Jemma Kidd Bodyform Free Lip gloss

As soon as I heard about this offer a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been wandering up and down the lady aisles of Boots, Superdrug etc, waiting to see these on shelves. At first I couldn’t see anything, but then last week I spotted the lip gloss attached to a pack of liners, but it was a weird box thing, and I really didn’t see the need for it.

So today I happened to be in Boots, and I saw a sign saying ‘Bodyform £1’, to my surprise not only were the lip glosses attached but there were 2 different shades to choose from- rose and orchid.

So two packs of bodyform later (which will always come in handy lets admit it) and two lip glosses for just £2, seems a like a bargain to me :)

Project Runway Season 6

For many years this little show has brought much happiness into my life. The glamour, the drama, the craziness, yet it all revolves around fashion…what else?

The new series (6) has just started running on Sky, much to my boyfriends horror I am hooked all over again. When I say all over again, I used to live, breathe this show when it originally started running. Were talking nearly over five years ago.

This years contestant’s, I guess it’s either love or hate with some of them, and that’s exactly why there on there in the first place.

I love the girl who looks like Penelope Cruz (Shirin) she’s already won one challenge and always seems to have a good eye for detail.

I also love Ra’mon Lawrence, well I am actually tipping him for the win, but who knows, there’s still a long way to go yet. His passion and dedication to the industry is so refreshing and his designs are always constructed amazingly. I adore everything he has made so far.

This show will always amaze me.

Boots Christmas Catalogue- Gifts Galore!

For the past however many years, as long as I can remember, around this time of year, I always get excited over Boots Christmas gifts. There’s just something about them that makes me all animated.

To my surprise, I was out shopping with a friend yesterday and what did we spy, but the Boots Christmas catalogue! It’s funny, I guess it kind of has that same feel of an Argos book; you just want to grab it as fast as you can and scan with your eyes everything in it

The thing with Boots they have such a vast amount of gifts, reality is there not going to sell everything, and it is almost guaranteed the majority of products get left over for the January sales, which is always a bonus factor.

However it is always nice to have some much sought after gifts, on Christmas day and not forgetting the whole it’s about giving not receiving thing.

So what did I spy?

An immaculate display of Urban Decay goodies

Benefit bonanza

A nice revisit to Jeffrey Fulvimari’s Bobbypin (I always try and get at least one bobbypin product each Christmas, I just love the quirky designs)

And last but certainly not least, the much loved and sought after Soap and glory, I must admit, I’m gutted I didn’t pick up on this brand last Christmas, because I remember they had some quirky sets in last years catalogue, however this years offering seems to be bursting with variety, there literally is something for everyone!

And to turn it on its head, Soap & Glory’s men gift sets also are available! Va Va Groom all the way. Swapping pink packaging for a punkish red, it all feels a little retro.

I see London...

This may be a shock to some, but up until last weekend I had never been to London. Yet it was always the place I desired to visit.

I must say it was in some ways totally what I expected and some ways totally different. I was a little (very) nervous with the transport, I’m not one for crowds and chaos, but luckily my boyfriend was a little more used to it than me. Admittingly we got on a few wrong tubes, but we just got off at the next stop.

SO what did we see?
General sightseeing, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, The London eye, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Harrods etc etc.

We also had a venture up to Camden, somewhere I’ve longed to go for many years.
Me and my boyfriend love eating out and we had the most amazing meals, both on Friday night and Saturday night, we ventured out for an Italian in Covent Garden and a Chinese in Chinatown :)

Now most importantly shopping… Well we didn’t do that much shopping! Infact all I did purchase was an emergency pair of primark pumps. We had an attempt at Oxford Street, but after being elbowed several times, I pretty much came to the realisation that this wasn’t the best place for me.

My boyfriend did accidentally lead me straight to Selfridges! I spied a mammoth MAC counter, and had a wander around Illamasqua. Whilst also browsing Tiffany.

The last couple of hours before we left, we decided to go to the Tate, I do enjoy visiting art gallery’s, and I was pleased to see the Pop exhibition on, there was a nice Andy Warhol collection, not just his work but interesting photographs and articles about his life.

All in all, it was just a lovely weekend; it was real nice spending time with my boyfriend, and a trip I won’t be forgetting anytime soon♥
