Haul Post #3 I got lost in Primark

Hello everyone! 🙂 On this surprisingly bright & sunny day here in Ireland my Mom and I decided to go to town for what was supposed to be a few things……which was working out quite okay for us…until we reached Penneys (Primark in the UK). I’m sure many of you guys can understand the terror that my wallet faced next! Here’s some pictures that will do the explaining 😀

The tracksuit bottoms were on sale at €5 down from €12 which I was quite happy with, even if they are just for wearing around the house & I got simple, long sleeved crop tops (the blue & khaki green ones above) which would be perfect with some of my skirts or some high waisted jeans. At €5 each they are a perfect dupe for a different colour top rather similar that I bought in New Look for nearly €20!

*Sigh* I am always a sucker for Harry Potter clothing….damn you Penneys! Today was no different when I spotted this t-shirt (look below ^.^).

In the homeware section I picked up this little set of copper wire fairy lights for €3 and this candle for €4 which can be used as a mug once it’s all gone.

I also picked up a few little bits in Dealz & a euro store, my favourites being this colouring book and the BB-8 mug, because who doesn’t love BB-8!

Overall I have to say that my favourite buy today was these 2 books I picked up in a charity shop in Wexford. I love Cecelia Ahern and have a few of her books already so when I spotted these through the window I just had to go in and grab them and turns out they were only €1 each!!

So I guess you can say we picked up a little more than just a few things today…oops! Ah sure, it happens to the best of us! Thank you for reading 🙂

Urban Decay’s Naked Palettes

*Cue my first beauty post*

So unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you should be aware that what has become a staple in many make up collections are Urban Decay’s Naked Palettes. Each in the original collection (Naked, Naked 2 & Naked 3) boast a sleek portable case design, a double ended brush (that is actually pretty great compared to the brushes you get in some palettes) and a selection of 12 different shades that compliment each other perfectly. It is easy to see that there is a palette that will suit pretty much anyone from make up enthusiasts, to teenagers trying out make up for the first time! Priced at around €46/£37 it is definitely a make up investment heading towards the more pricey side of things, especially for us college students who are struggling to budget (I know I am!) but I can confidently say that they are so worth the money!

Of the two I own (Naked 2 & 3), I have to say that my favorite which I received as a present for my 18th birthday from my best friend is….

For anyone unfamiliar with this palette here’s a few pictures I took quickly of the eye shadows included. My personal favourites from this fabulous palette are “Suspect” and “Snakebite” which go great together and add a subtle sparkle and shimmer to my everyday make up.

Overall, I believe that investing in an Urban Decay Naked Palette will be one of the best things you ever do in your life (slight exaggeration maybe perhaps) if you’re interested in make up and beauty. I bought my Naked 3 2 years ago and used it nearly every day up until I got my Naked 2 a few months ago and I’ve only hit the pan in the lightest shade that I normally used as a base. What I’m trying to say is, if you are looking for a great eye shadow palette that is worth the money and will last a long time then look no further! Make your choice. I have my eye on the new Gwen Stefani palette at the moment (Santaaaa plsss)

Have you got a favourite Naked palette? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading.
