Primark, H&M, Poundworld etc Haul

Hauls are my favourite post to do. I love looking at hauls on other peoples blogs, its fun to be a little nosy and get ideas.

Late September I went shopping with two of my lovely friends in our local town. We mainly visited Primark but popped into lots of other shops too.

I picked up a beautiful black knitted dress with a white collar from Primark. It had that kind of preppy feel to it which I liked. At £12 you can’t really go wrong. I picked up a size 10 and found with this item the sizing was slightly on the larger side.

I picked up a beautiful blue nail varnish from h&m called ‘Serenity now’ and a blue glitter polish caught my eye called ‘Did I tell you’ and thought they would be perfect together. Post on this soon! I bought some other bits too ;)

Have you been in Primark lately? What have you been swooning over in the shops? Xx

Leeds Weekend & Trinity Shopping Centre Haul

Hey you!

Today I wanted to show you a few bits I picked up in leeds shopping. I visited my auntie for a weekend and we spent a whole day shopping, it was lots of fun! 

We visited the trinity shopping centre which is fairly new and I’ve never been before and was rather impressed. I will be doing a separate blog post on this soon!!

I tried not to overspend while I was out and only pick up things I absolutely can’t live without. First off we popped into Next and they had a fabulous sale on. 

My eye was drawn over to the scarves straight away and I fell in love with the check patterned ones. I couldn’t choose between the pink and orange so I bought both and luckily there were on sale half price.

Later on we went into Accessorize and their pieces at the moment are gorgeous. I immediately saw a winter green trilby and after trying it on had to have it.

The Oasis store was really bang on trend and I could have spent a lot more in there. I tried on a pretty dress and was pleased with the style and fitted me well. I picked up a company magazine too.

Have you been to Leeds for shopping? What do you think of my purchases? xx

Soap & Glory Pulp-Friction Foaming Fruity Body Scrub 250ml (£8.00)

Today I’m going to be doing a show and tell on a beautiful product I’ve been using. I received Soap & Glorys Pulp Friction as a gift and have been delighted with the results after use. It’s probably not something I would pick up myself but I’m so glad I’ve been introduced to it. I’m not one for fads and was just a tinsy bit sceptical at what the scrub claimed to do. 

To start off with the packaging is wonderful (like most of their items!). The fragrance is hard to put a finger on at first but the bottle states fig, peppermint oil, lemonade and orange! The scent is pleasant but I’m not always reaching to have that additional cheeky sniff! ;)

The consistency is just right and includes little beads to exfoliate. After massaging into damp skin I found it foamed up very well. There was no waste because the cream was easy to work into the skin and there weren’t any clumps. It was easy to wash off too.

After stepping out the shower and drying I found my skin to be a lot smoother. It’s a treat to use and have been totally converted to the Soap & Glory brand.

I think Soap & Glory are really on the money with this product and after researching it further on the boots website I found it had won a couple of beauty awards. (Buy here!)
