. I even get tired of my standard small across body bag, so before Christmas, my Mum showed me a picture of a Michael Kors Wristlet. I love Michael Kors as a brand and really feel that you get what you pay for. I have had my rose gold watch for nearly 2 years, and still love it. Inside the wristlet is a compartment especially for an iphone, room for cash and cards. It was pricy at £85 but a worthy investment in my opinion as I will always use it.
Just before Christmas, when I was shopping in Cardiff with my best friend, I spotted this Ted Baker clutch. I instantly fell in love- anything rose gold is pretty much a winner for me! The only downside was the £129 price tag. Whilst on South Molten Street (next to Bond Street tube station on Oxford Street and one of my favourite shopping spots) in the new years sales I saw it again in the Ted Baker store. Much to my utter delight, it was in the sale! I immediately knew it had to be mine and bought it for £77, which if you ask me, is a brilliant save! I have worn it once already and am planning to wear it to my prom in June.
One of the main things I set out to buy, was another pair of Zara Leggings. I have one other pair and I seriously wear them all the time, and that's not an over statement! So much so, that a tiny hole has begun on one of the legs- hence I needed a new pair. These leggings cost £19.99, and are amazing quality.
Also from Zara are these dark indigo wash jeggins. I wore them yesterday and they incredibly comfortable. Again, they were very reasonable at £22.99 and excellent quality.
This is my final Zara purchase and possibly my favourite. I found this in the sale for the bargain price of £7.99. It is a really pretty and flattering sheer crop top. I wear it over a black cami with my jeggins above.
Last summer I had the same Primark dress in red and I wore it ALL the time! Parties, in Paris, my birthday, I got a lot of wear out of it. When I saw the same dress in pink I had to have it. It doesn't look very flattering in this picture, but it looks nice on.
As a huge fan of Made in Chelsea, and Jamie Laing; these were a must. My Mum and I have watched and loved the show since day 1, and I've actually met Jamie. I visited the Candy Kittens pop up store in 2012 and because they didn't do sweets then, I picked up a t-shirt. Now, finally, Candy Kittens have released a line of sweets and they are amazing! They are available in Selfridges at the moment. There are four flavours: Peaches and Cream, Eton Mess, Apple and Elderflower & Fizzy Watermelon (which I didn't choose). The sweets themselves are simply delicious!
I hope you enjoyed this haul!
Lots of love
