Yesterdays Goodies and Spending Diet = Fail

OK as I said yesterday I went shopping with Godmother to a Boundary Mill Stores close to where I live. For those that don't know Boundary Mill Stores is an huge outlet store located in various location throughout the UK, my local one is in Shiremoor. They sell fashion, shoes, homewares, and some beauty items. The clothes aren't always geared toward the younger generation but you can sometimes find a few bits. Anyway I received a little bit of cash from my Godmother and my mum so I didn't have to break into my own money too much. My generous contributions paid for a few bits including a lovely Yankee candle, and some candle plates, a piggin figure (yes I still collect my piggy's), a lovely chunky cream scarf and some black Pretty Polly opaque tights and also a couple of tops from a company called CMD Womenswear I hadn't heard of them before but on reflection I've noticed I do have a couple of thing by them already. First of all I got this sparkly grey sequin detail vest / tunic - I like the random distribution of the sequins as much as it won't matter if they start to come off because the pattern is so random (sorry it's a bit blurry too sparkly I guess)

I also got this long slinky tunic style top with black sequin detail on the shoulders - it looks blue in the pic but its actually a gorgeous royal purple - oh and it also comes with a skinny black patent belt - I'm not to keen on the belt so I might cut the loops off but I'll have to wait and see

Both of these tops were just £5 each which was a bargain x What was a bigger bargain though was something I bought myself - they had a huge box of By Caprice bras which were only £3 each - after pulling virtually half the box out I eventually found a gorgeous black and white floral one in my size - alas I couldn't find the matching knickers but I am sure plain black will look fine - see as it was originally tagged at £20 I was super happy with my bargain but then I got to the till there was another surprise - there was another 10% off it meaning I got if for £2.70 result :)
I also bought another ickle thing - you've guessed it make up :) Now my local store doesn't usually have that many beauty goodies but I was delighted to see that they had a few NYX palettes :)Well I had little look and I decided to get this - it was £6.99 and it's the Smokey Look Kit

It's a super cute little compact which is ideal for on the go - it contains 9 little eyeshadows ideal for doing various smokey eye looks not only that but in a little drawer underneath you get two gorgeous lip colours in a pale milky pink and a peachy nude - I am super happy with this kit x

So as it's now blatantly obvious by those last two little purchases my spending diet for February is now an abject and utter fail - so what did I do I made it worse and placed a couple of orders one with ELF who were giving away a free lipgloss set with any purchase and Littlewoods who offered me a lovely £10 discount on my next purchase -sod! I've always said I am sucker for an offer -I'll stick pics etc, up when they come - so what do I do in the meantime try and reign myself in for the rest of February or do some more shopping - we'll see xx
