So Much To Blog About So Little Time...

Morning Girlss! Very Excited this morning woke up to January's GLOSSYBOX!

Along with some other parcels this morning my Nicki Minaj mini O.P.I nail polishes, my bag and gorgeous Model Mirror which I will post about tomorrow for you all.

Every girl loves getting spoilt and although I haven't got much money this month I still thought I'd get myself a few little treat's, this is my first glossybox and I was excited to see what was in this month's as I've been waiting eagerly hoping no-one else gets there's first and post and spoils my surprise ha, when I opened my box I was very impressed with the presentation the little heart sticker was such a nice touch, getting me in the valentines  mood speaking of valentines my NAKED palette 2 also cam in the post this morning but thats my valentines present so I opened it without having to touch it or open it you can understand how I felt, but can't wait for valentines day now, anyway look at me babbling its all the excitement, this is what the inside of my glossybox looked like when I opened it:
 With this being my first glossybox I didn't know what to expect my first thoughts were wow, although I was a bit gutted about the size of the products and the box I don't know why I was expecting something bigger because I knew what you recieved were only samples but either way I was still happy about the box and I'm going to reuse the gorgeous bright pink box to for my makeup bonuss here's a close up of what was in the box...
 MURAD Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer- Dewy Finish 5ml- Full Size Price (30ml) £29.00
 WELDA One Step Cleanser & Toner 10ml- Full Price (100ml) £9.95
FAB Gentle Body Wash 56.7g- Full Price (226.8g) £13.00
 ORLY Nail Lacquer In Ruby 5.3ml - Full Size 18ml £6.95
 These Little Sweets Were An Added Little Touch Haven't Eaten It Yet But Thought It Was Cute
 EYEKO Skinny Eyeliner In Emerald Green  Was Full Size - £9.50 Per Pencil

This I think was my favorite out of the box and the primer I'm looking forward to using them and hopefully reviewing them a little gutted that the eye pencil was a green as it was only yesterday I bought a green eyeliner along with a black one so I could get the free Barry M nail art pen which you get free when you buy any 2 Barry M cosmetic's from Boots but that's fine as it's now my new favorite eyeliner colour as it's different from the good old faithful black and also compliments my hair color and skin color.
So the big question is would I be keeping my subscription and receiving the glossy box again yes I think so or at least for next month see what that has to offer although these are only samples I feel you get what you pay for and more, the box is also gorgeous and reusable so you get a little bonus too, mine this month only cost me £7 something because I used a code which I was very happy about but for £10 a month I feel you definitley get your money's worth I'm looking forward to February's box already!

Have you received your glossybox yet hope I haven't ruined it for you and if now will you be thinking about subscribing? bearing in mind you can unsubscribe at any minute its well worth a think about! :-)
Looking Forward to your comments!

Happy Shopper- £40 gift set with £50 worth of stuff for only £1.85!

Hiya, hope all is well haven't blogged in a few days so here's a quick catch up!x

So, we all are tempted by the January sales, and I do look however I wouldn't say that I go mad however yesterday I was over the moon, I popped in to my local boots and had a look at there 75% of sale stand, and as you can imagine there was only a few bits left, but this caught my eye...
I've had some sanctuary products before but they have all been from gifts I'd received from birthday's and Christmas, anyway on the box was a clearance label saying the item which was £40.00, is reduced to £7.50 due to the lid with a mirror on being missing so basically all it meant was that you couldn't give this as a gift anyway to cut a long story short, in the box were 7 things all which are still for sale on the Sanctuary stand in boots here is what is in the box at there current prices 
A Shower Cap (maybe not so great but good for keeping your hair dry)
Sanctuary Body Scrub (200ml) - £5.10
Sanctuary Body Butter (300ml) - £7.45
Sanctuary Body Lotion (250ml) - £5.10
Sanctuary Intensive Rescue Heel Balm (75ml) - £7.45
Sanctuary Body Lotion (75ml) - £2.40
Sanctuary Body Wash (250ml) - £5.10
Sanctuary Brightening Facial Radiance Exfoliator (100ml)- £10.20
For £7.50 you can see why I snapped this up the body butter alone cost's more than that and the brightening facial exfoliator is still selling in boots for £10 I've always wanted to try but haven't due to the price, tried it today it is absolutely amazing leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth and smells lush. 
Took this to the till and nearly fainted when it come through as £1.85 so even though it had been reduced to £7.50 because the lid and mirror being missing (which is a shame but still not complaining) it still had the 75% of included.

Also once I'd bought this I received a £5 off voucher for No7 products, boots always do little offers like these now and again and I always take advantage of them you'd be mad not too and especially there nail polishes gorgeous colours good quality RRP £7 with the voucher they'd only be £2 you cant complain.
I used my voucher on a no7 lash & brow perfector to help style my eyebrow and keep them in a nice shape all day RRP- £10 so I got it for £5 when I bought this I recieved another voucher again for £5 off so I took advantage and bought a No7 Beautiful Brows Pencil colour 05 Black RRP £8 so I got it for £3.

Sorry for the long blog think I got a little carried away but who wouldn't I made massive savings and ended up on my visit with my other buys at only spending £13 for over £80 worth of stuff not bad ey?

What's your best saving this January?

To The Shops

Went into town today, Thought I'd get a few little bits even though the weather was freezing and it was so so icy, here's what I bought.
1- Some socks from new look 3 pairs for £4.
2- Charles Worthington dream hair shampoo £1.99 each from bodycare
3- Just some superdrug own brand shaving gel and razors both 99p each.
4- Kardashians Konfidential Book- £14.99
5- 2 sets of different tights from primark £2-£2.50
6- Imperial Leather sensuous silk bath cream £1 from bodycare
7- 2 pairs of Knee high socks from primark £2.00
8- From left cosmopolitan powder brush £12.00 from superdrug 
MeMeMe Angels with halos illuminator £12.50 from superdrug
9-Green apple and lime conditioner -99p
10- Bastiste brit dry shampoo and two small blush dry shampoo's - -0.99p-£1.99 from superdrug
11-Cosmopolitan body magazine- £4.99 from WHSmith's
12- 2 Barry M Nail Polishes £4.99 each from superdrug
13-MUA Lipstick shade 3, £1.00 from superdrug

As you can see I bought quite a lot buy here's my favorites:




These BarryM nail polishes I like because there both quite summery even the grey and believe it or not summer is on its way (although it doesn't feel like it) the blue is a lovely colour too not too bright and not too dull , I would show you pictures of these lovely colours on but I have acrylics at the moment but will update this blog at some point.

 I'm quite looking forward to using this cosmopolitan powder brush as I've heard it's quite good for the price I'll let you know more once I've tried it, The MeMeMe illuminator I'm excited about because I haven't used an illuminator properly before hoping this will make my face look more radiant , from the size of it I think the price tag of £12.50 is a bit high but we will see. Loreal Sublime bronze I always buy this product and I swear buy it, I only buy the fair skinned one as I'm too scared to go orange and the colour is perfect however I wouldn't recommend medium or even dark, because judging buy the colour of the fair skin one, the other's may be a bit too orange.
The first purchase I've made from MUA, but I've heard there products are quite good for the price and for only £1 I probably can't complain.

This book has been on my wishlist for ages and I've finally found it, cant wait too get my head into this as I love the Kardashian Family.

And last but least Charles Worthington dream hair shampoo for full body now only at £1.99 each, I can remember when these used to be quite expensive but I have always like how soft this shampoo left my hair, the presentation of the bottle also looks gorgeous and it also smells nice too.



Leopard Nails

Will be adding too this post later of things I've seen online that I really want but can't afford :-( wah wah anyway be back on  here soon :-)
