Friday Night Swag

I love a bit of Friday night, after-work shopping, don’t you? The only thing is I see things I don’t buy and then the next day is Saturday so I inevitably return to purchase those items I’ve decided I must have after all.. d’oh! The whole point of late night shopping is to avoid the weekend crowds!!! Anywho. I thought I would share a few offers I noticed. Number one on my list was Boots are giving away a free Glam Eyes liquid eyeliner with any purchase over £5. Now they did me good ’cause I went in for the mint green nailpolish you see here which was £4.49 and there was no way I could find something for 50p to top uo my purchase so I ended up replacing my Stay Matte powder which died recently. Rimmel’s Exaggerate liquid liner is my all time fave so I’m really looking forward to trying out the Glam Eyes. Second deal of the evening was Maybelline’s new Colossal Cat Eyes mascara was down to £5.99 from £7.99 in Superdrug for it’s launch PLUS you get 300 beauty card points with the purchase!! bargain! I know I bought a new mascara last week but with that kind of logic this one was practically free (expect pics and review very soon). Unfortunately as I am a total numpty I forgot to give them my beauty card when I got to the till so I’m more than a little peeved but am hoping they will add my points from my receipt.. I haven’t opened it just in case.. I figured I was probably going back today anyway.
Not all of you will be interested in this next one but as I’m getting more and more fat.. okay, pregnant, I am developing the worst cellulite of my life and it’s all the way down to my knee!! I know us girls are plagued with the orange peel, dimpled thighs but it’s getting beyond a joke. I seem to remember getting a little obsessive about cellulite the first time round so I’m hoping it’s just a symptom that will go away but none the less I couldn’t resist half price Perfect Slim from Loreal. They do a whole range of “sculpting” type gels and creams and they are all half price in Superdrug right now so if you love them or have ever wanted to try them now is the time to go pick one up! I did also buy a new MUA eyeliner I’ve never tried before as well as a Models Own nail art doodah that I’ve wanted forever but they weren’t as exciting as my final buy.. Coconut Oil. I forget the exact price but it was under £2 for sure. It can be used on the skin as a moisturiser, it can be used as a leave in conditioner on your hair and it can be used as an intensive mask for those with dry or damaged tresses like mine. Result! I slathered (lying – Lee slathered) it all over myself last night and this morning I am feeling pretty darn moisturised. It’s a bizarre formula that is hard in the tub and melts on contact with your skin to a kind of oil. I will post about it in more detail but I urge you all to go out and get a tub.. I will be trying it out on my hair this morning too.. can’t wait!
I also feel it necessary to mention this awesome jumper I got from Primark for the fabulous price of £10
I am totally in love and very excited that these plain, chunky knits are back in fashion. They are so my style and what I like is so rarely “in” so I will be embracing this trend to replenish my wardrobe for years to come. One of the items I’m going back for today is a Zara cardigan that I just can’t stop thinking about. I dearly wish brands would give up putting weird elbow patches on stuff but the ones in Zara are the least vile so I think I must have it.
Do any of you indulge in a weekly spree? what awesome finds did you pick up this week?

    I love the MO nail art pen! I bought this jumper the other day I lovee it and saw someone wearing it this morning and it looked great! I bought one striped with brown, blue and cream blocks which is really cosy for winter and flattering which is a bonus! Hope everything is going ok with the baby! X
