Fashion, Home & Beauty Haul

Since starting my new job I've been treating myself to some retail therapy : ) I thought i'd share some of my recent purchases with you....

I'm a little on the short side so I find it hard to find a Maxi dress that doesn't swamp me. I spotted this cute dress in Primark and the length was perfect on me! It comes with a thin tan belt which will add a little more shape to the overall look when worn. I really can't wait for the hot weather to arrive so I can finally wear it. I think the dress was around £10.

I also found this bargain of a skirt in New Look. This black skater skirt was £5! I've been looking for something fairly smart to wear to work so this is perfect.

On one of my lunch breaks I popped in to Fat Face to look at what was on sale. I found this cream lacey top for £15...not bad for Fat face prices! It will look great with that black skirt from New Look or dressed down with some jeans and boots.

Moving onto home items now. My parents recently had a mini break in Brugge. All of the chocolate had that 'may contain nuts' warning so they brought me back this cute tea towel instead. It's from the brand Greengate who stock some really pretty homeware items. I love it! The colour is perfect : )

Beauty now. I have heard so many glowing reviews about the Bourjois CC cream so I just had to try it. This was £9.99 in Boots but was part of the 3 for 2 offer. Score! So far it has lived up to its reviews. It's a light formula which has fantastic coverage. I'm going to use it for a few days and post my own review on the blog soon : )

I suffer with some dark circles under my eyes so this was a must! The Garnier BB under eye cream applies really easily and hides any blemishes. It instantly makes me look more awake and bright eyed so I'm very impressed : ) This was also £9.99.

Finally I got Max Factor's Colour Elixir lipstick for free as part of Boots offer. I was looking for a subtle pink so settled for the colour Rosewood (833). Is it just me or do you find buying lipstick really difficult? The colours on the packaging seem completely different to the actual lipstick itself. I spent forever swatching until I found a colour I was happy with. This retails for £7.99.

What do you think of my purchases? What have you been buying recently? Do you enjoy reading haul blog posts?
