Collective fashion and beauty haul

So yesterday I went shopping with the very beautiful Hayley! Originally we had planned to have some lunch and do a little bit of shopping in our local town, Loughborough. But we soon decided we needed a proper shopping spree and went to Leicester instead! 

I've been wanting a new bag which is big enough for every thing I need, but not as big as my extra large Paul's Boutqiue bag which I plan to sell with the matching purse. Originally I saw a lovely bag in River Island which I fell in love with, it was beige with pale blues and mint green. But then we saw this bag in Topshop and for the same price, this bag was double the size and much more me so I decided on this one!

I've got a ton of make up bags but a lot of them are very old and ratty and I wanted a make up bag specifically to keep in my bag and not to be used for anything else. So I picked up this little make up bag from Topshop as well which I think goes well with the bag and is a really handy little make up bag and the perfect size for all of my make up on a day out!

And here are the lovelies I bought! The MUA and Sleek stuff is actually from some online shopping I did last week but the rest I got yesterday. Most of it was stuff I was already interested in and wanted to get, then I also got two Clarins samples after a skin consultation, a Body Shop facial buffer after seeing it in one of Estee's videos and remembering a few years back I used to use a facial buffer myself and my skin felt so much better for it. And I also picked up a couple of Good Things products after being tempted for far too long! 

As well as all of these I also bought a top from New Look, a top from River Island, two pairs of leggings and two tops from Primark. One thing I really wanted to pick up yesterday was the Real Techniques powder brush and shockingly, nowhere in Leicester had them. So that's on my list for next time I am in town as I really want to try it out! There's a lot here in my newest additions to get to grips with and see how I like them, and then you can all expect some lovely reviews!
