Birchbox Review June 2014 – Global Strikers

June 15, 2014
Birchbox June 2014

With a cheerful nod towards World Cup season, the June Birchbox has a “Global Strikers” theme and a cute bag emblazoned with the Brazil flag colours. I’m a huge fan of the World Cup, and in fact delayed writing this very blog post so that I could enjoy the England V Italy match fully (IE prepare many beers!). Unfortunately it was a loss for England, but I enjoyed every moment of it none the less! Before kicking off (hur hur) the…

An Accidental Haul

October 24, 2013

We set out for our little shopping trip yesterday with a thrifty mindset and a small budget. Four hours later that all went out the window! We’ve added links where the items are available online, otherwise you’ll have to hit the highstreet and track them down yourself! Red links are Amie’s treats and blue are Gemma’s treasure, black things we both picked up! In our defence we did start off well so first up is the charity shop treasure we…

O.P.I Tiny Treats

September 26, 2013

It took me a while to get into O.P.I.

My latest purchase was this adorable Tiny Treats set containing mini 3.75ml ChipSkip, Nail Envy Natural Nail Strengthener and RapiDry Top Coat, a 30ml Expert Touch Lacquer Remover and…

A mini haul and some unsuccessful shopping!

September 23, 2013

I had to pop to my local shopping mall today to pick up a birthday card and present for my sister and though I’m trying to save money (and thus stop buying lots of make-up!) I promised myself one treat. I headed straight for Sally and peered helplessly at the O.P.I stand till a clerk came to ask if I needed help. Seems this was due on today’s delivery but she “wouldn’t know till she had sorted it all, so…

NOTD – OPI I don’t give a Rotterdam & Revlon Stunning

July 17, 2013

  This was my first OPI varnish and I have to admit it was the name, not the colour that sold it to me. I purchased “I don’t give a Rotterdam” purely on the basis that I missed my boyfriend (who lives in Rotterdam!) and the name cheered me up! Luckily I found it on Fragrance Direct for £3.99 so managed to grab a bargain with full RRP at around £11.50!     It’s a lovely bluey grey with a…
