Mini celebratory haul :D

So, on Monday I received the phone call that I'd been dreaming of. I was offered a job as a biomedical scientist at my local hospital! My 3 years of uni have paid off, & in such a short amount of time (I only graduated in July!). I am so so chuffed :D

Until this job offering I was just working in a bar on Saturday nights, so I was having to be really tight with money. However, after the phone call I went straight to my local shopping centre, Merry Hill, & treated myself. I didn't really buy anything amazing, but they were all things I've wanted for a while, but had held back. After my little spree I then headed towards Wetherspoons &, once more, treated myself to a few bevvies!



Some of you may have seen my recent post regarding my massive effort in growing my hair! Since that post I've been using Lee Stafford's hair growth treatment in between shampoo & conditioner. I figured if I was using the hair growth shampoo & conditioner the products would work to their maximum, so I bought exactly that! In Boots Lee Stafford was (& probably still is currently) on 3 for 2. I initially picked up a heat defence spray, but then my boyfriend oh so correctly pointed out that if I'm on a heat ban what's the point. What a babe. So I thought I'd take the chance & try out something different. I went for the sea salt spray, as I've never tried anything like this before :)

Also in Boots I picked up a can of my trusty Batiste! Whilst queueing I walked past the ever so eye-catching Benefit's They're Real mascara. I couldn't resist! I have wanted this mascara since the day it came out. I'm kinda glad I had to wait so long though, because now they have a great deal on. For the same price as previously the mascara now comes with a mini-me!

On my last toiletry stop I went to The Body Shop & knew exactly what I wanted. I picked up the Seaweed skincare range that are targeted for oily/combination skin. The set I bought includes a cleanser, toner, day cream & night cream. I haven't had a skin care routine targeted for my skin type in such a long time, so I really excited to see if these work wonders for me :)

Last but definitely not least I bought some gorrrgeous leopard print ankle boots wedges from River Island. I thought these would be perfect for the Autumn and plus they'd be really versatile for casual and smart wear. I've never owned anything leopard print either :) 

I'll keep you guys up-to-date with the new job, I'm not sure when I start just yet. & I'm so so excited to do my first pay day haul, haha! :D

    I hope I find one that easily when I finish my degree (also Biomed). Did you do a masters or just a BSc ?
    You have now tempted me to try the Lee Stafford range ! Come on student finance !
