This was Novembers, a Clinique moisture surge sample, so i am looking forward to next months to see what delights are offered! Well worth having a beauty club card fo sho! :)
The Body Shop on leeds Briggate is always great at hosting events. I’ve attended a few now and i am always made to feel so welcome and enjoy seeing all the new offeringrs or love the pampering that goes on that night!
The blogger event happened last week, to ensure bloggers got first look at the Christmas goodies. However, i was feeling pretty down and so didn’t go/ forgot about it, and only missed out myself really so that was silly! Then The Body Shop Leeds @BriggateBeauty messaged to say there was a VIP event this week so i could still get my festive hat on and enjoy the new products! Yay!
Upon arrival our names ticked, fizz handed and coats taken. We were free to browse the store and take in all the colourful festive treats and sample the delcious fruit scented treats all around us! There was an introductions from the team at Briggate followed by a make up demonstration. Of which i learnt something new about the foundation; it is sourced and made by farmers themselves in Mexico (i think, i’ll look it up...) and it so ethically made! How anazing is that for one step further that all other fair trade cosmetics brands?!
This years Christmas collection is designed by House of Holland, who is run by Henry Holland, one of my favourite designers! His quirky sense of style and super cool quotes are by faf my favourite part of HoH! The design is on point with his style which means there atre SO many items i NEED to buy from The Body Shop this season! It is my dream!
Look at the photo above, for all the joyful colours and festive favourites!
I love the baubles, which have 3 to choose; strawberry (which i got last year), shea and festive plum. At £9 i think they are such an amazing present, as the body butter is so luciously soft to use and would be a a delightful treat for the recipient!
With this being a VIP event of course there was an offer on for the night, to receive 40% nearly all items and a goody bag upon purchase! Obviously i snapped up some HoH treats and only spent £18.90!
As you can see i went for the lips tip, which is a tin filled with a trio of matte liquid lipsticks £15, and a body puff filled with glitter, which is SO needed at Christmas!
Then we were handed a treat bag with body sorbet, hand cream and a lip product in it! Such a gorgeous treat! Sadly i ciuldn’t stay nor get in to have my make up done or arm massage but i shall be back again soon, to shop some more for Christmas presents!Thanks to Briggate Beauty/ The Body Shop for inviteing me and giving me the opportunity to enjoy the festive goodies! :?
I got this box from Look Fantastic which is full of Bare Minerals goodies! It was £35 but i had a code from the Martin Lewis website to get it for £31.50!
It includes a full sized mascara and complexion rescue, plus deluxe minis of lots of other things and a powder brush! I really love the Bare Minerals foundation as the powder is soft on my skin and coverage is medium!
I'm saving the box a little while until i've used up my other make up, around xmas time, but will be using it all and enjoying being kinf to my skin. :)
I’ve still been around, posting ocassional tweets and instagramming mainly. Not much of a snapshot of whats going on in my life, which usually isn’t something i share here, but i think there should be a change so you can get to know more me.
On July 1st i woke up to find out my car has been involved in an accident. I’d parked it outside my house and a biker hit it. He died on inpact. His choices to not wear a helmet, and drink were the cuase and effect, but it involved me and none of it was my fault. Since then i’ve not felt myself at all. I’ve felt down, due to my life being changed, my indepence has gone and car prices have gone up so much that its going to take a while to get one, even though i had a pay out which matched what i paid last year.
I’d just got back from holiday that week it happened, and i felt great, i was so happy, really. Now i am just a but lost. The dark nights where i have to walk home are hard. The weekends where i have to get the bus if i want to anywhere is draining me.
My love of popping out for a coffee has been taken away from me.
It will take a while for me to get back to blogging, and i am going to the doctor to see about how they can help me, but samspeaks will be blogging for Blogmas for definitely, and hopefully i’ll get some giftguides up soon. X
