Hitting the Sales

I’ve hit the sales today, and picked up some tasty bargains! Here is my run down of what I have picked up today. Today is the only day I am sale shopping, as I am starting saving for a very special trip from now on… more on that another day!


I’ve had my eye on the Liberty – Hello Kitty collection for several months, but somehow I have resisted until the sale. I really wanted the blue wash bag to make up a set (I got a mini and a big one last year) and this one is just the right medium size for travelling. It had sold out online on Boxing Day, so I went to town to see if I could find it, I did, and I ‘found’ some other goodies while I was there…

The wash bag comes with body butter, body scrub, bubble bath and one of those net scrunchie things (given to my Mama to clean her greenhouse with!).

This make up set comes in a little pencil case featuring the pink paisley Hello Kitty design. There is a lip gloss, lip tint and a mini palette of eyeshadows. I’ve not swatched these yet, they look OK though (if you ignore the bright turquoise one!). I want the case to use for my work make up bag (to keep my emergency items close at hand).

This was an impulse buy… With sets like this the brushes tend to shed a lot, but we’ll see. If they do, I will put my existing brushes in the pouch. I’ve been getting really frustrated with how dusty and dirty my brushes get when I’m travelling and I cant fit them in my normal make up bag. I’m hoping this little set will help sort out this problem. I like how the brushes have a little plastic cover over them to stop bits getting to them.

Here is a detail shot of each of the Hello Kitty fabric designs:

This is a tshirt I have lusted after for months and months it seems, and I found it reduced in the Fox and Feather sale!

And finally…

I’m working on my 30 before 30 list on this one. I have ordered a new Canon 60D DSLR! I shopped around and asked for some recommendations, and I found a great deal 🙂 My Christmas bonus covered it *just* so it really is more like a Christmas present to myself. I am stupidly excited about it arriving and getting to play with the HD video and all the different features it has compared to my 400D.

So that’s my sale haul! Seven items in total, there could have been more, but I restrained myself. Have you been to the sales?
