Let's start with the February (yes February?!) edition of Glamour magazine. Firstly, no Emma, you are not mad. Magazines have a habit of labelling the magazine for the month ahead of when it is published. When Jo Elvin (editor of UK Glamour) was asked about this recently, her reply was 'we don't really know. No-one really knows, so we don't really talk about it- it's an unwritten rule!
Anyway random un-feverish month labelling aside, I purchased Glamour, went home, got into my onesie (yes, I have a dalmatian print one- it is warm! Deal with it!) and then suddenly thought, 'wasn't Kelly Brook in the last edition?'. I started to flick through and read a few interesting snippets before vaguely hitting something familiar. I then flicked through with a bit more deja-vu until I hit an article I remembered reading in depth. Yes folks, I bought the same magazine just before Christmas! What a numpty!!
Not only did I buy the same magazine before Christmas, but it struck me that I also managed to pick and purchase a magazine from America- not realising until I looked and saw the prices were in $!! (Cosmo USA!) I enjoyed the read though and am now keen to try more american products!!
This wasn't all. I managed to pick up some Oral B brush heads thinking they were £10 when in fact they were £10 off (cue confused incident at the till)! The Batiste Brown dry shampoo was on 3 for 2. I did need some but not quite that much. Obviously the fever took my will-power (*ahem cough*)! Talking of which I had 2 £5 No. 7 vouchers so I was going to pick up two items with £5 off until I saw there was another 3 for 2 on. This made my brain hurt. 2 for 3 minus £5 or two items with £10 off which would need to be bought separately otherwise they would be 3 for 2 ARGH!! Ended up picking up 2 items from the new Floral Brights collection, and some wipes..... then the assistant pointing out I could use the other £5 off to get some more wipes in a separate transaction. This meant I became THAT person, you know, the one who queues up and then leaves the cashier with their things while the customer goes to pick up "one more thing". This always happens when the queue grows 10 fold!!
Of course, all humiliation and confusion was worth it for new lipstick and highlighter. No. 7 Floral Brights Limited Edition collection lipstick in Blossoming Pink (above) and highlighter (below). Post shortly when my lips are recovered from a weeks worth of blowing my nose with dry, sore tissues!
Have you ever gone shopping while ill? What is the biggest shopping mistake you have made? Have you ever bought something, forgetting that you already have it? Have you checked out the Floral Brights range?
