♡ Collective Haul ♡

This is a few things I've gotten over two months on my own and for my birthday. So let's begin.

The first thing I'm going to talk about are my Adonis boots from Topshop. My mom actually got these for my birthday because I was lusting over them for months. I wish I could wear them now but it has been 80-90 degrees this week. I know these will be perfect for fall in winter with or without socks and i can't wait to wear them more. I swear these boots are perfect.

This i got today at Victoria's Secret today because i was $5 dollars away from a free towel and I couldn't resist. I also bought a swim suit which will be posted at a later date. Overall i love this body spray. It smells sweet and citrus-y. Its smell, according to the bottle, is sugar berry and pink grapefruit. It also claims that is has "conditioning aloe" in it, so I guess that's a bonus.

This is the Mesh Stripe Cropped Top from Topshop. I purchased this a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it. It is a bit sheer but no one will notice if you wear a nude bra. It also breathes well so I will be able to wear it in the summer. I plan on wearing it with high waisted shorts or skirts and some dungarees. I was told this shirt runs small so I sized up, but i wish i would have stayed with my normal size because it is a bit big.

I also got this from the Topshop at Nordstrom. Sorry I didn't take a picture for this one it was in the wash oops. I love this shirt it's so comfy but still looks cute. It has become one of my go to shirts because i can literally just throw this on with jeans or shorts and go. I've received many compliments on this shirt plus i got it on sale, so I was a very happy girl.
I got this skater dress on sale at Urban Outfitters for $20. I adore this dress it goes with anything and everything. It's light weight and looks perfect paired with a light jacket and some chucks or ankle boots. I've worn this dress so many times and in so many different ways.

I also picked up these two nail polishes. The one on the left is Essie's In the Cabana and the one on the right is from Urban Outfitters and it's called Slime. Slime is a chartreuse color so I love it, and I got it on sale for $1 so it was a steal! In the Cabana is a beautiful summery blue and I have it on my nails right now and have gotten tons of compliments already. Both are amazing, and if you like In the Cabana i definitely suggest checking out the rest of Essie's summer collection, it's great!  

My dad got me this MAC lipstick for my birthday and I love it. It's called Sunny Seoul it's a beautiful pink that has a bit of shimmer in it. It's good for everyday make-up and it smells and tastes kind of like cake. I couldn't get a good picture of the color (they all looked orange) so i'll post one from Google below. I also discovered that this was part of a limited edition collection so it's pretty hard to find. Some counters at Macy's have it, most MAC stores are out, but a few people are selling on Ebay. So if you see it buy it because you might not see it again, and personally I think this is a lipstick worth having.


I also took a trip to Ulta today to pick up some hair products. I recently ran out my Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum so i repurchased. I recently bleached my hair and since my hair it treated it need this to maintain silky texture and reduce frizz. The only downside to this is that it's a bit heavy, which is good for treated hair, but if your hair is natural a lighter oil should be used. One good one is Redken's Diamond Oil.

Also while at Ulta i picked up Urban Decay's Naked palette. I have wanted this for months but couldn't do it because of the price. I mean $50 for one palette is a bit overpriced, but i finally caved and bought it. I'm so glad i did. I'll do a better review of this when i get more time to try it out and play around with it, but so far it's pretty amazing. The only color I wish was included is Stray Dog. For some reason i'm in love with that color and will be purchasing it as soon as it's back in stock.

Colors from left to right: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, Gunmetal

 The last things i bought were these shorts from American Eagle. I think they're called festival shorties, but don't quote me on that. I got them in black and maroon. They are ripped on the legs and frayed on the bottom, they are so comfy but they do stretch a bit. I wish i would have got them in the bleached denim too. Overall perfect for summer and I can't wait to wear these more.

That's all for now. As always thanks for reading. Feel free to leave comments of  your favorite purchases or your summer plans below. 

Much love,
May ♡
