Fashion Haul | Bohemian Style Inspired


So I have been doing little shopping trips so all the products I'm going to show you some of the bits I have been buying- it has not been brought all at the same time.

I have really been loving the Boho Style so I have been collecting the bits and bits for my summer wardrobe.

Lets Start...

Primark has some really nice pieces in at the moment so I would go and check it out if you have the chance. I got this beautiful playsuit for only £10! It has a small slit along the centre of the neckline as well as embroidered detail on the neck and chest. Also it has trimming along the arm holes and pockets.

Also from Primark, this dress which I believe was £5.  The material is silky has some stretch to it so its a comfortable wear. I would personally wear this as a day dress.

Topshop is really loving the 70s at the moment and have some lovely statement pieces. I got this shirt which is very sheer however it has the same neck line as the playsuit as well as small tassels around the bat wing sleeves.

Also I got a skort in the sale for £5!! I love the print and the blue/cream combination. It a way to introduce pattern and print into a look without it being overpowering.

H&M at the moment has my fashion heart. It has a mixture of all the trends without the designer price tag. The shorts have a suede texture to them. They are quite short on my legs so I would wear them with flat shoes. The top is from the H&M Coachella range so I don't know if its still I stores but I have seen some similar. Its a crop top and it has small panels of see through flowers. It has a tie neckline and on the end of the sleeves and body, it has elastic.

Boohoo is the best online shop for me as I know what material they use so I know my size I am. I should really have a look at the other shops but I'm scared to be honest. But I got this shorts which are high waisted. They do have pockets but this make the shorts mis-shaped.

Next is this dress , its in a similar style to the Primark one however its a different material. I love the print and the mix of greens and purples.

So that's some of the bits that I have been buying for my summer wardrobe, let me know what trends you have been loving.

Drug Store Haul


So usually I would be writing my favourites for the month but I haven't been loving anything especially this month. But I have been shopping so I thought I would do a haul of the bits I got makeup wise.

So lets start...

From Boots, I got two lipsticks from the Seventeen range. I never have really gone to the Seventeen counter but there was a sale on the items. So the first lipstick is Stay Pout in the shade Date Night. Its a classic red telephone box shade.  I would say its a buildable matte so it can be a sheen at first. The only thing is the packaging, at the top of lid there is a fake gem. It makes the whole thing look tacky in a way.

The another lipstick is from the same range and its the shade Rule Breaker. Again the formula is the same , the shade is a dark red with a purple under tone. The packaging is the same again.

Another product is from the brand , Seventeen and its the Stay Time Pressed Powder. I haven't tried it but I got it to throw in my hand bag. Again with the packaging it has no mirror and saldy I didn't know this before hand! Come on Seventeen! Sort your packaging out!!

From NYX , I got Iced Mocha and I got it as its meant to be a dupe of MAC Satin Taupe so I'm excited to try it out. It looks like a good everyday shade that I could just sweep over the whole lid.

So that's everything drug store but I have recently got some high end but I haven't got enough it write if that makes sense.

Let me know any high end dupes as I'm looking for them.

I'm Back and with my Over Night a Bag


So I back from my exams and I'm on a school break. When studying , I decided to go and stay at my Nan's as she has no internet or signal so it would mean that I would have no disattractions. While I was there I packed a small essentials only in my overnight bag. I will be showing the products I took with me. 

Before we start, I didn't need a tooth brush or face wash as I already had these at my Nan's. 

So I managed to fit everything in to this small Ted Baker bag which I got from Boots Sale last month. I don't know if they still do this print but I know they still do the same sized bag in a floral print.

Firstly, I took my cleansing lotion by Nivea. If you have been reading my blog from the start , then you would know that I have been using this product a long time. I love it,  it's so refreshing on my skin and makes my skin feel so clean. 

I had to downsize this product because otherwise it wouldn't have fit in my bag. It's the Body Shop's Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner. I have been testing this range out for a while so I can write a review. But I needed a skin clearing product due to my stressed skin.

Even though the packaging is glass, it's not heavy nor did it break. It's the Benefit Triple Performing Moisturiser. It's a light moisturiser so it's a good day night rather than a night time one.

For the night time, it's the body shop Tea Tree Blemish Face Night Lotion. It's cooling on the skin and helps unders skin spots. I took this with me as it's the perfect size and I needed a night lotion. Also I took a direct spot treatment. It's the Boots witch hazel blemish stick. It's cheaper than the other brands and it works just as well. I would recommend Boots own brand straight away to anyone who is looking to try something new. 

I have been getting sore eyes and lips recently so I have been using Simple eye soothing balm and Superdrug's Lip and Cold Sore Cream. The lip cream is the BEST treatment for lips I have ever come across. 

Sudocrem is my go to product when my skin is sore or in need of a deep treatment. I use it on angry blemishes. 

So that the essential products which I took with me in my over night bag. Hope your exams are going okay if you have or had any.

So I have noticed that my post about 'Revision Tips' has been popular which means , I'm guessing, that a lot of you have or going to have exams. Mine are coming up this week and the next so I'm busing studying which means no blog posts for the next two weeks.

Good Luck with your exams , if you have exams coming up.

See you Soon

Also I did blend my bronzer properly after I took this picture, sorry!
