A huge collective haul

Hi everyone. I haven't published a haul post in ages, but it does't mean that I wasn't buying anything :) haha
I didn't realise how much stuff I actually bought recently. Ooops :) Most of it is from Primark, Asos, New Look, Tesco and Asda. I also got some beauty bits and lots of home decor, but I might do a separate post about that.
 I got this cute lilac belt from Asos Curve. It is reduced to £3.00 at the moment. <link>

The necklace is from New Look and it was £9.99

 The most comfortable shoes ever- Primark £6.00

 I am already planning my holiday outfits and I picked up two pairs of flip flops from Primark - £2.50 for each pair.

I am not sure if I will wear this necklace, but it was reduced to 50p :) so I picked it up.

Asos Mint Bralet £6.00 <link> It will look nice with a maxi skirt and a sheer blouse.

 I am in love with the butterfly print shorts from Primark (£4.00). They had other prints as well and I will be buying more, before going on Holiday.

 The pink and black skater dresses are from New Look (£16.99 for a 2-pack) and the middle dress is from Primark (£4.00). The skater dresses are wide on the bottom and look very flattering on me. I wish they sold them in other colours as well.

 The cardigan is a Primark bargain (£3.00). Let's face it- we don't really have a proper summer in UK, so I wear cardigans nearly every day. This one is very light and baggy and it is made of a lovely fabric. The skirt is from George at Asda (£4.00) and the leggings are from Asos. I adore the print on them and they look lovely with a simple oversized vest top. You can buy them in the asos sale (here) for £12.50, but they only have sizes 20-26 left.

 New Look vest tops (£7.99 for a 2-pack) and a tie dye midi skirt ( £6 here). 

 The oversized leather trim jumper (£7.00) is really comfortable and looks amazing with leggings. It was in the New Look sale, but I can't find a link to it. The black shirt (£9.00) is also from New Look and the black and white dress is from George at Asda (£8.00).

 The cream jumper is from F&F at Tesco and I picked it up from the sale a couple of weeks ago for £5! It is lovely and has rose gold metallic threads running through the thin knit. The black and grey dress (£10.00) and the floral one (£12.50) are  from Asos Curve, but I am not sure if they are still available. I got them 2 weeks ago, but they were on sale.

Peplum Top- New Look (£5.00), Neon pocket vest - George at Asda (£6.00), Knitted Metallic Top - George at Asda (£8.00)

Peach cardigan - F&F at Tesco (£12), Studded shoulder jumper- Primark (£8.00), Peplum Polka Dot Top-New Look (£5.00)

Khaki shirt/blouse- Primark (£12.00), Red vest top - George at Asda (£6.00), white vest - Primark (£2.50)
 closeup of the Tesco cardigans. The knit feels very soft and comfy.

The midi dress is from  New Look (£5.00), the cardi is from Tesco (£12.00) and the hoodie is from New Look (£5.00)

 I can't live without the Liz Earle  Eyebright Lotion (£10.75), so I repurchased the full size bottle. I am also addicted to the Weleda Citrus Bath Milk (£10.95) and I got a new bottle as well. 

I am late to the party with speckled nail polishes, but I finally picked up the Illamasqua one in the sale (£7.50), the Nubar one (£6.80 from feelunique) and the L'Oreal Confetti Top Coat (£4.99 from Boots). I also repurchased the Vichy Dermablend foundation, because I need something to cover scars on my neck, after my latest breakout massacre... :O It is an amazing, full coverage foundation, perfect for those with acne, pigmentation and scarring.

The last bit is a foot brush... Yeah :) It is really good though. It has a pumice stone on one side and a brush on the other side and it gently exfoliates dead skin cells! I got it for £3.99 in TKmaxx, but you can buy it in Boots as well (for £4.99).

Woooow... It was a loooong haul post, but that's it :) haha. I noticed that I got most of the items on sale, or whilst grocery shopping in Tesco and Asda :) haha. I really like F&F and George to be honest.

*Everything, except the New Look items (I had a voucher), was bought with my own money.

  8. I used to use the Vichy dermablend in Opal and thought it was the best thing ever! Now i think it looks far too heavy as a full foundation and even though this is the lightest shade, it's still a bit too dark for me :( i use it as a concealer under my BB cream and it works really well - I find it has a bit of a strange smell though :P

  9. Wow looks like you got some great bargains!
