The End of My Spending Ban! And a Little Haul…

august-haul

Hi Guys!

So you may or may not have known that I’ve been on a sending ban for the Month of July, it was really difficult to not buy any makeup at all but I did it! Obviously by the end of the month I was literally gagging to flex some plastic and treat myself so I went into Norwich on payday and bought a few bits! I had to go to the dentist anyway so I thought it’d be completely silly of me not to have a little look round the shops while I was there! So I met up with my BFF Kat and and headed into the city…

I had my heart set on Jo Malone and Tom Ford before we’d even left home so our first stop was, of course Jarrolds. We headed to Jo Malone first but I really wasn’t sure what I wanted so I let the assistant take the lead and help me, and guess what? I’m not gong to tell you what I bought! Ha ha! I’m going to save that for another post 🙂 Ohh what a tease I am! I did buy a couple of lovely things though and they’re just so amaze I wanted to write a post just for them. Don’t worry I’ll have it done in the next couple of days! 😉 Ok so after Jo Malone we stopped at Tom Ford and I had to drag myself away before I maxxed out my card, which I could have done very easily – no purchases there I’m afraid, not this time anyway. We then headed to Chapelfield where I popped in Superdrug and picked up one of the new Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stains, again all will be revealed all in another post but you can see from the picture which colour it is at least. I think I subconsciously went for this as I desperately wanted a Tom Ford lipstick and the packaging is kind of similar??

After a brief ‘is the baby coming right now?’ moment of panic with Kat who’s due on August the 11th, we then headed over to House of Fraser for a quick nose around and I found myself in the Yankee Candle section, funny that! They had a few new candles out, all with a distinct Autumnal feel which I wasn’t quite ready for yet. I’m still in full summer mode so I bought Pink Sands and Summer Scoop, which are both lovely summery scents. Summer Scoop especially caught my eye nose as smells just like strawberry ice cream. I did in the end also go for Amber Moon from the new Indian Summer collection, which again is lovely with scents of Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood.

Kat then had to go home and I had a dentist appointment too at this point (the whole point of my trip into Norwich) and only after my appointment did I realise it was late night shopping, what a result!! So I headed back to Chapelfield for another look around and picked up some cleansing cloths from Boots as I seem to have lost all four of mine. H&M was my next stop as I always pick up every day basics from there such as their long vest tops which always come in a vast array of colours and I grabbed this awesome chain print tshirt, it was only £7.99 too, bargain! On the way back to the station I quickly stopped at Topshop for a peek and spotted these awesome pretty pink flats – I am partial to a pointed flat, and at only £16 it would’ve been rude to say no!

So that’s about it for my first spree of the month! I feel it was rather successful!

I hope you enjoyed my post and keep an eye out for my Jo Malone post coming up soon! xx
