Some cheeky purchases.

Wednesday, 16 May 2012


So this is what happens when you go into town to meet a friend...... your friend has to go and you decide to browse! I literally used my last £20 to buy all this , thankfully I get paid this Friday! I also blame reading blogs and watching Youtube videos for this little splurge (Can you call it a splurge when you spend £20?)

The other day I was watching Louises beauty haul video, while watching all I could think was 'Her makeup looks really nice in this video' Then she mentioned that the products she had been using were the new BB Cream and primer from Loreal. Now I hadnt delved into the BB Cream fad before but it was something that interested me and I dont have a primer at the moment so I thought why not! Boots had a deal on where you could both of them for £14 rather than paying the £9.99 each so I figured it was a decent deal and swiftly added them into my basket.

The 17 mirror shine lipsticks were not something I planned to get, however after picking up the Loreal products I headed over to the Advantage card machines to have a look if I had any coupons that I could use... I was offered one coupon where I would earn 200 extra advantage card points if I spent £20...(so I knew I needed to spend a little more cash) Clicking through the other offers, I found one which was buy one get one free on the mirror shine lipsticks... Beehive was a favourite of mine (its actually the only lipstick I have ever finished!) So I figured, why not pick it up again and try out another shade.... which in this case was Belle.
I was still under the £20 mark so I picked up a new hand sanatizer as I had run out and then a bottle of coke... Meaning that after all my coupons were put through the till and the offers validated my total came to £20.29. I saved myself £11ish according to my reciept which I was pretty happy about!

I always forget to check my offers with the advantage card machines. Thinking about it I have probably missed out on some really good deals in the past by not doing so! I will def be making sure I check my coupons on those machines before I shop next time!

Much Love
