Payday Came Early

I got paid early this month and I had planned to be extra carefull as it has to last me allll the way to the end of January, unfortunatly whilst clomping around Northampton in my new aviator boots (at 23 years old I'm still not used to heels - sigh) I spotted this in Boots. Actually it wasn't really a spot as such, as there were huge displays of them and queues full of girls/ladies laden down with them.
"This" being a rather large box of Soap and Glory products for the Christmas offer price of £25! It's meant to be 60 but every week boots are knocking off over 50% of something from their gift range. I'm planning on using some of the products tonight post a very warm bath and pre a big bout of self tan so as of yet I can't say if anythings actually any good, but I do already own the motherplucker lipgloss that gok wan raved over in How to Look Good Naked so the rest must be ok right?
Anyway here's a few snaps, excuse my cat Theodore he's clearly a photo hog and has been jumping in the box all day.







The products included are:

Breakfast Scrub - oat shea butter and sugar body smoother
Flake Away - shea butter, sugar and peach seed powder body polish
The Righteous Butter - body butter
Off Your Face - 25 cleansing cloths
Girligo - spray on body moisturising mist
Hand Food - hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow
Glad Hair Day - Shampoo
Clean On Me - Shower Gel
Scrub Your Nose in it - Face mask/scrub
Sext Mother Plucker - Lip plumping gloss

I reckon 25 squid for all that is rather good considering everything is about 8 -5 pounds if you buy it seperatly. Has anyone else snapped up some Boots bargains this year?
Anyway i'm now armed with Heat magazine and a brew and ready for a mammouth bath, i'll let you know my thoughts on the products tomorrow.

London's Calling...or it was

On Wednesday I got back from London, and I had such a good time. I didn't have loads to spend and wanted to save what I did have for clothes, so we stayed in one of the Easyjet hotels. After booking it I read trip adviser and was not looking forward to it at all; at £30 for the room per night you pretty much get what you pay for and there were many cries from disgruntled guests warning me to stay away. It's a good job we didn't listen to them because the place was great for what we needed - a superclean basic room with an ensuite - and I think I had the best nights sleep in months! I'd deffs reccomend it to anyone planning a mini holiday to London on a budget, you do have to pay extra for use of a tv, extra towels, and even a window but £30 for a room in earls court is a steal.

We did endless roaming of Oxford Street, ice Skated in Hyde Park, perused Camden, celebrity spotted in Selfridges (spied Katie Weissel, Mollie and Frankie from The Saturdays, some Arsenal Player and Joe Calzaghe), and cringed in the london dungeons. By Wednesday morning I was skint and blistered but very happy, the only downside is having to wait until christmas to get my mitts on the French Connection jumper the manfriend kindly purchased me for Christmas!

I didn't end up buying as much as I thought but here's a couple of things I did get (scuse the bad blackberry pictures)

So that's been the highlight of my week, going back to the ol' credit control on Thursday morning wasn't much fun but today is Friday and tis only a week until Christmas Eve is upon us. Quality Street anyone?
