Pre-Holiday Hauling

*I wrote this post pre-holiday but completely forgot to photograph for it so it's going up a little late- sorry girls!*

What better excuse to justify a little shopping than 'I need it for my holiday'? Not that it takes much for me to loosen those purse strings anyway. Two weeks of beach living in Thailand and only one bikini, even those not so versed in girly maths know that that is never going to work out. Cue hours of online perusing before a small bounty of parcels were on their way to me, obligatory beauty purchases included.

First up my hunt for a semi-fashionable one piece led me to Aussie brand Sheridyn Swim where I came across this. An orange ensemble with a colourful patchwork top, perfect for after I've been tucking in to banana and nutella pancakes (a Thai speciality) and daren't let the tummy out. On sale for only $19.90 (even cheaper with codeword 'Karissa') it was quite the find.

Two more bikini tops were scouted out in the ASOS sale, one from Pour Moi and one ASOS own. As was this gorgeous dress. One I haven't quite though of an occasion to rock just yet by who could resist the $60 discount?!

Now this wouldn't be an Anna Blush haul without some beauty thrown in so here's a look at my most recent Feel Unique and Naturisimo purchases. From Feel Unique some inflight beauty essentials (can you tell I've been watching this Lisa Eldrige video?) in the form of Phyto 7's Hydrating Day Cream and Caudalie's Beauty Elixir, limited edition packaging and all. Whilst browsing the pages of Naturisimo I had a slight cleanser moment and managed to stumble through the checkout with two in tow. Balance Me's Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm and Bio-Cellular Super Cleanse from Elemental Herbology, both balmy type offerings in handy tube packaging, perfect for my upcoming travel. Now I just need to decide which one to pack...


  1. The Balance Me face balm is great- I have it and I love it!
