Metamorphosis and Other Stories by Franz Kafka & The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. £8.99 each, WHSmith. 
I popped to WHSmith today and bought these two books. My sister has been recommending the Psychopath Test to me for a while so I picked that up, along with a Kafka book. Really looking forward to reading these!

Rimmel Apocolips in Celestial and Apocoliptic. £5.99 each, Boots.
Rimmels Apoclips are one of those products that absolutely everyone has been raving about, so I had to grab a couple last time I was in Boots. They apply like a lip gloss but are ridiculously pigmented and not at all sticky. Celestial is a perfect, gorgeous pink shade and Apocoliptic is a deep red. I think I'm going to be getting a lot of use out of these.

L'Occitane Shea Honey Hand Cream. £8.00, L'OCCITANE en Provence.
I adore L'Occitane Hand Creams and I added this honey scented one to my collection recently. It smells amazing and is the perfect size for popping in my handbag.

MAC Plumful lipstick. £14.00, Selfridges.
A girl can never have too many MAC lipsticks! I grabbed this one on a whim while out shopping the other day. It's a really wearable medium pinky-plum shade that applies quite sheer, so it's perfect for everyday.

B. Pure Micellar Water. £4.99, Superdrug.
I love using micellar water to remove makeup, and this one by B. Pure is less than half the price of the likes of more popular brands like Bioderma and Vichy. I'm not completely blown away by this product but it works okay and I think is worth picking up for the price tag alone.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum. £29.00, Space.NK.
I've had this on my wish list since receiving a sample of it a while ago, and I finally gave in and bought it on a visit to Space.NK a couple of weeks ago. I use this before applying moisturiser and it makes such a difference to my skin! It absorbs really quickly and leaves my skin feeling a lot softer. It also smells fantastic and a little goes a really long way, so I imagine the bottle lasting a while.

Lee Stafford Argan Oil. £11.99, Boots.
I've tried a million different hair oils and always come back to this. I love the smell, and it works wonders on both wet and dry hair. I can imagine repurchasing this for a long time.

Lomography La Sardina Camera. £18.00 (with student discount), Urban Outfitters.
I've had my eye on this camera for a while, and when I spotted it in the UO sale for £20 (as opposed to the £60+ price tag they usually carry) I couldn't resist buying it. I'm still waiting for the perfect day to take this out and shoot my first roll of film, but I'll be sure to post the results here when I do!
