Fifi Lapin Boots Haul
Hello my lovelies! It pains me to admit that blogging's taken a bit of a backseat recently; with university leading at the forefront, my little blog's been gathering cobwebs and feeling the impact of my negligence. October had me buried in work as I flew off to Switzerland for a design collaboration project, and with my birthday following the week I returned, I was ready to curl up in a ball and sleep for a million years. It wasn't all bad though as I took my birthday as an opportunity to ransack Boots on their 3 for 2 Christmas gift range! And when I discovered that Boots had launched a Fifi Lapin collection in store, I couldn't help but throw my money at a few cute bits and bobs.
Ya'll know I'm a sucker for stationery, right? So the second I clapped eyes on these adorable accessories I knew they were headed straight for my shopping basket! And even though I have an abundance of notebooks sat at home gathering dust on a desk corner, the promise of starting a new one afresh just gripped me so tightly I couldn't resist. I also purchased a few bunny shaped paper clips (for organisational purposes of course) and a set of sticky notes to assist with scheduling. I also picked up the cutest tote bag as well in lieu of forking out 5p per plastic bag - a worthy investment I'm sure you'll agree!
How perfect are these nail polishes though? They're a pastel lovers dream! Available in a set of four, I just love how they come equipped with the loveliest little charm, each one reminiscent of the Fifi Lapin fashion. Having fallen head over heels for the mint and coffee colours, I can't wait to try out each one, where I think they'll make a prominent staple come springtime.
I think investing in a new lipbalm is an absolute must for the cold winter months ahead in order to combat those dreaded chapped lips. Although what most attracted me to these particular products was of course the absolutely adorable packaging, if the minty tones and pastel pinks didn't have me already sold it was Fifi's fashionable stance on the front. Also, what especially surprised me about these balms was how gorgeously fragranced they were: the pink emitting a lovely strawberry smell and the white a yummy vanilla. Usually, with a lot of drugstore brands their lip balms tend to be quite generic and unscented so I'll be quite happy to be slathering myself in strawberry and vanilla this Christmas!
Have you bought anything in Boots recently?
