A little bargain haul

Last weekend I went to the city, Birmingham, while we were staying in the West Midlands. Needless to say it was difficult impossible to leave empty handed. Here are a few things I picked
up, something from the new NYX stand in Boots and bits and pieces from the Accessorize sale.
Does anyone else think the name 'Soft Lip Cream' sounds so delicious, just like a dessert? The fact that NYX's most popular matte lip also smells like vanilla buttercream also makes me believe it actually is. Not at all sickly, it completely smells like pudding or ice cream.
The fact that it's long lasting, highly pigmented and not at all patchy makes it a contender for Too Faced Melted Chocolate lip range for me! At only £5.50 each, they're also at a fraction of the price, it's amazing. I feel as if I am using a high end product! After much swatching and dithering I came away with the shade 'Tokyo', a safe bet as a pink looking nude. 
It's more a 'Barbie pink' shade than a nude which is a little different to what I'd choose normally. However, I have completely fallen for it! It's the only one of its kind in my collection and I find myself reaching for it 24/7, the shade is really beautiful, a sunny, summery kind of pink.
Aghh these plates are so adorable! Adorned with gold lettering and a lovely floral design, they come in different colours and spell out 'eat', perfect for a summer picnic, using for food arrangements or as photo props. The scalloped edges are my favourite.
This letter charm from Accessorize is so pretty at around £2! I love the see through design with the hearts inside. It makes my keys look beautiful and I was so excited to find my initial.
I've talked about the Moon Pie bites before and I can't go past the American candy shop without heading in for some of these, it's completely ridiculous. They taste like real cinnamon cake. I'm crazy for anything cinnamon but can never decide between these or the red velvet ones!
Finally, these earrings were only £2 in the half price sale! I love the little butterflies, flowers and sparkly beads and they are the prettiest rose gold shade. I'm definitely gonna collect more of the Soft Matte Lip Creams! Have you picked up anything in the summer sales? 
I'm a little behind on replies but can't wait to catch up this week - thank you!!

  1. This is my first time seeing shade Tokyo, I think it really describes the city very well.
    I picked lots of clothing items from summer sales, lucky enough to got the piece that I've been eyeing since last March ;)
