What I bought today!

I went on a little spree today. I've been pretty stressed lately, and a little bit of retail therapy tends to help me when I'm stressed. PLUS, I haven't been properly shopping in ages, so I've been saving a little.

Here's what I bought...

First, I hit Argos and picked up the BaByliss Glamour Waves Ceramic curling tong. I've been wanting to get this for ages and I love it! I'll have a review up soon :)

Next, I popped into New Look to have a look at the sale items. Nothing really tickled my fancy, but I did pick up 4 face masks to pamper myself! I bought Very Berry, White Chocolate, Peel Off Masque and Iced Crystal

Of course, I had to pop into Boots too! I had to make a few repurchases (lipstick, eye makeup remover). I also needed another baby pink nail polish. There was a 3 for 2 offer on most (if not all!) of the makeup, nails and eyelashes, with the cheapest item free... So, naturally, I was in my element when I stepped into Boots, and I love a good bargain! I picked up my Simple Eye Makeup Remover, which I badly needed as my other one is just about to run out! As for the 3 for 2 offer, I bought Rimmel lipstick in Pink Blush (repurchase), Sally Hansen Hard As Nails and a gorgeous baby pink polish by Collection 2000, called Candy Floss. I'm a total sucker for baby pink polishes and I needed it.. or so I tell myself! I also got a €7.50 No7 voucher too.. BONUS! :)

Finally, I made a trip to Dunnes Stores (This one has 4 or 5 floors!) I wanted a basic long sleeve top for Winter to wear under knits, so I picked up a gorgeous grey/marl one. I picked up some underwear too (every time I go shopping, I buy knickers!!) 2 of them are boy shorts, saying "Sugar & Spice" and "Feeling Great, Looking Good" and a gorgeous pair of grey heart print knickers. The jewellery stands caught my eye, and even better, they were having a sale! I picked up some beautiful drop earrings with purple diamantés. I've been really getting into candles lately, so I picked up 3. I bought a huge Vanilla one - mmmmm, love vanilla! I also got 2 smaller ones, Jasmine and Rose. They all smell absolutely gorgeous. In the makeup section, I picked up an Essence angled eyeliner brush, which I'll probably use for my brows!
