I've been spending money, yet again!

I bought a lot of the following things weeks ago, but I never got round to posting about them!

Boots - 17 Wild Metallics cream eyeshadow in Wild Nude - £3.99
I rarely wear eyeshadow, but I thought this would slowly ease me into wearing it because it's a subtle, day time shade.

eBay (Joy017) - NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha and NYX Concealer in a Jar in Green - Around £3.50 including P&P and around £5.40 including P&P
I've been using the Jumbo Eye Pencil on my lower lash line and then applying a taupe eyeshadow over the top. I needed another green concealer, so I thought I would try this :) I highly recommend this eBay seller. Great prices and fast delivery from America.

The Body Shop - Inflatable Bath Pillow and Vitamin E Facial Cleansing Bar - Originally £8 and £3
The Body Shop had yet another discount code floating around (this time it entitled you to 30% off) so I thought it was the perfect time to get what I needed. The bath pillow is one of my dad's Christmas presents. He's really hard to get for, so I tend to buy him things I know he'll get a lot of use out of. The cleansing bar is my favourite cleanser and is my third one!

Claire's Accessories - Ladybird and fish earrings - £3.50 and £6.50
I love the ladybird earrings and have been wearing them a lot recently, which makes a change because I haven't worn earrings in over a year. The fish earrings are part of my sister's Christmas present :)

H&M - Basic cardigans - £9.99 each
I was looking for some basic blue cardigans for ageesss, so was delighted to see some in H&M for a great price. These have been getting a lot of wear because blue is my favourite colour.

Primark - Thick tights - £3 (I also bought some other thick cotton tights, which were down to £1.90)
I am really impressed with these tights! They're very opaque. A lot of tights I've tried in the past haven't been very opaque once they've stretched around your legs.

I've also just got a new bed (my Christmas present from my parents). For it, I've bought a new duvet, two duvet cover sets and two fitted sheets. I still need to buy some new pillows, a valance, lamp and fairy lights. Here is a phone camera snap shot of one of the duvet covers:

It's from Tesco and was £13.



  1. What a lovely haul! You've just reminded me that I need to pick up the 17 Wild Metallics cream eyeshadow next time I'm in Boots, thanks lovely x

  2. Great haul- I think the cat approves of the duvet! xx

  6. I know exactly what you mean about tights! I have about a million pairs in my drawer that weren't thick enough when I put them on haha :) x

  12. I love the idea of the bath pillow, i had no idea they existed but it's definitely something I need (well, want!) xx

  13. I bought those tights as well.They are sooo thick! Really comfortable, and they will last longer than the cheaper ones, because they aren't going to rip!!

  14. Great haul, love the look of the 17 eyeshadow :) xx

  15. I love the Body shop vitamin E moisturiser, I have never seen the cleansing bar before! From the sound of this post, I assume you would recommend it :-)

    It looks like someone is enjoying your new bed :-) If its anything like my cats and bed, it will not be long before its muddy.


  16. Lovely haul! Heard so many good things about the 17 cream eye shadow, definitely gonna get one for myself (: x
