I’m longing for spring and summer so badly, so I’ve purchased some spring and summer shoes that I can hopefully wear soon (meaning when it gets warmer and the current state of the world is better). I’ve also purchased a couple of accessories. I bought everything on Asos.
I love everything purple, and I thought these lilac leather heels from Asos’ own brand would be the perfect spring shoes.
I haven’t had an obsession with a designer shoe brand in a very long time, but for the past couple of months I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Amina Muaddi shoes. Her designs are absolutely stunning, and I’m especially obsessed with the heels that look similar to the heels on this lime green pair of shoes from Asos. When you can’t afford expensive designer shoes, you’ll have to look for more affordable alternatives, and I think these are so fun.
Another popular shoes designer right now is Bottega Veneta with their square designs and quilted designs (see next picture). Once again, I went on the hunt for cheaper alternatives and found these cute bright blue heels from Public Desire. I’m so excited to style these.
And speaking of quilted designs, I just loved these Boohoo sandals. They even have a fun heel, which makes them a bit different. I think these could turn out to be a go-to spring/summer shoe.
And lastly, a couple of accessories. The bag is from Asos own brand, and I just loved the deep burgundy color and the fun buckle. And my obsession with big earrings continues, so I thought these red marble like ones from South Beach would be fun to style.
This is a mixed bag of beauty products that I’ve purchased recently, and I thought I would put them together in a haul. I’ve heard so much about the e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer, so when I found it at my local super market, I decided to give it a go. When I purchased the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette I also got the Velour liquid lipstick in the shade Dominatrix, which has been on my wishlist for so long. The MAC Fix+ is from the new Petal Power collection, and I had to have it, because it’s in the cherry blossom scent, which is my favourite. I’ve been wanting to try the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation for a while as well, so I picked it up recently, and I’ve already tried it out. I’ll be posting a ‘First impressions’ post on it soon. I love the Essence Shine Last & Go! nail polishes and picked up two more shades; 06 Frosted Kiss and 60 Crazy in Love.
When I went grocery shopping today and saw that Essence had a new limited edition collection called Crystal Dreams, and I decided to pick up two products from the collection; the Crystal Dreams luminizer (shade: 01 Frozen Shine) and the Crystal Dreams highlighter (shade: 01 Love at First Light). All the products in the collection seems to be glowy and iridescent, so I’m excited to try these out.
Oh my god! When I first saw the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette I think my heart skipped a beat. Purple has been my favourite colour for as long as I can remember, so I was instantly very intrigued by this palette. The eyeshadow shades are stunning, and the quality of the shades I’ve used so far is the same as the other Jeffree Star palettes; fantastic! The packaging of the palette is so luxurious and so beautiful. You can expect to see lots of eye looks created with this palette from now on.
I’m almost out of my Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Redrum, which is my favourite lipstick, and it’s finally back in stock on Beauty Bay, so I had to get a back up. While I was on the website, I picked up I few other bits. I love the L.A. Girl Shockwave Neon eyeliners, and I didn’t have the shade Electric, so I picked it up. I also love the Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeshadow palettes, and I found that there was new ones, so I picked op two of them; V. I. Purple and Stop Playing Safe. In the pictures underneath you can see close ups of the palettes. They’re so pretty. Lastly, I picked up a crease brush from Wet n Wild as well just to try it out.
I recently bought just a few things from H&M that I want to share with you.
I’ve been wanting one of these long denim skirts for a while, so when I saw this on the H&M website, I had to have it. It’s just what I was looking for, and I can’t wait to wear it.
Polka dots is a huge trend right now, and I loved this midi skirt. I think it’ll be so much fun to style, maybe even with more polka dots.
As the huge Disney fan that I am, I couldn’t resist this cute sweatshirt. I think it’ll look great paired the midi denim skirt.
Lastly, I purchased this belt bag. My everyday black leather belt bag was almost falling apart, so I need a new everyday bag and decided to give this one a go. So far I’m really liking it.
I love limited edition collections from MAC, and this year’s spring collection is really simple yet really pretty. The collection is called Loud and Clear, and I purchased two products from the collection. I also purchased one of the new Glow Play blushes.
Of course I had to get one of the lipsticks from the collection. This is the shade Sugar Sweet Cameo, and it has a matte finish. It’s described as a midtone coral pink.
I also purchased the lighter shade of the two Extra Dimension Skinfinishes. It’s called Postmodernist Peach, and it’s described as a warm peachy gold. I’m wearing it today, and it’s really pretty.
MAC has created a new blush formula, which is a bouncy blush; it’s kind of a hybrid between a cream and a powder blush. I chose the shade Grand, which is described as a petal pink. I’ve applied it with both my fingers and a stippling brush and it’s works both ways. I might get a few more of these in the future.
This is part 2 of my January sales Zalando + Asos haul. These are the jewellery I’ve purchased in the January sales; they’re all earrings + one ring.
I really want to experiment more with earrings, so I’ve purchased a bunch of different fun pairs. These two pairs are from Topshop, and I really liked the chunky silver styles.
The rest of the items in this haul are from Asos. This pair is by the brand Reclaimed Vintage, and I liked that the two earrings are different.
I got two pairs of earrings from the brand Nylon. I’ve worn the marble-like ones already, and I loved them. I’m also really excited about styling the colourful pair.
This neon orange pair of earrings is from the brand Liars & Lovers, and they’re so fun and bright.
These little tortoiseshell hearts are from Asos’ own brand. I’ve already worn this pair as well, and they’re so cute.
Lastly, I’ve purchased this pinky ring from Asos’ own brand, and I’ve worn it almost every day since I received it.
