I've been shopping! :)

Hi beautiful followers!

I did a spot of shopping today, in that too cold weather! **shivers**
I mainly walked round town like a penguin due to being scared of slipping on the ice haha.

I've finally started my Christmas shopping but this won't be completed until last minute knowing me! I got a few presents today but i can't discuss them on here sadly, just in case one of my nosy friends reads this and finds out what i got them!

However, i will be telling you what i got for myself, so here we go!

3 pairs of Eylure False lashes! (There currently on offer 3 for 2 mix & match at Boots!)

I got a pair of 147's

a pair of 107's

and a pair of 120's

I love love loveeee Eylure lashes!
Probably my favourite false lashes i've used and they only cost around £5 a pair.

My recent mascara is soon to run out so i purchased:

L'oreal Volume Million Lashes in extra black (£11.29)

I've yet to try this, but i've heard a lot of positive things so i'm hoping it will be good!

L'oreal had a 3 for 2 offer on so my mum treated herself to a mascara for herself she got the L'oreal Double Extension mascara the one with serum i think? (£11.29)

I've heard the Double Extension mascaras are really good?!

So.. my freebie product i chose was;

L'oreal Super Liner in black (£6.19)

This is another new product to me, but i did play with the tester in Boot's and i really like it so far, it has a perfect size tip, the colour is nicely bold and it seems to have good staying power so far!

I got a tube of Strawberry Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm, again a product i haven't tried before, i usually use Nivea lip balms or just plain old vaseline on my lips!
With weather like this our powts need a lot of TLC!

I then got another bottle of St Moriz Instant self tanning mousse (from b&m), this is a repurchase i absolutely this fake tan! It's only £3 aswell! It's amazing!!

I also got the St Moriz Instant self tanning mist, which i haven't tried before but i thought i'd give it a go, can't really complain if i don't like it because it's the same price as the mousse.

I had to get a new Self Tanning Mitt as well because the one i have is looking too dirty, just got a Soltan Beautiful bronze one from Boot's.

I got a can of Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo, never had the tropical one before just the Blush one? I think it's called Blush? Anyway, it was my saviour over the Summer!
It's great if you haven't got time to wash your hair (gross i know) or you tend to get greasy roots quite quickly after you've washed your hair or.. just to help give volume at the roots or just to have nice smelling hair! ha. This smells like coconuts it's yummy!

Other little things i got were;
*Dove Go Fresh Deodorant in scent Grapefruit & Lemongrass (love this smell)
*Dove Go Fresh Cucumber & green tea scent roll on
*Look Magazine
*More Magazine
*THIS cute hot water bottle! Love polka dots :)
*A bottle of Vitamin Water the defence one, raspberry-apple.
*2 slices of Vanilla Cheesecake (which i'm surprised i haven't scoffed yet! ha)
*2 Scratch Cards (I'm addicted to buying these ha! and no i didn't win)

So there you go!
That's what i bought today.

Bought anything lately?

Leave me love. xx

Glamorous Freebie

Yes lovelies!

Glamour magazine are giving away another great freebie when you buy their Decembers issue!

If you remember a few months back they had an amazing Benefit giveaway, this month they have a nice lil selection of 4 different shades of Nails Inc, Nail Polish worth £11!

The magazine is only £2! So it's a bonus! Magazine + Nails Inc Polish = WINNER!

I've managed to get my hands on the shade 'Jermyn Street' it's a lovely greige colour (a combination of soft grey and delicate beige), very similar to Barry M's Nail Paint in 'mushroom'.

Halloween & Bonfire night

Bit of a belated post but i wanted to do it anyway.

Halloween, I didn't get gored up, shocking i know as a lot of people were saying "I bet your gonna take advantage of those make up skills"... ha! No i was lazy and just bought some fancy dress. The inspiration for my outfit was to do with my latest obsession which is all things bear, me also having blonde hair was a bonus.. so... i thought it was a perfect time to go as Goldilocks! :)

Me & a Cookie Monster

What did you dress up as? and what did you get up to?

Bonfire night, i had a lovely evening with some friends i hadn't seen in a while, we went to a display in a local park, were we drank mulled wine nice & warm from a flask.

Me, wrapped up with my bear hat (aka Rafa Bear) and a cup of mulled wine.

Pretty fireworks

Hope you a nice Bonfire Night!

Mini Haul

Bought a few things the other day, will be testing these out..

Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Black.

I was in need of a new mascara and i like to try a different one everytime, hopefully this will be a good'un?

L'oreal True Match Powder

My Revlon powder was almost running out, until it got destroyed in my bag, so a new one was needed, seen as that i use the True Match liquid foundation i thought i'd give this a try. I got shade W3 Golden Beige.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer

This is a repurchase, i think it's a fantastic concealer for the price around £3?
I use shade Light. I apply this onto dark circles and blemishes.

Have you tried any of these products? If so, what do you think?
