Ray of sunshine


L'occitane have beautiful free gifts every now and then. This month they were offering 'a little sunshine' to their customers.

This gift had hand cream, foot cream, shower gel, body lotion and soap. Plus a mini lavender growing seeds. All of that for free! 

As always the smell of the products is delightful. Full of floral and buttery aromas, which leave my skin feeling great. 

I am saving these minis for my holidays next month, as they are perfect travel companions. 

Sign up to L'Occitane emails for future goodies :) 





Paint the town red!


I found this gem in Pound World this week! 

Vaseline is a brilliant little tin to carry around to keep my lips lovrly and soft and hydrated! 

This limited edition tin is a red tinted jelly, which has a subtle hint of colour. 

Excellent bargain for £1, as well as working brilliantly!

Brow power!


All this month Benefit Cosmetics are raising money for charity, their Bold Is Beautiful project, which is where all profits from any Brow Wax services going to LGFB and Refuge

So, being a sucker for a great cause, I had to get in on it! Plus I haven't had my brows waxed or touched since January! :-O

I recently wrote about the Benefit Cosmetics month of brows, and their Bold Is Beautiful project here and now I went on to get mine tamed!

Before: 

All grow in and thick, so lots to work with now! 

I visited White Rose Centre Leeds, to see Beth, the best brow girl ever!
Super friendly, great at her job and fun to be around when going through a wax.

After; 

Nice& tidy, but still the thickness i want. 
My arch is slowly coming along, hoping soon it will be perfect! 

Also, I got my free Gimme Brow! Woo!


Then I booked in next month, as there is an offer on for a free Benefit hand held brow mirror & a mini deluxe It's Potent eye cream! 
I will have an eyebrow tint then too, as it will be my holiday month, and I like a bit of a pamper session to go with that.  Details of this June promotion can be found in store, or on the back or your free Gimme Brow card!



I always do alternative months with the tints. 

I really enjoyed the visit to the Benefit brow bar, it cheered me up and I liked it being a quiet 7.30pm slot :-) 

I recommend trying out a Benefit brow wax, especially with the promotion offer of free Gimme Brow this month!

My inspiration...


I have taken out quite a few magazine subscriptions, as there are lots of offers on them right now, plus it is so much cheaper than in the shops! 

Also this month there are a few magazine freebies! 

Marie Claire has free Neal's Yard hand cream!

Instyle has free Clinique Serum!

Glamour has lots of packet samples inside, for only £2!

I am well stocked up and chilled out this bank holiday, reading all of these and taking inspiration for my outifts, make up and summer days planning!

Bold is beautiful; You are cordially invited!

On Sunday 10th May 9.30am, there is a march happening organised by the beauties at Benefit Cosmetics

Those Benebabes have organised an excellent charity walk, in aid of their new campaign Bold Is Beautiful


The new event is for the two chairties; Refuge, who I am a huge supporter of myself and Look Good Feel Better, which is supporting women with cancer! 
Two brilliant causes and worthy of our money! 

Ahh our money, how can we get involved?!

There will be little treats all around the march, like the ones above, for you to grab in the form of Benefit goodies!  Yay!


Also, at Benefit brow bar this month, book in for your usual wax and not only will the money go to the charity, but you'll also receive a completely free Gimme Brow
Erm, AMAZING! 


So people, what are you waiting for?! 
Get your gym and running fear ready, stretch out those muscles and get walking and waxing!! :) 


That's me in my sweat band, limbering up!

Who doesn't love a cheeky free sample? I for one, like to try before i buy and so freebies are the things i look for on brand counters o...
