Wow, it feels like forever since I last did a haul! We've been trying to save a lot of money recently, so at the moment we're being really strict when it comes to spending. Don't get me wrong, it's taking a lot of willpower not to go browsing across the Internet and plonk stuff in my shopping basket (I am a girl after all), but the sooner we can scrape some money together, the better. Weddings aren't cheap!

Another thing that's been cut for me on a daily basis is the buses to and from work. I know prices are different from area to area, but around my hometown where I live and work, the rough price to work and back is £5 a day. That's £25 a week, £100 a month and £1200 a year! And all for a journey that only takes a rough 10-15 minutes max on a bus or by car. What a rip off! So now I've opted for walking down the canal, which not only gives me some exercise but also saves money - something we've already started to notice. Awesome!

Ever since this range was released by L'Oreal, I've constantly seen it splashed here and there within the blogging community. I've read countless reviews on how good the 'Extraordinary Clay' products are, and I must admit that did sway me a bit what it came to picking up some more hair products!

With three products in the range, it seems L'Oreal have designed the perfect products to combat two hair care problems in one go. Targeting both oily roots and dry ends, this new range contains three refined clays to 'cleanse and purify' hair. That is something my hair definitely needs on a regular basis as having blonde hair can sometimes be a nightmare to take care of and maintain.

One of the most intriguing products of the range has to be the 'Pre-Shampoo Clay Masque'. Don't get me wrong I've used hair masks before, but they were normally after shampooing and at the conditioning stage, not before even getting in the shower. It's marketed as a 'spa like experience', so I'm seriously excited to see how it works!

The entire range is currently on offer in Boots at 3 for £10, which in my eyes is a real bargain. I might have to stock up whilst I can, I can sense that I'm going to get on well with them - they may even replace the Herbal Essences 'Hello Hydration' range as my go to hair products!

I must admit, I'm a bit of a sucker for a good Soap & Glory product. Usually though it's normally their skincare products I love - currently I'm pretty obsessed with their body mists. Boy oh boy do they smell good. And from their makeup products I have about four or five different shades of their 'Sexy Motherpucker' lipgloss - but apart from that, I haven't really used much of their makeup range. But thankfully that's all about to change!

With four new makeup sticks to add to their product range, Soap & Glory have definitely caught my eye and got me intrigued. There are four new concealer sticks, each aimed at a different problem area; redness and blemishes, dark circles, tired skin and even a blurring concealer to give skin a softer experience.

As I've mentioned in the past, I often suffer quite badly with dry skin. But whilst that's under control (for now anyway) I now have another skincare problem to try and fix. Rosacea is a common skincare problem, but for those that suffer from it it can have a significant impact on their confidence. I know it does for me anyway.

On a good day it won't be too bad - I'll only have a slight flush and some small red patches, and I can usually get away with just covering it with foundation. On the bad days though (which seem to be a lot more frequent at the moment) it looks terrible and really knocks my confidence. On those days, I'll crack out my No7 'Colour Balancing Primer' and pretty much have to use the cream across my entire face.

That's where the Soap & Glory Kick Ass 'All Is Calm' concealer comes in. Slightly different to the No7 primer, the Soap & Glory version works better as an on the go redness controller. Thicker in consistency, 'All Is Calm' works better to control patches of red skin rather than being used as an all over product. Plus it's easier to slip in my bag to use all throughout the day whenever I need touch ups!

The second Kick Ass product I went for is the 'Super-Blur' Imperfections Eraser because lets face it - we all want that perfect, flawless dewy look don't we?! I'm hoping this will be as good as the 'Instablur' primer from The Body Shop which I absolutely love under my foundation. 'Super-Blur' is designed to give you that movie starlet soft skin kind of look, and I can't wait to put it to the test.

Oh nail polishes. You can never have enough, right?! At least that's what I keep telling myself...and Liam. And my Mum and Dad. Anyway, with a new gel look range by Rimmel London, and some new colours to the gel range from No7, it was very hard to resist. So in the end I caved - I am a girl after all, and boy do I love my shopping! Let's get on to my colour choices shall we?

Rimmel London 'Super Gel'

'Grape Sorbet'  - A cute, soft pink colour, this nail polish immediately stood out to me as it is the perfect timeless colour and it could literally be worn throughout the year like any other nude shades. 'Grape Sorbet' has a gorgeous slight gold shimmer to it too, which is only more noticeable when caught in the light. It's a gorgeous effect which makes me love it all the more.

'Urban Purple' - I think this name is slightly misleading, but this is a beautiful deep berry colour that would be perfect throughout the cooler seasons. That's not to say it can't be worn until then though!

'Seduce' - My oh my, what a gorgeous shade of purple. I honestly don't think I own a nail polish quite like this one - the only other dark purple i own has glitter running throughout it. Sometimes I just love sporting a darker nail, and this is going to be the perfect colour for the next time I give myself a good pamper and a good manicure.

No7 'Gel Finish'

'Purple Dreamer' - Like 'Seduce', this colour is another beautiful shade of purple, but is more of a deep lilac colour. Perfect for Spring, 'Purple Dreamer' actually reminds me of when I had my room decorated when I was younger, and I'm actually pretty convinced this is the exact same colour.

'Bluebell' - This is actually the first colour that caught my eye because it is so different and rather unique - I'm pretty sure I don't own any other colour like it. And that's saying something with my collection! It's a lovely pastel baby blue colour, and the perfect shade for Spring.

'Rose Gold' - I'm pretty sure this nail polish needs no explanation but I'm going to put it out there anyway. Rose gold seems to be all the rage at the moment, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't part of that either. If you own any of the rose gold Apple products or have ever seen one then you'll be happy to know that this is pretty much the exact same colour. Awesome!

I think I may have gone a little crazy with shopping, especially when it comes to nail polishes! A small shop for some new shampoo and conditioner soon turned into a bit of a shopping spree...but keep your eyes peeled for some reviews of these products coming up soon!
