I wish I could buy with my Boots points....

I am being a terrible blogger! In my defense the whole of July has been manic with either guest house work, ad sales work or photography work with a good measure of FUN! thrown in to boot so time has been at a premium.  And I have sort of lost my blogging mojo and as for twitter - I think I might be over it!

Anyhow.   The only time in the day I get a few minutes head space is often when I am doing my make up and this morning whilst I was doing it I began to think again about the £46 on my Boots advantage card that keeps calling me to spend it.  I haven't found anything in Boots that has created a "need" so great that I have lashed out with my card and I keep finding things, thinking they might hit the spot and then discounting them as not worth the points.  I had a moment whilst I did my eye shadow when I wished I had realised how fantastic Urban Decay was, back when it was in Boots.  Then I thought how fab it would be if Laura Mercier was in Boots - and right there I had it - those Boots points would have been long gone if I could have spent them on Laura Mercier in Boots.  Although if I'm honest I'd be saving my points right up until the 2012 Christmas collection came out and praying there would be something like the Luxe Colour portfolio of last year, have goggle imaged it a hundred times!! (When anyone gets wind of what LM is bringing out for 2012 xmas please, please tip me off!)

And I got to wondering, surely I can't be alone with this wish?!  I'm dying to know - what range would you love to see stocked in Boots so that you could save up your points and have a massive splurge?

    1. Hi Sophie, I have a feeling that you can now use your points on the Boots website, so even if the Boots nearest to you doesn't stock YSL you might still be able to buy it on your advantage card on line - I think?! Might be worth a look. x

  2. I wish I had that problem, but unfortunately I use my points far too frequently. Last month I had a visit to Birmingham and went into the large Boots store there and I could have spent my points several times over! They had This Works, Philosophy, Super by Perricone, loads of things I would have liked to try - it was amazing. Wish I lived in a big city instead of a backward little town!

    1. I know what you mean, the local Boots in Huddersfield isn't too bad but the ones in Leeds and at the Trafford Centre are massive and have pretty much everything, apart from Laura Mercier!! I am glad they are as near as they are to me.

  3. I'd like to see more of Stila in the stores. Since Boots took it in, I've found it mainly in Boots online and only at Bluewater Boots. I also have the same problem as you, got points and never know what to buy with them??

    I would love to see NARS at Boots but I don't think the environment would suit that brand so that won't be happening.

    1. Much like you, I've only seen Stila in the bigger branches. I always feel that whatever I buy with points has to be really really worthwhile given what I have had to spend to acrue them!! I can't imagine NARS in Boots either and I guess its the exclusivity that the more coveted brands achieve that makes them so lustworthy for us lot!

  4. My local Boots is terrible! I wish they had Revlon, China Glaze, OPI, Stila, Clinique. All we have is Natural Collection, 17, No.7, Rimmel - the usuals :(

    1. Seriously no Revlon? That is awful I thought Revlon were in pretty much all Boots stores, god poor you. If you are ever after anything specific and dont want to buy on line shout and I'll happily see if I can pick it up for you. x

  10. I rarely comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here "I wish I could buy with my Boots points....".
    And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it appear like a few of these comments appear like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of the complete urls of your communal pages
    like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
