Mini Haul and First Impressions

Since it’s the half term I have been shopping quite a lot recently , online and in store , I thought I would share with you some of the things I bought . It is sort of a first impressions aswell , so if you’d like to see more of these sort of posts , let me know!

  •  Forever 21 Button Boxy Jacket , Olive – £16


Ever since I went to America and visited Forever 21 , it has always been my favourite clothes shop. Unfortunately since the nearest store to me is over 2 hours away , I thought that I would have a look on the website. I picked up this jacket in the size small and it fits me perfectly. It’s really comfortable and will go with absolutely everything. It’s all I’ve been wearing since I got it!

  • Nyx Single Eyeshadows in Girl Talk and Lol – £2.50 & £3.50


As all of you who read my blog know , I am absolutely obsessed with Nyx! I absolutely adore their eyeshadows and when I saw that you could create your own palette , I was so excited! I chose the shades Girl Talk and Lol ; Girl Talk is a perfect iridescent white highlight shade with pink reflects in and Lol is such an interesting shade . It’s a matte burnt orange and it looks absolutely gorgeous in the crease . They all blend really easily and for £2.50 you can’t go wrong. When I have built the whole of my palette I will do a post reviewing them and showing you what colours I chose.

  • Nyx MicroBrow Pencil in Expresso – £8

This has to be my favourite ever brow product , it’s so creamy , blendable and really precise. This is my second one as I use it every single day on my brows , because it is so affordable and it doesn’t dry out easily like a pomade. The shade range for this is incredible for brown haired people but there isn’t many lighter shades which is a bit of disappointment. However it is still one of my holy grail makeup products , I’d definitely recommend .

  • Hotel Chocolat Billionaire’s Shortbread – £3.85


I didn’t know whether to include this or not but as it is nearly Easter , you can’t really do a haul without any chocolate in ! I had a voucher to get one chocolate selector for £2 instead of £3.85 so obviously I couldn’t resist! I chose the billionaires chocolate and it’s extremely delicious and just looks gorgeous! Have you tried anything from Hotel Chocolat? If you have , which is your favourite ?

  • Primark White Embroided Bardot Off The Shoulder Top – £10


For absolutely ages , I’ve been looking for an off the shoulder white top that actually fitted me nicely. The problem with me is that I have really small shoulders , like so small , practically all off the shoulder tops just fall off completely. Is it just me who has that problem? It’s really irritating! But finally I found one that fits and it was such a bargain! It’s a lot nicer than other ones I’ve seen because the detailing on the shoulders is stunning , so simple but so gorgeous. Primark have a lovely selection of off the shoulder tops , you should definitely check them out.

  • Coconut Lane – MacBook Pro Case Sassy – £28


Practically every blogger I know seems to love Coconut Lane so I really wanted to see what everyone was obsessing about. I ordered a case in the style Sassy and it arrived the next day , so I was really impressed! I got 20% off using the discount code BEAUTYSPECTRUM20 but there’s loads around, on YouTube and blogs. It is so good quality and it looks absolutely stunning . I can’t wait to use it in blog photos!

This is what I’ve bought recently , if you’ve tried any of these let me know because I would love to know what your opinion is.

Have a lovely Easter and I hope you get lots of chocolate !

Love ,

Jenna xx

  1. I’m a big lover of coconut lane and omg that burnt orange coloured eyeshadow looks absolutely gorgeous! I’ve been looking for cheap but good quality single eyeshadows so I could build my own palette and I had no idea NYX did them for £2.50! Definitely checking that out now, thanks for that!
