Florida Haul

Hi dolls,

Still trying to get my system back into UK time no matter how I try and sleep at night I am still wide awake - always the worst thing I find when coming back from holiday. Anyways, as I am a little behind on reviews (so much to review yet so little time) I figured I'd do a little haul. 

Little disclaimer; I'm not trying to show off, I spent a while saving up my money for this stuff and working two jobs and just want to share these great products with you lovely people.

So I hadn't been into a Sephora since I went in Paris and I knew I was going to go a little mad as stuff was a little cheaper and these were products I wanted at home but figured I'd get them while I was away.

So makeup wise I created a little list on the Sephora website and was lucky that they had all the items in stock. When I saw the Benefit mascara duo I knew for the same price I had to snap that up and can I just add the travel sized mascara is the cutest thing ever! Be perfect to pop in my bag incase I'm running late and can just apply this once I get to uni. 

I wanted to get the UD brush after buying the foundation, I love the way it works with the foundation and just helps apply it flawlessly, looking forward to seeing how it applies with my other foundations. 

My Mac products were mixed with repurchases and a few items that I had wanted for a while, I did manage to snap the lipgloss up in the CCO for an amazing $11 which is ridiculously cheap for Mac when converted back and this was something I was actually after in the CCO in Chester but they had none in stock apart from the tester.

Quite happy to get these Clinique products as these were the first full sized products that I have purchased from the brand (yes I know why has it took so long? ) but I tried the one lipgloss in InStyle and knew I'd purchase the full sized as I love it so much. The pore refining was actually a freebie with my Sephora card as I managed to build up quite a few points while I was over there. 

Finally managed to get my hands on the Nars Orgasm blusher, this is something I had been deciding about for absolutely ages as I wasn't sure about it but once seeing it in Sephora I was sold. 

I am in love with my Make Up Forever starter set, I knew I'd get the foundation while I was over there but when looking at the price for the foundation and the kit I figured I didn't mind spending the little bit extra as it gave me chance to try out there other great products. 

The Taylor Swift perfume was a present from the boyfriend as he decided to be nice so that was sweet, and the eyelash curlers weren't actually from Sephora but Nordstrom as nowhere seemed to have them and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get them as I tried so many stores.

Now these are 21st birthday presents from myself, family and the boyfriend so I am very grateful to both as it's not my birthday until November. 

The necklace is a piece that I just adore and have had my eye on it for ages, there was just something about it and it's so different - not the tiffany locket and was lucky to get it as we went in and the sales assistant wasn't sure that they had any but managed to get the last one that they had. 

The bag and purse were presents to myself as I wanted to start my designer bag/purse collection and knew these were two products that I will have for many years to come. You will have to ignore my little headscarf on it just don't want to dirty the patina as I've heard the oils in your hand can dirty the handles quite easily and I managed to do this slightly while I used it on holiday. The only sad thing was when buying these is that the purse cost as much as the flaming bag - but what can I say it was love at first sight!

Anyways that was it, I hope you liked and I should be doing reviews on these products soon so if there are any you want posting first let me know and I can see what I can do.
