I am totally feeling the penny pinch that January brings and pair that up with a need for some pampering it isn't looking positive....that's where Boots Advantage Card points save the day!
From my savvy Thresh hold Spend accumulations to my couple of times a week Meal Deal buys, my points can't help but rack up throughout the year and I always want to save them up and have a good old treat a couple of times a year, I mainly splurge my points on holiday toiletries in summer and after Christmas pick me ups in winter.
This January I had over £20 worth of points to spend in store...exciting times...the problem is that I'm known for my indecisiveness (whoa big word for a Monday with a hangover), in fact as my mate Kim says (and she's indecisive) I'm 87% more indecisive than her!
So after approx 7.5 visits to Boots in my lunch hour perusing the various treats I come to the conclusion I don't need make up, I don't need bath products, I don't need perfume, I don't need boring deodorant, eye make up remover etc (not that I wanna spend my points on them boring items anyway) but I DO NEED SKINCARE!!! please note NEED not WANT.
So after a further 3 visits to boots and with varying items going in to and back out of my basket...yes a real life blue plastic boots basket... and my Elemis Therapist past giving me a guilt trip over converting to the dark side and not buying Elemis and buying drugstore skincare, I see the gem that is Dr Nick Lowe Anti Age Starter Kit, I review the contents, (cleanser, day cream, night cream and a dermabrasion peel...Squeal!) and place in my basket and know that this is going to be good...(Full on review coming soon).
I then get an image in my head of a nice wavy mane and begin to search for a curl constructor (my hair does not want to hold a curl I'm sure), and I find Charles Worthington Beautiful Curl Constructor specifically stating for creating curls, again this goes in the basket safe and sound, then I notice Toni & Guy Sea Salt Spray for texturised waves...oh yes that sounds right up my street..so I skip along to the till and pay with my points and walk away a smirle (smirk/smile) on my face and I cant wait to try out these and get the reviews up soon!
The January Pick me ups...
How do you abuse your advantage card.....when was your last splurge????
