Bought, Did, Tried #3

This week seems to have absolutely flown by and we’ll soon be into February! I can’t wait as I’ve got a few things planned for Feb including a hotel break with Adam for some ‘us’ time, a lunch with some lovely bloggers I met at my East Midlands Meet Up back in November, Millie’s got her first birthday party to attend and I’m also going down to London to see some of my old uni friends! So it’s going to be a busy, busy month! 

 This week I eventually got myself a new hairdryer as mine stinks and is covered in sticky stuff from where products have leaked. This gorgeous tiger print Mark Hill one is perfect and it was only £17.99 from Boots! I also got a medium roller brush too to help control my new do! (£5.99 Boots) The New Revlon Matte Lip crayons were also on offer at £7.99 and 3-4-2 so I tested the pigmentation and was instantly impressed! 
My dresser got waaaay too messy for my liking this week so I had a little move around and organised my make-up that lives in there. I still have more in a little wooden set of drawers from Ikea but I literally can’t fit anymore in my drawer! 

 I finally tried all of the products that were in the Origins Make A Difference set I got in the Sales (£19.39 Boots) and have been impressed with the moisturiser and the hand lotion. The Drink up Mask i’m not too keen on as my face feels sticky when I wake up! It doesn’t seem to have broke me out in any spots though which is a bonus! Look out for a better review on these soon! 

 I’ve started a new book this week, along with my uni work, and it’s Katie Price’s Autobiography - Love, Lipstick and Lies. I’m only about 10 pages in but I have general sympathy for her and what she had to put up with whilst dating Alex Reid! If you’re a fan of her or even just want to know the real story about what went on between her and Pete, you should definitely get this! 

What have you been up to this week!?

  1. I've been looking at new hairdryers recently as mine is around 7 years old! This one's a bargain for £17.99, although I have been tempted by the GHD hairdryer...

  4. So lucky to have found Origins sale items, nowhere near me stocked the gift sets this year! The Overnight Drink Up Mask works wonders for my very dry skin, can't wait to see your full reviews.

    1. I didn’t think they’d have it as they don’t normally stock Origins but it was in the sale racks and I got one as soon as I saw it!
