Cherry Diva Jewellery Haul

Over the Easter weekend, I discovered a new online shop, Cherry Diva Jewellery. They do a great range of statement necklaces and cute, dainty little pieces, and I just had to grab a few bits for myself! The prices are ridiculously cheap – these three pieces were £8.50 all together, but they’re surprisingly high quality pieces, so I would definitely recommend checking them out!

Lush Valentine’s Day Haul Part Two <3

Did you see Part One, where I reviewed the Neon Love soap and Prince Charming shower gel? Well, I couldn’t help going back to Lush to pick up a couple more items from the Valentine’s Day Lush products…

So I came home with the Love Locket bath bomb and the Tender is the Night massage bar. As I mentioned in my last post, I think these are both pretty pricey (£6.95 and £6.50 respectively), but if that doesn’t put you off, then you should really enjoy these two sweet, girly products.

End of Term Hauling, Part Three: The Body Shop

Have you seen Part One of this haul? If not, start there!

Today I’m showing you what I came home to; a haul achieved in my absence, thanks to some belated birthday presents and my mum’s trip to the Body Shop Outlet at Swindon. So, thanks Mum!

Yes, that’s quite a lot of lip balm… With the things I picked up from the Body Shop last week, I’m pretty much sorted for body butter and lip balm for a while now! Continue reading

End of Term Hauling, Part One: Superdrug

I’m at home! I’ve left the dreaming spires behind for some real dreaming (ie, sleeping like the dead for a week to make up for term time). And of course, since leaving Oxford feels like leaving civilisation, I did some shopping before I came down. And then found some more beauty bits waiting for me. And then did a little bit of book shopping once I got home.

I’m going to be putting myself on an unnecessary beauty spending ban for July, while I save up for a ticket to Green Man festival in August, so these are the last few bits and bobs I’ll be getting for a little while.

Today, then, I’ll show you my haul from Superdrug. Tomorrow, it’ll be what I stocked up on from Lush. Saturday, you can see what was waiting for me when I got home, and then on Sunday, for the Book Nook, my book buys.

P1010053This is thanks to running out of powder, looking for an alternative to Lush’s Aqua Marina, and a tempting Bourjois offer…

Brilliant Body Shop Deals (with Tiny Haul)

I had a very tempting email this morning from Voucher Codes, offering me a completely FREE Born Lippy lip balm from the Body Shop, so I popped down after lunch to grab one and check out the sale at the same time.

P1000986

The sale seemed to be largely shower gels (which I find overpriced even in the sale) and body butters, mostly reduced to £5 – I love these body butters the most of any moisturisers. I know I have two fruity body butters waiting for me at home from my mother’s recent trip to a Body Shop outlet, so I was fairly restrained, and only picked up one in Moroccan Rose. I’ve been looking for something to top up moisture after my Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, and this seems like it will match really well.  Continue reading

Procrasti-shopping!

I’ve had a few occasions this week to pop into the shops with some of my birthday money, and I’ve found some gorgeous little bargains in Primark. I also treated myself to something from my wishlist as a bit of a present for getting through a horrible week at uni last week.

Firstly, I found these two little dresses, for £13 each… A white lace pinafore dress (size 12), and a watercolour floral dress with an entirely cut-out back (size 10).

P1000807 P1000808

I actually bought the size 12 of the watercolour dress first of all, but when I got it home it looked terrible! Because it was a bit too big, the edges of the cut-out back gapped away from my skin, and there was too much room in the bust (yes, too much!), so it wasn’t very flattering. I swapped it the next day for the size 10, which fit much better, and it looks really cute!

P1000809

You know how sometimes in Primark you just find one mysterious item of clothing on its own, on a different rack, and you can never find any others? This skirt caught my eye for exactly that reason, and luckily the billy-no-mates was a size 10! For £8, I think this was a good find – it’s high-waisted, and comes to about mid-thigh on me. It was really hard to get a nice photo of, but it’s very pretty, and will hopefully feature in an outfit post soon.

P1000778Last but not least, I finally got my hands on this lovely bee necklace from my spending ban wishlist! For £6, this would make a really sweet gift. It’s a short necklace – the bee sits in the hollow of my neck, if I do it up on the shortest link – but that’s my favourite length for necklaces, so I adore it!

Have you found any gems in Primark lately? There’s so much of their spring fashion I really like – what do you think of my finds?
