Weekend Shopping Haul

Over the weekend I decided to treat myself to a few goodies. I had a list of things I wanted but ended up getting nothing on my list and instead I bought a lot of stuff which I had no intentions of buying, does this ever happen to you ? 

First up is Artdecos Dita Von Teese collection. I came across it in Debenhams and it was all half price so I couldn't resist picking up a few bits. I've already done a review raving about one of their blushes so when I saw that they were half price (€5.50) I picked up two more of them. 

Both of the blushes I picked up were matte, one was a nice pale pink (shade 20) and the other a darker pink (shade 31). The textures of the blushes are so smooth and finely milled that they nearly feel creamy to touch. 
The final thing from the collection I picked up is the candlelight powder which was reduced to €15.00. Similar to the blushes the powder is also very finely milled. It has light reflecting particles in it so it gives a lovely glow to the skin. I will do a proper review as soon as I've given it a good testing. 

I also went to penneys and picked up a few of their frilly socks. These are so adorable and really cheap! A three pack of ankle socks was €3.50 and a normal sized two pack was €3.00. 
I also picked up this lovely dream catcher necklace in Claire's accessories. This was only €5.99 and it also comes in gold. 

These are the only two products I had on my list, something new from lush and something new from the body shop. From lush I decided to pick up their dry shampoo No Drought. I'm a huge fan of dry shampoo but I find that the aerosols irritate my scalp so I decided to give this one a go. It was €4.95 and as with all lush products this too is made from all natural ingredients. 
From the body shop I picked up a sample size of their peppermint smoothing pumice foot scrub. It was €2.00 so I figured I would give it a try. The smell is so fresh and as you would assume it also smells like pepper mint :) 

Finally I went to the Yankee candle store and decided to pick up this adorable glass bucket type holder for sample sized candles. I think this size of candle is great for trying a few scents before you decide on which big jar to buy. The sample sizes are €2.50 and the glass holder was €2.95. 

Have you made any new purchases recently ?
