Today's Haul

I have been very naughty and purchased some new goodies that i probably should not have done.  I do have an excuse (kind of). Firstly i received £15 worth of L'Oreal vouchers as i bought my usual Telescopic Mascara which had no product in when i opened it! After sending it back they sent me vouchers in return through the post which were a little more than the mascara so i could not let them go to waste and purchased some other lovely things which then led to buying some other bits and bobs.

So here is what i got,

So due to the vouchers i got a few L'Oreal things as they also had 3 for 2 on.
L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara in Magnetic Black. I find that L'Oreal mascaras are great but have not tried this particular one out as i bought a stockpile of Lash architect 4D mascara a few months ago because they had an offer on. I am keen to try this as it has a plastic brush which is different to my usual mascara. I have used plastic brush ones before (i can not remember which brand) and hated it as it kind of flicked back and me and got mascara everywhere so keen to try this one out and see if it works well for me.

I then bought two nail varnishes from the Colour Riche collection in number 601, French Riviera and number 202, Marie Antoinette. I have never fried L'Oreal nail varnishes out so i am keep to give them ago. I have Terrible nails at the moment, they have all snapped off and turned flaky so i am hoping they grow again and i can have myself some beautiful talons (unlikely).

Next i got the Studio Secrets universal lip glow. I know i read about this somewhere and could not remember if it was good or bad so tried to Google it on my phone while in Boots - my internet on my Blackberry was so slow the shop assistant in boots came over to ask if i was OK so i just gave up and bought it.

So i went to the counter and purchased these goods which all came up to £10 after i cashed my vouchers in and used some boots points which was a bargain and they gave me a £5 voucher! I instantly went to No7 and got a nail varnish for £2 in the colour Betty Blues then i remembered i needed conditioner so went searching for some. On a pretty stand i found L'Oreal Elvive Nutri-gloss crystal shampoo and conditioner  which comes in a pink bottle and the shampoo is glittery so had to grab that too (i am a sucker for anything pink or glittery). I got another No7 voucher but put it in my purse this time because the guy in boots was looking at me like i was crackers by this point.

I then nipped to a cheap shop in my little town that sells the most random things ever, i got some nail varnish remover (essential) and some pads and at the till there were Rimmel Mono eye shadows for 39p in the colour Frivolity - So i grabbed two. I would not wear pink on my eyes but thought it might work as a blush highlight as it has a little bit of glitter in it.

After this i got myself home as quickly as possible because my purse was getting very light and i am rather poor at the moment. I start a new job next week so will soon have more pennies to buy more pretty things which excites me greatly - i am super fed up of buying things like paint and washing machines.

As this is a brand new blog i have decided that i am going to do a little give away once i reach 20 subscribers. I will be giving away one of the Rimmel eye shadows and a brand new No7 nail varnish in the colour of your choice, OoOo.

Will be posting back here soon with some reviews and stuffs so please subscribe :)

Lots of love,


  1. Hi Kerri,

    Haha, you sound exactly like me! I'm such a hoarder, and I'm instantly attracted to anything sparkly or pretty! Also walk around googling items on my phone - makes shopping trips 10x longer! Have to say, very jealous of that little eyeshadow you got for 39p - looks lush!

    Happily followed xx

  2. I love the nail colours. Great post!
