We set out for our little shopping trip yesterday with a thrifty mindset and a small budget. Four hours later that all went out the window! We’ve added links where the items are available online, otherwise you’ll have to hit the highstreet and track them down yourself!
Red links are Amie’s treats and blue are Gemma’s treasure, black things we both picked up!
In our defence we did start off well so first up is the charity shop treasure we found. Our intention was to find things we could craftily turn into cake stands and we did at least succeed in that.
Candle stick – £1.50
Studded belt – £1.25
Glass plates – £1
After that it all started to go downhill (at least for our bank balances, our mood certainly went uphill!) when we dared to venture into Superdrug. 3 for 2 on cosmetics is too good of an offer to resist really isn’t it.

It was a complete accident that we fell into Sallys and happened to find two OPI Rock Goddess sets.We’ve been lusting over this for ages and it’s always out of stock so we grabbed them gleefully and spent the next ten minutes talking ourselves out of getting the Mariah Christmas sets too (with a promise that we will get them next time…)
OPI Rock Goddess -£12.95
The poundland search for Revlon nail varnish came up trumps as always and we chose two gorgeous shades at a massive discount.
Revlon Scented Varnish in Grape Fizz – £1.00
Revlon Matte Suede in Fire Fox – £1.00
We then realized that all the charity shops were closed and that we had sort of diverted from our immediate task with the promise of cosmetics, so we decided a quick peek around home bargains might bring us some last minute treasure.
Gemspa body butter in Calming Amber – £0.99
Halloween shot glasses – £0.59
Craft storage box – £0.59
Star cookie cutters – £0.99
Drawer dividers – £0.99
Seeing as we DID get what we set out for, and found a whole host of treasure all at super bargain prices I don’t think we did too badly! A whole bunch of swatches and reviews will be coming very soon!
Totally hellbent for shopping trips with a bad influence
