Shopping the Sales: Part 1:

Now I knew I would have to post my Christmas sales shopping but the plan has shifted slightly, originally I was just going to do one post to cover it all but as my sales shopping is admittedly always slightly out of hand and the items from ASOS are enough to fill one post I thought I should do it one shop at a time, starting with

I'm a self-professed expert bargain shopper and I am, I'm good at getting bargains, I don't usually mention how distracted I am by other items and my Beautybay order shows this exactly, here's what I bought;

Starting top left and then working my way down on the right:
Tangle Angel Professional Detangling Brush Black £11.95 // bareMinerals READY SPF15 Touch Up Veil Original 10g £16.28 // bareMinerals High Shine Eyecolour Meteorite £11.10 // OPI Silent Stars Go By £8.05 // China Glaze Strike Up A Cosmo £6.26 // Ciate Helter Skelter £9.00 // Ellis Faas Glazed Lips L303 Sheer Berry £22.00
The was a mineral foundation, I already have one that James received when ordering a Christmas present but I don't mind having another one as they're handy to keep in my handbag.

Only half the items I bought were in the sale, actually slightly over half so I can pat myself on the back. Another pat as the other three items had been on my wishlist so I wasn't just buying willy nilly. Add to that a number of the items aren't in stock any more, well James will be patting me on the back too (sshhh, I know I could have bought them from somewhere else but then there could have been a p&p issue, etc.)

I'm sure I'll be posting more in depth about these product at a later date, specifically the Ellis Faas glazed lips as I've been hoping to try this for a while.

Hopefully the next instalment of 'Sharon doesn't have the word budget in her dictionary' should be tomorrow - unless I'm unable to drag myself away from Minecraft.
