Hope you're all okay and having a lovely Saturday so far. This week has been like Christmas for me. I have been very naughty and have been partaking in the odd Internet shopping. All my goodies arrived on the same day which was very exciting and like I said before like Christmas. I'm going to show you a couple of the things I picked up online this week.
The Body Shop Bargains
I do love The Body Shop, some of their products are they best I've ever used and will always re-purchase. I always see Body Shop products as a bit of a luxury as surprise surprise the items I like the most aren't the cheapest. I love their Coconut body butter but for £12.50 a pop and it lasts about two weeks with me, I always see myself turning towards more cost effective body lotions. That said, I was over the moon to hear about the promotion they were running last week, where you recommend a friends email and then you were given a code to receive 50% off your order! 50%?! Amazing.
I was on the Body Shop website giving email addresses faster than you could say half price sale. I restrained myself and only bought a few bits and bobs. I think I got five items and the total was £15.00. I only got two items for myself as the rest were presents etc so I'll show you what I got for moi.
Seaweed Mattifying day cream + Sandalwood and Ginger room spray
Not going to lie, not the most glamorous of products eh. I've written about the mattifying day cream before but I'll just give another quick over view. This is great, you put it on underneath your make up and it keeps oil at bay all day long. I seriously don't know what I would do without this. At £9.00 a tub it is quite pricey considering the size but you only need a little amount so it lasts a couple of months. I got this for £4.50 in the sale. The sandalwood and ginger room spray is gorgeous. I love having smelly things, candles, perfumes etc. I love it when you go into a house and it just smells lovely. My Mum has this room spray and we both have the candle of the same fragrance and it just smells divine. As my Mum said 'it shouldn't work but it does.' The other fragrances in the range are also gorgeous, the vanilla and tonka bean one was lovely too. In the sale I got this room spray for £3.00.
Now moving on to my favourite purchase of the week....
My new baby...
I want to introduce you all to my new baby- my new handbag. This badboy believe it or not is from Ebay. I spotted it whilst looking for bags and just fell in love. It's an obvious Alexa by Mulberry rip off but I LOVE it. Being a student, I haven't got the money to spend on designer handbags, so most of mine come from the high street. I was starting to get fed up with seeing about 50 other people with the same bag so looked elsewhere. This was £24.99 which I bought with my ebay earnings. I really love it, the handle on the top could of done with being a bit wider so it fits on your elbow properly but we'll excuse that. It's really great quality and I'm very happy with it. If anybody is interested here's the link to the seller, they also have an array of other colours.
So there we go, some purchases that I've made, I also ordered a dress from Missguided but unfortunately the fit isn't quite right so that's going back. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
