Autumn Beauty / Fashion Haul: Topshop, Zoella Beauty, Soap And Glory
I found university pretty uninspiring for a while and, of course, when lost for anything else to do, you go shopping. And that's what i did. I went down to Birmingham with my family and stocked up on the things I was needing (with some added extras).
First of all I made use of the 3 for 2 offers in Boots and decided to purchase my first Soap and Glory beauty items. I've heard a lot about their products in the past but always overlooked the brand and opted for something else (usually L'Oreal - if you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know I love L'Oreal) but this time I thought I'd give Soap & Glory a try. I was in need of a backup felt tip eyeliner and since the Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner has received so much love, I decided to give it a try. So far I'm loving it just as much as my previous favourite felt tip liner and it's around the same price.

Secondly from Soap and Glory I decided to get a new blush / highlighter. The 'Love At First Blush' is described as a blusher but personally I've been using it as more of a pink-toned highlight. It gives a really nice sheen and I've been using it in preference to other highlighters from MAC and Benefit so it was definitely worth the money.
And finally, of course, I needed the third item and since it's Autumn I decided to go for the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in 'Raplumzel'. I've heard Fleur DeForce and others talking about these gloss sticks so I decided I would buy it because I love anything remotely plum lately and I always seem to be losing my others. It has a really nice chocolatey sort of scent and is quite thick and moisturising on the lips. I'm loving it so far!
As I got in the queue to pay, I came across the Zoella Beauty stuff and could not resist, deciding to buy the Soak Opera bath soak & shower cream and the Creamy Madly Dreamy body lotion. Both products have the same sweet sort of scent which I can't really describe but it reminds me of my childhood. The smell lasts quite a while too which is always a good thing. I definitely found that the body lotion smelled a lot nicer when it was actually on my skin rather than in the tube. I'm going to be doing a review of these products after I've given them a bit more use, hopefully!
And last but not least, I needed some long sleeved tops for Autumn and Topshop is always trustworthy for providing me clothing that I will love. I have this ribbed crop top in the short sleeved grey version but since it's so cold now I needed something long sleeved and decided to go with a burgundy and an olive colour. I just love that the ribs are quite widely spaced and it sort of looks like jumper material but it's a lot thinner. There is just something about these tops that I adore and I can't put my finger on it! For £10 each I think they're a bargain.
And that's everything I picked up. Let me know your opinions on anything mentioned in the post - I love hearing them! I'm especially curious about what people are thinking of Zoella's products or if you want to try them?
Hope you have a great day<3
