Birthday Haul

I don't normally post on a Sunday, but this is just a little bonus post because it's my birthday! And what better way to spend it than treating myself to a few several sneaky purchases?!

I went to Chester for a shopping spree yesterday and here's what I picked up:

This has been on my wishlist for months, so as I made a beeline for Lush yesterday it  would have been madness to not pick one up! Can't wait to give it a go!

Every year I say I'm not going to buy any more glittery bath products but I never stick to it! I've had my eye on this for a while. It's just too pretty for its own good, what can I say?

This was an impulse buy, like a magpie I was drawn to it glittering in the light and I already had glitter all over my hands from Sparkly Pumpkin so...

My friend got me a Fat Face gift card for my birthday, so while browsing I came across this. I didn't need a hat but I loved the claret colour.

Another impulse buy, I was just looking at the MAC stand and this stood out (it is bright purple!) so I tried it on not expecting to like it at all, and actually really did! It's completely unlike any other shade of lipstick I have and I never experiment with darker shades, I just hope I'm brave enough to wear it out!

I went the whole hog and bought the matching pencil, because in the few hours I had it on (I tried it, went away to think about it, and then came back) I noticed it bled a bit around my lips, so the pencil will help sharpen it up more.

All  that shopping made us hungry so we stopped for a lunch break, and went for tapas in Urbano32 which I've blogged about before, its amazing!

What do you think of my haul? Have you tried any of these things before?
