Shopping.... Again

For the past few weeks I've tried to not spend much on clothes and beauty products but some how, 20% student discount on Asos and a trip to Brighton shopping managed to convince myself that I needed this lot....

Shirt: Zara £17.99 Sale
Now, I had no idea Zara were having a huge sale on at the moment (I swear!) but the whole Brighton branch is just sale items, so it was going to happen eventually. The shirt looks a little crumpled, but I had been wearing it that day. This print seems to be everywhere at the moment but I hadn't seen a good quality top in a flattering cut, cue Zara. I'm a massive sucker for shirts and Zara so it was a match made in heaven. Great quality, not too sheer but light enough, although it does crease a hell of a lot and the collar isn't my usual style, I think Zara basics are something that every girl should have in their wardrobe.

Hot Cloth Cleanser: Superdrug £4.99

The famous Liz Earle cleanser was slightly out of my budget zone (student and all!) but I had heard that the cleanser from the Vitamin E range from Superdrug was a good dupe. Although I can't give it a proper review, since I've only been using it for a few days, so far it's lived up to my expectations. Leaving my skin baby soft and free of make up, it does what it's expected to do. Plus the hot cloth gives it a kinda spa treatment feeling, giving your skin a bit of TLC. I usually use this before having a bath or shower, 'polishing' my face off with the hot cloth and also using the L'oreal Micellar cleanser to take off my eye make up. 

Eyebrow Pencil: MAC £13

An impulsive repurchase when wandering through The Lanes. Last time I went in they didn't have any in my shade, so since then I've been using my Rimmel one but MAC Fling is more suited and natural to my eyebrows. Even though they're always super busy in the store, the Brighton store do offer to help you with any testing of shades etc. and it's never that busy, in comparison to the London stores as they're tucked away in The Lanes. This eyebrow pencil has always been my favourite, great consistency and colour payoff, just a great all round eyebrow pencil. 

Breton Top: Mango via Asos £17.99

I've been after a good Breton top for ages. Usually Topshop or H&M saves the day but I found this after browsing across Asos (one of my favourite daydreams to do). It's more of a knitted top than a cotton top, which makes it more warm and just a bit better quality as I know it'll keep its shape etc after washing. It's pretty long, so you could get away with wearing it as a long top with leggings but so far I've tucked it into skirts and jeans, feeling very French. I can't wait to get more wear out of this, I've seen so many bloggers and celebrities wear their Bretons so I've got a ton of ideas!

Face Cream: Korres 24hr Moisturising Brightening Cream £20

'£20 for a face cream, Rhiannon?! I thought you were a student....!' It's not my fault, well, that's what they all say! After getting hooked on them at Christmas I needed to buy the full version. I've never really had such a 'luxury' product before but after using the travel version and seeing the benefits on my skin, it's hard to say no. It includes SPF 6, added bonus, as well as having a ton of natural ingredients with a massive list of all the nasty things it doesn't have it in, another attraction. I'm usually a combination skin but in the cold weather I've been getting a couple of dry patches which this cream has vanished, leaving an almost blemish free and super soft skin. 5 out of 5 for Korres!

Hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading!
