Distractions

The fact that my university is 20 - 25 minutes away from town means that I have to get the bus. Obviously this has it's pros and cons... mainly pros. But, I do volunteer at a school in town once a week, so I clearly make the most of it whilst I'm in the area! 

The first stop is always Boots then I 'window shop' for a while and then head to Sainsburys for my weekly food shop... Yes, I do have a bit of a rota going on, may be a slight bit of OCD but I hate to be disorganised.

Anyway, the point of this post is to show you what I purchased on Thursday.


I did control myself, seeing as I just purchased my mum's birthday present I don't have that much money to spare this month! 

Biore 'Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser' from Sainsburys £3.32 (on offer)
Imperial Leather 'Skin Kind enrich raspberry & lime blossom body wash' from Sainsburys 94p (on offer)
Oilatum moisturiser from Boots £7.65
Natural Collection blusher in 'peach melba' £1.99
Natural Collection loose powder in 'translucent' £1.99
Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in 08 'Rossetto' £5.49


This blusher is a re-purchase, it's my everyday blush. The colour is gorgeous and great for summer time, Natural Collection blushers are my favourite and they're so affordable!



After watching the Pixiwoo sister's religiously for a while I decided to pick up the Oilatum moisturiser since they seem to use it as a base quite frequently. I have been using Cetaphil moisturiser for over a month now and it is great but I don't think it's quite moisturising enough.





And finally I picked up this lipstick on a whim. I want to build up my lipstick collection and ordered a Mac lipstick but I got it sent to the wrong address (idiot). The colour of this is great, not too different from my natural lip colour, but I really don't like the texture. There's creamy and then there's creamy. I can just feel it sitting on my lips which I really don't like. 

I wish I loved it more but nevermind. I'll just have to wait for my Mac one! 



What purchases have you made recently? 
Do you budget yourself to a certain amount to spend on beauty products each week?

Hope you're having a nice day!

OH, WAIT... I just have to say, I signed up to Glossybox yesterday and cannot wait to receive it. Yay!

    1. It is a gorgeous, subtle colour. It's one of those shades that I think would suite a lot of skin tones!
