Mini Haul!

Hey everyone! I have been doing a little bit of shopping so I thought I would share my purchases with you. I don't know if I have mentioned it recently, but in just under two weeks time I am heading back to Uni for my final year, and so, moving into a new flat with my boyfriend. I wanted to get some scented candles especially, so I picked some up from I thought while I was making an order I may as well get one of my all time faves from Yankee Candle, a large Christmas Cookie to burn over the festive period (I like to be prepared!). Christmas Cookie is a rich, buttery, vanilla scent that I abso adoree. I also picked up French Vanilla in a large jar, similar to Christmas Cookie but not so much of a buttery vanilla to burn until I can grab my beloved Christmas Cookie (It just feels wrong burning it at any other time of year!). I also got a sample of Mango Peach Salsa, a scent I had been wanting to try for ages but didn't want to fork out for the full price before seeing if I would like it. (Turns out it smells soo yummy, so I have already ordered the large size, aswell as a couple of others which I will haul once they have arrived!) 

I love buying jewellery from Ebay, I think its a great way of getting current styles for a super cheap price. I got this double finger cross ring in gold for £1.29 with free p&p from China, and it arrived really quickly. I believe this style ring is in Topshop's current season for more than triple the price so this is a real steal.The rings are adjustable so suitable for anyone too :)

 Whilst in Superdrug, I picked up this MUA eyeshadow in the shade 'Pearl'. Its gorgeous shimmery, creamy gold toned colour caught my eye instantly, plus it was only a pound! This shade reminds me a lot of my Nars cream eyeshadow in 'Mousson' although is prehaps more gold toned whereas Mousson leans more towards the silver side. 

I also got a couple of Tresemme Volume and Lift products. The first is the Touchable Finish hairspray which is meant to add volume to the hair without being sticky whilst also fighting frizz. As always, these come in the huuge bottles and my first impression is that I really like it. The smell isn't over powering and it seems to hold well without giving that 'stiff' look to the hair. The other product I got is the Volume and Lift mousse, which is suppose to give texture and volume to the hair. I bought this to compare it against my Aussie Texturising Spray which I lovee. I definitely prefer the spray application, but I do find that mousse works well to give that extra lift. I will let you know what I think of this one!

So that is my little haul! I will be sure to share my Yankee purchases when they arrive aswell as a few other little bits I have been buying! Have you bought anything you have really liked recently?
