Too Good To Pass Up

Lili’s Pink / Balearic Cool / Pink Blush / Magenta Devine / Utopia / Raspberry Crush

I picked up 6 nail polishes in the Models Own 50% Sale. I tried to be reserved and I think I did well considering I had ALOT more in my basket before I edited it down to the 6 you see above. The sale is still on & it ends on the 2nd October so be quick if you want to get 50% off.

I’m trying to resist placing a second order. They are such lovely polishes and as you can see I picked up a few pinky reds. I do like those sorts of colours but there are not too great over the colder months. I need some darker shades for the upcoming months.

Did you pick up anything in this amazing sale? Or do you plan on putting in an order? Let me know what your favourite Models Own polishes are. I’d love to know.

Pink Bubbly

I picked up two of these Limited Edition Pink Bubbly Vaseline pots from Selfridges when I was down in London at the beginning of the month. One is for me (of course) and the other is for Casey of beauty 101 as we’re doing a Beauty Box Swap. This is our second swap. Love getting bits together for a beauty swap. It’s so exciting.

I only picked up two – some people had like thirty of them. Hmmmm a little excessive me thinks. My hubby couldn’t believe how crazy people were going for them. They’ve now since released them in selected Superdrug stores. So if you want one be quick.

I’m a fan of Vaseline and have had a fair few tins over the years. They are so easy to just throw in your handbag and the packaging being in a tin can withstand being knocked about in your bag – if you’re like me & just throw all sorts into your bag things can come out a little bashed.

This Pink Bubbly Edition is a nice touch. I really like it – it has a lovely fruity smell. If you’d asked me to guess what scent it was without seeing I’d never guess correct. But that aside it’s a lovely sweet fruity smell and not to overbearing. There isn’t really a colour to it. It looks a very light pink in the tin but that really doesn’t translate to my lips. It’s just a fun inexpensive product. Valseline is always a winter must have as no one likes getting chapped lips. What can I say I’m a sucker for limited editions.

Pink Bubbly Vaseline – £3.49 from Selfridges

Have you picked up one of these, what do you think of it?

When it comes round to the colder months I really feel my skin and hair start to change it goes really dry and dull so this weeks wishlist (my first one) is mostly focused on products to help brighten the complexion & look of your skin and hair.

I’m so excited to get my hands on some of the Avon Moroccan Argan Oil Leave in Treatment it sounds so good. Also every time I’m at the Benefit counter I swatch the Watts Up & I always talk myself out of buying it – NO MORE, next time I will buy it. I’ve lusted after it for far too long!!
