Haul

Primark, Bodycare and New Look
Haul


- As you some of you ladies know, I have been having a very stressful time trying to make my very poorly laptop edit and upload videos to my channel. After having a few questions on Twitter as to why I haven't uploaded any videos in a while I felt I should let you know why. I honestly feel so rubbish about not being able to make videos for you all because as much as you like watching them, I like making them! But as I said before I will be getting a MacBook Pro for my birthday in about a months time it will make the whole editing and uploading process so so so so much better. - I CAN'T wait :-) So by the beginning of December you can expect to see videos back up on my channel. :-) *Yay*

I know you all LOVE a good haul as I do too, so instead of wasting the opportunity I thought it would be a nice idea to 'blog haul. I just picked up a few bits and bobs from town today.




New Look

Photobucket
Dress - £21.00

As you will probably know my birthday is on the horizon and I ALWAYS feel that such an occasion needs to be celebrated in style! Having been and still are on the look out for the ULTIMATE evening dress for my birthday 'do with my friends I felt it was time to look for something a little less glitzy but still intended for the evening for my family house party [yes my mum has gone wild inviting all the fam round for a good old knee's up] I went into New Look with this in mind and I found this little skater dress babe in the 'AX Paris' line.

I think it has a real 1960's edge to it. This photograph on the hanger doesn't do it justice. It is my perfect fit, body hugging around my small top half and more fluid around my tummy PERFECT! I can't wait to wear it with some burnt orange wedges that I have and the jewelry below.

Earrings - £3 - Necklace - £2

All the jewelry in New Look were in the sale today so I was in my element. Having found 'the dress' I needed some pieces to match. Some may disagree but I LOVE royal purple and orange together so these feather earrings were the perfect statement for a statement dress. This 'semi precious' pendant chain also looks really nice with the dress as it sits just at the waist line, subtle but seen!



Primark
Photobucket
£17.00
- I absolutely love this dress! It's right up my street with the delicate, sheer balloon sleeves and the gold studs. It's the perfect mix of vamp glam and romantic delicacy.

Although I think it's a little bit long for me

[it sits just to my knee's and at 5 foot 3, it makes me appear even smaller than I actually am] so, what I do is hike it up with a skinny leopard print waist belt and bingo i'm instantly taller ;).

Photobucket
£2

- I had been eyeing this BEAUTIFUL bracelet up for some time when I first saw it in the Leeds store. However, I never bought it and ended up thinking about it afterwards and wishing I had! ALL HAIL THE PRIMARK BARGAIN BUCKET! Low and behold in the sale was my Jaguar bracelet! I will admit it's not everybody's cup of tea but I love eccentric, and controversial pieces of jewelry, particularly bracelets like this layered up.




Bodycare


Photobucket
As a skincare newbie so to speak I have gotten into the whole 'cleanse' 'tone' and 'moisturise' procedure, I have noticed dramatic differences with my skin since sticking to a good skincare routine! For 89p [yes you read correctly ha ha] I picked up this Derma v10 day cream. It is such a soft and light souffle that sits really nicely underneath my foundation.

Photobucket

My skin feels really nourished and truth be told, I don't really notice any difference between how my skin feels after using my old trusty favourite Clinque 'Dramatically Different Moisturiser.' I don't like a heavy moisturiser on my face and this completely ticks all my boxes, I think I may go back and buy the night cream too. If you are looking for a REALLY cheap alternative to the higher end brand moisturisers give this a go for the price you can't go wrong!

Photobucket

Ever had that horribly limp, lifeless and super, super soft hair after you've washed it? I HATE it! I always prefer texture, and volume in my hair otherwise I think I just look stupid. I was completely out of my Loreal mousse and needed a quick fix! For £1! I got this extra hold 400ml bottle of 'Studio 2000' professional styling mousse with vitamin B and extra conditioner for shine. I used it this morning and surprisingly it is really good. I figured because it was cheap and the fact it was for 'extra' volume it would be sticky and clog my hair up. The light mousse gave me plenty of volume. CHECK. I will definitely re purchase is place of my £4 Loreal alternative.

Can't quite part with £13.50 for a MAC lippy? No, this month I couldn't either but I was craving a new pink-nude lipstick as my Maybelline 'Ambre Rose' had been used up. Housed in Revlon lippy rip off packaging I found 'Melba' [what is it with that name for everything!] It hit the spot for what I wanted and it is so creamy and it lasts for quite a while and for £2 again, it's a handbag staple! It's a great dupe for MAC's 'Creme De Nude' and 'Myth'.

Photobucket

I have been using the Crest Whitening strips that my lovely Grandma brought me home from America, if anybody has noticed my teeth! I will be doing a full review and post on that after I have finished the treatment course in another week or so! :-) I haven't even completed a week yet and I can definitely see the results.

I also bought some really boring things like a new tanning mit, facial wipes and some deodorant but that's all boring really isn't it?

Anyway, hope you all have a good weekend girls  and please link your blogs below so I can have a peep at them! :-)

  3. I'm also using the Crest White Strips (in fact, I've got them on my teeth this second!) I'm only on day three but haven't noticed any difference yet. Unfortunately, I only got 7 days' worth of strips and I'm not sure whether that's really enough. How long are you going to do yours for?
