So, I went on a huge post-birthday shopping spree on Saturday to the carboot sale and to town as well, and I picked up quite a few vinyls, bits of make-up and pieces of clothing so I thought I'd share what I got with fellow bloggers/casual viewers. I'll talk about the items from the different places grouped, and then take a little individual look at all of them. So here we go:
So, on Saturday morning I decided to tag along with my mum and brother to the local carboot sale in hope of some bargains. For anyone that doesn't know what they are, it's basically people bring their stuff they want to sell onto a stall, and you go around and look at all this different stuff and buy whatever you want. So like the English equivalent of a yard/jumble sale. So, the first purchase I made was from this man who had about four boxes of vinyls! I sifted through them and firstly found the Grease soundtrack which I had to have as it's my favourite ever movie, especially because of the songs! However, I soon came across ANOTHER Grease vinyl in his collection and swapped it with this one because it was slightly better quality. He had a box full of dance singles as well and I picked out 'Thunder In My Heart Again' by Meck ft. Leo Sayer as I love that song, quite a recent one too, only about 8 years old. These were about £2 each I think. Next, we found another box of vinyls, and my brother actually purchased a couple - Michael Jackson 'Off the Wall' and a Jackson 5 album, he loves them! In this box I managed to find John Lennon & Yoko Ono's 'Double Fantasy' album and he was selling it for just £1! Lastly, I found this guy in a Beatles shirt (loved him already) and found quite a few Beatles records in his collection that I bought: 'A Hard Day's Night', 'Help!', 'Abbey Road' and 'Let It Be' and he charged £20 for them all, which is pretty decent as I found some vinyls in HMV for like £15 EACH! He presumed I was buying them for my dad though and was extremely shocked that I had a record player - I'm such a granny haha. This is definitely the place to come for bargains.

So, I was most definitely NOT expecting make-up at the carboot sale! But a VERY popular stall there was an Avon lady who had two HUGE boxes of make-up! It was 5 items in a certain box for £2 and any other items were 50p, so I got four nail polishes plus a body butter as my 5 items, and a body spray as an extra item, so all of this costed me just £2.50 and none of the make-up she was selling was used, so what a bargain! The products I got were:
Soap & Glory - The Righteous Butter 50ml body butter
AVON Nailwear Pro - Coral Reef nail polish
Bourjois Paris - Shock Resistant Nail Enamel #30
17 High Gloss - Risky Red nail polish
Star Nails Attitudes - Sea Breeze nail polish
fcuk polished body spray - 75ml
So, I was actually going into Superdrug with the intention of FINALLY buying Tanya Burr's Little Duck nail polish so was absolutely gutted when I asked a lady in there and she told me that they had just stopped stocking her products! I was desperate for a mint green or turquoise nail polish though, so I had a look around and eventually settled on the Essie Turqoise & Caicos nail lacquer, which was only a couple of pounds more expensive at £7.99. I shall try it out this weekend and hopefully it was worth the purchase! The other intention of wanting to come to Superdrug is that I needed a lipstick, and all I knew is that I wanted it to be dark, so I had a search around and ended up buying the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Glam Plum Fulham #470 for £6.49. I would HIGHLY recommend it if you're looking for quite a vampy purple, as it's highly pigmented and comes out just the right shade of purple - in my opinion not too light which is hard to pull off, and not too dark therefore not too dramatic. I'll probably do swatches for these when it comes to August favourites!

So finally, after trailing through the shops, I went to old faithful New Look. I had a look around and spotted two pairs of trousers that I really had my eye on! In the end I decided to get both of them, of course! The trousers pictured on the left of the photo above are the Petite Dogtooth Leggings and they were £14.99. They're SO comfy and as a monochrome lover they are brilliant! On the right are Acid Wash Supersoft Skinny jeans that costed £22.99. I adore them, they fit just right and are SO 80's! Plus they go really well with a pink shirt I have.
So that's all guys! Really hoped you enjoyed this haul! I look forward to using all these things this month. Have you guys bought anything recently? Found any bargains like me? Like any of these products in particular?
