    Went for a swim today, so managed to sue up a bottle of Tesco Pink body spray - WNBA as I've had it for years, and hardly use body sprays.

    I've also used up a sachet of Garnier BB Cream. Not sure if I will buy it again - I think it made me look a little orange!
  • Ops went to the 99p didnt intend to get any toiletries but spotted the Right Guard xtremes in there so got an invisible and the dry...I did need deodrant! I also got Timotei vivid colour shampoo and conditioner as almost on my last one again and the stock was low in the store so didnt want to risk them running out just when I need it.:money:
    Debt free and busy treating myself:)

    No more toiletries/make up until I've used what I've got stashed since Jan 2011, graduated October 2012. Restocked Dec 13..damn those sales

    I'm back in for this month, although :o have 3 INs due to the No 7 glitch. I have 2 x tinted moisturiser and a night cream, only cost £1.25 for the 3 :rotfl:and used TCB vouchers so free :T.
    Have others to use first though.
    Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
    Go as far as you can see, and when you get there you'll see further.
    Take time but don't waste time

    I'm back. It will be a slow month as nearly everything open is a huge bottle.

    Quick question. I'm going to Spain after new years. I know a lot of people from the UK head out there for long periods of time. Are you able to buy UK magazine there? Or do I have to load up the Kindle and stash magazines in my suitcase?

    My first UU for July !

    L'Occitane - Shea Foot Cream
    This was only a 10ml(?) size and it's the first time that I've tried this and I really love it so WBA - but only once my stash is under control...

    UU:

    1. Dove Go Fresh body wash pomegranate and lemon verbena 250ml - WMBA, nice scent though didn't last, and great price when on Boots glitch!

    wondercollie - you can usually track down most UK magazines and newspapers in Spain, however they tend to be at very inflated prices! If you check the front of the magazines you're planning to buy, the Euro price should be printed next to the £ - IIRC newsagents don't always stick to this, but it will hopefully give you a guide as to whether you should take your Kindle fully loaded instead. Personally I would always stock up at the airport on magazines, then just buy there as a last resort :)

    I have been waiting for July - so thanks to Pickles.
    I would love to join. I find everyone's lists and W/WNBAs very interesting. I need to get to grips with all the bottles and tubes etc in drawers, under shelves etc.
    I will do a stock-take and post later!

    I tend to buy the handbag size mags and get those with free goodies in as well and save them for hols,getting rid of all the junk paper inside first.the hotel we visit in Tenerfie has a mag/book swop so change mine that way,also by taking mags I then leave I have space for bringing any holiday buys home:)
