A Boots, TK Maxx and Yankee Candle Haul

I wasn't meaning to go shopping this month at all, I only wanted to pop into boots to grab a couple of things.. and then I was convinced to 'pop' into yankee candle, and Tk Maxx was right next to boots.. and then I spent a bit of money.

Let's do Tk Maxx First!

I really like the beauty section in Tk Maxx - I tend to only buy things with a red sticker though, as in my head, I can justify them as a bargain.

So the first item is Amara Deep Nourishing Treatment Intensive Weekly Re-hydration Complex for dry, damaged or coarse hair. I've never heard of Amara, but my hair isn't feeling so great after a huge dose of antibiotics and a heavy cold, so this really caught my eye. I like products that come in boxes - am I the only one? The RRP on this is £17.95 but I got it at my red sticker price for £3. Yes.

Empties #2

Hello! Prepare for a huge parentheses.... (It feels like a long time since I wrote a post...here's what has happened in my life in the past month or so. I had an interim exhibition as part of my MA degree, which took up a lot of my time (and money!) which is why I went a bit quiet. Anyway, the exhibition was brilliant and fun was had by all. After that, I was lucky enough to develop tonsillitis, and so I was put on some lovely antibiotics for that - not only was I lucky enough to have every side effect to antibiotics known to man, my immune system was being hounded by medication, and I caught a cold. That brings us up to right about now - where I'm now off the antibiotics, getting over my cold, and feeling a almost back to normal. Sweet! I mention this, because I'm starting on the road to getting my tonsils removed, and would like to call anyone who has experienced this to contact me, as the Internet holds little information that doesn't scare me witless, to tell me how it was and how long it took you to convince a doctor to do it.) Parentheses over!

I've been really trying to cut down on my collection of half used items, so I've been really trying to use up things that are open. Since my last empties (HERE) I've not done too badly... Here's what I got through..


Lips of the Day #4

Today I wanted a quite understanded lip - I'd gone for some 60's inspired eye makeup, and teamed it with Rimmel's Apocalips in Nude Eclipse.
