BARGAIN ALERT! Soap & Glory cosmetics at Boots

Hi! Just a quick post to let you know about a sneaky deal on at Boots right now which saw me pick up some bargain Soap & Glory cosmetics!
S&G is currently part of Boots' 3 for 2 deal, and if you pick up the Boots Health & Beauty magazine (free to Advantage card holders), there's a voucher in the back for a free 'Cheekmate' cheek stain when you buy two S&G cosmetics products.
Combine this with the 3 for 2 & a random reduction on 'It's About Prime' eyeshadow primer (down from £8 to £5 at the till) and another product (I picked up a 'Smoulder Kohl' eyeliner pencil for £5) and once all those discounts have gone through, you're in for some SUPER CHEAP S&G! The three products I chose came to just £5!
Race you to Boots?

Pleased to Meet You - Newcastle

On Friday I decided to take half a day holiday from work ahead of the launch of new bar, Pleased to Meet You in the High Bridge quarter of Newcastle.

This also coincided with my parents' holiday from work, so they popped up on the train to join in the festivities.

The bar specialises in gin (my fave!) - stocking over 50 different varieties. Heaven! It also holds an impressive selection of craft beers and ales which went down well with my dad and boyfriend.

On top of this, because it was opening night, there was a complimentary bar for two hours, meaning I was suitably drunk by the time I got home.

Here are some photos - I really enjoyed it, the bar looked lovely and I'll definitely be popping back again to work my way through that gin list!

Gin & lemonade - my absolute fave!

So busy! Perfectly captured the champagne girl though, AKA my new best friend.
My mum, me & my sister
My dad & my other half with their very black beers.
Two of my favourite words: free champagne.
Beautiful light fittings & I love the print on the French doors (sorry random punter I managed to catch in this photo!)
Printed on the frosted glass of the toilet doors! I love a nice loo! (Random fact - the sinks in the toilet were carefully perched on top of bikes which were used in the movie 'War Horse')

Me & Andrew
My friend Lisa came! Here's Lisa with my sister & me (bit drunk)
Drunk enough to take a selfie in public & not care.
