In the true Harriet1984 tradition, I am here today with a haul. I went shopping with my mum, and I went a little crazy on things for my cheeky little man.
Luke is now 8 months old, and is easily fitting into 12month old clothes. Finding clothes for him is proving to be a nightmare. But, I was determined to find a few things that would benefit him in the Autumn, and into the Winter.
So the first place we went to was good old Primark, I have noticed people adding photos of bargains they had picked up, and I wanted to jump on that band wagon!
I grabbed a couple of shirts with long sleeves, and as my boy loves Mickey Mouse, I grabbed this shirt for £4. The Elmo shirt was a £1, along with the Little Guy, Big Attitude shirt. The long sleeved white shirt was a present from Nanny (my mum) who loves getting Luke things whenever she goes out!
Primark was its usual heaving self, so we quickly left to visit TKMaxx, which is another shop I love t pick up a bargain in.
I dont live anywhere near any of these stores, so I was very keen to jump in with the other bargain hunters to see what I could pick up!
All of these things for Luke came to £16, which is amazing.
Luke loves Disney channel, and we spend a lot of time snuggled on the sofa watching Mickey, Jake and Doc McStuffins. So when I spotted this book, I had to grab it! We looked at it before bedtime last night, and Luke was smiling at the pages. So for £4, I was impressed, as this book will keep him going for a few years yet!
The Mickey Mouse book I was semi-unimpressed with, due to the fact it is a ‘teach me drawing’ book, which Luke is obviously not ready for! But he loves looking at Mickey, and even gave the book kisses, so even if I put the book away for a little while until hes ready, this £3 bargain was definitely worth it!
When Luke had a doctors appointment last month, he was absolutely obsessed with the bead maze int he waiting room. I know that bead mazes are fabulous for fine motor skills, but Luke just likes to tip this maze upside down and lick the bottom of it! He’ll get used to it eventually! Still, another bargain at only £6!
The £3 zebra toy is awesome – it has a rattle, bells, beads, scrunchy things and its soft and durable, with an attachment to take it out and about. Luke loves exploring this toy, so I’m glad I picked it up! He has been playing with it for most of the weekend, so he seems to be happy with his new things! This also equals a very happy mummy!
The Lauren Luke palette was an absolute steal at £5.99 – RRP of £25!
I have been huge fan of Lauren’s since I began watching her on YouTube. She is one of the most friendliest and down to earth people I have watched, and was very proud of her when she announced that she had started her own make up line! I was really excited to get my hands on this palette – I will upload a separate review on this palette of anyone would be interested! (Just leave me a comment below!)
The palette is in ‘Sultry Blues’ which is completely out of my comfort zone as I love neutrals, but i have worn this palette and the colours are phenominal! Very Happy Panda!
I also took a little trip to Boots to have a look at their beauty stuff – a favorite past time of mine!
I was very excited to pick up the Real Techniques Cosmetic Sponge – I LOVE the Real Techniques brushes and I cannot wait to try this one out!
The Baby Lips are added to my every growing collection – I was so excited to hear they were coming to the UK, so on this shopping trip, I picked up the Hydrate Balm and the Pink Punch. I now have 3 of the UK releases….3 down, 3 to go!
And I got myself a new nail color – the Maybelline Colot Show varnish in Burgundy Kiss. Its a beautiful color, and I would have posted a photo of my nails, but I am still a novice when it comes to painting my nails. It looks like Luke did them!
Have you brought anything lately? What did you get?
