Poundland Jewellery Mini-Haul

May 6, 2015
Poundland jewellery

Ring holder – £1.00 I love a bargain and on any given shopping trip simply cannot resist a browse around all and any pound shops in the  nearby vicinity. I was aware that Poundland (the undisputed king of all pound shops!) had launched a jewellery range last year sometime, but I’ve never really seen many things that much grabbed my interest. A lot of it looked cheap and nearly all of the pieces in my local stores were gold toned…

The Body Shop Detox Party

February 5, 2015
Body Shop Detox Party002

Sunday night we were invited to a Bloggers Detox Party at the Birmingham Bullring Body Shop, and after the fun we had at the last The Body Shop event we knew we were in a for a great evening of pampering and treats! We were inevitably early and made a beeline for the Starbucks next door where we had what can only be described as the absolute best soy chai lattes ever. The queue for the most heavenly beverage of vegan…

Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple EDP

January 28, 2015
Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple

My very first Glossybox contained an adorable mini-sized bottle of Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple, and I’ve been lusting after a bottle ever since. Luckily Amie is amazing when it comes to picking me presents directly from my cosmetics wish list and she very kindly bought me a bottle for Christmas. As you can see I’ve already made a tiny dent in it, and honestly I’m such a fan of this fragrance I can’t see it lasting long at all! So…

Why I’m cancelling my beauty boxes

January 19, 2015
Glossybox January 2014

After what feels like forever, I’ve finally decided to cancel my Glossybox. Glossybox was my first subscription box, and to be honest I’ve had a good run, but lately I’ve found myself getting less and less excited by the service, and after one too many disappointing boxes I’ve decided to take a break from not only Glossybox, but also Birchbox, Love me Beauty and You Beauty Discovery. One of the main reasons is that my subscription beauty boxes were racking…

January Sales Haul

January 9, 2015
January Haul001

You know when you probably shouldn’t go shopping but you do anyway? Well Pants and I decided that a touch of retail therapy would be the perfect pick-me-up when we went into the city to send my lovely boyfriend back to university in Holland after the winter holidays, in fact the proximity of Debenhams to the coach station means it was all sort of meant to be. I knew right away that Christmas money would almost certainly be sent to…

Pink Parcel Review

January 5, 2015
Pink Parcel Review

There seems to be a new subscription box popping up every five minutes these days, but I’ve yet to see anything else as genuinely useful as Pink Parcel. There’s no point in trying to dress it up into something coy or fancy – this is a period survival box and it is fantastic! You choose from your preferred type and brand of sanitary products (including most of the familiar names – Lilets, Tampax, Always etc) and they send you enough to…

#BHMBloggerMeet @ The Body Shop

December 4, 2014
BHMBloggermeet November f 2014 IMG_1765

      It’s rare that we will venture together into Birmingham City Centre this time of year (there are plenty of quieter spots to do your Christmas shopping without the manic queues you get in town!) but we were very excited to be invited to the #BHMBloggerMeet, and couldn’t resist the lure of  a night in The Body Shop with fellow local Bloggers! Of course whilst we were already in the heaving shopping centres it would have been rude…

Free Nails Inc. polishes with Glamour

November 11, 2014
Free Nails Inc with Glamour

  This month Glamour are really spoiling us with four very autumnal polishes from Nails Inc – Tate, Hanover Square, Marylebone Mews and Wigmore Street.  They are all absolutely gorgeous shades and worth £11 each, so considering the magazine is only £2.00 you’re getting £44.00 of nail polishes for £8 (which is far too much of a bargain for anyone to resist I’m sure!) All four were instant must-haves for me, but I think the very vampy purple hues of Wigmore Street have stolen…

West Midlands Vegan Festival

November 3, 2014
West Midlands Vegan Festival

  A week on Saturday we pried ourselves away from the internet and our home offices to go to Vegan Fest 2014 in Wolverhampton. We took our trusty carnivorous band mates Adam and Matt along so they could sample some delights. This event had been in our calendar for a few months since we couldn’t get down to London (next year maybe!) but having such an event almost on our door steps really couldn’t be missed. We met many lovely people…

Hershey’s and Pepsi Flavoured Lotta Love Lip Balms

October 28, 2014
Hersheys Lip Balms 1

I’m an avid collector of flavoured lip-balms, I think it’s because it reminds me of being a pre-teen and spending my hard earned pocket money on the little tubs from The Body Shop, so when I saw this set of four Hersheys balms for only £2.99 in my local B&M  I snapped it up right away! I thought at first they were import Lipsmackers, but they are made by a company called Lotta Luv who actually license lip balms from quite a few…
