So my flatlays definitely need work. Definitely have a new found respect for instagrammers who churn them out perfectly day after day.
So two days ago I posted a picture on instagram of my shopping bags from the UK and a few of you requested a haul so here is part one. There may be a few hauls coming on my blog soon: I have a Dubai make up haul, a duty free haul and I've just done a large US Sephora order as well.
I went shopping with my mum to Manchester and purchased two items from the Dior boutique there. I wanted to change my wallet so the first thing I bought was this black envelope wallet in black bullcalf leather with a hot pink lining. It has 9 card slots, a zipped pocket and the Dior detachable charm.
I then got the Eden Gusseted card holder in the same hot pink lambskin. My current Louis Vuitton wallet is huge and the Dior wallet is much slimmer so I can decant some of the cards I don't use regularly into the card holder.
I picked up three things from Tom Ford. Firstly the beautiful new Honeymoon quad-I am seriously into warm toned shadows at the moment and this quad has beautiful gold and plum tones. I can't wait to use it!
I picked up another Drake lipstick because I have lost mine! I've reviewed this lipstick already here, it's a shade that's really unique in my collection but is perfect for Autumn.
I couldn't resist the stunning summer limited edition palette. I love the white and gold compact and the split pans of highlight, blush and bronzer look so beautiful.
I've wanted these sunglasses for so long! They're the Baby Marta from Celine and when Sarah came to visit in April she is lucky that she managed to escape with them on her person. These are the only solid black frames I own so they were a needed addition to my sunglasses collection....
The only disappointing thing is that they're housed in a velvet pouch rather than a hard case, so the naturally clumsy Stacey needs to be on her best behaviour with these.
Finally I swung by Jo Malone and picked up their newest release, Basil and Neroli. Ok so I don't have a very strong sense of smell but I used to and I know what I like. I also love my apartment smelling nice and fresh and clean. So when I read Nic's review, I knew I would buy it. Nic does the most epic fragrance reviews and this one sounds right up my street.
Hope you enjoyed this haul and let me know if when the US Sephora order arrives you want to see a post about that.
