New Purchases + What I Wore Today.

I literally cannot stop spending. I think I have a problem. Its ok though, because admitting it is the first step! Ah no, I received a nice sum of money in my bank account from last years Erasmus grant, in which I thought I had already fully received, but it seems that I hadn't! I thought I was seeing things when the bank statement came through the door!

Anyways, obviously with my newfound richness I purchased some new things in Topshop, Primark and MAC. I have decided that I am going to just buy 'grown up' makeup from now on and stop buying drugstore makeup unless it is something amazing. This sounds mad, but it always takes me ages to gather up a certain amount of money for something from MAC, Bobbi Brown or Make Up For Ever, because I always buy mass amounts of products from Boots instead, like foundations, powders and shadows. I have said for soooo long that I was on the lookout for a new, lovely, perfect, high-end foundation, but I went and bought Revlon PhotoReady and Bourjois Healthy Mix quite recently just for the craic. With that said, I am loving the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, which was quite surprising, but Im sure you've all heard about it by this stage, so I won't bore you with the details :) (But if you haven't heard about it, it really is lovely!)

Anyways! I finally bought MAC Studio Fix Fluid, after a lengthy chat with one of the girls in MAC, as there was a bit of a dispute over the Pro Longwear. She recommended the Studio Fix Fluid as she said it gave a heavier coverage, which I like :)
I also bought the Select Cover Up Concealer from MAC, which Im still undecided about at the moment, as its great for under eye circles but not so great for blemishes. But here are a few other things I bought.

I bought these shoes from Primark. I was a bit skeptical about them at first, as Im not really a fan of a wooden wedge, but when I saw they had been reduced from €21 to €5, I couldn't resist!

I bought Patisserie Lipstick and Mocha Blush from MAC. One of the girls in MAC applied these onto my face and I was quite happy with the result so I purchased :)

I bought these tops in Topshop, I love the berry coloured one :)
I plan to wear it out tomorrow night with my new Topshop Hareems and Kurt Geigers. :)

I got these items in the sale in Topshop. The earrings were €1.50 each and the mirror necklace was €3.50. Cute! :)
I actually purchased these yesterday and when I got home realised they weren't in the bag! Gutted. Had to go back this morning and luckily the same sales assistant was working and remembered me! So all was resolved! :)

  1. you look gorgeous as always dear, love the topshop stuff :) xx

  2. Cute choices! I'm guessing you went back for the foundation and concealer then? :) They look lovely though! For blemishes, I really like the MAC Studio Finish concealer, it's my HG concealer! But the NARS MA applied their concealer on me once and it was lovely too so.. take your pick ;)

  3. love the spoon and fork necklace :)

  4. Love that fork & spoon necklace- it's lovely :)
    I love the new Topshop shirt/tops. I got one in black & plan to wear it 2moro
    Gorgeous as ever mrs xxx

  5. Love the mirror & fork/spoon necklaces, so cool, you look really pretty!

  6. You look beautiful here. Browns and blacks (make up and clothes!) really suit you. Loving it. I feel inspired. I'mm gonna wear black and brown tonight now!! xo

  7. I use MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW15 too! The first time I ever bought the SFF the silly sales lady proclaimed I was "definitely an NW20!" - she was oh so wrong. So I've been NW15 ever since :) It's my fave foundation, though I'm tempted to try the Bourjois Healthy Mix as an everyday one x
