Haul: Topshop, Pennys, Vita Liberata and more!

Hello! So I have a little haul for you guys that I've accumulated over the past few weeks or so and I've been very pleased with some of the bargains I've picked up. I can be quite the sales impulse buyer so a lot of times I end up returning some of the things I pick up. I realize when I get home that I don't actually NEED and sometimes want what I purchased, which can be annoying when I have to go and return things again and again. 
I managed to buy some things I was actually looking for before I found them and some of them were even on sale!

I picked up these three necklaces from Pennys which were €5 each. I was super pleased to find them this cheap as other shops sell them for three times the price so it's a no brainer really! 
The one on the left is a cream colour and it separates into 5 different pieces and I think this is a good item that will go with different outfits as it's a neutral colour.
The one on the right is a pinky/coral colour which has triangles of different shapes along it. I saw this and immediately loved it as it will be great for spring/summer.
The top necklace is a gold chain and you will either love it or hate it. I obviously love it and think it will go nicely with some plain t-shirts. 
I definitely recommend checking out the jewellery section in Pennys at the moment because it's really good. And for €5 you can't really go wrong!

Sticking with the Pennys theme so far, I also picked up a lovely rose-gold watch with a floral face. Personally, I really like rose-gold even though I haven't a lot of jewellery in that colour. Unfortunately this watch doesn't actually work which I was pretty gutted about, but it was reduced from €6 to €1 so I bought it just to have for decorative purposes.
Next I picked up these gold hoop earrings for €1.50 which was a total bargain! Now, I wouldn't be a massive wearer of the old hoops as they usually look tacky on me, but I was so drawn to the smallest hoops in the pack that I had to pick them up being the price they were! The small hoops can look really interesting and when I get more ear piercings I'll definitely get use out of them. I'm not too sure what I'll do with the rest of the earrings but I'm sure someone will want them!

I came across the website FeelUnique which was great prices and free delivery so I purchased Essie's ''Aruba Blue'' nail polish which is a beautiful royal blue colour. I've been looking for that colour for ages to wear on my toes in the summer time. This colour is the exact one I was looking for so I bought it online where it was cheaper. I was really pleased with the packaging when it arrived because it was very secure in a little box, I would recommend shopping there so check it out!
Next I bought a nail polish off Asos, it's Models Own ''Beach Party''. It's a vibrant orange which is perfect for spring and summer and I first saw it on Zoella's Youtube and it looked so nice I had to buy it! It's a really eye catching colour and brightens up your outfit.
I have heard some good things about Essence's ''Get Big Lashes'' mascara and when I found out it was only €2.89 I bought it immediately because I was looking for a new mascara. If it's any good I'll do a review on it if you want to see it.

I have been on the hunt for some nice rings for a while and when I was in Topshop I spotted some really nice ones.   

The ring on the left is a midi ring which is gold with a diamond heart. It was €6 from Topshop and I want to go back and see if they have any more types as I love them! I have been looking for these types of rings for ages, so if you know of anywhere else that sells any nice ones do let me know.
The ring on the right is a vintage looking gold ring with a purple stone and I think it's really pretty. It was only €3 but its too big for my ring finger so I'll have to wear it on my middle or index finger.

Next are these two rings which are potential face scratchers so I'll have to be careful with them! But they are two gold spike rings with purple and white stones in the middle. They were €3.50 each, I really like them and I think they're interesting looking.

This next item is a clampless hair wand by BaByliss I bought in a car boot sale! I was ecstatic when I found this as I previously had one like it but it was lost/stolen (not sure which) and I was devastated when I couldn't find it. But I have a new one now and it was €12 (originally €35), used once or twice but has no scratches and works perfectly. This was my most exciting purchase of late. 

And last but not least, I picked up the Vita Liberata pHenomal 2-3 week tan in 'fair/clair'. I bought this on sale in Boots a few weeks ago so I'm not sure how much it was, sorry! I am so excited to try out this organic tan so if you would like to see a review please say so in the comments.

So that's my haul for you all, hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you've done any haul posts recently as I love to read them.
