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.
