In my shopping bag I have...

*A little Retail Therapy*
 Passing through town and I just couldn't resist....
It is difficult to walk through town to get home and not walk into a shop! I just couldn't resist. To be honest I haven't been out shopping in so long, because I have been so busy, so considering it has been a while I didn't buy as much as I would, so I am proud of myself.
Primark therapy:
 Love going to Primark for little bits and bobs. I came across this lovely thin scarf in there for only £4.00, absolutely love the tartan-esque pattern with the red roses. Scarves like these are great to jazz up an outfit, I would wear this scarf thrown over a black midi dress or over a black baggy jumper and skinny jeans, it is the statement piece to an outfit.
I also bought those funky rings from Primark, the red ring is a beaut such a bright red and looks lovely with the gold, I adore big bold rings and I think it would go lovely with my new scarf :). I am also loving midi rings and I thought this set is so cute and for £1.50 you can't go wrong. I find statement jewellery can really change and switch up an outfit, you would never see me without statement jewellery on!
Boots therapy:   
I haven't bought a nice nail varnish in ages and I have never tried 'essie' and I have heard lots of good reviews about the nail varnish so when I saw this great offer in Boots I had to get it. Not only is this Essie Fiji/ A Cut Above, A Sprinkle in Pink Gift Set £12.99 for 2  (standard Essie size bottles) but also it's 3 for 2 in Boots at the moment, BONUS!
I really like this diamond glitz effect at the mo, its so sweet and really adds a touch of sophistication on a classic mani. The colours are great together, it features Fiji (left: the soft pink) and A Cut Above (right:sparkly pink glitter). You could wear the Fiji as a stand alone polish but I prefer it with A Cut Above, especially using A cut above just on my ring fingers.
This product is good value for money and a great little gift idea. To be directed to the Boots site click here.
 Max Factor Elixir Lipsticks:
The 3 for 2 offer was screaming at me and I new I wanted some new lippies so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to buy some. I love Max Factor make up and have always got on really well with their lipstick's. I haven't got the best lips, they are always dry and peel (worse in Winter) and because of this my lipsticks doesn't stay on for long. So I'm intrigued to see how I get on with these two.  

(Left: Max Factor colour Elixir's 'Angel Pink', Right: Max Factor colour Elixir's 'Pink Brandy')
As my lips seem to lack moisture Max Factor Elixir is supposed to act as a moisturising lipstick, not only leaving a gorgeous colour on your lips but also 'visibly moisturise lips', I hope this is the case! The colours caught my eye, firstly because I've been wanting a coral pink lipstick for a while now and thought this one (Pink Brandy) was perfect as it's not too bright like some of those coral lipsticks out there. Also, I have so many shades of pink lipsticks (clearly I adore pink lippy) and I love the shimmer to the light pink (Angel Pink) it definitely looks angelic, sweet and pretty. I also am a bit weird but I have to smell my lipsticks if they have a nasty, fake, strong smell I just wont buy them and what I particularly liked about these lipsticks is the smell, it's quite floral...I don't mind my lips smelling of flowers! So for only £7.99 for these beaus you can't go wrong, plus it's 3 for 2 don't miss out guys, if you like the look and sound of these click here to be directed to the site.
