I know, I know... but Steff you posted a haul yesterday! Well, the rest of the things I ordered online arrived in the mail today and I wanted to share them with y'all! This is called an 'Urban' haul because the items I bought are all from Urban Outfitters and Urban Decay.
I've needed a new brand of Sea Salt spray since I ran out of my Umberto Giannini sea salt spray, I really loved it but the scent wasn't the best. I really love the pump that is on the top of this canister, rather than a push down one that you get on most spray-type products, this has a squeeze pump like on a spray bottle. It smells great, and gives your hair a whole load of body and texture, I honestly prefer this over the Giannini product. I can't find a link for this exact product as UO seems to be out of stock at the moment, but check out this Beach Babe texturiser instead for the same price (£7).
I've been lusting after some tie dye clothes for a long (LOOONG!) time, and finally bought some tie dye Vans from Urban Outfitters. I'm really pleased with these, I have several pairs of converses and since I bought them (2-3 years ago) my feet have gotten a little wider at the toes. These Vans are the perfect shape for my feet, they are less 'long' like Converses and a little 'wider'. These are a little darker in colour in person, than on the website. I really like the swirled design on the toes, these set me back £55.
I always shop the sales at Urban Outfitters, and finally something caught my eye. I'd seen this pair of BDG Wynona Washed Ankle Cigarette Jeans a few months back, but at £65 I really couldn't part with my money. (I'm willing to part with £'s on shoes because I'd rather have really good, stable shoes and cheap clothes rather than expensive clothes and shitty shoes) Luckily, I decided to check out the UO sale, and they had these for £15! That's a £50 reduction, and I used a student 10%off code meaning that they were only £13.50! Happiness!!! I love these jeans, they fit really well and are a little stretchy which I like because it means they fit better. I've never had a pair of studded bottoms before so it's a first.
I found out that Debenhams had a 10% off sale on all their makeup brands (including MAC) which I'd never seen before. So, being the makeup fiend I am, I took advantage of it and bought 2 things I'd been lusting after from Urban Decay. The 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in Bourbon is a beautiful dark brown slightly shimmery/metallic eyeliner. I literally LOVE this pencil, it's so creamy and stays on for ages. Obviously I'll do swatches/reviews etc. of my makeup purchases. I bought this in the 10% sale for £12.60 reduced from £14.
Yes...I gave in to the Naked thing that seems to haunt all beauty bloggers and YouTubers. I decided on the Naked 2 palette because I found that the Naked 1 had two blue-toned shades at the end of the palette, and on my eye colour blue looks horrible. I found that a couple of the shades in this palette were purple-tones, and purple looks brilliant on my eyes so I went for this one. I thought that the packaging would be great for travel, and I really wanted to try Blackout. I got this for £32.40 in the sale rather than £36.
I'm really happy with my purchases, and since I'll be taking all but the jeans to Florida, I consider it pretty productive...in a shopping kinda way.
I'm aiming to buy some cheap trainers that look like Vans and customising them (DIY tutorial), and maybe customising some denim shorts too in the future.
