Benefit treats from Christmas

I was a lucky Sammy this Christmas and got some lovely Benefit sets and one without even asking for any! That never happens to me! 
My Auntie bought me this 'Party Like A Rockstar' set which is amazing, as i never asked! Yay! 
Filled my favourite Benefit product POREfessional, some bronze shadows, Hoola which i am loving on my cheeks a d TWO mascara. Yes two, one for curling (Rollerlash) and one for volume (They're Real) . I am loving it to grab easily on a morning. 
I picked up this at the airport, as i hadn't seen it in shops or online! I admit i didn't understand what these creaseless shadows were. 
But after swatching them here i LOVE them amd wore them all weekend!
They can be worn alone as a shimmer for lids or i did add some powder shadow for a bit more colour which worked great, as these help the shadow stick! 
Handy these are in tubes too, so i can take it with me for an afternoon touch up :) 
The Real Cheeky Party set was the first set i biught when it came out. Thw previous years blush set sold out by Christmas, and i didn't want to miss out in this amazing set!
It is filled with 5 blusjers, each worth £23.59, a mini watts up which i use everyday now to highlight my apple cheeks and the They're Real duo of liner and maacara! Amazing value at £29.59! 

So with these 3 sets i am all set on a morning to look my best! :) 

Toni and Guy treats

I've been a fan of Toni & Guy for a whike now, but i tended not to buy it due to the high end price. However, after the winter months hit mt scalp was awful and i decided to splurge. Then for Christmas i got two Toni& Guy Matthew Williamson gift bags, filled with all sorts of haircare products! 
This large bag has a Texture dry shampoo which i always like to have in my cupboard! An elixir which is tropical scented and named, formulated to tackle those oesky split ends. Plus there is a heat protection mist, perfect for when i straighten my hair after getting (running) to work.
My brother got me this smaller bag which is filled with a mini shampoo and contioner. A cleanse duo for damaged hair, perfect for these winter tortured locls. It also contains a Volumiser spray, to be used on dry hair to add some omph! I always need an omph, so another perfect addition! 
Loving hiw great my hair is and smells after using Toni& Guy products. I will definitely stick with the brand and solirge to keep my bleach hair soft! :)

DEW the Hoola

I have been using DEW the Hoola, my sample size for the Hoola Benefit Cosmetica kit, since my holiday in December and i can't get enough! It gives a subtle colour under my foundation and it is just a brilliant product! 
It is the exact same shade as the powder of Hoola and looks amazing on my face! I cannot WAIT until the full soze launches in March! 
See, not as see through as normal! Love ittttt! :)

New No7 Velvet Lashes

I'm sure there will be a few posta of this new No7 Velvet Lash mascara, but i just had to say it is so great! 
I had a quick look at the wand and didn't think it would be amazing, but great for everyday use. As a mascara fanatic i snapped it up and i am so glad i did! 

I've been using it nearly a month now after buying it using a £3 off No7 glossy voucher and love it loads! This mascara actually does feel like velvet on, but makes my lashes look good too! I genuinwly love it and would say grab this to anyone looking for a new maacara! :) 

Boots 70% off sale

I go every year to this sale, and LOVE IT!
Ilove the grabbing bargains anyways, as I am true bargain hunter, so when I findo ut Boots are offering 70% off their gift sets, I have to get all of the gorgeous things I want.

It's also an excellent way of getting lots of things for Birthdays throughout the year. Me and my friends are Boots fans, so there's always something they're wanting and lusting after.
So this year I managed to grab;

Soap& Glory - The Whole She-bang £18
Jack Wills Stockings £6.60 - Girls& boys - Christmas is now sorted for everyone!
Mark Hill blonde hair set £3
Sanctuary Spa Collection £13.50
Plus lots of other amazing treats.
I got myself a Mark Hill set and two others, as i think they'll be a great add on for my friends Birthdays!
Of course I always snap up something for myself, so I got the Soap& Glory eye pallet for £4.80, Superdry lip glosses for £4.20 and Jack Wills lip gloss mini stocking for £1.80!
Ilove the sale event, and always drag my mum along, who enjoys getting the bits& pieces for all the birthdays who she buys for.

A top tip is to wrap everything once bought, label it, then you know you definitely have their presents sorted. As I do tend to overbuy when I think I haven't spent enough. So I am wrapping, and smiling as I know I've bought some gorgeous gift sets.

Also, for one friend, I'm making a gift basket, with all the gift sets, opening them up and arranging the gift basket. Sounds like a great idea, if you think there might be a bit too much of the same in the gift sets again.! :)

I am back

I know people do this all the time, drop off the face of the earth never to blog again. However, i've taken a month and now i am back blogging. 
Over Christmas i had some (all of the) drinks and got a little worse for wear, to say the least. I chilled out and enjoyed my holiday. 
I used up all my Lush bathbombs in that chill out process, so a blog on that to come soon! 
Then back at work i took over the social media, marketing and some other admin ON TOP OF my accounts job. Like thhat's a lot and on an evening i just sit like a vegitable. Don't get me wrong though, i LOVE IT! So much to do and the variety of it makes it so much fun. A little insight that i don't usually blog about, so check out my work on @highgatebeds social media accounts!
As you probably saw in November, i passes my driving test and so i went on my forst outing in my Mums car! We went to a local shop, which sells cheap Topshop clothes. They used to have a stall on our market, but changed a year or so ago, and i was gutted as i couldn't het to the new shop when it moved! Now, i shall be there heading there all the time! I got the leather bag i wantes for £20, and it should be £65! Plus two other ones including the fold over large clutch suede should be £37, got it for £14! Plus a cute glittery top for £6, which is £14 in store! 
Now, i am queuing posta for the next few days, and i shall make time to keep it going daily! I have so much to get theough, like all my Christmas beauty gifts and new skin or haircare rountines, so stick with me and i will get through it all! Thank you so much for reading and being a follower in the past year! :)
