Haul: Celebrating Finishing My Degree!

This morning, I did my last ever exam of my Undergraduate degree.
For reasons best known to themselves, Uni timetabled this exam at 9am on a different campus, in a building I hadn't been in before in three years at Uni. However, I found it, I did the exam, and I even think it went sort of okay. And so afterwards, naturally, I went for a celebratory shopping trip! I didn't buy very much because I'm skint and need to save up for a house deposit, and because I also booked a tattoo appointment. But I'm happy with my purchases! Here is what I have treated myself to.
First, I nipped in Primark. I went into the changing rooms with eight items of clothing and came out with just one, as none of them fitted me right. This pretty sheer leopard print number cost me £8. I love the detailing down the front!


I also bought a pair of ridiculous massive sunglasses (£1 - bargain!), because sunglasses which suit me don't exist. Every pair of glasses looks ridiculous on my face, so I figured it's best to embrace this ridiculousness and just go with it!


Then, I spent a long time wandering around Boots, uninterrupted by sales ladies which was nice. I was restrained and didn't spend too much. I picked up a couple of Models Own nail polishes as there was an offer on for a free Nail Art Pen with two items purchased - I got 'Snow White', £5 as I've recently realised I didn't actually own a white nail polish, and 'Aqua Violet' from the Beetlejuice collection, also £5, because it's pretty. This qualified me for a free Nail Art Pen (normal price £6), and I chose this amazing neon pink colour which will be great for summer. Also, in the continuing Great Primer Search, I purchased 17's Miracle Matte Skin Primer, £4.99 (currently on promotion at £3.99!), which I'll pop a review up for soon. Finally, I checked out the shiny new Essie stand. None of the shades really caught my eye, though, so I picked up the Rapid Dry Top Coat, £8.99. Again, I'll do a review for this in the next few days.


Then, to Superdrug for some uninteresting essentials - hair grips (£1.79) and Surgical Spirit (£1.35) so I can try out this tutorial by Rebecca for turning loose pigments into solid powders. I have a few Barry M Dazzle Dusts which I sadly never use, despite how gorgeous they are, because they're just so messy! So hopefully once they're solid I'll be able to show them a bit more love.


I also treated myself to a Creme Egg but I ate that pretty quickly!
Are any of you guys doing exams at the moment? I hope they're going well if so! Now that I'm done I'll hopefully be posting a bit more regularly. I will however be pretty busy with finding a house for myself and my boyfriend to move into once my lease runs out on my current house at the end of June - so excited for living with the boy and for not living in a student house! I'm also hoping to find myself a job so I can save up some money over the summer. In the meantime I will be listing the contents of my wardrobe on eBay so feel free to donate to a worthy cause if anything takes your fancy ;)
