Spring Shopping

All hail the typical 'I went shopping and feel the need to parade my belongings' post. I haven't done a post like this in a while, mainly because I one haven't been shopping much and two, I'm quite lazy and want to shove the make up on my face as soon as I can. But in the run up to Stockholm, something struck me and all I was feeling was #feelingspendy! The feeling carried on throughout the trip and beyond that, so let me show you my purchases.

I, of course, made sure I stopped off at Sephora, even though it was a quick supermarket sweep around the store. I headed for the Formula X nail polishes after being told how good they are and I can confirm that they really are incredible. Sometimes nail polishes don't last that long on my nails but this polish stayed shiny for 5 days and only started to chip on the 6th day. I went for the shade 'Ignite', which is a deep red as there wasn't the largest range in the small store. Next stop was brushes, not that I need a new foundation brush, this one stood out. It was the Sephora Pro Flawless Airbrush #56, which so far has been amazing. I apply a small amount of foundation on the top of the brush before buffing it into my skin, which it leaves it with a flawless look to the skin. It's a small enough brush for the full face but also to use with concealer too, so it skips the step of having to use a second brush for concealer.

Although the Mui Mui Glitter sunglasses are calling my name, I went for the Le Specs Hermosa sunglasses. You can buy them around the world, however I did save a little by paying for them in Krones that weekend due to the exchange rate. They're a larger frame than my typical Ray Ban's which I wear far too often and also with a slight cat-eye which I love. I honestly love them so much and have been wearing them at any opportunity.

As for clothes in Stockholm, I picked up a few pieces from Weekday for the summer such as light flowy tops. Since then, I have also made a huge ASOS order and returned a few bits from the order. But with a coming Christening, I wanted to pick up a new dress which is summery but formal as I don't own many formal style dresses. & Other Stories were offering 20% off their dresses so I picked up this Layered Porcelain Dress. The colour is what swayed me, it's such a beautiful bright royal blue with the contrasting white pattern.

And that's my spending for this month, what has your favourite purchase been recently?
