Little after work shopping trip

Happy Saturday all! Hope your weekend is going well. I was stuck in work until 4pm today (Grrr!) but I’ve booked all next week off – HURRAH!! I don’t actually have anything planned other than looking after my adorable nephew, shopping, reading and watching TV. As far as I’m concerned the best time off is the kind where you aren’t obliged to do anything at all :)

Popped into town and did a little shopping after work today and just wanted to mention a couple of the things I picked up. I wore 5 inch wedge heels, which I hadn’t broken in, so my feet were killing me and I couldn’t be arsed getting the stuff I actually needed. Typical, eh?
Itsy bitsy teeny weeny bottle of Fantasy by Britney Spears to keep in my handbag
Stila compact - I reckon the colours are perfect for Autumn
Whittard eyebag tea because I'm definitely gonna have a lazy pampering day on my week off!
Pure coconut milk facial scrub. I love any products with coconut milk or oil and I've been using this for ages. In fact this is my 3rd bottle! Totally unheard of cos I suffer from "grass is greener" syndrome so constantly change the products I use :)
The texture is awesome - creamy but still abrasive enough to get rid of nasty dead skin and leave me feeling all soft n smooth
Vanilla bath bomb for 99p? Er, yes please! (Well at that price it would just be rude not to!)

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

Hey Hun! Great haul - and the eye teabags look super nice for pampering yourself when you have a whole week off :)
I love the colours in the Stila compact you got. Maroon-ish colours are some of my favourite for eye shadows!
Thanks so much for dropping by at my blog and for saying hi - I really appreciate it :)

Hope you like the cleanser as much as I do, I think the face is kind of creepy, too!

Nic @ The War Paint Guru said...

What an awesome haul! I haven't tried that Britney person but loads of blogers love it so will need to check it out. The first one she brought out in the blue bottle really put me off trying the rest! Where did you buy your bath bomb and scrub? xxx

Nice haul, I like the look of that scrub and coconut if one of my favorite scents, because it reminds me of summer :D

All Made Up said...

Small Old Bean to be completely honest they probably work about as well as regular green tea bags but I love using these cos they smell nice and come in pretty packaging. I’m kinda shallow like that :)

Starlight I have no idea if its available in Spain but I definitely think you could get it from eBay. I know most of the UK sellers are happy to ship anywhere in Europe and it’s a fairly common product here!

Aimee I did indeed. Which obviously means I’m a tad jealous... We dont have nearly enough awesome shops in Belfast :(

Ezzy after reading your comment I tried to take pics of some swatches but it’s a complete nightmare cos it’s dark by the time I get home from work every day so there’s no natural light. Gonna do it asap though

Frances I got them from Superdrug – there were actually a few different kinds but there’s little holes in the box so you can smell them and I’ve always liked these ones best. They arent the best thing ever but certainly help with puffiness after a late night! And they definitely leave my eyes feeling more comfortable and awake

Ahleessa I had no idea you couldnt get your hands on Barry M stuff there! I dunno what I’d do without their Dazzle Dust, I’ve been wearing it more n more over the last 6 months or so

Stacey I currently have breakouts on my chin that would actually scare small children (I kid you not!) so I’m avoiding being anywhere near a camera at the min. Fingers crossed it clears up asap so I can come out of hiding!

Nic I got them from TJ Hughes which is fast becoming one of my favourite shops for little bargain beauty sprees. I always go in with the intention of buying 1 or 2 things but that NEVER happens for some reason
