SUMMER HAUL

:
Summer is my favourite season for many reasons: the sun; going to the beach; lounging around a pool; going abroad; spending time with friends, I could go on forever. But I also loooooove shopping in summer. So of course, I have done a lot of shopping, in fact this haul isn't even half of it (so expect another one)!

If you've read my blog before, you will know that i'm a shoe-a-holic. So when I saw these in Primark, I fell in love and I was at the checkout ridiculously fast. They're just tan coloured sandals, although they remind me a bit of t-bar shoes. They are so comfy, and you can wear them with anything. Plus they were really cheap at only £10!

I wear black a lot, so I was immediately drawn to this cropped lace top. It is pretty short, and the lace detailing does show off your skin a little, but the perfect amount. It's super flattering and makes your stomach look toned (if that makes any sense?!), and looks great with mom shorts and some sandals. I picked it up in H&M for only £12.99.

H&M at the moment are on point. The picture really doesn't do this top justice, but it's a really flowy cotton top, and it's also cropped. I tend to role up the elasticated band, which looks a lot better in my opinion. I will be featuring this in a ootd at some point, as it is perfect for hot summer days and looks great as a bikini cover up for your 'top half' with white bottoms. This was only £12.99.

Once again, I brought these trousers in H&M. I brought these for work experience, as they're a cigarette style and also ankle grazer so they can be dressed up or down. I am obsessed with these, they look really good with a  white crop top and brown sandals, or a blouse and pumps for work. I believe these were £14.99.

I love bikini shopping. It's my favourite 'type' of shopping in the summer. There are so many styles and patterns, there's almost too much choice! I brought a few, but i'm going to feature one in each haul). This one is a gorgeous mint green, and has frills on the top which gradually get longer at the back (high low effect). The bottom are just you're regular string bottoms. It also has detachable straps, which are very useful when you are going to be swimming and don't want to be pulling your top up all the time! I am in love with this, and I think this will be my go to bikni. I brought this off Misguided, for £17.99, and I must say the delivery was amazingly quick (I ordered using the standard delivery which was meant to take 5 days+, but it came in 2 days!!).

I hope you've enjoyed my first summer clothes haul, and let me know whether you would be interested in seeing my other items. Summer is almost here, which means i'll be able to post  A LOT more, which i'm super happy about. I feel as though I've neglected my blog a little, which is something I definitely don't want to happen on a regular basis. Yesterday evening, I went to the races for a mates 21st birthday party, which was so good but i'm also ridiculously tired. Therefore today has just been full of more puppy preparations (we get her on Wednesday, eekk!!). I apologise in advance people who follow me on twitter, I will be bombarding your feeds with adorable pictures!

JUNE FAVOURITES

July is here. That is crazy. It only felt like yesterday I was saying 'woah, its June already'.  A lot has happened this month and so I  thought  would tell you guys my favourites for June!

Batiste dry shampoo has been my life saver this month. With coursework deadlines and exams, I have been staying up too late and waking up too late to wash my hair in time (woops!). Therefore for days when my hair could do with a wash, I spray this into my roots, rub it in and perfecto. It also gives your hair volume and texture, love love love this product.

Seventeen miracle matte powder I wrote a review on this in my last post, but this powder has been my staple product this month. It has kept my oily skin matte for loooong periods of time as well as giving a lovely smooth finish to my skin. For only £3.99, this is the perfect powder for anyone with oily skin.

Mac paint pot in Painterly is the perfect base/primer for eyeshadow. It doesn't crease and it definitely prolongs my eyeshadow not creasing. It also covers the veins/redness in your eyelids, which for me is perfect if I'm just wanting to wear mascara and not have red eyelids aha!

H&M sunglasses are cheap and cheerful. Although this picture doesn't do them justice, they're more rounded and have a vintage feel about them. I love the way sunglasses can transform a look and make it look 10X more chic. H&M have a great selection, and I picked these up for only £6.99!

Primarks sandals are on point. They have the  best selection, and prices start at £2. yes, two british pounds. Crazy. I own several pairs, but this pair is one of my favourites. I love the detail of the cutouts and how festivaly/boho they look.

Those were all my favourites for this month. I hope you liked this post, and let me know whether you want more monthly favourite posts!

Ahh, summer is almost here. I am so excited for this summer, so far I have organised so many days out with my friends and most exciting of all... we're getting a puppy. Ahhh!! I think i'm going to do a whole post all about her, so I won't talk about it a lot! So this summer is definitely going to be one to remember. I hope you're all having a lovely weekend, and have a great week!

Comment, follow and all that jazz!
