London Haul

As promised, here's my London Haul post! I didn't actually manage to shop anywhere unique to London (sobsob), my friend and I got far too distracted looking at the cute puppies in Harrods and maxing out her bank card in Oxford Street Primark. I'm definitely going to have to go back to London before the summer is over, there's so much more shopping to be done! But for now here's my recent haul.

I found this in the sale racks of Topshop, as soon as I saw the lace detail and the colour I fell in love. It's great to wear with sandles in the summer and I'm hoping to style it with black opaque tights, black heels and a blazer so I can wear it in the winter too.

I was looking for the leggings I posted in my London Wishlist post, unfortunately it turns out they have been discontinued, determined to get my hands on a pair of black Topshop leggings, (they seem to be the only brand of leggings that haven't got so thin that my underwear can be seen through them!) I tried these on. The leggings are great, I was initially put off by the high waist but it's really not a problem, if anything it feels like it acts as a tummy tucking feature!

After my first experience with Barry M Nail Paints a couple of weeks ago I was excited to pick up some summery pastel colours. 

I'm excited to try the Gelly range and see how 'hi-shine' it really is.

I visited the Benefit counter to repurchase Erase Paste to cover the circles under my eyes, my last pot had finally almost run out and I'd had it almost two years (yucky yuck!). The first assistant showed me the Erase Paste and Fakeup and the assistant who helped me with Brow Zings introduced me to Boi-ing - dilemma! I chose boi-ing as I felt that it had better coverage than Fakeup and was told that it is less likely to crease than Erase Paste.

I noticed this on the Benefit counter in my local boots the other day so I asked the Benefit assistant if I could try it, she did an amazing job and my brows looked great after. Hopefully I can do a job as good as the Benefit assistant!

Boots Metal Free Hair Bands
Probably my least exciting purchase!

Primark Anti-Bacterial Hand Wipes - £1
I love having these in my hand bag and the car.

I hope you enjoyed the haul post - have you tried any of these products?
Reviews will come soon!



  1. You'll love Prickly Pear, I have three of the Barry M Gellys and they're my favourite nail varnishes by far at the minute

    1. I'm wearing Prickly Pear now, I tried it first after your recommendation! So many people at work asked what polish it was. I can't wait to try some others :)
