Birthday haul!

So let's start it off with a bang! I turned 17 last week so I thought I would do a birthday haul post as I love all of the things that I have purchased! I mainly got money to contribute towards driving lessons but I'm quite glad that I have had quite a limited spending money fund so I could buy things that have been on my 'must have wish-list' for quite a while!

I had several trips to Debenhams and Boots and came away with lots of goodies! The top left box shows the much hyped about Real Techniques Stippling Brush, MUA Blusher in Shade 1, VIVO Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit, MAC Casual Colour in Lazy Sunday, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW25 and Estée Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Baby. I cannot begin to tell you how long I have waited to re-purchase Crystal Baby as it has to be one of my favourite lipsticks! I'm still in the process of road-testing the Studio Fix and Stippling Brush together, and so far I am very impressed!

There is quite a story behind the Lazy Sunday Lip & Cheek Colour as I went to MAC hoping to get the So Sweet, So Easy creme blush which they had ran out of. But they lovely lady managed to twist my leg into buying Lazy Sunday - it turns out there is double the product compared to the creme blush but is exactly the same price! I was sold!

I also bought the Umberto Giannini Grunge Glamour Tousled Salt Spray which actually smells beautiful! I've sprayed it into damp hair and then scrunched it, shoved it up in a messy bun and then slept on it - works a treat! 

I then rummaged through the Topshop sale and found these gorgeous wooden cross earrings which with my student discount came to £2.25! Bargain! I literally cannot stop wearing them.

After seeing these shoes all over Instagram and realising how cool they are, I've ended up having my eye on them for ages. They are the comfiest shoes I probably own and I haven't been able to stop wearing them. The only downside is that I have to be careful when I put my feet together otherwise I end up spiking myself!

Last but not least, I bought some cheapie sunglasses from H&M as I fancied a change from my usual aviator style sunnies! They are so comfortable, and really good quality to say they were only £4! 

So that is everything that I bought with my birthday money and my first proper post! I love everything and I'm so glad my money went to items that have took my fancy for a long time as opposed to splurging on pointless things haha! 

Love, Juliette xo
