A little trip to Boots…


Hey everyone !!

Whilst In boots the other day with my cousin, I had a bit of a what the hell moment, and a quick pit stop to pick up a mascara turned in a full on splurge…



I decided to branch out and try a different mascara, one that I had never used before. This Super Curler volume and curl mascara from Rimmel looked promising and wasn’t to expensive either (£6.99) so I decided to give it a go. iv only been using it for a couple of days so I haven’t really formed a full opinion of it yet, but it seems to be doing the trick… I also picked up the Collection Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner. I had actually given this to my mum for mothers day, and she said that it was good and let me try it out and I have to agree. it works like a felt tip pen which makes wings much easier for a novice such as my self, seriously I’m a bit hopeless when it comes to winged eyeliner.



I definitely went a  bit overboard  with the nail polish haha. But at only £2.99 each I just couldn’t say no. I bite my nails see, so I’m always trying to find a way to make them look a little less ragged. I actually managed to get myself out of the habit a couple of years ago, but the stress of A levels have left me right back at square 1 😦 so I’m now back in the process of growing my nails again. These four shades from the Rimmel Rita Ora collection, which I have named above, are all so pretty and summery…well maybe the grey isn’t as light and summery but its the kind of colour that looks good all year round…I’m actually wearing it on my nails right now !



This Nivea light moisturising day cream is actually a repurchase. I was in the process of squeezing out the last couple of drops the last week so I decided to get another one as I really like it ! The one I get (the normal/combination skin) has spf 15 which is handy with it being summer. I also think that the smell is delicious !! which is weird because it kind of smells like sun cream haha , but a nice sun cream. I was also pleasantly surprised when I found that it was half price at £2.51 ! Bargain.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul, let me know if you have any makeup or skincare recommendations ! Byyeeee

      I do the same ! I have a big box of acrylic nails from superdrug (they’re the kind you have to paint) but they make my nails look nicer AND stop me attacking my real nails…its a win win ! 🙂
