Weekly Haul // Spending Ban Restarts

For those who don't follow me on Twitter, I'm supposed to be on an official spending ban because 1. I need to stop shopping so much and use up a few things and 2. it's my birthday next month! July 15th to be precise. This is supposed to be my last weekly haul till then, I may have had to restart it, I didn't even last 24 hours...so here's what I've purchased over the week, minus new makeup storage, it's somewhere between being packed and sent to me. 
I popped into town yesterday quickly, my town is pretty shoddy for makeup, but I wanted to see the new Accessorize items, which were nowhere to be seen in mine. 
3 for 2 on S&G, my favourite brand in Boots. I'm a hand gel freak.
Two magazine freebies from Marie Claire/Ciate & a No7 polish in Dollar.
£3.70 for each magazine and £2 instead of £7 for the No7 polish.
A present from Mia, solid perfume, for reviewing her amazing perfumes she sells  back along, thank you Mia and two of the Benefit freebies I picked up from Glamour, I'm still looking for That Gal, it really is nowhere to be found.
A new hairspray to test, so I don't use my OSIS+ Glamour Queen every single day and it's now setting itself off for longer when you use it, never lend hairspray to my Mum. She does this to EVERY can I own. It's 6 on their hold scale and supposed to help with humidity, which I need and smells amazing.
My last two items are two bandeaus. Everywhere has bandeaus and a lot of stores have very similar. I picked up a Smalls. I'm only a B, but mediums in these two may have been a little bit more roomy. Both have removable padding, which will be staying. I think unpadded things are ugly, just my opinion.
What have you picked up this week?
Disclaimer: all my little buys and a present from Mia.

    I also hate it when staff stalks me, it so not what they should do to sell their products! Leave us alone! :)

  7. One of the reasons why I hated working in Boots was because especially at Christmas they want you to go up to people and just watch them. But because I hate that happening to me I hated doing to other people. I wish the big chains realized that because of this they are often loosing customers rather then helping them!

    1. My boots is never like that even at Christmas, the odd staff on tills may watch for a second but thats it, I had shoppers asking me what to get last year so maybe Boots should be like it :P It's so horrid though, it's like Lush when the staff are pushy -.-
