On my birthday I headed down to Bluewater to do some retail therapy! I went to to Jamie's Italian for lunch and it was beautiful and the customer service was incredible so I would definitely recommend trying out that restaurant! I knew of a couple of purchases I wanted to make before I even got to Bluewater, one of which was Michael Kors bag. I have wanted for for ages but I wanted one that I was going to use everyday. And I found it! Of course I picked up a couple of beauty bits along the way, would be rude if I didn't.
I was really feeling spendy last Wednesday! Boots is one of my favourite places to shop, I would just walk the stands for hours. I had seen some great reviews of the Collection Eyes Uncovered Palettes so I picked up two of the colour combinations, one in Nude and the other in Nude Bronze. I believe these were around £2.99 which I thought was a bargain. I have tried these palettes and I am pretty impressed so far! Next I picked up the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, I have heard that it a dupe for the Benefit Roller Lash so I thought it would be great to see how they compare. I have mentioned this before in previous posts but I am obsessed with EssieButton. She mentioned the Loreal Brow Artist Plumper and how it was like the Benefit Gimme Brow which I am a big fan off, can't wait to give this a try! And the final make up item was a bit if a splurge, luckily I had a gift voucher so it didn't hurt my bank balance too much and it was the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation. The lady on the counter sold this to me as a high coverage foundation with 16 hour hold which is some pretty big claims.. I will report back on that one!
Next I picked up three mini hair products, the Aussie Three Minute Miracle, Tresemme Heat Protection and the Charles Worthington Colour Shield Spray. Because I dye my hair a lot and use quite a bit of heat on it I thought I would try a new mask and I went for the Bleach London Reincarnation Mask, I have heard incredible things about this one and I cannot wait to use it. I have been hunting high and low for the Aussie Shower gels and I finally found them! I went for the Fresh Mate and it smells so yummy!
I went into Victoria's Secret and actually picked up a top in the sale but it is already in the wash (opps) and they had a deal on where if you spent £10 in store you got a free Pink Bumbag with a pair of sunglasses inside which was worth £17.50 so I thought I would mention that because it is such an incredible deal! While I was in there I noticed that they had an offer on the Pink body products, it was either 2 for £18 for 3 for £25 so I went for the 3 for £25. They are actually £15 each so I thought it was a really good deal. I went for the Relax scent, Warm and Cosy and finally Sweet and Flirty.
And finally for my bigger splurge for the day, I brought my first Michael Kors handbag! I got it from House of Fraser and I believe it is called the Jet Set Mini Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag. It comes in so many different colours but I went for the black because I thought I would get the most use out of it. I am in love with it and I am planning on purchasing the card holder to with it next month when I get paid!
