selfridge's splurge!

Wednesday, 22 May 2013
At the moment I'm loosing weight due to healthy eating and going to the gym regularly  so i've imposed a new rule to myself; not to buy clothes unless they're the size down from what I normally take. Due to this in the past few months I've only bought around 4 items of clothing, so instead of saving the money i've been spending all my money on makeup instead!
As you'll probably already know I'm an a level student and I finished two of my exams yesterday (the two most important ones). As a treat (and an influence of one of my best friends) I treat myself tonight. I'd been thinking for a while of ordering one of these beauty boxes such as a glossy box or birch box when I seen Caitlin link up the Selfridges Summer Box! 

The box is prices at just £25 but says that it comes to a combined price of over £70, but when Caitlin added it up herself to check (we're frugal students) she found it coming to just under £100. In the box you receive:
- Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer
- Models Own Neon Nail Varnish
- Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray 50ml
- Molton Brown Aqua Shower Gel 100ml
- Caudalie Beauty Elixir 30ml
- St. Tropez Instant Glow Face Lotion 50ml
- Jane Tran Hair Clips
- Erborian BB Cream 12ml
- Lancaster After Sun 40ml
- St. Tropez exclusive in-store offer card 

This kit will be ideal for when I'm on my holidays to Rome this July! Although it's not a beach holiday I will still be making full use of all the products as the weather this is so very hot! I've been wanting to order some products from Bumble and Bumble for a while now as my cousin orders from there a lot and she raves about it so I'm very excited to try this. I'm a fan of St. Tropez products ever since i purchased a kit for my prom but it's so expensive so don't buy it as often as I'd like too.
As well as this summer box I also bought myself Mac's Baking Beauties Pearlmatte Face Powder. I saw this product first on instagram, I'm not going to lie I initially fell in love with it due to the way it looks. By the time I got round to watching/reading reviews on the product (which everyone seems to be reaving about) it had sold out everywhere. I was so worried that it wouldn't be restocked as it's limited edition. When I went online to look at this summer box tonight I seen this pop up in the just arrived section. I can't wait for this to arrive and try it out!
Would you get the summer box for your holiday? Think it's worth the money? Leave me a comment!
