Superdrug Bargain Haul - Nails and Lashes

I am always on the lookout for bargains, so I was pleased to come across some great items in Superdrug recently that were on sale for bargain prices. I bought the Elegant Touch Frosted Fancy nails for 99p each and they had an offer of buy one get one half price so they were even more of a bargain.   They are a lovely turquoise colour with frosted edging in a stiletto shape.  Imagine if you were Elsa from Frozen these would be the perfect nails for you.   The Eylure Enchanted Divine Crime lashes were 59p each which was an absolute steel.  These are lovely long lashes which add plenty of volume.  I think these are about £6 normally although they are limited edition. You do need to look carefully for these offers are they aren't on the clearance shelf, they are just with the standard priced nails and lashes and they don't even advertise them as reduced so make sure you look carefully as they are worth picking up for these prices. Have you bought any bargain items

Primark Haul April

Wow I don't do a Primark Haul for ages and then like buses they all come at once.  Here is another Primark Haul.  Honestly I was just killing time before meeting my sister but there are just so many items in Primark that you didn't know you needed until you start looking around. I absolutely needed to buy these trainer socks.  Oliver & Company is my favourite Disney animated film and I have never seen any merchandise before and these socks were just so cute and only £2.50 for 3 pairs.    I also bought the Pepsi socks as it's my favourite drink so I bought these just cause I could.  Again only £2.50 for 3 pairs. OMG these are so fab the old school sweet socks with Refreshers, Wham and Fruit Salad and lolly socks with Feast, Calippo and Twister.  So retro. They should have included Fab as that would have fit right in.  These were both £3 for 3 pairs. As with most things at Primark I wasn't thinking of buying these but when I saw them I realised I needed t

My Slimming World Journey - Month Two

So it’s month 2 of my Slimming Word Journey (read about Month One here ) and surprisingly it’s still going well.  I think I mentioned in my previous email that I haven’t dieted before other than maybe cutting out cans of Pepsi in January and then inevitably drinking double the amount in February or cutting down on the amount of chocolate I eat but then bingeing on chocolate the next day.  Slimming World has been a revelation for me as I don’t feel like I’m on a diet as the food I’m eating is really nice and there is plenty of it.  So far I have lost over 1 stone in 8 weeks.  This is a combination of  changing what I eat as well as increasing the amount of exercise that I do.  I now try and go out for a 30 min walk most days and with the mild weather we have had so far this year it’s been easy to fit in these walks after work.  I haven’t been sticking to the Slimming World plan all the time as I am still going out for meals on a regular basis and as it’s Easter I have been partak

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter Review

I have to admit that I am not a big fan of highlighters as I think they can look too in your face for my taste, so when I am going for a full on glam look (which isn't often I might add), then I just want a lit from within subtle glow.  I think that I have found the perfect product from Charlotte Tilbury  the Hollywood Flawless Filter which promises a superstar youth glow.   Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite makeup and beauty brands, so I always take advantage of goody bag offers from Cult Beauty to stock up on CTs latest products.  The Hollywood Flawless Filter is £30 for 30ml and comes in 7 shades.  It has a doe-foot applicator which makes it easy to dot the product onto your skin and I find it blends just as well with fingers as with a beauty blender.  I picked shade 3 Light/Medium and although it looks a bit dark and orange in the bottle, it doesn't come out that way and it is the perfect shade for me. You can apply it all over the face as a flawless filer,
