With 20% student discount and a voucher to spend, how could I not splurge on a couple of new Nars products from ASOS??!! Although ASOS doesn’t carry the best range of make-up and beauty, it does have Nars, and a good collection of Nars at that. You might not get every single shade of eyeshadow or whatever, but they carry most products, and you get the free delivery over £20 as a bonus. The two products I went for were one of the new primers,…Continue Reading “New & NARS”

Holidaying in America is always disastrous for my bank account, even when you don’t consider flights, accommodation, and food. That’s because I always, always buy way too much when I’m there. Everything’s just so different, and there are so many things available that just aren’t available in the UK, so any shopping trip whilst I’m over there basically turns into a supermarket sweep (if the supermarket were a mall, obvs). You guys know that I’m mad on make-up and beauty products, so here’s an overview…Continue Reading “HUGE Beauty Haul – USA Edition”

I did one of these posts a while back, and considering that I’ve been spending a fair bit in MAC lately (both time and money!), I thought it was time for a second instalment. MAC does so many different varieties of cosmetics that I think there’s something for everyone, but there are those few products that I think will work for basically anyone and everyone. Here are a couple more that I’ve come across on my MAC adventures! First up has to be the Mineralise…Continue Reading “MAC Cosmetics Essentials (No 2)”

We’re going back a while now, but when I was in Barcelona about a month ago, I went and spent waaaaaaay too much money in Sephora. There’s a huge Sephora in a little shopping centre which opens out onto the Plaça de Catalunya. It’s so big that it’s actually downstairs, with a whole level to itself. I was really impressed with the other beauty shops around that area (Rituals, Kiko etc), but Sephora was always going to be on my wishlist for a European holiday!…Continue Reading “Barcelona Sephora Haul”

Why I haven’t got round to doing this post yet, I really couldn’t say. We went to Brighton for the weekend as it was my birthday, so we’re talking about 6 weeks ago now! As before, this is a bit of a mash-up post, a combination of diary entry and my recommendations for what to do and where to go if you’re ever in Brighton. Read on if you’re a fan of the staycation, the weekend break, or if you’re just a bit nosy! As well…Continue Reading “This is… Brighton”

Korres is a brand which I’ve never tried before, and also one which I don’t hear an awful lot about online. That being said, when I saw that Feelunique had 20% I knew that it was a brand I wanted to explore. The shower gels especially are more than I would usually pay, even with the discount, but I’m in to bodycare at the moment and thought this was the best time to give them a try. Carry on reading to check out what I…Continue Reading “Korres Haul”

It was my birthday this weekend so I’ve been trying really hard to not buy anything in the aftermath. This is extremely difficult for me though, so I thought I’d do this haul midweek to cheer me up a bit! This is from my trip to Westfield shopping centre in London after Christmas, where I picked up some great stuff from shops which you often can’t find within about 80 miles of my house (major downside of living in the admittedly very pretty countryside). On with…Continue Reading “Westfield Haul”

This is yet another belated post. I seem to be good at these, I just don’t ever seem to have the time when something has just happened! This time I’m harking back to a couple of weeks ago, when Matt and I popped into Oxford for the day. It was the day after they had switched the Christmas lights on, so everything was sparkly and Christmassy, and they even had a mini Christmas market set up for the weekend. I mainly wanted to go into…Continue Reading “Oxford in Lights”

I’ve been a huge fan of MAC ever since I bought my first eyeshadow from the Brighton store (it was an individual shadow in the shade Soba). Unfortunately, I find that almost everything they sell is a tad on the expensive side. A MAC purchase can’t really be that spontaneous, it has to be a bit more thought out than your average Boots haul. That’s my other problem – I can go in and pick up 2 items in MAC, and the total will come…Continue Reading “MAC Cosmetics Essentials (No 1)”

I’ve been meaning to do this post for about 2 weeks now, so I thought it was time to get it done and dusted. I’ve picked up a few bits and pieces from Boots over the last few weeks, and I thought I’d just pop them all together in this post. I’ve been trying out most of them so it’s a bit of a mini-review mixed in with a haul post, hope you enjoy! The first thing I picked up, and what I actually went…Continue Reading “November Drugstore Make Up Haul”
