So I’m behind on my posts already, sorry! This weekend was so busy as it was my 4th anniversary and yesterday I just felt lazy, but I’m catching up by doing a post today and will be doing another one on Sunday all about gorgeous going out hair, make up and outfits for less (so stay posted for that!)
This post though is all about some of the amazing bargains I got this weekend from my local Boots, New Look sale and also possibly (in my opinion) the best anniversary pressie ever!!!!
The weekend was hectic, but my make up kit was running low on concealer so I made a quick trip to Boots to replenish (plus I love shopping so any excuse I guess). Now I know that Boots can be fairly expensive for a drugstore (more expensive than say Superdrug) but I love their rewards card system and always save up my points (which you get 4 to £1 I think!) for either something big to treat myself or to pay for Xmas pressies, so that is why I am a Boots addict and also a good bargain blogger tip if you haven’t already signed up for the Advantage Card or usually shop elsewhere. Even better than the points per pounds that you get is the vouchers… Boots constantly send me vouchers through the post and you can also pick up other coupons in store, which just keeps me coming back for more and often save you loads or make you money through points. And we all know points mean prizes people 🙂
Anyways, what started off as a quick pop into Boots for concealer ended up with a complete beauty haul and I walked away with 2 nail varnishes (one was half price thanks to a voucher from my colleague), several coloured eyeliners to try out some new looks (a la Shaanxo), a lighter eyebrow pencil with brush lid (which is now my all time new fave eyebrow pencil EVER) a lipstick, lipgloss and of course concealer. I will do reviews of all these products over the next few weeks, but some of these products have already replaced some old faithfuls and of course they all were a bargain. Please comment below if you’d like to see a haul vid with these products in as this could be a good place to start vlogging, wha d’ya think?
So aside from spending so much on more beauty basics, I also popped by the New Look sale. Now I love New Look anyways because they almost always have stuff that I like and usually carry a good range of everyday essentials as well, plus their jeans as so flattering and fit amazingly,
but I’m loving them even more at the moment because this sale is amazing!! I picked up a scuba material shift dress, a black lace topped boxy top and a peach and grey boxy top for next to no money (less than £20 I think) AND all of them fit beautifully. It was so good I might have to go back with more time to have a proper browse!
Anyways the icing on the cake which was my weekend was receiving the most amazing pressie ever from my wonderful boyfriend Andy! He’s always been good at presents and especially loves to get practical gifts, but this time I think he has definitely outdone himself.
I’ve hyped this up so much that you’re all probably going to think I’m really sad to be so excited by this, BUT I looked everywhere for one that I liked and that was cheap but couldn’t find one anywhere, so when I opened this I was ecstatic (I’m also a keen organiser as well as being fashion and beauty and obsessed for those of you that don’t know) This organiser makes getting ready in the mornings so much easier than before when I was using a make up bag. Everything has it’s own draw (currently organised by eyes, lips and face) with essentials like brushes and foundations on the top and ready to go! It’s a really nice size and fits all my current products, but I’m already thinking of purchasing another one to stack on this one as well as a nail varnish top tray! If you want one you can find one similar at the link at the end of this post or just go to eBay and search for make up organiser 🙂 Even better though that the ones which are marketed as Kim Kardashian organisers retail at over £100 but you can pick one of these up for under £20 so grab them while you can!
