Mini Springtime Haul

Technically I shouldn't be shopping because I have Korea in less than a week (!!!!! exciting !!!!!), but I only spent £8 on this haul as two things were free gifts and one was a pressie. So I'll get cracking on the haul :P

I'll start with my free gifts, I don't quite understand why I got these, the shop assistant explained it to me a couple of times....but I'm still a bit lost :P I think it was a special event at The Body Shop when I visited, and if I got a body shop card (usually £5, but I got mine for free) I'd get a discount, and free gifts for joining. So I picked up my mums Mother's Day pressie (which you can see here ).


I picked up a Body Butter duo, in Sweet Pea. I didn't actually know what Sweet Pea smelt like until I received this (and I love it :P) it's a really gentle floral scent. Because it's a duo there's a side for normal skin and a thicker cream on the other side for dry skin. That's the only flaw I see in the product, I use the dry skin cream on less areas than the normal skin side, so I think it would have been better to only have a quarter of the pot as a dry skin section. I can see myself using up the normal skin cream a lot faster than the dry skin section.

The second free gift I got was the White Musk Libertine body mist, I'm not usually a fan of body mists, but this one smells quite appealing, although it does have a talcum powder after smell (which I can't help but associate with my grandma :P). So I've been using this as a slight spritz over my clothes in my wardrobe (I like spraying my clothes to make them smell nice :P).

The next three things I bought myself. I've been craving pastels since it started getting warmer, but I couldn't allow myself to buy clothes, so I bought the cheaper alternative of nail polishes. I got these three Barry M nail polishes for £2.99 each, bargain :D I got : Mint Green (304), Berry (203) and Lemon (307). I love these so much, I can't stop looking at them and smiling :P I love springtime and warm weather :). However with all Barry M polishes I need a few layers to get a good colour.



Finally I got this gorgeous summer dress from Republic. This was the gift :) My boyfriend bought me this to wear in Korea because he'd seen me looking at it when we went shopping earlier in the week ^ - ^ I'm not seeing him for a whole month now because he's gone home for a shoulder operation and I've got my Korea holiday > . < I'll buy him loads of pressies from Korea :P



Not a huge haul (when I allow myself I can buy an awful lot more.... I fear to imagine how much I'll be buying in Korea :P), but a few good things in it :)

I hope everyone is getting in the Springtime mood! I know I am :P
