Saturday Spending | Mini Haul

Pay Day for me, at the moment is every Friday. As much as I thought this would be amazing, knowing that I have money every week – It’s not been as great as I thought. It literally just means that I spend more every week. This weekend, has been no exception. Firstly, £100 was bitterly taken from me for rent this month by my parents… I never knew how difficult it would be handing over that amount. I’m so grateful that my Dad doesn’t ask for more.

Secondly, my Dad has decided to join our local gym again, it’s a private, members-only health centre, hidden in the countryside behind our house. More money than I care to think of has left my hands because of this. I’m determined to make the most of it. Gym and Swim at least 3 nights a week it is. More on this in my ‘Healthy Living’ posts though…

With a blink of an eye and a single transaction at the hole-in-the-wall , half of what I’d been paid Friday is now gone. Yet I still couldn’t help myself when I traipsed into New Look and saw these gorgeous shoes.

I am not the normal party-girl teen that goes out every weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I love a night out and every couple of months I will go out, have a great night and get absolutely obliterated. But because of my not so adventurous party life, I don’t feel the need to go spending ridiculous amounts on shoes. I know – What kind of girl am I? But honestly, I don’t. I own about 6 pairs of shoes in total – 7 now, but apart from 2, they’re all flats. 3 pairs of Vans, a pair of Puma’s and a pair of brown suede ankle boots.  So when I bought my first ‘proper’ pair of heels, Miss Selfridge ankle boots, that are about a million inches high, that was me sorted. They cost me £30 in the sale and have lasted me a good two years. And will keep lasting me…
But now I have these bad boys. You know when you just get drawn to something, try it on and never had a doubt that you wouldn’t buy it anyway? Yep, these platform heels did that to me. Even sat on the seats in New Look, buckling up the straps, I already knew they were going to be in my possession very soon. And I was right.

The last thing I bought this weekend was the EcoTools starter set. I already have one of their brushes and couldn’t resist when I saw this kit in Boots. Such a bonus that they’re all brushes that I’ve been ‘needing’. The kit includes a Blush Brush, Concealer Brush, Angled Liner Brush, Eyebrow and Lash Groomer and an eye shadow brush. I already have the EcoTools Tapered Blush Brush and as I use that solely for my blush, this second blush brush is perfect for my bronzer. Although I also have many eye shadow brushes, you can never have to many, especially if you’re as lazy as me when it comes to washing them!

I’ve been good in the long run, this weekend, but have still spent a hefty amount – oops. 

What have been your naughty purchases recently?
