Pre Holiday Haul...

Hello beauts, it's finally the weekend!

I leave for Turkey at 3am tomorrow morning so over the past week or so I've picked a few holiday items, I haven't bought much but I thought I'd show you what I've picked up...

Here goes!
White Hat, Primark, £4.00

I've been after a beach hat for ages & when I saw this I fell in love with it, I can't wait to wear it on the beach!
 Ted Baker Bag - Bicester Village Outlet - £24.00

I've loved these bags for ages but always thought £35.00 was a little steep for what is essentially a plastic bag but when me & the boyfriend visited Bicester Village last week it was £24.00 & my lovely boyfriend treated me to it. I can't wait to use this on the beach!
Mac Hue - Bicester Village Outlet - £9.50

I've been after Hue for ages but whenever I visit my local Mac counter it's always sold out so you can image my amazement when I managed to pick it up in Bicester Village for £9.50! The outlet store itself stocks Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Mac & Clarins amongst many other brands & I would certainly recommend going!
Nude Wedges - New Look - £15.00

New Look currently have 25% off all items in their holiday range, this includes bikinis, some shoes & clothes and other items. I picked these up for £15.00 down from £20.00 & thought they would be perfect for holiday as they will go with so many outfits I'm taking as I'm not taking ANY high heels, eek!
Black Peplum Top - Topshop - £24.00

I've seen so many people with this top so I'm hardly being very original but I LOVE wearing this top. It's really fitted so gives a lovely shape and the zip at the back is a lovely detail. I actually also own this in the ivory colour but it's currently in the wash for holiday, I would certainly recommend checking these out!
Striped Make Up Bag - Primark - £3.00

I was after a cheap make up bag to take on holiday and thought this was perfect. It's big enough to fit the majority of what I'll need & at the same time it's still uber cute!
Striped Make Up Bag - Primark - £2.00

I know buying 2 make up bags is a little excessive but I couldn't decide between the two and they were both super cheap so I thought why not. This actually reminds me of a similar Ted baker bag and almost matches my Ted Baker bag above. I'm using it to store my jewellery in when packing but i'm sure it'll get plenty of use when I'm back!
 False Lashes - Primark - £1.00

I've heard lots of good things about the Primark lashes so decided to pick up a couple of pairs. I haven't used these yet as I'm saving them for holiday but I'll be sure to report report back!
 Gold Wing Earrings - River Island - £3.00

I mentioned these in my Wednesday Wislist and decided to pick them up as my last pre holiday treat. They look lovely and I'm sure I'll get plenty of use out of them both on holiday & back home.

So that's it, my pre holiday haul!

I'm all packed & super excited. I can't wait to get on that plane and spend a week on the beach!

Hope you all have a great weekend.
