Haul | EG

Over the past few weeks,I have spent alot of money. I did earn it all myself, so is there really any problem? Personally, I love shopping and looking at the newest things in, whether it be makeup, home or clothes. 
Here’s a few of the things I’ve purchased over the last few weeks.

  
First, I’ve got to start off with my favourite purchase. I’ve been looking at Real Techniques brushes ever since I’ve got in to makeup. Most people dream of having five, and luckily I was able to get my hands on the deluxe gift set. I purchased this from tk maxx, which I actually think is my new favourite shop. These cost me just £20.99!  One of these brushes usually sells for around £15-25, so I knew I had to get these when I saw them. My favourite brush is the tapered foundation brush. I also really enjoy using the angled highlighter brush.

  
Another beauty item that I bought is the Barry M Flawless Colour Correctiong Primer. This is my dream primer. It claims to correct redness, smooth and mattify skin and minimise pores. I can tell you that it does all of this! I used it today and my skin had no redness and my makeup stayed matte all day. This cost me £4.99 ( I think ) and was buy one get one half price, so I also picked up a nail varnish.

  
The next thing I purchased was from Primark. Since its started to become sunnier I decided I would buy some more Spring tops. I picked this up for around £6 and it is a knitted tank top. It has a high square neck with thin straps and is kind of ribbed. The pattern is really pretty and the burgundy colour look great with a denim skirt or shorts.

  
The next thing I am extremely excited about. I think most people have heard of Brandy Melville. They sell the kind of clothes you would see on tumblr or on a polyvore board. These knitted tops from Primark are dupes for the Brandy ones and were only £6 each? I got a white and a dark grey, but they also had a striped one. These are really cute and would look great with some shorts. They are thick knitted, which means they will still keep you warm even though they are sleeveless.

Have you guys bought anything you love recently?

Have a lovely day!

Mini Haul | EG

Recently I went into town with some of my friends and bought a few things. After not blogging for a week or two I thought it was about time I wrote something up for you guys.

These are just the bits of makeup that I bought from a few places.  

After seeing that primark have a huge new make up range, I decided to try their new bb cream. I prefer using bb cream to foundation because it sits nicer on my face and gives my skin a more even look.

  
I got one of lightest ones because im quite pale and I definitely didn’t want the dreaded orange line along my jaw. From the picture, you can see that it matches my skin nicely and is not cakes. Of course, I only did a swatch and didn’t rub it in as I would on my face.

Personally, I really like this product. It smells slightly like cucumber which is really refreshing and it is also very moisturising. However it isn’t extremely pigmented, but when it’s priced at only £2.50 I’m not going to complain that it isn’t Mac quality.

The next thing I bought was a concealer. In the T.J Hughes in my city centre they sell all of the w7 range and loads of nice makeup. I decided to pick up the ‘go’ concealer as it seems pretty similar to my benefit ‘boi-ing’ concealer and I don’t want to run out of it.

                   
The ‘go’ concealer is extremely similar to the benefit concealer because it has the same consistency and colour. I actually got a lighter colour in the w7 concealer so it will lighten my under eyes. I like using a wax concealer because I find that it lasts alt longer than liquid. I got this for just £2.99 which I think is great considering how similar it is to the benefit concealer.

The next thing I got was another mascara. I currently use the waterproof max volume flash by rimmel. This is the best mascara I’ve ever used, I find that it looks even nicer on my lashes than the ‘they’re real’ by benefit. This isn’t on sale anymore, so I picked one up in T.J Hughes for just £3.99.

The last thing I bought is definitely my favourite. Primark have also started doing lip crayons and when I saw this one I fell in love with it.

  

It’s a velvet matte lip crayon and was just £2! It feels really lovely to apply and doesn’t dry my lips. It is quite a cool toned brown-pink colour. Combined with a lighter pnik nude colour it looks really nice with some shadows from the w7 in the nude palette.

Have you guys bought any new things you love?

Have a lovely day!

Mini Haul | EG♡

I can’t stop buying things suddenly. I’ve found that shops are getting out of the summer stuff and in to the best bit… Autumn!

  
max factor masacara- boots

ps love liquid eyeliner- primark

lace up shoes- primark

jumper – new look

hand gel- primark

This mascara is so good! I find it keeps the curl in my eyelashes. It’s waterproof, so it’s hard to get off but it doesn’t smudge. The eyeliner was only a £1 from primark so I thought I’d try it out. It’s actually really good! It has great staying power and the brush is thin and really accurate.

I’ve been looking at shoe similar to these from asos for aggeeess but I couldn’t justify paying £28 for flats I knew would wear thin. When I saw these in primark I knew I had to have them. They also had a nude colour. I got a size smaller because the point seemed to add a lot of length. They look so pretty with skinny jeans or skirts and make it look quite sophisticated.

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I have this jumper in 3 colours. This is the most recent addition. I wore it today and it’s so so comfy and really soft. The colour is really autumnal and looks lovely with jeans and boots.

I know Christmas is ages away but I couldn’t resist having this hand gel! It smells like ginger bread and I’m in love. I love Christmas so much ( who doesn’t ) and I don’t care that I’m starting this early!

Do you have any favourites?

Have a lovely day!

my skincare | EG♡

Hi everyone! Today I have spot about my skincare. Recently I’ve been really getting in to looking after my skin. I’ve been using different products and just taking more care of it.

  
First I’ll wash my face using clean and clear scrub and cream in the shower. After that I splash my face with cold water to close my pores.

Once my face is dry, I apply after sun to it. I use after sun because it is a lot lighter than other moisturisers but it still locks in moisture and keeps my skin smooth.

I apply Nivea soft moisturiser to my legs and then once it has sunk in a rub doves summer glow on them. This gives the a nice colour since I’m so pale. It just makes my legs look a bit less pale.

In the morning I use primarks oil balancing facial wipes and antomicals no old bags allowed eye gel. After this I will do my hair and things like that.

Since I’ve been getting into skincare, I would like to invest in some more natural products because I’m sure adding all of these chemicals isn’t good in the long run. For short term they make my skin feel lovely, but I will definitely be buying some of lush’s natural moisturisers and cleansers.

Do you guys have any recommendations? Do you have a skincare routine?

Have a lovely day!

holiday outfit night #6 | EG♡

Another post? Once again I forgot to post outfit five yesterday so I have two posts today! I don’t know how I forgot really considering I’m not really that busy. But anyways! We went out for a meal and I had the best profiteroles I’ve ever had! They came with so much chocolate sauce – always a priority. I wore a really comfy and chilled outfit because I didn’t really want to get ‘ dressed up ‘ plus we went to the beach.

                   
top – topshop

shorts – primark

shoes – topshop

anklet – little shop

bracelet – another little shop 🙂 

This was so comfy, it was literally like wearing pyjamas. I can’t complain really!

My shorts have an Aztec kind of pattern on them and are very light and comfy. This was great considering the heat and humidity of the air over here. They have a coral pink lining and are very easy to match with a lot of items.

I have this white top in pink as well. It’s a nice tee that can be paired with anything from jeans to skirts and is very easy to wear. I always buy white clothes and I just love them. The bottom of this top is scalloped and very pretty.

My jewellery was simple and I wore silver. My bracelet has two little charms on it and my anklet has Hamas hands on it.

My shoes are literally in every outfit post! They go with everything though, you can’t blame me 🙂

Have a lovely day!

holiday outfit night #4 | EG♡

Two posts in one day? I forgot to post yesterday so I have two outfits for you today! If you guys want to seethed things along with what I’m wearing on holiday comment below! I’d love to know what you’d like to see. This may be my favourite outfit so far. It looked a lot nicer on than it does lying down.

                   
top – topshop

skort – primark

shoes – topshop

bracelet – boutique 

anklet – independent shop

I’m in love with this skort! It’s SO comfy and the colours are gorgeous! The mint green and orange go really well together. I wore a white top and shoes with this to keep it simple and make the skort the main focus. It’s made of a very light material and is very comfy to wear. I think it was £6 from primark which is bargain of the century if you ask me!

I have this top in three varieties! It’s just so comfy and matches with everything. I did buy the yellow version of it but it was really yellow which didn’t look very good on me. The white matches everything and looks good with any type of bottoms you wear!

My skaters shoes look a bit worse for wear. I do have some brand new ones back at home but I decided I didn’t want to break them in on holiday because they were quite sore without pop socks. But now they’re really comfy and I wear them everywhere! ( as you can see )

My bracelet and anklet will probably be worn every day as they are simple and match everything. I prefer wearing small jewellery as I think it suits me more than bold pieces.

Have a lovely day!

florals | EG♡

More clothes! I love putting outfits together and seeing which items I have match. It also means I have loads of outfit that I know I can wear. This one is all floral and pretty. It has light colours so it’s perfect for summer.

  
Bardot top – topshop

floral skort – primark

t bar shoes – topshop

backpack – primark

sunglasses – españaaaa!

perfume – one direction ‘our moment’

drink – Norwegian drink

I looove the way this outift looks. I can’t wait for the weather to pick up so I can wear it. 

My favourite thing about the Bardot top is that you can wear it on or off your shoulders. 

The skort was only £6 from primark and is a lovely mint green colour. It also has orange accents in it. 

This backpack is so cute! It has little tassels on the end of the cords and matches with basically everything. 

My t bars are from two years ago and I wore them everyday of the holidays! ( I’m not even kidding ) they have lasted so well and are still as cute as when I first got them.

Have a lovely day!
