Boots Advantage Points Event

Hello Everyone,

I know it’s been a really long time, life has caught up I’m afraid and while I’ve had a great couple of years, coupled with an effort by myself to stop buying so much makeup, this blog became sadly neglected. I began to get the itch to write again when a couple of weeks back Boots held one of their amazing points events where you get £10 worth of points for a £50 spend, I missed the chance to post about it but, surprise surprise, they’re holding another one this Thursday! So I thought I’d better fire off a quick post now while I still have the chance.

This isn’t as good as the £7.50 worth of points for £30 spend that they’ve had in past summer points events but it’s better than Triple Points events and 10 points per £1 events as well, so if you missed out on the same event that happened a couple weeks ago now’s your chance to get it! I’ve scouted out a few good deals/promos that are going on at Boots now too, so you can double up your savings:

Quick Lil Deal Alert – Free Dolce by Dolce and Gabbana Perfume Sample

Happy Weekend!!

I’m super excited about it finally being the weekend although I’ve already a ton on my to-do list for Saturday and Sunday is always almost totally taken up by church, which can be lovely but is also very tiring. Our church is so tiny it’s like a little community and everyone really needs to pitch in so service and bible study can keep running, all in it’s almost like a 2nd job. But I’m digressing from the deal for today which is a great freebie perfume sample of the new Dolce by Dolce and Gabbana fragrance!

How gorgeous is that promo image and also that bottle??? Very simple and understated I’d say. Apparently it’s inspired by elegance and youthful vitality and I think I can see the elegance in the monochromatic and simple design, as for the youthful vitality hmmm… I guess the bow and daisies are rather youthful? Not very ‘vital’ though!

Deal Alert for the Ladies – Free Pack of Always Dailies

Hello Everyone!

Whow, TGIF! I’ve had back to back rehearsals all week and this is going to go on for another couple of weeks, I love it but it’s been pretty knackering so I’m looking forward to the weekend. Except I’ve also a pile of admin work to get to this weekend so… >_< oh dear! Anyway, detracting from the issue at hand… today I have for you a lovely deal which is a completely free pack of Always Dailies Pantyliners!

Lol, this is totally for ladies only (unless you’re a man who wants to get some for your sister or girlfriend or wife or something but what are the odds of that?!).

Bargain Alert – Boots 3 for 2 (and how to shop it)

Morning Everyone!

Hands up, I love it when Boots has a 3 for 2 and I straight up cannot resist it. In fact, I find it hard to resist any good sale or offer (practically kicked myself for missing Kiko’s amazing offer over Valentine’s weekend!), because the rest of the time I feel I’m very, very good. I have a massive wishlist and I never get anything on it until it does on offer. Don’t buy anything full price girls! And now Boots has a 3 for 2 on so I thought I’d share with you what I’m eyeing to get.

3 for 2 mix & match It’s not just skincare by the way! It’s 3 for 2 on makeup as well! Definitely a great offer but a bit too much choice, eep.3 for 2 mix & match And haircare oh my goodness me… I think the main trouble with these offers is to resist being tempted into buying something you wouldn’t have bought anyway. I’m obviously a penny-pincher (the blog title says it all!) and yet even I have the odd bit of makeup in my bathroom that I’ve never, ever used. Oh the shame… it’s just a waste, isn’t it?

Boots Star Gift #11 Dec 13 – Soap and Glory the Yule Monty Set

Happy Happy Friday and Hurrah for the Weekend!

I’m so incredibly tired, not yet rested from the trip to the Lake District and I’m already facing a tough job of filming/editing/rehearsing for our church Christmas play this Sunday *eep*, then I’m flying off to spend Christmas with family next Tuesday.

I do somehow wish that I could have, say, 2 full weeks’ rest from everything and anything – y’know, just a holiday with nothing on my mind! But I know it wouldn’t work out like that, I tend to fill up any spare time with work so I only have myself to blame really.

But on with the Star Gift Post! Which I know you’re all waiting eagerly for 😉

In fact, this week’s gift is the very eagerly anticipated (yes, you guessed it, it’s finally here) amazing Soap and Glory bundle set – the Soap and Glory Yule Monty Set!!!


The much-anticipated Soap and Glory bundle!

Down to £27 from £60 (that’s pretty amazing, I have to agree), the set includes:
