A Little Random Haul

A Little Random Haul
It feels like forever ago the last time I sat at my desk with a cuppa and typed out a blog post. I have been so caught up with my final project for uni that I've almost neglected my lovely little hobby of blogging, tut I know. I have given myself some time out to just get a couple of blog posts that I have been meaning to do. Today's post is simply a little random haul of bits and bobs I have collected over the last month or two.

I've been a little naughty recently because when I first got my student loan there was nothing on the shelves that I desperately needed in my life so I resorted to impulse spending. But come on everyone has to spend at least some of their student loan on something good, right? I have been eyeing up Sally Hughes Pretty Honest book for months now and I finally caved and purchased it. So far I am really enjoying it and picking up so many great tips that I didn't know - which is always brilliant. Definitely a book to have on your shelving unit or desk.

Postcards have been a big hit recently on the world of Instagram numerous people are buying them for inspirational purposes or a bit of room deco to brighten up desk areas. I spotted these lovely postcards in Paperchase a few weeks ago and they are now currently jotted all around my room. I love them they are so simple and some of them do have a bit of inspiration too which is always helpful.

Pauls Boutique I'll be honest never really appealed to me, I remember girls at school were obsessed with their handbags, personally I never liked them. However near the Zoella and other bloggers beauty range they now stock these Pauls Boutique makeup brushes which got me curious. I picked up the powder brush purely because my current powder brush is atrociously thick and dirty. I also picked up this pretty, chic shower gel that really caught my eye. I picked up the coconut macaroon flavour because coconut is my favourite scent. It smells delicious!  

Most people shop at Tesco for food right? Well not me apparently. I initially went in for some hair dye and some food for mine and my boyfriend's tea then somehow left with a candle and a new phone case. I have been looking for a new phone case for quite some time now so this wasn't a total impulse buy. It is so hard to come across a pretty case for the Samsung Galaxy S4 so when I saw this dogtooth black and white printed case I didn't think twice it was in my basket before I knew it. 

Never had Tesco down as the candle type but I was drawn into these candle designs straight away. Pink lemonade and peach is a spring/summery scent that smells incredible I absolutely love it. Definitely check of Tesco's candles!

Bit of a random mish mash haul again as no clothing seems to be appealing to me at the moment. We are at that inbetween winter/spring time of the year where I can never find anything. Hopefully my next haul in the future will include clothing!

What have you been buying recently??

    1. Girl you need them if you can get them they are amazing! I must admit burning them you don't get the same scent as to what they smell like not burnt but the packaging is stunning to keep for other candles

  15. I love Paperchase postcards, I bought some the other week and they look so nice on my wall! Totally get you with Tesco, I probably spend more time in the home and beauty aisles than I do in the food aisles haha
