Online collective haul// ASOS, Amazon, Bluebird tea co. etc

online collective haul: ASOS, Amazon, Bluebird tea co etc.
So last haul post I told you I went mad and got really spendy, and it wasn't an exaggeration! I used some of my birthday money to do some online shopping too. I didn't buy this all at once, but I thought I'd combine it into one juicy collective haul :)


First port of call was ASOS. I originally wanted to get some smaller fishnet tights (gipsy) and ankle socks(ASOS) because SS17 and that came to £9, so I thought I'd make up the £20 needed for free shipping with some makeup bits I've been wanting to try.

These fishnets look so cute, but I've somehow managed to rip a hole in the crotch after only wearing them twice... I might try and sew it up so I can get some more wear out of them. I'm so terrible for damaging tights :')
I haven't worn the socks out yet, but they're super cute and I definitely will when the weather warms up a little :) I'm a little wary of baring my legs, but I've got the perfect outfit in mind so I'm just going to try and go for it anyway.

This amazing lilac colour from WAH London (called Mating Surfaces, hehe) was discounted from £9 to like £5, so I had to pick it up. I've had so many compliments on it, too! 

The silver molten metal nail paint and all in one base/top coat from Barry M are things I know I'll get tonnes of use out of, as silver glitter is my go-to nail colour and I've just used up my base coat anyway.

And the NYX soft matte lip cream in Monte Carlo is something I'd wanted to try out for a while- can you believe it's my first liquid lipstick? I looove the colour, and while it's not intensely drying, I've found it tends to wear off a little strangely. I want to road test this at home a little more before I wear it out for a long day.


Two of the things I bought from Amazon were imports from Japan. Japanese people take sun protection seriously (suntans are actually not fashionable there) so their sunscreen is amazing. As it's getting a little sunny here again, I thought I'd pick up my go to Kosé one from lastyear (I reviewed it in my Japanese skincare essentials post) as you can get it on Amazon for like £8, I definitely wanted to buy this again instead of trying my luck with random (and potentially greasy/ breakout inducing) ones. 

Japanese pens are also really nice and thin, so I decided to treat myself to a new one to make my Kanji look nicer. It's 0.5mm and has 4 different colours... no regrets.

I also repurchased the Makki professional hair colouring mask in Grey (which I reviewed the other month) and it's what I've been using to dye my hair grey. I looove it~ Excited to redye my hair with it~ ((also you can follow my insta @candyflossoverkill for grey hair pics)).

Bluebird tea co tea club

I decided to try out Bluebird Tea Company's tea subscription club for a while! I've had some of their teas before as a present from my cousin, and I thought it was a nice thing to treat myself to each month. I probably won't keep it going for too long, because NGL £7 for three small sachets of tea isn't the cheapest, but the ones I received this month (Hot cross bun: divine! really smells and tastes like hot cross buns! Chinese Treasures: a green tea which is perfect for me. Easter Egg Nests: chocolatey goodness which even has real marshmallows!) were amazing!

The houseplant obsession continues... This was another online plant delivery from Waitrose garden, and it just arrived, and I get the hype around rubber plants, guys. It was pretty affordable, and it's just sooo pretty and sculptural!! Sadly the pot I chose doesn't quiiiite fit, but that's a problem for another day I think.

Anyway. thanks for reading!
