Beauty Haul

The beauty bug

has bitten


- Yesterday both nervous and extremely excited I attended the #leedsbloggermeet, I will be writing a separate post on this lovely occasion tomorrow so if anybody is interested in finding out what happened when 20 or so beauty and fashion obsessed strangers met outside the corn exchange in Leeds, keep your eyes peeled. However, after a busy blogging related weekend I woke up this morning feeling as though I had been bitten by the beauty bug. After work, I popped into Superdrug and Boots to pick up some essential items and to also have a scout around for an exciting product (or two) to jump in my basket.


- With my bright red hair set to fade the moment I wash out the dye, I have been on the look out for a new Henna based shampoo and conditioner. These two from the Boots 'Botanics' range were buy one get the other half price. BARGAIN. As it's my birthday coming up, I will be having my hair professionally coloured red in two weeks time so I will be saving these beauties to see if they make any difference to the colour fade and shine. The range also includes the same products for both brunette and blonde hair. For the price, you can't go wrong


- After a week of intense stress bashing my car and completely losing my rag with everything, I took it all out on my poor nails, which had grown really strong and nice over the past year that I had stopped biting them. For my birthday I will be having gels put back on but in the meantime i'm not loving the 'stubby, sore, bitten effect' I always feel like people will judge me when they see the state of my fingernails THEREFORE. FAKE IT! I can't wait to give these a go tonight. I like square nails so I picked the short square ones in the hope I can finally appreciate my new, gorgeous nail varnishs'!


- Need I say more? Although i'm pretty annoyed that the Co-Op only had the medium tan in stock! Grr! AND to add to my annoyance... They are so pricey in there £5!!!! Err, I shall be heading STRAIGHT back to Bodycare ASAP!


- You will have no idea how excited I was to see this!!! LEOPARD PRINT BATISTE! Oh my, it was love. I cast aside my usual 'tropical' Batiste and went totally wild for this one. Like they always say, packaging sells! It was half price at Boots on an introductory offer which I thought was rather snazzy!


- 2True in Superdrug - a budget beauty junkies saviour, once again my love for barginous makeup is eternal! Three products for £4.99! I picked up a gorgeous sparkly pink lip gloss after being tempted yesterday by the MAC Dazzle Glass', I also picked up a concealer as I had run out and finally some lashes! (The whole reason I went into Superdrug) Originally, I was after the Kimberly lashes however, I saw these and couldn't get over how both glam and sublte they looked.... if that's even possible? *thinks* Anyway I can't wait to try them out tomorrow!

Love, Holl
