More Purchases! (Haul)

June 18, 2014

Yep... you're reading that correctly... it's YET another post about what I've been buying. Honestly, this has to stop, I have a problem! I am going to try and make an effort to use up what I have before buying more... no official No Buy in place (as I always fail them miserably) but I am going to try and shop less. (Until the trip to London in July at least!)

This post is a super exciting one for me as it contains the first items I have been sent 'as a blogger' which is amazing. The fact that brands are happy for me to feature their products on my site and want me to work with them is such a huge compliment and very exciting.

Anything sent for consideration will have a star next to them * so that it's clear. Also if I feature anything on my Twitter or Instagram I will also use a star * on those as well.

The pictures for this won't be the best as I've done this primarily as a video which you can watch by clicking *here*.

Brija Cosmetics 

I've got my first ever lip gloss from Brija (I love it) plus the brilliant Hula dupe bronzer Hoola Hoop (clever name eh?) and glittering assemblage cream eyeshadow. Pics from my Instagram.

Red Apple Lipstick*

I'm very excited to have been sent the Red Apple Z-palette*, the Mint 2 Be Honey Badger Lip Gloss*, two eye shadows* and a lipstick sample. 

Early first impressions are great - very smooth, buttery and long lasting shadows plus a really lovely lip gloss. I will cover these in more detail very soon!

Bodhi and Birch*

I made the most of their sale by ordering YET more shower therapies (I am addicted) and then I was very kindly offered the Mint The Temple Balm* and Flora Paradiso De-stress massage & Body Oil*. My order also included free samples of the body moisturiser and Neroli Luce facial oil, lucky me! I can't wait to talk about these more in a separate post.


The greeny-blue set (inbox plus drawer) and the pen holder are both from the Martha Stewart range at Staples - buy one get on free so I paid under £15 for the whole lot! The acrylic container is from Ebay, I think it was about £11 for the drawers and the organiser on top - much cheaper than Muji... but you can tell!

If you want to see more of what I've been buying please watch my video!

Thanks for reading,

    1. I'm actually expecting a little bit more from Red Apple, I can explain all in my next post about them but I am working with them to come up with a more affordable international shipping policy! I have been emailing them about it this week and can't wait to tell all when something is decided :-) xx
