Holiday Haul: Sephora and H&M

Hiya lovelies!

I recently got back from my family holiday (travelling around France, north Italy, and Switzerland), and thought I'd show you what I purchased when I was in Turin! We didn't have that much time, which is why I only managed to go into two big stores and also, most of the little shops shut during the middle of the day so only the bigger stores were open.

I got some things from H&M, which I'm sure can be purchased in the UK, and a couple of bits from Sephora which can also be bought in the UK but from department stores as we don't have Sephora :( If we did, I'd be so broke though haha! I nearly died in Sephora, it was so pretty :)

Anywayyyy, on with the haul!


Benefit POREfessional Primer

After falling in LOVE with this product when I picked up a sample size in Glamour magazine a couple of months back, I had to have the full size. This stuff is AMAZING, I don't know how I ever lived without it! It instantly smooths out my skin and makes it look flawless and creates an excellent base for foundation. It also leaves my skin feeling so soft and improves the staying power of my foundation. It's honestly worth the money!

Lily by Stella McCartney, Eau de Parfum

I have been looking for a new fragrance for a while as the one I currently have for 'everyday/light' use is nearly finished. I originally had my eye on Miss Dior Cherie however, I couldn't find it anywhere? I found the normal Miss Dior but it doesn't smell the same at all :/ anyway as soon as I smelt this one, I knew I had to have it. Its the perfect light fragrance, that could be worn everyday or on special occasions. I'm so rubbish at describing fragrances so if you get the chance, smell this! It's not overpowering at all and I love it :)

Essie 'Cute As A Button' Nail Lacquer

This is a product I've had my eye on for a while, and I'm so glad I bought it! Even though it's pricey compared to other drug-store nail polishes, I think its worth it as the formula is flawless and the colour is absolutely perfect. I would definitely buy more Essie nail polishes :)


Isn't this adorable? It just a simple little vest top, made with lightweight comfy material that's just perfect for comfy wear or could be dressed up. And it wasn't expensive wooo :)

I love this! I wore this and the vest top above in my previous FOTN and I love them together :) This is such a pretty lacy pattern and can smarten up simple vest tops for nights out or be worn casually!

I love the collar on this blouse! This is lovely worn open or closed with a black vest top underneath and like the other clothing items, can be worn casually or made smarter in the evening :)

Another vest top - similar to the other one haha but I still love it, it's really easy to wear and it fits perfectly and has lovely lightweight material :) a wardrobe must have really!

That's it! What have you guys been buying recently?

Thanks for reading!
