Haul: My Recent Picks

Hello lovelies, hope you're all having a good week. Today i wanted to share my recent buys over the past two weeks, and wanted to get it up quick so that the clothes items that are included are still around just in case you want them too. 
Ok so I'm going to do this in shop order instead of photo order so I'm not hoping from one place to another, hopefully this will make a lot more sense haha. 

House of Fraser
Urban decay naked basics palette £20 - Urggggh i am in love with this palette! I don't own any naked palette's (as i have never been able to afford them) but i have always wanted them as I'm a neutral matte kinda gal. This palette has a wonderful colour choice and i believe is muti functioning too, however I'll explain all this in a review soon.
Benefit the pore fessional £24.50 - I've heard so much good stuff about this primer i finally caved in and bought it. I'm not gonna lie it was an impulse buy and when i walked out the shop i was a bit like I've just spent how much on a primer! But it is amazing and i do not regret it now that I've tried it. 

Miss Selfridge
Eylure double lashes 202 £1.60 (sale) - For a reason unknown to me i love lashes and want a massive stash of them so when i saw these in the sale for that price i had to snap them up. Sadly they have sold out but they're normal price is around £7 and here's the to them on the eylure website.

Boots
Montagne Jeunesse glacial clay spa mask £1.49 - I love these masks and they're now the only ones from this brand that i use, they leave my skin amazingly soft and smooth. I normally pick these up when food shopping when my skin needs a little pick me up but in Boots they currently have them on offer for 4 for £3 so naturally i stocked up.
Barry M high shine gelly nail paint key lime £3.99 - I'm not really one for green polishes (unless it's a jade green) but i fell in love with this shade. It's a stunning colour and i shall have swatches up soon.
Barry M confetti nail effects sour apple £3.99 - I'm not really one for glitter but wow i fell in love with this confetti! They have a few other colours that look amazing too.
Sinfulcolors easy going £1.99 - I know i know i own A LOT of pink polishes but i really like how this one is so pale, i just think it's a perfect shade for a nice feminine look.
Bourjois healthy mix serum 52 Vanille £10.99 - Whilst buying the naked basic palette the lovely girl that served me said that i should try this and seem as i was looking for a new foundation to try i thought i would take her advice. And i must admit so far I'm loving it so keep your eye's peeled for a review soon.

Primark
Sunglasses £2 -  I never seem to suite any kind of sunglasses but i insist on wearing aviators anyway haha. I don't like to spend a lot of money on them as they always just get chucked in my handbag or my little boy gets his hands on them, so i always get the Primark ones.
Cross studs £1.50- Ok so i did already have these but my cheeky little son got his hands on them and now i only have one gold cross left haha. So when i saw that they still had these in i picked up another set as they do look really nice on. 
Black maxi skirt £8- The other month i tried on a skirt very similar to this in Topshop but couldn't face handing over that much money for it and when i thought no actually i want it it was gone, so as soon as i saw this one i snapped it up as it is all but the same. I picked it up in size 10 although if they had an 8 i think that would of fitted better but hey ho you know what Primark's like for really nice items. It has a massive slit up the side and i can't wait to style it up, if you follow me on Instagram you would of seen the pic i put up of what it looks like on.

River Island
Purple skull bikini top £10 bottoms £8 (sale) - How amazing is this bikini! Ok so on the website it says that it's red...i have no idea why as it couldn't be more purple if it tried, it does also come in a few other colours. I was in need of a new bikini (as me & the Mr are having a spa day on Sunday woop woop hehe) but as i hardly ever wear one was hunting through the sales and to be fair i didn't really find much out there until i come across this bad boy. I am in love with the big metal diamante skull, i think it is very me haha.

Topshop
Glow polished £10 - My god i am in love with this, so yet another thing to keep your eyes peeled for haha. It's a wonderful cream highlight that gives such a lovely subtle glow and you can use it wherever you like. Annoyingly i can't find a link for this on Topshops website but i would imagine it's still in stores.
TFNC soledo maxi lace black dress £65 - I know I've said i am in love a lot in this post but this is LOVE! I tried this on the other month and i was besotted but didn't really have a reason to wear it, well a few weeks ago we was invited to a wedding so naturally the first thought that came to mind was thank god i can now get that dress...yes that's right I'm wearing it to a wedding haha. I didn't take a full length picture as i couldn't get a decent one and i thought you'd see it better on their site but i did want to show how beautiful the lace detailing is. It's a full length dress with capped sleves, a big slit up the front with a lace back which goes round the sides and front, and it's a very snug fit. Although i bought this in Topshop for £65 i can't find it on their website so the link is to TFNC's own site which is a bonus as if you buy it from their it's £58, it also comes in white and red.

Have you got any of these items, if so what are your thoughts? X
