Pre-Payday Haul!

With Payday still being a week away I think it was a extremely bad idea on my part to go shopping. There's just been so many new products being released over the past while I couldn't help myself. I don't think I'll be buying anything beauty related for a while now, I want to start using up more products so expect a big empties post coming your way soon. This month I want to pick up some new clothes so come next Friday I'll be hitting up New Look and Awear. With my success with the Slimming World program I've found that a lot of my clothes in my wardrobe are too big which is a good thing but a bit of an issue when I have nothing to wear. Don't worry though I'll certainly be writing beauty related posts in the coming weeks. I have a lot of products that I've been loving lately that I want to show you all.

I was eyeing up both of these items in work for a while until I finally caved and bought them. I'm forever jotting down notes for blogging so I decided to pick up another. Sure you can never have too many, right?? I just love the cover design it's really fun! This was €4.95 in the Sale so it didn't really break the bank. Accessorize always have amazing sales, definitely worth popping down to if you want to find a bargain or two. The Lip Smacker Cupcake Lover's lip balm set was a impulse buy on my half. I thought they looked so cute in their little cupcake shaped pouch. I know Lip Smackers aren't the most moisturising lip balms so I'm not expecting too much from them in regards to hydrating my lips. However each lip balm has a different cupcake flavour which in my opinion sounds amazing! Not going to lie I was sold after I seen that. I haven't tried these yet but I shall let you know what I think of them soon. I'm going to try the Salted Caramel lip balm first, it sounds so good!
Of course I picked up a few things from Boots, it's one of those shops I can't walk by without popping in for a little look. I picked up three products while I was there, one being the new Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser. I've used this a couple of times already and I absolutely love it. I like how it's quick and easy, great for when I'm on the go in the mornings. I really think this would be a great little product for someone who is stuck for time and wants something that works in seconds. I opted for the Cocoa Radiant scent, there are another two to choose from but this one smells the best in my opinion. I will admit it is on the expensive side at over €6 but I know I'll get a lot of use out of it myself. I know when I seen it at first it looked kind of gimmicky but let me tell you this works. I aso bought two new  makeup releases from Max Factor and Rimmel. I'm really looking forward to trying out both of these products. I seen such a good review on the Rimmel Scandaleyes on Fleur De Force's blog so I have high hopes for it. I love mascaras so when I seen the new Max Factor Wild Mega Volume I popped it in my basket. It's on special at the moment so how could I resist? The package is really different in comparison to other offerings from the brand but  it did jump out at me right away which I guess is a positive!
Paddy picked me up the new issue of Allure magazine, the gorgeous Amy Adams is the covergirl for July. I've been getting this magazine for the past few months now and I really enjoy reading it. I love hearing about all the new products that are coming out on the market aswell as getting some much needed tips and tricks.The only problem is that we have to wait for a while for them to be released on this side of the pond. For around the €6 mark some may think this magazine is pricey but there's a lot of reading in it and some really good articles. While I was waiting for Paddy to finish work the other they I stumbled upon a Bargain Bookshop where I picked up Vanity Fair. All the classics in the store were only €3 which is a steal, it was so hard to decide on one as there were so many to choose from. Keep in mind it will take me a while to finish this as the writing is tinny tiny but I'll definitely let you know what I think.

All in all I'm really pleased with all my purchases. I can't wait for Payday to roll around, don't know what I'm going to do for a week with zilch money. I would love to know what you guys have picked up shopping recently.



  1. I love allure mag I have been getting it for years but have found it hard to find so I subscribed to the magazine on my iPad so I works out better. Love the spray and go so easy to use

  2. I really want to try that spray and go moisturiser!

  3. Love your haul! I love all things to do with Paris so I kinda want that notebook now even if I probably won't use it! Haha. That Lip Smackers set is super cute, I might have to look out for that :D I haven't seen those Rimmel Scandaleyes yet so it's good to see them on your blog. I will definitely be swatching those next time I'm in Boots.
