Christmas Savings!


I would like to say that I have bought all of these products with my own money and am not endorsing any products or have been asked by any company to promote their products. And also the savings images are copyrighted to the websites - they do not belong to me!

First and foremost, I want to apologise for the standard of these photos. I was just so excited to write my first proper post that I took no consideration for lighting or a good camera. A good camera is not possible due to my non-existent income: I am at secondary (high school) and unable to buy one and I don't want to ask my parents for one - they're so expensive. So if anyone has any tips on how to improve pictures, please let my know. And for the lighting: it is winter just now and gets dark around 4-5 o'clock, when I'm returning from school. So most photography posts will take place at the weekend. Sorry for that!

I went shopping with my twin sister today as many teachers across Britain are striking today. Bad for exam prep, good for some retail therapy. In school, me and my friends are doing 'Secret Santa' and I selected a girl whom is new to the group and I don't really know. That was a problem! I was wavering between River Island's trio of Model's Own nail polishes for only £10 and something else ... But then I went into Boots and I saw their amazing 3 for 2 offer on their gifts and toys. I went about thirty minutes in the shop, trying to figure out what to get her and another friend who I was buying for. And then I spotted the FCUK The Woman Pampers giftset which contains were Signature range: Signature Bodywash (75ml), Signature Bodyspray (75ml), Signature Body Wash (75ml) and Signature Body Polish (75ml). I think this is fantastic value and the products are of great quality and smell! I hope she's happy with it.

The other two things I purchased for another friend (and got one free!) were The No7 and Poppy King Celebrate Balmy & Beautiful and the Sancutary Spa Perfect Sanctuary Essentials.

The No7 and Poppy King Celebrate Calmly Beautiful is a brilliant pressie for a friend who loves her expensive drug-store make-up. Bit of a contradiction there, sorry! It's a steal at just £10 and contains two lipstick, a multiple cheek stick and great blotting papers which are brilliant for those days when your skin just won't comply with your needs. Perfect for the real girly girls!

The Sancutary Spa Perfect Sanctuary Essentials is perfect for someone interested in treating their skin and keeping it soft and supple. It contains little bottles of Body WashFoaming Bath Soak, Body Scrub, Body Lotion and Luxury Bath Float. A great little set for only £10. Perfect for mothers, aunties and friends alike. Or maybe just as a little treat after hauling yourself around the shops all day!

I love Christmas and all the deals- they're great if you have a tight budget or maybe want to spend more on family instead of splashing out for friends. These are just some of the deals that are accessible near you:
