Haul #1 – Collective Haul: Superdrug | Matalan | Deichmann

Aloha Ladieees

How’s everyone Saturday afternoon going? Well that doesn’t matter because if you’re reading this atm, you’re probably homealone with all the boredom and revision  procrastination in the world to spare. How’s everyone’s Tuesday evening going? I know mine is going well because I have plenty of photo editing to keep me occupied. Occupied from blogging. 

Just kidding guys Let’s just ignore the fact that I said this will be up last Tuesday. One excuse: college.

And since, I’ve been building up the excitement  empty promises for this post for quite a while now. I thought I should just crack on with it.

First item(s)!

haul1

So this purchase was made around two weeks ago. There was a 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug and so I picked up these three items which I’ve been wanting to try for quite a while now.

Starting from the left is the: Sleek MakeUP Face Form, in LIGHT. It’s a contour kit that’s being raved about quite a lot because of it’s superb pigmentation and colour pay off. Urban Decay Naked Flushed dupe alert! I would like to go on more about this product, but I guess I should save that for a review 😉

And in the middle, it’s the:  L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza, in Pure Black. It’s a gel/cream liner (whatever you wanna call it) that I thought I would try since my liquid eyeliner was running out and I thought I should switch to something new.

And the last product- another one from L’Oreal – is the : Nude Magique CC Cream (Anti-Dullness). Again, something I’ve been eyeing for a while but never really got my head to it. This would also be my first experience of BB/CC creams.

Now onto my Matalan purchases!

haul2

As you know guys, most of my wardrobe consists of grey. And if it isn’t grey, it would be Matalan. It’s honestly very underrated amongst other fashion outlets. Mainly because it’s just not marketed well. But un-coincidentally, whenever someone complements something that I would wear, it would be from Matalan. And this shirt literally grabbed my eye from a 10 meter distance. I’ve been looking for a wine-coloured shirt for quite a while now; my wardrobe lacks purple. And the floral print on this was just like whoaa. I brought this in a size 8.

So Remember guys how I said I’ve been on a mustard hype very recently. Well I just gave no second thoughts to this. I can see it going well with 20 other grey items I have in mind. And plus the fabric is what it says on the tin. Pure cotton. It was seriously the softest t-shirt I’ve ever purchased. And also I love the wide-cut neck; makes it more suitable for going out. This was in a size 12, because you know t-shirts are quite body-hugging and I want to wear this out.

If you’ve been keeping up with the trends, you know that box tops are like everywhere now. First off all, I don’t own this photo (I actually did an assignment on copyright a few days ago, so spare me the lecture). But anyhow, I really liked the snake/crocodile/whateveranimalthisis print and also I do own quite a bit of navy and I wanted to welcome this into the family.

And last, but most definitely not least, from the Matalan purchases:

haul4

Gaaaah. This is hands down, the prettiest kimono I’ve seen across the many kimonos which I’ve browsed the last months. Even the Japanese will be all hats-off for this. Now looking at it, I realize you won’t really know what I am talking about without a backside shot. But you know, use your imagination.

Now onto the Deichmann buys!

haul7haul6

Okay guys, I literally have like no winter-friendly shoes. I always tend to do my shopping in the summer which is why my wardrobe is like Miami vice. So it’s only natural that I have stacks of sandals; flat and wedged. As well as plenty of dolly shoes. But they do no good in this country, let me tell you.

Anyways, this is why I opted for two shoe purchases from Deichmann. A pair of hi-tops and lace-up boots. Technically, they’re called ankle-boots, but I refuse to accept such description. They look nothing like ankle boots. More on the side of combat. But overall, it’s the colour that grabbed my attention. And as for the hi-tops, the inside pattern did it all.

Is it done now? This post…it was just not going to end. I won’t assume you’re bored because that defeats the purpose of me posting in the first place. Let’s just say it was exhaustion and call it a day.

So That’s it now ladies. I have a feeling I won’t be posting for a while (Let’s just hope I am wrong). But until next time,

Take care ❤

OOTD: MCM Comic Con + Mini Haul

Aloha guys!

I am back with a new post and hopefully you will enjoy it!
So last May, there was a Comi Con event held in Excel, London which I  was really excited about because I love Cosplay and dress up and anything  anime. I took the tube at 8 to, with my friend Sara and we arrived there at 9:30am.

So here’s the outfit! I know…I know I didn’t dress up. But that’s because its hard finding modest Cosplay. So I just decided to go with an “it’s nearly Summer” kind of outfit. Items that I don’t mention are either purchased from abroad or I genuinely don’t remember…sorry.

Blouse | Matalan
Bag | Fiorelli (stolen of Sara)
Shoes | Deichman

Here’s a picture of some of the attenders #Awesomeness Overload
I love how the Assassin’s Creed dressers and Pirates blend in and then there’s that one guy in Spiderman, hanging on for dear life LOL.

Afterwards, we decided to go Westfield, Stratford fo some shoppinnn.
I seriously love the Forever 21 there because of how spacious it is compared to the Oxford Street one. The New Look and H&M are flagship as well. I didn’t want to go crazy though – the Spring/Summer collection was b e a u t i f u l – but yo I was going on holiday 2 months after and I wanted to save money.
I was thinking for sometime on building a ring collection (because I literally have no rings) so the first item I bought is a massive Shield  ring from New Look. In F21, I ended up going for a gold hand chain because why ever not? I also fell in love with this cream, bendable, cuff bracelet which is outlined in gold metallic that has a subtle reflection (I wear it EVERYWHERE now).

And to perfectly end the day, we grabbed some froyo’s from Yo Moo. And yep, mine is the pot that’s overflowing hehe.
But it was some serious frozen yoghurt o.O

Anyyyyway…..I guess that’s an  informal farewell from me!

Until next time. Take care 🙂
