September/October Shopping Haul

 Hi everyone, I've been saving up some pennies lately and then ended up have bit of a spend over the last month and I thought you might like to see what I bought :-)

The first thing I was longing to get my hands on was of course this little makeup bag from the Zoella Beauty range.  As soon as I saw it I thought I must have that and straight away ordered it from Feel Unique, it arrived a couple of days later and I love it :-)  It's a really pretty blossom pink and I love the gold zip, it's made of good thick wipe-clean material too and I think the little label is a really nice added touch.  I've already got it in use holding all my makeup brushes :-)

When I was in my local town a couple of weeks ago, I was amazed to find that Poundland had started selling a really good range of jewellery, equal to the quality of Primark or Peacocks.  So I picked up these two really cute necklaces and pair of crystal hairgrips and I shall definitely have another look in there again soon.

I also wandered in to Wilkinsons and had a look around their makeup section.  I noticed Collection had brought out a new lip colour range and I found these two gems, for only £2.98 each. I got the Cream Puff Lip Cream in Cotton Candy which is a matt vintage pink and the Lock 'N' Load lip gloss in #5 Urban Punk, which is a really gorgeous pearl shimmer and best of all, they work amazingly together.  You can also find both of these at Boots, my only grievance is the Cream Puff only comes in 4 shades and Boots only seem to stock 3 of them!

I am over the moon with this gorgeous satchel bag that I got from ebay last week.  I first saw a very similar one in Raspberry Kisses's recent ebay wish list, that was a pink rucksack version but I decided I liked this style better.  They do this and a couple of other styles in various colour options and various patterns. I love that it has SO many pockets and a really lovely wide faux leather strap, making it very durable for all the tones of stuff I'll end up putting in it.  And of course, it's cream with pink roses on, which is the look I am obsessed with at the moment (if you hadn't noticed already!!)

I have been using a very small, very old brush to apply my powder, for far too long, it's so old I can't even remember where I got it, in fact I think it came with a small set of brushes I given as a gift many years ago.  So I thought it was about time I added a proper brush to my collection and of course, it had to be Real Techniques (because you know how much I love them!!)  I didn't want to just buy a single powder brush at £9 when I could put a few extra pounds and buy this Travel Essentials set from ebay for only £11.95.  With this set you get the lovely big powder brush (which I've already tried out and it works a treat), you could also use it for blusher or bronzer, the small foundation brush, which is also great for concealer as the pointed tip really gets in all the little awkward places like the corner of the eyes and around the nose and lastly the rounded shader brush, which is perfect for an all-over eyeshadow.  All the brushes are so useful and beautifully soft :-)

The last thing I picked up was this adorable little wooden trinket box from The Works stationary shop, I can't believe it was only 99p.  It even has a lovely gold catch on it as well as the heart cut out aperture in the lid.  I'm longing to put my crafty fingers to use on it and try to decide how best to decorate it.  I think it may get either painted or maybe covered with a pretty paper, or fabric. . . hmm we'll see!

So that's it for this little haul, I hope you liked it.  Leave a comment below if you have any of these items already or which one you liked best :-)  Until Next Time Stay Happy
