Bargain Buys This Christmas

With less then five weeks until Christmas, we are all feeling the pressure to get on top of our Christmas shopping before the shops get crazy and stocks get low. With that in mind, I’ve turned to Boots for all my beauty buys this year. They have some great gift set offers. I took a look at skincare, fragrance, makeup and nails to find you all some quick and easy buys to suit any budget.

For those of you looking to buy at a higher price range, I found some great luxury bargains for under €100.

  2. Clarifying Lotion 2 with Pump, 487 ml; 60 ml
  3. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ with Pump, 125 ml; 30 ml

Then we have Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Eau de Toilette 100ml for €75.00 – enough said? Great price for this 100ml high end perfume.

On the bottom is a great gift for any nail lover. The MICRO Pedi Gift Set with Nails Inc is down from €105 to €65 and comes with everything you need for fabulous feet.

Finally, Smashbox have come out with an amazing On The Rocks Photo Op Eye Shadow Luxe palette for €60 which will easily set you up for all your 2015 looks.

June Shopping Haul

So…….. I treated myself to a little shopping trip on Saturday morning. Being on a new diet and fitness regime, I felt like a few treats that weren’t calorific! I got a few things for work and a new work out top along with some essentials from Penneys. Then I went to Benefit for a new foundation/concealer/powder combo for my work days. I can’t wait to try these products out.

Sephora Haul!


I recently put in an order with Sephora to restock on some of my favourite products. I got the Josie Maran Argan Oil, Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil in the colour chocolate and the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel. Sephora also send you free samples when you purchase products so I got the Make Up Forever Powder, Good Genes Treatment and Nude Eye Complex – all of which I can’t wait to try out.

I got the larger Josie Maran Argan Oil this time as I love it and use it for many things from my hair to my skin and I wanted to restock on my Anastasia products as I could not imagine my life without them anymore (that’s how good they are..)

Let me know if you’ve tried any of my favourites or have any recommendations xxx
