Hi lovelies, today I have a post showing off a few of my current favourite things! I don't often write 'haul' posts but one of the inevitable side effects of Christmas shopping is that I end up finding things for myself as well, oops! These buys have been accumulated over the past month or so, and they're all pretty awesome spoils that I wanted to share with you, so I hope you enjoy...
Glamour Beauty Box - Latest in Beauty
I can't get over how much of a bargain this box is - seriously, £14.95 for a box worth £65! Strangely, the motivation behind buying this was initially that I needed eyelash curlers, but there's so many amazing products in here. The lash curlers work well (although velvet attracts all the dust in my makeup bag, that doesn't detract from their performance) and the Baby Lips balm is lovely (I already owned the red version, but this is more hydrating and still a nice flavour, besides, in this cold weather you really can't get enough lip balm!) 'They're Real' mascara is the best mascara ever in my opinion, and the dry shampoo and hairspray are always handy. The face oil isn't really my cup of tea, but that's more than made up for by the unexpected superstar of this gift set - the HD Brows eye and brow palette. It's such a good all-rounder, four perfect matte shades for a perfect everyday eye and brow look. These are an amazing set of products for a really low price, and I'm really pleased with this purchase.
Feather Earrings - Silver and Sand
I picked up these earrings at the Christmas markets on a day out in Winchester. I regularly wear wing earrings but I get through a fair amount as they tarnish quickly, so I thought I'd invest in these beautiful feathers instead - they're sterling silver so they'll last - that was my justification as I really couldn't resist these! I also fell in love with a pair of sparkly red heart-shaped drops which would be stunning for Christmas and New Year, oh the temptation...
Cupcake Candle - JewelCandle
I can't get enough of candles at the best of times, but especially in winter time! This smells divine, and I can't wait to burn it down to find out which jewel is inside the candle.
Moon Choker - Twirly Trinkets
Chokers seem to be popping up everywhere at the moment but I can only recommend Twirly Trinkets, my go-to jewellery seller. I've bought a fair amount of these necklaces from Penny over the years (I'm currently trying to resist adding the moon earrings and jingle bell choker to my basket, wish me luck), and they're far more unique (not to mention purse-friendly) than the ones in the shops at the moment, with options to customise and a super-friendly, fast seller. This crescent moon is my new favourite - it matches my moon wrist tattoo perfectly, I can't wait to wear it!
Oh, I can't describe how long I've waited for this 'badass' necklace to be available in silver! I also picked up this peridot ring (as it's my birthstone) which I'm also super pleased with.
This is the perfect winter handbag and has received a lot of compliments already. It's big enough to carry all of my things and hey, it's not black! This is quite the achievement for me...
Underwear - H&M
It is beyond my powers of capability to pass up the chance to buy beautiful underwear at a discounted price. This set had 20% off in H&M, I took a chance with the size, as I didn't have time to try them on before work, but by then I'd fallen in love. The colour is so beautiful, and it has a touch of sparkle that is gorgeous for Christmas.
Would you buy any of these items as Christmas presents, or just for yourself? What are your favourite purchases lately, and have you tried any of these things?
