Hey guys! It seems like I haven't done a haul in ages, because truth is I haven't really bought much this year. There haven't been many makeup/beauty products that have really caught my eye (except the Hourglass compacts, but they are so expensive), and I know a lot of other people have thought this too - clothes just seem to be so much more interesting this year! I have bought a few bits over the last couple of months, meaning I thought that it would be a great opportunity to do a haul post, especially since I have found myself really short on blog post ideas.
I'll start off with clothes first! All of the clothes are actually from the ASOS sale, because it seemed really good this time so I couldn't resist getting a few things. The first thing to go into my basket was a really pretty Tan Scallop Edge Satchel that I have had my eye on for ages, plus it was a bargain at only £10! It's actually very spacious, even though it may not look it, and it's a lovely quality.
Next is the gorgeous Bird And Heart Print Skater Dress (this is sadly sold out now, but I have left the link in if you'd like to see some better pictures)! I have been trying to wear more dresses this year, and it's going really well, so I've been gradually increasing my collection of dresses and thought that this would make a nice edition, especially at just £8.50. I got the dress in the size 8 as it was the only size left, however it's a little looser than I'd like so it would have been good to get a size 6 if they had it - oh well!
The last thing from ASOS is a New Look Twist Bikini Top, which cost £6! I had been on the look out for just a basic black bikini top for quite a while (I had some bikini bottoms that had nothing to match with), and when I saw this it looked perfect. It's a very pretty twist/ruffle top, that isn't too small, I just wish that I was going on holiday somewhere this year to wear it!
Onto beauty orientated bits! I bought three things when Boots had their 3 for 2 beauty offer on back in April, which I had kept my eye on since they were released and had eagerly waited for the offer to come back on. The first thing I went for was the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure (which I reviewed in my last post), because I had heard so much hype surrounding them and wanted to put one to the test myself! Demure is a lovely nude pink shade, with a slight silver glimmer in it, so if you'd like to hear more make sure you read my review. I also got another lip product - the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Bashful! I had troubles trying to decide between Bashful and Nudist, but decided on Bashful as it was that little bit more pink toned. The third thing I bought was the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Studio Gel Eyeliner in Intense Black! This has had hype surrounding it probably since I started blogging, but for some reason I had just never bought it. I've only used it a couple of times since I got it, however from what I have tried it seems really good, albeit quite hard to remove! For the three products it cost me £15.98 which I think is pretty great value for money.
I noticed that Bank had all of their Barry M products reduced online to only £1, so I was definitely obliged to pick out a few products! I ended up getting three of their nail polishes, all of which are blue or green for Summer! The first one that I knew I was definitely getting was the Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Sugar Apple. This shade was from their Spring Gelly collection and is a gorgeous shade of mint green, which reminds me of Essie's Mint Candy Apple polish! When I tried Rose Hip, which is also from the Spring range, it did disappoint me quite a bit as I didn't find the colour that great and it looked quite streaky, so I hope that this one is better. The other two are both from the Barry M Aquarium Collection, which came out in March this year! The two shades that I got were Pacific, a metallic ocean blue shade, and Arabian, a metallic emerald green with gold shimmer. I thought that £3 for all three of these polishes was an amazing bargain, especially since they are £3.99 each in Boots!
Finally is the Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter from Debenhams! I know that a lot of people love the Korres Lip Butters, and I had a £5 voucher to use at Debenhams, so I decided to treat myself to the pomegranate version. I've only used it once so far, but I must really soon!
That is what I have bought recently! It doesn't actually look like a lot however I've come away with quite a few things that I have wanted for a while. I wish that I was going on holiday this Summer though, because I have seen so many pretty things that would be no use in England, but perfect for somewhere hot! I'd love to know what you've got your eye on at the moment, as it may give me some ideas on what I should buy.
What have you bought recently for Summer?
