With several London trips coming up over the next few weeks, I've tried to be pretty careful with my money. But who could resist the call of Boots 3 for 2 cosmetics offers or a little "look" around Primark? Who, I tell you, who?
In Boots I picked up three nail polishes in the 3 for 2. I already have the Rimmel Space Dust polish in Luna Love (which you can read about here) and loved it so much that I had to pick up another one, luckily they had just restocked all the colours in my local Boots so I had the pick of them all so I chose Moon Landing a lovely purple shade. My friend Michelle however, couldn't decide which colour she wanted so bought all five! Secondly I bought two colours based on recommendations from Jaye. I picked up Barry M's Duchess, a lovely glittery gold and Maybelline's Rosy Rosettes, a beautiful red glitter that reminds me of Dorothy's shoes from the Wizard of Oz.
Next stop was Primark where I was looking for THAT red tartan scarf. I'm not really one for keeping up to date with the latest trends, so when I can buy an accessory that doesn't cost as much as buying a top/jumper/coat etc I try to snap it up. Thankfully they had loads of scarves left so once I had secured my little purchase I browsed for a few other bits. I picked up some Christmas earrings to wear at work on Christmas Eve. As I work in a hospital I can't really dress up but the earrings are a nice touch to get into the Christmas spirit and they only cost £1. Also, I couldn't resist the lure of Christmas gloves, they had so many pairs it was difficult to choose but with a number of festive blog meetups planned I thought I'd bring some festive cheer with these Christmas pudding gloves which were only £2. Finally, I bought a boring pair of thick black tights to possibly go with an outfit I have planned for one of the meet ups and a few bits for my blog Secret Santa but I can't tell you about those...!
Have you been shopping recently? Have you bought any festive items?
