Post Christmas Haul

As soon as Christmas was over and the sales were announced, I searched every website possible to find some bargains. I'm one of these people who doesn't believe in sales, I think to myself "if it's in the sale now and no one's bought it, then I'm not going to", this rule definitely applies to clothes shops but beauty is another question.

This Works Deep Sleep candle: £21, Estee Lauder Daywear set: £33, Liz Earle Muslin Cloths: £4, L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil: £16.50, L'Occitane Shea Butter hand cream: free with purchase, Mac Studio Sculpt: £24, Aromatherapy Associates mini bath oil collection: £22.52, Topshop Lip Liner in Deception: £5, Topshop Lipstick in Macaroon: £8, Topshop nail polish in Daredevil: £6.

The only real sale bits that I picked up was the This Works Deep Sleep candle and Aromatherapy Associates mini bath oil collection from Beauty Bay and the Estee Lauder Daywear set from Boots. The rest of the items were full priced. I was a woman on a mission when I was around Leeds, I even went into House of Fraser and came face to face with the Mulberry bag I've been lusting after but I walked away, I deserve a gold medal for that. I took full advantage of my first full time wage and well and truly treated myself. My new beauty items look lovely sat on my dressing table and I'm thoroughly enjoying using them - the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil is heavenly!

Have you been to the sales? Did you pick up anything?

  5. I haven't been to any sales, although that didn't stop me from picking up a few things! I just purchased MAC's Studio Sculpt as well. As for L'Occitane, it's the best hand cream I've ever used. The Topshop lipstick look so pretty!

  23. I love the L'Occiatane hand cream! I don't actually have it anymore because airport security confiscated it because it was larger than 100ml :( It was a sad and dark for everyone involved.

    looking forward to seeing how you get on with the Estee Lauder day set, I've only tried the eight hour cream, which I adore and have been eyeing up the day cream ever since first using it.
