Funnily enough I didn't think that I would be typing this Boots haul up today. I had a little dilemma yesterday as I couldn't actually find my Boots bag. I had a little panic, thinking I had lost it in town. I think I drove myself completely doolally. Thankfully I hadn't lost it. Josh had found it lying around upstairs somewhere. Oh, the relief when I found out it hadn't got lost. I think I would've cried a little, haha.
Anyway, throughout my pregnancy money was tight to say the least. It was spent on essentials such as nappies, food, clothing and furniture and other bits and pieces for Alfie's nursery room. It's to be expected when you have a baby on the way and a new home right? I'm now in that mind frame where I would rather spend my last pennies on him than myself. But lately I've felt like treating myself, especially now things are a lot more easier money wise now that Alfie is here and the house is completely refurbished.
So during a recent shopping trip I found myself wandering into the likes of Boots and leaving the store with a bag full of beauty bits and a smaller purse. There's nothing wrong with splashing out a little cash on yourself every once in a while is there? Every mummy deserves to pamper and treat themselves.
I ran out of my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation a few weeks ago and so decided to repurchase it again. It's one of my favourite drugstore foundations. It doesn't completely conceal but it has pretty good coverage and it gives my skin a slight luminous glow. I love this stuff! I'd repurchase it again and again.
Another repurchase is the blogger favourite Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I've lost count on how many tubes of this I've been through. It's the holy grail of concealers that I've tried. I picked up the shade 'fair' as it's fairly close to my skin tone and it conceals those pesty spots and scars incredibly well.
The L'Oreal Superliner Ultra Precision is yet another repurchase. I bought this a few months ago and fell completely in love with it. It's so easy to control, the nibs not flimsy like other liquid liners I've tried and it creates the perfect feline flick.
My hair seems to have a mind of its own. I can never grow my hair past my shoulders. Anyone struggle with this? It's so annoying. I am craving for long locks so badly! I no longer have my hair extensions and I gave up on the hair dye, hoping that it'll help my locks grow. I came across the Hair Growth Shampoo, Conditioner and Treatment from Lee Stafford for a 3 for 2 deal and I have high hopes. Hopefully, they'll meet my expectations. Fingers crossed!
I couldn't resist picking up 3 of the newest Max Factor Creme Puff Blushers after reading countless reviews in the blogosphere, especially as they were compared to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders AND they were 3 for 2. They are so so beautiful when swatched. I can't wait to start using them.
