Random Haul | Beauty, Shoes & Books


Just a mini random haul of some new purchases I have made. I always love reading haul posts, perhaps because i'm a bit of a snoop? I just find it interesting seeing what people have purchased haha. 

Here are some of the new things I've purchased..
Stila Stay-All-Day Liquid Lipstick in "Mecca". 

Stila brought out this exclusive shade to Mecca Maxima to celebrate the store turning 20. I saw it online and had a feeling it would be a shade right up my street and I was correct! It's a lovely subtle pink. In the photo above I had been wearing it for 3 hours and had just eaten greasy bacon..and it stayed on really well considering with only a little bit fading in the centre. This is limited edition so if you're Australian try and get your hands on it before it goes.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush body buttercream

The Sugar Crush scent is one of absolute favourite scents ever. It's a mix of smelling like brown sugar and lime. It smells so good I just want to eat it, and then I have to remind myself it probably wouldn't taste good at all.

Sandals from Kmart

Another one for the Australians to get your hands on. These sandals are SUCH a bargain at only $6 a pair! I purchased a brown windsor smith pair a few years back for $40 (I got them half price because I worked at a clothing store so originally they were $80) and although they were good..these are the exact same. I can barely tell the difference between them. These are great and so affordable.

MOR Marshmallow Perfume Oil Rollerball

This scent is the nicest thing ever: it smells like musk sticks!! This was only $20 and I purchased it because it not only smells divine but it's an easy thing to throw into my hand bag when i'm going out for a long day and want to freshen up by adding a bit more perfume on. 


I went shoppng with my brother as he wanted to buy some books and in the end I was the one who ended up buying some while he came out empty handed. I want to get back into reading so I thought it would be a good idea to buy ones that look like an easy read. 

They're both teen fiction. And guys..I gotta admit..i'm a TOTAL sucker for teen fiction books. Yes, they're almost always incredibly cheesy and cringe but there's just something so relaxing about them? Like I said - guilty pleasures - and I probably won't admit to anyone in real life how much I love them haha. 

All the bright places by Jennifer Niven: I've wanted to read this book for awhile as it's gotten many great reviews and Zoella mentioned it in a video once. 

"Theodore Finch wants to take his own life. I'm broken, and no one can fix it.
Violet Markey is devastated by her sister's death. In that instant we went plowing through the guardrail, my words died too.They meet on the ledge of the school bell tower, and so their story begins.It's only together they can be themselves . . .I send a message to Violet: 'You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.'You're so weird, Finch. But that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.But, as Violet's world grows, Finch's begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?"

Unrequited by Emma Grey: I haven't actually heard about this book before but I read the back and it grabbed me. It sounds suuuper cheesy and cliche..but I can't wait to read it haha.

"Seventeen-year-old Kat Hartland loathes Unrequited, theworld's biggest boy band.She's 100 per cent immune to 'perfect' singer AngusMarsden and his unfailingly predictable lyrics. Show her the anti-fan club ... she wants to be itspresident!
Just give her a proper musician. Or maybe the seriouslyhot med student who rescued her on the train. Ideal formal partner, right? Ideal everything ...
But when Kat comes face to face with Angus Marsdenhimself, things start to get complicated. Throw in a deranged female singer, an enraged fandom,final exams, a part in a musical and a mum who just doesn't get it."

 What new things have you purchased recently? Oh and someone be nice and tell me i'm not the only one with a guilty pleasure of teen fiction novels haha.
