Just another afternoon shopping

I didn't plan to go out today as it was miserable outside (just wet, cold and gloomy!) but I've got my NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) package prompting me to pay for my registration so I felt like I didn't had any choice but kick my lazy bum. Aaack!

As I've been wanting to take advantage of Lancome gift offer, I've decided to nip in Debenhams and came out with my new goodies ;). After my Debenhams visit, I remembered I was running out of my hair essentials so I nipped in Boots where I ended up getting more stuff than I planned fetch. However, on my way to Boots, I passed by Dixons and popped in to check out their digital cameras as I've been sooo frustrated with trying to take good quality photos and... surprise, surprise! I came out with a brand new Canon Digital Camera... This better be good :P... My son then asked me if he could have a DVD and since he's been running after me in town, I thought, he also deserved a treat ;)... I ended up with 3 CDs for myself :)

So... here are my afternoon loot...!

My brand new Canon Ixus 9701S... Wooo! It's 10.0 Mega Pixels, 5x Optical Zoom and Optical Stabilizer... It cost me £249 plus £69.00 for 5 years insurance. They could've thrown in a case for that price but they didn't and there wasn't any to fit this baby so I have to go somewhere else :( to find one.

As you can see... I'm loving Aerosmith, Kate Nash and Duffy music

Gracie said...

Yes, sis Nic! They really are nice and I've been silly to try all of them on and now my lips are feeling a bit sore ha ha ha! That'll teach me lesson not to get too excited about make up ha ha ha!

My camera looks nice and shiny at the moment but it'll look scruffy soon when I start taking FOTDs ;)

Askmewhats said...

I would never see you as greedy !!! And I honestly see you as a very COOL mom!!!! Hahaha I can imagine if you have a daughter, you'll let your daughter use your mineral make up! hehehe

Gracie said...

The first thing I'd teach my daughter if I had one is how to put make up on. I asked my son if I could practice putting EMU on him as he's got lovely eyes but he screamed at me... 'NOOO!'. Bless him he knows how precious mummy's make up are to her ha ha ha!
