Naughty Haul

When Ash Wednesday hit this year, I couldn't think of any better than to give up spending for lent. But, as the days drew longer and my new foundation started to run out, my lust for new products got the better of me and I went shopping. I know what you're thinking, I failed. I gave up too easily and I wasn't committed enough to stick it out. But, the feel of my card in the chip and pin device, carrying new bags home and being able to post a brand new haul for you guys... Damn, it's so good. I sound like Rebecca Bloomwood don't I?

Here's the items I purchased during my naughty haul:

I didn't buy too much, but it satisfied me all the same. 

Rimmel London True Match foundation in 201 Classic Beige - £6.99
Barry M nail polish in 296 Coral - £2.99
Denman D3 medium 7 row hairbrush - £7.09 (random price, isn't it?!)
2 True waterproof eyeliner - £1.99
Garnier Moisture Match 'Shine Be Gone' mattifying moisturiser - £5.99
Primark Home pillowcases - £1.80 each
Primark Home Elderflower and Champagne candle - £2.00

Now for the excuses behind the splurge; I've needed a new hairbrush for a long while now and I've been 'making do' with a cheap one for too long much to the dismay of my hair... my foundation and eyeliner both ran out the day before I went shopping... those beautiful pillowcases are pretty much impossible to resist and the candle was an impulse buy when queueing due to it's amazing scent. Am i forgiven? I didn't think so.

 I'm going to try out the Garnier moisturiser over the next few days and post my thoughts as part of my 'Tuesday Reviewsday' post!

In other news, I am still waiting on three of the items I purchased for my 100 followers giveaway to arrive! :( As soon as they do I will get the post up asap, I'm so excited to be doing my first giveaway!

Hope you're all having a great weekend.
