Weekend Haul ♥

Hi everyone!

I hope you've all had a nice week, and looking forward to the weekend? Thank God its Friday, that's all I can say! I won't bore you with all my problems...

Last weekend was the first time I've been out shopping in a long while.  I felt like I deserved to treat myself a little. My closest town is Dudley, which isn't great as it doesn't really have any clothes stores... but its quiet, so I like it :) I didn't go crazy but I got quite a lot of stuff for what I actually spent. Not to mention I still had unused gift cards from Christmas and my Birthday to spend for Boots!

Here's what I bought...

 I bought this "Vintage Home" hanging storage from B&M. It was only £4.99. It is meant for use in the bathroom/shower, but it's so pretty and I think it will be ideal to use in my newly decorated room to store my skincare bottles etc.
 My mom bought me this cute little lamp for my room as my old one was looking a bit out of place. This was super cheap again at only £3.99 from B&M. I love the heart shaped base, so pretty! 
 This dressing gown was an absolute bargain at only £4.99 reduced from £11.99, again from B&M. Its huge and super soft and comfy!! 
 My Mom also bought me this new travel mug as she broke my old one. This was only 99p from B&M again. Bargain really to say they sell for around £7 in Clintons etc...
These are some things I picked up from Poundland, I dunno about you but I always love a good nosey around the make up sections in the Poundlands(unfortunately this week there wasn't much good in the way of cosmetics but I had a look round the rest of the store anyway. 

I don't really know what I'm going to do with the owl stickers, but they were so cute I bought them anyway... I'm sure they will come in handy one day :) & The Skittles candle smells gorgeous, I'll definitely be picking up some of the other scents too next time.
I just had to get my hands on the new Rimmel Apocalips which have been hyped up so much by everyone lately, and now I can see why, they're amazing! I got shades Luna, Nova and Celestial (I'll be reviewing these very soon). These were £5.99 each but on offer 3 for 2 at Boots!

I also picked up the new Max Factor Clump Defy mascara, which I am also very impressed with, which was super cheap from Superdrug at introductory price of about £7 compared to £10.99 which it will eventually retail for. 

The Collection shimmering glow is a re-purchase for my previous one which got smashed up in my bag :( This was £2.99 from Boots.
 Brunette Dry Shampoo - £1 from Poundland. (I've tried so many others but I find this one the best!)

Pantene Pro-V Full & Thick Styling Mousse - Picked this up from Poundland on a whim, I'm testing it out, and loving it so far! 

New Nivea Stress Protect deodorant, half price at Boots only £1.05. I saw the adverts and thought I'd give it a go. I'm not too keen on the smell really, but it does what it says on the tin. 

I finally gave in to buying the Lee Stafford Hair Growth range, I've seen so many positive reviews and comments on these, especially the Treatment, they are quite expensive, I think about £7.99 each, but are currently on offer 3 for 2 at Boots. I love these, and have instantly noticed a difference in the look and feel of my hair(again I will be reviewing these soon)
Finally I picked up a few sets of earrings from the Boots clearance sale. (The Christmas card does actually have 3 sets of earrings on it, disguised as baubles) Not only were these sets massively reduced... but then I found out they were also on buy one get one free! So I had all these for only £6!! 

Let me know if you've posted a haul recently and leave a link, I'd love to have a nosey :)

Hope you've enjoyed reading :)
