May Clothing & Beauty Haul

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted for a while, I am officially an Auntie!! My sister in law went into labour on Friday and so I now have a little nephew.  We have never had a baby in the family and so it is very exciting for me, I have enjoyed lots of cuddles and feeding him.  Whilst at home I also went shopping and bought a few items which I wanted to share :)

So, Superdrug has 3 for 2 on all make-up and you can never turn down a free product!  I have heard great things about the Maybelline Eraser Eye concealer and was so happy to see it has finally hit UK shores! The Maxfactor Colour Adapt has been a favourite of mine for a while now, it gives amazing coverage and gives a nice glow.  Lastly, I got the Maybelline BB cream as I have wanted to try out a BB cream for a while now and this was my favourite after testing out a few on the back of my hand.   I will let you know my thoughts on all of these soon!

I also popped to Matalan as they always have some lovely pieces, and this trip did not disappoint.  As soon as I saw this clutch I fell in love! It looks like something you may find in Accessorize, but for half the price! I love the colours and cannot wait to get some use out of this.

I also popped into Debenhams, where they had 20% off at Miss Selfridge.  I absolutely love this skirt however I am not sure how I would wear it so it is currently in my unsure pile.  Saying that I am sure I will keep it as it really is such a pretty skirt for the summer time. 

 Purple skirt £10.00  //  Patterned Trousers £16.00  //  Hairband £3.00

Onto Primark I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit and I am so glad I did!  Firstly, the skirt is another one in my unsure pile.  However, I think if I find the right kind of top to wear with it I may just like it!  Secondly, I bought these patterned trousers and they are so nice.  I think they will take a bit of getting used to, however I love the design and they fit perfectly.  They are also great quality, something I could imagine seeing in Zara. Lastly, I found this pretty hairband for just £3.00. I just couldn't pass it up!

Reebok EasyTone Top £10.00

Lastly, I popped into TKMaxx on the hunt for a new gym top and I found this beauty.  I completely ignored it at first as it was a medium and I am a small, however not having much choice I thought I would try it on.  It is double layered, and the top underneath is tiny whereas the top layer is long enough to cover my bum if I am feeling a bit self conscious in my leggings.  The EasyTone range is meant to help create resistance as you move and is designed to tone key muscles and improve posture - we shall see!

What shops have you been loving at the moment?

  1. Wow the clutch is stunning, you are absolutely right it would be double if not triple the price in accessorize, good find :)

  2. I bought that floral Miss Selfridge skirt to wear at a wedding next weekend :) it's gorgeous x

  3. The primark goodies look fab! What about a lose vest or tshirt tucked into the red skirt? With a long necklace for a hippy vibe! Wear with converse, sandals or boots and you are good to go! I love the maybeline bb cream, the only one that's light enough for me! xo

  4. Definitely need to pick the maybelline concealer, heard sooo much about it! The printed trousers and the headband are also so cute! Ahhh this makes me want to go shopping, even though I really, REALLY shouldn't haha.


  5. You got some lovely things, I especially like the dip-hem skirt and printed trousers from Primark.
    I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on BB creams as having tried several and being disappointed I'm not really a fan, some people do seem to really like them though.
