The Haul To End All Hauls

So I've spent a lot of money in January. More than I want to even contemplate adding up because there is a possibility I may cry. However the bonuses of spending a lot of money is that I now have lots of new things. So I figured a collective haul post was in order. This isn't everything I've brought in January just some of my favourite bits. I love having a nosey at what other people have brought so I hope you do too!


I often go through phases of obsessions with buying certain things, clothes, handbags etc. At the moment that obsession is makeup, and I've picked up a lot of new bits and bobs since the start of January. My favourite purchase has to be the Naked 2, I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but I am literally obsessed, it is beautiful, and such amazing quality, I actually picked this palette up while I was in Berlin as a little treat to myself. I hadn't heard much about Cargo Cosmetics but when I saw it on Fragrance Direct for only £13 I had to pick it up, you can read my review of it here

I've been struggling with chapped lips recently so when I saw this valentines edition lip scrub in Lush I thought I'd give it a go, and I'm glad I did. This tastes like sweets and I'm slightly obsessed with using it. Along with my Burts Bees lip balm this has saved my lips! I'm a lover of lip crayons, I think they're so easy to use and the Revlon ones stay on forever! I picked up Elusive as it's a lovely matte pink something I haven't tried before. I also picked up a Soap & Glory lip gloss sticks as they're the only lip glosses I use. I love that they're not sticky and leave a lovely shine with a hint of colour.

Ever since I got this dressing gown I've only taken it off when I've had to leave the house. It's the softest cosiest thing and It's keeping me toasty warm in my freezer of a bedroom! I picked these boots up in the New Look sale for £15, and I love them, they're comfortable (for heels) and Im loving wearing them to slightly dress up a casual outfit. The Living Well One Line A Day 5 year journal is something I'm so excited to use, you write a line each day for 5 years, it can be whatever you want, although this journal is tailored more towards living well so I've been trying to document my journey with mental health so I can look back on it in a few years.

Before Christmas I attend a Secret Santa event in Manchester held by Ladbrokes Bingo, at this event I was very lucky and won a £50 Love 2 Shop Voucher! So once the sales hit I decided to get spending, with my voucher I picked up a few bits from New Look including a super comfy pair of black high waisted jeans, and this lovely purple and navy checkered shirt. I've been loving wearing them together with my new black boots. I've been loving checks and strips at the moment and seem to gravitate towards them, hence the other checkered top and the two striped ones!

Recently I've picked up some great jewellery bargains, including these necklaces that all bar the elephant one were in the sale with over 50% off! The little elephant one I picked up in forever 21 in Berlin as I've got a thing for elephants at the moment and they seem to be on everything. I'm also loving these watches, which I think look a lot more expensive than they were (£13). They're both from New Look, and I originally got the black one which goes with everything and looks really smart, and then I saw the brown one with the gorgeous floral background and decided I needed that one too! The Brandenburg Gate Pandora charm was a treat to myself whilst in Berlin, I'm so happy I got it as I had such an amazing time. I also love that it's got a little heart on. 

I'm slightly embarrassed by the amount I've brought recently, especially as this isn't all of it! I think a spending ban might be needed for February to make up for all this spending. Let me know whats your favourite item of my haul, or if you've treated yourself to anything nice recently.

  2. We've all been there! The watches are GORGEOUS! I'm a massive fan of New Look watches. I have a rose gold one that looks identical to an Olivia Burton one I saw! And it was only £6/£7! Win! That elephant necklace is gorgeous and I may have to pick it up for myself. I love elephants!

    Let me know what you think about the S&G brow archery, I've been debating buying it for a while! I want the Anastasia Brow Wiz but it's not cheap...
