Mini Haul #3

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a mini haul for you all. It's been a while since I've done a bit of shopping as I never have any money. However recently, I caved and did a bit of spending but oh well! We all deserve a bit of retail therapy every now and again. In this haul I have items from Missguided, Primark and Superdrug. So enough babbling, and on with the post!

Last week I noticed that Missguided had started something called their "Sweet Deals" range. Where basically they stock a load of good staple wardrobe pieces in a range of colours and also at super affordable prices! I couldn't help myself but start adding things to my basket! My boyfriend kindly bought me two things from this range as a little present to cheer me up and I also bought myself an item from this range. I also had a look through the sale on Missguided and got an accessory.

I bought myself the Mirabela Value Bardot Skater Dress In Grey. This only cost me £6.99 and I just know I'm going to get so much wear out of it. I have a similar version of this dress which I got from Topshop last year, that dress cost me £30 and is more of a t-shirt style at the top, with a high neckline and short sleeves, however I much prefer this one and it was so much cheaper! As this is a Bardot dress it sits off the shoulder, which means it's a dress that allows you to be subtly sexy. The skater shape means that this dress cinches you in at just the right place and emphasises your waist in a flattering way. This dress can easily go from day to night with the simple use of makeup and accessories. I really love this dress and think it's a great piece to invest in. So I highly recommend it!

Next thing that I bought myself was this adorable set of collar tips. I've been eyeing them up for so long when they were fully priced and I was overjoyed when I noticed them in the sale. These are called the Klue Bird Collar Tips and they feature beautiful engraved bird detailing with a lovely gold chain linking them together. I absolutely adore these and cannot wait to put them on a shirt. If you're interested in getting these you better act fast as they are in the sale for £2.99!

Back to the sweet deals range from Missguided now. My boyfriend ordered me this beautiful, white Almina Value Halterneck Bodysuit which retails for £7.49. I can't wait to wear this on a night out, or even out and about in the sun with a pair of high waisted denim shorts. This halter neck bodysuit had a really plunging back which is extremely sexy. I love items of clothing that show off this area of skin as it's sexy but in an elegant sort of way. This is slightly sheer so I would recommend you wear this with a good white backless bra. I'm yet to wear it out as I don't have the right bra for it but when I do sort myself out, I will be wearing this a lot!

The final thing from Missguided, and the sweet deals range is this wine coloured midi skirt. Sorry for the creases, it was hanging up in my cupboard and has somehow gotten all creased. This is called the Madeline Value Double Layer Midi Skirt and is available in a range of colours. This retails for £5.99 which I think is great value for a midi skirt! I think this would look amazing with that halter neck bodysuit I got and even with cute little crop tops. I only have one other midi skirt and that's in a grey colour so I decided to be brave and pick something more colourful and I'm so glad I went for this beautiful wine / burgundy colour. It's so elegant and I cannot wait to wear it! 
The next place I got stuff from was Superdrug. Now the first thing I picked up isn't really anything too interesting but it's the new Impulse body spray in Violet and Raspberry. I'm yet to try this as I only picked it up today, however I can't wait to use it and hopefully it smells amazing!

Another boring item, but this is the Nivea Stress Protect Anti-perspirant. I've never used this before but hopefully I like it. I'm yet to find a deodorant that I really like so I thought I'd give this a go and see what it's like.

Once again, another boring deodorant.. I picked this up also in my quest to try and find a deodorant that I do genuinely love. I don't believe I've tried this one before so with any luck it's a good one!

Finally something interesting! This is MUA's answer to the latest chubby stick craze. This is called the MUA Power Pout and is available in 6 different shades, each cost £3. I picked up the orange shade called Justify as I have a real thing for orange lip colours right now. I'm wearing this already and I can just tell that it's going to be one of my new favourites. The colour glides on easily and at first goes on quite subtle but can be built up into a really intense peachy colour. It has a nice glossy finish to it which means it's quite moisturising on the lips and therefore is very comfortable to wear. There's a great selection of colours and at such a good price it's hard not to resist buying them all!

This is Collection's "Work The Colour" Eyeshadow Pencil. This is a creamy eyeshadow in the form of a pencil, meaning it should glide on very easily and should be quite blendable. I'm yet to use this product so I can't really say too much about it. I picked this up in shade, Vanilla Sky, there are 6 shades in total and all are priced at a reasonable £3.19.

Next thing I picked up was MUA's intense colour eyeliner in Jet Black. I needed a decent black eyeliner for my waterline as the No.7 one that I have right now is not very long lasting. I picked this one up as it looked like a really intense black colour and it was only a £1! It also has a sharpener built into the lid which I think is just a fantastic idea as I'm always loosing the sharpeners for my eyeliners.

Next I went to Primark on the look out for props for an up coming shoot I'm doing and I just had to pick up these sunglasses. They're so amazing I just couldn't leave them! As you can see from the photo they're circular framed but with 2 heart cut outs. These are my first pair of tortoise shell glasses and I'm not too sure if these will suit my face at all but like I said, I just couldn't leave them behind. These retail for £3.

The next and final thing I picked up was a 3 pack of hair scruchies. Yes that's right, hair scrunchies. I picked these up for my next photoshoot. I'm not too sure If I myself will be wearing them but for lazy days where I just want to get all my hair off my face I guess they'll come in handy!

So that's it for my haul everyone. I know some items weren't too exciting but I thought I'd share them with all of you anyway.

I hope you're all well!
