Pusheen is the star of www.Pusheen.com. As a big cat lover I fell in love with this cute animated character when I first saw her.
I ordered this T-shirt from Hey Chicadee for $24.00 which is about £15. This shirt is super soft 50% Cotton, 50% Polyester. Also it has very lovely pink colour and features Pusheen making biscuits / kneading dough, which makes this even more girly.
Today I got my Glossybox and when I first opened it I was so excited to see all these beauty products inside. Like I said, I am trying to experiment more with some new brands and I had heard of only a few in this box.
This months theme is 'Get ready for spring!' and all these products go well with this season.
I am very excited about Mitchell and Peach Body Cream. This moisturiser is made in Kent, England. I have heard about this brand before and I am very lucky to have a chance to try it before buying an original size. This 40ml of body cream contains honey, organic cocoa, shea butter and vitamin B5. The smell is very lovely and fresh, almost like you have taken a walk in the countryside. Full size 180ml costs £36.
Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair 60 Second Treatment Shot is a weekly treatment for your hair. It is 15ml (£1.49) of intense care and repair. I actually like that this treatment is a sample, as I never know exactly how much is enough to use. Dove just made it so easy to take care of damaged hair quickly and intensively. Also it is perfect to carry around on a holiday to revive damaged hair from the sun.
Helenere Maitrise du Temps is an intensive serum that moisturises deeply while preventing skin ageing and adds skin elasticity to give a brighter complexion. This serum is recommended to use a few drops every morning and evening, massaging lightly around the eyes and mouth. £38.50 for 10ml. Wow, that is a very pricy little bottle!
Sleek MakeUP Pout Polish is tiny lip balm full of nourishment and contains SPF15, almond oil, shea butter and vitamin E. I love lip balms! My lips are so dry and I definitely need to moisturise them frequently. This lip balm leaves lips super soft and gives them a bit of shine and colour! £4.49 for 10g. My colour is Bare Minimum 963. I am already using it! Perfect!
Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Shimmer Powders is an eyeshadow as well as mix of nail polish or lip gloss powder, which can be added to customise your own make-up. It is a full size £12.99 for 2.38g.
I like every single product in this Glossybox! I am definitely satisfied and it was worth all my £10 + postage & packing.
I found my new crush! These rubber flats look really comfortable and are just super cute. Brazilian footwear label Melissa has been producing its trademark
“jelly" shoes since 1979. Manufactured by footwear giant Grendene, which is the
world’s largest manufacturer of sandals, they have become one of the
country’s most successful and best-loved brands. To celebrate their 25th birthday, Melissa approached Brazilian design
duo Fernando and Humberto Campana to create a new range of shoes and
bags in their signature style.
They had already used the technique, which they call “zigzag", to create
a range of furniture items, such as chairs, stools and screens, with
loosely-woven seats backs and surfaces. The same process seemed
appropriate to mould “jelly" shoes, since the resulting fabric has
numerous gaps that would allow air to circulate around the feet.
They have created 6 amazing styles for Melissa. You can get them in different colours as well!
This month I decided I would do a Spring giveaway, as I mentioned in an earlier post. I've been receiving many beauty boxes and each time there has always been one or two things I didn't really need myself, so I thought the best thing to do would to be to pass on these beauty products to my readers. I will start with Percy & Reed No-Fuss Flawlessness Dry Conditioner. It is full size (150ml) product. Give your hair healthy softness and shine. This fabulous
conditioning formula reduces damage caused by brushing as well as adding
gorgeous, glossy shine to even very dry hair.
Second one is Inner Me Beautify Me Vitamin Complex. These are beauty supplements for skin, hair and nails. This vitamin complex has 28 capsules. Two capsules to be taken daily with or after a meal, so it will be a 2 week supply. These capsules contain vitamin C and the trace minerals selenium and zinc.
I also had a huge wardrobe clear out and found this amazing Esprit dress. It is a lovely water blue colour, size 10. I am size 10 but it would fit even up to a size 12, as it is a bit loose on me. I have worn it only once, so it is basically brand new and in a very good condition. I bought this dress from Amazon. I have also added a link, so you could check it out.
To enter the drawfor all of this above, all you need to do is follow my blog, share this post on your own blog and comment below so I know my potential winner! The draw closes on 23rd March 3.00pm GMT. Also, keep checking back with me as I'll have another giveaway coming up soon!
Igaksjuhuks kirjutan eesti keelse versiooni ka. Esimest korda oma blogis teen väikese Giveaway! Kaks esimest on ilutoodete vallast. Paari kuu jooksul on mul kogunenud mitu huvitavat toodet, mida tahaksin oma lugejatele ära anda. Esimeseks on Percy & Reed No-Fuss Flawlessness Dry Conditioner. See juuksehoolduvahend on mõeldud kahjustatud juustele. Suurepärasne toode, mis parandab juukseid ja toob tagasi loomuliku sära ja pehmuse. Enne kasutamist korralikult loksutada ja pihustada 10 cm kauguselt. Teine toode Inner Me Beautify Me Vitamin Complex on kahe nädala varu. Need tabletid on toidulisandid, mõeldud nahale, küüntele ja juustele. Võtta tuleb 2 tabletti päevas söögiga või pärast sööki. Tabletid sisaldavad: räni, vitamiin C, tsink, seleen, vask, jood. Ja kolmandaks loosin välja Esprit ilusa meresinise kleidi. Kandnud olen seda kleiti vaid ühe korra. Kleit on suurusele UK 10(EU 38). Kuna kleit ei ole väga ümber keha, siis ma arvan, et see sobiks ilusti ka suurusele UK 12(EU 40). Loosimisest osa võtmiseks jälgi minu blogi, jaga seda postitust ning jäta kommentaar, et ma saaksin võitajaga hiljem ühendust võtta. Loosimine läheb lukku nädala pärast, 23. märts, Eesti aja järgi kell 17.00. Head loosiõnne kõigile!
My box for March is Edition 3. I was thinking to skip this month but when I checked and saw what they were offering this month, I was very tempted and made an order. This Love Me Beauty box had a really good selection of 6 products.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company False Lashes in 'Gracie' - Full size, RRP £6. I am starting with these, as I never wear false lashes and can't add any positive or negative comment about this product. What I can say though is that on the weekend I will try to do my first giveaway, and these lashes will definitely be included with a few other things!
Deep Steep Foot Stick in 'Candy Mint' - Full size (15ml), RRP £3.60. This foot stick contains powerful essential oils of organic Shea and Cocoa Butters. I absolutely love products for feet. After a long day at work or walking it is just so good to give your feet a little treatment. You can apply it on the heels and cuticles or for the full treatment it can be applied to the entire foot. I like to cover my feet with cotton socks to help the product to lock in moisture.
Nip + Fab Viper Venom Eye Fix - Full size (15ml), RRP £14.95. A refreshing eye gel in a cooling roll on applicator with wrinkle minimising LIFTONIN and SYN-AKE to smooth the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles around eyes. It is definitely something for me to try, as skin around my eyes gets very dry sometimes. I think it is an amazing size eye pen to carry around and give your eyes a hydrating boost whenever you need it.
Murad Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask - Sample size (7.5ml), RRP £25. This treatment frees skin from dull, dry surface cells and trapped impurities and an antioxidant rich formula defends skin from harmful free radical damage. I am very excited to try this. I actually have tried pomegranate juice as a mask on my skin. Years ago I read an article about pomegranate and I read it's meant to help make your skin youthful and clean-looking.
BlanX White Shock Toothpaste - Sample size (15ml), RRP £7.50 (50ml). I have read a couple of good reviews about this product before and it was a very nice surprise to see that this months beauty box is offered a sample to try. So before buying a full size product, I could experiment to see if it met my expectations.
Quintessentially English Bath Salts in 'Vintage Bouquet' - Sample size 50g, RRP £4.25 (100g). Quintessentially English bath salts are made with dead sea salt and pure essential oils. Vintage Bouquet is a wonderful aroma mixed of Jasmine, Bergamot and Geranium. Sadly I do not have a bath in my flat, though I might hold onto on this product for a little bit as I love bath salts, fizzing balls or anything that helps to lighten the mood in a steamy hot bath and bathroom. They really help to relax and soothe the skin amazingly.
I am trying to experiment more with unknown brands and different cosmetics. Box costs £10 + postage & packing, but after receiving very good sample and full size products, I think it is definitely worth it. Overall I am very happy with this months box.
Last month I subscribed to Elle UK magazine. Everybody who subscribed got a free Elizabeth Arden gift - 12 issues was just £18 and the gift worth £65. Eight Hour CreamSkin Protectant contains super emollients and vitamin E, which are really good for restoring, calming and renewing skin. It helps to soothe dry hands, minor burns or sunburn and cracked lips. Basically, you can apply it anywhere your skin needs protecting and moisturizing. It also helps to smooth cuticles and nails. I am already in love with the product. I have very dry and cracked skin, especially in windy weather. Beautiful Colour Lash Enhancing Mascara is a multi-dimensional mascara, which immediately volumises, lengthens and curls lashes. I am big Max Factor mascara fan but of course I am very excited to try this one out too. Beautiful Colour Moisturizing Lipstick - Red Door Red 02 might be a bit too dark for me. I have always been afraid of red lipsticks as they draw so much attention, but at the same time I think I should try something stronger than nude or pink.
Finally, Spring has arrived in Manchester and I had the chance to wear something lighter than my parka. I already mentioned this tweed coat in the last post I made about my Sheinside order. When it first arrived I was a bit disappointed. I ordered a size S, though I should probably have gone with a size bigger as it looked more like a blazer/cardigan on me. It has 3/4 sleeves and is made from a very light material. Now after wearing it outside I've realised it is definitely something I need in this kind of weather. Bag is Lorbac which is actually quite vintage, as it was given to me by my mum. I've loved this bag since I was little. It is a cute, small size. I love black leather bags. The scarf I am wearing is also my mums - this is my favourite scarf. I like the simple grey colour and curtain-like material. Please don't mind my hair colour, I am trying to grow this dark dye out. And a little note - it was very windy today near the canal, so my hair is going everywhere!
The Simone Rocha Autumn/Winter 2014 Ready To Wear Collection was one of my favourites at London Fashion Week. Searching through Next, I found this skirt which is very similar to Simone's. Beautiful texture and I am completely in love in this whole check netting detail idea.
My two favourites from Simone Rocha's Collection.
I like this pink version too!
Skirt from Next. Price £48, most of the small sizes are sold out.
