Haul - ELF, Superdrug, Topshop

Over the last week I've been buying a few bits and pieces that I thought I'd share with you! I'm still actually waiting for a few more bits, so there might be another one next week! I'm sorry about these photos, I STILL have not set up my iMac here at Chris' parents, so my editing software is a bit shoddy, which is a shame as I have a few things up my sleeve!

Body Shop Home Fragrance

I just wanted to write a very quick post about a little favourite of mine!

It seems like forever ago that I actually wrote about The Body Shop, I had a bit of a love affair with them, spent way too much money, brought everything I lusted over and now am just working my way through everything I brought. The only thing I've repurchased recently are these lovely Home Fragrance Oils and I really need to have a bit of a rave about them!

NOTD: Models Own

Todays NOTD is a Models Own special! I have to admit I've been wanting to try Models Own for longer than I can ever remember but I'm so dissappointed by these!

Meet the Brand: Scarlett Hearts

These little independent jewellery makers are taking over my life, I've gone from hating wearing any jewellery except my Pandora and special necklace from Chris, to wanting to wear everything! Anyway A Sprinkle of Glitter mentioned this little brand Scarlett Hearts on her Youtube recently and I instantly started googling to find them! I found them very easily and fell in love! Here's their bio;

"We are a small, independent company running an online boutique of handmade jewellery and accessories. Each piece is handmade, and we prefer it this way. This means every customer knows the piece they receive is filled with love. Everything in our store is inspired by the people we know and our favourite things.

17 Eyes - Mardi Gras

Just a verrry quick post today folks! Today I have some pictures and swatches of 17 Eyes - Mardi Gras! I've started a bit of a love affair with 17, I always thought they were a bit cheap and nasty but I'm starting to find some absolute gems of products! Anyway, I don't want to waste your time teaching you about this, it's just a solo glitter eyeshadow and you can see for yourself that the pigmentation is impressive for something so cheap! 

These eyeshadows are available in boots for £3.85!

I have a lot of 17 products to work myself through at the moment, I can't wait to show them all to you!

Meet The Brand: Montagne Jeunesse

A brand I've used a lot of products by Montagne Jeunesse, I've always loved their products, I love face masks, I love Montagne Jeunesse. I have such a weakness for buying their little sachets when I'm running around Superdrug buying "essentials". So I thought I'd take a bit of time to introduce them to you guys, like me you've probably all used or at least seen them on the shelves, but probably don't know what they stand for!

Weekly Wants #18 - DotComGiftShop



Todays NOTD is MEMEME Jordan, which is a stunning pastel green colour which is just beautiful, I just wish it suited me more! It makes my nails look so messy and just yuck I think, which is a shame as I really love pastel nails! I can't seem to find it anywhere online though, I'm not sure where it came from! Very weird!

I'd love to see your favourite pastel shades!

Meet the Brand: Mosie Cottage

Everyone knows that I have such a soft spot for shabby chic and kitsch items, my home is FULL of bits and pieces. In fact, it's kinda a running joke that I'm a bit addicted to my collection! Anyway a while ago I stumbled over this little Facebook page; Mosie Cottage. It's a very cute shabby chic accessory shop and I just couldn't wait to place an order! I really wanted to share my new pretties with you, but first, here is what Mosie Cottage say about themselves!

"Mosie Cottage is a little venture by Kaylee Chesher and Faye Holden.

Named after three very special people (Mikey, Ollie and Rosie) this is a small start to something that is very close to our hearts.

We enjoy making little trinkets and wanted to share our passion with friends, family and some friends we haven't made yet.

We make hand finished products, which ensures each and every item is unique. Items are made with a shabby chic theme in mind and finishing will reflect this. We feel it just adds to the charm of our little pieces as you know every single item is a labour of love.

The gallery contains photos of existing items for sale and we're also happy to discuss personalised and bespoke orders, just message us with your requirements. We keep our prices low, covering materials and the little details, so everyone can afford a little bit of Mosie Cottage in their home.

We're happy to look into postage for items, this will be at cost plus a small margin for materials to enable us to get your item to you as securely and safely as possible.

Thank you for looking at our page, we hope our treasures makes your heart happy :)

Lots of love,
Mosie Cottage"

I really recommend going and checking out their Facebook page ( and ordering a little treat for yourself! Now I just need a home for all my new things!

MEMEME Lip Cream - China Rose

As you lovely followers know, I'm a complete newbie to lipstick. It's nothing I've ever dabbled in - I know! Anyway, recently MEMEME cosmetics had a very special offer on after reaching 10,000 Facebook followers! A Lip Cream and a Blush Box for a tiny £7. It's such an amazing offer, one that saved me a whopping £10.50. For my Lip Cream I chose this beautiful pink shade named China Rose!

A tale of two new ducks...

It's not new news that I love ducks, they are the cutest thing ever and I spend a lot of time banging on about anything that has a duck on it! Anyway, here are two new ducks for my collection! I love this little Jubilee themed duck money box, it looks mega cute on my fireplace!

I had a bit of a mental breakdown when I found out that there had been a duck Pandora charm for a while and I didn't know! Where have I been all this time?! Anyway being the spoiled girlfriend I am, Chris treated me to a new charm! In LOVE! Look at it's little beak!

NOTD: Models Own

My love for glitter polishes just grows and grows, I know everyone moans about glitter polishes sooo much, they can be a nightmare to remove. Luckily for me, I never get to the point where I need to remove polish, I normally end up peeling it off and I also coat it loads in top coat to make it easier!

I decided to wear this on its own, it takes a few coats but I love the effect it gives!

I love this little polish from Models Own, it's Magenta Divine and you can buy it for £5 here on the Models Own website, and here in Boots.

MUA Heaven & Earth

Firstly let me apologise for the lateness of this post, I was aiming to get it out last month and it completely slipped my mind! 

I've been dying to get my hands on this little palette for so long, it's VERY hard to get hold of, so I was glad to finally place an order online on their website where they have it in stock!

Meet The Brand: Essie

I was quite excited when I brought these, there's something quite special for me when I buy myself something quite high range and expensive as a little treat!


Cath Kidston Love...

A very quick post today, as I kinda want to show off my new mugs and just prove to you all that I think I'm addicted to buying all things Cath Kidston. It could be anything and I'd still buy it! I've been looking everywhere for a link to these, but it seems they are an old range (I brought them from a lovely lady on BBS) so I feel like I have a bit of a rarity! ha! Anyway here's a link to something similar if you love these spots!
