•Collective Haul - Victoria Secret, Oliver Bonas, Sephora •

by - 1:00 pm

As you guys know I recently visited York and Copenhagen, doing a bit of shopping in each. I pick up a few things that I was excited about,  so I thought I would do a simple haul for you!  Enjoy :)

First up, my York purchases, as you can see it is all books!!  I do love buying books, to read and to make my dresser looks pretty ;)
The Passive Aggressive Colouring Book is one of my favourite things!! I picked this in the Imaginarium whilst walking around The Shambles! I love 'adult' colouring books but this one is slightly different. This has quirky drawings, sayings and things that make life 'not perfect'.
I enjoy colouring this in more as it is just so fun!
I have linked the book on Amazon if you wanna check it out!

I then went into Oliver Bonas, which is one of my favourite homeware shops, however, I came out with two 'self-help' books.
'L'art de la Simplicite' which translates onto 'How to Live More with Less'. I have been eying this book up for a while, I like to hoard a lot of items, so this is slowly helping me reduce my 'clutter'.

I also bought 'How to be Parisian', I have seen this floating about, whether it was on Pinterest or Instagram and I really wanted to get my hands on it. I didn't really know what to expect, but it is just full of quirky 'Love, Style and Bad Habits' information. It's one of those books that is perfect to read on chill days and when you need a laugh. Not to mention it looks gorgeous beside my bed ;)

Next up we have Sephora, we found a shopping center in Copenhagen and to my surprise, we found a Sephora. Now I do love a Sephora shop don't get me wrong, however, Copenhagen prices are high ( as you will see) and I have kinda gone off buying expensive makeup when you can get it so much cheaper elsewhere. (I say in all my wisdom). However, one thing I do love in Sephora is their facemasks. The few times I have been in I have always picked up their masks! I just think they are great! I picked up an Avocado face mask and a Green Tea face mask as well as something I can't wait to try  the Charcoal nose strips!!

In the same shopping center, they had discounted makeup and beauty! This would be fab if you lived there, but I think it just worked out the same, apart from these Essie Nail Polish steals!
One is in the shade 'Coconut Cave' and it's a white with a very slight pink undertone and the other 'Naughty Nautical' which is a gorgeous sparkly turquoise shade. Both worked out to be just under £10!!

I also picked up a cute little Danish keyring, I am saving my keyrings up from the places I have been so it was only fitting to pick up another! I picked the bike as we all had a hard time trying not to get run over by them LOL

AND Lastly, the big one! If you have read my blog before then you may know that I have a slight obsession with Victoria's Secret, I just love everything! Their underwear, bras, clothes, PINK, and sprays, so when I spotted the black and pink writing whilst in Copenhagen, I legit ran!!
I did, however, get far too excited and got the currency converter wrong so let's just say I ended up spending a small fortune on two items! One being this cute mini set of all their perfumes, I honestly love their scents so I thought this would be perfect to take traveling with me! It comes with six so it will be perfect to do me the whole time I am away!
This last item was a complete splurge and it's this gorgeous Passport holder, I got a PINK backpack for my Christmas so I thought it would go so well and match! It also has a place for tickets which will be super handy and the VS logo is beautiful!
They both cost me more money than I had but hey I was on holiday! (Have a justified it yet?).

Let me know in the comments of you have any of these items? 
Hope you are having a fab Sunday!

  13. Victoria's Secret is just sooooo easy to splurge on so I feel you! The passport holder is gorgeous! I'm a fan of the Sephora own brand masks, they're so hydrating. I really didn't do much shopping in Copenhagen cause like you said, it's super expensive. I've made up for it since though 🙊
