No7 nail varnishes in Devil's Delight and Blackberry: Boots

My mum has surprised me in the last two days by purchasing the above handmade crochet number from a local charity shop and a really flattering batwing sleeve floral top. I may have been a bit of a moaner in recent weeks due to not being able to buy anything with my lack of funds, and I think she felt a little sorry for me. Bless her!

Despite this, I have managed to get the odd thing in the past couple of weeks - for purely essential reasons of course - and I thought I'd show you them. The slippers I got after work today because I've been looking for the perfect pair and I've finally found them. Here's to being toasty warm! I bought the lush playsuit for New Year's Eve because it was the only thing I could actually find - I. Hate. Sales. - but I really quite love it. And the fantastic feline tee happened to be near it in the petite section and I just couldn't say no. As a worker of Boots, I know how to treat myself cheaply - these lovely nail varnishes were purchased with my No7 vouchers. Add in the discount and I think I paid 42p for these babies. In fact, I know I paid 42p. I do it a lot.

Found yourself any fabulous bargains as of late?
