Todays Haul (Very picture heavy!)

Hi all,

I haven't done a post in a while due to being extremely busy with work. I've also been very short on cash this month, we are off to Legoland Windsor with the kids in August and have decided to stay over in London for a couple of days. I know how expensive London is so we are saving every penny we can for when we go cause I'd like to do a bit of shopping whilst I'm there also :-) 

So due to my lack of money I haven't been into town for a while as it just kills me to walk past all the lovely make up and not be able to buy anything but I had some money through Top Cashback come through so decided to go and have a mini shopping trip. It was only £30.00 but at least I could get a few bits, I have to say I'm rather happy with my purchases

Here is what I bought, first up I went into Bodyshop for a little browse and spotted these for £2.00 each so I snapped them up, the shampoo was actually chosen by my son, he stood smelling everything in sight and decided that this smelled the best so wanted it and for £2.00 I couldn't say no. I needed a new toner anyway so hopefully this Cucumber Freshening Water will do the trick!

Next up I popped into Superdrug and picked up these.

I went in for the Garnier Pure Wash, I was looking online this morning and saw this so I wanted to give it a try. It was only £1.95 so if its horribly bad for my skin its not cost me much.

Then I spotted that the Accessorize make up was on offer, so I picked up this eyeshadow trio for £2.95   and its called The Good & The Bad, its so pretty

These masks were in the clearance section and were 99p each, they have up to 10 uses so I grabbed two considering a sachet is normally around £1 for 1 use.

Next up I popped to the market style make up shop near me and spotted this Smooch bronzer, it was only £2.99 so I had to get it as it looked so pretty. I currently have about 8 bronzers on the go and have no need for this whatsoever but I challenge anyway to walk past this and not buy it!

I then popped into H&M to pick up some black leggings, I really love the quality of them from H&M and they beat any other high street shop I have found for leggings and for £5.99 you can't go wrong. They also had a sale on some bits and pieces so I grabbed a few 

Everything (apart from the leggings) was £1

This is a cute little Mickey and Minnie mouse compact mirror. 

Set of 3 mini nail polishes (for just over 33p per polish I couldn't leave these behind!)

In case you can't guess from the photo this is a Cassis Noir Lipbalm and it smells DIVINE!!

Theres also a set of 2 Mickey and Minnie Lipbalms in Cherry & Vanilla but the picture wouldn't upload for some reason but they were also £1.00

And finally, I popped into Aldi, yes Aldi! I have run out of my usual moisturiser which sets me back £40, I can't afford that at the moment so asked around for some cheaper alternatives and someone suggested I try the Lacura range at Aldi so I went in to take a look and they had day and night creams for a bargainous £1.99 each, I really hope this stuff suits me as it will save me a small fortune!

I also grabbed a Lacura eyeshadow duo whilst I was there. Again it was only £1.99 and they are so pigmented. My only issue is that there is ALOT of packaging for just an eyeshadow duo but I will look past this as the colours are so pretty :-)

I'll do some reviews on the individual products once I have had a chance to try them out, I'm so hoping to come back to you with fantastical things to say about the creams, keep your fingers crossed for me ladies!

See you all soon!

Lots of Love
