Glossybox UK August 2016 ‘Rae Feather’ 5th Birthday Edition!

20160813_161525

It’s that time of the month again, Glossybox time! This month is the brand’s 5th Birthday, and to celebrate, they have teamed up with luxe accessory label Rae Feather, for a box filled with 5 ‘glossy greats’ (their words, not exactly mine as you’ll see) including an exclusive item from the Rae Feather brand. Can this month’s edit live up to the amazing contents of the June & July boxes? Well, read on to find out…..

20160813_161529

It is a change from the usual pink and black Glossybox this month, with a nice pink, grey and white design from Rae Feather. It’s always nice to have a bit of a change, and while it’s not my favourite ever designed box (the French edit was a particular favourite design) it is pretty nice, love a bitta grey and pink I do!

20160813_161244.JPG

So here we have the contents! As usual, there are 5 items, this month there is a good mixture of makeup, skincare, bodycare and accessories. It’s also a bit of a mixed bag for sizes this month, with 2 full-sized items, 2 sample sizes and the random addition of a little tote bag. Let’s take a closer look at all five items….

20160813_161342

The first item is one that we had a sneak peek of; the MUA Eyeshadow Palette with mine coming the ‘Hall of Fame’ version. Now, firstly, subscribers were given the choice between four palettes at the start of July, and this was not the one I chose. So I was a tad disappointed when I saw that I had been sent a different version, however Glossybox have sent me an email to let me know they are aware that there was an error, and that they will send me the palette which I had originally chosen in my September box, which is pretty good. In their words, they are ‘turning one problem, into two palettes’ which I’m happy enough with!

20160813_161409

The palette is composed of 12 shades, which are supposedly MUA’s favourite shades from all of the existing popular palettes. I do agree that it is a pretty nice selection, and one that I should get quite a lot of use from. I haven’t tried it out yet, but we previously received an MUA palette back in the November box, and the shades were all highly pigmented and long wearing, so here’s hoping this one will be the same! So I’m pretty pleased with this inclusion, but as this is now the second MUA eyeshadow palette we’ve received within 10 months, I’m happy enough to end it there, and explore other products from the brand instead. This is valued at around €5 or €6, which is a great price for the quality!

20160813_161323.JPG

Next up, is the Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion in a 30ml sample size. Now, I hate to say it but this inclusion is so reminiscent of Birchbox for me, that I was a bit disappointed with it. It’s hard to get in any way excited over a tiny tube of body lotion…. What I can say is, it smells absolutely gorgeous, down to the inclusion of essential oils of lemongrass, ginger and rosemary in the formulation, and it’s a nice lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly into the skin, without leaving a heavy greasy residue. I do think that because the packaging is quite hard plastic, it will be pretty difficult to dispense the product once you start using it. Honestly though, it’s just a bit meh. A full-sized bottle of this is a rather whopping 300ml which retails for €25, so this little dinky tube isn’t valued too highly at all at about €2.50!

20160813_161333.JPG

The next inclusion was another miniature item, in the form of the Mudmasky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask. This is billed as an ‘almighty mask, formulated with all natural ingredients, is paraben free and claims to thoroughly detoxify skin, as it is a ph-balanced facial treatment that refines and tightens pores, hydrates, brightens and smooths skin’ so basically it promises to be an amazing all-rounder. If this lives up to all its claims, I will have pretty flawless skin eh? I am looking forward to trying this out, I love a pampering night with a decent face mask. The full size of this is a rather spendy €69 for 60ml, so this 20ml size is valued at around €23. Wowza.

20160813_161421

Next up, is another skincare item and this one is full-sized. The Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Brush is made up of a combination of bristles and silicone cushions to help massage the skin to improve micro circulation for renewed radiance. We had previously received another Spa To You product back in June with the Konjac Sponge which I loved, so I was intrigued to try this one out!

20160813_161441

First impressions aren’t too great though. I used it in the shower this evening and found it a bit difficult to work with. I’m used to using the Clarisonic so I had used some deep cleansing bristles on my face before, but this one felt pretty stiff and scratchy on my skin. Now, I’m not sure what kind of cleanser would work best with it, but I used a balm cleanser and it didn’t seem to do much with it at all, I ended up just rinsing it off with my hands in the end. I’m gonna try it out again tomorrow with a foaming cleanser instead, as I think that might be a better combination. This is a full-sized product valued at €8.

20160813_161259.JPG

Finally,  a bit of a random inclusion, was this little Rae Feather Mini Monogram Pochette. So eh, basically a little linen makeup bag. Yup. There’s not much I can say about this, I’m not too keen on the style, the beige colour with the plastic GB design is ok I guess, but I reckon that it will be manky dirty pretty quickly if it’s kept within your handbag, and I’m sure it will have makeup stains on it in no time. The interior is made of a water-resistant material, which is great, but I just think this whole addition is rather unexciting. I mean, its a fairly bland looking bag, but maybe it’s just not my style? I’m pretty sure most Glossybox subscribers are makeup enthusiasts like myself, and have more than enough makeup bags and cases in their collection. Also, this is supposedly valued at an altogether rather extortionate €23, which I just find rather unbelievable. I will probably get a bit of use from it, don’t get me wrong, but I’d just have preferred another product instead.

So that’s the lot! I found this month’s edit to be a rather mixed bag. I was pleased with the eyeshadow palette, and the face brush is something different than usual and a nice discovery for most subscribers. The face mask is a nice little addition too I guess, but the pouch and body lotion didn’t really light my fire. I loved the June edit, and the July box was by far the best I’ve received in almost 2 years of being subscribed to Glossybox, so this one was a bit of a let down in comparison.

20160813_161204.JPG

Next month’s box contains a mini mascara from Too Faced, the Better Than Sex mascara is one of my all time favourites, it’s a seriously amazing product, so I’m pretty excited to have one in my stash again! I’ve never tried the waterproof version, so I would be happy to receive either type in my box. It would be great to see some more well-known high-end brands like Too Faced included in some future boxes.

So, what did you think of this month’s Glossybox? Did you get anything different in yours? Let me know in the comments below!

Yankee Candle ‘Soft Blanket’ Review :)

20160605_175801.JPG

I’m a candle addict, I always have a couple burning in my house, I love filling each room with a different scent. On a recent candle shopping spree, I popped the Yankee Candle Soft Blanket (in the small jar size) into my basket as I was looking for a nice light scent to burn in my living room. That is exactly what this is, it’s not heavy or overpowering at all, its a nice light, subtle, clean scent that just makes you feel relaxed and comfortable when it is burning. To me, it reminds me of the Yankee Candle in Fluffy Towels, mixed with a hint of baby powder for added softness. Its a really nice warm and comforting scent to have burning in the home. Also, how cute is the little teddy bear image that they’ve used on the jar? It’s the perfect image to pair with the scent, as it is such a nice relaxing fragrance that would be great for use in a bedroom to keep you feeling cosy. I’d definitely recommend this for anyone who likes a subtle scent in their home, and it would make a great gift for anyone too!

You’ll find this candle in the usual Yankee Stockists, the small jar will set you back around €10!

What is your favourite Yankee Candle? Let me know in the comments below!

An Embarrassingly Large Makeup Haul! Featuring Becca x Jaclyn Hill, MAC, Wet n Wild, L’Oreal and tons more :)

makeupp collage.jpgYou know the drill, I’m quite partial to a spending spree. It had been a little while since I’d bought some new makeup, and I had my eye on quite a few bits lately, so I went a little wild and bought a ton of new bits and pieces. I actually feel a tad embarrassed to share this ridiculously epic haul… but let’s go ahead anyway….

20160527_112150.JPG

First up, is the Floramar Double Radiance Primer Highlighter. I’d seen tons of bloggers rave about this online, so when I spotted it in my local pharmacy I had to grab it. It’s a gorgeous radiance boosting liquid highlight that can be used either as a primer before applying makeup, or mixed in with foundation to give a gorgeous golden glow. I’ve used this a couple of times so far, and I’m really impressed! If you’d like to see a full review, let me know in the comments below. I *think* this was around the €12 mark.

20160627_193533.JPG

Sticking with the golden glow theme, I picked up the Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil, after yet again being swayed by tons of other bloggers’ hype. I’ve used this a couple of times already, applying it to my legs and collarbone for a gorgeous subtle shimmer over the skin. It looks amazing! It’s the perfect partner for some fake tan, and can also be used on the cheekbones as a nice highlight too! I found this in Penneys for €9, which is a few quid cheaper than in some pharmacies, FYI.

20160707_16070820160707_16072020160707_160750.JPG

I mentioned in my last Birchbox post, that I’d spent my points on a few bits in the Birchbox online store, and after what seemed like an age, they finally arrived! First up was the Hot Mama Blush Powder from The Balm. This is such a pretty peachy pink blush, that has a slight shimmer effect within. It suits my skin tone really well and warms the cheeks perfectly with the perfect amount of a glow! And seriously, how fabulous is the packaging? It’s a really nice slim compact with a decent mirror, which is great for travel, although the cardboard packaging may not stand the test of time if left in a handbag! This was £12.50.

20160707_160823.JPG

In previous Birchboxes I received a Spectrum brush and also a Spectrum sponge, and I was seriously impressed, so I couldn’t think of anything better to spend my points on than more Spectrum tools! I love the pink handle and the gorgeous blue bristles, it’s such a funky design. I chose the Angled Brow Brush and Tulip Eye Contour Brush. I’ve used the brow brush with my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade and it worked really well, which I’m pleased with. The Tulip Eye Contour Brush is rather massive, so I haven’t gotten around to trying it in the crease when applying eyeshadow just yet, but I think it may also work well with concealer. I’ll try it out and report back! The brow brush was £4, and the eye contour brush was £4.99.

20160707_16085220160707_160910

Finally from my Birchbox order, is this LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in the shade Perfect Cents. I’ve previously raved about another shade I’ve had from the brand, so I had to pick up another one. I love the copper style shade of this, and how easy to apply and blend on the lid it is. I’m sure to get a lot of use from this. This was £8.

Next up, I didn’t actually buy these bits, I actually won a little bunch of goodies from Wet n Wild from their Instagram page! They were all part of a Limited Edition Geometric Collection.

20160709_175601.JPG

I got these 3 pastel shades of nail polish, and I think they’re really cute for summer time. The shades are (from left to right) Lay Out In Lavender, Love Fest and Kiss My Mints. I’ve never tried any nail polishes from Wet n Wild before, so I’m looking forward to giving them a whirl.

20160709_175637.JPG

Next up came a couple of eyeshadow trios. Now, I will admit that these are not the kind of shades I’d usually wear, I’m more of a neutral kinda gal, but there are some cute colours in here that I could depot into my Z Palette and work into some other eyeshadow looks. One thing I do know is, that despite the really affordable price, Wet n Wild eyeshadows are usually fantastic quality!

20160709_175721.JPG

The final items were these Geometric Highlighting Powders, in both a pink shade and a bronze shade. Again, I have yet to try these out, but I’m looking forward to giving them a whirl! Has anyone else tried these or anything similar from Wet n Wild? Let me know in the comments below!

20160711_145602.JPG

20160711_145812

Sticking with competition wins, my sister won a gigantic bundle of Bourjois goodies, and kindly gave me some of the Rouge Edition lip products! I’m not always confident in wearing bright and bold lip looks, but I’m determined to incorporate them into my makeup routine more often! I can’t comment yet on the formula or longevity of the product, but I’ll be sure to report back when I put them to the test. The shades I have as swatched above (left to right) are Rouge Edition Soufflé 06 Cherry Leaders, Rouge Edition Velvet 05 Olé Flamingo and Rouge Edition Velvet 03 Hot Pepper. 

20160718_16375020160718_163904

Next up was an unintentional purchase. I was in Boots waiting to collect a prescription, and I spotted a ton of boxes on the clearance stand. There were lots of L’Oreal sets on offer, and I couldn’t resist picking this one up (despite knowing I didn’t need it!) It was such great value, with 4 full-sized items, including a gorgeous eyeshadow quad, a blusher, a mascara and a pinky nude lipstick all for the great price of €20. I’m currently trialling out all these bits and bobs, and will have a review of all the items on the blog soon!

20160624_10045320160624_100536

These goodies from MAC are my favourite part of the haul. Again, I didn’t buy these, my boyfriend kindly picked this Look In A Box set while travelling, and I was so pleased with it. I won’t go into too much detail here, as again, I have a blog post in the works, with in-depth reviews and swatches on all the contents. I will say, most of the items are full-sized, and are amazing quality. If you’re travelling through Duty Free any time soon, I’d highly recommend you check out these kits, because they are simply fantastic.

20160625_17011020160625_165958

My final purchase is the much hyped Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Palette. How gorgeous is the packaging? There are 3 blushers, and 2 highlighters; one being the super famous Champagne Pop and the other is the exclusive Prosecco Pop. Now, I’m ashamed to say this cost me an absolute fortune and I’ve barely used it since I got it about 6 weeks ago… I just keep forgetting to use it. Shameful. But I plan on getting to grips with it a bit better, and you know the score at this stage…I’ll report back with my findings. I ordered it from Space NK and they also popped in some little samples. I’m particularly excited to try the Becca Backlight Priming Filter.

Ok, that’s the lot! Congratulations if you made it to the end of this very long-winded post! I feel a bit mortified realising I’ve bought so much new stuff lately!

Payday Wishlist! Fashion, Books & Accesories :)

collage10101collage2

Long time, no blog, eh? Apologies for the lack of posts on here lately, after being off work for so long, I’ve found returning to the regular 9-5 routine rather difficult and draining, along with being very busy and travelling a bit, blogging has sort of taken a back seat. However, my lust for spending sprees has not waned in the slightest…. here is a quick round up of some of the latest bits that I’m coveting.

First up is this gorgeous khaki bomber from River Island. At €60, it’s a tad pricey compared to what I usually spend on single items of clothing, but oh my god I love it. I think it would be so nice over a white tee and black skinny jeans with trainers. If I get it, I think it’ll be a staple piece in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe.

Next up, also from River Island are these amazing Rose Gold Strappy Sandals. At €55, I think that’s a reasonable enough price for a pair of gorgeous heels, but I’m almost certain that they would be cripplingly painful on my feet. However, I still want them, cos I love anything rose gold!

Next up, is such a blogger cliché, a Cinema Lightbox! I just think they’re so cool, and I’d love one for the shelf in my living room to display nice little personal messages on. Yes, at €40 from My Shining Armour, they are a tad expensive, but I think it is so worth it!

On to books, there are three on my list at the moment. First up, is Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which is the official script book of the west end play, and I’m really intrigued to give it a read and see what it’s all about! Also on the list are books from  of my favourite YouTubers, Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr and The Luxe Life by Fleur De Force. I’ve read Tanya’s first book, and one of my favourite bits was the baking section, so I’d love to see what other recipes Tanya has up her sleeve. I also love Fleur, her style and makeup, so I’d love to read her second book as her first book, The Glam Guide was a great read!

Anyways, that’s the lot! I know, I don’t need any of the above items, but what can I say, I just always want things…. It’s a problem I have!!

Glossybox UK July 2016 Review!

20160710_161210.JPG

You guys know that my favourite time of the month is Glossybox time! I love arriving home to find a little box of surprise beauty goodies waiting for me after a long day of work. This month’s edition was fantastic, filled with 5 full-sized items! There’s a great mix of makeup, hair care & skin care items, from some familiar brands and other new discoveries. Let’s take a closer look….

20160710_161405.JPG

First up, is the UTAN & Tone Nourishing Night Creme, which we were given a sneak peek of last month. This is a 25ml tube, which seems pretty small for a full size! Anyway, this magical formula contains all the usual benefits of night creme including hyaluronic acid, vitamins and anti-oxidants, along with a gradual tanner that promises to give the skin a light golden colour. It’s an odourless formula that won’t stain your pillow, seriously could it get any better? I’m usually too scared to self tan my face, so this sounds like it will be perfect for me to use when I’m tanning my body so I don’t have a ghostly face and a bronzed bod! This full-sized tube retails at €15.

20160710_161356.JPG

Next up, is the Icona Milano Emotion Allowed Mascara. Apologies for the lack of photos of the wand, I already have a couple of mascaras on the go, and I really don’t wanna open another one in case it dries out too quickly! This is a new brand to me, I’ve never heard of them before. This mascara has a water, sweat and humidity resistant formula that promises an intense colour and a buildable formulation for an amped up false lash effect. It all sounds great to me! This is also full-sized and valued at €15.60!

20160710_161414.JPG

Also in the makeup category is the Hawaiian Tropic Island Berry Lip Gloss SPF 25. We received another Hawaiian Tropic product a few months ago that I loved, so I was pleased with this inclusion. It’s a rather massive 20ml squeezy tube, with an impressive SPF25, which I’ll admit, I never really think of sun protection for my lips, but it’s a nice addition. This is a light non sticky formula that applies easily and smoothly, leaving a nice coral flush to the lips. I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I do, I’ll definitely get a lot of use from this one! This is a full sized item valued at €9.

20160710_161437.JPG

The next item included is the Blank Canvas Cosmetics F20 Flat Brush. Oh. My. God. How gorgeous is the hot pink and gold design? I’m in love. I’ve bought Blank Canvas Cosmetics brushes before and I really like them, so I cannot wait to give this one a whirl. It’s a multi purpose brush constructed from short, dense, synthetic fibres that can be used for cream, liquid or powder products! I plan on trying it out as a way to apply foundation, as I love buffing liquid products into the skin with brushes like these as they give a more flawless look. I’m seriously so impressed with this inclusion, its possibly one of the best items that I’ve ever received in a Glossybox! This is valued at €15. (I’ll be sure to report back with my thoughts once I test it out a few times.)

20160710_161501.JPG

Finally, we come to hair care, and the Hairon De-Tangling Brush. Again, I was so pleased to receive this. It reminds me of my much-loved Tangle Teezer, but the difference with this one is that its supposed to work great on wet hair, when it’s more vulnerable to breakage. It’s an ergonomically designed brush which fits perfectly into the palm of your hand to carefully detangle wet hair without snagging and tugging. It also claims to be great for natural hair extensions that need a touch up, and can also be used on dry hair. I quickly ran it through my hair earlier, and it feels lovely and comfortable to use and didn’t pull too hard at my rather straggly ends! I’m well impressed! This is also full-sized, and valued at €9!

20160710_16151920160710_161527

So there you have it, a practically perfect Glossybox in every way! Five full-sized items, a great mixture of hair care, makeup & skin care products, and completely relevant to this current season. I wish I’d received this box before I went on holiday, because the contents are absolutely perfect for anyone travelling to sunnier destinations this summer, with everything based around beach life, with sun protection, fake tan, and waterproof makeup all included, not forgetting perfect multi tasking brushes for your hair and your makeup! This box is valued at a rather substantial €64 (which greatly surpasses the €14 pricetag!) Birchbox take note-this is how you do a beauty subscription box!

In my 18 months of being subscribed to Glossybox, I think this just might be the best ever box. If all boxes were this good, I’d be one seriously happy customer. I do think Glossybox has been knocking it out of the park for the past few months, they just keep getting better and better. Next month, subscribers can choose between which one of four full-sized MUA Eyeshadow Palettes they would like to receive in their boxes, which is great!

If you’re interested in signing up for Glossybox, it costs £10/€14 per month (plus P&P) but at the moment they’re running a great deal where you can get TWO boxes for the price of one, that’s 10 products for the bargain price of £10/€14!! You can sign up for this great offer here. 

What did you think of this month’s edition? Did you receive anything different in your box? Let me know in the comments below!

HUGE Fashion & Homeware Haul feat. Primark, New Look & Tons More!

PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Yup, there has been some more hauling over here on Just My Look. At this stage I’ve given up on disclaimers about my spending, you all know I just like things. All I can say is this collective haul has occurred over the last 4 weeks or so, not just in one big spree…. Anyways, let’s get cracking, as there’s ALOT to talk about!

First stop is Penneys (which is the Irish name for Primark) where I picked up a few bits…

20160620_150106.JPG

Yup, I’ve picked up another Snow White nightie. You’ll have seen from my last haul that I got a nice one in Dunnes Stores, but that didn’t stop me buying this one in Penneys! I just love the whole Evil Queen design on it, and the scared Snow White print, along with the pink and white colours. I picked this up in a size small, but after wearing it a few times I wish I’d gone for a bigger size to wear it a little baggier for comfort. This was €10.

20160627_193720.JPG

Yup, this is TMI cos I’m sure nobody wants to see my pants, but I got these cute Little Miss & Mr. Men boypants in Penneys for the bargain price of 50 cent. They’re so comfy, and I always loved Mr. Men when I was a kid, so I thought why not, eh? Can’t beat a nice pair of comfy pants😛

20160627_193825.JPG

More childish items, this time it was this cute Mickey Mouse tee. I love the brownish/purple colour, and the striped design on the sleeves, along with the understated Mickey logo on the chest. Seriously, I cannot get enough of Primark’s Disney tops. This was €8. I’d like to say this will be the last Disney tee that I buy for a while, but with the deposit finally being placed on my 2017 Orlando trip, I know I’ll continue to buy Disney clothing for the next few months!

20160708_124241_HDR20160708_124212

Next up, are some shoes that I knew I needed as soon as I spotted them on social media, so when I saw them in store I practically grabbed them and sprinted to the tills! I just adore these beautiful embroidered heels, the design is just so pretty! Now they’re quite high and let’s face it, with the whole pointed toe and stiletto heel, I know these are not gonna be too comfy. But I think they’ll be really nice worn with a simple cami top and a pair of skinny jeans, as a statement heel. These were a great price at €22!

20160708_124004_HDR20160708_124022

I also picked them up in this beige/nude colour too. It’s the same style, but I thought the lighter colour would be nice for wearing in the summer and will go with different outfits than the black ones. And basically, I found it hard to decide which ones I preferred, so I got both!

20160528_180237.JPG

Next stop, New Look, where I picked up this nice cream crop top. I was instantly drawn to the cute floral lace design, and I thought it would match really well with my grey maxi skirt from BooHoo. I have already worn this while on holiday in Spain, and it works so well with the long skirt, which is high-waisted, so not too much of my belly is on show. I can’t remember how much this cost, I think it was around €12. I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of this one!

20160627_19355120160627_19361120160627_193642

Also in New Look, I spotted some Copper items on their Homeware Sale stand and zoomed right in on the candle holders. From previous hauls, you’ll know I love Copper homeware items, and I am candle obsessed, so I had to pick up these cute little tealight holders for my living room. The teeny little tealight holders were reduced to €1.25 for the set, and I think they’ll be perfect for around my fireplace. The trio of glass tealight holders were *I think* €6, which is also a great price. I’m not sure where I’ll place these, as I have a ridiculous amount of candles and tealight holders dotted all around my living room as it is at the moment!

20160527_11195720160527_112032

Next stop, Tiger (or Flying Tiger as I believe is its new rebranded title) where I picked up some random useless items. I got this little metal shopping trolley, which I think is meant to be a desk tidy, but I thought it would work well for taking blog photos. I also got this pack of mini wooden pegs, which I’ve actually bought before, for hanging photos and other things on a string in my house. I think the trolley was €4 and the pegs were €2.

20160527_11261120160527_112618

Next up, I popped into Dunnes Stores and spotted this basic grey cardigan hanging on the sale rail. I already own the same type of cardi in burgundy that I picked up in the January sales, so I knew how comfy this one would be. The grey colour means it will go with so much in my wardrobe, and I love the nice long length. This was €10 in the sale.

Next stop Pull & Bear, where I spotted this cute slogan tee. I like the loose baggy style, and think it’ll be cute for wearing with leggings or jeans. It would be a perfect gym tee (if I actually ever did any exercise…) but for me it’ll probably be perfect for a bad day in work! This was €7.99.

While I was in Spain, I found a Bershka store near to our hotel, and with a big sale going on, I had to pop inside and check it out! I saw so much stuff that I liked, but with luggage restrictions I had to keep my haul small. So although it was tough, I stayed away from all the cute shorts, playsuits and dresses that I knew I’d never get to wear in Ireland (let’s face it, our summer is the same as our winter!) so I picked up these 2 cute sweaters. I love the slogan on the first one, and the really nice wine colour will look nice with jeans and trainers. Then I chose the basic grey as it will also go with jeans, or my black and white Adidas tracksuit bottoms. These were a great price at €5.99 each!

Also in Spain, I spotted this popcorn bucket in the window of a novelty shop, and had to pick it up. I love any cute American style accessories like this, and as it reminded me of a popcorn bucket that Zack Morris would’ve munched from at the movies on Saved By The Bell, I had to pick it up. This was about €2.5o, which was a steal. I cannot wait to fill it with my favourite combination of microwave popcorn with butter, mixed with Malteasers. Delish!

Another random somewhat pointless purchase were these storage boxes that I picked up from TK Maxx. I loved the pink and mint colours mixed with rose gold, and I think they will be great in my ‘Beauty Room’ for storing makeup and other bits and bobs in, on my shelves. I think the smaller pink box was €6.99 and the larger green one €8.99 or thereabouts!

Also in TK Maxx I rather randomly chose this clipboard with 12 different prints of inspiring quotes, that you can mix and match to display somehow. In my mind I was like oh it’ll look great in Instagram posts (sad, but true) but I hope to display these on my shelves in my beauty room too. I think this was around €8.

Finally, I didn’t buy this, but I won it on a competition on the Celtic Candles Facebook page. I’ve mentioned my love for Celtic Candles before, so I was so pleased to get my hands on this! It’s such a cute birdcage style candle holder that has 4 little glass jars inside to pop some tealights in. I think it’s really pretty and girly, I love it! Now I just need to find a space in my house for it. This was worth €30, so it was a great win for me!

So, that’s the lot. Can I just say, well done if you actually made it to the end of this ridiculously long post! I have some more haul posts coming up, focused on makeup and beauty items, as I’ve been pretty spendy in the cosmetics section recently!

Hi guys! Just a quick note to say that I’m off on my holidays to Spain for the next week, so things on Just My Look will be a bit quiet for the next 7 days or so, as I haven’t scheduled any posts  to go up. But I have quite a few posts up my sleeve for when I return, so you can expect lots more hauls, skincare & haircare posts in July:)

You can still keep up with me on Twitter and Instagram while I’m away!

Have a lovely week everyone x
