What I've bought this week..
Browsing online is a dangerous thing for my bank cards. Sometimes I do pick up a few bargains. This week I was especially lucky on ebay, which is unusual for me - I won 2 auctions! I got a MAC palette, Escada Cherry in the Air perfume and when I was in town, I got the Mane n'Tail Detangler!
I had this notion of buying a MAC palette and starting to fill it up gradually over time with lovely eyeshadows. I got this "old style" palette on ebay for £10.50. I don't really like the new style palettes with the clear lid, so I was delighted with this. I depotted my only two MAC eyeshadows and maybe someday, one day, it will all be filled with 15 shadows! My two shadows are Trax and Gleam. I have been looking online at all the gorgeous MAC eyeshadows available. It's quite overwhelming because there are so many! I would find it hard narrowing it down to 15! But I think I will try and buy at least one a month to try and fill up my palette.
Another ebay bargain. I managed to get this perfume for £10.00. I fell in love with this perfume last summer and I used to spray it liberally on myself every time I was in Debenhams. However I can't really justify buying perfume for myself... I just don't really do it, I would prefer receiving perfume as a present! But I spotted this bottle on ebay. It is the most fabulous, light scent for Spring time. I cannot even describe this scent, it is nice and sweet but not a teenagery scent, if you know what I mean. I just cannot get over how nice it is and I am delighted with it! I actually was in Debenhams today and noticed that they didn't have Cherry in the Air - I know it was a limited edition perfume. All the Escada perfumes are lovely actually, and they all just remind me of Spring/Summer! :)
My local chemist started stocking Mane n' Tail, and I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the brand! Because I have found a shampoo which finally works for me (Kerastase Bain Exfoliant) I am very reluctant to try new shampoos. But I picked up the Detangler, because I have serious problems with my hair being tatty all the time. I had been using a Schwartzkopf detangling spray for children but it wasn't really doing anything for me. Well, I used the Mane n' Tail for the first time lastnight and all i can say is - WOW! I sprayed it through my hair when wet and was able to literally glide my hairbrush through, no problems. Even today, my hair feels a lot smoother and sleeker than normal, and when I got a big tat in my hair from wearing a coat and scarf, I was able to brush it out so easily! I can safely say I think this product will be considered a "life changing" product for me! I'll see how I get on with it over the coming weeks, but first impressions are incredible!
I don't think I did too badly this week! I am very happy with all of these items. Let me know if you bought any nice things for yourself this week!
