Boots/body shop - Make-up Haul !

So after all this saving money - there are just some offers a girl can not miss-out on!

Foundation - 3 for 2 On Maybelline so for these three I payed 14.98  =)

I have noticed that in the body shop stores they have make up in x-mas bags (can not see this online) and they will have say 2/3 items priced! The three make up items here were 20.00 (saving 8 pounds) and then when I got to the till as I was on my 4th bodyshop purchase (with my loyalty card) I was allowed to spend 5 pounds free =) so I got this vitamin E face scrub and payed the difference which was 3.00!!!

I had been wanting this brush for some time and I seen (If you spend 6.00 You got a free limited ed. Lip gloss) the brush was 6.19 so I thought BINGO !

If you spent 6.00 on no.17 You got that gorgeous free eye pallette - So as im into lipsticks I tried another colour from the 17 range and got a light mattish bronzer!

HOW GOERGEOUS IS THAT Pallette?? OMG and you get a mirror!
I also received from boots a FREE 2.00 HAIR CARE VOUCHER
and I got 144 Points - so thats almost another 1.50 back in points!

If you liked this post - PLEASE PLEASE 'HIT' follow for more offers and news etc etc.... =) x
Have a great x-mas - AIMEE !

December swapping is the new SHOPPING =)

I thought I would share with you some of my swapz for December!
People are quite rightly fighting back against higher VAT - and well totally being ripped off for a long time by companys charging ridiculous prices and selling a few items, rather than selling a lot at a reasonable price.
This is also the view of many swappers that I have spoken to !
- I for one am not going to be buying much any more - foundation as you cnt find the shade and brand sometimes through swaps sites. My phone contract will be coming down in Feb. Ive absolutly had enough of being taken for a ride!

So theory behind my swaps over....

1. I swapped all of the things you see here for my coat (Which I had on here previously)

2. B - Dazzeled and Bedroom - Cream eye shaddows.
Special ingredients in them - almond oil. water with rose petal infusion.

I dont know if you can call this a swap as a really nice lady on facebook offered to send me them free - but I said I couldnt have that and I WILL send her something back =)
(so now it is a swap) =)

                               3rd Swap: My sisters keeper DVD and Uraban Decay Products
- Swapped for 2 tops and 3 face masks =)

4th swap - Was fake items so Ive sent them back to the swapper !

I am just loving swapping at the min !! +)
I Have another swap on its way - Will edit this post when its here =)
Let me know about some of the swaps that You have done =)
Comments Welcome =) x

Forever 21 Birmingham, pound land, 99p store and lush

Birmingham Today.
I went to Forever 21. (The american store now has a shop in birmingham)
Everything is layed out so imaculatly. The floor is checkered black and white. There is things hung up in decorative alcoves. And there is like a huge lamp stand and under the giant lamp shade is head bands and many mirrors. The shop is stunning.

I looked at a few things and their prices and have to say accessories were the most reasonably priced thing
then jackets
I though bags were the most expensive thing.
Some gorgeous head bands in a x2 pack for 2.50 ( I though way hey post primark sheek) !!

I didnt buy anything though as I want money for the lush sale =) And I have received a letter telling me when my final bursery payment will be - as I am ment to graduate this yr (scary) so need to save for that. Im soooo scared to be possibly leaving uni but sooo excited at the same time to have money and be earning money!! I have also got my new placement which I know I will have to travel to (so need money to get there)
Hope no 1 things the things I brought are rubbish =(
There are also soo many enterances and exists to this shop its stupid - you can get lost and the security staff lok at every1 like shit! - To but it politley - maybe they were annoyed I didnt buy anything.

.LUSH.... Are in the dog house with me !

Last night on teh lush limited fan page it was announced that you can now get a 4.95 chunck of soap with the 5 black pots and not just a face mask ! I was trilled and straight away went off hunting for pots =)
I got 5 and decided I would ask in store what soap I should try - I think this is great for buisness as more people will try out new soaps where as with the face masks you can not just try any you have to have the one that suits your skin.

Anyway Lady at Birmingham store said we havent been told and i explained it was announced on lush limited fan page. And to top it off the face mask I wanted wasnt even avalible so I had to go to my next choice. I was very dissapointed as I only really use the face masks when I feel my skin needs a good seeing to!

Let me know if you have any experiences like this !

99p Store Bargains.

I got these shrek cookie cutters as part of my mums xmas present! she is into cake making etc and into making chocolate truffles! So I hoped she would be able to use this to cut out icing shapes for birthday cakes etc! On the back it says uk price 5.99 so I got 5 pounds off =) There was only 1 - Im sooo glad i got this for her! It is my dads birthday the day after im 21 (this march) so hopefully she will make him a shrek cake =)

Gorgeous Coat - Stunning Jacket - swap/sale

As its winter I know people will be looking for a coat/Jacket.
So I have 2 items here 12/14 sizes and would like to swap/sell them.
Images taken with camra phone wich has a black dot on it. This is not on the items its on my camra xxx

1. Jacket River Island, Size 14, Would fit a 12 Well.
Brillinatly made, excellent quality - heavy duty jacket - Will last a hell of a long time

I would describe condition as 'as new' no marks, no wear/tear.

Stunning design inside the jacket - v.small black crystals on the design inside of the coat !

Close up of the River Island logo on the popers! - As you can see everything on this coat is great quality and v.well made

Front of the coat ! I dont feel like the pic does it Justice - Has kind of a stunning fashionable frosted finished on the black of the jacket.


Item 2. The Leapord Print Coat. - Gorgeous.
says 14 inside . Would also fit a 12/14 nicely !

AS you can see here - this is the exact same coat - my pictures on my camra phone dont do the coat justice. !

The sleeves of the coat and the detail on them

The buttons of the coat and what the belt bow looks like when done up - im not good at tying bows though

The whole coat - Pictures does not do any of these items justice as taken on my camra phone =(

Please leave a comment if you are interested or email me =) Please tell me what swaps you have or cash offer =) thanks.
