Car Boot Sales Are Back

When last years car boot season came to an end I was longing for next summer to begin. However saying that, I've only just in the past few weeks started going to them again. I'm not sure why I didn't jump to the chance of attending one again, I may be due to the fact my most local one sadly wasn't open throughout the whole of July! But having finally found a date when I'm free to go, I actually managed to potter around and unintentionally find some great bargains. Though you do have to work up some good haggling skills to get the best deal, it's hard to get the hang of it again having not been to a car boot in over a year. 

So I thought, considering I didn't actually have a blog this time last year, it would be a perfect idea to share with you some car boot purchases! 

Barry M Gelly Nail polish | 75p

 Estee Lauder creme lipstick in Crystal Coral | £2 
A lovely finish, more on the orange side for a coral, but still wearable and perfect for everyday. I assume it's limited edition

Small makeup mirror | £1

Mac Zoom Black mascara | 75p 
Sadly when I opened this at home it was dried up, however it can contribute to a new lipstick as this is one 
of the products that mac allows their customers to use on their 'back to mac' deal.

Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in 06 egerie | £3.50 

And no... this isn't real sadly, the packaging looks very realistic but once I opened it I knew straight away. It smells fairly odd, and the finish of it doesn't look the best. But at least I didn't waste £6, as that was the price the lady originally wanted it for!

The flowers featured in this post are actually another one of my purchases, I hope you thought they were real because they're not! They were only 50p per stem, a few larger were £1, but altogether it only came to around £4 for the whole bunch. 

I hope you found this post interesting, as much as I find reading posts concerning car boot sales. I'd also like to apologise for lack of content on my blog, a whole summer without blogging... I know that's pretty bad. I did have time. But I chose not to as I believe a break from even hobbies once in a while is never a bad thing, I also didn't want my blog to become chore which I must complete/post for the sake of it. But I managed to find my way to an alternative car boot sale today, as my usual one wasn't running, therefore another haul is most definitely on its way... Have a lovely week back at school! I know school isn't 'lovely', but after a long break, I find myself remembering the perks school includes.

Have you discovered any good buys this summer?
