Weekly Haul // Spending Ban? What Spending Ban?

So apparently I wasn't going to spend for awhile....I guess I shouldn't jinx myself. There's always something I end up wanting when I follow so many tempting blogs. 
In my last haul I mentioned my Nan was on her way back from Paris with my Bioderma, she actually got me a twin pack and I'm loving it so far, it's got me wanting to try more French skin care. Then the lovely Jo held a give-away for these rather peculiar things, Pedi-sox. I'll have freezing cold feet in the middle of July, even when on holiday, I'm a cold feet freak, they're designed to wear when you give yourself a pedicure, I'll see how I get on, thanks Jo! Everyone has been reviewing these face masks that I'd ran out of, I failed to find most of the new masks. Having a Body Shop outlet 20 minutes from me is heaven. I had about 40% discount off of these and there's nothing wrong with them. I've heard amazing things about the banana hair range, smells like the old glitter babes range in 'funky monkey' I used as a child, if that brand was still around/as good as back then I'd still be buying it to this day. 
I have never been in a poundland before, plus it's in the next town over. So I popped in after I saw bloggers posting how they'd picked up Revlon polishes and other brands. They had Sally Hansen in there!? For a £1!? Crazy. So I ended up getting one of every colour, minus the horrid yellow there! Followed by two Revlon polishes. Boots still have Natural Collection as 3 for £5, so I grabbed more to try, 2 blushers, blushes, whatever you call them? What is the correct term, everyone says different. I picked Peach Melba and Pink Clouds. Followed by a gloss in Cherry Drop which smells amazing. The No7 vouchers are back....wish I'd split my buys into groups to get more. £2 for a pack of wipes. I'll be stocking up on them. Maybelline have new products out, I passed at the polishes and picked up one of the Popsticks in Pink Sugar, it's the best out the lot if you ask me. It smells good enough to eat and reminds me of the Topshop lipstick I wanted. Cue blogging craze.
I also visited the Gap outlet store, hoping they'd have my legging jeans there, no they had every other jean there, but the jeggings. I ended up attracted to the joggers, then wanted the same colour in a hoodie. I wanted something to go home and snuggle in, after having horrid cramps. I may have picked coral because I'm a coral lover and it matched my nail polish exactly...
Then I hit Clarkes, which I never like going in, I just feel like I'm too young/too old for it. Maybe it's just mine, I know a few bloggers find stuff in there. Mine are okay if your 40 years older or into the flashing trainers. I found these for £4.99. They match a pair of shorts I own. Can stores stop making items to match what I own please?
Last clothing store of the week, Primark,I don't know what has happened to my local...it's actually improved minus the army of mothers and pushchairs. Despite improving, there weren't many 6's. I picked up this shirt for £7 and a strap top for £2, they're always in the wash when you need them. 
I also happened to win Treacle Moons scent suggestion give-away on their website. I suggested Mango Peach Salsa and it won. I don't have a Tesco near me, so I haven't been able to try out any of their products, reviews are to come.
What have you been buying this week?

  1. Lovely haul! I wish I had a Poundland near me!

    I always said blush/blushes when I lived in the states, but coming over to the UK, I started hearing blusher so I just kind of go back and forth between the two now. xx

  5. I'm clueless when it comes to the blush/blusher debate.. I always thought blush was American and blusher was British but I don't know!
    This post has made me all the more excited for my trip to poundland on Monday! The town I go to has 2 for some reason as well :D

  11. Check you out, winning everything! Haha. Lucky you, getting stuff for free is the best. All of those Treacle Moon products sound as if they would smell lush.
    I'm sure the English way of saying it is blusher, not blush, as that's what I was brought up saying, but it seems that everyone in the beauty blogging world is now calling it blush...maybe it's an American influence?
