HUGE Summer Haul!!

Summer means one thing for my family: a hugeeeee shopping trip, and last Saturday we went to Leeds for the day, and I spent a lot of money!! As well as this, I've been spending in my local shopping centre, and picking up some items from stores like Primark and Superdrug, so I'm including these as well!!


I was in need of some swimwear for my upcoming holiday and to be 100%, I found it a real struggle as I am a size 6, and most swimsuits/bikinis were not in my size, whether it was New Look, Primark, H&M, there was hardly any, but I managed to find one in Primark!! I bought the Tropical Print Bikini which totaled to £11. I really like this as it has a mesh paneling at the top of the top and bottoms, which really works with the colours on the bikini. I also bought the Mid Leg Rise Swimsuit from Hollister, which was in the sale and reduced from £29 to £12. It has the American flag on which I adore, and I really like the low back on this.

As well as the bikini, I also bought a few more clothing items from Primark. I had my eye on a skirt for a while, so I bought it and it is the Black Mini Skirt. It was £8 which I think is so affordable and mine is in a size 8, and it fits perfectly!! I have a few t-shirts that need bralettes underneath so I picked up 2 Non-Pad Bralettes, one in black and one in white. I love these, and they go so well under most t-shirts! Whilst making my way around the store, I found myself in the shoe section and I don't normally buy shoes, but a pair stood out to me, and they are the Silver Slip Ons. They were £5 which I think is a bargain, and I love them, they are very comfy! The last thing I got from my local Primark was the Baby Blue Crop Raw Edge Sweater. I loveeeee this jumper, I think it's so soft, and is probably not suited to this time of year but I still wear it!! The colour is absolutely gorgeous, it's a cute baby blue and if you know me well, I adore blue!! It was £5 which I think was an absolute bargain!!

I also got a couple of other bits. In Topshop, there was an Ivy Park Sports Bra in the sale for £10 and I couldn't resist because I love the Ivy Park range, as well as the sports bras because I already have one in black. The final clothing item I got was a Jack Wills T-Shirt, which my mum kindly gifted to me and I am very grateful as I love this top so so much! It was £27 I think, which is expensive but so worth it!


These products were needs as I was either running out or didn't like the one I owned. However I have heard good things about these products if I hadn't already tried them!

I've seen this primer being used on YouTube, and this is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer. I love the foundation, so I thought, why not get the primer?? I can't say much about it as I've hardly used it, but I'm sure they'll be a review soon! I also bought the corresponding foundation, the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation and I love this foundation as it is very full coverage which is what I need because I suffer from really bad redness, so I like a foundation that covers me up well. I have used this foundation before so I know it is good, and so far it's holding up well. I would recommend if you suffer from bad acne, or redness like me! I have always used the Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder, I don't know why, but I thought it was about time to try the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. So far I've been loving this powder, as a matter of fact, I like all of these products!!

I also got some products that weren't needs, i just wanted them, and plus, they were all reduced!! Kiko had a sale on, and I couldn't resist!! I want to experiment more with my makeup so I picked up the shades 253, 263 and 273, which is a very bright green, blue and purple!! If I create a nice look, I may write a post about it, so keep your eyes peeled!! I think the colours are so pretty, and I can't wait to use them!! Plus, they were only £1 each...WHAT A BARGAIN.

 I also picked up a lipstick in the shade 05, and I got it because it was a shade that I wouldn't normally buy but it is so so pretty!! The last makeup product I picked up was the Models Own E2 Blending Brush, as I don't own a blending brush, and it was reduced to £3.50. I'm very excited to use this!! I also got some freebie brushes from Lush which are really good and you can never turn down a freebie, right???


A few other beauty bits I picked up included the Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly, which was £3.95. I have been after this for a while now and I'm very happy to finally have my hands on this! It smells amazing and I can't wait to use it. Another product I had my eyes on and picked up in Urban Outfitters was the Mario Badescu Facial Spray. I have used this pretty much every day I've got it and I honestly love it!! I would seriously recommend this as it's really good and so affordable!! The final beauty item I picked up was the Body Fantasies Spray in Twilight Mist. This is one of my favourite sprays ever and I picked another one of these because 1. I'm running out and 2. It was half price!! I think Body Fantasies Sprays are some of the best, and would recommend if you don't own one! I also got a Black & White Stripe Makeup Bag from Primark to fit all my makeup in when I go away!! And this was a bargain at £4, so you can't go far wrong!

Finally a couple of random products which I picked up. The first was a Power Bank, that I got from Primark, and I just picked this up as I think I will need one when I go on holiday! The final thing I got was the 13 Reasons Why Book. I have watched the series and I loved it, so I wanted to see what the book was like in comparison. I'm excited to read this on holiday!!

So I'm sorry this post is so long, but I didn't want to miss anything out of my haul!! This is my last post until the 27th (I think!), I'll try and keep you updated on my social medias!! Hope you have an amzinf 2 weeks while I'm gone!! love
