At the moment I still have basically no income (should have some basic ESA reinstated but the DVLA forgot about it -__-) so I can't really afford to buy makeup or clothes or other nice luxuries. I still make some very small purchases occaisionally but they are few and far between. I'm also currently having some problems leaving my house, so Claire decided to take me out shopping and buy me some presents. We went to Kingston. I was very anxious and had some real difficulties but in general I had a lovely time, Claire was really good at looking after me and calming me down and she was really generous! I got lots of goodies and technically only spent £2 of my money! I felt accomplished afterwards.
Claire also decided I needed to have my picture taken. I'm not sure why, I didn't look particularly nice! And yet I am sharing for some reason :P
It doesn't look it in the photo but it was too bright for me to see, which is why I'm pulling a silly face.
And I like this photo because it's just like this one from about a year ago when we first got Weevil :) Yet again it looks like I'm strangling him when I'm not, and he's a lot bigger of course!
And the other day Jesus appeared in my cooking!
It's Jesus or some kind of crab-beast anyway :P
Now please follow under the cut if you wish to see my haul.
First we went to Superdrug and Claire picked up a few bits for us to share:
A Ped-egg and 2 Beautyuk Pearl liquid eyeliners in Purple Haze and Eclipse
And she also got me some goodies:
Accessorize Nail Polish in Purple Dream, Barry M instant nail effects in pink fizz and blue print, MUA pencil eyeliner in Bright Orange and glitter eyeliner in Shade 7
You can't see properly because it was impossible to get a good picture of but Purple Dream is an amazing purple/blue/pink/copper multichrome coloure.
Then I went into Office and found a pair of shoes I love in the sale. They were only £18 and I'd wanted them for ages so was really pleased. Then I tried on my usual size, an 8 and they were far, far too small. But by some strange miracle they had one size 9 which fit perfectly! So Claire bought them for me :)
You can get them in beautiful red in sizes 3-8 here
Finally we went to Boots and I decided to spend some of my 3970 advantage card points. This is the first time I ever bought something with points and it was great, like getting something for nothing :)
Soap and Glory were on 3 for 2 so I picked up a large bottle of the Righteous Butter Lotion, a bottle of the new Soap and Glory original scent perfume and a tube of Sit Tight. I've tried the regular Righteous Butter and love it so I thought it would be good to try a lighter weight version for summer, I adore the smell of Soap and Glory products so was absolutely delighted you can get a perfume of the scent and I've tried Sit Tight before and really like it.
That lot came to just under £30 so I still have about £10s worth of points left to spend :)
I also £20 my Grandma gave me the last time I saw her so I treated myself to a bit of makeup.
Models Own smash up nail polishes (yet more crackles!) in Silver and Purple and Lipstick in Plum, Bourjois nail polishes in 18 and 13
Both Models Own and Bourjois nail polishes were on 2 for £8 and the lipstick was £6 so I only spent £2 of my own money! Good times!
Also Claire's Mum sent her a parcel and along with it she put in a few bits for me :) Thanks Claire's Mummy!
She sent me a Glamour with all 3 Benefit freebies, a sample pot of Cliniques Redness Solutions face powder and some lovely pants with french fancies on them!
Here's some swatches of everything:
Benefit freebies - Benetint, Posietint, High Beam
Beauty UK pearl liners in Purple Haze and Eclipse (these photos don't do them justice! is an insanely beautiful royal purple colour and is a really complex deep dark colour which is sort of grey, sort of navy and sort of green all at the same time and they both have a fantastic pearly sheen!), MUA pencil eyeliner in Bright Orange , MUA glitter liquid eyeliner in Shade 7, Models Own Lipstick in Plum
I'll probably review everything at some point but if there's something you're really interested in let me know and I'll do it ASAP :)
