OOTD: Kooples & Zara, plus a little Outlet lovin’



I love an outlet scrounge and for the past couple of weekend I’ve ended up visiting York and Cheshire Oaks outlet stores.

I came back with this beautiful coat, which I grabbed at The Kooples and other bits and bobs including some MAC makeup and a couple Yankee Candles.

If you managed to get to either designer outlet; my fave stores include The Kooples, The Cosmetic Store, Yankee Candle and Penhaligons (amazing perfumery!) at York; then, Mulberry, All Saints and Joseph at Cheshire Oaks.

Anywhoo, this is the outfit I wore to Cheshire Oaks, its outside and it’s been super chilly, hence the bobble hat!

Hey there!

For some stupid reason my blog post decided to delete itself!! bluuergh, so now I’m here typing away again…

Sooo I pulled myself together to show you some of the new things I’ve been using/ buying this month!

The first piccie are some sandal from Primark that I picked up… I saw these on a haul video on YouTube by ThePersianBabe. She’s one I love to watch and she talks about things without being pretentious, or plugging products that you can’t afford. They’re really comfy and I’m planning in wearing to add a little bit of edge to summery outfits. They look good quality and more Topshop the Primark, so I’m really impressed! And then I got some 3 quid beauties! There jellie sandal and I’ve had a pair before and after about 5 years they snapped… SOB! So theses are taking there place YEY!

Then I headed over to Boots and bought a few essential top ups like Tresemme Freeze hold and Batiste dry shampoo. Both of these products I keep stocked up on and I haven’t found any better replacements so thank you Tresemme adn Batiste. Pluuuus, they were on offer; buy one, get on half price… I also took advantage of this by buying the much raved about MaxFactor Miracle touch cream blush and Maybelline The Falsies. I’ve tried the blusher and jeeebers… its amaze! You look fresh and it give you that healthy glow. I bought it in soft pink. Also, in this pic is a room fragrance diffuser, I picked this up in Primark for £3.00 and I love it! I bought the coconut milk and mango, ohhhh my living room smells like holidays and its not too strong or faint, so for 3 quid I’m very impressed and will be purchasing more, yes sir!

Then I decided to try the Michael Todds Detoxifying Charcoal facial mask. I bought this after my favorite vlogger, Tanya Burr kept raving about it. I was skeptical at first, as you can’t buy it in the UK and therefore I had to buy it online from the US. Buuuut, they were super speedy with delivery and it came to around £23 ish all together. I do think its fab! I don’t know whether it rivals the REN radiance renewal mask however. But, it does make your skin appear clearer and more luminous. I use it around 2-3 times per week, depending on how my skins looking…

Then lastly I took a little trip to York designer outlet… There is a fab shop there called The Cosmetics Company, I also know there is one at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet. Any whooo, I picked up these two products, the first being a cleansing oil, by Origins. Now, I’ve been trying out a number of facial oils from Shu Uemera, DHC and Clarins Pure Melt and wasn’t quiet ready to hand over the spondoolies, as there pretty $$$$£££. So I settled for this gem, I think I paid £14 and I think it’s usually around £20 and it works a treat. It does a really good job at taking all your makeup without feeling like your being harsh on your skin. It smells very aromatherapy-ee and feels lovely to use.

Next, I picked up Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink. This is the old packaging, I think, hence it being in the outlet, but it looks like you get more then the pot rouges in the new style, not too sure on this, but I have the pot rouge melon and it seems just a taaad bit smaller… hmmm. I do love cream blushers so now have both the miracle touch and this to play with whoohoo! I haven’t used it properly yet but I’m sure it’ll get its wear! Yep, yep!

Much love!
