Beauty Haul #2

Hey guys, recently I've been moving into my new house, and along with a lot of home-ware shopping, I've been beauty/clothes shopping too for my new place! Next week I'll be posting a massive homeware shop I did and I will film around, once I've got everything sorted.

These were all really good buys, I love them! Boots is having a 3 for 2 sale as well so I managed to save £12.48 on these.
I hope you all have a nice weekend!

London Fashion Week - Bora Aksu

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to go to the Bora Aksu fashion show as a guest of the British Fashion Council. I loved the entire details put into the show to work with his feminine garments. The intricate handmade detailing in the pieces were so delicate and pretty. Bora Aksu is definitely one of my current favourite designers.
After the show I was taken to the lounge where I had a talk from Andrew Tucker, who shared his experiences that he has had through attending around 40 fashion week shows. It was really interesting to hear about his way into the industry, as he originally started as a designer.

After a hectic day, I eventually got back home for my Valentine's Day evening. Hope you guys all had a lovely week!
