This may not be my most exciting haul, but it's definitely my cheapest. Very recently I discovered Treat Street, an online service created by Boots that allows you to gain advantage card points on things other than Boots purchases. You simply register, download the toolbar and then activate it when you're on one of their cooperating sites, such as Boohoo.com, iTunes, ASOS, or even thetrainline.com. Now I for one have spent a lot of money on trains over the past three years, and I only wish I had known about Treat Street sooner! Nevertheless, the amount of points I've gained through booking endless train tickets to and from the Midlands meant that today's purchases came with a £0 price tag. It. Felt. Good.
(Max White One Optic toothpaste, Colgate, £4.49; Milk & Honey lipbalm, Nivea, £1.99; Nail varnish in Optic Wave, nails inc., Free!; Lasting Finish by Kate Moss lipstick in 03, Rimmel, £5.49)
As you can see I purchased one of Kate Moss' Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks in 03, which is a brownish nude. In all honesty I do struggle to find nudes that suit me and tend to go for pale glosses or bright coloured lipsticks instead, but fingers crossed this will be the nude to change things! I also grabbed a Nivea Milk & Honey lipbalm after hearing Gabby over at velvetgh0st saying how much she loved it in this video. Finally I bought some toothpaste. Not very haul-worthy, I hear you mutter. It is when it comes with a free nails inc. polish, I retort. I was given the choice between a bright orange (which I would have gone for had I not already owned a colour almost identical) and this gorgeous turquoise. All in all, I paid for nothing, then got something for free. Boots, I love you.
