Recent Purchases.

It's been a very long time since I've shown you some of the things I've bought but over the past week or so I've done a little bit of shopping for myself in between Christmas shopping and so I thought I would share the few bits I've purchased. 
Let's start with Lush. I'm not a big buyer of Lush as, while I love browsing and going in for a smell, I do sometimes feel it's a waste of money but with it being near Christmas and finding myself having more baths, I treated myself to two things. The first one is The Comforter Bubble Bar which you break a small bit off and run it under the tap to create lots of fruity smelling bubbles. This is something I've been wanting for a while so I can't wait to give it a whirl. The other thing I bought is the So White Bath Bomb; it has such a refreshing scent and is not over complicated with funky colours and glitters. For my mum, I'm putting together a "De-Stress" hamper and so I think I'll give her this bath bomb.
I repurchased my Garnier Simple Essentials Toner. Toner is a step I quite often forget but when I do remember I thank myself later as it really leaves my skin feeling that extra bit clean as well as leaving it soft. This inexpensive one for Garnier does the job for me so I picked up another. 
Maybelline were on 3 for 2 so I picked up 3 Colour Show Nail Varnishes. I think I'll be giving two of them away as presents to my Secret Santa but I'll definitely be keeping the shade Brick Shimmer which is a gorgeous shimmery copper which is a colour I've been looking for and will be wearing for Christmas.
If you've read my blog for a while, I mention a lot that I'm not a fan of lip gloss and because of this I never picked up one of the Tanya Burr releases, plus I actually thought they were fairly expensive. However, they were reduced in Superdrug so I picked up the Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Chic; so far I do like it especially the colour but I do find it slightly sticking but we will see if it grows on me!
The last beauty item is a very expensive one and that's the Illamasqua Skin Base in 3.5. After I bought it, I wasn't sure if I made the right decision spending all that money especially just before Christmas but so far I do like it; it's great for redness and lasts most of the day. I will definitely being a full review in the future if you want me to so let me know!
I've been pretty bad at reading recently so I apologise for there being no Recently Read posts recently but they'll be back in the New Year. I wasn't going to buy anymore books before Christmas but when I was buying a Christmas present and it was buy one get one half price I thought I would buy the prequel to the Maze Runner, The Kill Order by James Dashner. I can't wait to read this and hopefull it will tie up any loose ends left from the last book.

So that's all I've bought! If you're wanting any reviews on any of the products mentioned, let me know!
Hope you're doing great,
