Holiday Hauling, Part 1


I went out this morning and picked up a few things that I needed for my holiday. I got quite a lot, but spent a really small amount in comparison to what I got I think!

I thought I'd let you in on the little bits first :)

Primark

I really wanted a cosmetics bag that would be large enough for me to fit everything in, so all my makeup, and also my mini shampoo, conditioner, and all my body products. (I have a small one that I use for my touch ups during the day that I'll be taking too). This one was the perfect size as it was large enough to realistically let me do that, but small enough to make sure I'm not taking half of my bathroom cabinet with me! This was £3 from Primark (the following are also from Primark).

The neon nail varnishes were an impulse buy while I was in the queue, for £2 I thought they were fun and would look great on my toes in the sunny weather <3

The earrings are a regular purchase for me, I always seem to lose the other half to the top two sizes! These were £2.

The neon Aztec inspired cuff was in the sale for £1 and I thought it was too nice to pass up.

The bracelets were actually from the mens department but I really liked the colours and different textures. It was £2 for the set and I can't wait to wear them!

I thought the bright neon hair ties were great fun for £1, and so were the bright bobby pins also at £1 (the plain brown ones were the same price).

The nail file comes with a case which is handy, and was £1.

Superdrug

I picked up some nail varnish remover pads as it's so much easier to use those than to carry a bottle of remover and cotton pads when you're travelling. I believe they were around the £1.50 mark.

I also went to the MUA stand as I'd heard great things from a girl who I work with about the pressed powder. I picked that up in the lightest shade (£1), the curling mascara (£2), the white eyeliner pencil (£1), the blush in shade 1 (£1), and the lip gloss in shade 5 (£1).

That means that for all of the above I paid just above £20!

I'll be back later with the rest of my haul - next up - clothing!

  3. Wow great haul. I always get tempted at Primark till too. I went there the other day and they had loads of new beauty bits. Also, I never think to go in the mens department, but they sometimes have some nice stuff for women too! Love those bracelets :) xx

  5. The MUA pressed powder is good! Also love the cosmetics bag, I would love a Cath Kidston large one, and a smaller makeup bag, maybe I should go to Primark for a compromise! xx

    1. They're pretty good in my opinion and if they get ruined or something spills in them it's not the end of the world! x
