I would die for you baby, but you wouldn't do the same. ♫

♥ A pretty huge haul awaits.. 

I woke up this morning after a whole week of needing some Retail Therapy, & knowing my local Lush had a great offer going, I dragged myself out of bed extra early. The only thing is I'm absolutely shattered now. But it was worth it, have a peek at what I got..

Lush

The offer they had was 'Spend £25, Get A £20 Goodie Bag' which I just couldn't resist. So I got up at the crack of dawn (9am hehe) and got ready to raid the shops. Ok I didn't literally raid them but I did run around Lush like a looney. I had already planned out what I was going to get (ooh, get me!) so I just hurried around picking it all up. In fact, I cleared them out of their display of Ex Factor boys mwahaha.

What I picked up:

 From left to right:
Frog Prince Bath Ballistic
Butter Ball Bath Ballistic
Pillar Of Fizz (x2)
Ex Factor Bath Ballistic(x2)
Oatifix Fresh Face Mask
Shampoo Bar Tin
Bubblegum Lip Scrub (a backup!)

I actually got the Oatifix for free as I'd collected 5 black pots to return to the store. I thought it would take me a few weeks to get 5 pots, but it's taken me more than 5 months! Most of the pots were from face masks given to me as samples by the staff..


What came free in my goodie bag:

From left to right:
Butterball Bath Ballistic
Creme Anglaise Moisturiser (full pot :O)
Honey I Washed The Kids Soap
Porridge Soap
Big Shampoo
It's Raining Men Shower Gel

Quite a good offer going on there isn't there? 

Boots

While I was waiting for Lush to open I had a little walk around Boots, which led to me buying 3 products. I also had Bella Bamba, the new-ish 3D blush by Benefit, tried out on my cheeks by a lovely MUA. 

I didn't intend on buying anything when I first went into Boots, I was just trying to kill time. But as usual I had a search around for some pretty things and picked up these three beauties

Bourjois Healthy Mix has just been awarded Best Makeup Product, so I had to buy it! ;) 
I don't really have an excuse for buying 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick in Beehive, it just suited my skin tone so I snapped it up. I also picked up another Bourjois Blush (Rose D'Or) after being really impressed with my other one. 

Left: Rose D'or         Right: Rose Frisson

Just for guidance I popped out my Rose Frisson for comparison. Rose D'or is a lighter pink with more of a blue undertone, where as Rose Frisson is a lot more orange!


Here's a super bluery photo of my lips after I'd applied Beehive by 17. I got this after seeing it on thisiscaz's blog a couple times, and it looked so gorgeous! I'm also a huge sucker for pretty packaging. 

Dorothy Perkins

After I had a peek in Boots and Lush I nipped into Dorothy Perkins, where the assistant exclaimed 'I smell Lush!' which ended in a big conversation about Emotibombs. Crazy I know! 


But while this was going on I picked up another one of the Candy Box charm bracelets. I had already received the purple one (left) for xmas, and had grabbed some more beads a week after. I liked it so much I wanted to get another one, but this time a lighter more neutral bracelet that I could wear every day. I chose pinks, greens and teals; & a little heart charm and a dangly flower. I'd already got the flower on my other bracelet but I liked it so much I had to get another!

These bracelets are great value! So I would really recommend them. You can get them from the counters at Dorothy Perkins, and they cost less than £20 for the beads and bracelet itself. I counted that the purple cost £19 and the pink/green cost £12. The purple one has more beads and stuff though :) 

Wow, sorry for such a long post! I was going to split it into 3, but it flowed better this way.
