London Birthday Haul

For those of you who haven't read my 21st birthday in London post here won't know that I recently turned 21 and my boyfriend kindly took me to London which was exciting! I mostly received money for my 21st just so I could get whatever I wanted down in London. I think I did good with my money considering I was surrounded by all of these amazing stores down Oxford Street. I didn't spend much of it either purely because there was nothing that I really wanted but, I did pick up a few bits and pieces that did catch my eye so I decided to create a London birthday haul! 

The first thing I purchased was an absolute bargain, this pastel green little bag was from Accessorize at a small price of £10! (including discount). I was so stunned as to how cheap this bag was especially from Accessorize these are usually in the £20 area. I love pastel colours in winter or summer so this will definitely be getting used - could not leave this bag on the shelves! 
When visiting Selfridges I think it took me around 5 minutes until I had purchased the Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow quad in Dolce Vita. I have wanted this product for ages and had every intention on purchasing this so I was thrilled they had it in stock! I had also purchased the famous Mac lipstick in Rebel purely because I fancied a purple lipstick fitting with the time of year! Loving both products so far so expect reviews soon!

Another item I have wanted for ages was this elephant purse from Urban Outfitters, I was really happy that they had it in stock. I always seem to buy my purses from Urban Outfitters for some reason, I just love there quality and designs.

It is getting a lot colder now so wearing layers or thicker clothing is essential. I love these turtle neck clothing that is in fashion now so when I saw this grey knitted top from River island I just had to get it. Which is weird because I never ever find anything in River Island that appeals to me so this was a new one for me! Another new thing for me is buying products from the Body Shop, I have always wanted to try there skincare range out and since my boyfriend could get 35% discount I thought why not try something. So I picked up a seaweed facial wash for oily/combination skin which is great so far.

On our way back to the train station we went into the Harry Potter store and I was instantly drawn towards this mug because it comes with a little spoon too! How handy is that for hot chocolates?! My boyfriend actually kindly bought me this but I thought to include it in my haul anyways. 

Overall I am really happy with all of the bits I purchased from London, I'll admit I probably could of went crazy in Selfridges or Harvey Nichols on makeup/skincare but I am glad I held back a bit! So happy I spent my 21st in London and was able to treat myself to some goodies!

  2. I'm so nosey, I loved reading this. I love love loveeee that purse from urban outfitters, I don't tend to venture in there much but I don't know why not because I actually really like a lot of their stuff when I see people with it. I'm very jealous of your Charlotte Tillbury palette! I think I'd be reluctant to use it in case I messed it up, it's that pretty to just look at! Sounds like you had a successful shop!! Have also been meaning to pick up a turtle neck so will have to go to River Island and check out yours!!

    1. I know I rarely do either but I do buy my purses from either there or Accessorize they do them with other patterns too. Aw I have been doing exactly that I've only used it once so far because I am scared to mess up it's prettiness! The top is lovely and warm I want more of them! xx
