Collective Haul

I thought I would show you a few things I've bought lately as I rarely do hauls, they are so difficult to photograph, especially the clothes! After breaking out from using Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish, I decided not to try any more cleansers and go back to one I knew worked for me. My favourite cleanser ever is the Origins Mega Mushroom cleanser, it makes my skin feel amazing and I didn't have any bad reactions to it which is rare! I repurchased Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation after asking Lily (http://iamlilybee.blogspot.co.uk) what foundation she wears as her skin in her blog posts always looks amazing! I've used this before, about two years ago so I am excited to try it out again. I have seen a few other bloggers mention the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Shadow Paints, I swatched a few and decided on the shade "Rich Russet" which is a lovely dark brown shade, the other shades did not appeal to me as much but I think I will get a lot of use out of this one! A while ago I had read about some of the YSL lipsticks, I was between two shades and ended up getting Fuchsia in Rage. I haven't tried it out yet but it is a beautiful shade! I start University in about a month and really need some practical shoes rather than pretty little ballet pumps! I really hate shoe shopping but had decided to buy some white converse as they would go with lots of different outfits. 

On Monday it was a bank holiday so I joined my cousins and aunt and headed into Central London for a little spot of shopping! First we went into Forever 21, I first shopped in Forever 21 when I was in California and I am so glad that we now have it in the uk! I bought two stripy tops, one in pink and one in navy. These are really slouchy, casual tops that would be perfect for university! I also bought a simple white/cream top, I have one very similar to this which I've had for years, I wear it with leggings, with jeans, tucked into skirts, it's so versatile. However my old one was starting to look old and had a few tiny holes, my mum kept telling me to throw it out, I couldn't find a replacement anywhere but this one is perfect! Next we went to Victoria's Secret, I've been to the store in Santa Barbara which is nice but oh my gosh if you haven't been to the London store you are missing out. I've never been so overwhelmed by a store, it was so breathtakingly beautiful! I just bought a body mist, I love coconut and vanilla scents so this one is perfect, I love it! We then went to Gilly Hicks which is similar to Abercrombie and Hollister. I don't usually shop in those kinds of stores but I found this beautiful bra which was £34 however when I got to the till it was £19, they had so many lovely bra's, I could have bought them all! I also bought this cute hoodie, I never wear hoodies as I feel underdressed and scruffy in them however this one is quite thin and is slouchy without being baggy and unflattering!

  12. I have the Estee Lauder Double wear foundation, i've had it for maybe 8 months and it's INCREDIBLE.
    It does give a lot of coverage though so I tend to only use it when i'm going on a night out or for dinner, but it's definitely too much for summer or just really casual stuff.

  16. Gilly Hicks has become one of my fave stores recently, have you tried their body collection? Everything smells amazing. The bra is super cute by the way! I love the YSL lipsticks, they're super creamy and the shade range is humongous x
