Sephora Haul - Part 1

Hi everyone, I'm back from my holidays.  I just spent 2 weeks in Los Angeles and had a great time.  I saw a few minor celebs, visited Disneyland and Hollywood and more importantly spent an absolute fortune at Sephora, so you will be seeing a few haul posts over the next few weeks (I have to justify my spending somehow).  I will also be doing a giveaway so look out for that.   Here's my Sephora haul - Part 1. I was on holiday with my sister, so I have included some of her stuff as well, since we will be sharing some of the box sets.   I'll start with some of the holiday gift sets that I bought.     Sephora Favorites Super Stars - cost $75 (approx £50) actual value is showing as $280. This set contains: - 0.085 oz Anastasia Clear Brow Gel - 1.7 oz Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray - 0.50 oz Deborah Lippmann Treatment-infused Nail Color in Cleopatra in New York - 0.50 oz Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil - 0.17 oz Nars Blush & Bronzing Powder Duo in Orgasm & L

Quick Update

I just thought I would do a quick update to let you know that I won't be able to post much in October, but bear with me because I will be doing another great giveaway at the start of November. I started this blog in May and I can't believe that I have done 50 posts already.  It's been really enjoyable and I want to thank you for following me and reading my blog :) Take care everyone and see you in November.

Use it or Lose it Challenge October

After the success of Septembers Use it or Lose it Challenge, where I chose 8 products to try to see if I liked them or not (I decided to get rid of 3 and keep 5),  I thought I would pick another set of products to use in October.  For anyone that missed Septembers challenge update the link is here . The products I have decided to use or lose in October are: Vanitas Versace Perfume  4.5ml - I received a trial size in a beauty box ages ago and never got around to using it.  I did a post on my perfumes awhile ago and promised that I would use more of my perfumes. Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds Eye Liner in Smokey Diamond - Another product Ive had ages and not used.  I must admit I have hooded eyelids so I'm not sure eyeliner works for me but I'm going to try a few of my eyeliners in October and see if they are worth keeping.  The other eye liners I will try are: Elf Shimmer Eye Liner Pencil - I cant find a name on the pencil but its a smokey grey colour. Avon Super Sho

Magazine Subscription Freebies

I have seen loads of posts about free gifts when subscribing to various magazines and some of the gifts really make it worthwhile subscribing.  I took advantage of a recent offer to subscribe to Instyle magazine for £8 for 6 issues.  The normal price for the magazine is £3.80, so that's a saving of nearly £15 off the cover price.  The free gift on offer was a Rituals set worth £36.     I have used a couple of Rituals shower gels in the past which I really liked, so I couldn't pass up this great offer.  The set includes:   Happy Buddha Foaming Shower Gel 200ml - Organic Mandarin & Yuzu Touch of Happiness Rich, Nourishing body cream 200ml - Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood Good Luck Scrub Sugar Body Scrub 200g - Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood   I cant wait to try all these products as they smell delicious.   Its definitely worth looking out for subscription offers as soon as the new magazines hit the shelves as they are usually limited to a set number
