The Haul: Treating Myself


You know when you go shopping and when you buy things, it just makes you happy? That happened to me yesterday. I had some birthday money so I went to Newcastle to spend it all. I initially set out to buy Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight but it wasn't in stock, so I took it as a sign to buy multiple items from Boots.

I've been loving the 'barely there' mani so I picked up Mademoiselle by Essie. It was either between that or Ballet Slippers but I wanted something very sheer. I think it's a perfect colour for job interviews! I had ran out of Bioderma (sop) so I picked up this L'Oreal Eye Make-up Remover as there wasn't any micellar water in stock. I used it for the first time last night and the first impressions aren't good. After finding out that the Bourjois Universal Illuminating Powder wasn't limited edition, I decided I needed to pick it up. After swatching it, I love it, except I don't actually own a powder brush. Since I missed out on the Kevyn Aucoin highlighter, Soap & Glory Glow All Out was popped into my basket. A bit too pink toned for my liking and I'm not too keen on the cardboard packaging, but I will report back later.

My favourite thing to buy after beauty are shoes. I can never have enough shoes, whether it's trainers or boots. My beloved Zara loafers broke in the summer so I went for a 'practical' loafer as they've got a thick sole which would be good for winter. I was thinking practical, you see. I'm going to wear them to my job interview at Hugo Boss tomorrow (eek) while they're clean and brand new. They were from Office, which is where I buy most of my shoes from so I managed to use my old student card there.

I have an American Apparel jumper coming to me in the post, which I am so excited about. Thanks AA for the 30% birthday code!
