Post-Christmas Haul + Topshop Sale!

Come on, who CAN resist a cheeky little post-Christmas haul when they're out and about browsing the sales?  I can't, especially when it's going to be the last time before my strict spending ban!  Here's what I picked up..

Boots Haul Botanics Seventeen Maybelline
Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm. £6.49 (usually £8.99)
Seventeen Phwoarr Paint. £5.49
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow in On And On Bronze. £4.99
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. £7.99

Ok, so technically these weren't in the sale, but I was actually going into Boots for my trusty Botanics Cleansing Balm, of which I am onto my second tub (review here) and couldn't resist leaping onto the Baby Skin and Colour Tattoo bandwagon (admittedly slightly late on the latter).  I also had some advantage card vouchers which meant I got some points when I spent anything in the Botanics range, plus a cheeky voucher for £1 off any Seventeen Concealer or Primer so it would have been downright RUDE not to!
Topshop Alite Chelsea Boots Denim Jeggings New Look Waterfall Jacket
New Look Black Leather-Look Waterfall Jacket. £34.99
Topshop Alite Elastic Chelsea Boots. Was £65. Now £40
Topshop Bleached Denim Leggings. Was £22. Now £12
A New Look Voucher from Christmas meant I could get the Jacket I had my eye on since before Christmas - bonus!!  I was browsing the Topshop sale when I came across these beautiful black boots (of which I moaned I couldn't afford).  My Mam then piped up and offered to buy me them as a treat. How sweet? She's a legend!  I actually think she felt embarrassed/sorry for me clumping around in my 3year old scruffy UGG boots. haha! For some reason these boots are coming up at £45 online but they were definitely £40 in store!  I spotted the denim leggings on the way to the till in TALL and I had to grab.  I can never seem to find anything in the sale in my size from the tall section and they are perfect for my lengthy legs - yayy.

So that's it! I'm officially on a spending ban as we really need to watch our finances for the next few months, what with me being a stay-at-home mother and all!
