PAYDAY HAUL

It's official: pay day is now my favourite time of the month. I got my pay last week and let's just say I'm enjoying spending it - and spending it I am! 
As I've been buying quite a few things lately, I thought I'd do a little haul post - these are my favourite to read, so I hope you enjoy!


Cute snuggly jumper alert! I got this from the H&M men's section in a size S, and I love it! It's long enough to cover everything that needs covering in leggings (pet hate when people wear things that don't!), and is so christmassy and cosy!
River Island light grey fluffy cardigan, £30

(sorry, forgot to photograph these haha! - thanks google) I bought these chelsea boots from asos, and i absolutely adore them! They look so cute with leggings and are definitely going to be my staple A/W footwear!

This was an extra sixth form purchase, as it's simple to chuck on with my suit - but it also looks really nice with jeans/leggings for a simple outfit - I love wearing it with the jumper above in a kooky collar/jumper look!

Topshop is literally the only place I can buy my jeans from nowadays - i find they fit me perfectly and stay lovely for ages! I liked the colour of these ones so I bought myself a pair as a little treat - plus they were Leigh style, which are always super stretchy and comfy!

Another comfort item I splashed out for was these legging from Jack Wills - I've spent years buying cheap leggings from Primark, thinking all leggings are the same, but recently I've got irritated at just how thin they are, and how tight around the stomach! A friend suggested Jack Wills ones, and I think I've fallen in love.. they're soft, totally thick and opaque, and the band around the top is so snug! Definitely worth splashing out - I got them for £17.50 when Jack Wills had their freshers week 30% off sale :)

Bit of a boring one, but I bought some new hair mousse, and as it was on offer I forked out for some Toni & Guy - but this is actually so worth it! It makes the curls really pronounced, and is in no way sticky or crispy, which I've sometimes found with mousses before.

AAAAAH MAC. This was so exciting- as I had money for once in my life, I thought I'd finally go and buy myself a lovely MAC present. I've never owned anything from MAC, so I went and got colour matched - I was an NW20. I talked to the assistant about what kind of concealer would suit my skin and we decided on this one. I'll probably end up doing a review on it so I won't say much, but I love it!


Real Techniques stippling brush - been looking for a new foundation brush for a while, but I just can't stand flat ended brushes for foundation! I bought this and I'll never look back - it's gorgeously soft and applies so nicely!

Woo I finally had the money to go and buy this! I've read such good reviews on the Origins Super Spot Remover, and seeing as my skin is awful at the moment, I'll be putting it to the test! I'll pop up a review soon, but it's looking lovely so far :)

So that's about it.. oh and BIG NEWS. After the heartbreaking event that occured last week (the loss of my ombred hair - thank you very much lee stafford shampoo!) I went out and bought some more bleach.. and THE OMBRE IS BACK! It needed redoing anyway, but it's nice to have my blonde ends back - I'd forgotten just how boring my hair looked without it. 

One more thing - hello to my sister, who apparently reads my blog a lot more than she tells me! She's just moved up to Cambridge Uni for the first year of her law degree - hope you're enjoying it Harriet! (she's always wanted a mention, you finally got one!)

Last thing? Well done for making it this far down the post, sorry it was a long one!
