Hauley haul haul :) (Naughty shopping spree)

This morning I was bored, so I decided to go into town. BIG MISTAKE. I had a shopping spree yet again. The more you read of my blog, you will know that I am a shopaholic. Although saying that, the things I got today I needed for sixth form in September.  Here is the first thing I got:

"Pan Aroma Tin Candle - Cookies & Cream". I had a favourite gingerbread candle that was recently ruined, I was gutted! But then I found this one, it smells kind of like the gingerbread one, but smells much sweeter. I love it! Will let you guys know what it smells like once I have burnt it a bit :) - £1 from the pound shop ;)

PINK/PURPLE HAIR DYE?!?! I am currently bleach blonde (see picture below) and have been chickening out of dying my hair a different colour for ages! But I can't stay blonde forever (sadly) so have decided I am going purple in a month or so. I have never used schwarzkopf palette range, so I will write a review on it asap :) - Bodycare £3.49 each. I would recommend buying two packets, unless your hair is above your ears, then you can probably manage with one.

I am such a bag-addict. Most girls like shoes but I am definitely a handbag girl. Although I do love my shoes aswell ;) hehe. So I saw this in Dorothy Perkins for £12, I just had to get it. I thought it would be ideal for putting A4 folders in when I go to 6th form in September and it has snakeskin on it! I am a bit of an animal print addict, and I only have one thing snakeskin (pair of heels), so thought I needed a bag to match.

 The past couple of days, I have been borrowing my sisters clip (which looks like the one above) to tie my hair back out of my face when revising. I actually really like it twisted up in a clip like this. I saw this one in new look today for £2.99 so thought I would pick myself one up. This one even has little diamantes on the side - so cute!  Let me know if you want a pic of how I wear my hair in this in the comments below. 

I have saved the best till last... a frickin' leopard print collar coat!!! I saw one like this on a few weeks ago on sale, I managed to hold myself back then (JUST), but today I saw this in Dorothy Perkins for only £25 and I just NEEDED it. I have fallen in love with this coat. Words cannot describe how much I love it...

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed :) Please follow! It would mean a lot.

Andrew SH-arton review :(


The two products we bought were Andrew Barton's The Ultimate Blonde "Intensive mask treatment" and "Twice a week brightening shampoo". Recently I used up my herbal essences intensive mask (hair routine article coming soon) so I asked Mum to pick me another hair mask up. She was shopping at Asda online and saw this was on offer, down from £4 each usually, to £6 for the two. 

The shampoo claims to be "the ultimate in blonde haircare... shine, repair, great condition and the ultimate colour intensification. The intensive mask says it's "an amazing treatment for blonde damsels in distress" and is a "real power dose of intensive condition and shine." I can tell you this isn't the case!!

As a bleach blonde, I usually use purple shampoo's to get rid of any brassy orange bits. This is meant to be a brightening shampoo, but it didn't brighten my hair at all. It has no purple colour to it, it is cream and has a thick consistency.

I have very damaged hair as it is, after bleaching and heat damage. This shampoo literally made my hair unmanageable. I couldn't even get a comb through it! 

My mum doesn't dye/heat style her hair and she will use up pretty much anything I don't like, but even she thought this made her hair uncontrollable and straw-like.

I was very disappointed and horrified with these purchases and what they did to my hair! But I suppose you have to try everything once... ;)
