Accidental spending. Again. Marvellous...

I had a really good Saturday this week! I met the girls in Melrose and we went for coffee, and then went down to watch the boys play rugby.. it was interesting to say the least, haha. We went to Boots afterwards because I needed a new lip balm, well.. I didn't, but I'm a bit obsessed with them so I wanted another;) I ended up spending £20+ which was NOT the plan, at all! Then we went to see our friend who has just come out of hospital (actually, she's back in today so send her love and hugs!) which was nice, we've not all been together for ages because when we've visited her we've been on our own so it was nice to spend time together:) We headed back to Emily's at about 7 because we were staaaarving, and had pizza, chips, garlic bread and ice cream for tea.. we're such ladies... at least there was no cider involved this time!
So on to the important stuff... What did I buy?!


Well, the first thing I bought was, of course, a lip balm by Norwegian Formula - a pretty sensible purchase, and my plan was to pay and then LEAVE. But it went downhill as the makeup counters caught my eye.. As soon as I saw Kate Moss' collection of lipsticks for Rimmel I really wanted one, so I bought one in shade 03.







 I also picked up a No7 mascara because I've not come across one that makes my lashes look as nice, and I'll keep buying it until I do! It's amazing, I can't recommend it enough!
After just 2 coats! There are no words to describe how much I LOVE this mascara!



Then I bought a bodyspray from Natural Collection, it doesn't last very long but it smells so nice! Just to show how nice it smells, I sprayed it in the common room today and the game of Fifa was paused (yes they PAUSED Fifa!!!) to work out where the smell was coming from, because it was 'class' and 'amazing'... praise indeed! One of them also described it as smelling like Tutti Fruitti, which I guess it kind of does:)


I also bought some Boots own eye gel, just to see if it will actually work to reduce some of the puffiness around my eyes, they're not that bad, but there's always room for improvement! (Sorry for the lack of picture - my bad)


Finally, I really needed some kind of nail repair polish, so I got this one by Rimmel because recently my nails have been spitting really easily - not airing them enough between polishes I think!- as well as some heat protecting spray by got2b.


So overall I've had a really good, although unnecessarily expensive weekend! So much to look forward to - next Saturday I'm off to an 18th, dressed as a farmer.. and then maybe dress shopping on Sunday. And on the 7th I'm going to Barcelona!:):) So excited, I know it's a school trip but with my two best friends going too it will be amazing! 

Two coats of mascara, and the Kate Moss lipstick - a rare picture of me with no eyeliner!


I hope you've had a good weekend too! Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you thought of them!

    1. thank you! i'm not going to lie and say it lasts all day, but i wore it last night to a party (so i was talking, drinking etc.) and it lasted a couple of hours.. but the good thing is that because it's quite cheap you can take it with you and not have a breakdown if something happens to it! although i think i still would, i love it! haha xx
