Payday treats, the Christmas pay edition!

As I do every month, January's payday saw me take off into town with a couple of girlfriends to blow some hard earned cash! Although a good 90% of it has to go in my summer away fund, I just had to treat myself to some bits for my Uni's Law Ball, what better excuse?

Soap and Glory 'Breakfast Scrub', 'Righteous Butter' and 'Scrub Your Nose In It' S&G was 3 for 2 in Boots, so this gave me the perfect opportunity to try out some of their much raved about range! I needed a good scrub for patch free tan for the Ball and I have heard so much about this one. I just used it in the shower and it's an absolute dream, smells good enough to eat! The righteous butter is to accompany the scrub and is so rich and my skin feels so soft after using both of these together. I also needed a good face scrub and I had heard Charli rave about it, I'm too scared to use this before the Ball just in case I break out though.
Touch of Silver shampoo I used a box dye on my hair again last week and the roots just aren't looking the part. I used to use this last year but my hair turned into grey fluff because I used it far too much, this time I know moderation is key!
Xen Tan facial tanner I have used and adored Xen Tan for quite some time so when I saw a local pharmacy stocking this I had to pick it up and give it a go, using body tan on my face is just a disaster.
Bronz Express tan I felt I needed something more luxurious for the Ball than my usual St.Moriz as I couldn't get a spray tan appointment, I hope it gives a golden glow rather than the slightly muddy colour StMoriz gives sometimes.
MAC 'Creme Cup' lipstick and 'Boy Bait' gloss In recent pictures of nights out I have been wearing dark lips which with my very smokey eyes sometimes looks a little too much. I didn't photograph these as it's now the evening and the lighting isn't great but I will do a full post on these as I am in love. The lipstick is a pretty nude pink and the gloss is a shimmering peach nude.
Yankee Candle 'Cherry Blossom' I am obsessed with Yankee Candles and often pick them up when they're on offer, this was down to just €16 and I love how it's a floral scent rather than the food-y cents I always go for.
Perfect 10 false nails These are also for the ball, my dress is black so instead of going for some kind of mad mix of pink glitter and whatnot I decided to grab a pack of these. I just hope they don't all fall off on me but I will keep glue on me to keep them attached all night long!

Have you ever tried any of these?

  3. grab a bottle of http://www.boots.com/en/Kiss-Professional-Nail-Glue-BK135-_1037728/ mine last upto 5days using it and im a science student so get alsorts of chemicals on my hands. Its also good if you crack one of your own nails a drop of that on the top hold the nail together/down with tweezers for 30seconds paint over and it stops the nail splitting further.
