Spending a bit of birthday money!

So today I thought I'd nip into town and spend a bit of birthday money that I received.  I always like to actually buy myself something to show for the money, otherwise it just goes towards boring household items, ha!  I just thought I'd do a little post to share with you the things I got (all of which are common in the blog world - although I will still do reviews on some of them once I've had chance to use them).

The first place I went was Lush, which is a place I always pass and say how much I love the smell, but I never go in.  I don't really know why.  Anyway I went in because I was after a lip scrub, something which I have never used before!  After asking on twitter on the #BBloggers chat about lip scrubs and which is the best one to get, this one came up quite a few times so I knew it must be a good 'un!

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub - £5.50
There were 3 different flavours (that I could see) to choose from, so I had a little sniff of them and decided that I couldn't walk away from popcorn as it just smelt too delish! Mmmm


The next place I went was Boots (as ever).  I honestly don't think I can go to town these days without going into Boots - best shop ever!
Anyway, I headed straight over to Bourjois, where they had a 3 for 2 and I picked up the following...

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in Shade 55 - £10.99
Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Enamel in Coral - £5.99
Bourjois Cream Blush in 04 Sweet Cherry - £7.99
I'm sure you will have all read countless blog posts on all 3 of these items - as that's the main reason I picked them.  They have all had rave reviews (especially the foundation), so I knew I needed to get my hands on them at some point.  The testers for the foundation were all either empty or missing so I really hope I picked the right shade for me (I'm really quite rubbish at colour matching myself).  I've heard lots of good things about the 1second nail polish so I picked up my very first one in this GORGEOUS Coral.  Such a nice summer shade.  Then last on the Bourjois list was the new(ish) cream blushes.  I chose 04 sweet cherry as I think the other shades would be a bit too light for my skin.


I then headed over to the Soap&Glory makeup counter, as I was after getting the Glow All Out powder after reading so many rave reviews on the stuff, however they had a 2 for £15 offer going on, and given that they are £11 each, I knew I needed to add another one to the mix...

Soap&Glory Glow All Out: Luminizing Radiance Face Powder - £11
Soap&Glory Solar Powder: Mix and Match Multi Shade Bronzer - £11
... so to go with the Glow All Out, what better than the beautiful Solar Powder?  Can't wait to experiment with these beauties. Expect a full review on these 2 very soon. (I do however, really want to get One Heck of a Blot and the Kick Ass Concealer too).  I may need to go before the 2 for £15 runs out.  What a deal!!

So there you have it.  Some nice new treats to add to my special Birthday products.

Have you dabbled in any of these items?  
Have you got any suggestions of any cult items I missed? 
Love to hear from you :) x
