Jewellery Haul :)

As I get into this blogging malarky, it will become apparent I have a slight obsession with buying jewellery. So I thought I'd do a little haul of the jewellery I purchased in the last few days.

First up..

Double finger 'Cross' ring. ASOS £8

I have wanted this ring foreverrrr! I was even tempted to try and order the ASOS men's version in a small size haha! Eventually I gave up looking for it, then one day I was reading LLYMLRS blog and she was saying how she found this on ASOS. Right away I ordered mine and I'm so glad I did.

Bronze ring £1, Butterfly ring 75p. Both Matalan sale ;)

I love the bronze ring so so much but it's stretchy and for some reason I absolutely cant stand the way it feels on my finger.. bummer :( I like how the pattern on the butterfly ring doesn't quite fit.. makes it more different than your average butterfly ring!

Silver Rose ring £15. Covent Garden

I instantly fell in love with this.. it's so delicate, perfect for when you don't want jewellery to overpower your outfit. And £15 for Sterling Silver.. what a bargain!

'Blondie' necklace £6, Pearl 'Peace' necklace £2. Both ASOS

Last but not least these two necklaces. The Blondie necklace is also another piece of jewellery I've wanted to add to my collection for a while. Being blonde myself I was a bit worried I might look a bit tacky wearing it but I love it too much to care :)
This pearl necklace was in the sale and I thought it was too cute to not buy! I love how different it is. The Peace sign has tiny little crystals on it.

ASOS is seriously dangerous to my bank balance since they introduced their free delivery but I'm thinking I should maybe put it to use for Christmas pressies ??

Grabbed any bargains lately?

MUA Review

So, I'm pretty slow on this MUA bandwagon (Superdrug's cheapo make up collection) but that's only cause the Superdrugs near me have only just got this range in!
Anyway, naturally I wanted to try out loads of their items but nothing really caught my eye :(
So I just ended up picking these two items up.

First up is the lippy in the ever imaginative 'shade 4'. Now my camera hasn't picked up the colour as I took the pictures at night. This would best be d
escribed as a neon Barbie pink.
I was instantly drawn to this shade. Although it looks as if the pigmentation would be amazing, it actually gives your lips more of a bright pink tint.

The coverage is very sheer, but I love it. It's very moisturising. I'm actually really impressed! The packaging doesn't look too cheap and the product is great for those low budget beauty buys :) And you can also unscrew the bottom to find more product there!

Next up is the lipgloss I picked up. I steer clear from glosses. I love lipsticks too much, but I thought for £1 I can't go wrong. You get 14mls of product in this squeezy tube which is double what most other glosses offer! This is 'shade 3'.

The lipgloss is slightly sticky, which I like, but also very moisturising. It gives a nice tint of nude to my lips with a slight shimmer.

All in all, I'm very impressed with what I have tried so far! I'm definitely going to try some more of their products!

What do you think of their range?? :)
