COLLECTIVE HAUL

✿ February - March ✿
I've been buying things for spring/summer recently (mostly stuff on sale too), and also makeup and a few things for my room so I thought I would do a haul because I haven't done a all in one kind of blog post.
Things with a * beside it are from sale so I'm sorry if you can't get them anymore ha.

Room DΓ©cor
 
 
Tkmaxx Organizer £12.99
You could even use this as a pen organizer or even for makeup such as eyeliners, lip liners, or mascaras. I use it for makeup brushes, separating them by setting brushes, eye brushes, foundation brushes, lip brushes, tweezers and eyelash curlers, and misc./multipurpose. Makes searching for the right brush so much easier.
 
 Tkmaxx, again White 'leather' Notebook £4.99
I've been using the bigger notebook mostly. I write down blog post ideas. The paper quality in this is really good and I use it almost everyday!


Tkmaxx small, pink 'leather' notebook £3.99
Similar to the white one, but smaller which makes it perfect for travel to note down on the go.



Tkmaxx - Jar mug £2.99
Obviously like everyone has, the jar 'mug' craze which is supposed to look Tumblr when taking photos. Well this is a good way to make you drink more smoothies!


Tkmaxx - Fox reversible throw £19.99
This throw is reversible which means that there's a lighter side and a darker side. It's just really good how you can make your room look cosier by just reversing the throw. It also has a leaf pattern on a blue background which gives a little colour to your bed if its like mine, plain white (both sheets and pillows etc.)

Fashion
 

 
New Look - Black Frilly Socks £2.99
I love frilly socks, especially for spring/summer paired with white converse and a skater dress.
Black frilly socks are fashionably versatile too, you can wear them to school - they are black socks after all.
 

 
Miss Selfridge Skort* SALE £35 to £10
This design is really nice and perfectly pairs up with a simple outfit in summer.
 
 
New Look - Black Floral Print Skater Skirt £12.99
I think this is perfect for spring or summer paired with a basic top or crop top. This is from the new collection so there's no problem finding it if you want it.


 
Miss Selfridge Floral Romper* SALE £39 to £5
This romper is so soft but the material is fragile so I would be careful whilst wearing jewellery (there's a note attached saying this).
It has a really nice flowy bit on the top and the design is repeated on the end too. It generally looks like a dress because of the frill but they are shorts which make it better.


New Look Burgundy Shirt* SALE £19.99 to £10
These are super soft and I love these kind of shirts.

 
 
New Look Black Grid Pattern Top SALE* £12.99 to £6
This is 3/4 length and its quite a tight fit. You could pair this with jeans or even neatly tucked into a basic skater skirt.

New Look burgundy zip vest SALE* £7.99 to £6
Similarly to the previous one, its perfect with anything.
 

H&M black and white basic stripy shirt - £14.99
I really like shirts, they can be worn in winter, autumn or spring. This one is just plain white with black vertical stripes. It has a kind of basic look to it but the end of it is cut kind of so you can see some your jeans or whatever on the side.
 
 Beauty 

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Retouch Powder £12
This powder came in a sample size with the S&G Kick Ass Concealer however it was more white than this one so I'm hoping its the same? None the less I always used this as a under eye concealer setting powder because it looks so natural compared to if you put the Stay Matte Powder under your eyes which looks horrible.


Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner £3.99 in 018 Addiction
I generally love this lip liner and I just use it alone without a lipstick and it stays on for ages. The colour is nude but darker and slightly plumy.


Sally Hansen nail polish £6.99 in '160 Shell We Dance'
I really  like this colour, Its kind of like a shell baby pink and its buildable, one layer is transparent with a hint of pink, two coats is perfect pink but you can still see your nail and obviously three is full colour.
 

Thanks for reading & tell me what's the most recent thing you bought?

INSTAGRAM Q&A

 
 
 
I went on Instagram a while ago asking you guys what you'd like to know.
I got loads of questions so I'm going to answer most of them now.
(I copied the comments exactly with the emojis etc)
 
@floral.kat What are your favourite palettes? ♥
Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics & Sleek Au Naturel x

@lozstewartt What inspires you??
I think when I go to London or other places and I just get ideas for anything from a photo or a blog post if that's what you're asking x
 
@ellas.world Favourite high street stores? 😘 πŸ’˜✨
Top Shop, Zara, H&M, New look I guess.
 
@eilidhtaggxx What is your fave beauty drugstore product? Ly πŸ’•πŸŽ€✨
Definitely the Rimmel exaggerate lip liner in 018, It stays on for long and it's a really nice kind of dark plumy toned but still on the nude side.
 
@katy_kanex If you could live with one skincare product and one makeup product what would they be and why? πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ’˜ love your videos!!!xx
Skincare - Clinique moisturizer because it leaves your skin feeling really soft straight away.
Makeup - Collection concealer because it's really good coverage and can also be used under eyes.
 
@hollynapier_ What is your must have makeup products?
Naked 2 Basics palette because its so versatile for many looks, (matte)
Benefit They're Real mascara, just perfect for a starter in high end makeup.
 
@_annie_1999 Favourite Starbucks?
It's getting warmer now so definitely Mango Passion Fruit Blended Juice.
 
@moriarteaa_ Whats the last thing you bought?
- Soap and Glory Brow Archery
- Sleek Clear Brow Gel
- Kate Moss Lipstick 08
 
@floralblogger Favourite mascara?πŸ‘€
Maybelline Colossal Volum' express for sure.
 
@emss.rose What's your favourite colour?πŸ’–
Either mint green when its spring/summer or Beigey Grey in autumn/winter because it feels more cosier to be honest!
 
@ellas.world Favourite film and why? πŸ˜˜πŸ’–
Mean girls, I keep rewatching it - it's just amazing haha. (and also I cant think of any other film)
 
@ansleyorth who inspires you?
similar like the other question, a few people inspire me like WonderLOST youtube channel about travel etc., @rmkhnert_ on Instagram because of his amazing photography also Troye with his videos like this one. Click here.
 
@c.o.u.r.t.ney Why did you create a blog?
1. I felt like I can't just post photography on Instagram so I thought why not on a blog as the majority of a blog is photos.
2. I like makeup and I also thought I could explain further with reviews etc. as you cant do much on Instagram.
3. Wanted to do something that my friends don't do and be different & stand out of the mainstream crowd at my school to be honest!
 
@hayleyyjaydee do you have a blog or YouTube?
Both, link are somewhere at top.
 
@_lottiemorgan_ Zalfie or Narcus
Zalfie! I just love Zoe and Alfie separately and even more together. I don't really watch much of Niomi or Marcus, unless its a main channel vid.
