Yesterday I went sale-ing, as my lovely grandad used to call it! Calling all students – Topshop is giving you 20% off until Sunday, so make the most of it!!
A few things may have also arrived in the post, as well…ahem. While I may not have overcome my addiction, you’ll be pleased to know that my purse is now safe and in recovery. As I have no intention of reforming, let’s take a pre-giveaway look at what I bought! (That’s right – it’s GIVEAWAY time tonight!)
Firstly, the flamey thing in the background is my delicious Yankee Wax Tart Burner, which only cost £4.99! My lovely housemates and I all ordered something off the site to split the cost of P&P – great way to save on delivery. I bought a Christmas Cookie wax tart to melt in the top, and now my whole room smells of buttery vanilla-y deliciousness! These burners are amazing if you have a big room and a scented candle just doesn’t cut it.
I hit Boots first, as they have some offers at the moment. Clinique is currently doing a mascara swap – take in any old mascara (or buy the cheapest you can find!) and they’ll swap it for a miniature of either their High Impact or High Lengths mascara for free, worth around £7.50! I already have the High Impact (which you can seehere), so went for their award-winning High Lengths this time; I’ll let you know how I get on.
Lancôme is also giving away 7-day trial sizes of their innovative anti-ageing range – you can never start too young! Just go to theirFacebook app to print off a voucher and exchange it in store.
Topshop Liquid Liner
I found this liner in ‘Tarnished’ in the Topshop sale for just £2 – a gorgeous shimmery khaki colour. It claims to be long-lasting, which I can vouch for as that liquid line is still on my hand after doing 2 days’ worth of washing up!
Mac 187 Brush
Yes, I did it, I bought the £32.50 Mac Duo Fibre Brush… for £8 from a trusted Ebay source (family friend)! Too good a deal to miss, I can’t wait to try the stippling technique and tell you all what I think! We’ll see whether that pixelated flawless finish is really
My Seche Vite Top Coat finally arrived, so thought I’d treat myself to some products to use it with! I bought Sally Hansen’s Healthy Cuticles Now! cream to keep my nails healthy, followed by Topshop’s mini Cyclone nail polish for £3 in the sale (a lovely shimmery blue-grey) and their Crackle Topcoat in Frosty (a champagne shimmer). I managed to achieve a high-shine, textured finish overall:
I popped to Primark and got these bow detail tights for just £3, which I think will look great with my skater dresses.
From Topshop, I bought this amazing body chain for £16.50, which will completely transform an LBD. It’ll also be perfect for a bit of ethnic fashion this summer, which is bound to return for festival season!
I then got my hands on this beautiful red, semi-sheer midi skirt with a hidden slit down the centre from the waistband. It’s a Topshop Premium sale piece, down to £35 from £65 in the sale (and £28 with my discount!) – can’t wait to wear over summer.
The black and green shimmer is a pair of Topshop skinny ankle cigarette trousers, which I’ll be teaming with heeled brogues and a silk shirt for my magazine internship this autumn.
Have a look below for a few styled-up looks:
Hope you’ve enjoyed this quite extensive sales haul! Better rein it in…at least until next week.
Stay tuned for the giveaway!
