Sales shopping haul

Hello lovelies!

A few days ago I went sales shopping and I managed to pick up lots of good bargains. Here’s what I bought:


Studio makeup brushes set: I don’t own a lot of make up brushes, so I decided to expand my collection. I saw this 12 piece set in Superdrug, containing a variety of different make up brushes. I can’t wait to have a play with them and see how good they are at applying my make up.

Lacome La vie est belle gift set: Ever since I discovered a sample sent of La vie est belle, I fell in love with it’s sweet scent and was eager to own a bottle. After looking on the Boots website I came across this gift set and I was hoping there would be some in stock when I went shopping. To my delight I found gift sets in Boots and purchased one immediately. As well as the perfume, it also came with some mascara and body cream which I’m eager to try out!

Seventeen Foundation: I have a feeling my other foundation is starting to run out so I decided it would be best to purchase I new one. I went for this foundation as it’s supposed to have great coverage and be just the right shade for us pale skinned gals (I’m super pale!)

W7 beauty blender: This is probably a beauty sin that will make all you beauty bloggers gasp, I apply with foundation with my hands. However I’ve decided to finally bite the bullet and see what it’s like using a blender. Who knows, this could be a beauty revolution for me!

La colour lipstick shade caramel cream: My favourite nude lipstick (MUA Fawn Fancy) is getting close to the end so a new nude lipstick was needed. I saw a review of this lipstick on Sally’s blog and it sounded like a pretty good lipstick. Hopefully it will be just as good as my old lipstick.

La colour lipstick shade shade strawberry:
This shade is called “Strawberry” so I obviously had to buy it (if you haven’t noticed by now, I love anything strawberry patterned/ related!). I’m also on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick for me so I’m hoping this one will be a winner.


Black boots: Whilst I got a pair of boots for Christmas, I needed a new pair of black boots. I saw these on sale in Primark and decided these would be perfect for me! I love the Dr Martens style of these boots and hopefully they’ll last me until next winter.

Pinafore: Also in Primark I saw this cute pinafore on sale, which I couldn’t resist picking up! I love the flowery pattern and the style is very me. I can’t wait to wear it.

Black lacy top: I received a New Look gift card of my auntie and I saw this top in the New Look sale. I love lacy tops (I own another one from New Look which is white) so this one was definitely coming home with me. I think this top will be ideal for nights out.

2 tops: Whilst not in any sales I couldn’t resist picking up these 2 tops from a charity shop (ever since I started university, I’ve started shopping in charity shops WAY more). These tops were originally from River Island and I love the vintage feeling I get from these tops!


Books: I bought these 3 books all for different reasons!

Goldfish Boy: I saw a brilliant review of this book on Nicole’s blog, so I wanted to read it for myself and see what it was like. I love books that give an accurate representation of mental health.

What’s a girl gotta do: I own 2 Holly Bourne books and I’ve loved them both. This book is all about Feminism (YES!!!), so I can’t wait to see how feminism is portrayed in this book.

The Black Key: This is the final book in the trilogy that I’ve been reading. This is the book which comes after the white rose (I read the sequel in 2 days!) I’m eager to find out the ending of this book and I’m sure it’ll be just as good as the previous 2 books.

I always love shopping, especially if it’s sales shopping. Did you pick up any good bargains in the sales?

I'm so glad to see you picked up the GoldFish boy! You will love it!
Also can you let me know how you get on with the beauty blender because I still apply foundation with my hands and have been thinking about getting one of these! Xxx

I love a little sale!
I think I will be adding "GoldFish Boy" and "What's A Girl Gotta Do?" to my list of books to read.

What a great haul! I especially like the pinafore. I've been super into them lately, as they work for summer and winter. Living in Chicago, winter is a major concern! Can't wait to hear how you like the books!
