Boxing day sale purchases!

Hey beauts,

OH NO! I've done it again! I've been shopping! Don't judge me! Okay, well maybe you can. But in all fairness, I overcame a fear. I usually get really agitated in very busy shopping environments, to the point where I have just stood there and cried before, but I decided to go into the boxing day sales. I'm not sure if it was just not busy, or if I was just brave - but it wasn't that bad and I had a blast!

Mulch - Embarked - Antiqued

First stop - Boots, to see if they had any good offers on Ghost Cherish (A perfume which I am running out of) and they did, this gift set was originally £25 but I paid £16.66. Winner! I then had an absolute field day in LUSH! Mainly because when I lived at home, I wasn't allowed to use bath products as they stained the bath. However now I have moved out - that problem isn't there anymore! As ever LUSH had an amzing 50% off anything Christmassy turning my bill for all of this from £95.55 to a nicer £47.74. Next up HMV. I don't think this was on sale at £49.99, but I've never seen it before. For the past two Christmas' I have asked for the complete box set of Desperate Housewives and have never received it. Following this, I had a £25 gift voucher for MAC - that obviously was not going to last long. I picked up three eye shadows (from left to right) Mulch - Embarked - Antiqued. All such stunning shades, especially if you love bronze and deep cranberry shades.

Lastly I picked up this gorgeous Ted Baker hand bag. My first ever big girl grown up hand bag (and I am nearly 22). It was £101 down from £169 AND I LOVE IT! This inside has a beautiful black and white floral detail and is stunning. Finally we put a deposit down on Florida 2015 as it was 10% off and we keep putting it off. Eep! I am super excited though and cannot wait as I have never been before.

So what did you pick up in the sale? What was your first grown up hand bag? And have you ever been to Florida?! Do you have any tips and tricks for me? I can't wait to hear, so don't forget to comment down below and tell me!

  2. You've bought some amazing things, I'm so jealous! I usually go crazy in Lush at Christmas too but I don't have a bath at Uni so I didn't pick anything up this year :( The Luxury Lush Pud and Golden Wonder are my favourite bath bombs though!
    The Ted Baker bag is so pretty - I still need to buy my first grown up hand bag!
