Mini splurge...

... in preparation for my Germany trip next week I've had a little shopping trip to restock on a few things, like my No7 beautiful skin cleanser, which I've blogged about before and cannot recommend enough.

Im also giving the exfoliator a go as its the only thing in the range I haven't tried yet, and I really could do with not stealing my boyfriends shaving scrub anymore at the result of smelling like a man.

No7 Eyelash curlers- as Ive not owned a pair for years, since my last ones died or went missing I'm not sure which.  Either way the 3 for 2 offer in Boots is always a great way for me to end up with something that Ive wanted or fancied trying for ages.

Total bargain!!! Current season Marc Jacobs sunnies £29.99 thank you TK Maxx :) can not believe it! they are AMASING, only snag being they aren't in a matching box so I ended up with Missoni one, but I can't complain with a hefty bit of saving from the RRP £110

Magma Fashion sketchbook- another TK Maxx find, literally saw it just before I got to the till, quite a cool little book, has nice quality recyclable sketching paper and handy little finds throughout such as templates, measurement sheets and other bits and bobs.

Last but by no means least-  Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.  I have never used a primer before other than my Urban Decay primer potion.  But thats just for around the eyes and after being amased at the lasting results and growing tired of slidey makeup days I thought it was about time to invest in some for my face.  It was a toss up between this and Benefit's Porefessional, which I had sampled and loved but didn't want to pay the £20+ price tag.  I had noticed that the Smashbox primer was coming soon on so Im glad I stuck it out as I only ended up paying £13 wahoo!  So I'm really excited to try this out.

By the way if you haven't checked it out already, you really need to have a look at buyapowa its rather addictive! And besides who doesn't love high end products at lower prices?
