I realise that I said I'd post up this haul last week, but it's been mega busy here, I went back to work, had my holiday washing to do, not to mention sorting out my house, because my brother had been left alone for a week and it was a state! Boys really can't look after themselves, can they? And on top of that, I had a job interview with a modelling agency, for a position of a shoot coordinator, basically running all the photoshoots that they do, they want me to start training on Saturday, so we'll see how it goes.
Anyway, on to the main purpose of this post, the haul. When I got back from Egypt, I had some of my spending money left over, so straight away I got online and bought myself some make up (I had to make up for not getting any in duty free, didn't I?!)
I discovered a discount make up website, (here) so I got a few things off there first.
Too Faced duo eyeshadows
L-R: Ooh & Aah, Lovey Dovey & George & Weezie
I was really pleased with these eyeshadows, the pigmentation is gorgeous, and they only cost me £2.92 each!
Ooh & Aah:
George & Weezie:
I also bought three lipsticks, two were from the magic make up site, a brand I've never heard of, W7, but they were only cheap, so I thought I'd give them a try and the last one was Barry M.
L-R: W7 Lollipop, W7 Coconut Ice & Barry M's 147 Peachy Pink
Top to bottom: Lollipop, Coconut Ice & Peachy Pink
Lollipop is a peachy pink colour with flecks of silver sparkles in it, Coconut Ice is a soft frosty pale pink and Peachy Pink by Barry M is, well a peachy pink. It's a bit too bright for me, but I usually wear it on top of the 101 or Gosh Darling, and it looks lovely then.
I've been going a bit mad on nail varnish lately, the sun is shining, which means I can have some fun with my toes...
L-R: Black, Shocking Pink, Coral, Orchid, Limited edition pink (got this free using lollipop26's free nail varnish code on the website), Bright Purple & Marine Blue (this was a clearance nail varnish and it only cost me £1.50)
That was everything I got last week, and I've been shopping twice since! Ooops. I went on Sunday with my best friend Nicola and my boyfriend Jack. I got three dresses, and was feeling a bit guilty, but then it turns out I didn't like one, so that's got to go back, and one didn't fit, so my Mum bought it off me. So now I don't feel so bad, because the one I kept was from Oasis and only £20, it's just a basic blue tunic dress for the summer.
Then this morning, I dropped Jack to work, and wanted to have a look in TK Max, but it didn't open for half an hour, so I wasted some time in New Look, I was sooo close to buying the pink jelly gladiators. I had them in my hand the whole time. Jack absolutely hates them and would have killed me. I tried one on and thought it looked cute, but a bit bulky, I have really thin feet and am inbetween a 5 and 6, so when I tried the other one on too, they just looked too big on my feet, so I put them back, sigh.
I ended up getting this gorgeous oversized tunic:
And these blue suede shoes:
I have been looking for blue shoes for a while now to go with a dress that I haven't worn yet which has blue flowers on it, so was pretty happy when I saw these. Finally when TK Max opened I popped in there, I wanted to look for some nice storage boxes, but spotted some St. Tropez Everyday so got that instead!
I got both the daily body moisturiser, which was £7.99 for 200ml, and the daily face moisturiser which cost £3.99 for 50ml. The packaging states that "EVERYDAY is an advanced high performance body moisturiser which gradually builds a light tan. It's created by St. Tropez, the tanning experts you trust to get it right".
I've only used St. Tropez when I've gone to the salon to have it applied for me, so thought I'd give the everyday tanner a go before splashing out on the expensive ones. Has anyone ever used this stuff? It has a slight smell to it, but it's nothing unpleasant, so I'm hoping the smell won't be too bad when applied. I'm going to apply some today, so I'll keep you posted on how it goes. For now, I'm off, still got lots of sorting out in my room to do, holiday backlog :(
