The inevitable post-exam HAUL


We've all been there; you finish your exams or something you have been working on for a long time and feel the need to go out and seriously treat yourself. And this is exactly what I did. Some may say I took it a little too far (don't I always) but I say why the hell not? It's been a very long tough few months, and I felt it was time to be a little irresponsible. So along with lots of partying and sleeping, I HAULED. You may notice there is a theme: skincare and base. I concentrated on these areas because my skin has been a little rubbish after exam stress...Here is what I bought (on a couple of shopping trips): 

Space NK: 

Boots:

I also picked up my favourite candle; Lily Flame Mellow Figs and Garden Mint (if you like figgy scents you will love!) and grabbed a few testers from Space NK, including the Emma Hardie cleansing balm which I have been eyeing up for some time. Admittedly, I went a little crazy, but on the plus side...DOUBLE POINTS IN SPACE NK...good times. 

Have you guys been treating yourselves after exams? What have you been buying?

  2. I bought the origins GinZing moisturizer yesterday, the first part of my new skincare edit.I am slowly gathering products and I have my eye on that REN clarifying clay cleanser. My space NK was out of stock yesterday so I could not pick it up. Have you tried it as yet? Any feedback would be lovely.

  19. Congrats on making it through the exams though, you could also call it celebratory shopping haha?
    I haven't had exams where I'm practically assessed but I did a massive shopping spree after I broke my nose. Including NARS and Chanel, slightly over board? Naaaahhh. We all do it, don't worry haha!
    Bit jealous of these bits though! How are you finding the origins moisturiser?
