Small Collective Haul - Books, Candles & Make-Up

How Hard Can Love Be? By Holly Bourne £7.99
"All Amber wants is a little bit of love. Her mum has never been the caring type, even before she moved to America. But Amber's hip that spending the summer with her can change all that. And then there's Prom King Kyle, the serial heartbreaker. Can Amber really be falling for him? Even with best friends Evie and Lottie's advice, there's no escaping the fact: love is hard."

How To Build A Girl By Caitlin Moran £8.99
"My name is Johanna Morrigan. I'm fourteen and I've just decided to kill myself. I don't really want to die, of course! I just need to kill the old me, and build a new girl. Dolly Wilde will be everything I want to be, and more! But as with all the best coming-of-age stories, it doesn't exactly go to plan."

All The Bright Places By Jennifer Niven £7.99
" Theodore Finch wants to take his own life. Violet Markey is devastated by her sister's death. They meet on the ledge of the school bell tower, and so their story begins. It's only together they can be themselves... But, as Violet's world grows, Finch's begins to shrink. How far will Violet go to save the boy she has come to love?"

How To Be A Woman By Caitlin Moran £8.99
"It's a good time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However a few nagging questions do remain... Whay are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should we use Botox? Do men secretly hate us? And why does everyone ask you when you're going to have a baby?"

Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne £7.99
"All Evie wants is to be normal. And now that she's almost off her meds and at a new college where no one knows her as the-girl-who-went-nuts, there's only one thing to tick off her list... But relationships can mess with anyone's head - something Evie's new friends Amber and Lottie know only too well. The trouble is, if Evie won't tell them her secrets, how can they stop her making a huge mistake?

A few weeks ago I decided to take a trip to town to initially pick up two Primark candles that I have wanted for a while/wanted to repurchase.  That trip to one shop soon ended up in a little shopping spree and caused me to pick up a few more things. So I thought I would do a small haul post.

I ended up getting two packets of Primark tealights, £1.30 each, in the scents Sea Salt & Lavender and White Tea & Peony, and then a small jar, £1, in the scent Summer Rain & Forest Berries. I originally went for a small jar of the white tea & peony scent and another scent, but they only had tealights in one and then nothing in the other.

I also went on the hunt in Boots and Superdrug for the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, which I am unable to find in Sheffield.  But they didn't stock it in either of the shops I went into, so I picked up the Barry M Original Flawless Primer whilst in Superdrug. I had already looked up this primer and read multiple reviews for it which all said that it was great. Since it was 3 for 2 on all cosmetics, I bought two of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos in Creamy Beige and On and on Bronze. I already own Creamy Beige but needed to repurchase it, and since it was 3 for 2 I picked up On and on Bronze because the swatch I did on the back of my hand looked gorgeous. At Superdrug if you bought 3 cosmetics you also got a free mint green make-up bag with #nofilterneeded written across in peach. I already have the other version of this make-up bag (black bag with makeup written in hot pink) and love it and use it for my little mini cosmetics for college, so I was happy to get another.

Finally, I went to Waterstones and did a little damage to my bank account. I ended up buying four books, but they were on offer so that justifies it. I originally wanted Caitlin Moran's How To Build A Girl and How To Be A Woman, which I picked up, but then saw two books that two of my friends have read and love so I got those two. So in total I picked up the two Caitlin Moran books and How Hard Can Love Be? by Holly Bourne, and All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. During that week I went back to Waterstones to pick up another book, Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne, because it was the first in the series that I bought the second book of. I am super excited to getting reading these books as all my friends rave about them so much.

What have you bought recently?
