Payday Treats!

Hello lovelies. So this weekend was payday for a lot of us, and for me it certainly felt a long time coming. So this weekend I decided to treat myself to a few bits and bobs and I know that some of you will just love some of these little gems that I picked up. 

From Left to Right

I was really excited when I hit the shops this weekend and it turned out to be a bit of a first for me in two ways. One I finally splurged and bought my first ever Mac Lipstick and two, I bought my first item of makeup from Topshop. I really think I'm the only blogger ever not to have tried either of these, but in my local town we have no where to buy Mac and our Topshop is so small that it doesn't sell any makeup at all....BOOO!! 

When popping into Mac I was like a kid in a candy shop. I literally filled up every spare space of my hand with swatches, removed it all and repeated the whole process over again, I had so much fun! There have been loads of videos and posts up recently about everyone's top 5 Mac lipsticks, so I had an idea of which one I wanted. After much swatching I fell in love with 'Impassioned' which is the most gorgeous, brightest fuchsia I've ever seem.... I'm in love with it and can promise you that this will beauty will have a post all of it's own!

When hitting Topshop, again I knew that I wanted to try a lipstick. I originally thought that I wanted the famous 'Infared' but changed my find after swatching 'Rio Rio' which is a vibrant combination between red and orange and I think this will look perfect for summer. 

Next up was some much needed hair dye, it's reached that time again where my last application of hair dye has completely washed out and faded. I was really impressed with the L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss last time, so thought I would use it again. This time I've opted for the shade 360 Black Cherry, which is a few shades darker than the mahogany shade I used before. I will let you beauties know how I get on with this. 

Whilst I was in Boots, my mum was looking at the Revlon nail polishes. They had a two for £8 offer on, so we picked a colour each. This bight pink in shade in 185 Sweet Tart, really caught my eye and I defiantly don't have anything like this colour in my collection. The camera is showing it to be a bright barbie pink, but its more of a neon pink in its true form. Expect to see this in a NOTD. 

I know every beauty blogger and nail polish addict will have seen all the polishes from the new Models Own Hed Kandi range by now, but I've only just got my hands on them. I ordered these directly from Models Own a few weeks ago, but they were sent to my sisters address and I've only just picked them up. 

The two glitters 'Disco Heaven' left and 'Ibiza Mix' right, really make my eyes pop and my mouth drool. They are some of the prettiest glitters I've seen in a long time and I think they would look amazing paired with any polish. These two are defiantly a summer essential! As for 'Hedonist' all I can say is WOW, I suggest to anyone that they pick this up and see this in its true glory!

Lastly I picked up this denim shirt from River Island which retails at £30. I've had my eye on this for a long time and I'm so pleased I have it in my wardrobe now. Its a gorgeous thick, but soft denim and looks great worn undone with any top you decide to put underneath it. This looks flattering on anyone and is one of River Islands best sellers at the moment.

So that's everything for my payday treats, I hope you enjoyed beauties. No doubt you will be seeing most of the items here show of in a post of their own, but if there is any preference as to what you would like to see first just let me know and I will see what I cam do.
