Why I Love Soap and Glory

20140109-132405

Partial to the odd luxury product-yes, but for ol’ day to day usage, Soap and Glory take righteous place. In a heavily dominated ‘big brand’ market, filled with generic shower gels and body lotions, I must say nothing really comes close; it’s well priced, smells amazing and their kitsch, witty phrased packaging hits all the right buttons. Whats great is that I managed to get my hands on The Yule Monty gift set. Call it a gift from me to me at the bargain price of £27! Any whoo, my bottom draw is now packed to the rafters and these beauty’s are going to last me the whole year.

A little secret, their Original Pink Formula 1 eau de parfum is a complete Miss Dior dupe.

My make up encased!!

20140105-164758.jpg

So I have one of the best friends in the whole world and knowing me like the back of her hand, she bought me this amazing make-up portfolio from Laura Mercier. I’ve been wanting one of these cases for AGES. Its just  gorgeous! In metallic brown, it has individual zipper sections that attach by magnets, plus it has a section for brushes. YEY!

To make things even better it came with three products; a Refillable Custom Compact including two eye colour duets and cheek colour, Kohl Eye Pencil and Lip Glace.

The range of colours are reaaaally natural and wearable; I’ll get loads of wear out of all of these products and best yet you can take them from day to night, especially the eye shadows.

I can’t LOVE this more! YEY and YEY!

Check it out here and definitely purchase if your looking for really versatile products and luxurious make up case that will turn people green with envy.

Lots of love,

Fragrance LOVIN’!

Narcisco Rodriguez For Her

I love perfume, although, I do get bored and end up having a few on rotation, which is not so great for my bank balance but at least I smell nice 🙂

At the minute, these three have been my go to fragrances and I must say that I’m not getting bored of any. Through the day I wear a lot of English Pear and Freesia, it’s super fresh yet has a floral note with the freesia. The only downside is that it doesn’t last very long and for the hefty price, you’d think otherwise, so I end up carrying a mini decanter in my handbag; problem solved!

If I’m in the mood for something more deeper, more heavier, more night time-y, I grab Black Orchid by Tom Ford. This is AMAAAZE. I managed to grab this during the Debenhams pre -xmas fragrance sale, which meant it was a tad cheaper, but still, I could only afford 30mls!! Literally though, you need one squirt; it’s pretty heavy, last AGES and develops beautifully as the night goes on!

Finally, a newbie to my continuously extending collection is For Her by Narciso Rodriguez. I would say this  perfume that sits perfectly between Black Orchid and English Pear and Freesia; meaning not too light nor too heavy. This also wears beautifully and get lots of comments when I’m wearing it.  Now, when you first smell it, don’t be put off as it comes across quite floral, but trust me, it’s a complete grower and you’ll be glad you read this post telling you to give it a whirl!

What I love about Xmas: Lush’s Snow Fairy!

20131219-193632.jpg

20131219-193641.jpg

20131219-193652.jpgEvery year LUSH brings out there limited edition range and my favorite is Snow Fairy; I think its their number one bestseller at Xmas, so I guess I’m not the only one.

I got my first sniff of this a few Christmases ago when that familiar smell came wafting from the wrapping paper; a Lush gift set, I can smell it a mile off! Snow Fairy was their poking from the polystyrene foam tubes , that seem to end up all over the floor! tut! So I gave it a whirl and I was hooked, the down side, trying to make it last. This beauty is only available around the festive season 😦 and this year I remembered to pick up a bottle. YEY!

It’s not your typical herbally Lush smelling product, instead LUSH! describe it as… ‘Sweet, fruity pink shower gel loved by people everywhere.’

I think it smells of pear drops mixed with a few Haribo’s and  the best bit, you can smell it allllll day on your skin, LOVE IT!!!

£60 in Topshop, bought for £20!!

 

Hey Ladies,

I’ve been back to the Topshop market this week! YEY! Sometimes I go and there is NAFF all, but I really dropped on this time and managed to come away with four pairs of shoes!!

The best thing is, is that 3 of the pairs are still available in Topshop! I was speaking to the guy that runs it and he says he has a contract with Arcadia so has bits and bobs from their other stores too.

Every single pair of boots you see in the top piccie are from this market, I think I have a problem?!

But if your like me, who can justify every single purchase, then why the hell not?!

 The pair of Shelley heels I mentioned in a previous post about Made In Chelsea Style , check it out here, so I was sooo excited when I saw them for £20!! I also did a post on a few other bits that I bought  last time I shopped their, check it out here

You can find his stalls around Yorkshire; Dewsbury every Friday, Huddersfield every Saturday and Barnsley every Tuesday. TOP TIP GET THERE EARLY!

I think there is a Topshop Clearance store in London, if your not ‘up north’, check it out here, I’ve never been but let me know if you have!! Maybe its worth a trip?

Lip Conditioners: Sleek Pout Polish and Rimmel London Colour Rush

20131019-181258.jpg

20131019-181314.jpgI bought these two beauties in London at the weekend. They were impulse purchases, which I think are generally the best!

I’m always drawn to Sleek products because they are soooo pigmented and have some incredible Mac dupes. This lip pot reminds me of a lip conditioner I had years ago from Mac, for some reason they even sell them anymore, but they were pretty much the same.

These Sleek Pout Polish come in 12 shades and every single one I swatched in Superdrug was loooovely. But, seen as though its Autumn, I went for the Perfect Plum shade. Although it’s classed as a lip conditioner, it is not a balm; its super glossy but not sticky like a lip gloss. I’ve worn it on couple of occasions and you have to keep reapplying.  You also need to apply it with a lip brush; you can’t just slap it on your lips or clown comes to mind… 😉 20131022-095833.jpg

20131022-095844.jpgThen, I picked up this Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm in Drive Me Nude. I think there a copy of the Cliniques’ chubby sticks but for a third of the price. I’ve never had a chubby stick but I’ve heard great reports saying there amaaze! So, I probably should pick one up!

Over the past couple of days I’ve been wearing this and found it to be more drying to say it’s a balm. I’m still not won over by the formula but I’ll keep going with it. The colour has a reddish undertone and very build-able for a nude shade which makes it incredibly wearable. It comes in 7 shades.
