Haul - Zara, Topshop, Urban Decay and More!

I have been doing a little bit of shopping over the last fortnight so I thought I would share with you what I bought :)

I have been looking for a really nice black blazer longer than I care to remember. I am so picky when it comes to what I want. I would rather hold out for the right one than buy something I'm not fussed with and won't wear. Finally I came across this blazer in Zara today. I have eyed it up before but never bought it because of the price tag. It is £49.99 which I guess is OK for a blazer, but I am a student after all! So my parents treated me to this today to congratulate me on completing my 10 hour Law exam yesterday. 

You may recognise this next purchase as it has appeared in my wish list a few times and I actually have the dark grey version of it already. I absolutely adore the one I already have and wear it all the time, so I figured I would get this one too since it was only £22 and I get student discount in Topshop.

This was a very naughty buy! I actually only purchased this because I thought Topshop were having a 20% off day. I only found out when I got to the till that they weren't but by then it was too late. I had already tried them on in the changing rooms and fell deeply in love. I have wanted a pair of shorts with studs on for a while. Originally I was looking for the square type, but these are pointy studs. I still love them though. Who doesn't have a space in their wardrobe for some Topshop Denim Hot pants. Even if they were £35....

Here we have a repurchase for me. This has to be my third bottle and since I love it so dearly I decided to buy the XL version this time.  If you don't already know, the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray is something which you can spritz on your face after applying your makeup and it will keep it in place all day long. It is a total lifesaver for me as I have oily skin and my makeup can sometimes shift during the day - not when I wear this though! It was £23 from The smaller bottle is normally around the £19 mark. 

This is kind of another repurchase for me. I first received this in my Joliebox a couple of months ago as a 100ml sample size. I use it to take my makeup off every night and really enjoy it so I splurged on the big bottle for  £17.80 from Amazon. If you want to know more about this product then read my review here.

Here is another long-lusted-after item. I am really excited to try this out and start doing some funky designs on my nails. Hopefully I can have a few tutorials on my blog using this once I figure out if I can keep my hand steady enough. At £6.50 it was a bit pricey but hopefully it will be worth it.

Hello mascara! If you have been following my blog for a while then you will know what a huge fan I am of mascara. When I saw this advertised in my magazine I just knew that I had to try it out. I have already tested the Volume Million Lashes which I believe this is a branch off of. I absolutely adored that so hopefully I will love this just as much. A review shall come shortly I'm sure. £9.99.

I won't talk too much about this product simply because I don't know much about it. I received it as a sample along with my Taaj makeup remover above. I believe that it is some kind of cleansing lotion but I shall investigate more into it. I'm sure that I will be reviewing it at some point to let you know how I got on, but here is a sneak peek anyways :)

Finally we have THE TURTLE CHARRRRM! Ok, this may seem odd but I have wanted this charm ever since Christmas last year. My friend and I have a running joke about the statement 'awkward turtle' and therefore decided that we would both treat ourselves to this charm when we completed our dissertation. So here it is and I love him. I think he is soooo cute!
