A Cheeky Anniversary Haul

A Cheeky Anniversary Haul

Soooo it was our 3rd wedding anniversary on Friday 6th June. We don't normally buy each other cards and presents, we just usually spend the day together somewhere nice instead. So Martin took the day off work and we decided to head into Newcastle for the day for bit of shopping and some food & drinks. George went to my Mam's for the day and night so we could have a few drinks and take our time which was lovely. The weather was absolutely beautiful and boiling so we're really glad we went, as yesterday was constant rain all day! Obviously, I couldn't go to Newcastle without getting a few little treats, especially as we don't have as many good shops in Middlesbrough. Here's what I got...

A Cheeky Anniversary Haul

The first place I headed was Superdrug, where I picked up a cheap smokey-eye brush, as I liked the look of the angled end (ideal for eyeliner & eyebrows). I can't seem to find it on the Superdrug website, but it was only £2.99 and it's double ended - fab! I then headed to the Sleek stand, which was the reason I went in. They do have a Sleek stand in my local store, but it's always practically empty and there's never anything I want in stock. I was lucky enough to grab the very last Eyebrow Stylist, and it just happened to be in medium and with £2 off. If that's not fate I dunno what is tbh! The next placed I toddled along to was The Body Shop, as I had an email about the 50% off sale, PLUS a code for 40% off non-sale items (14669). I grabbed their Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil, something I've had my eye on since it was released a few months ago! Whilst I was there I also noticed the Elderflower Eye Gel and remembered reading about it being a best seller. I don't suffer terribly with under eye circles or bags, but sometimes (especially with having a toddler who wakes early, and being a contact lense wearer), my eyes take a little bit longer to wake up in the morning, so I'm hoping this helps! Next was my most exciting purchase, something that's been on my wishlist for a long long time - MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup! Oh Em Gee! I can't believe I've left it so long to get this, I absolutely ADORE it. I think it looks so pretty and the formula is so moisturising and creamy. I think it's perfect for everyday, but will also look great on a night teamed with a smokey eye! Full review coming soon but I'm sure you've all already read about how wonderful it is. Last but not least, a shopping trip would not be complete without a trip to LUSH, but I didn't wanna go overboard as I'd already spent a cheeky bit more than I should have. Obviously I had to go and have a little sniff around the bath bombs, and I ended up walking away with The Comforter Bubble Bar, as it's one I've never tried, and I you gotta have a bath full of bubbles. I also picked up the Tea Tree Toner Water as I'd heard great things about it. I got the small version as I'm not sure how my skin will take to it, and I love how you can get smaller versions to try them out first.

So that's all for my haul. Hope I don't make you all shopping-broody lol.
