The Meadowhall Haul


Last weekend I took a trip to Meadowhall with Bear and we had a lovely few hours of shopping. I had some birthday money that I wanted to spend and what better place than Meadowhall?! We also stopped at TGIF (obviously) however I didn't take any photos as I was too busy stuffing my face. Not everything I brought is featured, but this is most of it; 

I've wanted a new make-up bag for ages as mine is seriously gross, so I dragged Bear into Cath Kidston and came out with this little pretty! Bigger than the one I have now, this is a beautiful pale blue with floral (obviously) and I adore it. I haven't even put anything it it yet cause it's too nice! I also took a trip to Boots and purchased two of the new Speckled Egg collection from Models Own. I brought Magpie (green) and Duck (blue) and my lovely friend Kerry brought me Swan (lilac). There will be a review coming up on these in the next couple of weeks!

Bear also let me wander into MAC. What was he thinking? I've been wanting an empty pro-palette since, forever so I took the plunge. At £22.50 I was actually really impressed and the girl told me that the refills are only £10 - then she gave me a £5 gift card! Definitely going back next month for my first eyeshadow! I've also been wanting a new, spring blush for a couple of weeks now. I love my Rockteur but it's being used up fast and I want something a bit brighter. In comes Satin Taupe. Oh my days, what a beautiful colour! It's a very, very light baby pink (it looks dark in this picture, it isn't) so light in fact, I wouldn't wear it on a night out. But for natural days, or days where I don't want to wear too much face cake, this does the job! And at £18, it's cheaper than Benefit!

All hail the Hunters! These are actually what I went to Meadowhall for. My brilliant Bear brought me these for my birthday. What kinda girl asks for wellies for her birthday, I hear you ask? Well, the kind girl that wishes she was a farmer. To be honest, I've needed some new wellies for about a year, the ones I wear to Uni are ditched and, well, cheap. How pretty are these! At £85, they were a bit of a splash, but if you can't buy expensive wellies, what can ya do?!

I also brought two crop tops from Topshop, a black and a stripey one that are currently in the wash, hence no picture. I purchased some Lush items - Fizzbanger, Cosmetic Warrior and Mumkin, but these will have separate reviews. But anyway, a lovely little haul! I loved my day out with my handsome man and shopping makes me want to sqeal with happiness - especially when it's not my money, ameeenn.

What do you think of my products?!
