Primark Haul!

Hey girls! So recently I have been doing quite a bit of shopping in Primark and decided that it was time for a haul. As you will see from the things that I have picked up I have been really enjoying Primark's dupes of various expensive brands.
First of all I picked a few things from the jewelery section. I got two pairs of large cross stud earrings in silver and gold for only £1.50 and a four pack of boho style bracelets for only £2!

Next up I got this brown leather 'Cambridge Satchel Company' style knock off that I picked up for only £9. It was such a bargain compared to the price of real ones. It feels like really nice quality and I think it will be the perfect size for traveling.

I saw this nude coloured bag for only £4 so I decided to get it as well because it seemed like a better size for everyday.

After that I saw this navy blue "DORK" tank top similar to the Topshop ones. It was only £4 which I thought was a total bargain considering what you would have to pay in other shops.

I also picked up this adorable oatmeal coloured moustache top. It was only £4 too and I thought the "SORRY MUST DASH!" message was very cute.
Then I picked up one of their American Apparel-esque hoodies for only £8. They have them in loads of colours but I decided on the black just because it seemed the most versatile.

I have been wanting a pair of brogues for ages but I finally just got round to getting them. These were £10 which isn't bad but for Primark I expected them to be a bit cheaper.

I also purchased a pair of their navy blue vans lookalike trainers for only £6. Minus the Vans logo they look virtually identical to a pair of £40 Vans and a few people have actually complimented me on them thinking they were real Vans.

I hadn't bought a Primark nail polish in a long while until I saw this gorgeous colour. It's a unique shimmery sky blue with a pretty pinky purple sheen to it. I'm not sure how opaque it is going to be but I think it would look lovely as a top coat too. This was only £2.50 and it is in the shade '93 Angel'.

At the checkout I saw these plastic coffee mugs that reminded me of the paper to-go cups you get in Starbucks and whatnot. There was a few different designs but I ended up going for the moustache one. It was only £2.50, it's a nice size and I think it will do a better job keeping your drink warm than an ordinary mug would.

That's all for today, let me know if any of you have posted a Primark haul recently because they are my favourite♥ I hope you all have a lovely Easter!
Lots of love,

Another Day, Another Boots Haul!

Hello ladies! Today I have another Boots haul for you all..

Firstly I picked up a few goodies from Rimmel when the 3 for 2 offer was on. After having such a great experience with the Wake Me Up concealer I decided to give the foundation a shot too. I also repurchased one of their wonderful Stay Matte Pressed Powders and ended up getting a bottle of Nail Tip Whitener for free!

I had been meaning to try out a new facial scrub for quite a while when I heard about the Simple Smoothing Scrub. It contains rice granules which 'gently exfoliate and improve skin condition'. I have always liked Simple skincare products so I have high hopes for this scrub.

The new Maybelline Rocket Mascara was on offer for £5.99 instead of £7.99 so I decided to buy it just now when it is on offer because I would probably end up buying at some point anyway. Since I just recently opened a new mascara, I will be keeping this for the summer time so I opted for the waterproof version.

I am a huge fan of the Models Own Hedkandi range so I picked up the shades Balearic Cool and Hedonist to add to my collection. They are both very bright, pretty and perfect for summer so I am sure I will get a lot of use out of them.

Next I picked up the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. When I first heard about this mascara I thought it was a genius idea! Although considering it is high end and basically the only one on the market, I expected it to be ridiculously overpriced but at £11 it actually wasn't too pricey. It is so easy to use and I highly recommend giving it a go if, like me, you have trouble trying to applying mascara to your bottom lashes.

I was looking for a new nail buffer when I came across the Stylfile S-buffer. I am used to the block shaped buffers and I have never seen one like this before. The S-shape is supposed to follow the natural curve of your nail which will hopefully make buffing much faster and easier.

Then I picked up a couple of things from the Loreal No Sulphates hair product range. I repurchased a tube of the EverSleek Shampoo which has been my favourite shampoo at the moment. They were sold out of the conditioner so I decided to try out the hair mask instead. I have never actually tried a hair mask before so I am very interested to see how it performs.

Lastly I picked up two of the new Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers in the shades Nude Eclipse and Celestial. I wish I had purchased these when the 3 for 2 offer was on because I could have gotten another one for free. Anyway I don't want to talk about these too much as I plan to do a full review on them in the near future.

I hope you liked this late night haul! Tell me your thoughts on these products and let me know if you have posted a beauty haul recently!
Enjoy the rest of your night♥ 
Lots of love,
