This is a collective haul from the month of June. One of which the total far surpassed my budget, but.. these are all necessities, right?
These 'necessities' were purchased from a trip to Grafton St, and two trips to Dundrum.
Now for the fun part :)
Clockwise from top left:
- I finally took the plunge and went into Lush, with every intention of buying something, might I add. Being one with a very sensitive sense of smell, I nearly got knocked out by the scents, so made it a very short trip but one worth its while all the same. Getting to the point, I decided to get 2 shampoo bars, one of which I didn't have at hand to take a picture but I choose the Ultimate Shine bar & the New Nettle and Peppermint bar. I've yet to use these as I want to finish up my other shampoos first but I am super excited to! These are priced at €7.90 each.
- John Frieda Colour Renew Tone Correcting Shampoo. This helps keep brassiness in coloured blonde hair at bay. Works brilliantly. This is priced at €6.59 in Boots.
- Soap and Glory Glad Hair Day Intensive Conditioner. Priced at €3.05 (Travelsize). This stuff smells divine!
- Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Treatment: I'm not sure of the exact price but it's in around the €5 range.
- Nivea Visage Pure & Natural Day Cream. Again, not sure of the price but its under a tenner. Love this stuff.
- Pharmacy Brand Witch Hazel: I use this as a toner, so refreshing. Under €4 in Boots.
- Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub: This is in the €7 euro range. I reckon its going to last forever with the tiny amount I have to use. Tastes sooooo nice.
- I popped into Forever 21 one and turned a blind eye to all the clothes as I was fairly broke at this stage. I picked out these earrings though, and bobbins which all totaled to €8. I love the bobbins because they have no damaging steel part on them.
- Of course, I had to stop in my favourite shop EVER, River Island! These 2 things have been haunting me the past few weeks so I decided to just get them. Each were €4 and I looooove the bracelet. I also tried on these badboys, which I then ordered online as I needed the 'long' size, being 6ft.
- Inglot blush in #29: On the first trip to Dundrum, our main purpose for going there was a long awaited make-up lesson that I got complimentary at Christmas for buying a pallette but it had to be put off due to school and the like. I ended up buying this blush for €15. Its a gorgeous matte coral peach.
- MAC Paint Pot in 'Painterly': I own one MAC paint pot already in the shade 'Bare Study' and I use it everyday, so I knew I couldn't go wrong with this matte skintoned colour. Retails at €19.
Clockwise from top left again:
- I recently bought a red blazer in H&M for €20, but returned it as I felt it was bad quality. My plan was to get this red one from Zara which retails at the best part of €50, and then I spotted this copy for it in Pennies for €23. Now, obviously, the quality won't be quite as good but it feels OK and saved me some shillings.
- Next is a knit jumper from a small store here in Ireland named Catch. Sadly, they don't have an online shop but have a shop in Maynooth, in Henry Street and in Finglas. This was €22.
- The Body Shop Round Body Brush: Retails at €11.95, and I use this for dry body brushing.
- No7 Precision Eyeliner Brush & No7 Blend and Contour Brush: I bought both of these using the €7.50 No7 Vouchers, so I basically got them for free.
- Last but certainly not least, Real Techniques Stippling Brush: I finally bit the bullet and got this brush after weeks of debating. I love it, and is worth every penny, retailing at €13.50.
I hope you enjoyed this haul! Let me know in the comments below if you own any of these products, and how they work for you. :)
