Haul - Spring Summer 15

So I’m going on holiday soon and so over the last few weeks, and months, I’ve been buying lots of new bits and bobs. I know it’s oh but only march but a lot of these items are summery as I’m going off to the Caribbean! All this stuff, apart from the odd thing, should still be in the shops, so I hope you enjoy seeing my recent buys.

A few weeks ago, I was shopping and I splurged a bit on a new makeup brush. I love Real Techniques as a brand and when I finally got round to buying this, it was a complete treat. This powder brush is so soft and it is the perfect size for the product that’s being applied. Makeup brushes are often a little pricey, this one was £12.99, but I think over time they become worth it.

Staying on the theme of makeup, I had to stock up on one of my favourite makeup essentials- my Supercat Soap&Glory eyeliner. I love this pen liner as I can be accurate with it and it is so easy to apply. I always go for the shade ‘carbon black’ and at £6- I can’t stop loving this. 

As seen in my wish list earlier this month (there are quite a few of those items popping up in this haul), I have been on the lookout for Fleur De Force’s new book: The Glam Guide. This book is all about beauty and fashion and I can’t wait to start reading this- I think I’ll be cracking it out on the plane.

Then another item I picked up was this simple blackscrunchie from New Look. I’ve worn it a few times already and I’m not 100%, but I think this will come in handy when I’m wearing my hair in a ponytail or bun.

Now or clothes. I picked up this first top a while ago and I can’t wait to wear it. This H&M crop top has washed out stripes and I think it will look so effective with a black skirt and a bright lipstick.

The next top I got is from New Look and is a rosy pink ribbed top. This top isn’t cropped buy it’s not quite full length, and I plan to wear it with some denim shorts or a skirt. It’s a great value top at £7.99 so if you’re tempted- I say go for it!

I think a theme of grey and stripes is beginning to show, clearly established in this grey striped vest top from Primark. This top was only about £1.50 and I think will be a great simple piece to wear in the summer months.

Next is a cami top that I am loving so much. This lovely lace New Look cami is so summery and I just think it looks so nice with jeans. The top is covered in the front and the back is transparent and lace. There are also a few colours in the range including a peach shade and black.

Following the tops are a pair of denim jeans. I’ve had jeggings before but I’ve never really owned my own jeans. In the past, I’ve felt really uncomfortable with how I look in jeans and trousers so I’ve been put off buying any. However these I love. This pair of denim skinny jeans are basic darkwash ones but they fit so well. They are the perfect length and shape for me and when I bought them on sale for 50% off- well it was a total steal. These jeans are comfy and make me feel good, what more could I want. I expect these jeans will become a basic in my wardrobe and I’m sure will be one of the best £11 I’ve ever spent.

My penultimate item is a hair accessory from Primark. I’m a HUGE lover of flowers and floral crowns and when I saw this headband in Primark, I knew it was coming home with me. This gold and pink metal crown was £4, so not the greatest bargain of all time, but I think it will look so pretty this summer.

The last item is one of my most exciting purchases. Thesegorgeous light wash shorts are my new obsession. They’re a pair of acid wash hot-pant New Look shorts with cut out detailing on the trim. The scallop hem just adds to the absolute amazing-ness of these shorts and my enthusiasm to wear them is overflowing. They were not the cheapest buy at £22.99 but I simply couldn’t resist!

So that is my haul. As you can see I’ve been shopping around at a lot of different shops over the space of a few months but I’m loving every item in my new collection. What have you been buying lately? Are you excited for the spring/ summer season? I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and have an amazing day,
