AUGUST HAUL-zara, missguided, urban decay etc.

First things first, sorry for the little break but I’ve been stuck in bed with tonsillitis so decided to have a break with blogging but I’m back with a pretty big haul. I did quite a bit of spending last month and thought I’d share some of my buys. So read on!

So if you follow me on social media or have read my recent posts you may know that I work at Zara which I love; it’s amazing finally having a job surrounded by fashion and of course the benefits are quite handy and dangerous

zara-boots
I saw these boots and had to have them, my winter boots are rather worn and need a replacement and I think I’ve found them. They’re chunky yet still feminine, have a perfect size heel so they’re stylish yet comfy and are a gorgeous maroon colour which fit in with Autumn colours.zara-chokers

Chokers are definitely on trend and it’s a trend I love. They go with everything and add a cool touch to outfits. These are lovely to go with a night out outfit, whether worn alone or together.zara-flower-top

This top caught my eye with the gorgeous floral design, the colours are definitely fall appropriate and the fabric is gorgeous. The lace around the edge adds a feminine touch and it hangs on the body really well.zara-jeans

I love Zara jeans and these mom style ones are a must have. The colour makes them kind of retro and authentic, and the fit is always so flattering. Mom jeans are an essential for my wardrobe and I know I’m going to wear these to death.

zara-perfumes

Zara perfumes are all so gorgeous and so affordable, there’s a wide range of scents but I picked up a couple of my favourites [red vanilla and femme] and they’re perfect for work or everyday use instead of expensive perfumes.

zara-trousers

These trousers probably look more like pyjamas than actual clothes but I love them! They’re definitely as comfortable as pyjamas and they surprisingly go with quite alot.

culottes

Everyone needs some culottes in their life and these are a winner. Simple and basic but still stylish, easy to wear and super comfortable, love them! (not the best photo, sorry!)

protein-with-fontI decided to place a My Protein order and picked up some tasty stuff. The soy protein is my go to protein powder so I picked up the chocolate version; these raw cacao nibs are great for adding to breakfasts, desserts or any food creations being healthier than normal chocolate chips. Chia seeds have many nutritional benefits and I tend to add them to a lot of meals; I really want to try making Chia pudding at some point. I also bought this masssssssive tub of peanut butter which you can’t go wrong with!missguided-with-font

I am a huge fan of Carli Bybel and when I saw she was making a collection with Missguided I was really interested however I missed the first launch therefore made sure I picked up a couple of things on the second launch, I also picked up a couple of other things.

I love embroidered items so this crop top was a must have for me, I love the daring neck line and the fit is so comfortable. I definitely suggest sizing up as it is small fitting. The colours are beautiful and the quality is amazing. It is a two piece with matching trousers however they weren’t really ‘me’ so I just went for the top, I can’t wait to wear it on a night out.

My other Carli Bybel piece was this gorgeous nude dress, the bodycon cut fits perfectly and is so flattering, with sexy cut outs and amazing embroidered detail on the shoulders and side. This piece is stunning and makes you feel amazing in it. (Well done Carli!)missguided-jumper

I am such a sucker for jumpers or sweatshirts and this one is such a classic comfy sweatshirt to throw on with a cool front design.

missguided-bomber

Embroidered bombers are a trend I adore; bombers in general are my weakness and this one I thought was so beautiful and cool.

concealer-lip

I’ve used the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer for a while now and wanted to try out a different one, I’ve heard so many things about the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer so wanted to try it. I’m sure I’ll feature it in a post or a review soon! I have also wanted to try Too Faced for aaaaages and I’m definitely going to be buying more of this brand, for now I picked up one of the Melted Matte Lipsticks in Sell Out and so far so good!

hm-fitness-with-font

Finally I popped into H&M randomly after work one day and decided to try out their sport/fitness range. I always wear leggings to the gym so got some simple cropped ones that fit really well, I also chose these long ones with grey paneling and gold accents, these are gorgeous and really flattering. I picked up this simple black t shirt that fits lovely and this over-sized turquoise vest. Overall really impressed with their fitness range.
