Okay so before my recent holiday to Cyprus my fantastic friend Kelly suggested to me that we should begin to browse our local charity shops in search of a bargain! Now this idea immediately aroused the inner bargain hunter within me, and as sad is it seems was even a topic of discussion during our on holiday!
On Saturday just passed I had a spare half an hour in town before I was to meet my mum. I spotted a British Heart Foundation Charity Shop close by, so decided I would take this time to go and peruse the isles and see what was available.
I was amazed to see just how many bargains there really are out there, and all at such low prices. As the Grinch (One of mine and kels faves shame its a Christmas film lol) once said 'one man's junk is another mans pot pourri' lol and this was certainly the case!
I managed to find a T shirt style top which originally was from Zara, but cost me only £2.80 which is only a snip of what the full retail price would have been. You can see from the pictures above, just how super cute this top is. As you can imagine I was over the moon with this purchase! So a big THANK YOU KELLY! (KELANJO19)your a star!! :) xx

(After application: Ok so I couldnt decide between both colours so in the end I chose both! )
(3 Days later and only 1 major chip! cant be bad!
I recently purchased 2 nail vanishes from the Collection 2000 Hot Looks collection, another impulse purchase may I add! :/. I had to limit myself to only 2 shades, all thanks to being the proud owner of a low bank balance :(
The colours I chose were a lovely creamy lilac colour named Dynasty and a really light turquoise shade called Button Moon.
This range polishes have begun to cause quite a stir within the beauty blogger community because of the fantastic selection of colours. I would describe these polishes to be, 'just that little bit different'.
There have been mixed reviews on to the durability and application of these polishes so I wanted to give my opinion on this.
I found that the consistency of the polish was quite thick,therefore not a lot of product was needed to achieve a good solid colour.
As for the durability of the product after 3 days only one chip was visible on my thumb nail. This I thought was fantastic considering I have a cleaning job in the evening which means my hands are in water and cleaning products the duration of the night.
I have included some picture above of what my nails looked like after application and then what they looked like 3 days later.
I highly recommend these polishes as they are gorgeous all round, they also cost under £2.00 so are a real bargain :)
