Hello Little Ones,
Today I'm giving you a
Festive Haul
or as I like to call it a

Last Sunday I decided I needed to splurge some cash on myself as it had been a while.
So I grabbed my mum and we headed off to Lakeside Shopping Centre for a
little pre christmas spree.

First up we headed to Primark.
As I hate it when it starts to get messy in there and I can't find stuff.

Tartan Dress - £15
I can't wait to start wearing this dress!
Pairing it with thick tights and some cute ballet pumps or boots
makes it the perfect look for over the Winter months.
This will definately be making an appearance over the Christmas period.

Sheer Shirt with Detailed Collar -£12
We all now know my love for collared shirts.
And I just couldn't resist this one!
With the amazing detailing on the collar this will be perfect under a jumper with the collar
peeping out.
A nice pair of dark denim jeans and knee high black boots
complete the outfit for me.

Black and Gold Tee - £12
Gold instantly transports me to the Christmas holidays.
This will be great to wear to work with some jeans and converse
during our dress down week leading up to Christmas day.

Santa Jumper - £12
How could I leave this amazing item on the shelf?
I am a full on lover of the Christmas Jumper and this will be worn on Boxing Day.
It feels super cosy and I can't wait to get it on!

Santa Leggings - £10
My mum's response when I picked this leggings up was one of distaste.
However I don't plan on wearing this outside the house at all.
They are going to be put to use as my new pj bottoms.
Anything that has santa on has to have a place in my wardrobe!

Slipper Socks - £3
With the nights getting colder now I've had to invest in some slippers.
However I hate slippers so these are a great alternative.
With their super cosy lining they have been keeping my tootsies warm in the evenings.

Super Cosy Tights - £3.50
This tights are a must buy!
At £3.50 how can you leave them, with their wollen lining they keep your legs warm
whilst still looking stylish.

Scented Candles - £4

Scented Candle - £1.50
 After pretty much burning out my Christmas scented candles already
I needed to invest in some new ones.
And Primark came up trumps!
With their set of 3 Christmas spiced candles as well as the tin
snowflake candle they were chucked in my basket with no hesitation.
They smell amazing, lets just hope I don't run out by next weekend!

After that I headed over to Lush Ltd.
I've actually never been in Lush or bought anything from there before,
but after hearing about their Christmas range I was like I must go and see
what all this hype is about!
I wasn't let down and could of ended up buying the shop!

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - £2.65
This has already been used and has converted me into a full Lush lover.
 With its vanilla scent and ability to turn your bath pink,
how could any girl not love it?
Not only that but it leaves your feeling super relaxed as well as smelling amazing!

Father Christmas Bath Ballistic - £3.25
I'm so excited to use this bath ballistic in the week before Christmas!
They say it will turn your bath into a feast of Christmas colours as welll
as having a festive fragrance!
If this doesn't get you in the crimbo mood, then you must be scrooge himself!

Golden Wonder - £3.50
Okay yes I admit it I was instantly drawn to this one
when I saw that it has the scent of a Champagne cocktail.
I mean what girl doesn't want to bathe in champagne?
This will most probably be used before my work Christmas party so I can feel extra special!

Melting Snowman - £2.25
Now I picked this one up because of the cute factor!
I mean just look at him.
I know as soon as I put them in the bath I'm going to regret melting him even more.
However once the smells of cocoa, almond and cinnamon take over I know it will be worth it
especially as they say it helps relieve fatigue.
Perfect for after all those festive drinks and parties combined with working!

After this I decided I want to have a quick little look in Boots as I was
secretly hoping that they still had some beauty calendars left.
(Wishful thinking!)
But of course the make up counters, the Christmas music and their 3 for 2 offer
meant I couldn't leave with out buying anything!

Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation - £29.50
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 110 - £5.99
Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara - £7.99
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil - £2.99
My current go to daily foundation from MAC is on its last legs,
and with no MAC in Lakeside, I needed to find something similar that I could use.
Now I've always wanted to the smashbox products and I thought what better time than now.
After telling the lady who worked for Smashbox what I was after, she told me
to take a seat and that I could be colour matched!
After 3 different shades in the Studio Skin Finish I went for
2.1 shade.
So far I've been loving the way this applies to my skin and
it actually does stay all day without leaving your face feel like your make up has melted!

The other three products are part of the 3 for 2 offer
that Boots currently have on across most of their beauty ranges.

I'm loving the Maybelline Rocket Volume mascara!
It goes on clump free and leaves them looking long and luscious,
something that every girl needs for all those Christmas Parties!

After trying the Kate Moss Rimmel in 107 and falling in love
I thought I must try another colour.
I was instantly drawn to how vibrant 110 looked and gave no hesitation in
placing it in my basket.
I can't wait to get this on and give my lips a shot of coral/orange!

And that's it...
My FestiHaul!
