Collective Haul!

Hey everyone!

I've been absent from my blog for a few weeks now and I'm sorry about that but I was busy with exams and then I took a couple weeks to relax. But I'm back and I am hoping to write a few blog posts over the summer! I am going on holiday in a couple weeks so I will probably write about that when I get back. 

Anyways, I have built up quite a collection of recent purchases over the past 2 or 3 months, items that I've bought at different times including makeup, clothing and shoes so I thought I'd show you my new bits and bobs. (Get a snack, it'll be a long one) 

I'll start with makeup because that's obviously my favourite! 

So about 2 months ago I took a trip to boots, it was mainly to pick up the lash sensational mascara by maybelline which is my everyday mascara absolute favourite. However being the makeup addict that I am, I couldn't help but pick up a few extra bits. So along with my favourite mascara, I also bought the maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner because my queen Jaclyn Hill raves about it All. The. Time and I 100% trust her opinion so I had to try it out (I already love it) and as it was 3 for 2 on maybelline, I picked up a colour tattoo in turquoise forever (or forever turquoise, I can never remember and it's not near me right now) because I love a good colourful eyemakeup look. Now because Nyx has recently hit the UK in an explosion of makeup madness and hype, I had to try one of their products. So I decided on this vivid brights eyeliner in the shade vivid blossom. I have already incorporated it into a few looks, shown on my Instagram (@its_annas_life) 

A couple weeks later I actually purchased another nyx product. This time one of their famous soft matte lip creams, in the shade Ibiza.

These last few makeup products are from this week! So firstly I got a sample of gimme brow by benefit in the new packaging which is so cute. Then I bought three products which I have been wanting for a while. The sleek cream contour kit which I've been desperate for since sleek announced its launch! I also bought the sleek highlight palette in solstice which is beautiful and so many people have been raving about it so I had to try it! Also I'm so happy because I FINALLY bought the Mary-loumanizer highlighter by the balm after wanting it for at least a year. It's beautiful! 

Now onto clothes and other items:

So firstly I bought two new tops and a skirt. 

The tops are both stripy because I am actually loving striped tops right now. They are also both cropped! The top one is from Zara, I love a lot of the clothes in Zara, it is fast becoming one of my favourite shops! The bottom one is from new look and I bought it because it will go with a lot of things! 

The skirt is from primark and I love it because I love a good checkered print and I wear a lot of skirts. Also next year I'm going into sixth form so I will need some more clothes as I will no longer be wearing uniform. 

Now because it's summer I needed a couple of new bikinis! This first one is from Topshop and the second one is one my mum bought me from TK Maxx I believe. I love them both and I can't wait to get some use out of them on holiday! 

The last few things are two pairs of shoes and a pair of sunglasses:

I love these trainers. They are from primark and are such good quality for the affordable price! They are a really pretty green grey colour and I really like them 
This pair were from Deichman and I think the floral print is really cute. They were also such a great price! 

My last recent purchase is this pair of aviator style sunglasses from H&M, I just think they are really classy and simple. 

Right, I told you it would be a long post! Bare in mind that this was a collective haul and not all from the same trip, I think these items were collected over a total of four seperate occasions. 

I will definitely be reviewing the sleek cream contour kit and the highlight palette (probably within the same post) comment other blog post suggestions down below! 

I hope you enjoyed this long post! It was so nice to be writing again after so long. 

Until next time
