Haul // Boots, Superdrug and H&M

It feels like I haven't done a haul in ages when actually it has only been a month! That's pretty good going for a beauty blogger though! I really have been good shopping wise recently so when I popped into town with my family I thought I'd treat myself to a few new beauty products and as you can tell I also found my way into H&M!

I didn't actually buy this first product yesterday but I thought I'd pop it in anyway! For years now people have told me that I'd suit 'more ginger' hair. I've never been brave enough to take the plunge so when I finally felt like doing it I thought I'd pick what I thought to be a subtle shade, light golden! I've used Nice 'n Easy before and never had any problems so stuck with them. I dyed my hair yesterday and I can finally say to everyone that told me to dye my hair that doing so was a complete mistake! My hair is like a fiery unnatural ginger shade as I write this and I'm going back out very soon to buy some brown hair dye to mask it, I'm so glad I only went for a semi-permanent shade! I'm glad I did it though as I'd never know otherwise whether it would suit me, I am a bit annoyed though as the colour that my hair is now is no where near the colour on the box, it isn't similar at all! At least I can re-dye it brown though!

Another hair product next! For quite a few months now I've been wanting to pick up the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Deep Treatment Mask so when I saw it was about half price in Superdrug, £2.97, I had to pick it up! I haven't use this yet so can't really say anything about it but once I've tried it out a few times I'll definitely let you know what I think!

Also in Superdrug I treated myself to a few beauty products! Firstly this NYC Nail Polish caught my eye, it's in the shade Manhattan. It looks like the perfect Autumn purple shade! I've got a few NYC Nail Polishes and I really like them so hopefully I'll like this one just as much!

Also I had a peak at the Collection stand and found the new Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencils! The shade Vanilla Sky has been on my wishlist recently so I picked up the last one on the stand and made my way to the tills before I spent anymore money! I can't wait to try this out as I love cream eyeshadows, they are so easy to apply and are great for Sixth Form/School! I think this might have been on offer but I'm not sure, either way it was only £2.50!

On Friday I headed off to the hairdressers for the first time in quite a few years! I didn't have anything major done but I'll do a post showing you it and also my new hair colour! I can never ever seem to recreate any kind of style a hairdresser creates but that never stops me trying! I picked up this brush from Boots for about £4 after it made a real difference using this kind of brush when drying my hair! My hair was straighter and smoother after using it so hopefully I can achieve at least 10% of what the hairdresser did! I also picked up some Hair Clips from Poundworld for when I straighten my hair!

Then in H&M I headed straight for the hats as I love wearing hats in Autumn and Winter! I found this one for only £1.99, it isn't quite a beanie which I like, it's like a girly beanie (or that's how my Mum describes it anyway!) Either way it's a bargain for only £2!

Finally I had a little peak in the sale and found this cat jumper! You all know how much I love cats, my cats in particular, so when I saw this I had to pick it up! I'm not a big fan of the star on the cats head but it won't bother me too much. It's a really thin see through material so I'll wear a vest top underneath, to keep me warm as well! It's really oversized and I have to roll up the sleeves but I really like it! It was only £7 as well!

I wonder if I'll be as good shopping wise next month?
