Yesterday I decided to go venture into Manchester Arndale (It has been a while!) and picked up a few items for college next month, after a lot of you enjoyed seeing what I purchased in my Primark Haul post, I thought you'd love to see some of the items I've purchased in my most recent shop.

OOTD Casual Summer Tailoring
As I am literally a few views away from 2000 (All in the space of 2 weeks since I started CGP - thankyou everyone!), I thought I would post my first (Of many in the future) outfit posts.
Today's post is all on how to create a versatile Summer outfit. Perfect for a night out to a restaurant or a daytime garden party, this outfit is cheap and easy to recreate despite its expensive look! This is a great outfit for anyone on a budget.

Another Lush instalment!
Despite it's name, Lush's Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter can be used on any areas of dry skin such as the knees, elbows, heels, hands, nails and of course the cuticles.
I don't necessarily suffer from dry cuticles, but I do suffer from dry, cracked heels and chapped hands! I've previously tried Lush's Helping Hands Cream, this worked wonderfully although it did have an odd Playdough scent, so now is the time to see how well Lemony Flutter works...

Primark for me is one of those stores that you always forget exists whilst your out shopping on the highstreet! Some people may consider Primark to be a bit cheap and tacky, but they've recently upped their game and if you shop around you can find some amazing quality purse friendly items!
Today's post features some of the items I purchased from Primark over the weekend...

MAC Blush Baby is one of my first and still remains as one of my absolute favourite MAC blushes that I own, this is definitely one of those blushes that look flattering on a wide variety of skin tones ranging from the palest to some of the darkest! This is why...
Maybelline was the first ever brand that I had tried foundations from (Now that's a couple of years ago!), my favourite of-course was Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid. However, after realising that there was more to the foundation world than just liquid bottle types, I decided to venture on in what would become my foundation journey!

I am a body scrub fanatic, whether it be in the cooler months where you can 100% count on me sporting a fake tan or when I am in need of sloughing away dead skin cells - a body scrub is my saviour.
I recently featured a poll on my blog, asking which 'base' product shall I give you all a review on next, here is the winner of that poll! Collection (Previously Collection 2000) Illuminating Touch Concealer.

Today's post is a very special post featuring my Alyce Paris prom dress, I thought that I would feature my dress in a post as I feel that the overall quality, detail and look of the dresses Alyce Paris create are outstandingly beautiful, from head to toe.

As with all Kurt Geiger purchases, you get the infamous red bag with 'Kurt Geiger' printed on either side. When instore you are treated amazingly! They have no hesitation on going straight to you and helping you out, not many stores you can say that about.
Continuing with my Summer tag, why not throw in a BB cream! The perfect base for Summertime, as its not too heavy yet covers any flaws whilst having the ability to look natural and contain added skin benefits such as SPF - essential for days out in the sun!

Urban Decay Bamboo PaletteI've not seen many reviews on this palette to be honest and I'm not quite sure as to why! I bought this when I was travelling to Cyprus in 2009, so I've had this palette for quite some time indeed.
I purchased the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser from The Body Shop at £7.50 for 30ml (1.0flOz) of product.
The packaging is reasonably attractive, it is tailored to match all of the Tea Tree range at The Body Shop with its green tube and leaf background. Its perfect for travel as none of the product can escape from the twist cap tube and small enough to fit into your bag without taking up too much room!
Here's my second instalment on my LUSH product posts!
Everyone has a soft spot for Lush, whether it be the smell as you walk past one of their stores, the feel of their shower jellies or a crush on one of the store staff! We all have our moment of pure lushyness... or is that just me?

Here is a review on one of MAC's best selling blushes, MAC Peaches. This is a pretty peach shade and is a great alternative if you're someone that tends to wear a lot of pink on your cheeks.
My first Lush Product Entry! Starring Charisma Skin tint and Feeling Younger Skin tint, which can be both purchased at Lush at £12 for 20g of product each in a sturdy screw cap pot.
Previously I've reviewed this products sister, Good Things Fresh Start Creamy Cleanser. Now its time for Good Things Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser to take centre stage! As I said in my previous post, I suffer from oily blemish prone skin so the 'Stay Clear' cleanser definitely appealed to me as it claims to cater for this specific skin type.
Here I have Loreal's Colour Riche Quad in Velours Noir. I got this at Boots on offer for £5.99 when it was first released, it retails for around £7.99 but I'm sure you can find one on offer somewhere! Anyway, I was eager to get my hands on beige trench (Which was sold out everywhere!) I came home, slightly disappointed but that was until I opened my beautiful new eyeshadow palette...

Well I've been using MAC's brush cleanser for a few months now, I do try to wash my brushes after whenever I've used them, but you know how it is... sometimes we get a bit lazy!
