What I bought #2


As I said in my last post I went to the Trafford Centre the other day with my boyfriend, so this is just a haul post so I can show you all what I bought :)

 1/ Blue floral bra - Asda £4 2/ Pink bra - Asda £4 (similar)
3/ Bleach ankle grazer jean - Dorothy Perkins £28

These are the clothing items I bought. I've gone up a bra size recently (finally) so treated myself to some new bras (that actually fit) from Asda. I've splurged out in the past on La Senza etc bra's but it does my head in when I spend like £20+ on a bra and love it, then when I put it in the wash it goes out of shape. I heard one of my girlfriends go on about how much she loved Asda bras and how comfy they are so thought I'd go for them this time. These two were only £4 each, I've worn and washed the blue one and it's amazingly comfy and hasn't gone out of shape yet so I can't fault them whatsoever. The jeans are just light denim ankle grazers that have a few rips down the leg, most of my jeans are either black or indigo so I went for some lighter ones for summer. They're stretch denim as well so hopefully they'll be comfy when it's warm.

 1/ Owl bracelet - Forever 21 £3.15  2/ Pastel pink cross necklace - Forever 21 £2ish
3/ Cosmetic brush set - Forever 21 £3.90

Next I went into forever 21 and picked up these three things. I've never seen any clothes in there that I like, I think some of the stuff looks really cheap for the price but that's just me, I'm super fussy about clothes. However, the jewellery is so nice and so cheap, it's like a better version of Primark! The quality is really good too the bracelet is really heavy and well made. For £3 it's an absolute bargain. I haven't worn the necklace yet, but I'm sure it'll be in an outfit post at some point this summer. 
Also, I saw these cosmetic bushes by the till as I was paying for my jewellery. I kind of went off the quality of the jewellery, and assumed they'd be really good even though they were cheap, and I was so right. In the past I've payed around £7 just for a foundation brush (which is ridiculous, I know) and I'm gutted now I've discovered these. They're not the BEST quality but I always end up losing mine so I'd rather pay less.

1/ Revlon nearly naked powder in Fair - Superdrug £7.99  
2/ Palmer's cocoa butter - Superdrug £1.50 (travel size)
3/ Look Fat Lips! lipstick in snog - Superdrug £6
4/ Revlon just bitten kissable balm in Rendez-Vous - Superdrug £7.99

Top - Revlon just bitten balm 
Bottom - Look fat lips! balm

I saw Superdrug had 3 for 2 on all cosmetics so of course I had to buy something (or a few things!) I was first drawn to a brand I'd never hear of before 'Look' and I saw this tinted lip balm stick thingy, it kind of reminded me of the Clinique Chubby Sticks. I also wanted to try some Revlon make up as I've never owned any of their range either. I was drawn to their tinted lip balm too and when I saw this coral shade I couldn't resist buying it, seriously it's such an amazing colour. As you can see in the swatches (above) they're not like lipstick the colour is slightly transparent and really light, perfect for wearing every day. 
After seeing the advert for the Nearly Naked foundation with Emma Stone in it I wanted to try their powder foundation, she looks absolutely gorgeous in it! I also just picked up this travel sized bottle of Palmers Cocoa butter near the till simply because it smelled like chocolate (oops!).

And that's everything I bought! Hope you liked my haul :)
