Dublin Haul

Hey!
Last week I stayed with my cousin for a few days, and we did a tad bit of shopping. I normally don't do hauls as it takes me ages to collect enough items but I purchased a nice few things. I thought I would buy a lot of clothes but that was not the case at all!


The first place I went to was Lush on Grafton Street which if you know me I love. I wasn't there since Christmas so I needed to stock up a little. There are 2 Lushs in Dublin but I much prefer the Grafton Street one as I find it has a better layout and the employees are nicer there.


No Drought Dry Shampoo
I had this on my list for ages as I am finding that less spray dry shampoos work for me and I decided I would try this powder one as there are very few on the market. It smells like lemonade! It was a little pricey compared to other dry shampoos, €10.25 to be exact, but I think it may take me longer to get through the bottle. I have tried it out once with a little help with another dry shampoo and they both worked well together. I will give you an update on how I am getting on with it.


Don't Look At Me Fresh Face Mask
This face mask has to be my all time favourite Lush mask and I've tried quite a few, 9 to be exact! The last time I was in Lush it was out of stock and this time I picked up one of the last in the place. It is very exfoliating and leaves my skin feeling smooth and fresh. Also, the smell is divine, if you like citrus then you'll love this.

I got 2 samples as well, Ro's Argan Body Conditioner and Ultrabland Cleanser, as I heard great things about both of them and one of them has my name in it but I knew I didn't have the money or the space in my suitcase to bring them back!


Next stop was Jervis Shopping Centre to Forever 21!




Floral Open-Shoulder Dress
I am normally not a dress person at all but when my cousin suggested for me to try it on I fell in love. It is a beautiful dress that is mid thigh length, perfect for any Summer event. I love for it can be dressed up or down, with a pair of cropped jeans it would be perfect for everyday where if it is a little on the cool side and by itself for a party or if it decides to get warm again in Ireland, please.


Last but by the means least Primark on Mary Street which is 3 floors of all things Primark.


PS The Come Clean Cloths
I was very curious about these as they look identical to The Makeup Eraser and my Cleanse Off Mitt was in need of replacing. It's a fleece material and very soft and takes off makeup amazingly with just water. I've been using one this week as I left my Cleanse Off Mitt in Dublin. So far, I like it but I'd love to do an in depth comparison of the 2 cloths.


Coral Powerbank
I did not intend to buy this at all but it was only €9 and I knew it would be handy to have when I am in Edinburgh and my phone or my iPod is low on battery. I love the colour of this powerbank, it is so vibrant. This battery is 4000 MAH which means it can charge my iPod nearly 4 times and my phone twice. I bought this on a complete whim and should have really checked the specs of my iPod and phone but I don't regret buying it.


Duo Lash Adhesive in Clear
I bought individual lashes a few months back but the glue dried out completely so I couldn't use them. I haven't tried this out yet but I have heard that this is a very good eyelash glue and it stays put for ages.

Sultry Fake Lashes
I haven't tried strip eyelashes before and I thought it would be best to start off with cheap ones to see if I like them. I got these as I have heard a few people talk about the Primark fake eyelash range and these seemed the most interesting.


Hydrating Avocado Sheet Mask
I tried out one of Primark's sheet masks before and I wanted to try out this avocado one as I love me some avocado. I like to keep the sheet masks for between the Lush face masks as I can't always go and get a new fresh face mask. I hope this one smells like avocado then I'll be pretty happy.

Have you bought anything nice recently? Let me know.

Thanks for being awesome,
