Recent Purchases

 The Body Shop Hair Chalks- £5 each
 Primark Bag- £8
Dorothy Perkins shoes- £7

I went shopping, what else is new? 
My sister, Molly, has some really good things to say about the Max Factor foundation with the unnecessarily long name so I wanted to try it out for myself. I got it in the lightest colour which is a pretty decent shade for me but I feel like it might go a bit dark if it's built up too much.
I also nipped into The Body Shop to get the new 'serum-in-oil' whatever that means. It takes me a really long time to tell if a skincare product works for me but nothing disastrous has happened to my skin yet.
I know I was supposed to be waiting for the Anastasia Brow Pomade but I had an eyebrow related mental breakdown and ordered this in a 'I can't survive one more day with these on my forehead' moment. I got it in the shade Brunette which is perfect for my hair colour. I breathed a sigh of relief as soon as I had my hands on this, they look so much more natural now and it's really easy to use. I'm still going to get the Brow Pomade though. Will I ever be satisfied??
The Body Shop hair chalks. Yep. I officially want to dye my hair now. Never having used hair chalks before I don't even know how good they are but I like the subtlety of the colour it leaves when you've brushed out the excess chalk. Little warning though- don't wear a white top when you've got it in your hair. Oops. 
I popped in to Primark recently as well and bought this monochrome bag to match everything else in my wardrobe. I like the vertical zip and the contrast of the black and white. 
Lastly I bought these shoes for £7 in the Dorothy Perkins sale which is crazy. They're kind of the white version of every pair of shoes I own. I'm hoping that in summer these will convince me to peel off my beloved tights and bare my legs. 
Thanks so much for reading!
Lots of love,
