A Small Haul

A little clarification  - I am far from an impulse shopper. Hence the 'small' in the title. I'm the type of person who spends days or even weeks contemplating whether or not to buy something. This time, however, I ditched the intricate detail and jumped right into spontaneous mode.

New Look Brushes
As I was aimlessly browsing New Look, I stumbled across these gorgeous gold make up brushes. Besides the packaging being right up my street, I also wanted to give these a try as they're from new Look. This may seem a strange reason for my acquisition but hear me out. It's 2018 and the Beauty industry is still flourishing strongly, therefore we are getting bombarded with more and more products, brushes being no exception. That being said, this year I've made it my goal to try out new brands and see if they deserve more recognition. From the little time I've had them, I can can conclude that they are soft, good quality brushes.

I did this shop a couple of weeks ago so you may recognise this Urban decay Ultimate basics palette from my Best of Beauty Post where I mentioned my mind-blowing half price deal. Ironically, this palette is perfectly filled with my 'ultimate' shades - neutrals. If you relate to me in being a fan of buttery, pigmented shadows then this is the palette for you.

Mac Lipstick - Spirit
For starters, Macs signature satin formula is unbeatable. Secondly, this brown/nude colour combo is through the roof. And last but not least, this is incredible!

New Look Jumper
Lastly, (it really is a small haul!), we have a personal favourite of mine, this cropped mustard jumper. This colour is something that was really lacking in my wardrobe and I thought it was about time I fixed that. However, if you'd like it a fraction less cropped and a looser fit, I'd recommend going a size or two up.

Thank you for reading! Feel free to leave a comment, are you a shopaholic or far from it?



  1. I'm not a shopaholic, but I do have my moments. So that means that most of my purchases are well researched and considered, but there is the odd Saturday when I find myself in town with a couple of shopping bags full of things I don't really need. Most probably it's because I've been sucked in by a discount/offer/colour. :D Thankfully those days are few and far between - don't think my wallet would be too happy otherwise!

    1. Haha, exactly the same here. Honestly, I come into shops with no intentions yet the sales somehow always get the better of me!

  2. Wish I was this, I'm a complete shopaholic x
