Whilst applying for jobs I have been very well behaved in terms of spending money both when out and on the internet. But, here are the few slip ups I have made, and I most probably will  try and justify why I have bought them.

The first purchase/s were from a Body Shop party I went to about a month ago. My mum has always said to me that the sooner you start the wrinkle cream the longer you will keep wrinkles at bay, at the age of 24 this scared me a tad. I was getting a bit paranoid that I was getting lines from squinting in the sun and my mum told me a cream with Vitamin E would be perfect as it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So, I opted for the Vitamin E Moisture Serum and the Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream.

I have only been using them for a couple of days but I can already see/feel a tremendous difference in my skin. It feels soft all the time and is no longer dry in places. It is definitely the best moisturising routine I have used. I am also loving the illuminating effect of the moisture cream.

My second purchase was also a few weeks ago. I found this jewellery seller 'Guns and Cupcakes' online and fell in love with this sideways cross necklace, so sneakily hit 'buy now' *slaps wrist*. I have always loved the necklace Sara wears, but do love this slightly different take on it.

How beautiful is the packaging!! That would of sold me on its own! You can also buy their jewellery on eBay.

Now on to my last purchase. For ages I have been coveting some good make up brushes. After watching a lot of YouTubers and reading a lot of blogs I had it in my head that I needed Sigma brushes, but then I noticed recently there has been a lot of talk about the Real Technique brushes. I came across the brushes from Samantha Chapman who is part of Pixiwoo on I noticed that you could pay by PayPal and after selling some clothes I had some money sitting in my account, which could go towards some good quality brushes :) (see, justifying).I decided to go for the Core Collection, which contains a Contour Brush, Foundation Brush, Buffing Brush, Detailing Brush and a pouch that also doubles as a stand.

The brushes arrived super quick, and I am sooooo happy with them. They are so soft and my make up applies so much better than with my old cheapy brushes. At a bargain of £18.99 for 4 brushes and the pouch/stand, you DEFINITELY can't go wrong.

Those are my 'treats' for the past 5/6 weeks, I think I have done pretty well.
