I have done a little bit of shopping recently and thought that I would share what I’ve purchased over the past week or so. It’s a little bit of beauty, accessories and some camera and home pieces as well. I guess you could say I was #feelingspendy as Amelia would say. x
Camera & Home
Recently my main camera lens had the auto focus break on it so it was time to get a new one. I headed into Blacks on Saturday and saw that they had a sale on lenses and in the end picked up two new ones. The first one I got was the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens, which is great for taking portraits, and the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 which is great for product photography and just general usage. I am really happy with both of them and can’t wait to play around with them some more. Blacks had some shadow box frames on sale as well so I picked up three of those to have put them up in my hallway. The next project is taking some photos to fill them!
I also went into Guess on Saturday and found out that they were having a one day sale where you would get 20% off your entire purchase if you spent over $100 on their purses/accessories. I have been in need of a new purse so I was looking through the ones they had on display and zoned in on the Delaney purse which I absolutely adore. It is a very spacious bag with a floating zippered compartment on the inside which is great for keeping your purse organized. It was suggested to me that I could even throw my laptop in there which I hadn’t thought of. I found out after picking it out that if you purchased a purse you would also get a free wallet, so I picked up the matching one to go with it. My boyfriend picked up this years Tiesto watch (which is stunning) and we headed to the checkout. There I found out that we had spent enough to get a free gym/duffle bag which came with a Got2B Volume Powder and NCLA Nail Stickers. All in all we had a pretty amazing time shopping in Guess and I will be putting up a post about my new bag soon!
Earlier in the week I headed to Sephora to pick up the St Tropez Dark Bronzing Mousse. I mentioned that I ran out of the original St Tropez Bronzing Mousse in my Empty Products I’d Repurchase post recently and have been wanting to try the darker version it for a while. I used it earlier in the week and it really does make your skin much more tan than the original which I am loving at the moment. When checking out the girl threw in handfuls of samples, most of them men’s cologne samples which made the boyfriend very happy, but there was also some skincare, haircare and perfume samples as well for myself.
I also ran out of my eye makeup remover so I headed to The Body Shop and picked up another bottle. It does such a good job at getting off all my waterproof eye makeup and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes. It is a bit pricey at $18 but well worth it in my books!
I took a trip to Bath & Body Works and they had a buy 2 get 1 free sale on their aromatherapy line. I picked up the Stress Relief Eucalyptus Tea Body Lotion, Pillow Spray and Body Scrub. The scent is absolutely delicious and I love using the pillow spray and body lotion before bed as it’s very calming and soothing.
Some other beauty bits I picked up were some Essie nail polishes in Penny Talk and Master Plan. Penny Talk is a metallic copper and Master Plan is a light grey. Both shades will be perfect for Fall. I also picked up the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 200 Soft Beige. I had picked up 103 for when I was using the St. Tropez original mousse, but now since I am using the darker version I picked up a slightly darker colour and it matches nicely. My review will up on my blog soon!
Lastly I picked up a fresh face mask from Lush called Oatifix. It has a mixture of oatmeal, bananas, almonds and vanilla and is really moisturizing on the skin. It also smells good enough to eat, but I can’t say I’d advise that! It was also pretty affordable at around $7 and I will definitely be picking up another tub of it when I run out!
I hope that you lovelies enjoyed my little collective haul over the last week and I would love to know what things you have picked up recently!
