Ciate Advent Calendar

Hi everyone, so today I just wanted to show you the much lusted after Ciate advent calender. My mum tried to purchase this for me off the Selfridges website but unfortunately it had sold out. However, while I was in Luton I spotted it on QVC Beauty (that channel is my guilty pleasure). So I phoned my mum straight away and told her (for some reason she wasn't as excited as I was lol). I am hoping to do a post everyday to show you guys what polishes are in it and swatches. The majority of the shades are available to buy full size from Ciate. I can't find a link on the QVC website anymore but hopefully they will get some more back in before December or if you guys know anywhere else to find it then feel free to leave the links below!
I'm so excited to get to open this daily and try all the new colours out! Jennifer x

My first RAK!

Hey everyone, so a couple of weeks ago the lovely Rachel from aprettyobsession.com organised a RAK with a few beauty bloggers and I jumped at the chance. I love giving a receiving presents and the whole surprise element made it even better. So Jess from x-labeaute.blogspot.com was chosen to buy my RAK. The parcel actually arrived while I was in England and I was dying to get home to open it (I'm so sad haha). I then had trouble locating Jess's blog to tell her I received the parcel as I didn't realise she had changed her blog name. So Jess if you are reading this I apologize again for taking so long to contact you! So on to the parcel!
The items came in the xmas glossy box and had xmas paper inside so felt very festive altogether! I am actually starting to finally accept that it is nearly xmas already and this parcel helped with that process haha
On to the products: I was so excited to see a Balmi lip balm as I already ready have to raspberry one and wanted to get some more but aren't available anywhere near me :(.I have never tried a Collection nail polish so I am excited to give this a go! Also I own very few Natural Collection goodies, so can't wait to play with these! The colours will make a very pretty wearable winter day look (phew that is a long title lol). So I wanna say a big thank you to Jess for all the goodies! And go check out her blog if you haven't already! x-labeaute.blogspot.com I sent my parcel off today so can't wait for that person to receive it to see what they think! Thanks for reading!

Oh! Organics

Hey everyone so a few weeks back I was reading the lovely Leanne's blog (check out her post here http://asliceofmylifewales.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/review-oh-organics-melissa-toner.html ) and seen a post on Oh! Organics. As I suffer from eczema I am always on the hunt for products that won't react to my skin. She said how the company were offering samples so of course I had to snap one up! The company were so nice and sent me out a sample of the Melissa toner and moisturiser! The packaging was so cute and included a lovely note! I would tell everyone to check out their website http://www.ohorganics.co.uk/melissa-range.html and try out their products. The toner was lovely and refreshing and moisturiser was very hydrating! They both smell very fresh and herbal! I definately want to check out some more of their products especially the lip balms! Check out the photos below! You can request 2 of the sample pots of moisturiser and a small spray of toner on their website. Full size moisturiser is £24 for 60ml and the toner is £7.50 for 50ml.
Thanks for reading! Jennifer xx

She Said Beauty Box November 2012

Hey everyone, so I was really suprised to come home from college yesterday and find my latest She Said Beauty box waiting for me. Because I live in the Republic of Ireland I usually don't receive my beauty boxes until a week after everyone else :( So on to the box, I normally love all the products that come in this beauty box but I am a bit divided this time! I will use all the products I received, I just wasn't wowed by them (hope that makes sense haha). I have just included photos of all the items, if you would like a review of anything just let me know! Also let me know what you received in your She Said Beauty box this month!
Thanks for reading! Jennifer xx

Of course I had to go to the Inlgot store while I was there (which just happens to be right across the road from my bros! (Heaven!!!) So I picked up a few bits that I could use in my college kit!
