It’s been a good while since I’ve talked about beauty on my blog and although I’d say I’m not quite so heavily invested in the topic as I once was, writing this post also made me remember just how much I still love it. ! I was lucky enough to receive a few Mecca gift cards for my birthday and Christmas last year (the people in my life sure do know me well!), so it was the perfect time to finally cross off all those things that had been on my wishlist and do a little bit of splurging. I realise that last year was quite some time ago now and my intention was to get this post up way back in January, but it’s been really, really difficult dedicating time to my blog this year (I’ll explain why in another post). You know how the saying goes though, better late than never, right?! While this is a reasonably sized haul, as I mentioned, this was all bought last year and I actually haven’t bought a single new product at all in 2019! I know that hauls are quite frowned upon these days and I’m not all that much into them myself anymore either, but since this is my first one in a very long time, I figured kicking it back old school with a good old-fashioned beauty haul would be a bit of fun!
