I got these ankle boots from Pull&Bear the other day, and I’m kind of in love. They’re a neutral suede with a little wooden heel, that makes them super comfy rather than being dead flat, and a gold strip at the back, which I love. They’re feel so sturdy are so versatile! Definitely my footwear of choice for Autumn !
Last week I put up a Homewear and Beauty haul video and this week is part 2 of my May haul, whoops. I hope you enjoy this collective H&M, Pull and Bear and Urban Outfitters fashion haul and if you haven’t seen the Part 1 you should ’cause it was a big-gun.
May was a bad month to be my bank balance, so bad that the evidence had to be divided between 2 videos, yepp. So the first is what I got in the world of beauty and homewear and the second is all the fashion bits I got in preparation for my holiday !
Check back for part 2 – the clothes haul – next week !
I’ve been asked a lot to recommend good make up brushes on a budget, as with anything I believe you have to pay for quality so give me the likes of a MAC or Sigma brush any day. However, after being eased in by the truly wonderful Real Techniques brushes I was feeling a little more adventurous. So during my perusing in boots I came across these. The Eco Tools brushes are made from sustainable Bamboo and all recycled, ‘cruelty-free’ materials. Honest to god, they’re the softest darn things and feel truly high end. I got a pack of 6 and bought an additional flat eyeshadow brush because they were buy one get one half price.

If you’re anywhere near as make up-obsessed as me you’ll have experienced an overwhelming urge to run out and buy the YSL Touche Éclat foundation so, just before my holiday to Skiathos (and you can read all about that here and see some holiday snaps!), I went out and did just that. Yes, I got over excited on a John Lewis trip a week before I went to get a tan and got a foundation colour matched to my pasty, british skin.. I know. So half way through my holiday getting ready for dinner out I realised my catastrophic mistake as I ghosted (ghosted?) up my face. My make do resolution was to mix it with my slightly darker Estée Lauder Double Wear with the Touche Éclat and whoa what a resolution it was. Since trying this the first time I think I’ve worn this, with my Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit, everyday since ! Continue reading →
After being on the losing side of a quarrel with Rimmel’s ‘wake me up’ for a month or so I felt like my faith in Rimmel foundations had been knocked a bit. So when it came to doing a bit of a drugstore haul I expected to gravitate to something a tad different… well, I was clearly mistaken.
