Shopping from town!

So I went shopping yesterday and bought some stuff!

I bought Look eyeshadows (currently only £2) in Gillet, Satchel, and Taffeta.
They're lovely and soft and matte, and perfect for a smokey eye.

In Primark I got two pairs of fun sunnies, some Haribo gold medal sweets, a vest top (one of the basic 2x2 rib ones, very boring), some face wipes, and some charms for my charm bracelet, which now has an L, a boat, a star with the US flag on, a suitcase, and a red mini with the Union Flag on the roof.
 The flowered sunnies were £2 and the tortoiseshell £1.

I also treated myself to an apple pie Mi-Shake (our local variety of those milkshake shops where they blend whatever sweet thing you want with ice cream)

Boots advantage card vouchers!

In the post this morning came my Boots voucher letter :D
There's a little thingy telling me I have £3.98 in Advantage Card points, yay (I generally use them for chocolate...)
Then in terms of vouchers (all valid until the 29th/30th of July)
  • 500 points when I spend £30
  • 200 points when I spend £20 (two of these)
  • double points (usable twice)
  • £2 off Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (Might invest in a second colour!)
  • only £1 for a 17 Wild Curls mascara
  • double points on sun protection
  • £10 eye test (silly them, I'm still eligible for NHS eye testing)
  • £5 off when I spend £25 on electrical beauty
I have no idea how they decide exactly which vouchers to send, but all but the last two are fairly good.

There's also info about 3 for 2 on mix & match holiday essentials (I'll be using that to pick up insect repellent spray, a mini Nivea deodorant,and maybe a dry shampoo for my sailing holiday) and half price on sun protection.

Thanks, Boots!

My favourite summer blushers: GOLD by Giles (New Look)

Now, we all love the Horizon de Chanel blush.
But at nearly £50 it's undeniably out of most of our price ranges.

I was in New Look the other week and saw this, however:
It's far more shimmery than the Chanel one, so it's more of an evening blusher - but for £2.99 who cares?
Also, because the stripes are wider you could do an entire face with it. The top line is quite good as a highlighter.
