Temptations I couldn’t pass up on today

IMG_2098

Today, we had to go into the city to buy a present for my boyfriend’s father’s 60th birthday and we had no ideas as to what we were going to buy for him, so we had to take the full tour of the shopping street – meaning stumbling upon a few temptations, some of which we couldn’t walk by however hard we tried.

We got these two mason jars which we were going to use for spaghetti – turns out the tall one isn’t tall enough for the spaghetti, so we’ll have to decide if we don’t mind them sticking up a little or if we want to do something else with it. The smaller one is still going to hold pasta.

A new shop had opened, a tiny shop with what I like to call hippie-hardware – one-of-a-kind items that aren’t mass-produced – or with a look that is meant to fool you into thinking that. Nonetheless, these kind of shops have popped out everywhere lately, and I really like them. Anyways, this new one (where we also bought the mason jars) had these cute little plastic water bottles that we had to have.

Lastly, I couldn’t walk past the rack outside the book shop that had a 3 for 10 £ sale. I haven’t heard of any of the books, but they appear to be part of – or closely related to – the chick-lit genre, which is always a hit with me.

China Glaze Haul

Check out my new Facebook page!

FINALLY my package arrived! I’ve had to wait for it a lot longer than expected, but it was definitely worth it because it was filled with 7 new China Glaze polishes! Actually, these are my first China Glaze polishes ever, so I was very excited to try them out. I’d actually purchased 8, but one of them was out of stock, so I’ll have to wait a little while longer for that.

4 of the polishes are from their neon summer collection Electric Nights. I considered getting all, but sanity kicked in and I just went with my 5 favorite ones (one is the one out of stock) and then I got 3 others who were on sale.

These are the ones I got (picture-heavy post ahead): Continue reading

I’ve been shopping – again

Yesterday, was the day of tax returns. Yesterday, I “accidentally” looked in my local drugstores catalogue. You do the math. I’ve been shopping again.

For the first time in so long, I actually allowed myself to buy something when shopping. I’d set myself up for buying EVERYTHING, but I’m actually a little disappointed that I found so little I actually wanted to buy.
