A few purchases ...

Thursday, July 23, 2009

I bought a couple of tops from New Look earlier in the week as I had a voucher that I'd forgotten about - free clothes *grin*

Slouchy Minnie Mouse vest - looks cool with my grey skinnies and white canvas shoes. I'm gonna attack it with the scissors later though to "rough" it up a bit. Wish me luck!


Stripy frill sleeve top - I actually noticed this about 3 weeks ago and made a note to go back for it but it was sold out in the Bluewater branch when I was there last week. It's so cute, I love it.


Also a few goodies arrived in the post.


MAC Shimpagne MSF & Gingerly blush (courtesy of a recent blog sale)
Revlon Matte e/s in Aubergine (don't need to hunt down MAC Graphology now)
GOSH Let's twist up liner in Hot Flamingo

I got the Revlon e/s and GOSH liner so cheap! I always look for any high street make up product that costs over £5 on Ebay as I can almost always find it on there. I got the e/s for £2.80 inc postage and the liner for £1.75 - I love a bargain.

I also picked up a Collection 2000 nail polish in Ebony (black). I had a 20% off Boots voucher for Collection 2000 that was due to expire and the stand had been ransacked as the polishes are on special offer at the moment. I thought I'd pick up black to save me getting spending extra by buying Nocturnelle polish when MAC release Style Black. It only cost me £1.94 so happy days!

This is my first black nail polish too so I'm intrigued to see what it'll look like on me. I won't be wearing it until Autumn's here so I have a while to wait but it was nice and glossy when I swatched it on a nail.

I'm so over Summer now as the weather in England is a friggin' joke at the moment. Roll on A/W. I cant wait to see what the shops have in store for our winter wardrobes.
