Payday Haul

37 comments
Hey Everyone,
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
If you follow me on Twitter you will probably know that I was completely skint throughout the month of January. Well I finally got payed on Wednesday and was able to go shopping again!
I lasted a whole month without spending any money, so I can only imagine how difficult it is for the Beauty Bloggers doing the spending ban. I really take my hat off to you and am loving all your spending ban updates!
The first thing I'd like to share with you that I got are these Yankee Candles. I bought them from Clintons. I know a lot of people buy them online, but as I'd never bought a Yankee Candle before I wanted to smell them before buying. Here are the ones I ended up getting:
I've been burning these candles this weekend and I find that they don't smell as strong as I'd like. I don't know if that's cos they are still brand new and I need to burn them a bit longer or because of the fragrances I chose. If you have any thoughts on this please let me know in the comments below!
As you can see I also bought a lot of nail polish!
There's a little story behind this. For the past 10 years or so I 've been getting acrylics or shellac done on my nails. But as I was so broke last month had my acrylics taken off and got a manicure instead. I really liked the manicure so I decided to buy some nail polish and start doing my own nails from now on. This also means I can do NOTD (Nails of the Day) posts now!
These are the colours I picked up:
I also picked up these items that were recommended to me on one of the general #bbloggers Twitter chats on Wednesday nights.
I will be doing a separate review on these product so I won't talk about them too much now.
The last product I picked up on my little shopping trip was probably one of the most blogged about products for the month of January! These are the Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquers.
They are on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots at the moment but as most colours were sold I only picked up the colour Celestial. Again I am going to do a separate post on this so I won't go on about it too much now!
Well this is everything I picked up on payday. I hope you've enjoyed reading this post. Let me know what you think and if you've got any nail polish recommendations I'd love to hear them!

  4. Love all the nail polish colors! I've never burned a Yankee Candle but I heard they're always so overpowering so maybe the scent throws on the candles you've chosen are just really weak? It's strange but sometimes that happens with lighter scents :/ And agh, I want those Apocalips to come to the States right now! They sound absolutely amazing!

    1. I think so cos the scent of all of them isn't very strong so they must be lighter scents like you said. I really hope the Apocalips come to the US soon you guys will love them :) xxx
