Huge Boots Haul


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

You know when you feel like you haven't had a good splurge in Boots for a while (if splurging in Boots is your thing of course), annnndddd your Husband says he'll look after the baby, annnndd your best friend is in town? Yes? Well that happened. And then I made a video about it.



I must admit to every now and then picking up the odd thing from Boots. It's no big deal. However, about twice a year, Zoe and I go to the largest Boots we can find and just let our little magpie eyes take us to whatever stand they choose and we fill our baskets with childlike glee. It's fantastic!! We're like kids in a candy shop and then we come home and spill the bags open and riffle through all our loot. We figure that since we don't spend our pennies doing normal best friend things (nights out, weekeneds away etc), that this is our 'thing'.

If you would like to see what I bought during my spree, you can watch the video above, or if you have trouble viewing that (I hope you don't though!), then you can click HERE to be taken to my YouTube Channel. If you are not already subscribed to it, please do come and join our friendly community, we're a nice bunch and as always, it's free. 

What is the absolute best thing you have ever bought from Boots?




Toodlepip!

  29. You can't beat a big splurge in boots! My brother works there so I get a little bit of discount too, not a good thing really as I use it as an excuse for buying everything I want/need haha. Not good for the pennies x

  32. This was one of your most funny videos I've seen, you are literally SO funny, I laughed out loud at least 5 times!

  33. I'm so bad for this too! I go to uni in Southampton and there's a fairly big Boots here with a brand new makeup section and oh lordie when I get into that shop... my boyfriend literally leaves me to it for about 2 hours and I just touch and smell and swatch everything and spend about 15 minutes just inhaling all of the Soap&Glory products. I just love it so much. (and I spend so much, too). It's a guilty pleasure we can all share in! And it's even more dangerous when you and Zoe upload your videos because then I notice new things and I'm all "helloooo... this needs checking out" and I add it to my "Next Boots Trip" list... Oh dear...

  34. Oh my gosh those body washes. My boyfriend had the lemon one, and I was showering at his and it smelt so good I tried to eat some and then had to come out of the shower, naked and alone frothing at the mouth and admit to my boyfriend that I, a twenty one year old woman, tried to eat his soap.

    What is life!
    But it smelt so yummy!

  35. Enjoying your mental breakdown!! I work at boots so I am surrounded by temptation all day. By the way, No 7 have a new mascara out which is genuinely good, and get a liquid eyeliner free with it atm. Also not sure about all stores, but in mine there's a glitch in the tills right now which means theyre going for 8.65 instead of 12 something. Also a new No 7 brush out, like the crappy one you had but i assume its better, its also battery operated like a giant electric toothbrush! Normally 25 but currently 15, and another glitch in the tills means you can get 3 for 20. Some insider tips for you there!
