Collective Haul | Primark, Boots, Coolway, eBay...

Hello everyone!

Over the past few weeks I've been making a few little purchases here and there and suddenly everything just mounted up and I decided to write a haul post before I forgot about them. Some of these things I bought before my Cheshire Oaks haul but I didn't include them because they weren't from Cheshire Oaks!

So in no particular order... let's get cracking!

The first thing I picked up, a few weeks back now is these Coolway Boots. I love boots, they are the only item of foot ware that don't rub my feet and I saw these and thought they were pretty unique! I can't find this exact pair online but you can see similar ones on THIS WEBSITE.

The RRP prices on these boots are around £110 ... I bought mine from TKMaxx for £35.00! 

The next thing I bought was a scarf. This is from Sainsburys and it was £8.00.

It's made of very thin material but there's lots of it so it'll keep you warm but I just thought it'd be nice for them brisk spring days! I also love the little Zebras on it! They had lots of different designs, I could have bought them all. 

Moving on now to a few makeup items.

I finally caved and bought the Revlon Colour Stay foundation. I've worn it a few times and so far I really like it. My skin's been a nightmare lately though so I'm looking forward to using it when everything's back to normal, I think it'll look lovely. It's a bit pricy at nearly £13.00 from the high street, but I've seen it on THIS WEBSITE called All Beauty for £8.00 which is probably where I will buy it from in the future. 

I bought two of the Revlon Matte Lip Balms in Unapologetic and Sultry and to go with them I also picked up the Rimmel Lip Liner in Eastend Snob.

I needed to buy a new Rimmel Stay Matte as mine was dangerously close to the end and unfortunately my Collection Lasting Perfecting Powder it's quite as good at the job.

I have bought 3 nail polishes of late, The first one is China Glaze's Sun of a Peach. I bought this for £4.98 from Nail Polish Direct. I have it on my nails right now and it's so bright. It's going to be beautiful in summer. The only thing is that the brush on it is awful, it's really thin which is a bit annoying but I can live with it. 

I picked up two Barry M nail polishes in Passion Fruit and Princess. I haven't used either yet but I'm excited to see how bright Passion Fruit is! 

I usually use dry shampoo for some volume in my hair but recently I've been fed up with the powder it leaves behind. So I picked up the Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray. I've tried it a few times and it does it's job really well, I like it a lot! It is a little pricey though...

As I mentioned previously my skin's been very naughty lately. I have a feeling it's stress related, I have a lot of university work at the moment and a few weeks ago I had to do a presentation which I was ridiculously nervous for, maybe it's the outcome of that. 

Anyway, I picked up the Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 wash and mask which helps get rid of your blemishes. I never buy anything like this because my skin doesn't really break out so I just bought what was on offer and looked good. I've been using it twice a day for the past 5 days and it's working a treat. I'll write a review soon.

Moving on to Primark now, I finally bought a CB Tan. I got a bit ahead of myself last week when we had some sunny spells and kind of decided my skin needed to be summer ready. Turns out, it doesn't, we're back to the usual doom and gloom. But I bought this after reading some positive reviews and so far I think it's quite nice. The colour of it is very natural but it's difficult to get even application, especially around your hands and this stuff lasts for days. I'll write a more in depth review on that.

I bought 3 tops, also from Primark, which were a steal at only £3 each in the sale! I bought a light grey, dark grey and a burgundy colour one which I forgot to photograph because I was wearing it when I took these... If you're following my Instagram though (TheMysteriousNeonLights) you can see it on there. 

They aren't exactly warm, you have to wear a vest top underneath but they certainly look nice and they're long enough at the back to wear with leggings which is a bonus :)

I was thoroughly enjoying perusing the Homeware section of Primark, I could have spent quite a lot of money on decorations and lights and bedding. But I reigned myself in and settled on these silver sparkly butterfly lights! I bought them especially for my blog so you'll be seeing them in the background of my pictures within the next few posts. These were a bargain at only £3.00.

Also from the Home section I bought this double duvet cover which I'm in love with. I think bedding is so expensive and I'm just not prepared to pay £40 on bedding. This was only £12! It's really nice and comfy too and they had lots of different designs so I can see myself going back for more....

Lastly from Primark, remember that sunny spell I was talking about? Yep, that's why I bought these! I love them, for £1 including a little case for them, can you beat it? I thought that they were so cheap because they don't actually protect your eyes but they have stickers on them saying '100% UV protection' so, I just love them. I bought them in blue and black and they both have mirrored lenses and I can't wait to wear them! Funnily enough Tom claimed the blue pair when he saw them so I'll probably have to buy myself another pair when I next go in. 

Last of all, I bought a necklace extender from a seller on eBay. You might think this is a little boring but I'm including it just incase, like me, you didn't know these existed. I have lots of necklaces which I love but they don't hang down as far as I'd like. So this chain extender basically attaches to the clasp at the back and makes your necklace a few inches longer. 

I bought a 3 inch chain and that was £2.15 with free P&P.
If you'd like to use the seller you can see them HERE.

So they are the bits and pieces I've picked up over the last few weeks!
My favourites are the Revlon Matte Lip Balms, they're so pretty, I can feel a collection coming on :D

What's your favourite recent purchase?

See you next time!

It's strange how fast you can write when you're just rambling on. I took 5/6 hours two write 1,200 words for my Shakespeare essay today. Could have wrote that in half an hour on the blog hah!

I'm on the verge of buying the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation... Anyone have any good/bad thoughts on that foundation? 

I recently customised my 'Popular Posts' Widget so the pictures are the same width as the sidebar. Would anyone like a tutorial on how to do that? I struggled to find a clear 'how to'!

Posts may seem a little scattered these days, I'm trying my best to post something regularly but March is a busy month this year, uni wise! So. Many. Essays. Bear with me guys :D 

Last but not least, a massive Hello to all my new Bloglovin' followers!  I've gained about 20 followers in the last few days which I'm over the moon about!!
