Haul Time

I was actually having a little spur of online shopping, and decided with the help of Ems that I really needed to grab this mineralize skin finish. During July/August Mac brought out their Tropical Taboo collection and when seen the collection in August after leaving the store and not buying anything from it, I regretted not buying 'Adored' straight away. As Mac tend to switch collections quite frequently, I thought I would never really get my hands on this however after still seeing this on the website I decided to grab it before it well and truly went out of stock. It is such a beautiful blush colour matched with soft and gentle as a highlight, this definitely being my favourite combo at the moment. 

You can buy this here

I can't really remember where I heard this from however I read from another blog post how Fragrance Direct had restocked their Essie nail polishes. Although Fragrance Direct do charge postage and packaging, the Essie nail polishes are still ridiculously cheap compared to their usually £8 price tag. Fragrance Direct sell old collections of Essie polishes for £1.99, so I had to grab some before they went again. I picked up the shades 'Bikini so Teeny' which is actually a repurchase and 'Tour de Finance' which is a metallic hot pink shade. You can actually see the glitter in Bikini so Teeny however it is a far more subtle blue on the nails.

After watching countless American Beauty Vloggers and seeing the vast amount of hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works, I really wanted most of the scents from the collection. However one thing that stops us, we don't have Bath and Body Works in the UK so the only way to grab them is through either Ebay or Amazon. After deciphering for a while I choose 'Vanilla Cupcake' as I love love love sweet scents. I only really buy them when they are £1.99, however they can range in price depending on where you buy them from. I have actually ordered two more scents as I really was impressed the only really scented hand gels you can buy is the Soap and Glory version and then cucumber and strawberry scented smells. 
So as many of you know Lush has brought in their Christmas stock. Which is by far their best stock, I only really venture into Lush this time of year to grab some bits and bobs which are new and old favourites. After deciding not to pick up Snow Fairy last year, I really wanted to get my hands on it this year. I'm a massive fan of sweet scents so this is so perfect for my liking. The only thing I would say is that they are overpriced however they are a nice little treat once in a while. Look at this little pumpkin. This is actually a bubble bar, so you can crumble this under running hot water and I'm sure it will leave your bath, amazing shades of orange and yellow. I couldn't leave him there, he is so cute and wasn't really too bad in price for £2.75 as you could probably have more than one bath from this lickle bubble bar. Have you had a chance to look at the Christmas selection recently? 

Thank you for reading,
