January Beauty And Fashion HaulSaturday, January 30, 2016
I'm sure you know by now that I love a bit of on line shopping, I do all my shopping on line because I am housebound due to illness so on line shopping is a God send to me, I recently did some shopping and thought I would share with you what I bought.
The first place I did some shopping was Next, I like Next they have some great things and I usually buy a few things from there throughout the year and if you saw my fashion wish list post a couple of weeks ago (you can read it here if you haven't done so and would like to) you would have seen me mention a skirt I liked, that is what I picked up from Next.
The skirt is khaki and is also available in black but since I have a lot of black I decided to go with the khaki, (please excuse the pink cast on the photograph, it was taken in my daughters very pink bedroom) it is made from a jersey material and is a pull on style, the buttons down the centre of the skirt are for decoration purposes and do not unfasten. The skirt comes to just above my knee and I am 5ft 5" tall, it looks nice and I thought would be nice to wear all year round, it is worth mentioning that the black one is a faded black shade and not solid black, the khaki is the same but it is less obvious. The skirt was £22.00 and is available from the Next website.
I love River Island and always buy my leggings from there, but I do find things throughout the year I like too, I have seen a couple of clothing items I really like but my size was unavailable, don't you hate it when that happens? So I just picked up some earrings I really liked this time.
I really love the front and back style earrings but hadn't tried any and when I saw these on the River Island website I fell in love, they are so pretty, I love the little diamante in the centre of the daisy and on the stud part too, they are really lovely earrings and ones I will get lots of wear out of all year round. The earrings were £6.99 and are available on the River Island website.
Boots is one of my go to websites for beauty products, I like to browse different sections of the site and pop items in my basket, we have a Boots store within walking distance so if my order is under the free delivery bracket I have my order delivered to that store and then Simon or one of the girls pick it up for me, you don't have to pick it up yourself, as long as the person collecting the parcel has your order number it's fine, it's really handy and if you order before 8pm your order is in store after 12pm the next day which is brilliant, and free.
The first thing I picked up from Boots is the Wet Brush and naturally I got it in bright pink, how could I not? I have a real problem with my hair falling out and when my hair is brushed especially when it's wet, I lose a lot of hair and by a lot I mean a handful and this is every time my wet hair is brushed through, I lost about half as much every morning when my hair is brushed and usually put into a pony tail, my hair is very thin and I had read reviews from people saying the Wet Brush doesn't pull at the hair and as a result you don't lose as much hair so I bought the brush in the hope it helps the amount of hair I am losing. The Wet Brush was £11.99 and is available on the Boots website.
The next item I purchased is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Antwerp, I have wanted to try out one of the soft matte lip cream for a long time but haven't ever picked one up, since NYX launched in Boots stores there have been a lot of blog posts on their products and I have seen a lot of good reviews on the soft matte lip creams, amongst other products so I thought I would pick one up, I searched out swatches on line and Antwerp looked like a nice coral shade which as you probably know is one of my most worn summer shades and favourites so I picked it up. The NYX soft matte lip cream was £5.50 and is available on the Boots website.
The last thing I picked up from Boots is the Maybelline Super Stay 3D Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat, I wouldn't be me if I didn't pick up a nail product would I? I have used the Orly Glosser top coat for years and years and adore it but I do like to try out other brands too and the gel like polishes and top coats always seem to take my eye, I used to have regular salon gel manicures and loved the results I got and would love to get the same results at home so love to try high street polishes and top coats to see if I can find the perfect one to give me that result. The top coat is a new product and I could only find a couple of reviews on it but both were good so fingers crossed I like it too. The top coat was £4.99 and is available on the Boots website.
Those are all the things I picked up on my recent on line shopping spree, I will of course be reviewing both the lip creme and top coat as well as the wet brush and will feature the skirt and earrings in a fashion post.
Have you tried any of the beauty products I picked up? Or do you have the skirt or earrings? Let me know if you do and what you think by chatting to me in the comments, also let me know which item or items you liked best.
Thank you for reading, much love as always
