Shopping for less than £25!

Hi everyone!

SYesterday was my brothers 18th birthday, so today we went to Leeds so he could spend some of his moolah, yesterday we went to Blackpool Pleasure Beach and then a meal out, so I didn't have too much cash. I decided to take only £25 just because whenever I take a lot of money with me when I go shopping, I sound almost as if I need to get rid of it before getting home, and I didn't really need anything, so I took that just incase I saw something I liked. I don't mind taking a lot of money with me when I go shopping, but I saw no point today. 
You don't realise how much you can get with just a smaller amount of money. Not only did I manage to get some bits for my self, I also got my friends birthday present all for less than £25! I'm glad I didn't take more, because I did see stuff that I would of bought, and then regret when I had no money for a while. I think I just buy things for the sake of buying them!
Anyway, I just thought I'd share my purchases of the day with you, almost like a mini haul!

Wet effect leggings

I never thought I would get a pair of these. I always saw people wearing them and envied them thinking I couldn't pull them off. I decided on a whim just to try these on, knowing I'd probably come out scarred by the site. But no. I loved them! So I bought them, and I'm glad I did! I wore them after with a white kitty design chiffon blouse that I got from Primark


Space Girl Bath Bomb

How can somebody NOT like Lush? It's a mystery. This smells AMAZING, almost like parma violets, but much, much better. It's meant to smell of blackcurrents... Hmmm. It has popping candy in, and even better, is coated in glitter! I cannot wait to have a bath with this...It won't last long!


Out of this world Gift Box

This isn't for me (But I'd love to get it as a present!) This is the gift I got my friend for her birthday. It has the Space Girl bath bomb, and rock star soap. I'm loving having this in my room, as I walk in and get greeted by the amazing smell! The paper is glow in the dark too, which is pretty cool!


Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

I wrote a review on this not so long ago (Here!) and yes, I've run out already. But it's OK, I've bought more! I absolutely love this stuff, and it does just what it's supposed too! 


Primark Hair Bobbles

Yes, I know, pretty boring, but I spent 20 minutes this morning looking for a hair bobble. I knew it was time to buy more! And who can go wrong with 30 for £1? These don't have them horrible metal panels either which really annoy me, so that's good. There's a mixture of thicker ones and thinner ones, and the packs do come in different colour sets

Primark-30 for £1

All of that came to £23.59! I still had enough money to go to subway and get something nice to eat :)  (I did have a little bit extra for lunch). I think for the money I've done quite well. I don't regret buying anything and I haven't come home with bags of stuff that'll never use.

Do you ever set yourself limits when you go shopping?

Thanks for reading and I'll talk to you next time


  1. Great haul! I love Lush products and next time I need bobbles I'll head to Primark - thanks for the tip x

    1. Thank you! And isn't it amazing when you walk in, and you instantly smell all those amazing smells? I love it! I always get my bobbles from Primark, such great value!
      Thank you for the follow as well, it means a lot to me!
