Collective Beauty & Fashion Haul – H&M, Next, Boots & Debenhams

I have been shopping up a storm in H&M recently, I am obsessed with everything in there. I love all their shorts, dresses, crop tops and loose jersey’s, just so comfortable but still flattering and perfect for summer time. Brent and I went on a little shopping trip on Saturday for holiday and a couple of bits I ordered online from H&M’s sale and also Next  and here’s what I picked up.


I am such a jeans and tee girl at heart and loved this dark khaki v-neck t-shirt that I picked up for £5.00 down from £8.00. This colour is out of stock now unfortunately, however they do still have some other colours.

I also picked up this gorgeous neon pink yoga top for £8.00 down from £14.99, it’s so comfortable and I love the racer-back straps.

I’m super fussy when it comes to jewellery, I am so picky but when I spotted this multi-strand necklace for £3.00 instead of £5.99 I couldn’t say no. It looks lovely with the khaki t-shirt but honestly goes with anything.

4PIN IT! 5PIN IT!Unfortunately the white pj shorts are now out of stock but they were such a bargain, £5.00 instead of £10.00. They just about fit and they are a little see-through at the back but they are pyjama’s so I don’t really mind, just need to remember if I answer the front door!

The floral printed high-waisted shorts are the reason I made an order in the first place. They didn’t have them in my local store so I made an order online. They fit perfectly and look so pretty! For £9.99 they are such a bargain and totally worth every penny.

9PIN IT!I’ve had my eye on this dress for so long. The floral print is lovely and so summery and I love the strap detail. I can’t wear a bra with this dress but I don’t mind as bra straps would ruin the strappy look of the dress. I can’t wait to wear this on holiday. I’m convinced this was £7.99 whenever I’ve looked before, but it was £12.99 when I bought it, still a bargain. I can’t find the floral print but here’s the plain coral one.

10PIN IT!I’ve also been after a slouchy cardigan for a while now, something light to throw on over my outfit when it gets a bit chilly and this light knitted one is perfect. Being grey it can be paired with anything and a total steal at £7.99.

NEXT8PIN IT!Since the other high waisted shorts are a floral print, it doesn’t leave me with a lot of outfit choices but I spotted these mid wash denim shorts in Next for £24.00. They are super comfortable and fit perfectly. They really mould around your shape without making you look unflattering.

I love this t-shirt as I love how bright and vibrant the colours are, also anything with New York on I’m sold! It was £16.00 and I think it’s new and not online yet as I can’t find it anywhere.

9 (1)PIN IT!The sandals were a must for my holiday as the ones I’m wearing at the moment are about 4 years old and falling apart, the straps are hanging on by threads. These are really comfortable and I love the reddish/tan colour, I always buy tan/nude sandals as they just look more flattering in the summer and go with more outfits. They are £18.00 which I think is a pretty good deal. The black ones are (can’t find the tan online)

I decided to sell my Michael Kors sunglasses purely because everyone has MK things now and I also felt that they were too big for my face. I decided to opt for a Ray-Ban Wayfare type shape and I’m pleased with these that I got for £13.00. I can’t find them online I’m afraid but there were tonnes in-store. I was downstairs choosing my glasses and Brent was upstairs, when we met up we had exactly the same style except Brent’s frames were slightly larger and his were black. Matching couple sunglasses, we are super cool.

IMG_4096PIN IT!Fiorelli bags are my ultimate obsession. I’m so over Michael Kors now as they are everywhere, I must have seen about 4 in town Saturday. I like these as they are mid range, affordable but still amazing quality. I’ve never owned a tan bag and have instantly fallen in love with it. This is the Mani Tote which also comes in black as well. I love how wide this bag opens and think it will be perfect for holiday and on the plane. I always buy my bags from Next because delivery is next day and it’s amazing! I’m so impatient and hate waiting around for online orders.


I haven’t bought anything in Boots for so long now but decided to take advantage of the Maybelline 3 for 2 offer that was going on. My local stores (we have 2) really annoyed me though as everything I wanted was used! It’s so gross! When I worked in Boots I made damn sure that people weren’t using the products. I picked up another shade of the SuperStay nail polishes in the shade Hot Salsa as someone recommended it to me in my last nail polish post. It’s a gorgeous coral pink and I can’t wait to wear it. I’ve always wanted to try the Dream Lumi Touch concealer as I know some people think it’s similar to the touché Éclat and I want to compare them. And finally, the The Eraser Eye concealer. I have the foundation and love it but they didn’t have my shade anywhere. I went to both Superdrugs and both Boots. Anyway I went back into the larger store and spotted my shade as a tester. The tester was brand new and still sealed, it definitely wasn’t there the first time I checked the store. So….I peeled the tester label off and added it to my basket….shhh don’t tell.

I also picked up the Soap & Glory Orangeasm Body Wash which doesn’t actually smell that great. Lovely and fresh but slightly odd. I wanted try it anyway as some shower gels smell better once they are being used.


From Debenhams, I had £5.00 on my Beauty Card so I picked up the Juicy Couture Malibu Collection Roll On as it will be great for my holiday next month and with my beauty card, it was only £5.00. They smell so amazing, Juicy Couture is definitely my most favourite fragrance line. Everybody loves saving a bit of money on their shopping, especially beauty bits, I enjoy the products a little bit more then. Handy sites such as Codesium offer voucher codes for Debenhams, Nordstrom and ASOS!

As I was leaving, I spotted this in the YSL clearance section. I’ve never tried a blusher from them before and I can’t wait to give this a go. It’s the Cremé De Blush in the shade 2. The amazing part though?! Just £15.00 down from £30.00, amazing! The packaging is so gorgeous and it’s the perfect subtle pink shade.

I will most definitely be trying to include the clothes in fashion posts and also reviewing the beauty product when I have tried and tested them sufficiently so keep your eyes peeled!
