Weekend Special: Haul.

19 Jan 2014

So this is my first 'Weekend Special' posts. These won't be every weekend but may go up if there's something small that I'd like to share with you as a little extra just like this haul!Since Christmas, I've done a little bit of shopping; I sadly didn't manage to get to the Boxing Day sales so it's not a massive haul but I've got a few little bits that I would feel like I'm betraying you if I don't share my purchases! So here is the few little things I've bought recently.

The only thing I bought from boots was the Soap & Glory Hand Food (£2.50). I actually bought 3 of thee just to take advantage of the 3 for 2 and I know I'll use it up!

When buying beauty products and I can get them from Superdrug because either they are the same price or cheaper there and also, I feel, they have a lot more choice of brands at Superdrug but anyway the reason I went in to Superdrug was to get a few bits for a post but also I wanted to try out a new mascara.
Seeing as so many people seem to love it, I thought I would try the Maybelline The Rocket Mascara (£7.99). I'm not too sure whether I like it yet; it takes me a while to get used to a mascara so we'll see!
The next thing I got was the Maybelline Baby Lips in 'Hydrate'(£2.99). I have already have the Baby Lips in 'Cherry Me' but I thought I'd try a new one.
I also bought the Garnier Moisture Match moisturiser (£2.98) as my dry skin has got worse as we've got more into winter. I see GlitterALittle rave about this a lot being her favourite moisturiser so I thought I'd give it a go!
Last thing I bought from Superdrug was the Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner (£2.99) as I thought, as small beauty resolution, it would be better for my hair to actually condition at least the ends of my hair to keep my healthy so I picked up one that I've heard good things about and I thought, as a starter, I would just pick up the travel sized bottle.

The Body Shop.
When I was down in Essex for the New Year and when we had a day shopping, we went into the Body Shop where I'm not a regular customer but I love their products and I couldn't resist when there was some offer like buy 4 items and get 40% so me and my mum went a little crazy. I bought a gift set for £5 which was the Mango butter butter and lip balm. I used to have the Grapefruit lip balm and I loved it so I thought I'd get that. I then bought two shower gels- a passion fruit one and a papaya. We are big fans of the body shops in our house and always have one of the mega sized shower gel bottles in the showers but I saw these two and they smelt like the amazing tropical smelling shower gels that I love so of course I bought these!

I was in desperate need of a new purse as I've had one from New Look since I was about 12 and I still love it but it was time for a change and I thought this purse from Asos (£15) would invite a little colour into my handbag. I'm keeping this short as I've got a What's in My Bag post coming up in the next month so include more information and pictures in there.
I also have been wanting some above the knuckle rings and when these were £5 for I thought it was a steal. Unfortunately though they aren't above the knuckle as they'd old out of the small sized ones. However, I love them all the same as they sit comfortably just under more knuckle and I know I'll be getting a lot of wear out of them.

Hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you're doing great,
