Recent Purchases

Friday, 13 August 2010

Since I came home from uni, I've managed to buy a rather ridiculous amount of things. I haven't bought much makeup recently, because I've put myself on a make-up buying ban.

AldoKnuckle Ring (Silver) - £6.98 [BOGOF]
Knuckle Ring (Gold) - £6.98 [BOGOF]

Gogo Philip Bangle (Gold) - £4.50
Gogo Philip Bangle (Pewter) - £3.50

Marc by Marc Jacobs'I Love You' Necklace - £3
Keyring - £3
Wishbone Necklace - £5
Are you as amazed at the prices of these items as I was? Last year, when my friend, Abi, and I chanced upon this store, we were amazed and thought either everything in there was fake (lol) or that it was a pop up store. Needless to say, we stocked up and bought lots! Now, I try to go there as often as I can, because they change the stock quite frequently. If you live in/around London, then I highly highly highly recommend you pay a visit to the Marc by Marc Jacobs store on Mount Street (Mayfair). They have all the range of Marc by Marc Jacobs, plus 'special items' (like the ones I purchased), which are at affordable prices.

Boots/SuperdrugGarnier Youthful Radiance Night Moisturiser - £5.45
Olay Complete Care Daily UV Fluid - £2.79
Garnier Fresh Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover - £3.15 [2 for £4]
Garnier Soft Essentials Complete Cleansing Milk - £3.09 [2 for £4]
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara (Waterproof) - £10.99

Asian Supermarket
Likas Papaya Skin Whitening Herbal Soap - £2.50

I will do proper reviews for all of these products once I've had the opportunity to use them for a longer period of time and experiment with them. If there's anything you specifically want to see a review on, let me know :)

Long post is long, sorry! Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy

  2. marc by marc jacobs on mount street is the best kept fashion secret EVER. xxx

  3. @Dina - Yeah, I did! Thank you, again, for letting me know where the store is! Btw, just thought I'd let you know, if you get it in your eye, it majorly hurts! My eye is currently bloodshot from it :/ I'll make a note of that and do some reviews of the moisturisers when I've used them for a bit longer :)

    @Sarah - I know right! I don't understand how it's such a secret though. I love it there, although some of the sales assistants always give me evils when I go in there!
