January Sales Haul!

The end of Christmas means the beginning of the sales! I've never been one for buying something on impulse just because it's cheaper than it should be, however I saw lots of things before Christmas that I wanted to try but thought I would hold off until the sales came! I'm really happy with what I bought so keep on reading to find out!
The first thing I bought I had been drooling over since I first saw it! I knew that after Christmas, regardless of whether it had been reduced or not I would buy it! It's the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette and luckily it was in the sales, I got it for £34 instead of £43! I didn't actually know that this was limited edition so I'm really glad I snatched it up when I did! I'm planning to do a swatch post on this palette soon so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I also went on a bit of a spending spree in the Yankee Candle shop too. I got a couple of votives that were half price because they were festive scents and I love them both so didn't want to miss out for another year. I bought 'Season of Peace' which is a comforting minty scent, and 'All is Bright' which I received in the advent calendar and think smells so so lovely! I also bought some Fragrance of the Month scents which were 25% off. I bought some 'Red Raspberry' tea lights and a 'Lemongrass and Ginger' small jar. I think the Red Raspberry smells like Calpol and both will be lovely scents for the spring!

After my best friend bought me a little Lush collection for Christmas, I had to go and buy some more, because the angel shaped one made my skin feel SO soft and I wanted to see if they had any more like it! I ended up going a little overboard (for me, anyway) and bought 2 bubble bars, and 2 bath bombs. I've always wanted to try Dragons Egg so I bought one of those because the scent is just so lovely and I think it would be great if the scent lasted on your skin. I also bought Sakura, which my best friend recommended and I really can't wait to use! I've always wanted The Comforter Bubble Bar and I finally took the plunge (hehe) and bought it! It smells so so sweet and fruity! The product I actually went in for, which was the bubble bear (I think that's what it was called anyway...) they didn't have so I bought Milky Bath instead, as that also had cocoa butter in and I thought it would be similar! I really can't wait to use these and I still have some left from my Christmas presents!

I love my Nyx Suede Lipstick in 'Stone Fox' so I thought I'd get a few more products of theirs! Everyone loves their Jumbo Pencil in Milk for a base so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and get one of those! I've already used it a few times and I have to say it does make my eye shadows pop! I also bought a couple more of their Suede Lipsticks, I got the shade 'Oh, Put It On' which is a very dark purple shade (that tends to bleed out my lip lines quite a bit!) and the shade 'Foul Mouth' which, in the tube looks like a slightly lighter purple than the other colour, but on the lips comes out more of a navy blue (which I have NO issue with, it looks great!).

I was so excited for Sherlock to come back to TV! I've loved it ever since it came out and I couldn't wait for the new series! I have the other 3 series' on DVD in a little boxset but I didn't have the DVD of 'The Abominable Bride' so with it being on offer in HMV I thought I'd snatch it up!

I also bought a new Penguin Classics cloth covered book from Waterstones because I think they are absolutely beautiful and I love reading! I bought Frankenstein with a voucher from my aunty and I think I'm stocked up for books for the rest of the year!

So that was everything I picked up on my little shopping spree! I'm really happy with everything I've bought and I always get really excited to try new things out! Have you picked any bargains up in the sale?

Until next time...
