Drugstore Essentials Haul

Drugstore Essentials

I know I fell of the face of the planet for a bit there, but I’m back! I have been super busy viewing houses around working, but (not to jinx anything) I think that might be over soon… I did manage to do a bit of essential shopping though and I’m going to share that with you today.

Forever Haulin’ ft. Lush, Black Milk Clothing, Superdrug & More!

Forever Haulin

As I said in my last haul, (which was uhm, only two weeks ago…) I have been very much enjoying having some money to my name as this is my first month with full time pay. I have definitely gotten a bit carried away, but with all these new bits I should be set for a while. Hopefully this will have gotten it out my system. (She says doubtfully, eyeing her online Superdrug basket)

Pay Day Haulin’

PayDayHaul

I have to confess, this being my first proper full time pay cheque in well over a year, I did get a tad carried away. (The triple points offer at Boots didn’t help!) But at the same time, I stocked up on some essentials and definitely deserved a few treats. After all, I have been working hard!

Empties 5

Empties 5

As I was moving house, I have made a big effort to use up my half empty products to save on space. I was pretty successful so have broken this up into a couple of sections to make it easier to read. But you may still wish to grab a cup of tea and settle in for a long one!

Birmingham Haul!

Birm Haul

On Tuesday, my godmother, mum and I went on a shopping trip to the Bull Ring in Birmingham. We’d been planning the trip for a month or so, but as I’m moving I didn’t have quite as much money as I’d have liked. But that didn’t stop me from getting spendy!

Clothing Haul! ft. New Look, H&M & Dorothy Perkins

clothing haul

Before we get on to what I bought, I’d like to share a couple of pieces of important news with you all. First of all, I have been offered a new job! I’ve got a temporary contract an hour’s drive from me, where I’ll finally be able to start my career as a graphic designer! I am of course very very pleased and although I don’t start til March thanks to a long notice period and a pre-booked holiday, some of the things I bought were with office/studio dress code in mind. The second thing is that my beloved macbook is heading off to Apple for a couple of days for some repairs! (thankfully just within the extended warranty period I took out when I bought it!) Although I have access to another mac, this may affect my ability to keep up with the blog, so I just thought I’d let you all know, as I have otherwise been very good at keeping up with my posting schedule this month. That’s also the main reason why today’s post is a day late – after a hectic day, I finally finished writing this up at 11pm!

Beauty Essentials Haul

eseentials

Yet another beauty haul, yet more Lush products! What can I say? I’m a bit addicted! In all honesty though, I worked a lot of overtime through Nov & Dec, so I’m enjoying being able to splurge a little and treat myself. But I am now well and truly stocked up on beauty things, so from next pay day I am going to be cutting right back and start saving up for a holiday. Keep reading

Christmas Beauty Haul

So this is a bit of an odd post in some ways, as I was going to post a ‘What I Got For Christmas/Birthday’ thing, but have been working a lot (yay retail at xmas…) and predominantly got books & dvds. I am very pleased with everything I got*, but I don’t want to bore you all with them. Then I went sale shopping & found nothing in most stores, so I have combined those beauty items with the others for one picture heavy beauty post!

*except maybe a christmas cake liquer I got for my birthday. I’m scared to try it.

10 Christmas Gifts Under £10

Gift List

We all know that Christmas can be an expensive time of year. I personally have 12 people to buy for as well as several friends and family members’ birthdays in the surrounding months. Budgeting is therefore very important and trying to find a great gift on a budget can be really difficult. So I have put together this little list of some cool gift ideas I have found for £10 or less. I hope you’ll forgive the 25p over spend on the last item!

Beauty Haul & Spending Ban

I guess I should really call this post ‘Beauty Haul Plus Gifts From Mum’ because it also includes some items my mum picked up for me whilst she was in France last week. Lucky me! I’ve picked these bits and bobs up over the past few weeks, some of which were at a great price.

Beauty Haul! Ft. Boots & Sainsbury’s

So this month I told myself that I didn’t really need any more beauty products and that I’d keep my money to sort my car out (MOT time!) and for going to Comic Con. Comic Con hasn’t happened yet, but the MOT went surprisingly well, so, inevitably, I went shopping.

Best Micellar Water: Garnier vs Botanics vs Nivea

IMG_1779

I know I promised a comparison post of the Botanics Micellar Water and the Garnier Micellar Water ages ago, but it seemed worth waiting to add the Nivea one into the mix after I got it in last month’s Glossybox. (See my post about that incredible box here). So here it is at last!

Beauty Haul! Ft. Fragrance Direct, The Body Shop & Boots

Yesterday was my first pay day in almost a year and a half! I might only be working part time, but seeing some money actually going into my bank account was incredibly exciting (and a rarity since finishing uni) so I decided to go do some shopping. I’ve split this into sections so you can see what I got from each shop.

Fragrance Direct

Fragrance Direct is an online shop, which sells a wide range of beauty products at discounted rates. Over the weekend, they had a free shipping offer which I took advantage of. Standard shipping is meant to take 5-7 working days and I got mine in 4. Very impressed! And everything was well packaged too, so it’s definitely worth checking them out. Here’s what I got:

Whilst in town last week, I was lucky enough to receive a free sample of the new Benefit They’re Real Push Up Gel Eyeliner. I’ve heard good things about this product so couldn’t wait to give it a go! Here’s what I thought:
