Mini Boots Haul

Hello again! It's been a while hasn't it? > . < I've recently discovered the arts and humanities library of my university, and have been doing all of my work up there. Usually I work in the boring 70s style science library, but last week I went up to the arts and humanities one and fell in love. It looks like Hogwarts, it has high ceilings, big wooden tables and tall bookcases between the tables filled with old books. So despite feeling like a bit of an outsider at first (being a science student after all) I've decided it's my new favourite space to work.

This week my friend visited me and we went shopping (shockingly :P). I managed to restrain myself until we popped into Boots and she found the magical discount shelf. I didn't even know there was a discount shelf until she found it! It was sneakily hidden right at the back past all the baby things. I bought five things and because I had loads of advantage card points saved up I didn't have to spend anything.

I've been wanting to try a salt spray out for ages now (Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray is on my wish list), so I decided to grab these mini Charles Worthington Front Row travel ones. I tried it on wet hair and it didn't work as well as I had hoped, probably because I was in a rush to go out and didn't blow dry it roughly enough (as per the instructions), my friend however used it dry and it really brought out her natural waves, so I'm looking forward to giving this another go.

I also picked up the Umberto Giannini Sleek & Chic Easy Straight Blow Dry Spray, and I am in love. I've used it twice now and it really does smooth and keep my hair straight when I blow dry it. This product makes my hair look like I've put more effort into it than I actually have, always a plus!

I needed a new clear nail polish, so Rimmel's Lycra Pro polish was a pretty straightforward buy. I'm giving my nails a breather at the moment so I haven't tried it yet.

Finally I decided to get a Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe. This is my first colour tattoo, despite the fact that I've been meaning to get one for months now. I really like this colour, it's a really great neutral shade, also (and somewhat weirdly) I really like the smell, not something I usually look for in an eyeshadow, but this one does smell good...

Hope you're all having a great day!
