Haul: A Bit of This and a Bit of That...






Crop Top: Quiz
Necklace: Miss Selfridge
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins
T-Shirt: Miss Selfridge
Ojon Conditioner

Nars Liquid Eyeliner
Clarins Fake Tan
Pearl Drops Teeth Whitening Gel

Books: Sophie Kinsella 'I've Got Your Number' and Antoine Laurain 'The President's Hat'

These are some of the items that I've treated myself over the last month.

Clothes
Quiz is not normally I shop I ever go in but this crop top caught my eye when I was passing the Quiz concession in Debenhams. I love the colour and the texture of the material- it's sort of neon speckled- very different and I look forward to teaming it with disco pants and high tops or a midi skirt.

I'm really into chunky necklaces at the moment and love this one from Miss Selfridge. I wore it the very same day I bought it and have hardly taken it off since! It goes with everything and adds a stylish touch to any plain top.

These high top trainers are gorgeous! I love the colour! I couldn't resist them when in Dorothy Perkins the other day. They look fab with leggings and are comfy too :)

This grey t-shirt from Miss Selfridge is a great addition to my wardrobe as it goes with everything and, although it's plain enough to team with statement trousers/ leggings/ skirts, the faux leather sleeves make it more interestng.

Beauty
I've heard so many good things about Ojon hair products that I treated myself to this conditioner as a reward for completing some work. As I colour my hair regularly I want to show it a bit of TLC with this colour care conditioner. I will review it when I've been using it for a while :)

I'm sick of my cellulite and wobbly thighs so I've decided to do something about them in time for summer, starting with this firming lotion from Cocoa Butter Formula- I'll let you know how it goes!

Surprising as this may be, as I never leave the house without eyeliner on, I have never owned a liquid eyeliner! As a lover of Nars, I decided to give their brown liquid eyeliner a go as it has a pen end which looks easier to apply than a brush- they're on Asos for anyone that wants to buy them online. Again, review to follow.

I love Clarins's fake tans and this one smells gorgeous (like cocoa butter!) so decided to give it a go instead of my normal Clarins one.

These Pearl Drop teeth whitening gel caught my eye while I was in Boots the other day. You simply rub the gel on your teeth just before bed and they are supposed to get whiter. An interesting concept, I hope it works!

This lip scrub is only made from natural ingredients and was only £2.50- less than half the price of the Lush ones! It is mint chocolate chip flavour- gorgeous- and is from a small beauty company called Bimble based in Yorkshire that I came across at a craft fair a few weeks ago. I love organic products and the fact that it's fairtrade, tastes/ smells amazing and is cheap, is a huge bonus!

Books
Finally, Sophie Kinsella's book 'I've Got your Number' is one that I've had saved in my Amazon basket for over a year now. It suddently dropped to only £2.85 the other day so I bought it immediately! I love Sophie Kinsella's books, they're always funny and light-hearted but gripping at the same time.

'The President's Hat' is a book that was recommended to me by my sister. It is about a man who dines at the next table to the president, who leaves his hat behind at the end of the meal. The man decides to take the hat and keep it for himself, however this is no ordinary hat, and his life begins to change as the hat works its magic!

Has anyone else been on any shopping sprees recently? What have you bought? Has anyone tried or got any of the items that I've bought?
