After two Boxing Day sales hauls (Part 1 / Part 2) I thought I was done with shopping but then I decided to pop to town today for a new dressing gown. I always head to Primark for that sort of thing and I knew there wouldn't really be any reductions on dressing gowns as they are already fairly cheap at £10. Ideally I wanted one of the bold pink or purple ones but they didn't have my size. I settled for a navy one with white polka dots and a mixture of white/pink hearts. It's really soft and will keep me nice and warm for the rest of the winter.
Whilst in the nightwear section of Primark I spotted some cute Minnie Mouse pyjama bottoms with black and white stripes with a pop of pink in Minnie's bow so they had to be purchased! They were £7 and they had some Minnie pyjama tops that would have matched but I prefer to wear vest tops.
Following on with the Minnie Mouse theme, when I saw the pink slipper boots, I needed those too! They were £5 and are soooo soft and cosy! They aren't a structured boot, just like a thicker slipper sock with grips on the bottom and really soft fleece inside. Love them!
My final Primark purchase was this canvas print for the bargainous price of £3! I'm obsessed with Paris so I pretty much love anything with Paris scenary on and I liked the pink 'Paris' text on it too. It looks really nice against the grey background.
Another obsession of mine is Ronan Keating. I grew up loving the Irish boyband Boyzone and have loved Ronan Keating ever since. I don't think I'll ever grow out of this obsession especially when he keeps getting better with age! (I know he's not the most popular guy but I love him!). Anyway, I had to buy his 2014 calendar! With 40% off, I paid £5.39.
I headed to Boots as I needed some conditioner and ended up buying 3 of the L'Oreal Paris Hair Expertise products on a 3 for 2 deal. I picked up the EverRiche Nourishing & Flowing Conditioner to go with the matching shampoo that's currently in my shower. I love the EverRiche range but fancied trying something else so picked up the shampoo and conditioner from the EverStrong range.
I mentioned in my previous posts that I normally buy more perfume sets in the sale but having received 3 bottles of perfume for Christmas I only bought one perfume myself. Well, after umming and ahhing over the Prada Candy L'Eau (£32.99) and Gucci Guilty (£34.99) sets, I caved in.
I love the regular Prada Candy scent and I've bought it twice but I've never owned the newer L'Eau release but often had a little spray on passing in a shop and loved it so decided I should just treat myself. I've also liked the Gucci Guilty scent for a while when I've tried the testers, so again, I indulged! They are both 50ml fragrances that come with a body lotion and the savings are pretty big compared to their normal prices. They will keep me going for a long time along with my other new perfumes! Also just worth noting, the bag that comes with Prada Candy is so nice, it doesn't seem like the usual cheap freebie you get with these sort of things and I would actually use it as a travel/makeup bag.
Ok surely that's my shopping done now! Haha. The next thing I'm looking forward to is the release of the new Revlon ColorStay Matte and Lacquer balms in January!
Let me know what you've been spending your Christmas money on or if you've picked up any really good bargains in the sales.
What new releases are you looking forward to in 2014?
