Mini Haul & Bronzer Update

Hi all, 

Thanks to all my new followers and welcome :)

I just thought I'd post a really quick haul for some things that I've picked up recently. My Mum went out on Friday and bought me a few treats for my holiday, she got me some beige linen trousers from River Island along with two sets of pink pearl earings, ANDDDD these lovely sandals from Office. I love, love, love them and now that the sun is finally shining, I can't wait to get my feet into them. 

I went out today to change a pair of flip flops that my boyfriend got in Westfield, London last week, because he needs a bigger size, unfortunately, they didn't have them locally, so I thought I'd pop into the shopping centre and have a browse. 

I went into Claires Accessories and bought some simple silver hooped earings and the other bits I got were from Superdrug. I got two of the Beauty UK eyeshadow pallets as I've seen them mentioned on various peoples blogs recently and the feedback has been quite good. I got number 1 and number 3. They each have 10 eyeshadows in them and cost £2.99 each, bargain.  Pallet number 1 has pastel shades and number 3 has bolder shades which all have silver flecks of glitter in them. 

I also got a Collection 2000 nail polish in 232 Pink Passion. I have been desperately trying to find a nice bubblegum pink polish in the past week, and have ended up with several pinks, but none of them being the shade I wanted them to be. So I'm hoping this is going to be the one. Lastly, I picked up a GOSH 134 Darling lipstick. 

In the last entry, I said that I'd update you on the two bronzers I got - the Barry M and the Prestige. I've been using them for a few days now and I have to say I haven't been overly impressed with the Prestige in St. Tropez. I put it on one day and my face just looked dirty. I really wasn't expecting that, because to look at it, it's a beautiful bronze colour. However, I really want it to be a great product, so I'm going to stick with it, play around with it, and try and figure out a way to make it work for me. The Barry M bronzer has been used very sparingly because I have very pale skin, and assumed it would be far too dark for me. 

I have been using a very small amount to contour my face, and I have cheekbones! So I am pretty pleased with the Barry M at the moment, and am looking forward to experimenting a bit more with it next week when I am in Egypt and have a bit of colour. 

Thats pretty much all my updates for now, I have a few pictures from this weekend that I may post up later. 



  1. I've been using the Gosh darling lipstick alot lately. It's a good everyday color, goes with everything!
