Collective Haul: Beauty & Random

Hey Everyone
I'm back! It feels like I haven't sat down and blogged for ages and well, it probably has been ages! I finished my two weeks work experience on Friday and now I have six weeks off for Summer so there will be lots of posts coming your way :) These products are things I've bought over the past few weeks and it has amounted to quite a lot!
How cute are these?! I just could not resist the mug and coaster set...even though it won't be getting much use until Winter when I will be drinking loads of hot chocolate! I just had to get the matching money tin, brilliant for putting my spare pennies in! Also, these floral tissues are really pretty and tissues are always handy to have in your room! All of this is from Tesco :)

Trevor Sorbie Curls & Waves Curl Cream: I'm on the lookout for products to enhance my natural waves and this was the only product that sounded like what I was after when I was looking in boots, so recommendations of products like this please let me know in the comments! 
Umberto Giannini Pure Beauty Shampoo: I got a mini of this for my birthday and after finishing it I finally got round to getting a full size as last time I went they were sold out! Love this, makes my hair feel soft, smooth and healthy. 
Vaseline Spray & Go: This is a new release which I will have a full review of this week so keep your eyes peeled :)
The Body Shop Raspberry Body Butter: This smells really yummy, just like raspberry yogurt! This was super cheap in TBS sale, so I had to get it! 
Two new nail polishes; Barry M 'Pink Silver' which I've wanted for ages, it peeled off really quickly which was disappointing but I didn't use a base coat so that may be why, look out for a NOTD coming soon and Collection gel colour in 'Raspberry' which I currently have on and I've been really impressed by. Finally a Cutex polish remover as Superdrug have 3 for 2 on nails so I picked this up to get for free.
  Nivea SPF 30 Lip Balm: I've been looking for this for ages since it's been so hot recently I wanted a high SPF lip balm to keep my lips protected.
Trilogy Rose hip Oil: Really excited to try this and see how well it works. I will have a full review up once I have tried this enough to notice any results!
Dove Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena scent: I bought this for a post later on this week, it's my favourite scent out of all dove deodorants.
Superdrug Coconut Oil: I'd heard lots of people say this is an excellent cheap product to use as a hair mask or deep conditioner for the ends of your hair so I got this today as I'm always using hair treatments, once again I will definitely have a review of this up once I've used it a few times!

 Finally, I received these two things as a gift from the manager where I worked the past two weeks, a No7 'Ballerina Beauty Purse' containing a sample size day cream and mascara, a little eyeshadow in the shade Forest Fruits and a full size lipstick in Mulberry. Also, Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift, I'm undecided on the scent but I love the bottle it's really pretty!
