Haul: Spring Things

So lately I haven't been buying a lot of clothes. I've started buying less things and trying to find more quality pieces like the dress you'll see for Sunday's post. But just because I'm not buying clothes, doesn't mean I haven't been doing any shopping. I did a little bit of damage to my bank account this past weekend.

All of the things I bought were completely necessary, because I was either running of the things, or felt it was time to switch it up for spring since it's been warm here lately.

First I picked up First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream.

I use Retin-A Micro on a daily basis, so my skin can get very dry, but when I'm using this, no matter the season, my skin feels amazing. I first heard about this brand from FleurDeForce, and she has mentioned her skin leans to the dryer side, so when my skin started getting dry from the Retin-A Micro, I remembered this brand and decided to try it out. I'm so very glad I did. It smells lovely, exactly how you'd expect a skin cream to smell. It's definitely made washing my face one of my favorite parts of the day.

Next I was running low on my body wash I normally use, so I went to Victoria's Secret only to discover that they aren't selling the secret fantasies body washes anymore. So I decided to finally try some products from The Body Shop. They were having a sale, which is awesome because I like to switch up which soap I use each time I shower.

First I picked out this Satsuma gift set which was on sale for $15.60.

It comes with a full sized body wash, a full sized body polish, a mini body butter, a bar of soap, and a bath poof.

I really love citrus scents, all year round, but especially in warmer weather, so I've very excited about this.

Then I picked this blueberry bodywash

because it was on sale for $4.50 and I really love fruit scents in the spring and summer. I think it smells more like pomegranates than blueberries, but I still really like it.

Finally I picked out this strawberry bodywash

which I think is actually my favorite of all of them, because it was recommended to me by my friend Katy. This is the one that she uses, and I can see why, it smells amazing, and I wish I had gotten more stuff from this scent line, but now I know for my next order.

Then I picked up these hair ties*.

I don't know if I've mentioned it recently, but I've been on a mission to grow my hair out again, especially after I cut it so short in 2014. Since my hair is damaged from all the dying and heat styling and everything else I've done to it, I've been sticking to hair ties that are more gentle on your hair.

These scrunchies aren't only gentle, they're also really cute, and have lots of fun different prints. And the little bunny ears/bow is super adorable and perfect for ponytails or buns. I love the bright colors for spring, especially with my current hair color which you will see on Sunday.

I think my favorite prints are either the pink star print one

 or the white and pink polka dot one.

That's everything I've bought recently, have you started switch out your products for spring yet? Or are you holding out for more consistent warmer weather?

*Note: If you order those hair ties you may not get the exact same ones I received as they are a variety pack and will be randomly chosen each time
