Primark beauty

Most of you know by now that Primark has it’s own range of beauty products. And while I was in London I picked up a few pieces to try. Especially because I had read that they were good.

Among other things I got this 8 HOUR DEEP HYDRATING CREAM with argan oil. And let me tell you, it’s really good. Or should I say, was really good because I’ve run out of it. In the winter time I get dry patches, especially my cheeks and putting this cream on before going to bed every night has really helped. I usually use a Nivea face cream that I love but this Primark one, considering the price, was pretty good too.

I know people always say if the price is high the quality is better and I just want to point out that that isn’t always the case.

Do you have any budget tips? What is something I need to try?

 

Wearing dresses!

Those of you that know me know I don’t wear dresses a lot. Well, at least I didn’t before. This last year I’ve been wearing dresses and skirts more and more. And I actually feel comfortable in them whereas before I didn’t. I hated going to weddings because that required me to wear a dress. And now, I’m already looking for a dress to wear to my best friends wedding next wear. I know the color and the style I want.

Here are two outfits I wore in the last few weeks.

This leopard dress is from H&M, I got it just a few weeks ago. You might still find it in your local store although I didn’t find it online.

Here I’m wearing a New Look dress that you can find in the sale HERE . It’s only 7,20 Euros, a total bargain! With it I’m wearing Zizzi tights and Primark wedge boots.

New Look has an amazing SALE going on overall, you have to check it out!

Happy shopping ladies (and gents)!

I freaking love spring!

Work mode is in full effect. I have so many exciting things going on, I leave work just to go home and work some more. The sunshine we’ve been having these last few weeks is doing wonders for me and my creativity. As soon as I can tell you about the things I’ve been working on, you know I will.

Later today I have a meeting and after that I’m meeting up with some friends for a drink. Therefore I incorporated my going out outfit with my work outfit.

Tweed Liberty Tote

When I was in London in February I saw a girl in Primark with a bag I fell in love with. She literally walked past me and when I saw the bag I followed her upstairs to she shoe and bag section. I waited for the opportunity to present itself for me to ask her without me coming off as a stalker and a weirdo. She was super sweet about and told me it was a Victoria Beckham bag. Ever since then I’ve been looking for it but I can’t find it, it’s sold out everywhere.

I’m talking about the Tweed Liberty Tote

LOTD: London/Lillipop

While I was in London I picked up a Primark lipstick. I heard they were good and had to try it for myself. And at only £1.50, you can’t really go wrong. Yes, like any other lipstick out there you do have to re-apply throughout the day but other than it’s a great one. This is the matte long-lasting formula and it is exactly that. For me it lasts a long time and is matte. And what’s even better is that it’s not drying on me, at all.

The shade I’m wearing is Lollipop and it comes in three more shades. I only picked up the two different pink shades. There is also a red one as well as a nude. But, because I don’t really wear red lipstick and I already have a nude I’m happy with I didn’t pick up those. A decisions I’m regretting right now…

About last week…

If you follow my blog you’ve read about a surprise trip I was given for my birthday. I only found out where I was going when I got to the airport early Thursday morning of last week. And just as I had guessed and hoped for, it was London.

I was going with my sister and one of my best friends lives there, so I know it was gonna be a great trip. What I didn’t know was that one of my other best friends would show up too. Actually I guessed someone else I knew was coming but I couldn’t ever guess it was Dina. Not that she wouldn’t do this for me but because it was Valentines Day weekend, and she made me believer she was spending it with her boyfriend. He even was in on it, texting me about restaurant ideas for V-day.

ASOS Sale

For me shopping in a sale means I really don’t need the item but I get it because it’s cute and at a good price. That’s how I justify shopping anyway. But if there is an item I really need I’ll get it then and there, the price doesn’t really matter. And as I am a shop-a-holic I must have a method where I don’t spend all my money. For me it is the number seven. If I’m shopping in a sale I don’t get more than seven things. At Primark, I don’t get more than seven bags, etc.

Here are the seven items I’m loving from the ASOS Sale at the moment.
