The recent haul

I’ve been shopping again! As its christmas time, I feel like its a great time to give to others, and a great time to give to yourself… Here’s a peak at some of the things that I’ve acquired recently.

My collection of pink items is growing! I weirdly vowed to stick to more black and white items as I’m still debating as to whether or not I should paint my room white, but the pastel keeps creeping its way back into my life… My mac and keyboard are pink too!


Firstly I purchased these pink makeup brushes from ebay. They’re so pretty I don’t even want to use them… The pink gradient adds to the beauty of them. They’re really soft on your skin too. I’m yet to try them out with makeup as you can see, but in the pack of 32  there are really small to really large brushes, eye shadow applicators, a mascara brush as well as an eyebrow brush. Pretty handy. And it’s only £8.99 from ebay.


The perfume that I can’t live without is back! I thought I would stock up on this one again. It has a very sweet smell, which I can only compare to that of candy floss but in small dosages its really something lovely. As It’s christmas, you may want to gift this item to somebody. The pack my mum bought me includes a body cream and double ended lipgloss which I can’t keep out of my bag!


I can’t live without this body butter now, it’s perfect. It leaves your skin feeling super soft for about 24 hours after you’ve applied it, and it comes with different key ingredients and smells depending on your fancy. I’m lusting after the apple one!


After I ranted about embracing yours and other peoples body types, a week later I stumbled across these incredible jeans. Thank you Zara! No more having to wear a belt with my jeans, as they sit on my waist and hug my curves perfectly! Their skinny ankles can be rolled up twice too, and pair perfectly with my other new purchase:

The New balance 574

I’d been lusting after the perfect pair of street wear trainers for a while, and after seeing some lovely ones on muse charlotte martin, I knew I had to own some of these! After a long search far and wide, I found some on foot asylum for £70. Comfy and stylish- Money well spent.

The Velvet plunge dress – RARE LONDON

Another issue I mentioned was that I couldn’t find a dress that fitted me well for the Christmas Ball that Luisa & I were due to attend. I finally did, however it came a day too late for me to wear. Bad luck, huh? It sits on my chest well and clings properly to my waist. I can’t wait to show you how I’ve styled it!

The wonder bra Ultimate Plunge Bra

The perfect bra to accompany the above dress, and other deep plunging, strapless items! It was definitely worth the £35 spent as it supports, pushes up and doesn’t fall down when you don’t have the straps attached to them. I got mine from JD Williams.

The perfect reds

L’oreal l’extraordinaire liquid lipstick by color riche – RED RUBY OPERA

This high shine liquid lipgloss/lipstick hybrid is brilliant. I went out in search of the perfect red colour as I’ve had such a nightmare with the other brands that I tried out. This one is great- it’s creamy, non-sticky, non smudging and stays on all day long (as long as you don’t rub it off.. ha.). This is £8.99 from boots.

L’oreal color riche lipstick – BLAKE

The second one I was quite sceptical about, because the swatch came out very bright when I tried it on my hand in store. I braved it and bought it anyway, bravely ignoring the fact that it’s a lipstick that suits blake lively, and our skin tones are nothing alike… That being said, I love it! It’s the first bright lipstick that I actually have worn out, and have braved it to school a couple of times too. It is the lipstick that I’m wearing in the pictures above. You can get this for only £6.99.


Looking to find something for my upcoming fruit smoothies, I grabbed this plastic jar with a hole in the lid from ebay for £7.99.
These are my recent purchases! I’m very much in love with them. Which item is your favourite?
