I know what you are thinking, I thought UmbrellaMonday was on a spending ban, and you would be right, I just had a few moments of weakness, and it was my birthday weekend so thought what the hey I’m gonna treat myself. And I could have gone ALOT more crazy….so you could say this is really proof of my self restraint…. : )
It all started with a trip to Boots pick up a Sleek blusher but the store in town doesn’t have a stand for them, so ended up browsing what else was on offer. Picked up a few things from brands I rarely buy from.
Grabbed the Collection Bronze Glow Ultimate. I am naturally very pale so always been a little scared of bronzer, as in the past they have been far too dark for my skin. As such I have been very loyal to my BodyShop Bronzer since I discovered it offer lighter shade options. Anyhoo I swatched this in store and am hopeful it will give the sunkissed glow promised.
Next, I grabbed a few Revlon products, I wanted Colourburst Lacquer Balm and after much deliberation picked 105 which is a lovely soft/subtle pink. It was two products for £10 in Boots, so I figured I might as well get something else. Picked up Revlon Lash Potion, Mascara, which should have been £9.99 so bargain to get it for just a few pounds. I haven’t opened this yet as few mascara on the go I want to finish, but will let you know how I get on when I do.
I also popped to the Yankee Candle Store as I wanted some scented tea lights- went for Summer Scoop which is lovely Strawberries and Cream scent- perfect for summer. I wanted the tea lights as I picked up the cutest set of 4 Sherry Glasses for £3 in a charity shop which will make the nicest candle holders. Tried them out this evening and they look fab on my mantle-place, they will look even better come the dark winter nights.

Talking of charity shop finds, I also found a total bargain of a dress. Brand new with tags navy blue lace party dress from Dorothy Perkins for only £6! I shared a pic on instagram (Umbrellamonday is my user name) if you fancy a noisy.
What have you been buying lately? Are a charity shop bargain lover too?
