Recent Buys

2/17/2012





Shameless little filler post here as I've done nothing this week but work and shop. If you don't know already I do actually have a full time job so only having two days a week to get anything done blogging wise is a little tricky. I usually prepare a few little reviews and short posts for the week but thanks to a recent spending ban (that I might have accidentally broken today) I haven't really bought anything worth sharing!

These are a few bits I picked up frantically on my lunch break today. Half an hour to shop and eat is not enough so its usually one or the other! All the offers in Boots were ending soon so I took advantage of a few of those. A lot of the hair care brands were 3 for 2 so I finally caved and got the Lee Stafford Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner. I love my actual Moroccanoil versions of these but they're just too expensive to keep buying! Hopefully these will be just as good! I also got the Cashmere Cushion blow dry solution which is supposed to boof up your hair while still making is nice and soft. I've lost a lot of volume since growing out all my layers so I'll try anything thats going to give my hair that extra bit of body. Love the smell of all this too!

L'Oreal was also on offer at buy one get one half price so I got a lipstick and the Lumi Magique Primer from their new luminising range. I've been eying up Lancôme's Éclat Miracle for a while now and this is an absolutely perfect dupe for it. Considering Lancôme and L'Oreal are the same company it's probably exactly the same product in both! It's a little bit like High Beam but white instead of pink. I definitely suggest trying this out if you can find one because it is absolutely beautiful!

Had a bit of a Lush splurge as well. I always feel compelled to pick up everything I see when I walk in there and it doesn't help when the sales assistant is giving you a heavenly hand massage with nothing but a bar of soap. No wonder I buy everything they tell me to! I managed to get my hands on the limited edition Magic Mushroom bubble bar and then picked up some recent favourites; a few Butterballs and a King of Skin.

Last of all I went and got myself another slouchy knit jumper from New Look, not that I needed any more! It's very similar to the Topshop one I posted about in a recent wishlist as it's quite lightweight so great for either layering or wearing alone. Purchase justified.

Has anyone else been breaking their spending bans this month?
