An instagram haul

OMG, I have not blogged since December! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a few things I have bought over the past few months. The pictures are from my Instagram. I actually like this display more than how blogger displays import photos so will be using this more.

For my Birthday in May, my mother and I went on our annual mother and daughter holiday and this year I decided to go to Russia. It was such a beautiful country. The palaces in Saint Petersburg! Oh my goodness, I loved it. We did a River Cruise so from Saint Petersburg to Moscow with stops at a few small villages. I loved it. Anyway since I was there, I thought for my birthday I would treat myself to a bag I had wanted for ages, the Lady Dior bag. I love this bag so much, it oozes class and it an elegant, classic piece. It’s in lambskins so I have to be very careful with it but it’s such a beauty. I didn’t get the patent leather though as I found it’s too difficult to open the bag (also heard a lot from reviews not to get it in patent).

I love this Gucci purse; I’ve never seen it in this colour before.

I really want a Chanel Boy bag but until I can get on in Caviar I am going to wait. I saw this Gucci bag and I fell in love with it. I also love you can wear it either cross body or on the shoulder as the chain straps double up. It's beautiful.

I had wanted a pair of Valentino Rockstuds for so long! In the end I caved in and bought these. I thought they looked lovely in this nude colour - although I really want the black and nude ones as well.

Also bought myself the classic Burberry Scarf as I had wanted one for ages. I love this Tom Ford perfume but it’s so expensive, hence why I bought it at duty free, same with Chanel No 5 (original).

I am loving Huda Beauty right now, I bought these lip contours in July and then once they launched I bought the liquid lip matte. They are amazing. I bought, Trendsetter, Trophy Wife, Icon and Famous.

Keeping with makeup I have bought 2 new foundations (not at the same time) The Lancome Cushion foundation which is amazing! I love this and it's so different.

This Chanel foundation is beautiful! I tried it today and bought it immediately, it comes with the brush and it blends so easily. Feels like nothing is on and the coverage it gives is perfection. It's so expensive though! That's because it's the brush and the foundation but I loved it so much I bought it.

I finally managed to get my hands on Prosecco Pop / Amaretto by Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill. I love this highlighter.

Heard a lot about this highlighter from Laura Geller in Gilded Honey. So as there was sale in Debenhams, I bought it. It's beautiful but I do love the Becca one more.

We can finally get Marc Jacobs beauty in the UK. YAY. I thought this blush was lovely. It looks really pretty on the cheeks.

When Estee Lauder announced their Victoria Beckham collab, I was so excited! When I saw the collection though, I wasn't as it wasn't anything special in my opinion. I did by the illuminating cream though as I did like it. The packaging is beautiful and so chic.

I love Chanel No 5 but I can only wear it in the evening as it's such a strong scent so when Chanel released the L'EAU version, I thought I would try it. I love it. I can still smell the No 5 in there but its a much more softer version, however it is still very strong. You only need one or 2 sprays and that is it.

I had wanted an Apple watch ever since they launched but when I was finally going to buy one they announced Series 2, so I waited and  am so happy that I did! I can get Minnie or Mickey on it! I love it. It's so expensive but I wear it everyday and I love the rose gold (well pink) colour.

So that is a few of the things I have bought over the past few months. My favourite things have to be my Dior Bag and Apple Watch.  Also my Gucci bag and the Chanel foundation.

Luxury haul ft Chanel, Christian Louboutin and Tiffany & Co

I have been very lucky of the past few months to buy some lovely luxury designer items and so I thought I would do a post of what I have bought.


Chanel Mini navy blue wallet bag with small purse



I really wanted the Chanel WOC and so when my mum and I went to Florence on our cruise holiday I decided to go into the Chanel store and see if they had it. They did and so the lady showed me the WOC and this one. Now I personally thought I would go for the WOC, as it was black with gold hardware and this one was in navy blue. I fell in love with this one. It's in patent calf leather, navy blue in colour and with silver hardware. It is beautiful. It also comes with a small purse inside. I don't actually know the name of this one and I did try to search for it. Anyway, it has a small chain and a zip compartment inside. It can fit quite a bit in! Also it is very resilient and doesn't scratch easily. I am very ashamed though that this is my fourth Chanel bag. I remember when my dream was to own 1!
















Christian Louboutin Simple pump 85 patent calf





I have always wanted a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes but since I had wide horrible feet I never even bothered to go and try some on. Anyway, I have lost a bit of weight and my feet have shrunk a bit so I thought since I can buy them in Selfridges I would buy some. They fit!! I am so happy. These are a lovely pair of pumps; I got them in the smaller heel size as the 100 is way too high for me. They are just beautiful and I love them so much. Even though I know, people wear these for work I am sticking to special occasions only. I can also see myself in the not too distant future buying the nude ones as well. 






















Tiffany & Co sunglasses





These are so chic. I love the cat eye shape and how the frame is not so big in size. I love the colours as well; the blue and black go so well together. The pearls and crystals on the side give the sunglasses a classic look, I think.
