DD day.

Sunday 9 October 2011


This week was a momentous moment in any new Boots employee's life… Double Discount Day, the day on which our 11.5% on non-boots brands and 22.5% on boots own ranges discount is doubled, meaning huge savings and a chance to build up those all important Boots points. And what do points make…? Prizes!

I accumulated a huge pile of ‘must haves’ in my basket and I am a little ashamed to say I spent £70 in one go, although to reassure myself, I did buy my sister things and a few uber-early Christmas presents too! The huge basket was originally priced at £99 so there was a huge saving of £29, not so bad when you think of it like that!


I let my self go a little crazy on the makeup front, but hey its only once a year! I picked up a few of the goodies I'd been lusting after for yonks now and after acumalating a few more precious points I treated myself to Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten, which at £13 a pop isn't something I would usually spend my dosh on.


Another favourite buy was the Revlon lipstick in Smoked Peach, a beautiful beautiful dark coral, peach, warm toned colour which so perfect for autumn as darker lips become a must have.


I also picked up the much raved about John Freida Go Blonder Lightening Spray, after much wondering of what colour it will turn my dark blonde/light brown hair and I will possibly be trying out a kind of ombre effect with this if it goes well! Another purchase was the Seche Vite Top Coat, a much needed item in my life!

After all this spending rest assured there will not be any more ‘haul’ type post for a good few months (fingers crossed!) as my mother simply wont allow it!

Have a good week! ♥


  1. looks like theres some good buys there:)
    wish i could spend all that in one go!xx


  2. Woah, that's a lot of stuff! That lippy looks gorgeous :) x

  3. I love the feeling of filling your basket with a bunch of goodies thinking that you won't pay the full prize! (:

  4. This is a really huuuuuuuuuudge haul!!

  5. That Stila Smudge Pot looks gorgeous. I may have to go and look for one myself. Sounds like working at Boots has some awesome benefits.

  6. Ah, I feel your guilt! ;)
    Today I spent some dosh on a bit from Primark etc. although mostly clothes, since I didn't allow myself to walk into Boots or Superdrug although I have plenty on my Chrismas wish list at the moment!! But maybe didn't spend as much as you did. Haha! One very big haul post coming up...

  12. Thankyou for posting this! Iv only used it about 5 times and it has definitely made me more blonde, but my hair is a bit dry! A hairdresser i know also said it wasnt the best product for the health of my hair so iv stopped using it, but i do love the effect! xxx

  13. Be careful with the Sheer Blonde Go Blonder, I used it before and it made my hair really dry. When I went to the hair dresser and told them I used it pretty much every time I washed my hair he actually gasped in horror lol :) I didnt even think about it but you're actually putting peroxide in your hair and then leaving it in for 1 or 2 days, no wonder its bad for it :)
