Collective haul October part 1

Today’s haul is part 1 of a collective haul from October last year. This part includes clothes, shoes, and accessories.

The clothes part consists of two pairs of trousers. The brown corduroy trousers are from H&M, and the pink, orange and brown patterned ones are from PULL&BEAR. I recently posted an outfit featuring the PULL&BEAR pair.

I featured these black Crocs sandals in my 2021 November favourites post though at that time they were decorated with Christmas Jibbits. However, I actually purchased these 90’s inspired Jibbits at the same time as I purchased the Crocs, and these are living on them right now. I wear these indoors daily.

The rest of this haul are accessories and I purchased all of them from Asos. This bag is from Asos Design, and I just loved the colours and the shape.

These sage green tights are also from Asos Design, and I really like these, but I like all coloured tights.

Next up – jewellery. The first two pc of earrings are from Reclaimed Vintage, and I especially like the green ones. The rhinestone ones and the gold hoops are both from Asos Design, and the ring is from Big Metal London. I’ve worn the ring quite a bit.

Last item in part 1 of this collective haul is this pretty hair clip. It’s also from Asos Design.

Small Asos haul (early October)

I have a small Asos haul to share with you today. These are items I purchased in early October last year. Let’s start with shoes and then do accessories afterwards.

You’ve already seen me wear these in a couple of outfit posts. These boots are from Miss Selfridge and I didn’t have a pair of boots in this shade of purple, and it’s probably my favourite shade of purple.

These patchwork loafers are from Asos Design, and they’re so fun. I think I’ve only worn them once so far, but I have to wear them again soon.

I love colourful tights, and I absolutely needed a pair of lilac ones in my wardrobe. These are from Asos Design.

I picked up three rings. The silver one with the rainbow rhinestone is from the brand Kingsley Ryan, and I’ve worn it a lot. The golden one with the pearls is from the brand True Decadence, and the other golden ring is from Asos Design. I decided to gift the last ring to my youngest sister, because I thought she would like it.

The last item in this haul is a big checkered pink hair clip from Asos Design. I still love big hair clips and hair accessories in generel, and I’ve worn this hair clip quite a bit.

Collective haul (September)

It’s time for a collective haul. These are all things I purchased back in September 2021, and there’s a mix of clothes, shoes, and make-up.

Let’s start with clothes. This jumper is by Asos Design and I love it! I really like sheep, and I just think this jumper is so cute.

Here’s another cute item. This sweater vest is from Stradivarius, and I of course love the Mickey Mouse print, but I also love the pink and red colours together.

I love fun, patterned jeans, and I really like this pair from PULL&BEAR.

I also love fun patterned and/or colourful tights. The first pair is by Asos Design, and the second pair is by a brand called Sneaky Fox.

Jurassic Park is my favourite film (together with Breakfast At Tiffany’s), so I had to have these Jurassic Park x Reebok sneakers. They have even more details on the back, and I just think they’re awesome.

And now on to the make-up. I picked up three powders, two blushers, and a back-up of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze, which is my favourite brow product. One of the powders that I picked up on a separate occasion from the others was the Catrice HD Baking & Setting loose powder in C01 Translucent. The packaging is a bit annoying, so I actually haven’t used it much yet.

The other two powders I picked up were the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder and the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop mattifying powder in 01 Fair. I haven’t used the NYX one that much, but I’m obsessed with the Laura Mercier one. I think it might be my new favourite powder.

And lastly, the two blushers that I purchased were the Dior Backstage Rosy Glow blush in 001 Pink and the Clinique Cheek Pop Pearl blush in 05 Ruby Pop. I’ve already featured the Clinique blush in several posts, and I love it! The Dior blush went viral at some point, and it’s super pretty, but I actually haven’t worn it much yet, since it’s not a shade I go for very often.

Asos sale haul + new Nike AF1

Today’s haul is an Asos sale haul (mostly). It includes shoes, clothes, accessories, and make-up. So let’s get started.

The only thing in this haul that I didn’t get on sale are these Nike Air Force 1 Crater Flyknit MOVE TO ZERO sneakers. I’d been wanting them for a while, and at some point I finally decided to get them. I love the colours and the knitted fabric, and they’re very comfy.

The other pair of shoes in this haul I’ve been kind of obsessed with. I mean, how stunning are these green leather boots from Asos Design! I love the colour, the shape, and everything else about these boots, and I’ve worn them a lot.

And now on to a couple of T-shirts. The purple T-shirt with Mickey Mouse on it is from Daisy Street, and the navy one with the basketball playing skeleton T-Rex is from Adidas.

I also purchased two Christmas T-shirts on sale both from Asos Design. It’s always a good idea to get your Christmas clothes early and on sale.

Let’s get in to the accessories. I purchased the matching necklace to the earrings in this haul, because I thought it would be cute to wear them together. I also got a cute pair of flower earrings from Monki.

Then I also picked up a pair of reddish brown sunglasses and some big hair clips from Asos Design.

And last, but not least, make-up. I’ve already talked about the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter in my latest 5 favourites post, and I really enjoy this product (mostly). I’ve got the shade 1 Fair. I also picked up the Huda Beauty Glowish Soft Radiance bronzing powder in 1 Light, which is a very pretty bronzer.

The last three make-up items I picked up are the Huda Beauty Easy Bake powder in Sugar Cookie, the NYX Sweet Cheeks Glow blush in Silence Is Golden, and NYX Brow Glue Instant brow styler. I really don’t like the packaging on the Huda Beauty powder, and it has a very strong perfumy scent, so I actually haven’t worn it that much, but I’ve liked the way it looks when I’ve worn it. I love the NYX Sweet Cheeks Matte blush in Silence Is Golden, so I really wanted the glowy version as well. They’re both such great yellow blushers. I think I like the NYX Brow Glue Instant brow styler, but it is very sticky. I don’t reach for it very often, because I pretty much always go for the ABH Brow Freeze.

Asos 20% off haul

I have a small Asos haul to share with you today. I got everything 20% off.

First I picked up this 70’s inspired floral dress from Asos Design. It’s so cute and comfortable.

I loved Bratz dolls growing up, so I thought this T-shirt would be fun to have in my wardrobe. It’s from Daisy Street.

I prefer to wear biker shorts under my skirts and dresses in the summer, so I picked up these cute floral ones from Asos Design.

I love these Mary Janes! They’re my favourite item from this haul, and you’ve already seen me wear them in several outfit posts. They’re from Asos Design.

Lastly, I have a few accessories to share with you as well. Both the white flower ring and lilac headband are from Asos Design, and the Minnie Mouse headband is from Disney. I use the Minnie Mouse headband every day when I do my make-up.

Collective haul (late July/early August)

It’s time for a collective haul. It’s a mix of shoes, accessories, and make-up. I puchased these things in late July and early August.

I’ve finally gotten around to show you the first pair of Crocs sandals I purchased last year. These are super colourful and summery, and even though I’ve mainly worn them at home, I’ve also worn them at work once and on a brunch date. I never thought that I would love a pair of Crocs, but I love both pairs I own. Btw, the Jibbitz are purchased separately.

I love Nike Air Force 1’s and I love lilac, so this was an easy purchase for me. What can I say, I love these sneakers.

The next three pairs of shoes (and the last ones in this haul) are all from Monki. I already owned the black version of the Mary Janes, and I love them, so I had to get them in white as well. I felt like I needed a pair of lace up boots, and I loved that the shape and heel are similar to the shape and heel of the Mary Janes. And lasty, how could I pass on the black and white checked knee high boots. I love the 60’s go go boots vibes.

Next up, a two pc of 70’s inspired scarves and the prettiest brown, pink and mustard colours. These are from Stradivarius.

And now on to the make-up. I purchased three products from Essence’s summer collection called Vintage Beach. I got the Essence Vintage Beach sea salt hair spray in 01 Salty Hair, I Mist You, the Essence Vintage Beach baked highlighter in 01 Sun, Sand, Me and Vitamin Sea, and the Essence Vintage Beach eyeshadow palette in 01 Sky Above. Sand Below. Peace Within. I’ve already gotten rid of the sea salt hair spray, because it didn’t work at all.

Here’s a closer look at the highlighter. It’s quite subtle, but pretty; I like the swirly design.

The eyeshadow palette is pretty too, and I remember the quality to be nice, but I have to try it again soon to make sure that I want to keep it around.

From Juvia’s Place I picked up the nourishing lip balm in 01 Peppermint, and I’ve used this so much. Peppermint is one of my absolute favourite scents, so I love the scent of this lip balm, but I love the formula and feeling on the lips as well.

Last, but certainly not least, I puchased six of the new (at least they were new at the time) Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks. I picked up Forbitten Fruit (raspberry), I’m Vulgar (metallic magenta), Psychedelic Witch (muted mustard yellow), Deep Pockets (brown with yellow undertone), Special Order (deep yellow), and Cavity (neon doll pink). I think these are such fun and quite unique colours.

5 favourites – November

Yes! December is finally here. Well, by tomorrow it is. November just flew by, which I don’t mind, because I’m just waiting for December to arrive anyways. So let’s just jump right to it and talk about some favourites from the month of November.

Black Crocs sandals w. Christmas Jibbitz: I never thought that I would get myself a pair of Crocs, and I still don’t think that I would get a pair of original Crocs, but I really like this sandal version. This black pair which is now decorated with Christmas themed Jibbitz I wear as indoors slippers, and I think they’re adorable, super festive, and really comfortable.

Wet n Wild Prime & Set Prime Focus The Impossible Primer: I haven’t hauled most of the things in this haul including this primer from Wet n Wild. However, I really like this primer, so I had to feature it. It has the texture of a silicone based primer, but it’s silicone free. It feels cooling and soft on the skin and creates a great base for your foundation.

Catrice True Skin Hydrating foundation (shade: 004 Neutral Porcelain): Speaking of foundation, this Catrice foundation has been one of my go-to foundations lately. I first purchased it in another shade, but it was a little too light actually (I can make it work though), but this shade is perfect. I love the finish and coverage too. It’s just such a good and affordable foundation.

Wishful Honey Whip Peptide moisturizer: I also have a skincare favourite this month. I’ve heard great things about this moisturiser from Wishful, and I don’t know if it’s only due to this product, but my skin has looked a lot better lately; better than it has in a very long time. This is a mini, but I might get the full size at some point.

Dead Poets Society (film): I know, how can I not have watched this film until now? Trust me, I’ve been wanting to watch this classic for years. Now I finally have, and I loved it. Being a teacher myself, this film really got to me. It’s such an inspiring story and a beautiful film.

5 favourites – October

Happy Halloween! I can’t believe that we’ll be in November by toworrow. Time really flies. But at this time of the year, I don’t mind, because it only means that we’re getting closer and closer to December and Christmas time, which you might have noticed is my favourite time of the year. But first, I’ll be celebrating Halloween tonight by watching “The Nightmare Before Christmas” while eating Halloween sweets, and I’m pretty excited about that as well. But before I get to that I’m going to share a few favourites from the month of October with you.

Converse Run Star Hike pride sneakers: These have been my go-to sneakers this past month. They’re the most comfortable Converse I’ve ever owned, and I love that they’re a plain white with all the rainbow details. They just go with so many outfits.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder: I’m still way behind on hauls, so I haven’t posted anything about this powder yet. However, I get why people love this powder, because so do I. It just looks and feels so smooth on the skin all day. I’m so glad that I finally decided to try it out.

Catrice HD Active Performance Freezing spray: I don’t often steer away from Urban Decay All Nighter when it comes to setting sprays, but I have to say that I’ve really been enjoying this spray from Catrice. As it says on the lid, it’s very cooling and refreshing, and I also think it makes a difference when it comes to keeping the make-up in place all day.

Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla tea: This tea has actually been a favourite for over a year, maybe almost two years, and I can’t believe that I haven’t featured it in a favourites post until now. It doesn’t contain caffeine, so it’s the perfect evening tea, and I drink a cup most evenings. And if you like vanilla, you would like this.

About Time (film): I’d heard and read that this was supposed to be a really good film, but for some reason I wasn’t intrigued by the time travelling premise, but when I visited my parents last week my mum had it on DVD and we decided to watch it, and I’m glad we did. Even though the time travelling is a bit strange, it’s a great romantic story, and it you like those, you would probably like this film.

Zalando haul (June)

Today I have a Zalando haul to share with you. It’s a mix of clothes, shoes, accessories, and make-up. I purchased these items in June.

I have this style of skirt from Monki in quite a few colour ways and patterns, but I had to add this cute, floral one to my wardrobe as well. It’s just the perfect summer skirt in my opinion.

I really like this style of vest/tank top, so I purchased this two pack from Monki on sale with an orange and a black one.

Monki makes really cute shoes, and these two pairs of strappy block heel sandals are no exception. I loved wearing both pairs this past summer.

I also purchased another pair of strappy sandals. These are from Mango, and they’re really cute as well.

The last pair of shoes in this haul I featured in my June favourites, and they’re one of my best summer purchases. They’re from Teva, and they are so comfortable, and I’ve worn them so much.

I’d been eyeing these multicoloured rhinestone earrings from Topshop for so long, and when I found them on sale, I had to get them. I’m so glad that I did, because I’ve worn them quite a bit.

In my last haul, I featured the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books Ariel/The Little Mermaid collection, and I also mentioned that there would be more Disney make-up in future hauls. This is one of those hauls, because I purchased more I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palettes and heart highlighters. First off, we have the Belle/Beauty and the Beast palette and highlighter.

I also purchased the Cinderella palette and highlighter.

And lastly, I purchased the Tiana/The Princess and the Frog palette (the highlighter was too deep for me).

These are the rest of the make-up products. I purchased the Maybelline Fit Me Primer Luminous & Smooth primer, the MAC Studio Fix Sculpt And Shape Contour palette in Light/Medium, the MAC Prep + Prime Transparent finishing powder, and the Pixi On-The-Glow blush in the shade Juicy.

Here’s a closer look at the contour palette. I’ve not been contouring in years, but this palette has gotten me back in to it a little bit. I still don’t contour every day, but I do it sometimes, and I really enjoy using this palette. I really like the setting/finishing powders as well as the contour shades.

Asos haul – shoes, accessories, and make-up

It’s time for another Asos haul. This haul is a mix of shoes, accessories, and make-up.

I’ve purchased two pairs of Converse. These ones are the Chuck Taylor Lift Sunshine sneakers, and I just love the colours. They’re so perfect for ’70s inspired looks.

The other pair that I got are the Run Star Hike pride sneakers. I’ve been wanting a pair of Run Star Hike sneakers, and this rainbow version seemed perfect. They’re so fun and comfortable.

Let’s move on to accessories. I picked up these gold coloured bracelets from Asos’ own brand, because I always seem to miss gold coloured bracelets in my jewellery collection. I’ve worn all of these, and I really like them.

These are the rest of the accessories – all from Asos own brand. My favourites are the lime earrings and the dinosaur key ring (which I’ve been using as a bag charm).

For make-up I’ve got two I Heart Revolution x Disney collections to share with you. The first one is the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palette, heart highlighter, and lipgloss in Ariel/The Little Mermaid.

The palette looks like and opens like a book, and on the left side you get three blushers and three highlighters, and on the right side you get 18 eyeshadows.

And here’s a closer look at the heart highlighter; so pretty.

The second I Heart Revolution x Disney collection that I got is the The Aristocats Marie collection. I picked up the eyeshadow palette and two highlighters.

This is what the palette looks like on the inside. It’s so cute with the little paw prints in the matte eyeshadows.

The two highlighters are called Duchess (a light gold) and Beloved (a light pink). They’re both very pretty. There will be more Disney make-up in upcoming hauls:)
