Obviously I did not buy this all today, I'm bad but I'm not that bad! These are a few recent purchases over the past week or so from Marbella and London. Whilst I was away I bought quite a few things from Zara because the prices over there are slightly cheaper and they tend to have better stock. I've been wanting one of these bags for a while but I'm so fussy about gold detailing so once I found this nude/ gold version I was sold. This will definitely come in useful when travelling and on the beach, I'm not a light traveller so this will be used when I fly back out on the 24th. I also bought these gold wedges which are slightly 'out there' but will be perfect for matching with lightweight dresses or playsuits on nights out whilst I'm away. I'm not too sure about these shorts, I love the bright colours and gold stud detailing but the fit isn't quite right so these are possibly being returned on Wednesday. 

Whilst I was in London the other day I picked up this playsuit from the large store on Oxford Street, I love the colourful palm tree print and the corset style fit (even though it meant I had to breathe in all of Saturday night!). I also bought this colourful floral bralet which is part of the 'For Water' collection currently featured in store. I'm a big fan of crop tops/ bralets because I think they are flattering if you have a small waist but larger hips like me. 

I was in desperate need of some new make-up because I accidentally put my favourite palettes in the bin whilst cleaning out my uni room! Luckily my house mate rescued them for me once I'd got home and realised. To substitute my loss I bought this Chanel Mystic Eyes eyeshadow palette which contains pretty neutral tones and shades of brown which are the colours I usually stick to. I also bought Mac Lightscapade which is a brilliant highlighter and Bobbi Brown Bali Brown which is probably the best bronzer I have ever used, I highly recommend both of these products!
