#134 - mini haul

 Just a couple of little bits I picked up whilst exchanging some jeggings in Primark - has anyone else noticed that their jeggings sizes are really odd as of late? I picked up a size 8 in black and a size 6 in blue, the size 6 were bigger than the 8! It might just be my Primark with a dodgy batch, but it really annoyed me. Thankfully managed to swap both pairs for a size 10, so my legs are no longer being strangled.

(also apologies if the photos look a tad overexposed, I tried to fix it in PS but had no such luck)

I ran out of my current foundation (Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr) and saw this as the perfect opportunity to try out the new Bourjois one. Boots currently have it on offer for just £6.99 so it's a steal. I have only tried it out this morning, but I really like it. It covers all red marks, the coverage is about medium but buildable, smells lovely and the colour is perfect for me, which with only five or six shades to choose from, is something I was a little weary about.

I have actually finished my first bottle of Catwalk Couture as I've worn it non-stop the last few months; as it's Fast Finish it is really quick drying, only needing one coat for it to be opaque.

I got Pink Lemonade purely because I thuoght I would be a cute pastel shade for the Summer.
I picked up a floral/Hawaiian top for just £6 as I needed another top to wear in work, this is perfect.
I saw these dresses on Emily's blog, and knew I had to get at least one. so I got two... to be honest I would have gotten three if my local Primark had had the blue one in stock, maybe next time, at £6 a pop I can afford to look slightly mental buying the same dress three times :P
They do come up a little short though, so I may go back and swap them for a size 10 if it is longer at all. Don't really fancy unkowingly flashing people in the Summer.
I spotted the spotty number (I'm so hilarious) as soon as I minced into the shop, it's my ideal Summer dress - spotty, no sleeves, mid-thigh length and the material's very light and stretchy - all for a tenner, I could not and did not want to put it back down. Jack also really likes it which is always a Brucey bonus!

I'm currently sat in my comfy pants, with a cuppa, attempting to stream a half-decent copy of The Hunger Games before I have my tea. I did go and see it the other week with Hope, it was bloody brilliant and certain scenes were exactly like I imagined when reading the book. Cannot wait for the second one to be released next year.
