Miscellaneous USA Haul

I hope you don't mind me putting up another haul so soon but it's been a long time since I did a non-beauty haul and I picked up some things whilst on my holiday that I wanted to share with you. I'll start of with the clothing and a few things I picked up from Forever 21. First are just a couple of basic tops which are all I seem to wear lately. This khaki v-neck burnout t-shirt is a super soft fabric and I pretty much live in v-neck t-shirts as I think they go with pretty much everything and are a little more flattering than round necked ones on me. I know I'll get a lot of wear out of this because khaki is one of my staple colours for A/W. Also I picked up just a stretchy striped top with long sleeves which will be great for layering. You can't go wrong with simple stripes!

The best item I picked up is this real suede jacket, also from Forever 21. It's such a great fit on me and because it's real suede it'll hopefully be really good quality and last well through A/W. The tan shade will go with most things I own so look out for this in a lot of outfit posts over the next few months!

I picked up a mascara from Covergirl, a drugstore brand that a lot of American's talk about. The brush reminded me of Maybelline's The Rocket mascara but it was quite a bit cheaper so as a lot of my mascaras are getting low at the moment, I thought I'd give it a try. So far I quite like it- it adds a lot of length to the lashes without much clumping. I wouldn't say it's the best I've used but it's pretty good. This cute cranberry scented candle was an absolute bargain- $1! I love the scent- it's very warm and autumnal- and I though the cute jar would look nice in my university room which I move into soon. I've got quite a lot of decor items to make my room homely so I'll definitely do some sort of room tour once I'm all settled in.

I have the HTC One Mini phone which is a really good one and even after more than a year I still like it. However I'm pretty clumsy and have dropped it a few times (ok, maybe more than a few times but shhh) which means that some of the plastic edging has snapped off. I'd been sticking it back on with sellotape but decided to pick up some cutely coloured Washi tape to repair it with from now on. Admittedly it doesn't look like the sophisticated phone it once was but this tape is super cute and I'm sure I'll find lots of other uses for it too. Finally I picked up the Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Lotion which is a product I haven't used for years but the scent is absolutely beautiful and once I'd smelt it I couldn't go without it. I actually didn't bring a moisturiser on holiday with me (for some strange reason) so this helped to keep my skin soft and tanned, plus it's a lot cheaper in America than it is in the UK.
