Forever 21 Mini Haul~

Okay, so I've watched a few haul videos in the past and have a vague idea of what's meant to happen and all that, but should I stray from the point, I deeply apologise. ><

I am really quite happy with Forever 21 at the moment. I was really quite worried, because I only made my order 2 days ago and according to the site I had missed the last orders for Christmas post, so was kind of sad I'd have to wait til after, but then, was pleasantly surprised when I received a text (they text shipping updates to you - how awesome is that?) saying I would get it this morning! I don't care what people say about Forever 21 being 'the American version of Primark', as they're already miles better in my book. Now let's get to the stuff.

See what I mean by mini? I literally just wanted to buy those bows as part of Annie's xmas present, but then decided I might as well take full advantage of postage costs as well, so yeah...

As I said, I got these for my friend Annie for Christmas as I know she's quite a fan of bows. I really like the watercolour-y ones at the top; they're really soft and cute and I just love the colour! The black and blue sparkly ones are also quite nice, but I don't know, I just prefer the other one really. Had there been more options of colours, I wouldn't have bothered with the bottom two to be honest, but meh, they're still nice anyway.

This was part of their sale and I just thought 'eh, why not' and went for it. I must say, I was quite worried that it wouldn't fit me as a few hair bands I've tried in the past have been far too loose for my head and I end up better suiting children's hair things, but, thankfully, it fits, and quite comfortably at that, so I'm happy. Also, something I'd like to point out, the quality is actually really good for it's price, so I don't see why people keep on comparing F21 to Primark, they're sooo much better! Had I gotten this in Primark, the studs probably would have been plastic or really light and cheap, but this doesn't feel that way at all, so I'm sorry Primark, but it's F21 all the way with me.

This was really just a random buy to bulk up the order a bit and was also part of the sale section. They're a little flimsy to be honest, and the one on the left has a gem missing, but oh well, I'm not exactly going to cause a fuss over it. They were, after all, only 99p...

By the way, don't even bother asking about the colour configuration; simply put, I was too lazy. Anyway, I've been looking for a waist belt recently but hadn't been able to find one reasonably priced or well fitting or nice looking. Until I saw this. Now, anyone that knows me will know I'm a HUGE star fanatic, so this skinny waist belt with cut out stars is just so perfect for me! And it doesn't feel super cheap AND it fits me nicely, SO, I'd say this purchase was quite a win. ^^

So that's what I bought. I would say more, but then it would turn into a review rather than me just showing off my new stuff (or is it already a review? i don't even know!). I will, however, just like to mention, that this is my fourth time ordering from Forever 21, and I am always very pleased with their service and would highly recommend it to anyone liking a good bargain and receiving text messages about when their package is going to arrive. =3

Oh, and one more thing! The Forever 21 online sale is still currently happening, so go have a look, there's tons of really great stuff!

PS.: should i put the links up to all the stuff i bought? i can't really be bothered, to be honest, but if anyone wants links then just let me know and i'll add them. took me ages to go through all the stuff on the site, so if anything here has caught your fancy, better get the link off me than to go scrolling for years to look for it!
