Shopping in Cardiff.. AGAIN!

I think I have an addiction to shopping. Lately I have been doing a lot more shopping than usual! Maybe it's because I have a job and am now earn money, or maybe its because there a loads of things I just MUST have - my bank balance doesn't seem to like this though. Nevertheless I have found some lovely new things.

I had heard so many great reviews about the Lee Stafford Hair Growth range, and after Umming and Ahhing for a while I decided the first product I would try from the range was the 'Treatment for Hair that never grows past a certain length'. 

Next I picked up the Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo for greasy hair. I have been trying many different shampoo's for greasy hair recently, and though i'd give this one a whirl.

Whilst looking at all the stands in boots, I noticed Bumble and Bumble. I have never tried anything from this brand, and while speaking to the lady about the condition of my hair, she suggested I tried a sample of the thickening shampoo and conditioner

An essential purchase of mine every 1-2 months is root touch-up. I love this is one as it's the perfect colour for my hair at the moment.

As soon as I heard Real Techniques were launching this little baby, I just knew I had to get it. 
I had been lusting for the original beauty blender for ages, but just couldn't justify the price. Although I had heard about dupes I never got round to buying one. 

After going to a MAC counter for the first time and picking up the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation, I knew it was love. The only problem was gradually the shade got too dark for me as I lost my tan. So whilst browsing the other products I picked it up in a lighter shade. 

I also purchased two new MAC eyeshadows for my palette. The shades I got were Folie and Cranberry. Folie is a satin finish and Cranberry is a frost finish. 

Finally I brought a pair of boots. The boots I did have were black lace ups and were falling to pieces. If it rained while wearing them, my feet would get soaked. 
I brought these gorgeous brown buckled boots from new look, and they are so comfy. The fur edge is so soft and the boots really keep my feet warm. 

Hope you enjoyed reading this post :)
Let me know in the comments what you have been purchasing recently and whether you have found any favourites.

  1. I bought the beauty blender as a present for my friend, I wish I'd picked one up for myself too!

  2. Oh I love that foundation from MAC. One of my all time favs! It breaks me out if I wear it everyday but boy do I love it for nights out, etc. It's magical!

    Please write a review of the real techniques sponge. I'm on the fence with them...some of their brushes I love and some I loathe. So I'm curious about your thoughts <3



Thank you for the lovely comments! I read and am grateful for every single one of them ❤
