Hope you enjoyed this post!

I will be doing separate posts/reviews on some of the items included in this one, so if you would like to me swatch/review any specific items, please leave a comment below, & I'll do my best :)


  1. I love the look of Revlon Nail Polish in Gold Coin and I think I need Primarks version of the tangle teezer!
    I really want a B&M store near me I keep seeing so many amazing deals!
    I'm looking forward to seeing your thoughts on the NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer, You got some great buys!

    1. The Gold Coin varnish is surprisingly from Revlons current range! Normally I find that from the pound shop they are discontinued colours, however I shocked to find the exact same one in Boots for £6.49!

      I'll make a note to review the NYC Primer :) Thanks! x

  2. What a productive weekend. ;) It seems like magazines in the UK give out really generous freebies; not so much in Australia! That is a really cute belt from Primark :) xx

    1. Yes, the last couple of months especially have been great. Last month was my favourite as there was lots of nail varnish! :)

      Thanks! Not bad for just a pound haha xx

  3. The Revlon nail varnishes look really pretty :) I'm looking for a new primer so I may check out the NYC one you picked up xx

    1. I did try it out a little today and its made my skin appear instantly more awake and hydrated, its got a nice shimmer to it aswell! :) Not bad for just £2.49! :) xxx

  4. You got a ton of stuff! Wow! I've heard really good things about the St Tropez tanner, but I haven't tried it. Everything looks fantastic!

    1. I'm yet to try the St.Tropez Tan. I will do a quick review on it once I've tried it out a little. I'm looking forward to trying it, and hope I don't love it too much because its normally too expensive! :( xx

  5. I've heard alot recently about pound shops having some really good makeup in, and now after seeing those gorgeous revlon nail varnishes I'm going to have to go hunting for some bargains!

    1. You should definitely go and have a hunt around! :)

      It depends, sometimes you're lucky, and you'll pick up tonnes of great buys, other times there's barely anything other than their not so great own brand make up. xx

  6. wait a second!? poundland sells revlon?! it's not my favourite nail polish brand but it'll certainly do for £1!! i'm so amazed ha ha!

    1. Poundland usually have a load of different makeup brands. Sometimes theres more choice than others, but you should definitely check them out :) xx

  7. Those Revlon polishes are a bargain, might have a look in there tomorrow while I'm at work!


    1. You should definitely have a look! :) It was in Poundworld up Merry Hill, the bigger of the two pound stores! xx

  8. Wowza!! Looks like a fun shopping trip Laura! :)

    I'm sooo jealous! hehe. I need to check out Poundland! Also, is Mua always so cheap?! I've never tried it myself


    1. MUA is amazingly cheap! You should definitely check them out, try your local Superdrug, they may have some stock in, or try MUA Store online, they've got their whole range there! :) xxx

  9. Woohoo fab haul hun. I'm loving all the nail stuff you got from Poundland. I'll be looking forward seeing those polishes in action x :-)

  10. I like the above thought and I am glad to be the part of it.Thanks for sharing it!!
