Haul - (Zara, Forever 21, Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Boots)

Hey ladies! I Recently went to Birmingham for a couple of days to watch Nicki Minaj perform (which was amazing!) anyway the next day I did a spot of shopping at the Bullring shopping centre and picked up a few things, mostly jewelry and a couple of clothing and beauty bits, so I thought I would show you what I got...

Firstly I don't know why but I picked up quite a few pieces of jewelry, a couple of things from Topshop, a bracelet from Miss Selfridge and lastly a ring from the place I was most looking forward to going, Forever 21! I have never been too one before! I spent a long time in there looking around, but it was a bit overwhelming as the store was so big! I only ended up getting a Rose gold ring but I do love it.

Topshop ring - £8.50

Topshop Bracelets - £16.50

Miss Selfridge Bracelet - £6.50

Forever 21 Rose Gold Ring - £3.15

I then went to Zara and got a black blazer.
I picked it up in white a couple of days before going up to Birmingham and loved it so much I had to get the black too, I've been trying to find a nice blazer for a long time but every one I tried on didn't fit me right, but the Zara one fits lovely and I think it is a pretty good price as they are really nice quality and considering some of the Topshop Blazers I've seen that are similar are £65. I also picked up some black skinny jeans from Zara aswell but didn't take a picture as I didn't think they were that interesting! but I really like the fit and they were only £25.99, Bargain!

Zara Blazer - £49.99

Zara Blazer - £49.99

 The last place I went was Boots. I had a No7 £5 off voucher I wanted to use so I got a lip pencil in Nude which was £7.50 so it worked out at £2.50, you cant go wrong! I also picked up the impress press on manicure, I absolutely love the design of them I think they are so colourful and pretty - perfect for summer, I can't wait to try them out.

 No7 lip pencil in Nude - £7.50

impress Press On Manicure - £8.99

So that was everything I got I hope you enjoyed this post!

Head Over Heels - Topshop Cream Blush

Hey ladies, today I thought I would share with you a recent purchase of mine, Topshop cream blush in Head Over Heels, it's actually the first make-up product I've tried from Topshop, I've tried their nail polishes before and I love them! but I've never tried any make-up I don't know why I haven't! I've heard great things about their make-up line especially their blushes, and have always had my eye on 'head over heels' but never got round to picking it up! well up until recently of course!

from left to right: blended out swatch, normal swatch

I really like the packaging, the polka dot print is so cute and it comes with a mirror which is always handy! The actual product itself is a gorgeous peachy/coral shade, if you've read My Top 5 MAC Lipstick post you'll know peachy/coral shades are my favourite lipstick shades, and blushes are no different! It has very fine gold shimmer which I don't find is that noticeable and It's very pigmented, I just dot a couple of dots onto my cheeks and use my Real Techniques stippling brush (also a new purchase) to blend, I love this brush for cream blush, they work great together! The creamy texture of the blush itself is really blendable so its easy to work with. It applies as a cream blush and drys to a more powdery finish I would have preferred it to give a more cream blush dewy finish, but I still like it none the less and find it gives a really natural finish.

I'm defiantly impressed with my first Topshop cream blush, and will be checking out more shades, you can get them for £6 which I think is a really good price.

Have you tried Topshop blushes? What do you think of them?
