England Adventures: What I Bought

Hello, everyone! Today is the final installment of England Adventures. In this post - as the titles reveals - I am going to be showing you some of the things I bought on my holiday. Just a disclaimer, I am not in any way trying to brag or flaunt anything! I just thought it'd be a cool thing to post about!


Let's start with the beauty products! There are a lot of makeup brands in the UK that we don't have in America, so I thought when in Rome (or England), buy all their makeup!

The first thing I bought was the Barry M Gelly Nail Effects nail polish in the shade Blueberry. I got this from my first ever Boots for £3.99!

The formulation of the polish is nice, but nothing too extravagant! It drys very quickly, but there's no way you could get away with one coat; it's far too streaky! This was after two coats of nail polish. I apologize for my nail painting skills!

Next up is the Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadow! I got this for £6.99 in Boots.

I believe this is the shade 08, a yellow-toned, neutral colour with a bit of shimmer! When I say 'a bit', I mean the thing is made out of shimmer. I love it!

Isn't it gorgeous?! Since it's a similar colour to my skin tone, it can also be used as a highlighter. The glitter is so finely milled that it looks completely natural on the skin!

Also by Bourjois is the Delice de Poudre, a bronzing powder. I absolutely love this packaging!

When you open it up, it's looks like a story book with a chocolate bar inside of it! And guess what? It smells of chocolate too! This was £7.99 from Boots.

On my trip to Superdrug, I picked up one of the Tanya Burr Nail Polishes in the shade Penguin Chic. For those of who who haven't heard of her before, Tanya Burr is a famous YouTuber from the UK who recently launched her own cosmetics line. I couldn't be more proud of Tanya, so I had to show her some love! This is a gorgeous greyish-brown colour with a hint of purple. I thought it'd be perfect for autumn/winter! If I remember correctly, this was about £5.99.

In Cambridge, we stopped in Jack Wills to have a shop around!

At the counter, they were selling these Malaria No More bracelets for £5. All the profits went to Malaria No More UK; can you guess what they fight against?

Of course I bought one!

I also got this gorgeous floral tote bag for £12.50!

That's it for my English haul! I hope you enjoyed this pointless post about my purchases. I shall see you before the end of the month with a post about school snack ideas!

Until then,

  1. I've been curious about this Bourjois bronzer for awhile now since all of the beauty bloggers/vloggers seem to recommend it. I kind of regret not purchasing it when I was in London over the summer!


    1. Haha, that's the same reason I bought it! I'm sure you can purchase it online somewhere. I hope you had a wonderful time in London! :)
