June Haul

Happy June! This year is just flying by. Only a few more months until school starts up again! So much to do. Anyway, when I was cleaning out my wallet the other day, I found a F21 gift card. Such a surprise. I forgot all about it, but for my birthday my friend had gotten me a gift card. So I figured, 'Why not?' and did a bit of shopping. I'm surprised at how much I was able to get. I haven't been in a F21 store in ages, and it's been even longer since I've been on the website. I was pleasantly surprised at what they had, and just about everything I got was from the sale section, with a few exceptions.

I was unsure of this bag. I took it in and out of my cart so many times before finally deciding to get it, and I'm glad I did. I thought it would be a lot smaller than it is, but it's actually quite large! Perfect for travel.

Picked up some cosmetic items. I've never needed an eyelash curler because my lashes are naturally quite long and curled, but I thought it would make using falsies much easier, so I thought why not!

The two lashes on the right I bought for my mum. She expressed an interest in falsies when she saw mine, so I bought her some to play with!

I love this dress, but unfortunately it's a bit too big. I wish they had a smaller size, but they didn't have the option online, so I will have to take it in a bit! Fortunately, the seams are in such a place that it will be easy to take in the top a bit and take up the skirt a little! The fabric was amazing though. I was expecting for the quality to be lower, and the fabric to be a lot lower quality than it is, but it's so nice and soft. Love the bandeau, too. A lot of the ones I've tried in the past have been ill-fitting, but this one fits perfectly. I want lace everything this season!

I'm addicted to hats, and couldn't pass this one up.

Picked up the necklace for my friend! She loves Seungri from Big Bang, and seeing as his nickname is Panda, I thought it was a cute gift!

I was really pleasantly surprised about the quality of the items from F21. I'm so used to everything being quite low-quality and cheap, and really not durable at all. If I didn't have the gift card, I don't think I would have bought anything, but I'm glad I did. It was a pleasant surprise, and looking online is so much nicer than looking in the stores. At least when it comes to F21. I hate stores that have all their product crammed together. It makes it so difficult to find anything appealing and takes so much time!

Some giveaways from great blogs that you should check out (the blogs not the giveaways, but that, too!).

Sami is celebrating two years! There are a lot of cute prizes in her giveaway, and her blog is awesome. She does a ton of reviews, which are helpful, and she's got cute style!

  2. I love F21! I think I saw that makeup bag the last time I was there but I was looking for something that had separators so all my makeup wasn't jumbled together, it was definitely cute though :) thank you for joining my giveaway and being such a great follower <3 

  3. I'm hit and miss with F21! Sometimes I find things I love, but sometimes I never find anything!  I was back and forth with the bag, but I thought it would come in handy for school because I'll be living in dorms this coming year D:  So a handy cute way to carry my shower items~

    Not a problem at all haha, cute prizes and I love your blog so!

  4. The cosmetics look so good! Want to put on a pair of falsies right now haha
