Hello, I'm back with another of my hauls! 
A week ago, I made my very first order with Fragrance Direct as I have heard you can grab some really good beauty bargains. The delivery is cheap, but not the quickest (I chose 2nd class for just £1.99) however I am a patient person, so I wasn't too fussed. This is definitely a great site to shop on and I will be doing so very soon, especially for Christmas presents!

The first thing I put in my 'basket' was the Vera Wang Princess perfume. I have been dying to try this for so long but could never justify spending £60 or so on a perfume. When I saw it on Fragrance Direct for £38.99 for the 100ml, 6ml roller ball and a free sample of the YSL Manifesto perfume, I jumped at the chance! It's a lovely girly, fruity and floral scent which would have been perfect for Summer. There is also another 100ml Vera Wang Princess perfume on this site which retails at £50.99 which doesn't include the roller ball or the free sample! So make sure you click on this LINK like I did to save and get more for your money!
Next I clicked on The Nail Doctor Rescue Me 10 Day Strengthening System. I have never heard of this brand before or seen any reviews on it, but it was only £1.95 so thought I'd pick it up. I have very weak nails and always split and peel, so if this works out, I'll be very happy! This is a 2 step system that includes a base and top coat which have vitamins and proteins to help strengthen your nails. I will do a review on this product once I have tried it out, so there will be more details in that post.
The final thing from Fragrance Direct was the Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Nail Polish in 332 Baby Pink for just 99p. As you can see from the pictures, I wouldn't class this as a baby pink, just a normal to Barbie kind of pink. However, I did read a review of this before I bought it and actually like the colour despite the name. It applies really well, but probably needs 3 coats to be fully opaque.

At the weekend, I popped into my local TK Maxx to see if I could find any bargains. I ended up buying a box of 4 Essie Nail Polishes for £9.99 in the colours: Orange, It's Obvious (an orange - obviously), Tour De Fiance (a hot pink with blue/ purple shimmer), To Buy Or Not To Buy (a lilac with blue shimmer) and Navigate Her (a pale green). I love all of the colours, even the green which I wasn't so keen on. They apply really well and I can see why people have so many of them! I also saw that all these polishes are on Fragrance Direct as well for £1.99 each, but I don't feel ripped off as buying all 4 including the P&P, it comes to £9.95.

And finally, what is a haul without something from Poundland? I found this Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Balm in Pink Crystal which is a hot pink colour with bits of shimmer in. I'm slightly disappointed with this as the colour pay off is non-existent and I find it's quite sticky on the lips. However, I like the watermelon smell and the fact it has SPF 15. It also comes with a little brush, which is slightly pointless as I didn't realise it was there until I was editing these photos haha!

Hoped you enjoyed this haul! Please recommend any more Essie nail polish colours as I really want to get some more!

Amie ♥

  4. I agree with your opinion on the Revlon lip balm they consistency is quite sticky and there is definately no colour at all. I find the little brush very very good at applying the product better than the fingers!

  23. That's a great haul. The Vera Wang perfume is one of my favorites, it's such a sweet girly fragrance. Lovely Essie's too, seeing a lot of darker colours around atm so its refreshing to see something bright again!
