Shopping Haul (Brace Yourself)

Yesterday I mentioned that I had a rather guilty spending spree when my friend Lyndsey came down for the day (post here).

I also promised to show you guys what I bought so here you go....


Did I mention I love Lush? 

Dragons Egg Bath Bomb - £3.35 - BUY
This smells like every sweet you ever loved as a child! Its like a combination of lemon sherbert and those Love Heart sweets.

Seanik Shampoo Bar - £5.50 - BUY
I actually mentioned here about wanting to try the Shampoo bar after my boyfriend bought one and actually recommended them to me HA! Although I'll admit I havent tried it yet, but I've been reassured if I don't like it, he'll take this one off my hands!


Ark for me has always been one of those shops I didnt really venture too until I was at uni. Its affordable (although some of the brands are cheaper labels at higher prices) and always got that touch of alternative style which its more my thing. The downside is alot of their sizes are quite misleading as they stock a variety of labels so you need to try them on!
I'm a size 12/14 and I'd like to expect I fit in a size Large so when I don't, I do question the sizing slightly.

However, I did buy these babes..
Red Tarten Skater Dress - £12 - BUY
As mentioned, being a slightly bigger girl skater dresses are an absolute godsend so I couldnt resist this!

Pug Wash Bag - £14.99 - BUY
Okay, I'll admit perhaps a tad too much money but LOOK AT ITS FACE!!!  I mentioned all about our Jug Winstom the other week (here) so although he's only half pug, I can't resist anything that looks like him! I also got the mini purse version for Christmas so I've almost got the whole set now!
We're going on holiday in 2 weeks so I intend to take this with us!


Lip Bullet in There She Goes - £8 - BUY
I've tried a few bits from Topshops make up range and I've been suitably impressed with a lot of it and I've heard great things about the lip bullets. This shade is pretty nude meets a light coral. I want to try start wearing more lipsticks but I don't want to stand out at work so I'm trying I opt for more neutrals tones.

New Look

Black and White Cami - £12.99 - BUY
I've been eyeing this up for a few weeks so finally bought it as a summer addition. They also do it in a pink and a blue so theres plenty of choice.

Black Skort - £17.99 - BUY
This year I want to have key pieces in my wardrobe that are not only great as go-to items but also on trend. I wasn't going to get these originally but I know how big they're going to be huge this year! Plus I'm gonna try get them into my work uniform when I can ;)


Real Techniques - Foundation Brush - £9.99 - BUY
Real Techniques - Blush Brush - £9.99 - BUY
Boots No7 - Lash and Brow Pro - £8.00 - BUY

I  actually didn't intend to buy these. Honest. I originally only wanted a spoolie as my old horrid eyebrow brush got melted in the sun (I might post about this issue I have one day) but I saw the 3for2 offer in Boots and couldn't resist. I've finally become a Real techniques girl! 

Urban Decay Naked Basic Palette - £22 - BUY
Who hasn't got one of these in the blogger world by now?!  I've decided to just start on the basic palette rather than forking out £37 on one of the other Naked sets just yet. I'm actually more excited to teach myself the looks I can create with this!

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in Shade 8: Pink in Confidence-  £25 - BUY

My complete splurge of the year so far but my god I love it. The best part of working in a shopping centre means I get to use my lunch breaks as testers a lot of the time to look round products and  actually give them enough thought before buying and I've been eyeing up the YSL counter for far too long.

Have you had guilty shopping sprees lately or tried any of these products?



  1. I need to get myself a Topshop lip bullet, they look really nice. Very jealous of your YSL lipstick! I was going to get one the other week but changed my mind at the last minute haha.

    1. I can't wait to try that Lip Bullet, I've heard amazing things about them!!

  2. Love all your purchases, especially the pug bag! So cute!x
