Weekly Haul // Fashion, Beauty, Glasses?!

Hey lovelies, I'm back to posting more often again! As nothing is ever on TV these days apart from X factor on a Saturday night, I might as well post. For me X factor this year just isn't any good. It's all same old. Saying that it is on in the background, just in case. I have sooo many post ideas, I just need time to write them all. So as my last 'weekly haul' was popular and I'm in love with a few of my purchases this week here it is! 
Saying that about X factor, I'm sat here commenting about it on Twitter.

  • Headphones - I seem to go through so many pairs of headphones, it's stupid. They either crack, get lost or the sound goes. For someone who normally isn't into pink as much, lately, I want pink everything nearly. Made sure I picked the brightest hot pink they had. What else can you say about headphones? They work? They come with 3 different sizes? Good when you have tiny ears. £9.
  • Impulse spray - £1.99 - Free Barry M Lip gloss - Boots. These are from the offers Boots and Superdrug started back in the summer. They were taped together back then, but I guess boots are selling them off cheaper and letting you actually pick the scent and colour. I always wanted the clear/glitter but it came with the one spray I hated. And I adore the pink. I have 3 or 4 of the pink now. Go through them so quick. Getting to the end of some. Gutted because it tastes and smells amazing and is a gorgeous colour. I adore Tease. It's my favourite scent from impulse. Followed by the other Impulse spray pictured. Still not as good as the So..? brand I blogged about.
  • Well I had another No7 voucher. So as last weeks Haul, I went back in and picked up one more nail varnish. Instead of £7, I got it for £2. I'm really loving the No7 nail varnishes and for £2 why not. They're so glossy when they go on. This is the shade - Highland Mist.


These are the boots I've been deciding whether or not to get for the last 2 weeks. Today I made the decision to buy. I'm glad I did. I'm in love with them and not just because they make me a few inches taller, every little helps when you short ;). These retail at £29.99 - have £5 off to £24.99 - and if you picked up a 20% off voucher in store back along, if you pay with your Newlook card, you have another £5 off. £19.99 for a pair of boots isn't bad! Now remember in my post with my other pair of boots I've recently purchased....I said how I want black boots...And yet again I've purchased brown boots! For me the black boots in the shops this year just aren't anything special. They do black in these boots, they look horrid. But each to their own? Shame Newlook doesn't ever have many size 3 shoes anymore. I had to get a 4, so they're a tad big, joy of having baby feet :/


I ordered this online a few nights ago, not impressed with Newlook's delivery anymore. Bring back Mr lovely delivery bloke, rather than some bloke who nearly breaks my front door banging and ignoring the whole door bell in front of him. Any way, I had two items to show you, that were complete bargains. One went back today, it didn't look anything like the image on the site and smelt horrid!? Disgusting. It was an 8, as there were no six's left and it was huge! Must of been 10 times too big. It was just a sheer white shirt with a few gems over. Looked nice online. Horrid in person. The item I kept was a bit of love and hate, I love the pattern, I think it's pretty damn cute and you know me I love my sheer shirts and of course birds! Now they sadly never made this in a 6. So for an 8 being the smallest you'd think it would be, it's a bit on the big side, but it looks alright on, I wore it today. Everyone likes it. And for an online exclusive/flagship not many will have it! Result. Why do sheer shirts always look big on the hangers in photos? :P Oh and did I mention it only cost £6!? Down from £18.99.


And lastly, Monday I went for an eye test. Turned out I needed glasses. Not all the time. Thank god. Just for when I need them or driving. I'm not blind yet ;). I hated the idea at first. But today I collected them and I don't mind them anymore. Such hard work picking these. I'm fussy. Seriously, out of the 173913917 pairs in the store you'd think there would be loads I'd like. No. Finally I found these. I only wanted black. Fussy about the shape/frame. And wanted something on the side. So a nice bit of bedazzle will do ;) Everyone loves these. I think they're pretty cute! Trust me to pick, pretty much the most expensive in store ;) I got another pair too, as you can see. These are tinted, perfect for when I'm driving around in the sunny weather etc.


What has everyone else been buying this week? I hear that now I've bought more winter boots, the weather is supposed to be getting hot again!? In October again?! Leave a comment if you like any of the above or if you've got any of it. :D

  9. Lovely post! :)
    I didn't buy much this week, only a Yankee candle & some cheapo flats from Penneys! (Primark) that won't last long ha! :)
    I had to get glasses a few months back too because of the big lecture halls in college..I'd say I wore the about 5 times & I was cured, LOL! how does that work! I need to start using them again though as my eyes get funny in class! I was the same with picking them out, I eventually ended up with a Michael Kors pair as it was the only ones I liked!
