Small Haul

Hey guys, yesterday I went to the Metro Centre with my mum, to try and find some lampshades, Operation Lampshade as yesterday will be subsequently referred to, was a bit of an epic, we started off in the Metro Centre moving on to two DIY stores, and an out of town retail park containing a Next, a TK Maxx and a Poundstretchers, before ending up at a relatives house, and did we find the suitable lampshades, did we hell!

 Anyways I did make a couple of tiny purchases which may have just sneaked me over my monthly limit on the 7th of the month eeek Never mind first up a nail polish - I've seen this on a few blogs and I think it is sooo pretty - It's the 17 (when did they drop the number 17 by the way?) Nail Xtras Crackle Top Coat - this is such a nice gold/silver shade - unfortunately you won't be seeing it on my nails for a bit following my fight with a sharp knife at the weekend but I have tried it on my toe nail and it is so pretty much nicer than the black crackles

Next up WHSmith - I had wanted some new storage bits for my make for a while now - I had toyed with the idea of the Muji clear acrylic drawers but finances didn't allow so I got one of the multi drawers - I love the floral rose print on these ones and they were only £9.99 :) I've already stocked them up with my lip products and my eye pencils so they are now a bit full whoops!

The finally port of call on our shopping event was TK Maxx I love TK Maxx and can spend ages rooting through the rails - there were a few decent beauty products including St Tropez, Ecotan, and Margaret Dabbs but I was good and headed to the clothing racks I bought a skirt which is just plain black cotton, with a smocked waist and black flower details on the bottom, it was only £14.99 and will be great for the summer - alas no pics I just can't get the details to show up

I did buy this tho from the home department - I love TK Maxx home department it has all sorts of  quirky things that you don't always see elsewhere. I had seen something like this on QVC but they were a lot more expensive than this - this cute, ceramic treat jar was less than a fiver :) I've already put it to good use and put my cotton buds in it :) So they were my purchases and I have to admit I have my eye on a few other bits at the moment too, I don't know whether it's the appearance of the sun of what but I am loving the look of skirts and summer things at the moment, I keep imagining myself in flippy skirts and flip flops lol


  1. i really like 17 products...i love their mirror shine lipsticks and shine control loose powder...the nail color looks so nice...hope that you get well soon:)
