February Favourites 2013

I hope you've all had a fabulous February?
Here are my Favourites this month.....

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint.. I adore this lip balm, it taste amazing as well as leaving my lips really soft & moisturised, I have not gone one day without using it due to the Freezing weather we've been having.

Guerlain Terracotta Four Season Bronzer - Blondes

For the first time, Terracotta, the ultimate in bronzing powders, offers not one, but four shades for each of its two harmonies – Blondes and Brunettes. 


The new powder is ideal for customising your tan to reflect the season and achieving a perfectly matt result. By combining or layering at will these four wonderfully matte shades, you can sculpt your complexion and reproduce your dream tan to perfection.

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

Have you heard.....There's a new foundation on the block, so i thought I'd give it a whirl! I have had Revlon colourstay in my collection for a while & think it is a great long lasting Drugstore foundation but a little too heavy for me to wear on a daily basis.


When i heard of this foundation i was intrigued, with SPF 20, it's perfect for the day, lasts like colourstay but with a light/medium coverage.
I got mine in Shell 130 which is a very good match for my skin. It's quite neutral in colour, not too pink or yellow.

First we have the Ted Baker Leda Large wash bag in Bright Pink with a nude pink bow detail & rose gold metal work, this little beaut did set me back £29.00 but i fell in love with it & the rest is history...It's mine!

Bags of Neon Love!

I was browsing on ASOS this week when i came across a bag from River Island, I instantly fell in Love, but as I've been on a spending ban i closed the page down & went on with my business, but i just couldn't get it out of my head, i was imagining the outfits I'd wear with it & occasions I'd where it too! Later that evening i went back on to ASOS, made a sad face to my Hubbie & showed him the bag..... I waited & then he said OK! (What a Sweetheart!) he'd buy it for me TaDahhh! Within seconds my ninja fingers had put it into my basket & checked out before he could change his mind!
It arrived this Morning......
