Homeware Haul

I've been switching it up a little on Annie Writes Beauty with the odd fashion and lifestyle post and as they've gone down rather well, I thought I would do another homeware haul. I love shopping for homeware and browsing Pinterest for some inspiration since Arran and I moved into our new flat.

August Birchbox

Birchbox are very quickly becoming the highlight of my month so when the August Birchbox landed on my door mat I couldn't wait to get the box open and see what was inside. The theme was Away We Go, celebrating Summer getaways with travelling essentials.

Lush Southampton Summer Event

Another month, another Lush event.. I just can't keep away! Lush Southampton is my local store, and like clockwork I go in almost every Thursday after work with my younger sister to stock up. The staff are fab and really know their stuff so it's always an enjoyable visit, so when the lovely Rosie emailed me a few months ago about organising an event in Southampton I was on board from the word go.

A Trip to Brighton

A few weeks ago my lovely boyfriend whisked me off to Brighton for a day to ourselves to have a wander around and explore. I'd never been there before and had wanted too for such a long time, I was like an excitable child in the morning. It took just under two hours to get to Brighton from Southampton and after filling up on Pain au Chocolats and Cappucinos on the train we were ready for the day ahead.

Make Up Revolution Iconic 1 V Urban Decay Naked

Myself and many others are crushing on Make Up Revolution big time at the moment and for good reason too, fabulous quality make up at affordable prices for every pocket?! What's not to love? I did a post last month, First look - Make Up Revolution which included the gorgeous Iconic 1, which as you can tell in the photos, is a dead ringer for another palette that is well loved by many, the original Naked palette by Urban Decay.

Blueberry by Barry M Cosmetics

Barry M and the colour blue seems to be my go to nail look at the moment.. I have so many nail polish bottles lurking around in my collection that I really should show the rest of them a little more love. Especially as this is a new one I bought on a whim last week.

Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs

Ah Daisy Dream. Probably the most beautiful perfume bottle I have ever come across. I had been waiting in anticipation for this to be released and as soon as it hit the shelves it was mine. This is the latest addition to Marc Jacobs ever gorgeous, ever growing perfume collection.

My Favourite MAC Lipstick

I love a MAC lipstick, and whenever pay day swings back around I somehow end up browsing the counters until a little voice in my head tells me that I must leave one. I jumped on the bandwagon very late and only purchased my first MAC lipstick a little over a year ago.

Topshop & River Island Haul

Although I usually blog about make up and beauty products, just like anyone else I do love a good clothing haul and July for me seemed to be the month of hauls. Today I have for you some bits I picked up towards the end of the month in River Island and Topshop. I'm a toppers girl through and through, and have been for many years, plus River Island had a sale on so it all went downhill from there.

The Decleor DD Cream

I have posted about my love of Decleor before in my Decleor Skincare - Brand Focus and Decleor Facial posts so when this little tube of goodness arrived I couldn't wait to try it out. The Decleor Daily Defence Fluid Shield has become my go to face product in recent weeks due to it being a tad too warm to wear foundation.

Candy Yum Yum V Kelly Yum Yum

As you will know if you're a regular reader I'm partial to a MAC lippy or five. I keep meaning to do a collection post but for the mean time I have a lotta yum yum for you today! I recently picked up Kelly Yum Yum from the latest Osbourne collection because I had to have something from it and that was all that was left. As you can probably tell I have one that is quite similar already, Candy Yum Yum.
