WELL WELL WELL. what a terrible week i've had, glad it's over etc etc. it subsequently meant no blog posts. wah wah. i'm currently on a mission to find a new job, ever since i had to literally prove my jeans weren't leggings on dress down friday. (yes, SERIOUSLY.) one good thing that did come of my week was the groupon body shop offer - pay £12 for a £30 voucher.. i don't even shop at body shop normally but decided to give it a go!
i didn't really know what i wanted when i bought the voucher, but i figured i needed new skincare stuff so may as well branch out a little.. i bought an exfoliator, toner and day moisturiser from the seaweed range upon recommendation from the very helpful sales assistant! i haven't used them long enough to comment on how they work, but they seem to be doing their job. TIME WILL TELL. or something.
i was going to leave it at that and buy some cheap things to make up the rest of the money until i remembered about the limited edition makeup range which gem mentioned. i bought the illuminating face base and tailored cheek tint - not sure if the products are limited edition or just the packaging? anyway i was a bit scared of the face base because i swear it made me look like a little orange when i first applied it! but underneath/on top of foundation it is rather lovely. i fully recommend the cheek tint, it's a clear gel which turns the right shade of pink for your skin tone, so kind of like the barry m touch of magic lip paint for your cheeks. it's a really vibrant pink on me (just like the lipstick!), and blends really well into the skin.
so because i'd spent over a certain amount on skincare, £10 more than the voucher, and bought 2 makeup products i got these items FREE. i like free things. i couldn't decide which flavour body butter to get at all, but settled for lemon in the end.. the other flavours kind of made me feel sick. especially the coconut, which is apparently a favourite. urgh! i can just about get away with the lemon though. smells.... fresh.
i've just bought another groupon voucher for a full set of individual nouveau eyelash extensions for £24 instead of £60. i'm a little apprehensive about it really - i haven't heard the best reviews but i've been tempted to try them for a while.. so even if they don't work out so well, at least i didn't pay full price? god my logic is ridiculous.
i will leave you with this picture of our beautifully decorated cupcakes from last weekend. yes david, you did the best one :)
