There's always something intriguing about hauls isn't there? I for one love them - you get to have a little bit of a nosey and generally get a decent enough look at what someone is into. Plus they're also a great way to see what new and interesting products are out there - I have other peoples hauls to thank for introducing me to a great range of brands I'd never even heard of or thought to try before!

If you were to pick some of the brands from my posts over the past couple of years, chances are blogging in general introduced me to them. Flamingo Candles, Nailed London, Keratin Revolution - I have bloggers to thank for these! In fact, I'd say that pretty much everything I buy in regards to beauty now has been featured somewhere within the blogging universe.

Simple websites with customer reviews on just don't cut it for me anymore - I love visiting someones website, their own creative space, to see their thoughts on the latest trends. Their reviews are more in depth, detailing their own experience with the products and pretty much covering all bases, good and bad. So for me, I have my fellow bloggers to thank when it comes to the majority of my hauls these days!

Liz Earle 'Daily Essentials Kit' for Dry/Sensitive Skin

Anyone who has ever read bits of my blog before knows that I suffer with terribly dry skin - I swear I must mention it in every post! After finishing up my usual No7 and Merumaya creams, I decided to branch out a little and try something new. I'm sure every blogger and their dog has heard of Liz Earle, especially the particularly infamous 'Hot Cloth Cleanser'.

With so many products in the Liz Earle skincare range, it was pretty hard to know where to start. Knowing I was in need of a new moisturiser, that was my first call. However as I'd seen numerous good reviews hailing the cleanser, I couldn't resist popping that in my basket too. 

Liz Earle products aren't the cheapest skincare items out there, but for good quality products I don't normally mind the price-tag. Thankfully, Boots actually have something they call a 'Daily Essentials Kit' - a combination of the best selling products to help give skin an extra brightening boost. With an exfoliator, cleanser, skin tonic and moisturiser, I can't wait to give this set a go - dry skin be gone!

Nyx 'Lingerie' Liquid Lipsticks in 'Teddy' and 'Embellishment'

Ah, Nyx. Ever since I attended the Beauty Blogger awards last year with Natalie (of Natalie's Beauty Base - go check it out!), Nyx have been a brand I've kept my eye on. Thankfully not long after the event, Nyx products finally became available to purchase through Boots - to the cheers of many happy bloggers!

One of their latest product lines to be released, the 'Lingerie' Liquid Lipstick range proved to be quite a hit within the beauty industry. For a while after release you couldn't really go anywhere on social media or blogs without seeing something related to them. They were everywhere!

A range full of beautiful nude shades, they took the blogging world by storm with their gorgeous, classy look and relatively low high street price. With 12 shades, it was difficult to try and narrow down a favourite. Aptly named with different lingerie motifs, the two colours I went for in the end were 'Teddy' and 'Embellishment'. 

'Teddy' is a gorgeous deep brown, kind of reminiscent of MAC 'Whirl'. Rich with a kind of plum undertone this shade is the darkest out of the range, making it an instant favourite for me. I've been loving darker colours recently, especially when it comes to nude lips - making this the perfect addition to my collection!

'Embellishment' however is another shade that is unlike any of the others due to its lavender tones. I've grown quite a lipstick collection for a while now, and whilst I have quite a few purple lipsticks, this shade is something different. A beautiful dusky lavender, this shade is perfect for a slight pop of colour.

OPI 'Drip Dry' Lacquer Drying Drops

Every girl who has ever painted her nails knows how tedious the whole process can be. For me I usually have to do my nails when I don't have much else planned, as I can be pretty clumsy. Plus, I get really annoyed if I get the slightest mark or smudge and have to start all over!

Anyway, as I was browsing the nail products on Boots.com, I happened across the 'Drip Dry' drops, and curiosity got the better of me. For £13.50 I was expecting a larger bottle, but then again you literally only need a drop or two per nail, so it does tend to last a good while I guess. Maybe now I can actually paint my nails and not be rendered immobile for a while!

I swear any problem can be solved with a bit of retail therapy - even stress! I already feel better...but then again, ask me at the end of this week! Have you been shopping at Boots recently? What did you end up buying? Or do you have something else entirely to recommend for me? Let me know in the comments below!
