Birthday Haul


For my birthday the other day my family decided a shopping trip was needed.. again! We went to the metro centre for the day and i picked up some great bargains and bought some things i wasn’t planning on getting, but i was too tempted! For example i ended up visiting Foxy hair extensions and buying some new extensions that i just love. I had no plan to get new ones but i may as well treat myself right?!


Because it was my birthday a visit to The body shop was a must! I picked up these 3 items in the sale. The passion fruit shower gel £3 instead of £4. The Extra Virgin Minerals Foundation in 302 £5 instead of £14 and Loose face powder in 05 £3 instead of £12.50. Whats even better because i’m a Love Your Body rewards member i got 10% off plus £5 off because it was my birthday! So i got these 3 for just £5.


I love Pandora rings! This is my fourth one now and i never take them off apart from work. This bow ring with little diamonds i picked up for just £40. Which i thought was really good value considering the detail of the diamonds.


These are definitely my favourite buys of the day! I just had to check out Zara’s sale. Although it felt like a huge jumble sale, the times on offer were amazing so many pretty things for great prices. My first item the tan sandals with glitter wedge for just £9.99 instead of £31. Then the black suede heels were such a bargain too, £25 instead of £70. I love Zara jeans so i dug for ages till i found my size and length, these mid wash jeans with cut outs were £17.99 instead of £40.


Unfortunately there’s no MAC store near me so i was excited to visit the Mac counter in House of Fraser where i picked up my first Mac lipstick in Flamingo. I love this color i wanted a peachy pink lipstick that was more matte than shiny. Its lovely on and thought it would fit perfect with my birthday dress that i wore Saturday night. this was £15.50.


I finally got my hands on the new Benefit Push up liner and its fair to say it didn’t disappoint! I got the hang of it straight away and i love how my eyeliner looks the same now usually you have one perfect and one a mess right? Not with this. I paid £18.50.

What do you think of my new buys?
