Happy New Year - Thankyou Ariel :) + Benefit, Mango, RiverIsland, Hollister & Massive LUSH Haul :)

Hello lovelies!

I can't believe that it's 2012 already can you? I hope you all had a lovely New Years Eve and are ready to have a fantastic 2012! I know I said that I would do a haul a couple of days ago, but I waited until today because my parents and I decided to go to the Westfield in Stratford today - which was practically empty!!! So I have a collective haul of things that I've bought from Lakeside and Westfield over the past week :) Things have either been purchased with Christmas money, or my own money from my part time job! I'm going to put links for the things that are available online!

But first thing's first, the lovely lovey Ariel from recently did a swap with my sister Chloe and she sent me a few things! I cannot explain how happy and excited I was to recieve these gifts, it was such a lovely surprise and made my day! The first thing she got (A Santa Kit Kat - I've already eaten so I can't show that picture haha!) But here are the other two things:

The lovely Ariel sent me a summerfruits EOS lipbalm, which I absolutely love! I was so jealous when Chloe got one before so I was thrilled :) The next thing was a Twisted Peppermint antibacterial handgel, it's the perfect size to just throw into my hadbag, and smells amazing! I have a little bit of an obsession with having antibacterial in my bag, you never know when you're going to need it! So once again thank you Ariel :)

So on with the haul!

I got this top from Mango in House of Fraser it was £9.90 - It's a light cotton material with black lace across the top, I think that it will be really nice with jeans for college :)

The next thing I got was a calander from the Calander Club for £5.99 which had been reduced from £10 as alot of you know I love New York so I thought this would go well in my room, also one of my newyears resolutions is to get more organised!

I also got the Benefit Ticket to Glossytown lipgloss set on sale for £13 which is amazing considering it contains 6 lipglosses!
The benefit ticket to glossytown lip gloss collection comes with:
  • so frisk me (gilded berry)
  • nudie-tude (goldspun twist)
  • spiked punch (juicy coral)
  • life on the A list (bubblegum pink)
  • foxy lady (diamond rose)
  • kiss you (clear fuchsia) 
Sorry for the poor quality picture, but I got the emerald green blouse from Riverisland on sale for £12 down from £24.99 I love how it's slightly longer at the back so I can wear it with leggings!

 As some of you might be able to tell I've been loving lace recently, so I got this t-shirt from Hollister today on sale for £18.90 I think it adds a nice touch to a simple tshirt!

The next thing I got was these skinny jeans from Hollister for £40 they are so comfortable and fir really nicely! The link is here :)

So now onto the Lush haul, I've already used a few things so they are not in the picture below but here's most of what I got! Instead of unwrapping everything I've taken some pictures of the products from otherwebsites so that's my disclaimer haha!

There's a mixture of permanent products and some of the Christmas ones which were half price!

I absolutely love the Lil' Lush Pud so I got a couple of them as they only cost 98p!!! They smell very almondy - alittle bit like marzipan :)
I also got a couple of the Melting snowman bath melts which were also 98p on sale! They make the bath lovely and milky, I'm going to miss them throughout the year!
 The Candy Mountain Bubble Bars  have to be my absolue favourite Christmas product at half price for £1.33 I decided to get 3 of them - they smell very sweet and a little bit like the comforter Bubble Bar!
 The Ginger Bread Bubble Bar was on sale for about £1.50 I think, it smells exactly how you think it would haha! It turns your bath water bright orange and is lovely on a cold day!
 I've actually already used one Golden Wonder Bath Bomb and my Mum used the other one, they smell like Bucks Fizz and turn the water Turquoise (as there's bath bombs inside) with gold sparkles!
 This lovely little bath bomb only cost 98p and smells like apples, I love the name 'So White', there's no major suprise with this one like there usually is with Lush products, but I love how refreshing it is!
 I actually got 4 of the cinders bath bombs for 98p each - I absolutely love them as they smell of cinnamon and have popping candy ontop so the bath water crackles!
As you might be able to tell from the top picture I've already used (and broken) this lovely Magic Wand! If you know what the Snow Fairy Shower gel smells like this is exactly the same! All you have to do is whirl this around in the bath and it creates lovely smelling bubbles! The woman in the shop said that this should last about 10 baths so for £2.35 this was amazing!

Next is the regular products that you can buy year round!

The first thing I got was the Oatifix Facemask which was given to me for FREE from the lovely staff in the Westfield Lush as a newyears present - how nice is that? I have not yet used it but I'm looking forward to trying it out, it says that this mask is perfect for sensitive skin which I have so this should be great! It usually costs £5.50!
 Those of you that have read my blog for a while know that the comforter Bubble Bar is my absolute favourite, it smells of blackcurrants and lasts about 3 baths :) It costs £3.99!

 The Twilight Bath Bomb smells gorgeous with hints of lavender, for £2.99 it's perfect after a long day!
This Blackcurrent Bath Bomb is one of my favourites, it costs £2.75 and smells exactly how it sounds!
 The Creamy Candy Bubble Bar costs £2.35 and is lovely, it contains whole chunks of cocoa butter and really smoothes the skin :)
Finally is the HoneyBee Bath Bomb, it smells exactly like the Honey I Washed The Kids Soap, it costs £2.95!

So I hope you enjoyed this haul! Let me know if you have been sale shopping :) remember my Sleek giveaway ends tonight!

Stay Beautiful,

Hannah xx
