Mini Haul


A pretty random post in the sense that it’s a mini haul post rather than a full blown haul. I’m on a strict ‘no spending on unnecessary purchases’ (the necessary being stuff beauty essentials and my weekly magazine haul of course) until end of March when me and Anna are going on a shopping spree to get new clothes and stuff for London. Until then I’m supposed to be limiting myself, however last Friday I realised I had a little more money to last me till I get paid this Friday. Instead of putting some of it aside for London, I decided to get a couple of things since I haven’t treat myself to something nice in a while. First up is the best O.P.I Rainbow Connection dupe I’ve seen, the Technic Carnival. I first saw it on etc llymlrs and I knew I had to get it! I mentioned in this post how the Body Care I went to in town didn’t have it, so I decided I’d buy it online some other time. I bought it from Amazon for around £2.69 I think with free P+P. It looks amazing on, although I’ve only done it on one nail because the rest we’re already painted with another glitter nail varnish, but the varnish on my pinkie finger came off so I used that to test it out. Definitely my favourite polish at the moment! My second and probably fave purchase for a long time is my Chanel mirror. I’ve wanted one for at least 3 years and I’ve always been put off because of the price. It was £23 for a mirror, which everyone I’ve told have told me I’m crazy for buying it, but I have wanted one for ages! It comes in a cute little pouch (which it should do really for the dollar I paid for it!) and it’s amazing. It’s my first high end beauty buy (technically it’s an accessory) and I think buying this will wean me onto spending a bit more money on makeup than I normally do. Although I’ve always thought myself as a high street makeup girl (which I will be forever!) all girls like to have a little bit of luxury in their lives!

Also, a quick mention that I now have a banner that you can use on your blog if you want to support me. The code is on the right hand side. I would love it if you could find the space on your blog to support me! Thanks guys!

  4. I actually need a new mirror and I would love that one! So no, you're not that crazy :) I mean you can actually keep a mirror for a lifetime (if you don't brake it).
