The First of the Spring Buys
Friday was the Spring equinox, the first official day of Spring in the northern hemisphere. With the absolutely gorgeous weather it really has been feeling like winter has ended. The lovely sunshine has meant that for the first time since September I have been able to go outside without 62 layers on!
I went shopping with my mum yesterday and I thought I would share what I picked up with you. Let me know if you enjoy these little haul posts as I would definitely do more in the future! I hadn't intended on buying anything but what can I say, I gave in to temptation (and I can never resist 3 for 2 in Boots)
I absolutely love the navy and white stripped tee I got in Penneys (Primark) for €8. It's wide and slightly cropped with elbow length sleeves and this gorgeous crochet trimming that falls just over the waist. I love these shaped tops, I love stripes and I love crochet. This is is basically me in a tee shirt! Whist in Penneys I stepped slightly outside my comfort zone and bought a flower crown. I've been eyeing them up in other shops for ages and since this was only €3.50 I figured it wouldn't be too much of a big deal if I didn't wear it. I can definitely see me using it throughout the summer though. I love that cute-hippy look!
My sunglasses have been stretched and were too big for my head so I went in to Dunnes and picked up these sunnies for a fiver; total bargain! I'm not much of a sunglass enthusiast so they will do me just fine for all of the sunny days that better be on the way.
Right, so I cannot go in to town without having a mooch in Boots and if there is 3 for 2 on in make-up there is no way in hell I'm going to resist. I picked up the Bourjois healthy mix foundation in the shade 'light vanilla' I've been using this for a long time and I really love it. I also got on of the Bourjois Rouge edition aqua laqua's in the shade 'Viens si to roses' which is a kind of natural red. First impression? AMAZING. They last ages, look amazing and you really don't feel like your wearing anything. I'm definitely going to get some more colours in the future! Finally, after much deliberation on what my 3rd product should be, I went for one of the L'Oreal True Match Blushes. I don't have any nice blush and thought this looked pretty good, it was pretty expensive for a blush (that's why I picked it because I would get it free anyways!) So far this seems lovely and adds a natural pink flush to the cheeks.
I would love to know if you have tried any of these make-up products and what you think of them! Also, let me know your thoughts on the flower crowns? silly or cute?
