I've just had my first pay cheque as an AST, which means I can afford to treat myself a bit. SO - what would you buy if you had about £100 to spend on yourself?

Things I like -
- stuff from Origins
- silk tops or skirts
- lovely bubble bath
- stationery
- mac eyeshadows
- M&S Limited Collection

Things 'm not excited by -
- shoes
- bags

Please help - am going shopping tomorrow and I want to buy things for ME, not for the dds as usually do.

Size 12, dark hair, pale skin, brown eyes, v short, if that helps!

Just go to Mac counter and play for ages envy

When I was pg with DS1 I bought so much Mac stuff, as I was massive, earning my own money and wanted nice stuff. Love Mac.

I think I'd buy a mixture of something to use, and something that will last. Maybe a visit to Paperchase, and some clothes?

origins and mac
so space NK and selfridges

JackieNo Sat 27-Sep-08 21:53:43

Monsoon bargain?

Congrtaulations on the AST status.

I went to Debenhams last week and they had some great stuff particularly in the Betty Jackson section.

Yum Yum to Paperchase. It's in Selfridges, near the Krsipy cremes, so might take a detour! Origins upstairs - what's nice at the mo?

And which Mac eyeshadows are people liking right now? I need to replace my Shale, which I wear virtually everyday - what else is as good?And clothes - but what?

Thanks Twinset.

Sorry Jackie - Monsoon stuff doesn't fit me - am too little!

I would also buy a posh notebook either from paperchase or one of those smart girls get organised ones.

And decent shampoo.

janeite Sat 27-Sep-08 22:57:02

Decent shampoo? What IS decent shampoo?! I usually use John Frieda - do you mean more decent than that?

Posh notebook is a very good idea, especially as my lovely purple suede one doesn't have many pages left in it. What's a Smart Girls one?

I use redken, have run out atm and waiting for payday and my hair look crap.

twinsetandpearls Sat 27-Sep-08 23:17:25

can't find a link to the stationary, it is a line of ironic 1950s style stationary. Also do baby books etc/

twinsetandpearls Sat 27-Sep-08 23:23:48

smart women not girls will see if I can find an actual online shop

twinsetandpearls Sat 27-Sep-08 23:29:43

here they are, I am lusting after the post it notes

twinsetandpearls Sat 27-Sep-08 23:33:44

also on amazon with better pictures

twinsetandpearls Sat 27-Sep-08 23:35:01

The prices on amazon are really good I paid almost double that in one of our little local shops.

janeite Sun 28-Sep-08 15:44:40

Thanks - tbh I think I prefer the Paperchase stuff.

I went to town and have come back empty handed apart from a pair of "Midnight" blue tights and this in teal.

So, I'm still looking for inspiration please evrybody!

Origins users - does anybody rate the Mega-mushroom stuff?

Does anybody use Urban Decay eyeshadows?

janeite Sun 28-Sep-08 15:47:36

Everybody - not evrybody.
