The best things in life are free...

Hello Beauties!

This is a bit of a mini haul, I went for a my local shopping centre which obviously meant that I would be spending some money :(

I've almost finished my Volume Million Lashes and thought what better time to stock up than when there's a 3 for 2 jobby going on in superdrug.  So I picked up two and got the new Loreal Nude Magique BB cream for free (£9.99) I got the one for Fair skin tones as the medium was way to orange for my skin and even swatching the fair it seemed just a tad dark but it claims to adapt to the skin so I'm hoping it'll do that on the face.  My skin's been pretty good recently so I've been rewarding it by applying as little makeup as possible and this seemed like a good compromise between me not being able to leave the house completely bare faced and me caking on the foundation like war paint! I will let you guys know how I get on with this as it's my first dip into the BB world.

I Had to make a bee-line towards primark obviously because one day of relatively tepid weather and I just needed some cute sandals in my life!

I picked up these cute, nude coloured ones for £2.50

And these lovely Jade green ones for £4.00

I also saw these cute sunnies for £2.00 and thought...Meh why not?  Now I just need the sun to come out please! *flutters eyelashes*

I also picked up this glass nail file from poundland, I wanted to see what all the glass nail file hype was all about and thought what better than two for a pound! ncluding is a large file and a mini and they're pink! :D It's the simple things that make me happy...

Best of all I was browsing through the magazine racks in superdrug and saw that Marie Claire were giving away a Neal's Yard Rose moisturiser free with the mag.  I used to use this back in my first year of uni and it was wonderful, as I smell it now I'm getting flashbacks of summer in Halls playing table tennis in the common room or sitting on me bed revising with the sun shining through and the wind blowing through the open windows...ok my moment of nostalgia over this cream smells gorgeous and luxurious, is brilliantly hydrating and you only ever need the tiniest amount! You will honestly feel as though you've slathered a hundred rose petals on your face and your skin will thank you for it.  I'm currently in the process of using up my lancome moisturiser so I'm saving this for warmer weather. I'm so happy I got this and for only £3.70! Bargain!

If you know me, and some of you know me all too well, then you'll know my skin is very dry and sensitive and clinique should be thanked immensely for being so kind to my poor skin!  So when I saw that Cosmopolitan were giving away two mini sized clinique products I thought, I'll have me some of that! I picked the one which had the mascara instead of the lipgloss just because I never really use lipgloss (I'm more of a balm and tint kind of girl) and I've actually tried this mascara before so I know It's brilliant.  I also got the 7 day scrub cream exfoliator because I've just run out of my St Ives apricot scrub and thought this would last me a couple of weeks before I picked up my St Ives again!

So girls, the best things in life are deffo free I'd say, I'd recommend picking up these mags just for the freebies!  what things have you guys picked up recently?

I also had a browse through Topshop's makeup and there were so many things that I wanted I thought I'd better do my research on this one!  Have any of you lovely ladies got any topshop makeup recommendations for me as knowing me I'll probably end up picking up everything!
