Sparkles & Stretchmarks: A UK Parenting & Pregnancy Blog: Haul

Tuesday, 12 June 2012


I bought a few little items yesterday and I thought I'd share them with you guys :)

I had a No 7 £5.00 off voucher to use so I decided to treat myself to their limited edition Glitter Top Coat - usually £8.00, so just £3.00 with my voucher!
 Once I purchased it I was given another voucher, so I spent it! I bought No 7 Stay Perfect Nail colour in "Milan" which is a gorgeous light purple with silver sparkle running through it. Usually £7.00, just £2.00 with my voucher! :)

I needed a base coat and top coat, but as I've only just gotten into nails and I'm poor at the moment I didn't want to spend too much - so I bought Collection 2000's 2-in-1 base coat and 2-in-1 Top Coat. £1.99 each from Boots
I bought this really cute little bag from New Look for £9.99!
I had a 25% off voucher so I got it for £7.49 :)
It doesn't photograph well but in reality it actually looks like a little rosebud, its so cute!

I'm going out this Saturday and I really wanted a nice outfit, so I bought this from New Look!

Its a cream top with lots of silver sparkle detail around the neckline - £19.99 (£14.99 with my discount) and a pair of black shorts for £17.99 (£13.49 with my discount). I'll wear them with black opaque tights and my Moda In Pelle diamante heels :)

I also bought this very cute little skirt to wear over leggings - £14.99 from New Look (£11.24 with my discount!)

And I treated myself to these heels, which I've wanted for ages but have never been able to find in my size!

They were a bargain at £19.99 (£14.99 with my discount!)
I LOVE them and they go PERFECTLY with the pink in the skirt pictured above! :)
While we were out shopping, my boyfriend noticed this Bazaar magazine with a free full sized bottle of Leighton Denny nail varnish worth £11 and picked it up for me! :) Yay!

The magazine is £4.20 so this is a pretty good freebie, saving £6.80 :)

The colour I got was Coral Reef, which is a lovely vibrant coral! There are 2 other shades being given away - one is an orange shade and the other is a tan/brown shade.


  1. I've got that NO7 Milan Polish, it's so pretty. Love, love love the pink shoes, so girly!

    Thanks for the heads up about more free magazine polish! I think (ok I know) I'll have to go grab them x :-)

    1. Ooh cool, good taste! ;)

      hehe they are aren't they?! They're such a nice shade of pink! :)

      Ha! No problem, thought you'd like that freebie! :) xxx

  2. Lovely haul, the skirt is really cute. I saw this in New Look and debated getting it but went for the aztec print one :)


    1. Thanks! :) Oh I haven't seen the aztec print one? I've got the same style skirt in white with black polka dots and its soooo comfortable!! :)


  3. Great haul! Some serious shopping going on there :) I have a No 7 £5 voucher so I think I'll pick up that topcoat myself! x Found you through the WWBH x
