The Parka

Hello! ^_^

I've accumulated a lot of new clothes over the past months and it would be too much to do one big haul, but just to let you know that everything I'm wearing is new :)

I've been looking for a Parka jacket for a long time now, but in the past every time I wanted to buy one my size would be sold out. However, this year I started the search early and found this beaut from Warehouse. As you probably know good Parkas are usually quite expensive, however Warehouse were having a 25% off deal so I got this jacket  for a good price. The wool lining and fur trim are detachable so it can be taken off and worn as a light jacket in the warmer months.

I'm also in love with these boots that I got from Dorothy Perkins. I had been on the lookout for these kind of boots and was ecstatic when I saw them on the DP website with 25% off (yes, I'm a sucker for a good discount lol) They're not too high and can be paired with almost anything!

Beauty Basics | Mini Make-Up Haul

Hi guuuuuuuys!

I know it's been almost 4 weeks since I've been M.I.A... APOLOGIES! I have missed blogging and I felt so bad for not doing my usual 'welcome to the month' at the beginning of the month. So, for whatever it's worth Welcome to November! :)

Today I'm going to share with you some makeup pieces that I've bought recently as Superdrug are currently having 3 for 2 across all cosmetics, yay!



I'm going to start with this BB cream that I bought by Sleek. I've been looking for a BB cream for ages and when I saw one of my fellow bloggers - Akilah from Perfectly Random post about it I just had to get it. It provides a full coverage and has SPF15. I haven't used it that much yet but I have a good feeling about it :) I got it in shade 'medium'


Another Sleek product in the form of their Brow Kit. Now, I'm not a fan of this whole thick eyebrow thing girls have going on at the moment but my eyebrows are quite thin and I believe that lightly filling them in does the trick. I was previously using an eyebrow pencil from MUA but again have been meaning to buy this for a long time. I'm a big fan of this kit as it gives the brows a natural look but at the same time is buildable to achieve the shade you want.


Next is the Heaven and Earth palette by MUA. I've had this on my to-buy list for a long time but I never got round to buying it. I finally have and I'm a huge fan of the colours given. They are the perfect shades for a natural look and the lighter ones can be used on the brow bone as a highlighter.


This eyeshadow is from MUA and is in shade 20. It is a highly pigmented matte black, and I love it! It can be used wet or dry as an eyeliner or to help achieve a smokey eye. And for £1, great value for money!



And last but not least my favourite mascara, Volum' Express Colossal Cat Eyes by Maybelline. As I said in my Maybe it's Maybelline post I am in love with this mascara, so much so that this is my third time buying it! For a full review click the link, but seriously... I love this mascara.
