day old blues





After my self imposed spending ban in January, I've definitely made up for it this month and had a little bit of a pay day splurge. I got lucky in Topshop and found a lot of pieces I had wanted in the sale, in my size, which is always fate good so I couldn't resist.

I also picked up a few staples that I had run out of - Body Shop eye make up remover, and a new hand cream which smells good enough to eat and was only 75p in the sale! The Crème Brûlée Vaseline made it "big" in the blogger scene recently so I thought I'd give it a try it's honestly not what I expected. It's become my go-to lip product (most likely because the rest are lost in my various bags) but I'm still not 100% I like the taste. I've been telling all of my friends about these cheap (only £1!) Superdrug eyebrow shapers because they're brilliant! Easy to use and just as effective as a salon wax!

OH. And I bought the cat bag I posted about here. How could I not?

What have you been buying this month? I don't feel my spending spree is finished quite yet, so feel free to leave links to try and tempt me into more shopping!

    2. I personally really like L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara, I feel it really grabs my lashes as i'm putting it on and coats them well, leaving them well defined. It costs £8.49 from boots which isn't too bad, I got mine in an offer but I would purchase it at full price. I've also heard good things about the L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara (waterproof). Hope this helps x

    1. They're kind of like wax strips? You just angle them on, and tear off. There's quite a few different shapes in the pack to get the shape you want. It's really easy! x

  13. I really wanted to try the vaseline but I couldn't get my hands on it anywhere :(. I also have those eyebrow shapers and they don't seem to work with me, maybe I'm just not using the right technique haha, I will give them another go! Great post x

    1. I had wanted it for ages too and found a box sneaked away in one of the shelves at the till points in Boots. It did take a little to get used to the technique for the eyebrow shapers but they're really effective, even on dark stubborn hairs like mine! x

  22. I love those big shopping splurges! Such fun! I'm so jealous of the flavoured vaselines. I don't think we have those in Canada. At least, I haven't seen them around....yet!
