Mini Haul...

Hello to all my lovely little followers out there and to anyone else who wants to have a nosey at what iv been buying lately. I haven't blogged in what seems like forever!! What with me and the boyfriend moving into our own place (post to come!) and me starting a new job in the space of a weekend, its safe to say that this month has truly been busiest and most hectic month of my life! (well at least this year!)

I'm currently sat in my pj's in my own living room on a sunny Saturday morning (feeling a little worse for wear after a good ol' family knees up last night lol!) finally finding time to blog! :)

First on my little shopping rampage was Primark! I love a good Primark binge, I hadn't been in so long and ended up spending like £50!

The first thing I picked up was this absolute BEAUT of  a shirt! How pretty?! its a really soft, chiffon, sheer and creamy coloured shirt with the cutest pug print on it and the gold button detailing is to die for! Its a total jupe for THAT Zara shirt! (the one I was dying to get my hands on for ages but was sold out everywhere!) as soon as my eyes zoomed in on this, I instantly grabbed it, I was so chuffed! lol

I also picked up 2 dresses, they're both 'mullet' style dresses, the style that seem to be everywhere at the moment, one is just a plain little black dress with sort of cut off sleeves (not really good at describing!) again in a chiffon type material with a little belt around the waist, and the other was again sleeveless, the top half is black with a brown belt around the middle and the bottom half a muted leopard print, perfect for summer bbq's or summer evening drinks (if we ever get a proper summer!)

Lastly I picked up this gorgeous bag! Again it was one of those items that when I saw it I didn't even think twice, it went in the basket straight away lol! Primark did a clutch very similar to this a few years ago which I of course purchased, but id used mine so much that it broke :( so when I saw this, I couldn't believe my luck! ...I do have one very similar from Topshop, but my Topshop one has silver stud's, is slightly bigger and is 10 times the price!!! ...this bag is a steal at just £6!

(For anyone who wants to know, the shirt was £12 and both my dresses were about £15 each)

Of course a shopping haul wouldn't be complete with out some beauty products! ...

I went to Debenhams and finally got my hands on the new YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation, iv used it once so far, I like the consistency of it, but I think I need to use it a few more times before I make up my mind!

I also raided the Origins counter! I wanted a sample of their oil free moisturiser and there was no assistant to be found! there was however, a jar full of sample pots left out on the side! ;) so I was naughty and raided the counter for some goodies lol I walked away with, of course, the sample I went for, a sample of the oil free moisturiser, I also picked up a sample of the vita zing eye cream, the overnight intense moisture surge mask thing and a sample of the origins spot remover gel :) all in all, I think you'll agree a pretty good raid! lol

Also whilst on my spree in debenhams, i picked up some of my fave foundation, the Clinique Even Better Foundation, a friend recommended it to me and after seeing Tanya Burr from Pixi2Woo use it in one of her tutorials I instantly ran out and got a sample... conclusion, love it!!

On the last leg of my shopping trip I stopped in Boots and picked up so things i had been eyeing up for a while!

The first 2 things I picked up were the 17 Instant Glow in Bronze (I swatched it a couple of weeks ago and fell in love! I think I'm going to have to go back and purchase the pink version!) ...and a L'Oreal Shine Chrome Eyeshadow in Rose Gold, i saw the colour of this and thought it looked so beautiful and when I read the name, its in the shade Rose Gold, I was sold! (I'm a sucker for anything rose gold at the moment!)

The other things I picked up while in Boots was the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer, I swatch it everytime I go in and this time I finally took the plunge and bought it, I'm so glad I did! (also the packaging is amazing, loving the rose gold pump!) I also picked up the L'oreal Telescopic Mascara, ViviannaDoesMakeup raves on about this all the time and Boots finally had some in stock so I snatched it up... and last but not least, you cant walk into Boots and not purchase an Essie nail polish lol after watching ViviannaDoesMakeup's youtube vid showcasing her glorious Essie collection, I picked up the shade 'Sugar Daddy', its a pretty pink in the bottle but comes out very sheer on the nails, I'm not sure if I like it yet! After spying Essie's new summer brights collection... I'm defo picking up Bikini So Teeny next! lol

Now that iv started to spend money on myself again, I just cant stop lol! ...I may or may not have made a cheeky Feelunique order the other night lol... I feel another haul post coming soon!! lol
