I've actually agreed to go into work tomorrow to catch up on some filing because we've been so busy over the last two months so it isn't quite my weekend yet but I'm in a good mood anyway!
You may have read on my twitter that I'm having my little flat treated for some surface damp (thank you, shit british weather) and redecorated! I got home today and the place was a tip. I promptly turned on my heel and drove to Boots... well, what else is a beauty addict supposed to do when she can't face putting the curtains back up and moving furniture? ;) I managed to come away with some complete steals so I thought I'd share!
First up, these bad boys. Lee Stafford products are currently 3 for £12!!! Yep, you read that right! Being the wee bargain hunter I am, I spent a good 10 minutes picking the products that I not only wanted the most, but that would give me the biggest cost saving!
(can you tell that my beau is an accountant? I've never thought about the largest percentage saved before in my bloody life!)
I picked up Hot Shots For Blondes (because I'm really down in the dumps about my hair at the moment, I paid a painful amount to have a full head of foils and you can't even really tell it's been done and I'm pissed off, to put it mildly!), Treatment For Hair That Never Grows Past A Certain Length (I've blogged about this 5,000 times before and I haven't used it for a good few months so I thought I'd go back to it, also refer to aforementioned pissed-off-ness with hair) and the Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray (mmmm tousled tresses!).
Combined, these should have cost me roughly £22. Number crunch time! They cost me £12, therefore I saved £10 which is a 46% saving. Incredible. Alex (I know you're reading this) I'm learning, see!
I also grabbed a Sanctuary Spa thermal detox mask for £2 (I've got a hot date tomorrow night and need to be sexual), a new razor for £3.50ish (half price! read above reason!), my favourite on-the-go make-up remover - Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing 2-in-1 make-up remover and Barry M Nail Paints in 'Pink Flamingo' and 'Pink Silver Glitter' (this is new! and gorgeous!), you got £1 off if you bought two and I don't think you can ever have enough Nail Polish. Ever. ♥
There was a million and one other things I wanted to buy but I managed to reign my spending in a little bit so I'm feeling please with myself for being a good girl!
Have you picked up any bargains lately? Tell me in the comments!
ps - I've had a bunch of emails and tweets from readers asking about Alex lately, I'd quite like to keep some things to myself but you lot certainly are a curious bunch! You're all wondering how we met, what he does, and whether I'm about to move in with him... The answers are; at work, he's a management accountant and no
