Happy Monday!

Just a quick post from me to say yay, Monday is nearly over! Like most people, I'm not keen on Mondays and today has been incredibly stressy at work, which wasn't very fun, but I did at least make it to my Zumba class even if it was a bit of a mad dash. Zumba was as funny as ever as I'm not a natural dancer but at least the class is a good workout. Afterwards I was so so hungry, so I  indulged in Blue Monday at Yo Sushi and it was quite yum, but note to self, Yo Sushi may be not the best idea on a post Zumba hunger pang as my eyes were definitely bigger than my tummy!

Maybelline 24hr Colour Stay Tattoo eyeshadow

I've heard a lot about these cream eyeshadows on blogs and You Tube recently. I really wanted the aqua blue one: Edgy Emerald as I wanted a close match to the Makeup Forever Aqua Cream in Turquoise so that I could try out the colour pop flicked eyeliner look. As the Colour Tattoos were not available in the UK up until a few days ago I tracked down this one on Ebay a few weeks ago and it arrived today...yay so exciting!!! I love the colour of it. I wouldn't describe it as an Emerald Green more as an Aqua Turquoise really, which is perfect. It stays on really well and doesn't rub off so I think it'll be ideal as an eyeliner. I really want to try out some of the other colours now such as the 'Tough as Taupe' shade. They are on sale for £4.99 in Superdrug, who are also doing a 3 for 2 offer at the moment and I think Boots will also be stocking them. I have a feeling though that these may already be sold out as they are in huge demand, but hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on a few more soon. I'll try and put up pics of the colour pop flicked eyeliner look soon.

Benefit's Tan About Town

I haven't been very well this week and I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself this morning as I was doing a few errands so I popped into Boots to have a bit of a browse and I found this.....Benefit's Tan About Town. It contains travel size versions of Hoola bronzer in medium, Some-kind of gorgeous foundation faker in medium and BAD gal lash mascara. I really like the BAD gal mascara and I'd been wanting to try out the other items for ages so was really pleased with this. I like that it's travel sized as it's perfect for putting in my handbag make up bag. The kit also contained a voucher for a free makeover at Benefit counters at Boots, which is exciting.  Benefit's Tan About Town only costs £9 and as I used my Boots points it was absolutely free and cheered me up no end!!!

So today, in very exciting news, I received my Harrods edition Glossybox!!! I've been eagerly awating this for the last few weeks and knowing that Glossybox were collaborating with Harrods, I knew I would be in for a luxurious treat. I love that my Glossybox always arrives on a Monday as once a month I actually look forward to a Monday. This is what I received:

Clarins - Extra Firming Body Cream: 'A formula rich in regenerating and firming plant extracts which immediately helps to lift and tone, for firmer and a younger looking body.' I was really happy to receive this as I love Clarins products. This comes in a 30ml size which I thought was quite decent and will give me the chance to try it out properly. It's for use all over, but think I may just try it out on targeted areas.

Burberry Beauty - Miniature Lip Cover Rosewood No.4: 'This soft satin lipstick offers intense moisture and luminous long-lasting colour for fuller lips' I was really pleased to find this in my Glossybox. It does feel quite luxurious and I'd really wanted to try out the Burberry make up range. The packaging is quite nice and they even managed to get the Burberry pattern on the lipstick! I like the colour as it suits my Asian/olive skin tone.

Ojon - Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum: This weightless, highly concentrated serum helps restore brilliant shine and softness to dull, damaged hair. I have to confess that I have a bit of a weakness where hair products are concerned and I'm always on the look out for a hair product that'll make my hair look amazing, so I was really, really pleased to get this. I really liked the packaging and that you have a oil dropper. It says to warm one or two drops in the palms of the hand and to dry/damp hair ends. I'd been wanting to try this range for ages, so I can't wait to use this after I wash my hair in the morning!

Fendi - Fan Di Fendi eau de toilette: A luminous floral fragrance, radiant with sunlight and leaving a lasting impression of light Roman leather on the skin. Hmm well I wasn't exactly sure about the description and the leather on the skin thing. I wasn't also sure about receiving another perfume sample as I've received quite a few from Glossybox and not really been enamoured with any of them, but I was excited about it being Fendi. The sample comes in a cute mini bottle and I have to say I love, love the fragrance!! It's light and fresh which is what I look for in a fragrance, so I'm quite tempted to get it in a bigger size.

Erno Laszlo: The Hollywood Collection: 5 piece cream gift set: This set commemorates 85 years of Erno Laszlo with formulas inspired by our iconic devotees. I did love the presentation of this on the outside; a very glam black and gold  'Hollywood' envelop, but I was a little disappointed about the sachet samples. I think little jars/pots would have been better. I haven't yet tried the creams yet, but will give an update once I have.

There was also a 20% off selected beauty products discount code when shopping on, so not bad at all. I'm really pleased with my box overall.

Did you receive a Glossy box this month? What were your thoughts on it?

MUA Love Hearts Range

I'm so excited about the MUA Love Hearts range!! I've read a few things about them online and as soon as I saw them I knew I had to get my hands on them. The range consists of lip balms and nail varnishes, each costing just £2!! I got three different colours in the lip balms and nail varnishes. These are the first MUA products I've purchased and I'm really impressed with the quality of them. The colours are so pretty and both the lip balms and nail varnishes have a really good consistency and finish. The MUA range is exclusive to Superdrug.

I have a Sugar Lips pink lip balm and U R FAB rose pink nail varnish which I'll be giving away soon to mark the launch of my blog. More on that soon.


Equals Live - International Women's Day

On Friday I went to the Equals Live:Women of the World Event at the Southbank Centre. The event which was lead by Annie Lennox, was part of the London International Women's Day - Women of the World celebrations and featured Emeli Sande, Katy B and Jess Mills. The event was incredible and Annie Lennox was really amazing and inspiring! Emeli Sande has such a fantastic voice and her live performances just blew us away!
