I'm baaaaaack! Holiday Haul :)

Hello my lovelys! I'm back from sunny Tenerife with burnt bits and orange legs, for some reason that's the only place I EVER seem to tan, ah well! I had a GORGEOUS holiday, not gonna lie my absolute favourite part of the hotel was when we arrived and an actual porter came to take out bags from reception. This might seem like a little thing to some of you, but in all the hotels I've ever been in this has only happened once before, and I don't know why I like this cute little touch but it really makes me smile :). Even though I couldn't quite forget completely about England, with BBC1 on our TV I HAD to stay in for the apprentice final one night - and God I'm glad I did, I LOVE TOM! and I had my first experience in an internet cafe trying to order my boudoir prive box, and what an experience that was; in a whole empty cafe, this "slightly odd" bloke decided to sit next to me then snoop on what I was doing fairly shamelessly, good times?! But I did manage to get some sun, make friends with various waiters for a free cocktail and spend a few euros ;) 

Urban Decay Naked Palette;
I've wanted this for SO BLOODY LONG! And when I saw it on the plane magazine thing I knew I had to have it, justifying it by the fact it was about a fiver cheaper than usual with the no tax thing. It's beautiful and completely lives up to the hype and I've used it everyday since I purchased it, and I love it so so much! I love a neutral eye so this has always been the perfect palette for me and ah I could just go on about it for hours and hours but everyone else already has so I'll spare you all the boredom! I know my spending ban was on among other things, neutral eyeshadows, but this.... well it's a little bit special isn't it? Therefore, it doesn't count!

Tangle Teezer;
Time for another rave, this is AMAZING! This has firmly found it's way to my handbag and I'll be carrying it around for the near future, I used it just after I'd got out of the rain and my hair was all frizzy and knotted and within seconds my hair was back to it's best. This is a completely holy grail product for anyone with long hair, especially if like mine, it has a tendency to get knotted easily. Plus it's fab for a bit of backcombing :)

Andrea Fulerton Stunning Nails;
I had to have this little set, I've been wanting to try one of the trios for ages, and I've seen a blog post on this one "petrol in the water" before and  I'm so excited to try it! Plus included is a top coat and what looks like a perfect nude. Add some glitter and a nail file and this was completely needed in my collection.

Miss Dior Cherie;
A repurchase, this is my "signature scent", I'm rubbish at describing scents so I'm not even going to try but if you haven't, give it a try when you're next near a fragrance shop, it's bloody lovely!

Nail Art Pens;
I went in a little souvenir shop, and saw these little beautys on one of the shelves, so I picked a few special colours up to add to my collection, and they were complete bargains at 2 euro each!

I'm not a bracelet kinda girl, but I couldn't resist having a look at a cute little jewellery shops closing down sale. These three beauts were reduced to 10 euros each, and they'll look gorgeous layered together, I may be converted on the bracelet front yet!

From various market stalls and little shops I found these for 3-4 euros each. They're all gorgeous and lovely additions to my already quite generous ring collection, so I might have to start making some new ring storage! If anyone has any ideas....!

Aloe Vera Face And Body Cream;
I thought this would be gorgeous as a night cream, but after reading it it explains itself as a good base for makeup, and it really is! I use it thickly on dry patches at night, and lightly as a base in the morning, and it smells so gorgeous and works so well! I don't even know what I'm gonna do when this runs out because I've completely fallen in love with it :(

Various Magazines;
And ofcourse, some reading material for the beach ;)

And if you don't want to see a load of holiday pictures, skip to the bottom now. From beautiful views, to Jungle and Loro Park, I took enough pictures to fill my whole bloody camera, but I've cut them down for you lucky lot to just the alright ones ;)

Anyway, a lovely woman contacted me whilst I was on holiday, and I have a "recruitment event" thing for this job at a fashion store I applied for. If you guys have any tips or tricks, let me know! And wish me luck, this is the first interview I've been to, so I'm hoping I don't completely mess up!
Hope all you lovely lot had a gorgeous two weeks!
