Collective Fashion & Beauty Haul!

so somehow i've ended up with enough bits and pieces to warrant another collective haul - i'm blaming some super good offers, and the fact that the only thing to cheer me up from a 3-day bad mood was, of course, retail therapy. these bits have been collected over three or four shopping trips, and not all in one go, not that that makes it any better. 
also, sorry that i haven't edited the pictures in this post - my laptop has gone in for repairs, so i'm borrowing the family one and it doesn't have the right programmes on it.

what's a girl to do when Superdrug have 3 for 2?! spend money she didn't need to seems to be the answer. i did actually have 6 things in my hand, but was good and cut down to things i actually wanted. first i picked up the new Maybelline Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara. i didn't need a new mascara at all, but the gel-mousse formula really intrigued me, aswell as the flex brush. unfortunately it's not waterproof which is something i always go for in a mascara, but i'll give it a go and hopefully they'll bring out a waterproof version  if i like it. second i snapped up this Revlon Lip Butter in the shade Juicy Papaya. i'd originally picked up one of the Maybelline versions of this, but swapped to Revlon as the shade was more subtle and better for everyday wear. peaches and corals are the only lip colour which i think suits me, so this shade was perfect. i also then picked up L'Oreals Glam Shine Stain Splash in 200 Princess. i swatched this over the Revlon lip butter and it really bought out the colour, so that was my 3 for 2 haul. all of these were £7.99 each if anyone is interested, and i will eventually get round to reviewing them! 

i've been going a bit skincare crazy lately, and i'm not sure why. three of these were just replacements - the Dove deodorant (£5.29, Superdrug), Dove Summer Glow (£2.49, Savers) and the Simple wipes (£2, Superdrug) - so i picked them up whilst i was in a spending mood yesterday. the other bits i've picked up recently are the L'Oreal Gentle Eye Make-Up remover, which i wanted to try after seeing someone review it on the Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle Bloggers Facebook Page. i hate, hate, hate scrubbing at my eyes to get make-up off, especially as i wear waterproof mascara, so i'm hoping this will work wonders. it was on a buy one get one free offer in Tescos this week which is why i got two for just £3.49. i also wanted to try their new Micellar water, but i do still have a little Bioderma left which brings me onto the next product... i went to Westfield recently and picked up this B Pure Micellar Water (£4.99) to replace my Bioderma when it runs out, so i already had this before i saw L'Oreal's version. B products were also on a buy one get one half price offer so i also picked up the Exfoliating Cleanser (£5.49) which i'm loving so far - it has really tiny little beads in it and is working a treat. on top of that offer, my friend Pia who i was with, gets 30% off Superdrugs own products so i got these for just over £5 - bargain!

i picked the batiste dry shampoo up yesterday as i've run out of my current one, and it was on offer for just £2.48 in Superdrug. then the other three products i picked up in Tesco's on their 3 for 2 haircare offer. i got the got2b Salt Spray (£4.99) after my friend recommended it to me, and i'm really liking it so far - it doesn't leave my hair crispy like other salt sprays i've tried. i then picked up the Tresemme Heat Defence Spray (£4.69) as i don't have anything that solely concentrates on heat defence and then the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion (£6.00). again, i'll get round to reviewing these at some point. 


most of my wardrobe seems to be ASOS these days, so when i saw online that they were doing a denim version of their disco pants (i used to live in my black pair), i knew i had to snap them up. i've been after a high-waisted jean for ages that actually fits properly, and these are the perfect fit - the fact that they're more of a legging makes them super snug! i then ended up back on the website a few days later and saw that they had them in a light wash, so i got those too! they did cost £30 each, but if you want these, i'd suggest you buy them now as ASOS currently have 20% NUS discount. i also picked up this coral top (£12) in an attempt to brighten up my wardrobe for spring and summer. i also love the back of it, although i'm not too sure when i'll actually be able to wear it. finally, i picked up these adorable and new favourite pyjama bottoms from Gilly Hicks - they've recently opened up a store at my local outlet village, so i picked these up for just £7.90 when they had £29 on the label - an absolute steal! 

so yes, that's all. too much money spent once again. help me, someone! 

have any of you been on a little spree recently? i'd love to see your posts if you have!
