I got paid and it burnt a hole in my pocket. (very long post!)
So daz decided he would put up with shopping with me, very brave! First off, we went to subway and we realised that i am a messy eater, you can't take me anywhere. More of my sandwhich was on the paper than in my mouth or hand. First we went to topshop, because i see lots of you lovelys getting good bargains from there in terms of jewelry. As soon as i walked in, it was herendously busy. (meadowhall at 3 on a saturday, not fun!) so we made it to the stand and i was very dissapointed and walked straight back out, i couldnt even think about looking at the make-up stand because i was so mad! Topshop is next to debenhams, so i thought i would go and look at the MAC stand.
Now i've only ever been to this stand twice before, and both times i've been looked down upon. And the second time my card needed authorising so i couldn't pay for what i wanted to buy, leading to the very made-up make-up guy looking very pleased with himself asif to say 'haha you don't have enough money to shop here'. But i thought i would give it another go, the moment i walked in, a girl who worked there spotted me and stood infront of the stand, and then continued to not look in my direction and just stood infront of the stand so i felt awkward. I also went near the lipsticks, and once again none of the assistants would ask me if i needed anything, so i walked back out again feeling pretty bummed. I don't know if anybody else has this sort of problem, but they really make me feel uncomfortable, not the kind of customer service i'm used too.
So we went in LUSH, and although this is in the 'posher' end of meadowhall, the customer service is great in there. So friendly. So i picked out some bits, 2 repurchases.
I also stocked up on some VO5 shampoo and conditioner because it was only 99p each, and it does the job so i thought why not, and got me some more dry shampoo because i had run out.
If you read my last post, you will know that i wanted the book fifty shades, and it was half price from £7.99 to £3.99, so i went ahead and bought it, and if i enjoy this one, i will buy the other 2. The last thing i bought was the vanilla cupcake candle. I had bought the sampler but didn't want to burn it because i liked the smell so much! This candle was supposed to be £15.99, but i get discount at clintons so i got it for around £9.95, bargain!
Me & darren then went to see Mirror Mirror, i wasn't sure how much i was going to enjoy it, but i was pleasantly surprised, it's very good, although they have changed the names of the dwarfs which seems wrong to me, but there you go. It also has some innapropriate references in it, which had us all laughing, which then lead to all the kids laughing, but im pretty sure the children in there won't have understood them.
So all in all a good day, apart from giving someone £10, let's just hope they needed it more than me, and it wasn't some rich person who already has thousands. I also need your help, I am undecided of wether to buy a MAC pallette pro 15, and the MAC 217 brush and build up my own pallette, or to get the Urban Decay Naked Pallette 2, obviously i am going to be doing a make-up course, so whatever i decide it will become part of my kit, but if someone could tell me what they think would be better for me for now, it would be a MASSIVE help, thanks!
