Shopping in London, My London Haul, the haul of hauls


Soo, I am still in London yayyy. Literally having the most incredible time and by no means do I want to come home, life is so much more productive and energised down here. I say 'down' because I am from 'up' North so London is South to me. Of course I have immature idiots trying to put me down, mocking me for being here, I didn't know people cared that much that it offends them that I post a Facebook status saying that I'm in London, oh well. People always have to be nasty, but it just motivates me more. Enough of me giving nasty people air space, basically, I finally got the chance to go shopping (I have been sooo busy) and this shopping trip was long over due. so I decided that I should show you what I've bought... as I pretty much blew my bank balance and found some exciting new things which I just need to share with you all! As you can see, the pile is huge so I will talk you through my faves from my FIRST of many hauls whilst i'm here.


Strictly speaking not all of these items were purchased in London, but they all have some sort of relevance to my trip. My Mum brought me these beautiful studded heels from home as they were in the post for me, it turns out that I got them free from the Nelly shoe event that I attended, I didn't actually want this pair, I put them as my third choice but I am so glad I got them, the detail is amazing and they genuinley are so gorgeous in real life, I can't explain! I don't think I will ever wear pink shoes but come to think of it, they'd probably go quite nicely with a plain black dress. The studded detail on them is gorgeous and very Jeffery Campbell. My Mum is still waiting for her pair though and we can't wait to see what she got. Thankya Nelly.com!


Of course, you can't go to London and miss out Abercrombie. In England, London is the only place that sells Abercrombie so I thought i'd buy myself a few things. I didn't buy myself as much as I usually would but they didn't have that much stuff in, so I just bought essentials. As you can see, I got a coral t-shirt which says' Sunset Harbour Boat Club - Fitch' I did want a logo'd vest top but they didn't have any. I just like this top because I think the colour is really cool. I also got the standard A&F sweat shorts and then some relaxed jogging bottoms/sweat pants, they're super comfy as they're tight at the top but loose at the bottom.


I of course went make up shopping, I went to Selfridges and bought some Mac Mineralize powder and then my usual Myth lipstick. I did need a new make up bag so I bought one from Victoria's Secret. I didn't even know that they did make up bags but this one is lovely, of course it's pink and it's shiny which is something I've been looking for in a make up bag as it means it won't get scruffy, I can just wipe it clean.I also got some 'PINK' body lotions from V.S, I just got them because I loved the packaging, i'm going to go back and buy some more as they do the same lotion in loads of different colours.


I also recently got a Xen-tan bronzer which I CANNOT wait to use. And also a style file, which came from the TV show 'The Apprentice', I will let you know how I get on with these products. On the photo you can also see my new face primer from Victoria's secret, it's meant to prime AND set your make up, very excited to try this out and review it for you all. 


Lastly, I got a Murad hybrid primer, I used this today for the first time and it is sooo good, I will of course be reviewing this as well. I have never used any Murad products but have heard rave reviews about them so was super excited to get this as well. I feel an addiction coming on.


Above you can kind of see a big Victoria's Secret tote bag on the right hand side, I got this for spending over a certain amount in that beautiful shop. I also raided Forever 21, I bought the below 'Tokyo Japan' cropped vest, a leopard print fitted jumper and a mesh leotard. That shop is so cheap, I can't understand why we don't have one anywhere else apart from London?! and why I have never heard of it before, Forever21 is pretty much H&M prices for Topshop style clothing.


You can also see a gorgeous blouse which I got from http://thevintageset.com/ I wore it to my placement yesterday, as you can see you could wear it with anything really. I went for the girlie look, I think it would have looked better tucked in though, but I can't wait to wear it with a tight pair of jeans, very versatile. The packaging was absolutely beautiful that it came in- even my Mum was like wow! It has the most beautiful pearly ribbon around a gorgeous packet, it just makes getting post that bit more special.


Also, you can see my London 2012 t-shirt from Samsung, which is signed personally by Mr David Beckham (OMG.) Also you can see kind of, my Victorias' Secret umbrella! It's amazing and bright pink!I also got this for spending far too much in that gorgeous shop, I blame the models who grace the walls, I seem to think I will magically look like them if I buy their underwear, well we can always dream can't we!

Speaking of Victoria's Secret, I purchased lots of sparkly underwear of course. I wont go into detail about how amazing the items are as if you've ever been to VS you will know! But basically they're all beautiful, sparkly and the colours are amazing. I don't even want to wear them, they're so delicate.


I also got some Xen-tan goodies as you can see in the bag, but i've chosen this picture to highlight the Samsung Galaxy S3 which I was lucky enough to be given by Samsung, it's absolutely incredible, I am sad to say goodbye to my iphone, but the Samsung is much more user friendly. Below the phone you can see a pair of Havianas, I have always wanted some of these and my gorgeous Brazilian friend Elize actually bought me a pair in London, I cannot wait to wear them on holiday, I got so excited when she gave me them!


I did purchase lots of bits and bobs in Oxford streets Topshop. I bought a black crop top, a grey body con maxi skirt, a floral detail vest top and I literally can't remember what else I got. Because I spent a certain amount of money, I got given a limited edition 'London' scarf, I cannot wait to wear this in winter, it's actually really thick and it folds in many ways, so I suppose I can wear it a number of ways.


I'm having an amazing time in London and I'm sure this is just one part of my haul, I can see that I will be posting a new haul every week whilst my London journey continues, the shops are just too good to resist. Hope you are all having a fabulous summer.

  14. Ahh what a haul! Hope you're having the best time, I have alot of family in London so I've spent alot of time there but I love it just as much as when I first visited! Its so tight on us that there isn't a Forever 21 up here isn't it, I discovered it in New York, you can order online though so every cloud has a silver lining! Are you blogging for Samsung for the paralympics too?

  48. Yayyyyy so glad u liked the Havaianas :)
    Hope u wear them A LOT, i wear them all the time hehe. Well, that's the default shoe for Brazilians anyways.

    I LOVE Forever21, used to buy lots of clothes there when i lived in the US. Can't u buy it online there? Once u figure out they're sizing, should be easy to get the clothes online. At least back in the US they'd send me fairly quickly and always included a return stamp in case i needed to return or exchange, which was rare since the sizing was always pretty accurate.

    miss u luv <3
