There’s no place quite like home Boots. I can often be found perusing the beauty aisles in the early hours of opening (fresh stock + no crowds = bliss), with a brimming basket and swatches all the way up to my elbow. In the mist of deep beauty thoughts the other day (I know – how deep am I?) I concluded that in the past year or so the drugstore has really upped its game. The counters are getting bigger, ranges vaster, formulas improved and annoyingly the prices more expensive – I can’t be the only one who always gets a bit of a shock at the till? Or perhaps it’s just my severe lack of mental arithmetic. So without further ado I’m uploading the contents of my latest basket in full view of YouTube. Enjoy.

    Great haul Anna!!! I really enjoyed being “nosey” over all your goodies! Thanks for sharing with us!! <3

  • Anna

    I love your videos! Your voice is so soothing… I have an exam tomorrow, and as I am a med student, there’s some hardcore memorizing involved, which is incredibly exhausting. I use your blog as a ‘special treat’ when I take a rest, and I feel noticeably refreshed afterwards, so thank you for that! <3

    BTW: What are you wearing on your eyes? The colour's really stunning on you.

    Boots is heavenly, it’s also pretty dangerous; my basket always seems to end up too full and I spend far more than I ever anticipated… But all worth it! I love those BarryM gelly shines too – I think ‘Mango’ is my favourite colour though! Xx

    Boots is the worst place to go for me, I know never when to stop! I just put everything in my basket. Such a big haul! Your pick of products is beautiful, and very summery.
    Lots of Love, Katie. X

    It’s so cool how those three Essie nail polishes came in a set! I never knew they did those, too bad they don’t sell them like that where I live :P

    It’s definitely not just you. I was astounded that mascaras were over $10 at the drugstore, I’m used to paying $7!
