Mini Cardiff Haul: Summer 2015

Hello all! It's been a while!

Tim and I took a trip up to my new flat in Cardiff a couple of weeks ago and obviously I couldn't have gone without diverting into the city centre for a spot of shopping! I didn't pick up too much but I thought I'd show you guys the few bits I did get because there were some very exciting things (in my opinion anyway).

Let's start with the (potentially) least exciting of the bunch - my new duvet set! I've had my eye on this beaut set for a while, ever since I saw it in Primark's Tottenham Court Road store. When I got to Cardiff I realised I had no duvet cover for my bed with me so perfect opportunity to pick up a new one! It only set me back about £10 and I absolutely love the print and colours. I also love that it's totally reversible for if I fancy a change of bedroom scenery with very little effort put in!

I felt slightly pressured into buying this next item (LOL pushover!) but I'm actually so glad I bought it. Cardiff has a new Models Own pop-up store in St David's shopping centre so I decided to have a bit of a nosey. One of the staff members came up to me immediately and was talking me through all the new products and said that I would get a free gift for just having a chat. Now I'm not one to turn down a freebie (especially a make-up related one!) so I went along with it but DEFINITELY felt the need to buy something else with it! I picked up a nail polish in the shade Colour Chrome Indigo for £5 and I'm so in love with this metallic colour. I'm a little disappointed at it's lasting power but I'm determined to find a top coat that'll prolong it! Any suggestions, please do let me know! The freebie, in case you were wondering, was a 4-in-1 nail file with a nail buffer/shine etc.

I had part of a gift voucher left from Christmas for New Look so I dragged Tim in for a look around the sale items. I found these gorgeous high-waisted shorts for £9, so I picked them up despite them being a size smaller than I would usually go for (although they actually fit pretty perfectly - for now!)

The last item was a bit of  a naughty purchase, but it's something I've had my eye on for a while. I've heard so many things about the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess fragrance and as soon as I smelt it I was in love. Nothing like your usual floral/fruity fragrances, this perfume is a holiday in a bottle. I was going to ask for this for my birthday (6th September if you were wondering), as it usually retails at just under £50, but The Fragrance Shop had 21% off and so I just couldn't resist! And look how beautiful the bottle is!

And that's all for this haul! Here are some cute photos to wrap up this post from our few days away <3
