A little MUA haul

So I went shopping… again.

I have had my eye on the MUA eye palletes for quite some time but I never believed that they’d be very good because of the very low price of £4. However, the low pricing just adds to how amazing this product is – other than the flimsy packaging, this product is perfect. I also picked up a couple of the MUA Nail Polishes after seeing so many bloggers writing about them. I was originally attracted to the bottles as they are complete copy of the Essie ones just a little smaller – but for £1 you can’t complain. The colours I bought were Bold Blue and Fever Red (above), I did intend to buy a few colours but the Superdrug in the Trafford Centre seemed to have ran out of most of the colours so I am planning to pop to another store and get some more colours ready for the summer.

DSC_0163As you can see from the above photograph the pallete consists of mainly shimmery neutral shades with only three Matte shades but all of them are so pretty  and wearable. I will definitely be picking up some different coloured palletes next time and hopefully i’ll learn a few more techniques so I can use them all the time.

Little Purchases

Feels like I haven’t posted on here for quite a while, 10 days ago (to be precise) I posted and said that I was aiming to do at least two posts per week and I admit I haven’t been doing great. Apologies. Basically, I had an idea for my post a while back but then I got a stupid cold with a constant bad throat and I just wasn’t in the mood to be editing and posting but now that i’m at the end of it I will be posting on here a lot more regularly as I have a few ideas for this month. Yay!

Although I was full of a cold, I just could not resist a little shop when it became an option so me and my family took a trip to the Trafford Centre last weekend and a few other little places here and there so I thought I’d share with you a couple of things that I bought.

ImageAbove you can see my 5 favourite items that I have purchased this week.

First I’ll go straight to my most recent purchases which are the three beautiful nail polishes. I bought these colours because they were cute pastel colours and just thought they were perfect for the spring season and are my three favourite colours as you will be able to tell from my updated banner at the top of the page.

I love this Barry M shade because its just so pale and a spring colour. I also realised that I am short of purply colours in my growing collection so I knew there was a need for one. Love it.

This colour is just so pretty! Its like a pastel coral colour and I just loved it. I’ve been wanting to give the Gelly Hi Shine Nails a whirl for a while and took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer in Boots.

Now this polish is my absaloute fave. I saw this collection was coming out after reading a few other beauty blogs and then they appeared in my magazine and I fell in love. So when I saw them in boots with the whole 3 for 2 thing going on I just couldn’t resist. All of the shades were beautiful but the Apple Pie was one that I didn’t yet have in my collection – the amazing apple scent is just great too.

 I saw this product after reading about it on Behind These Closed Eyes which is a blog that I am loving at the minute as she inspires me to use so many products so when she wrote about the Coconut Oil – I pretty much went out and bought it the next day and I love it already. This it great for damaged hair like mine with ridiculous dead ends, yet is also amazing for dry skin. I use this every day and my hair already feels softer. So thank you Kirsty!

 Last but definitely not least is my AMAZING candle. I bought this on Easter Weekend on a trip to Hebden Bridge in a cute querky shop. They had so many different scents to pick from but I am a total Parma Violets addict and so I just couldn’t leave the shop without buying this. Its currently just an ‘on show’ candle because I just don’t want to use it all so soon so I shall save it a bit longer. Hahaha

Have you got any of these products? Do you have any recommendations? Leave your comments below and I’d be happy to read them
