Mini Haul

I recently went for a mini shop round Meadowhall and picked up a few little bits. 
Keep reading to see what I got. 

First stop, Superdrug: I'd been wanting to get a few things from here for a while and I thought I may as well get them before I run out of money (which I will at some point or another). 
The first thing I got was the Superdrug Cotton Wool Double Faced Pads for £1.89. I love these pads a fair bit and thought they'd go brilliantly with my Garnier Cleansing Micellar Water for £4.99. I've used this twice already, and I just love how amazing it is. It really does work wonders when it comes to removing your make up. I will have to see if it breaks me out or anything, but so far so good! 

The next thing I got on my mini shopping trip was some new Shampoo & Conditioner. I'd been needing some for a few days after running out of my original ones. That weekend I'd gone to my fella's for a few days, and that's where I found my next buy. I was quite lucky that I found a good deal with these as well - 3 for £10 is not bad at all! I got the Aussie Shampoo Miracle Moist £4.49, the Aussie Conditioner Miracle Moist £5.99 and the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor £4.99. What attracted me to these the most was the smell. I absoloutely fell in love with the scent of these. You don't even have to open the bottles, you can smell it from far away which I think is a must with good hair products. You want your hair to smell nice right? I'll have to update you on how it goes with these but I'm liking them atm. 

The next place I visited was Victoria Secret. I wasn't really sure what I was looking for, I'm just very easily intrigued by how a shop looks... and thanks to the semi naked pictures of women, so was my boyfriend. We dotted around the place, and after just about leaving with nothing, I came across the body butters. Wow is the only word I can use to describe these. They are just so lush. What got me, was the colour of the butters. There was purple ones, yellow ones even blue ones. I was just so utterly shocked at how pretty they all were. Anyway, after much decision changing (and trust me there was a lot), I finally picked my favourite. It was the Such a Flirt Deep-Softening Body Butter £13. I could of got 3 for £24 but I decided against it. The smell is outrageously gorgeous, my boyfriend thought it was mangoes bless him. It's actually Starfruit and White Orchid. Admittingly, the scent doesn't last that long but truth be told, I don't care. I got this mainly for the softness and how moistursing it is. 

You can't have a mini shop without a trip to Lush. Well I can't anyway. I didn't even know that there was one in Meadowhall so I was pleasently surprised when I came across this one. (My boyfriend less so)
I held back quite a lot and only came home with 2 bath bombs. One of them was my favourite, which I've just done a blog post about here. The second one I got was something I've never tried before but for £2.65 I thought I may as well give it a try. I got the Think Pink which I have another blog post about it coming soon.

I also got a new lipbalm (which I forgot to take a piccy of) but it was the Carmex Cherry Lip Balm which I'm obsessed with btw and some doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (sorry I ate them before I could take a picture)... but for those wondering, I got the Strawberry Gloss, Cookie Crunch and Strawberries & Kreme (which I never got to try because my boyfriend ate it -.-) 

Have you picked up anything nice lately?
