It's that time of the month again when my bank balance is feeling a little more healthy after being paid, and what do I do come every payday... Pop into Boots of course. Although having said that I bought everything you see in this post today last week so maybe my bank is not as healthy as it was, especially as I've just booked my holiday, which I can't wait for. On most my most  recent trips to Boots I've just picked up the essentials which haven't really been worthy of a haul post, but as Boots had the 3 for 2 offers on pretty much everything I picked up some new beauty bits and thought I'd share them with you all. 

First of all when did Boots start stocking Sleek? I've always been a huge fan of Sleek products, especially their blushes but I'm not really a fan of Superdrug so I never really pick up anything from the brand. I spotted the little Sleek section in my Boots and actually did a little jump for joy and it was inevitable that some of the products were going to make its way into my basket. Around this time last year I picked up the Sleek Blush by 3 Lace palette which is the most beautiful and perfect blush palette for spring. Sadly I dropped mine and the cracked blush went everywhere so I just had to pick up a new one. If you would like to see the full review of that palette and swatches you can find that post here.

Another Sleek purchase is one that has been so hyped about in the beauty blogging world and that is the Contouring and Blush palette. Now I'm going to hold my hands up high here and say I love a good contour and recently I've become a little bit obsessed with trying out new products that will give me those Kim K cheek bones. I bought the palette in the shade medium which works perfectly for my skin this time of year. What I really love about this palette is that it has three beautiful shades that really work amazingly at contouring and highlighting your face. The contour shade is this deep matte bronzer that blends beautifully and really adds definition and depth to your cheeks. The highlight compliments the bronzer perfectly and isn't too shimmery either which I love. Expect to see this palette in a full review soon.

A product that I had really been wanting to trying and another one which has been massively hyped up on beauty blogs are the Invisibobble's, I spotted them in Boots and just had to pick up a pack. I went for the black ones as I though they would work perfectly in my dark hair. What really appeals to me about these funny looking hair bobbles is that they are supposed to leave your hair kink free. My hair is very fine so whenever I pop a hair bobble in I'm always left with a dodgy kink, especially if my hair has been left in a pony tail over night. I've been wearing this in my hair around my wrist everyday since picking the Invisibobbles up and I can see what all the hype is about, they're amazing. You get three in one pack and they're so weightless and comfortable in your hair and most importantly don't leave behind any nasty kinks, amazing!

Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray and Body Booster Mousse

The next two items to be popped into my Boots basket were repurchases. I am in love with Charles Worthington haircare products, especially the Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray and Body Booster Mousse. Like I said earlier my hair is really thin and really lacks volume and bounce, so I'm forever using products that will help uplift it at the roots and enhance the thickness of my hair. These two products work perfectly in my hair and have become essentials in my morning hair routine, I'd highly recommend them. Also how pretty is it pink vibrant packaging?

So there you have it, my mini Boots Haul. I would love to know what makeup and haircare bits you've been picking up recently and what your thoughts are on the bits I picked up. Are they favourites of yours?

Lots of Love
