Trip Back Home Haul

collective haul 8

So I have spent the last week and a half on holidays. Instead of going some far away place, I simply travelled 3 hours back to my hometown to spend time with my family. I haven’t been able to spend that long down in that town since getting my job in October 2013. Void of responsibility, I did a lot of impulse buying. Of course, some of it is useful but it was still impulse.

Watch – Target – $20; I have bee obsessed with Rose Gold lately and really wanted a watch so this is the nicest (affordable) one I have found.

NYX Eye Shadow Base – Target – $?; I see so many  tutorials that use MAC paint pot as a base, so I wanted to find a cruelty free dupe.

Rimmel 60 Second Super Dry – Target – $5.95 each; These were the biggest impulse buy. Seriously, putting pretty items to look at whilst waiting to buy your other items, is a smart move for the stores, and bad for my wallet.

Books; So I was waiting for after my uni assessments for the latest Maximum Ride (James Patterson – Collins Booksellers)book, so when I went to buy it, I decided to get a few more books. It has been so long since I spent quite a bit of money on books. So I bought Girl Online (Zoe Sugg – Collins Booksellers) because I have heard so much about it and The Dolls (Kiki Sullivan – Collins Booksellers) because the book looked pretty. I also got I, Justine (Justine Ezarik – Target) because with building my blog and YouTube, I love reading others’ journeys.

W7 Cosmetics – Chemist Warehouse – $5 each; it was a buy 2, get one free sale, I couldn’t pass it up! I picked the two shadows (Yummy Eyes and Chunky Eyes) because I have been wearing a lot of gold eye looks lately – and the palette looked similar to the Real Techniques Night Owl palette so I decided to try it.

Mug – Target; it was only $4 and so cute. I love mugs. (Not pictured as I got it later, and left it at home)

Candles – homeware store – $4.95 each; A few years ago, I found a candle in target that smelt like Ginger and Maple and honestly it smelt amazing, exactly what I imagine an American or British autumn to smell like, but I didn’t buy it and I have been looking for one ever since. Then the other two scents were just some more autumny goodness that I thought smelt amazing.

I also got a mosaic image of a rabbit that I got for my glory box. I honestly can’t wait to get out of my share house and into my own apartment.

So after way too much spending, that’s what I got. But I did have a lot of fun in my hometown, and it was nice to get away and relax.

I will also be uploading a video of this to my youtube channel if you want to check it out!
