We're Going Shopping, Loser!

It's April Fool's Day! I haven't pulled a prank in many years, but it's still a phrase I say. Bit weird that, isn't it? Anyhoo, I'm not here to discuss April Fool's Day, but to show you a tiny shopping spree I had last week. I'd checked my Boots app whilst bored on the bus, and saw a new notification about a triple points event. I'm currently trying to save my points up, so I fell head first into Boots to hit the required spend! 

I've been wanting a pocket mirror for ruddy ages, after losing my adorable Hello Kitty one. There were some really modest mirrors in there, but I had to get this bright pink Models Own compact mirror. On the website it looks orange - which I would have actually preferred! - but mine is definitely pink. The Elegant Touch false nails were on buy one get one free, so naturally I got two packs. I actually picked the slate grey nails for a night out that never happened, sob, and I just couldn't resist the easter egg inspired nails! I think you can guess when I'll be wearing those.

I'm a bit nail mad, so I couldn't stop at just two nail purchases. I'd wanted this No7 Nail Care Ridge Filling Base since I'd first heard all about it, so I snapped that up. My nails are generally fine, but sometimes nail polish just doesn't sit properly and I'm hoping this fixes it. You can't tell in this picture, but the dark looking No7 nail polish is actually a beautiful shimmery blue. It's quite dreamy, but now I'm thinking it might be too dark for spring. 

Last two beauty products now! I've been wanting to experiment with my eyebrows, so I picked up this L'Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit in medium/dark. I'm a bit scared to try it, as I'm a complete novice when it comes to brows, but the reviews have all been pretty good. I usually complain about my lack of top lip, but I really liked the look of these Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque liquid lipsticks. I plumped for the first shade, which is a peachy nude - I think! 

So there we have it! Have you picked up any new beauty goodies recently?
