Lush boxing day haul

I've got to say, Lush done pretty well in their 50% off sale this year I mean I got four bath bombs for around £6! I never really go out on Boxing Day mainly because living in London means that all public transport is packed with other eager shoppers but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Bakerloo line was empty. The Lush store on Oxford street was also quite empty, possibly because I was there early. The majority of the store was filled with the Christmas range which was all half price meaning I had so much choice, I didn't want to buy an extortionate amount because I've done that one too many times (teehee) so I stuck to ones I knew I'd use.

Cinders bath bomb, £1.48:
I think this smells of caramel ,which I is weirdly comforting, despite the fact the website states otherwise and says it's cinnamon and almond oil. Doesn't the name Cinders remind you of Cinderella?

Dashing santa bath bomb, £1.48:
The name of this bath bomb is quite fitting to what Santa does- one night a year. This has quite a fresh scent and from what I can see online, leaves the bath water a very bright orange so this seems fun.

Peeping santa bubble bar, £1.98:
I've only ever tried one bubble bar and that's The Comforter (which smells just like ribena) Seeing as this was half price, smells like strawberries and has cocoa butter in it I had to get it.

Shoot for the stars bath bomb, £1.83:
This bath bomb reminds me of the Intergalactic I bought and used a few months ago, and judging from the description on the website I think it does the same thing too. Anyway, it looks super colourful so I look forward to using this.

Did you buy anything from the Lush sales?

Boxing Day haul

Hey dolls, I'm sorry this is a bit late by this is my long awaited Boxing Day haul, I ordered my ZARA clothing online and went to later went Victoria street and ended up buying some things from Topshop, Accesorize and Boots. 

1. The jeans are from the ZARA Trafaluc collection and they're such good quality and are extremely comfy as well! I like the rips on them and the fit too. Price~£17.99

2. From Topshop I bought a cropped lilac knit sweater which I think would look really nice with my Joni jeans which are also from Topshop. It's a good thickness for the upcoming winter months. Price~£12 

3. I also bought this big navy jumper from Zara which I wasn't planning on getting but I'm happy I did as this is so comfy and big,I love it! I can either wear it alone or with a blouse with the collar peeking over. Price~ £15.99 

4. From Accesorize I bought this tartan hair bow; I think it looks really nice to spice up a bun or when I wear my hair half up and half down. The pattern and colours in it are also quite suitable for the winter. Price~£2.50

5. Next up is a Soap and Glory 'Think Pamper' set which I got for £9, Which is a great bargain. In this you get the heel genius, glad hair day, clean on me, hand food, the righteous butter and the scrub of your life. You also get a large cosmetic bag and a body puff. I've never tried S&G so I'm excited to use these and might do some reviews on the products later.

That's all I have for my Boxing Day haul, I didn't buy much as I don't really need that many things to be honest and I'm trying to save up my money! 
Thanks for reading, Dalal x 

December favourites

I feel as if I'm the only person who doesn't get overly excited about December, probably because I don't celebrate the festivities that come with it- nevertheless I managed to rack up a couple favourites this month.

Nars creamy concealer:
The name says it all, a super creamy and easy to blend concealer that works amazingly well at covering dark circles and redness.

Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge:
I bought this off Amazon a few weeks ago and haven't stopped using it soon, it's a really useful tool to have- I find the pointed side is great at blending more hard-to-reach areas.

Clinique clarifying lotion:
When I first started using this I hated it as it'd sting my skin and leave it soooo irritated but I decided to use it more frequently and it's started growing on me. It gently exfoliates and smooths your skin so it's ideal to use before moisturiser.

New Balance 373:
I've been needing a pair of trainers I could wear everyday as it's too cold to wear my very loved Vans, so on Black Friday I found these on Surfdome for £50, used an extra 10% code and got them for £45! They're extremely versatile and super comfy, I've worn them lots already.

What are your December favourites?

Can someone give feedback on this photo? I've taken it with my iPhone and I'm unsure of the quality

Grey Days

Merry Christmas. I've had an ongoing argument with myself, deliberating on how I should spell 'grey'. Recently I've started to gravitate towards grey clothing as opposed to my usual blacks and navy's, I was looking through the Shein website so many items caught my eye as well as Zara- but that's nothing new. I definitely know what I'll be buying on boxing day!

What colour have you been wearing lots of lately?
