Collective Haul: Burberry, Alexander McQueen, etc.

Send help, guys. I did it again. I wanted to save so badly, so that I could buy the Mulberry Alexa at the end of this year, but I relapsed. That being said, I might as well show you what I got!
Disclaimer: Those things here were not bought in one go. They were purchased over a time span of... 2 weeks.

After losing my other McQueen scarf last year, I was heartbroken. Silk scarves and wind do not go well together! Somehow I lost it on my way to school and I contemplated going back and searching for it, but I had a maths exam that I couldn't be late for, so I kept walking. Worst day of my life.
Well, luckily I have a new one, and this one is made of cotton and cashmere (I think!), so it's a lot heavier than the other one and isn't as easy to lose.

I discovered a thrift shop in Frankfurt called Ephiphany and I'm so thankful that I found it because it's the best! I found this Burberry jacket for merely 80€ or so, and I couldn't be happier. I admit, I had quite the dilemma because I had to choose between a gorgeous Diane von Furstenberg top and that jacket but I'm glad my friend urged me to get the jacket. It's such a classic piece that I'm going to love and cherish forever.

These shoes from Zara were also bought from a thrift shop, though I've forgotten what the name was.
I think they're pretty cool and they match my new scarf.

The products from The Body Shop are my favourites, so getting the body butter is a must for me. I have always used the strawberry one, but this time I wanted to try the mango version for a change and while I was in the shop, I decided to get the lip balm as well. 
Then me and my friend went to Yves Rocher and got that grapefruit body wash since it was 20% off. Yay bargain!
Due to my obsession with my hair, I also got those two little bottles of salt spray from Bumble and Bumble and a bottle of conditioner from Syoss.

I've been quite obsessed with flower crowns lately, so I bought this hair band via ebay and it's Glamour Shopping Week soon, which is why I bought the newest issue of the German Glamour.

I found those two palettes from Sleek in the mail today and I couldn't be any more chuffed! They're very pigmented and the colours stayed on my lid the entire day, so I really recommend them to everyone, even though I'm sure the majority already know them.
I got the "Storm" palette and the "Vintage Romance" one.

I hope you like all the things that I got!
