April Hauling...so far

I've had a few bargains this month already, though these spends have left me counting down to payday - come on Friday!!

I've had loads from The Body Shop. I signed up for a Love Your Body card in May last year. It costs £5 and lasts for a year, in that year you receive 10% off every purchase, a birthday gift to the value of £5, free products after reaching four and eight stamps, event invites and discounts. Bargain.

I received an email titled 'Happy Birthday' with a £5 voucher which I assumed was my £5 birthday gift, wrong. I bought a few bits in store using my voucher and was then told that I could go back in any time this month and have something of my choice for £5, so I actually had £10 for my birthday.

Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash £5.50. I find that the night and day lotions in this range work wonders so decided that I would try the cleanser. I haven't opened it yet but have high hopes for it.

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion £7I'd run out of the day lotion so purchased another bottle. I still have plenty of the night lotion because I accidentally ordered two in my last on-line shop, it'll get used though.

Colourglide Lip Colour shade 55 Pure Blush £9When I got to the till the SA informed me that it was 3 for 2 on facial skin care and make-up so I decided to pick up one of their lipsticks as I haven't tried any from their range yet. I haven't tried this yet as I've been testing out my Chanel lippie, I'll let you know how I get on with it soon though.

Almond Nail & Cuticle Oil £7. I remember hearing a lot of good things about this when it was first released, but finding it impossible to get hold of. I saw this while paying for the above goodies and decided to sneakily add it into my basket!

Almond Hand & Nail Cream £5/free as birthday gift. (for some reason they only have the larger size on the website which is what I've linked to.) I love the smell of this and you can never have too much hand cream so I decided this would be my birthday present from The Body Shop.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Make-up £26.50. I picked up a sample of this from House of Fraser ages ago, you can read my review here. I loved it and now can't live without it. £26.50 later and I should have a supply of it for quite a while. I only wear it when going out so it lasts me ages.

Primark Hair Doughnut £1. I've been considering buying one of these for a while but didn't know what to do with it. I mentioned on Twitter that I may purchase one and Dani informed me that Primark do them for £1, no harm in trying for that price! I can't believe how easy it is to use and how effective it is. I wore it to work today and had three people complimenting my hair.

Primark Hair Rollers £1. These were next to the doughnut, again I thought I'd give them a go for a quid! I haven't used them yet.

Primark Satchel, sale £5. I couldn't leave this there for that price! I really like it and its huge so will be ideal for little day trips, I think that I may even be able to fit my Nikon in here. Good times.

Primark Oil balancing cleansing wipes with Tea Tree x 2 £1. I usually buy the face wipes in the pink pack from Primark but thought I'd try these out for a change. I haven't yet used them so am not sure if they're any good.

Wilkinson's peg bag £1.25 and pegs £2.50. Bit of a random one but the peg bag is cute so I thought I'd show you! I like to treat myself to a new peg bag & pegs every year - rock 'n' roll!

What have you been buying lately? Have you bagged any bargains?

  6. I have that Stachel and I loved it, until the bugger of a strap snapped on me :'(
    When I get a chance I'm gonna try and stitch it back together as it's a great bag

  9. I want to see you with the hair doughnut in! Good isn't it. I've seen a version similar like a ball on a slide to use to do a behive style up do although i have been known to use knotted extetions to pad out an up do xx

    1. I put a picture on my week in photos :) It is very good, I can't believe I've gone so long without one!
      The beehive one sounds good, but maybe too complicated for lil old me! x

  11. Looks like you've got some great stuff this month so far!
    I would be really interested to know what you think of those rollers, as I've been after some for ages. If they do the job for that price then they are a bargain.
    Bodyshop always draws me in when I am passing by because it just smells so good! Haha. Love their body butters. I've never tried any of their makeup though, so again, would like to know your thoughts.
    Loving that Primark satchel! :)

      The Body Shop does smell amazing when walking past, I like their butters too.
      This lipstick is my first piece of their make-up, I haven't tried it yet but will again post about it soon xx
