Wish List #1 | Featuring Michael Kors, Mulberry & UGG

Hello My Lovelies :)

Hope your all ok and having a great weekend :) Today is my only day off this week so i was determined to have a good ol' rest and lounge around. It's also been quite an emotional day as two of my cousins have left for University today. I should be heading up there next week for FRESHERS haha 

I have quite a busy week ahead, committee meetings for Cheerleading, Bake Sales, Freshers Fayre & my Year 2 Business Management registration on friday eeeep so exciting haha :D

Back to the post, my Wish List is going to be a new series i want to start writing up every now again to show you some of the items i've been lusting over and want to get my hands on. 

1) Michael Kors - Bella - Rose Golden Glitz Watch -

I have been lusting over a Michael Kors watch for the longest time now, so i was looking through the Official Michael Kors website and i've set my heart on this particular one. The only down side is they don't currently ship to the UK and all the stores in the UK don't hold this particular design. They do however have a number i can call up and discuss International shipping with so i will be doing that in a little while as i have to wait for the whole time difference situation :D

2) Mulberry - Bayswater - 

I am a huge designer bag lover and have an array of different ones, however, i have my eye on this particular design next :D I currently own the 'Oversized Alexa' & 'Hobo Alexa' both in the Buffalo shade but i think i need a Bayswater in my life. I'm torn between getting another Buffalo shade or perhaps a Cream shade just to mix it up a little bit. It's also such a classic a staple design which i'd love to have in my collection :)

3) UGG - Classic Small Chestnut - 

If you know me than you will definitely know i am UGG obsessed haha I currently have 10 pairs in my collection including the Limited Edition 'Mandah' Jimmy Choo Ugg Boots :) Chestnut is one of my favorite shades from UGG and i have both the Classic Talls & Classic Mini's in this shade already, so i thought it was fitting i complete the collection by purchasing the in-between size of Small too :D really cheesy i know, but it's another way to make an excuse to purchase another pair haha I am definitely looking forward to it getting slightly colder now so i can whip put the UGG collection :P

I love hearing from my lovely followers :) so please let me know what you think and if you have any advice about what colours i should go for or if you know anywhere in the UK that sells the particular Michael Kors watch i'd really appreciate it :)

If you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below :D

My Lovely 'Jewel By India R' Package

Hello My Lovelies,

Yesterday i received a lovely surprise package from the beautiful India at the Jewel Beauty Blog. We met over a year ago through blogging and we have become soooo close, she's just like a sister to me :D We have so much in common and are literally at the same stages in our life. We're both at University, studying practically the same course, starting our own businesses and are bloggers :3 

If you havent checked out Indias blog or boutique i will link everything at the end of this post for you all :D 

This is what arrived in the lovely packages India sent :)

She sent two of her amazing and luxurious lip balms, 'Honey Bea' which is named after Indias gorgeous niece Honey Beatrice, how cute is that?! :D I purchased one when her website just launched and it's nearly finished so i was so happy when i saw there was another one in the package haha Also, her new 'Majestic Mango' lip balm, which smells good enough to eat, is hitting the website really soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that. 

My Mum is now hooked on these lip balms too, she's been trying to steal them from me since i received them yesterday haha 

India's lip balms are truly amazing, they smell incredible and are very nourishing, just what you need now the cold winter months are just around the corner. I can honestly say they are better than most ones you can pick up in Boots or at you local supermarket, and are great value for money as they last you ages :)

She also sent me some samples of the new Urban Decay Naked foundation. I was so exited when she sent these because i've literally been dying to try this foundation and it's been on my little wish list for a while now :D so will keep you all posted about that :P

Collective Haul: Real Techniques, MAC & River Island

Hello My Lovelies,

This has been a post i've been dying to write up for you guys. I had to wait for a few of them to arrive in the post and i picked up one last week when i popped into town.

As you all know i recently purchased a whole load of Real Techniques brushes on the website and in store as they were on a special buy 1 get 1 half price deal. How could i say no to that?! haha Well, as you do, i was browsing the website again and stumbled across 3 new brushes which i assume were just added to the website because they weren't there last week. These are the remaining 3 brushes that i needed to complete my Real Techniques brush collection. How sad am i?! haha I had to quickly purchase them before i changed my mind. 

I will be doing reviews on them individually in the near future for you all, so keep an eye out for them if you'll like to hear my opinions & personal experiences with them :)

Real Techniques - Lash & Brow Groomer
Real Techniques - Setting Brush
Real Techniques - Fine Liner Brush 

MAC Vegas Volt

This was more of an impulse buy :) I went online to order the lipstick for my Giveaway winner and she chose 'Vegas Volt', i don't know how i missed such a lovely shade but i couldn't resist purchasing a cheeky one for me too haha

 This was also another impulse buy. I had to quickly pop into town last week and as you do, i couldn't resist a browse around some of my fave shops. I instantly saw this hanging up as soon as i walked through the doors of River Island :) I thought i was quite brave choosing such a bright colour as i'm usually into my neutrals and what not. I'm really coming out of my shell lately, think blogging has really helped me express myself more :) This top came in White, i believe a Navy shade and then this beautiful bright coral shade, which i am in love with! I've already worn it and have had tones of compliments on it. 
I can't seem to find it on the website, but as soon as i do i'll post a link :)

Hope you enjoyed my collective haul post :) if you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below :) I love hearing from my lovely followers!

Boots Haul - Part 2 - Featuring Chanel & Real Techniques

Hello My Lovelies,

Sorry for the lack of posting, i've had a rough few days. We had some very sad news last week and i havent felt up to blogging or anything. I've been getting back into things slowly, I attended the #bbloggers chat last night & it cheered me up a little bit so i thought i would upload the 2nd half of my Boots Haul for you all as it arrived Saturday morning :)

Real Techniques - Foundation Brush 
Real Techniques - Your Base Perfected Core Collection
Chanel - Soleil Tan De Chanel

This part of my Boots Haul are the items i picked up online when i discovered that the Real Techniques brushes were on offer for Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price. I couldn't resist going online and spending a few pennies, whoopsie haha. I initially wanted both Core sets but the Eye set was sold out online, which is why i picked it up in store in Part 1 of this Haul. 

I'm actually obsessed with these rushes and i think i have near enough the entire collection now. Well, every single one which is available on the Boots website haha I will be doing a review on them individually for you in the future. 

The Chanel - Soleil Tan De Chanel was more of an impulse by at the time. I've had my eye on it for the longest time ever and decided to take the plunge and just purchase it. I always watch tutorials on Youtube and the ones which include this products are always so beautiful and i know it's such a great products as the reviews are amazing. I can't wait to start using it as i love having a healthy glow all year round :D can;t wait to introduce it into my daily makeup routine :D i will also be doing a review on this in the near future for you all :D

I really want to get my hands on some Sigma brush sets, especially some of the synthetic ones to use with the Soleil Tan De Chanel. If you know of any places who stock authentic brushes in the UK please let me know below :D

If you've used or recently purchased any of these products let me know, i'd love to hear your opinion on them :)

If you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below :)

Boots Haul - Part 1 - Featuring Real Techniques, Essie, Revlon & Lady Gaga

 Hello My Lovelies,

I seriously think someone has to hide my purse because i have literally done so much spending within the last 4 days. I've made a MAC order, Boots online order, purchased Some River Island goodies and went into Boots again today to pick up some more lovely bits. So, i think doing a huge collective haul would be the longest post ever so i have decided to divided everything up. 

Todays post consists of the first half of my Boots haul, all the bits i picked up today.

The Real Technique Brushes are currently on Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price on the Boots website so i totally went a bit OTT last night. However, one of the sets i wanted was the 'Your Eyes Enhanced' starter kit but it was sold out online :( so i saw this as an opportunity to go in store :P

Real Techniques - Your Eyes Enhanced Starter Kit
Essie - Turquoise & Caicos
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Rendezvous 
Lady Gaga - FAME Perfume

I initially went in hunting down the Real Techniques brush set, everything else were more impulse purchases but i've had my eye on these particular products for a while now and i was in a 'Let Go Crazy' shopaholic mood haha 

I had to purchase another Revlon Jut Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, i absolutely love 'Cherish' so i was on the hunt for a new shade to add to my collection. This is such a stunning colour and i can't wait to use it properly :)

The only thing is i picked up the wrong Essie nail polish :( don't get me wrong it's still an absolutely beautiful shade but i wanted 'Mint Candy Apple' someone must have put this one in the wrong section. I should have checked haha but yet again this gives me another excuse to go out shopping ;) haha 

I will be doing a review on these products individual very soon :) so keep an eye out for them. Can't wait to review the Lady Gaga perfume :)

Have you tried any of these products? Or is their anything your absolutely loving right now that you'd recommend?

Hope you liked this short but sweet haul :D please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below :D i love hearing from my lovely followers <3 p="p">
