Thank you Body shop :)

 

For Christmas the lovely people at the body shop sent me a gift card worth £20!

It was burning a hole in my pocket…so naturally i was straight to spend it :)

I love Christmas sales at the body shop as the butters are soooo cheap and limited edition scents are available. I usually stock up on peach and raspberry but since i have so many of these i got the passion fruit body butter and scrub and also the raspberry scrub!

Getting into the festive spirit!

I don't know about you guys but i haven't been feeling very festive…maybe its due to the recession but I'm seriously skint…i normally spend more on wrapping the present than the actual gift :) I just think the presentation of a gift is soooo important.  Last year i wrapped my gifts in brown paper, tied them with a red gingham bow and attached homemade salt dough ginger bread men to the bows! I wish i had a picture to show you :(

However this year due to lack of funds and time I've had to settle with good old Primark…pinks not for everyone at xmas but i think this xmas wrap idea looks good for the little time I've had…i just  the little glittery birds are so cute and cheap :)

Lush :)

Ok, so i know there has been LOTS of lush reviews lately but I just have to rant about my two favourite lush products…I'm surprised i haven't seen them blogged about before as i think they smell DEVINE :)

Also call me mad but unlike lots of fellow bloggers and friends i never get a headache in lush…in fact id love to work with that scent all day..imagine how good your hair and clothes would smell :)

Both of my favourites are bath bars as in my opinion they make the most creamy, soft bubbles…also i hate bath bombs with glitter, stars etc in them! The bars can be halved, quartered etc so they last longer and they leave my skin feeling sooooo soft and smelling great :)

Creamy candy bath: This gets brownie points for cuteness..its pink with a little flower on and the smell is uber sweet..just how i like it! Creates the softest bubbles is really moisturising on the skin!

Karma bubble bar: This scent is so unusual…oranges and spices…kind of a hippy, incense smell lol! Doesn't feel as soft on the skin as the candy bar does but this lingers on the skin much longer leaving me smelling…well….LUSH!

What are your favourite lush products?

Magic mitt!


See this mitt...it's magic....Introducing the easiest way in the world to remove your make up!!


My salon has recently started using a new makeup range called Jane Iredale, and the magic mitt is one of their best sellers. Its the kind of product that makes you think "what did i ever do without it?"


It is soooo handy, you don't need any products, just the mitt so it is ideal for travel, staying over at friends/boyfriends etc! It removes all mascaras..even waterproof!! I think if it can get my mascara off it must be good lol!! I think the proof of how well it removes eye makeup can be seen in the pic..once upon a time my mitt was a lovely peach colour :(


It is made from specially knitted micro-fibers, When wet they create a hydromechanical process that breaks the surface tension of the oils that bond make up to the skin. This emulsion is then swept away by the mitt. To clean it all you do is wash under the tap with an anti-bacterial hand soap...cannot be machine washed lol!!! It retails for around £15 but the cheapest i found was £11.70 on http://www.lovedbyyou.co.uk/product-jane-iredale-magic-mitt-1384 if anyone is interested :)


The great thing is that it is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive as it doesnt affect the skins natural acid mental....so happy days lol!


Has anyone heard of anything similar??xx
