A fondness for a freebie

I will admit now I am a total sucker for a free gift.

Be it one that I will never use or one that just looks pretty. For magazines it has always been the same, if it came to choosing between mags in my teens I would base my judgement solely on the free gifts on offer.



Glamour have infamously given away Benefit products
before and caused a frenzy in the process. Well thanks to a gentleman called Martin Lewis, I was excited to hear they were giving away Clinique items with their April 2011 issue, with 10 different items to choose from.



I decided I would not go mad and buy all of them (even if I was tempted to do so) instead just but the one. So I opted for the lipstick, as I really don’t own many at all and I WILL use this product.



I also recently bought a pack of Bodyform, like last year they have come out with a new collection of tin designs. This pack was on offer at Boots for £1, not bad considering these tins are very cute indeed.



I guess it’s not too bad being a woman after all

  7. I have tons of those Bodyform tins but I don't think they quite thought it through - half of the sizes of the products don't fit in them and it's rather annoying.

    The lippy is a gorgeous colour - post some outfit pics so we can see it on you!

  8. Thanks so much for the heads up... in the last 45mins I have visted 3 boots, 1 superdrug, 1 tesco and 5 newsagents! I got the lipstick, mascara, long lasting gloss and the "all about the eyes". Well I actually got it twice after the women in the newsagents was telling me how amazing it is :D x
