Free product joys

August 13, 2013

It’s always sad when festival season finishes, however it is made slightly better when you come back to parcels that contain free things!!! On my return from Wacken, I received my two free products after signing up to Birchbox: Wen Cleansing Conditioner, which I confess I used during my first shower back at home and it felt amazing! I was also filled with joy at receiving another L’Occitane moisturiser. I already have one of these from a Glossybox a few…

Superdrugs Colour performance permanent creme colour.

July 21, 2013

Since hair dye day was fast approaching, I stood for at least 10 minutes in Superdrug looking for my usual blonde to lighten my roots. Normally a user of Live colour foam, much to my dismay, they had sold out.

July 2013 Glossybox

July 13, 2013
GB inside July

  Glossybox day is always the most exciting day of the month! I’ve been doubly excited about the July box since I saw the gorgeous turquoise print a few days ago as part of the “ready for summer” theme, and I’m glad to say the contents were just as exciting!     After a long day in the sun at work organising a performance for some pupils at my music school, I was filled with glee at my lovely blue…
