More from Boots...Star Gift of the Week and Other Findings!

Hey girlies :)

IT'S FRIIIDAAAY!! The weekend is here, no work for 2 days, YAY!

So this morning I received an email from Boots, and had COMPLETELY forgotten it was time for the new Star Gift of the Week! Silly me opened the email and wished I hadn't (though I would have seen the gift anyway!).

Well...I can announce to you that the new SGotW is...

Ted Baker Make it Big Vanity Case
£19 from £40 (Better Than Half Price!)

I was looking at this during the Advantage Card Event on Wednesday and told my sister I really liked it, particularly for the case! Those who have been following my blog may have discovered that I am a sucker for fancy packaging!!
During the event I bought 3 Ted Baker minis, which are in this case, BUT IN BIG SIZES!!
Oh wants!!

I went in to Boots at lunch and as soon as I walked in I was greeted by about 20 cases to my left, and a table with about another 20 on and under (and some Celebrations!) to my right!
I must have spent about 10 minutes standing, looking at the case before deciding to 'leave for now'.
I had a quick nose around and spotted Harajuku Lovers perfumes are on offer (see lower down this post), sprayed one (which I can't remember) but it smelt lovely! I can still smell it now!
Anyway, I went to the till, avoiding all these obstacles on my way to pay for lunch and as I got to the till I was face-to-face with another bunch of the cases, damn you Boots!! I ALMOST said to the girl on the till 'I'll have one of these too, please!' but managed to stop myself!

Now, enough rambling, on to the case itself...

Inside the gorgeous case are the following products:
(information from Boots website)
  • Butterfly Wings Body Wash - 250ml - a rejuvenating body wash to leave your skin smoothe and supple

    and now for the rest...

    30ml Was £20 Now £10
    Harajuku Lovers Wicked & Sunshine Cuties Collections

    The next thing I discovered, well my sister discovered...was in the Boots Health & Beauty magazine that I picked up on my lunch break today. I can't find photos of these and didn't see them in store, but keep your eyes open girls ;-)

    Dove/Nails Inc Offer
    Spend £6 on Dove Hand & Body Lotions or Deodorants and get 2 free Nails Inc nail varnishes (4ml, worth £10 collectively).
    The nail varnishes are Limited Edition shades Mulled Wine and Pink Fizz.
    Offer ends 27th December.

    Just to add, I am not sponsored by Boots to say any of this...I just LOVE that shop! Though it is bad for the little money I have left after bills every month!

    Anyone else have a Boots obsession??

    Planning on buying the Ted Baker Vanity Case?

    1. My bank balance really isnt liking boots at the moment! haha, they've got some really really great deals.

    2. Same!!. They have, it's such a pain haha :) I am mainly waiting on that BIG Soap & Glory box to be on the SGotW offer...PRAYING it isn't for at least another few weeks til I get paid again though!


    3. I've always wanted to try Harajuku! :) xx

    4. Wow, that Ted Baker set looks so cool. I'm gonna ask for it for Christmas! xx

    5. The set looks good, but I'm hoping the big soap and glory or a James Brown set comes half price soon! :D
      Lucy xx

    6. @Marta - They all seem to be really nice! I only have the Mermaid one so far 'G of The Sea', which smells amazing! and I am hoping to get the little Christmas 'Jingle G' one for Christmas :)

      @Penny - It is, I saw loads of them again today whilst out shopping! It would make a great present :)

      @Lucy - I NEED the S&G box this year! If I miss it again I will cry, haha :)


    7. I have a MAHOOSIVE boots obsession - I have to walk through it to get to work so i always end up spending money I don't have on stuff I don't need - especially when they have a cracking deal on something. I went mental when they had their 3 for 2 on hair and beauty products. I also noticed that brother spears perfume is on offer - a massive bottle for £15 I snapped one of those up! :)
      It's reassuring to know it isn't just me with the boots obsession... :p x

    8. Britney spears* silly auto correct :)

    9. Haha, glad to hear I am not the only one!! Oh God, that must be a nightmare! If I had to walk through Boots to get to work I would literally have NO money, ever! I'm a sucker for good deals too. Really?? Which Britney perfume is it that is on offer and is that offer on now?? I have only smelt Radiance and Cosmic Radiance. Lol at auto correct, Brother Spears!
      :) xx
